Replaced ball joints. Upon removal of the rotors and brake calipers to get to the ball joints, I discovered I needed to replace them as well. So, new pads, calipers and rotors along with upper and lower ball joints. Now I need an alignment.

Got it home after replacing the other exhaust manifold and having the transmission serviced.


Removed the original owner's cell phone antenna. Bought a new radio- to be installed, along with cruise control this weekend.

Got the K&N air intake and filter in the mail today. Guess I have something to do tomorrow morning. It was time to change the original air filter (just over 13k miles on the odometer), so I figured why not. The K&N was by far cheaper and easiest than most of the other intakes to replace (IMO). If nothing else, I've got a cleanable and reusable filter.

All the tundra owners out there

I may move away from the diesel and towards the tundra 2015-2016

I have a 29.5BHDS Jayco Eagle HT

Will the Tundra handle that much weight? Comes in at about 10k

Wish I still had my Tundra, but IMHO it is no match for a 5er, HT or not. The engine and power train should handle it with no problem, but you'll be way over on your weights - payload capacity is just too low, especially if you have 4x4 and one of the higher trim levels.

Made an appointment to get a glow plug replaced next week. Why do they fail in Florida in August when they aren't even needed. If I lived here year round I wouldn't bother.

Timbrens

Installed Timbrens on rear end of my truck. I have a small TT, but it is also a small truck. I don't know if they will help, but they cannot hurt. I saw stories of rusted bolts snapping off in the frame, but a squirt of penetrating oil and the bolts came right out. If I had known it would be that easy, I would have installed them before our Labor Day trip! Well, now I'm ready for the next trip.

Great points. Same I am getting on the tundra forum.

Killed about a bazillion Snout-Nosed butterflies over the weekend (drove through their annual migration last weekend), so DW did me a huge favor and took it to be washed. The car wash did a decent job, but I'll still have to go in there and do some work.

I don't want to know what my loss of cooling efficiency is with all those butterflies in my radiator, condenser, and trans cooler, but I imagine they're not doing me any favors. I rinsed it out once at the park, and will have to do it again at home.
