That's an interesting idea. I've never heard of fibergrate. Looks like it'd be a bit lighter than a similar steel rack.

These are my fibergrate traction ladders.



They're fifteen pounds each.  I don't think you're going to save any weight unless you go with a much lighter fibergrate.

Upon seeing those, I agree with you. How long have you had those? It'll be interesting to see if prolonged exposure (roof rack) to UV lights will mess with the resin at all.

Just about a month. I had them on the SRS trip with Josh but didn't use them.

Has anyone pulled the throttle body from their 5vz?

Fairly straightforward process? I got the symptoms of a clogged up IAC over the weekend.

4 bolts and a few vacuum hoses if I remember right. Popped right off

Mine is drive by wire though.... wouldn't think that would make a huge difference

Pulled in the intake tube and hit the throttle body with some carb cleaner last night. Seems to have solved the dying at idle problem.

Anyone ever have the DC joint in the rear driveshaft fail? While driving home from work today I discovered a pretty good vibration at highway speeds. It feels like it's coming from the rear of the vehicle and only when there is a load on the engine. When I let off the gas the vibration stops. scratch

That could be wheel bearings too, though. Let's get those swapped and then see what's what.

Dropped the rear driveshaft off at Tom Wood's today. The initial thought is the rear u-joint is bad, but they're going to do a full inspection and let me know what's what.

Report: The driveshaft is shot. the DC joint and the diff end u-joint are bad. Apparently the Toyota OE stuff to rebuild these shafts are difficult to find. I was quoted less to have an entirely new shaft built than to try and rebuild the existing.

Junkyard shaft.

That'll save you money so you can buy Toad's supercharger.

The tough thing about a junkyard shaft would be finding one that has the right transfer case. The j-shift, multi-mode, AWD are all different lengths (up to 4" if memory serves) and then who knows what kind of shape it'd be in.


Stupid tempting supercharger is stupid...


Edit: Bountiful yard has a 2000 driveshaft for $125. Not sure I want to risk it not being the right length, or being in bad shape.

Edit x2: Found one on KSL, going to measure it this afternoon. Hopefully it's the right length.

The DS I found on KSL was a match! Got it put in tonight. Ordered new nuts to fit the t-case flange which should be here next week.
