    Had to drive to another city today for a funeral service in the middle of a bomb cyclone hitting the northeast.

    Installed a couple of the Dodge Sprinter D-rings P/N 5170492AA on the bed cubby bolts:

    Put my new emblem on the tailgate with 3M 03614C molding tape:

    My replacement LCAs didn't come with the anti-whistle hole plugs, so I had to order them separately, P/N 90950-01990. These have the number "8" molded on the head, same as two plugs in the frame rust spray kit. Each LCA takes 3 plugs, for 6 total. Decided to go OEM despite their cost, because the plugs are in a harsh environment, getting dragged over rocks.

    RCV axle shafts P/N CVJIFS-TOY2 came in 5 months after ordering. RCV axles don't include the outer dust seals and axle nuts that normally come with aftermarket CV axles. Outer dust seals are Toyota P/N 90304-A0001. Re-use your axle nuts or get Toyota P/N 90178-28002.

    While the LH axle is out, replaced the front diff needle bearing with ECGS bushing P/N T8CS-BUSHING and a new seal Toyota P/N 90311-47027:

    Everything installed. The high-angle inboard CV boots avoid the need to do the boot slide mod.

    Drained the front diff and refilled with Castrol synthetic 75W-90. Installed Lexus drain plug with 14mm external hex P/N 90341-24016:

    I did the "dreaded" sparkplug change. My '16 had the original factory plugs that I let go 103,000 miles. I finally changed them this weekend. The passenger side was much easier than the driver side.

    I cleaned the baked on bugs off my windshield. Had to first use a non scratch scotchbrite pad, then Windex and paper towels.

    Stuff I've done in the past that were pretty handy. I made a phone mount using a Ram Mount, made a surf board rack so I wouldn't have to use a tailgate pad...had a Dakota tailgate rust out bad from that, and I made a handy net for grocery runs to keep stuff from sliding to the cab.

    For the net I used pieces of aluminum bolted to the little door thing screws with I bolts in them to hold my home made net. Works most great. Had the nest in my last truck, glad I kept it when I sold it.

    Surfboard pad has a strap with an adjustable buckle to hold the board in place.

    I use a utility razor blade to scrape bugs off the glass.

    Drove mine a couple blocks today.

    After checking my email this morning, I immediately drove my Tacoma a couple blocks to a friends house I had a HK rifle stock shipped to.

    Submitted another eForm 1 to make my H&K SP5 into a short barrel rifle. Didn't want the stock to be at my house due to ATF laws on intent to make a SBR without a stamp.

    This was the fasted stamp I received out of the 7 I have. I submitted it April 2nd and got approved on the 12th. Ten days is fast for the ATF.

    Life is GOOD!
