    Haha. For sure.
    You’re hard core if you’re polishing your shaft with brake cleaner. Most use lotion.....

    Where is the fitting to grease the fan?

    There's not fitting for the fan and only 4wds (2nd gens) have driveshaft fittings.

    Is there a upgrade I'm not aware of. I don't think I have a propeller attached to my Taco.

    But these guys do. Or should.

    That’s awsome. Those are heavy enough they don’t need props just keep it gassed.

    In Iraq in 2003 there were a plethora of old Soviet era Russian 5 ton size trucks around that we would “borrow” to get around. Those things rode like gut wagons but were impossible to kill.

    I put all of my worn out work socks in a bag (after washing them) and save them for when I grease anything. Slip on a Harbor Freight black glove, slide the sock over your gloved hand and you have an easy way to wipe up any mess that you make. It's not like the old socks are good for anything else.

    I put the eyes and hair on AFTER I use the sock to wipe up the grease.

    Not a bad idea.
    But your wife probably wonders why you have so many happy socks in the garage.

    Ten times more absorbent than the leading paper towel.

    I wonder if the original poster was speaking of the slip joint in the driveshaft? All Tacomas have that, or no??
