Stoppin on a dime!

Got the whole new brake system installed last night. Centric Rotors, Hawk LTS Pads, Powerstop Calipers, and stainless lines all around. I replaced everything front and back. Definitely notice a massive difference. Brake fluid was black...pretty sure the previous owner never serviced the brakes. Now it's got fresh Pentosin Super DOT4 running through it.

Didn't get the chance to bed them last night, due to all the foot traffic from Coachella. Lots of vacation rentals here in my neighborhood...can't say I mind the festival girls though!! So early this morning I zipped around the neighborhood doing a sequence of moderate then hard stops as per Hawks instructions. Fresh brakes smell delicious when heated!

Both rear doors were hitting my sliders every time they are opened (that are welded on). Trimmed a little fat off the steel, sanding down and painting new groove to clear the doors. Also, had a buddy cut some steel to offset a Wilco jerry can attachment.

Oil change and radiator fluid change. Opened the hood and saw this "squirrel damage":



Patched the hood liner back together with a glue gun.

Readout is under the cover. Cover has a cutout for the readout. Two ports.

It was so rusted there was no other way it was coming off (without the correct puller). They sell the pullers on Amazon, so if you have the time to order one, it will make life a lot easier for that job!
The bolt on mine is rusted so that I cant even get it out, let alone pull the arm off. basically there is no head to the bolt so Im going to have to try to get it with an easy out or similar, but honestly dont think its going to come out. Im preparing to have to replace the motor

so trying to chase a persistent p0174 error, LTFT on bank 2 is 37% high, while bank 1 is 14%, have cleaned, maf sensor and throttle body, changed airfilter, no luck, next step is to change fuel pump+filter, but i want to test the furl pressure first. ordered the kit from amazon, but ran into hitch, am unable to locate the fuel rail/where to hook up the fuel pressure kit. my truck is 05 v6, would appreciate any head ups for this procedure or links for videos to match.
thnks

Power steering

Being bored and having the itch to work on the 4Runner...I decided to do a power steering flush. The truck only has 83k miles on it, but it -is- an 04 so I figured it wouldn't hurt. Old fluid was pretty foul looking. Went through a little over a quart til it was coming out fresh as a daisy.

My what a difference it made. So much smoother when turning the wheel, and it feels a bit more responsive overall. Definitely worth doing!

Only 83k miles!?!? That has to be the lowest mileage on the boards.

Yep! It's actually at 82.9k =)

Purchased from a family friend who hardly did any long distance driving for a whopping $5k. Only downside is she's only 2wd...for now.

I've Had quite a few conversations with Wyatt over at Rock Solid Toys and sometime next year she'll be getting the conversion. It ain't cheap, but a 4wd 4th gen with mileage this low doesn't really exist. I don't plan on ever getting rid of this truck, so to me it'll be worth it.

I'll get an emissions notice shortly, as the current emission. Test expires next month.
