gbb's maintenance thread

The purpose of this thread is to document the maintenance, modifications, and adventures of my 2000 Limited w/ the factory rear locker. Its my daily driver, ski, fishing, hunting and camping rig. My objective is to keep this vehicle as close to stock as possible while making modifications that I believe Toyota would have made were they still building 3rd gens today.

Maintenance and mods list. All parts are replaced with OEM components unless noted otherwise.
  • 152,830 -- New radiator, Toyota red coolant, thermostat, upper and lower radiator hoses, lower ball joints, inner and outer tie rods, air filter, wiper blades

  • 180,278 -- hitch flip mod
  • 180,278 -- added a Scangauge using the Paranoid fab bracket in the ash tray

I purchased this in the fall of 2017 from the original owner with 152,000 miles. She had received the rig as a college graduation present, had never taken it off road, and kept immaculate service records. It had a bit of surface rust underneath and a few dings on the body, but seeing this stack of service records was all the convincing I needed.
