Upper 20s here, installing new-to-me axle goes quick quick but not so much moving the shoes over when fingers are frozen.
No worries, the woman of the house was okay with my doing an in-kitchen shoe transfer.

The 4xI bumper has different shaped winch access holes and no logo cut into it. That looks like the All Pro Apex bumper.

Whiteline for the lower control arm bushings, SPC for cam bolts and sleeves, Energy Suspension for the steering gear bushings, Prothane for the sway bar bushings, Overland Custom Design for sway bar end links, East Coast Gear Supply for the driver's side axle bushing to replace the needle bearing, and everything else Toyota.

New Lights

Finally replaced the delta lights that have been on my TJM bumper for almost 20 years. they just now konked out, so i replaced the halogens with Delta's 600 LED version. Work pretty well. Ive also slowly been chipping away at the rust that is destroying the underside of my '98 that has solely been driven on the east coast.

Oil change for the front diff. Last time I had to air chisel the drain plug off, so I had installed a new one with copper antiseize and under-torqued it (spec is 48 ft lb, I torqued it to 40). It STILL was a pain in the ass to get off!! I'm happy I didn't strip it though.

Once again, I had a new plug on hand just in case the old got stripped. This is a Lexus drain plug (PN 90341-24016) which has a bigger hex so hopefully it will be easier to remove -- I'm not the first to do this, but I'm not sure who to give credit to. The threads are a bit shorter but it seems ok and it has a magnet like the old one. Only $11 shipped from ssl-parts.com

^From the front diff, to the rear diff!

Replaced the original rear diff fill plug on mine . It was just about rounded off (not by me, previous lube tech jabronis). New crush washer too added.

Brother bought two of these pretty cool Toyota wheel stoppers, and I bought one off of him. They're much cheaper when you buy them through Amayama of Japan. I don't see myself using it, but I kinda like these quirky little accessories. 🙂 Will be sitting under the seat where the jack kit is.

Finally pulled apart all my auxillary lighting wires that were crimped during install. Now all are soldered and heat shrunk then wrapped in harness tape. Shorting out in water crossings don't scare me now!

Washed

I spent the weekend installing a backup camera, and while I was there painting the license plate surround. While I had the dash open I also replaced my dash bulbs again after I decided I didn't like the green I had used for my climate control lights a few weeks ago.

And just because it seemed like a good idea I decided to make things more difficult and instead of powering my backup camera with power from the reverse lights, I wanted to make it switchable. To do that without powering my reverse lights any time I turned on the backup camera, I used a SPDT (On-On) switch which tapped into the ACC fuse for constant power, or tapped into the reverse light circuit at the junction box by the drivers feet to only power on when in reverse.

The end result is a fully functional switched backup camera, 1 dead reverse light (I suspect I have a bad connection where I tapped the reverse light circuit), and a mess of malfunctioning turn signals/ hazard lights. Most of the turn signal power runs through the same connector on the junction box that I tapped for my reverse light power, so today I get to hunt down the mistake I made in there and try and fix it. I'm not looking forward to it as there is not much space to work in under there, and not a lot of extra wire length which probably means uncomfortable under dash soldering.

And to follow up on this, I have a PSA. When working on plugged connections, don't be an idiot. Double check that you plugged everything back in, and that the plug is fully seated and clicks so it doesn't back itself out after you put everything back together. Thank you for coming to my lecture. Have a great day.
