    Re: 2-M677s

    Cool find. Too bad they are in Minnesota, I would be seriously concerned about rust issues.

    Re: IH Travelall 4x4

    My dad actually used to have a 1967 IH Travelette. Very cool rig and I still wish he hadn't sold it. His was 4x4, 345 V8, 4 speed manual, and shortbed. Very similar to this.

    Re: D44 Eaton Locker Install

    Looking good! It is a fair amount of work, but you are doing it the right way. On the stands makes things so much easier. Are you planning new gears for the locker?

    Re: 2002 Tundra

    Learned something new yesterday. Even though my 2002 has a "tow package" it apparently isn't set up to have a brake controller. 2003 was the first year the Tundra could have a brake controller...

    Re: Career Advice...?

    Just a thought - have you looked into working at a STEM school? A science teacher who has some hands-on skills might really come in handy. Imagine building different mechanical items such a robots,...

    Re: My Truck Was Stolen Last Night

    That really sucks. My neighbor had his stolen a year ago. Turned up a couple weeks later with a blown t-case and no wheels/tires. Hopefully yours comes back quickly and complete!

    What was the cost of the locker? I hadn't heard of them yet. The rear e-locker is a great option.

    Thanks Jim.

    Since this was a corporate truck for a large corporation, they did their own service. They said there were no maintenance records because of that. I am now believing that there were...

    Re: 2002 Tundra

    If you are serious about them, try to get a 2003+. They will have the larger front brakes. I had to buy calipers and upgrade mine. Those calipers are in high demand since the larger calipers are...

    Just wrapped it up and got the engine to start for a couple seconds. Starts and runs great. No leftover bolts which is always a good thing. No coolant in it yet as I intend to drain the block and...

    Saturday morning project was to install the front hitch receiver. Removed the "shield" and the wing trim all as one unit. There are 6 bolt holes, 4 of which are the factory tow hook holes. There...

    In anticipation of installing a larger trans cooler, I wanted to make more room on the driver side in front of the radiator. The horn was in the way, but it was held on by a single bolt. There is a...

    Re: 2002 Tundra

    The most recent project has been the front brakes. The 2000-2002 had smaller calipers and pads. This apparently resulted in overheating the pads and rotors which would warp the rotors. I could...

    The headlights were really yellowed, so I picked up a set of Eagle Eyes replacements for $40 shipped. Much better, but again, I think there is room for improvement. The bulbs that came with the...

    I swapped on some different wheels/tires, and the rear drums basically fell off the truck. The brakes on the truck were just about worthless when I bought it. The parking brake didn't work at all,...

    One of my maintenance items was spark plugs. The truck had just basic standard plugs in it. The first 2 came out with a bit of a struggle. Since it has aluminum heads, I really didn't want to...

    Re: 2002 Tundra

    So I have found some interesting things about this truck. Since it was a fleet truck, I believe it may have been custom ordered.

    The upgrades:
    - LSD
    - Tow package (transmission cooler, hitch,...

    Looks like replacements are easy to find. I would simply replace it.
