    Supercharged 5VZFE and cooling

    Hi all, My 97 T100 has a 5VZFE and the TRD Supercharger installed. It's the black (2nd Gen) model. Everything works great for the most part. The one issue I have is going up long grades in the Summer. The temperature normally runs 182-195, but it will rapidly get over 220F on long climbs in...

    7 weeks of searching paid off this weekend

    So this obviously isn't the live find we'd all like, but I have to say that I'm really proud of my team right now, along with the numerous other teams that helped search and the USAR guys who went down a nasty, 140' deep hole with HAZMAT at the bottom to collect her. FYI, we're actually called...

    Flippac build-out

    Hi all, I just ordered a Flippac for My T100. Previously, I'd been using a Snugtop fiberglass top. I had built a custom safari rack with Hi-Lift, NATO can and shovel storage, interior and exterior lighting, and an interior gear rack. Pics: Now the Flippac isn't really set up for a roof...

    Rebuilt CV joints?

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a quality rebuilt CV? The one I replaced on my T100 lat year (NAPA brand/painted green) already has a cracked boot. The originals from Toyota seem to last much better. Arclight

    Down hole camera rig - Help me spend some money

    Hi all, This is going to be an odd request. I volunteer with a search and rescue team in California. Recently, we've had more callouts for mine-related searches and incidents. We are a technical team that can lower people down into environments like this, but it's slow and it incurs risk. If...

    Amtrak Odyssey

    This is a short trip I made last year. Some friends were going out to a regional caving festival near Ash Fork, AZ. Everyone was leaving Wednesday night, but I had to work until Friday. The solution? Put my bike on the Amtrak in Los Angeles, train it out to Williams Junction, and then ride the...

    The "B Team" or backup gear

    Here's something I thought would be worth sharing: My backup equipment bag. On our team, we don't have a specific list of things we're required to take at all times. Instead, we generally put our packs together once we know what our mission/assignment is going to be. Our team covers of lot of...

    5VZFE Engine Noise

    Hi all, I just returned from a trip to central Nevada. We had an awesome time exploring ghost towns and visiting stuff. I'll post a trip report soon. Unfortunately, my truck started developing a nasty sound about 475mi from home near Mina, NV. I limped it into Reno (150mi) and towed it back...

    Tools and spares for Toyota Trucks

    Hi all, I'm trying to fine-tune my box of off-road fixing supplies. Currently, I've got everything in a large Contico box with wheels. Most of my off-roading experience was with my old Bronco and fixing other people's trucks who didn't take care of maintenance. The Toyota-specific stuff is new...

    Power distribution boards?

    Hi all, I wanted to share this open-source hardware project I built. It's a 4-channel lighting/power controller. It's based on the Arduino micro-controller and has 4x1A outputs and 4xinputs. I built this so that I could have have a custom control for a 5m LED lighting strip in my camper and...

    New Build: T100 SAR and expedition rig

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum so I wanted to introduce myself and start getting some input on this project. I live in Southern California, and I picked up a 97 T100 about 3 weeks ago. My last 4x4 was a 78 Ford Bronco that I had for about 15 years. Vehicle needs: I volunteer with San...
