tell me about that transfer. what is ADD?
i know people that give their kids meds for that.



Like Chris said, the transfer has what is called multi mode. It has 3 modes. 2wd, 4wd, and Awd.

The diff has what is called Automatic Disconnect Diff. I'll use this diff so I can shift on the fly between the 3 modes. Plus it has a ratio of 410

You'll love the switch to shift on the fly and ADD. I had it on my 99 Runner and it was great. We could be bombing around Mtn City or the hunting property in 2wd, get to a hill where we knew we needed 4wd and just drop to around 20mph or so and keep on gettin it. Made trail riding a lot more fun and convenient than having to lock/unlock hubs all the time.

Yea its going to be sweet. I plan to keep the manual hubs just in case I break something. I can unlock and go.

Smile I wish I would have gotten a video of it before I stepped down to 410s. The 456s made for better videos. I checked my mileage and added 20% to it (Speedo reads 50 when GPS says 60) and I got 15.7MPG on my last tank... with a little bit of rev limiter.

I start work Monday. Im ready to get some money coming in... MORE PARTS FOR MY TOYS!!! Laughing Laughing Laughing

Yea I met him before I started my swap, then I found out he had the ADD diff from the donor Sequoia and Multi mod T-case from his 4runner that he wanted to sell.

I am a little worried about my clutch. It doesnt like all this low end power... Also, if I am at a light and go to pull off and get ahead with the throttle and slip the clutch too much I can smell clutch pretty fast, and it hangs out for a while....

Spent the last two days trying to swap the front diff out. Yesterday was cut short when I saw this guy hiding just a few feet from me. The last time I saw him, he was under the intake hanging out around the starter......



Today he was no wear to be found so more progress was made. Things where going good till it came time to drop the diff out.... The diff can not travel up at all due to the bell housing... I ended up taking the rear diff mount off and leaving it in place wile the diff was out. The bolt pointing down on the left side was a pita... It sits really close to the cross member and was only accessible with the rack hanging loose...




I ended up having to jack the transmission up which gave me just enough room to get the bolt in.

Add vs manual front diff....



Manual hubs and CV shafts plus an ADD diff... It really does work.

Well, here we are, the end of summer, and I have what I think might be a simple solution to my AC line whoas...


I found these A/C line splice kits on Amazon for $20-25. They are basically compression fittings. I am mating the stock low pressure Tacoma lines to the Tundra low pressure lines. leaving the fitting on the fire wall is the stock Tacoma hose. It now makes a U-turn and runs to the fire wall where the fitting connects it to the Tundra hose. This hose then runs to the A/C compressor. The other hose I am splicing is the hose running from the condenser to the compressor. Again, the stock Tacoma line will be spliced to the Tundra line.

I have faith that these fitting will work just fine, with one exception. The Tacoma line leaving the fire wall is (I think) a 9/16 line (maybe 14mm). The Tundra line it needs to connect to is a 5/8 line. I can not find these fittings in mismatched sizes. After some trial and error and multiple returns, I think I have it figured out. I was able to get the 5/8 fitting to tighten down on the smaller Tacoma line. I have ordered the 1/2" fitting for the lower lines. I am also going to replace the receiver dryer since it has been exposed for the last year.

I am a little worried about how the sharp upward turn will effect the AC performance. However, these lines are low pressure, and thus the refrigerant should be in a gas form. We shall see.....

Anyway, here are some pictures of what the upper line looks like.

Cutting the ends off.



The fitting laid out.



Finished product.

Daylon, it will not hurt the line on the suction side to take radical turns, it is gas and not liquid so it is just adding length. You going back with 134? If you need any help just ring me up.

I can't do alm. but, I can do copper so if we know the tube size we can make an adapter.

So... Those AC fittings didn't work. They both leaked. I gave Alliance hose and tube works in Raleigh a call. They made me two new lines with my old Toyota fittings. These lines worked great.

I guess at some point a dirt robber found my AC drain.. Never have I seen so much water dump out of a dash. I found my problem quickly.







Sleepy gave me s good idea for a washer tank. My 4runner wasn't using it anyway.

V8 Tacoma sound clip 2: http://youtu.be/Zw_w84vsd8I




A little video of my truck lastnight. The speedo reads about 10mph slow at 50. Sorry for the shakey video. I was holding my phone on the steering wheel.

No wonder you are only getting around 10 MPG. If you pause the video and look at your fuel guage at the very beginning and at the very end, you can see that it goes down almost a needle width.


Sounds freakin awesome though. I know you are excited. I would be. Helluva job.



Speakin of job, have you heard anything yet?

The gauge probably went down because I braked pretty hard twice to make two turns.

I'm going the 29th to take the last test before its out of my hands.

Once mine hits about 1/4 tank any heavy braking or acceleration and the needle fluctuates a ton. I was interested to see the mileage on your trip last weekend. I'm currently seeing 220ish consistently on average highway trips out of a tank on 285's. Highest of 235mi. GPS and hand calc says my speedo is off by about 9% so that would make if around 240-255 actually traveled.
