Corona Virus To Do List Ideas please!

I am running out of ideas. I have added sound deadening noico mat to the rear cargo area, paint corrected, changed most all of the interior lights to LED, and took care of rust/under coated most of the under carriage. What else can I do while I am bored? Any and all ideas help! Thanks

I am considering running a dash cam cable underneath the panels but I am not sure my current dashcam is worth the effort.

Removing skid plates, cleaning, chasing the thread of the skid plate bolts is tedious enough to take time...

Replacing all the liquids if it is roughly about time....

What do you mean chasing the thread? What would the benefit be? And I just purchased my 4runner 3k miles ago from a dealer which had almost everything serviced, only thing I could think of that would need the replacing is probably the diff fluid? I have never replaced that though... How difficult is that?

The threads get filled with crap when offroading regularly. Don't ask me how but the stuff gets everywhere. So that's a way to kill some time when servicing the skid plates anyway. Aftermarket skids trap lots of crap. Maybe you don't need anything though.

I have not done the 4R fluids on my own, but the rear diff should be straightforward.

Check your spare and make sure it's 100% ready to go. Years ago, I needed to use the spare on my Gen3. When I removed the valve stem cap to top it off with air, the thing was so rotted that the valve assembly just came out. Maybe even take it to a tire place and just get a new valve stem as a preventive measure. Also check operation of the raise/lower hardware while you're in there.

You could buy my unused Doug Thorley midpipe and install it on your V8.

In times like these its great to have a to do list already started. I've got a huge one on my phone I constantly add to and use to write ideas down. I even have it sorted by long term and next weekend plans.

Since I dont have garage space at home (tiny townhouse), and dont want to endanger my parents by working an hour and a half away in their driveway, I'm dropping my 4r off at a shop that's still open here in VA to get my JBA UCAs, new LCAs, sway bar relocation, outer tie rod ends, springs, 6100s and 5160s installed.

Shop seemed slow enough that they could take it right away, and it's a pretty good excuse for a couple days off

@zu13 Rear diff is indeed very straightforward - as long as you don't turn the drain bolt the wrong direction. Not that I would have any experience with that...

But seriously, use a ratchet that you know is set to lefty-loosey on that bolt to at least to double check and maybe even physically mark the direction before you go to town in the wrong direction.

I needed to use quite a bit of force to break loose the bolt with a breaker bar. I ended up rolling over to my side/stomach for more leverage and lost my bearings, which led me to turn the bolt tighter and tighter until I stripped the threads from the axle housing.

I did that yesterday, it seems to have an excellently preserved non dry rotted original spare. I cleaned off a pound of dirt and sand that was built up inside it and on top of it. All lowering and raising bits worked properly!

tempting.... but that seems like it might be just a little bit above my comfort zone. I assume its not as easy as unbolt whats there and place new ones in...

Ok awesome, I might actually do this. It definitely would not hurt.

Some of it may not be applicable to your truck but:

Remove and repaint front steel bumper
Soak header bolts for removal
Install DT long tube headers
Measure for rear coilovers
Plan vacation/bugout supplies bag
And a ton of welding projects

It's been said many times...but if you service the diffs, remove the fill plug first. Don't want to drain it only to find out you can't refill it. Oh, and don't spill any of the gear oil
