T/C off to it's new owner. Picked up a 23 spline adapter from AA. Building a set of duals. Mocked up my kayak rack for the trailer.

Bringing up an old thread, cause for some reason no one seemed to mention how to wire the clock, when I was searching before finally wiring one up. I've got an 82 2x4 wire harness in my 84 runner, But there actually should be a plug and play for the newer trucks. unless some jack ass used it for the radio.   
Maybe its just mine, but the damn thing is labled if you unplug the harness from the clock and look at the printed board. top left is L+ Red/Green. Top right GN White/Black. bottom left is D+ green/red. Bottom right is C+ black/white

So L+ is hot switched, which I put with D+ Dimmer, Im assuming that 12v would make it the brightest, (let me know if im wrong) C+ is constant hot for memory, and of course GN is grounded.

Shes safe waiting in the new Chevron location for my weekend to start.
Had some heavy weight snow 4 take down two trees in pasture #3 last week. Both trees squared up my fences nicely. No cows escaped thank goodness.
I agree with Jon so far. The cage is definitely transferring vibrations.
Still we will see what else could be involved. No final determination made yet.
Also hi to all my turtles

Our forum is very lucky to have members like slabzilla and bgen.... among others. :thumbs:

I miss bgen.  :sad2:

He is a standup dude and a class act that helped me numerous times during my 22RE rebuild. :biggthumpup:

I owe him something.  :beerchug:

He has clearly demonstrated his kindness to help others in need. :clap:

His incredible knowledge and experience is obvious. :yesnod:

Vibrations, from my experience, has always been one of THE most challenging to source. :dunno:

Good luck with your findings. :driving:

Gnarls. :inthedark:

B-gen will sort it out!  My bet is a bent axle shaft, you can't have a housing bent that badly without some axle spline damage or the bending of the axle to compensate for the deformed housing.  That said, spring pins or springs that are broken can cause looseness of the rear axle.  Check the front wheel bearings also as the vibes you seek now could be in the front end.  If the vibes are only coming from the rear, my first info is what I'd be focusing on.  Been working on cars since early 60's so my skills have a little merit. Thanks B-gen for carrying on great mechanical skills   :beerchug:

Id be shocked if the mad scientist that straightened the housing didnt check the axles considering the level of detail that he went into. B-Gen and I are speculating that the roll cage could be transferring something that feels worse than it is. Bottom line is that I trust him to evaluate and my main goal is being confident from a safety perspective.

You still hunting down that vibration issue?

Oh no!c Fgured it out! Climate change is worse tha they thought. Heat is infrared radiation and all those gasses are just infrared reflectors. The real issue is invisible red light.

We need to stop using heat.

The initial plan for the 4Runner is all new fluids along with a new set of u-boots. Changing the u-bolts will provide opportunity to inspect the leaf spring pins and slots in the mounts.
