ok on to my sand lake adventure yesterday... boy was this not my day, first my my roof rack came off, got that fixed, but still irritating.






then on my way home i was hearing this "ticking" sound kinda like the inner finder splash guard was lose... i listened to this for about 5 min and thought oh F no, this is gonna bother me all the way home(a 2 hour drive). so i pulled over and went to go find the source of the mystery sound, sounded like it was coming from the front left. anyhow i get out and have a look, cant see anything, then i pop the hood and have a look their, still nothing, so i thought huh i wonder if it was my air line dangling down in the back, so i go back their and look, and the first thing i notice is "man, it smells like gear oil back here. so i look for leaky axle seals, nope thats all good, then i look at my drain plug on the diff cause i remember seeing some wetness there the other day, and wow everything was soaked. but it was the whole rear end, not just the lower part by the drail plug. so i looked a bit close and notice a nice hole ripped in my housing, something came lose(im suspecting they spider gears or a tooth off the rig) and came punching out through the housing right next to the fill plug. i caught it early enough that their was still fluid in the bottom third of the diff, and there was no noise coming from the rear end -no howl/grown, and everything back their was and is still working smooth.

i limped it back into town and met back up with the group i had been with all day, they off loaded on of their rigs, and i drove mine up onto their trailer and then we all had dinner and then drove home.

Ouch. What happened with the rack? Did it slide out the back end?

And lucky you were with a group with a trailer.

I could be wrong though... it was my first time doing it.

There's a 4Runner down the street from me in nice condition that looks exactly like yours pre-mods.

I'd pick it up if the wife didn't make me get my 5th gen already
