    First Gen Tundra -- in need of paint; San Diego recommendations ?

    Prices have jumped... $6-8K is about what I'd expect for a good respray. Maybe consider a wrap? Probably be about 1/2 the cost..

    Anyone an expert (or close) on the VF3AM T-case in Sequoia or 4Runner?

    if your shift is complete, it wouldn't leave you in neutral, no? Did you remove the actuator at one point?

    Anyone an expert (or close) on the VF3AM T-case in Sequoia or 4Runner?

    did you actually take the actuator apart? My understanding is that the only way to sync the actuator correctly is to split the case. when I replaced the dual case adapter on the tacoma ~11 years ago, I pulled the actuator w/o research. After talking to a local toyota tech, I just did a junkyard...

    Reputable Toyota 4x4 Shops Near Boise?

    uh... I think you're about right at 12mpg. 20 in an 80? Downhill with a tailwind, perhaps?

    Towing a 16ft Airstream with a 4runner? Other alternatives?

    maybe/maybe not? I've owned a bunch of 4.7's. Towed 6500# with them fairly regularly. I personally never had a problem with the manifolds. I also was fortunate to never have a problem with losing 4th gear in the trans, which was common in the 4-speeds. Shoot, I never even had rusty frame...

    Towing a 16ft Airstream with a 4runner? Other alternatives?

    you've come here with a lot of facts that aren't so factual. I know you're trying to "win," but please stop providing bad advice.

    What will an overweight Taco and a slip off a rock get you?

    Towing a 16ft Airstream with a 4runner? Other alternatives?

    sounds like you haven't read the owners manual for the 4Runner... dollars to doughnuts it probably states WD hitch over 3-3500 lbs. And you've deviated from your fact-based approach claimed earlier...

    Towing a 16ft Airstream with a 4runner? Other alternatives?

    pet peeve... when narrow vehicles tow wide campers... and the owners don't consider visibility. Not saying a 4runner won't work... I just personally would never do it.
