Finally knocked out the fluids for the diffs and transfer case as well as an oil change this weekend. Also ordered transmission fluid/filter and upping my braking game with this:

Ordered stop tech stainless lines and new fluid too. All this should help bring the unit to a halt once it’s loaded down and with larger tires.

Still waiting on my StopTech rotors and pads but they should be in the end of the month (fingers crossed)...in the mean time I got a few little parts in:

Cruise and intermediate wiper switches! Should make daily driving a bit easier. Through the wiper switch in ASAP but need to order a few more small pieces for the cruise switch.

new wiper switch all ready to rock:

Took a little trip out to Grass Lake Campground in Benzie County Mi with my boy, my buddy, and his son. Just an overnighter for the first camping trip but we had fun.

All the stuff fit behind the seats really well

Rest of my cruise control parts showed up and got it wired into the steering wheel.

But sadly no joy on actually working, did some digging on a tundra forum and looks like I need to run some more wiring to finish it off.

Took the family out for a little canoeing. Good thing a 15.5’ canoe totally fits and doesn’t look stupid 😂

Had most of my brake parts show up today...full StopTech kit, look good and should slow the truck down a lot better once I go to bigger tires. Also got my spark plugs in this week!

Well had my dash light up like a Christmas tree a week or so ago. 4x4, abs, and traction control all went out. Took it to a local mechanic to have them see what was going on and it seemed to be the rear abs harness. Replaced the harness and the wheel sensors but my dash still remained REALLY festive with all the lights. So after some poking around underneath I found this little guy:

So I have a new connector and pins coming this way form Toyota and going to try my hand at rewiring the connector.

UPS guy brought me the parts to fix the wiring today so I’ll try my hand at splicing the new connectors in Tomorrow.

Also brought my rear brake calipers, dust shields (a whopping $230 a piece), and some other rear end seals and stuff I’ll be replacing when I do the dust shields. Waiting on my front calipers to dive into all that so I can do my new SS lines and fluid swap all at once...they should be in this week.

Going to be fixing up my front wheel wells tomorrow too. The liners had been rubbed by tires at some point in their life so they have holes and some fasteners are missing too.

whole gaggle of small parts along with the “golden dust shields”

4WD, ABS, and traction control all back up and running! Soldered in and shrink wrapped the new connector, didn’t turn out too bad for my first go around! Also sprayed down the undercarriage with a few cans of fluid film while it was on the lift. Going to make this a habit since I’m up in the salt capital of the world Michigan.

Tried getting the new wheel well liners in but they seem to be different then my oem and ran out of time to monkey with them today...I’ll try again later.

I'm huge Fluid Film fan. I've been applying it for a few years now and my frame stays nearly perfect all winter. Unfortunately I ran out of time to do it this year, so my frame isn't as clean as it has been. I'm going to clean and touch it up in the spring, then be sure to do another round of Fluid Film before next winter.

We don't have a ton of salt on the roads here, but the de-icer is pretty nasty stuff.

You use spray cans or did you get the kit with a spray gun?

Front calipers showed up today from Toyota. Always forget how beefy the fronts are one these trucks. I’ll be getting to all the brakes a week from Monday, then a few more maintenance things and on to my lift and tires. Should have it lifted this spring!
