Timing belt failure..or not

Just joined as I was looking at some threads the other day about not giving people hope due to this being an interference motor but after my timing belt decided to snap in half while going maybe 50 mph. Go sure thought I was going to need to swap the block but after throwing on a new timing belt she turned over fine. Still need to finish putting the radiator back in back she started up for a few seconds and was running fine. 2004 V8 limited. Roughly 240,000 believe it was the original belt and it was snapped fully in half.

Replaced Original driver seat cushion foam

Mine was pretty wore out on the driver door side bolster. Always feel like I’m sliding sideways off the seat. Has good support now and much more comfortable.

Old Cushion




I used zip ties to reattach the fabric cover to the cushion.




I also replaced the Clazzio leather seat bottom cover. The vinyl had cracked in a couple places while I was removing/reinstalling last year while putting in the seat heaters. It doesn’t match real well due to them being years old unfortunately though.

They do come in handy for sure. I use them constantly for cutting zip ties and other random things in my garage.

My 4X Innovations sliders are prepped, primed, painted, & going on tomorrow.







Used Rustoleum Black Stainless Steel Metallic to match my roof rack.

27f would work
31 would work with some mods i think, depending on brand
94r would fit, just shorter
24f would fit, still small
34r with height adapter.

not sure what brands napa offers, but im still rocking 31m from northstar for 6+ years now. i think you might be able to find the oddysee brand.

The 4X Innovations sliders are on. Very happy with the quality and the price is beyond reasonable. (Some competitors' shipping alone is damn near the cost of these sliders.) Painted them with the same Rustoleum Black Stainless Steel metallic paint I used on my roof rack.

Left real axle seal sprayed everything. I could have fixed it when I saw the first drip but I wanted to be sure it was 80 degrees and humid. Also I love that all my brake parts got fully coated.

I've done the job plenty of times, so it was only a few hours with minimal effort other than reattaching the ebrake springs. I think it'll leak again by next year. I feel like the seal cup needs to be 1/2" instead of only 1/4" so it rides farther out onto the axle. It likely barely has engagement the way it is designed.

If you make one change, you can prevent it from leaking. Flip the retainer around so the bevel faces outboard. See my thread from my FJC.

Cut the old retainer off with a dremmel and cold chissel. Heat the new retainer so it expands and drop it in place. Once it cools, it will seal on the axle. Dont forget the C clip

After waiting 6 weeks I finslly received my new RCI gas tank skid plate and installed it this morning. Its a beast. Without the floor jack, I never could have installed it by myself. Looks great.

Got it from offroad lifestyle.

Rotated my tires myself for the 1st time on any vehicle (always took it in since it’s free anyways). Neighbor recommended moving rears straight forward and moving fronts back and cross, seems to make sense.


Put in the voltage booster from Dirty Parts for my AGM battery I just got. Thanks for the tip @4RunnerAquasport
Dirty Parts


Added right at .50volts

Before


After


Installed the Seat Jackers by Desert Does it. Definitely gives support to the back of your legs. Much better angle and cradles your butt, especially with the new seat foam I just installed and new Clazzio leather seat cover. Feels much more comfortable overall. They are pricey and I cringed at the price but they are very heavy duty and well designed.



Before


After


Hadn’t seen any photos with the trim pieces reinstalled. They snapped back on and with the Weathertech mats It’s not very obvious.
