Thank you.

Took longer than I wanted, but not as long as others though. Know what you want, and get really serious about it.

A post I made a few weeks back on this topic:

Would you buy?

Looking to put only about 3k miles a year on this T4R, I imagine I might go into the ground before "Jack". Our little girls call "him" Jack as we carved our jack-O-lantern that evening...

So much for my run of female names!

Yes, I read your reply to that thread the other day as I was doing some research. I have several CL searches set up within a 4hr drive. Also stalking Facebook marketplace.

Nice. I even had alerts for San Diego and parts of Arizona, 1 to 1.5 hour flights away...

Respond fast to the alerts and you'll be driving one. Best to you!

On a conference call and had to hit mute!

It was a 4x4 though, of course

A play on words my friend, all in fun of course, couldn't resist!

Worth replacing the PCV valve? 10 bucks delivered...

Yes, but be prepared for the grommet to crumble into the plenum; they get hard and brittle after so many years. Order a new grommet too.

I was able to fish out all the pieces of grommet on mine. Another common issue on a 18 year old car.

Thanks Mike.

I had read that in a thread or two (dry/brittle grommet). The previous owner did the valve cover gaskets, but I don't know if he did the PCV valve. I would have...

Maybe I can tell by inspecting the grommet, noting its condition.

Ok, this is very much 4Runner-related...

While we have a 3-car garage, and the T4R is the 3rd vehicle, it won't fit as it's too tall, even in stock form. I knew that when I purchased it as even our family car (Equinox) will only fit with the removal of the roof-mount antenna.

I have some decent space on the side of the house though. I cleared out some large limbs this past summer with this in-mind... Some excavating is desirable in order to get it in/out more easily, especially for my wife. Made some nice progress today. There are tons of rocks and even boulders here.









Probably one more day of earth-moving and leveling. Once done, I'll drop some sand and then pavers so it won't be sitting in the mud...

Before next summer I'll build a structure in this space so it is out of the elements... There's room for a trailer too.

True that both differentials and and the transfer case use the same lubricant? Looks to be 75w-90 gear oil...

Advisable to replace all (8) gasket washers too? I imagine so. Think I have part #s already... Thanks!

You are correct, I used Redline 75W-90 and bought this kit for the crushwashers:

Perfect, thank you. I ordered that kit, plus 7 quarts of 75W-90.

I heard that doing the tranny is not as easy, not sure why though. Thanks again!
