Went to get state inspection done. Totally forgot I had disconnected the battery a week ago to test something out.

Don't forget to drive 50+ miles for a reset before getting your inspection done -_-

Negative, you can use the factory HU or aftermarket.

Okay, thanks. I have an old Bazooka tube behind the driver's seat and it's hooked up through the speaker wires. I've had that thing for going on 15 years and it's still pounding away.

Dropped the t-case. Got a used one to replace. Old one had a hole knocked into the side of it after the front driveshaft broke loose.

I got the 4Runner from my neighbor. Replacing the t-case, new driveshafts, new headlight assemblies, new windshield, and a bunch of little stuff like dash lights, hood struts, new stereo and speakers all around, etc.

Once I get the t-case back in it's going for a timing belt, I'm not going to try and tackle that one since I can't get it in the garage.

Had to go back to the dealer to fix a VIN cut key. I only received 1 keyset with the car that was so worn, it only worked in the Ignition, no luck in the door or hatch.

Decided to have the dealer cut a new VIN key so I would have a clean primary key. I should have checked it when i was there, but did not. When I got home I programmed it following a thread here with success. But then found out it only worked in one direction on the door and hatch (dot down).

Took it back to the dealer they cleaned it up, and was able to get it to work both direction in the door. Cleaned it up a second time and with a little force was able to get the trunk to work in both direction. Third time was a charm.

Lesson is, if you have a dealer cut a vin key, test it all before you leave

I was able to get a couple things done that desperately needed to be done.

Had to do a full front brake service. I had a seized caliper on the front left, so that meant everything new had to go in. Duralast calipers (for the lifetime warranty), Duralast “Elite” pads and Duralast rotors. I did not have time to order the slotted rotors I would like to have or the Powerstop pads to match the rear. No one carried these parts local and RockAuto shipping was WAY too much to have them in a day. Had to have it done over the weekend to get to work the following. Had to paint the calipers because one came finished and the other came unfinished.

Next was lower ball joints. While I was in there, new sway bar end links and bushings to the frame went in to get rid of the clunks I had going on. I went with MOOG on all these parts.

Couple months before that, I had to replace the radiator. Ordered a Denso from RockAuto and it went in without a hitch.

All these repairs give me peace of mind but I have been chasing neglect from the previous owner. One day I’ll be able to get into some real mods. :-)

Lastly I finally got around to Plastidip the emblems. Chrome be gone.

Did some exploring in Central Oregon.

Unfortunately, on the way home, opened up the glove box to find that something had gotten into the glove box and made a nest during the trip.

Got home and replaced the cabin filter (chewed seeds and parts of a tissue)
Opened up the engine cowling and made a steel mesh covering for cabin air intake using Kwik Mesh from Home Depot.

Finally replaced the chrome door handles with black handles.

I also detailed it today inside and out since it was pretty filthy. What started as a simple wash and vacuum snowballed into a full detail, buff and wax thanks to my OCD and a can of Red Bull. Should be good for a while now.

Got a link or part number for the handles?

Yes, I do. I used the Dorman textured black handles. 82499 for the driver front door, 82498 for the passenger front door, and 93994 for the rear doors. So far the fit and feel is great.

Old and Worried 1997 RWD 4R S/S Assembly

Since I had the Frontend Strut/Spring Assembly replaced and the read shocks as well! Was told that I ordered 4WD Struts/Springs instead of 2WD and all the parts had been installed since the second week of June 2021!
My question to you all, is a difference in the 4WD versus the RWD Strut/Spring Assembly, sure looks like the struts on part house give different numbers! Is there a specification page for this somewhere! When I spoke with the various part houses get conflicting stories on the parts being interchangeable, etc.. just concerned!
Thank you!

Finally got tired of having a floppy shifter so found a used assembly on eBay and ordered it. Hopefully this one isn't dead, too New shifter assemblies are a lot more than the $50 that I paid, though, and it has a warranty. So I'll take the risk. Holding it over in 3rd is a pain when towing.

Also should be receiving the world famous Napa awning today! Gonna be great for trackdays.
