    Diary of a Snow Shoveler

    Oh, yeah? Whereabouts in IL and TX? I came from O'Fallon, IL, east of St. Louis, and Copperas Cove, TX.

    2020 Toyota Tacoma

    I don't see a question here as much as I do a complaint, but just in case there was a question, Toyota introduced electrically activated front lockers in the 1993 FZJ80 high pinion front differential to the NA Market; front and rear axle lockers (code K294) were an option. Toyota KDSS does not...

    Diary of a Snow Shoveler

    Not at all... it was too subtle. But then again, why would I? It's not like we're cousins... but I do get the "California thing", having lived there for 13 years with their "Micro-climates", wildfires, mudslides, and earthquakes. But only after living in Illinois, Alaska, and Texas where there...

    Diary of a Snow Shoveler

    Yeah, I've only had to shovel once this year. The remaining instances of snow were taken care of by the following day increased temperatures and/or rain. So far so good... but our typical heavy snowfalls were in March the last few years so I'm kind of waiting for the other "shoe to drop".

    2020 Toyota Tacoma

    So what are you saying is the 2016 Toyota 4Runner and the Lexus GX460 are essentially the same vehicles; both offer third row seating; the 4Runner does not provide for HVAC ducting in the third row; and, the GX460 does provide HVAC ducting to the third row. Is that correct? Gosh, I wonder why...

    2020 Toyota Tacoma

    ^^^ This. I have a couple of acquaintances who are no kiddin' Toyota and Lexus engineers. All make the same observation regarding the Corporations policy towards product introduction. "Evolution, not revolution", sums it up nicely. Toyota Motors is one of the leading automotive manufacturers...

    The I4WDTA

    I'd wait till @Dave returns to Southern California. He's going to need your Tacoma to recover his Jeep when it gets stuck or breaks down on the trail anyway. :rofl

    The I4WDTA

    That is true Brett. "Testing for Certification" (TFC) assumes that the Candidate Trainer has the requisite skills to perform as a trainer. However, working with a Certified Trainer as an "apprentice", or participating in organized training classes from an I4WDTA Certified Trainer ensures you're...

    The I4WDTA

    That's fairly accurate and it is a busy market segment providing driving and recovery training to corporate, military, and other government agency customers, much busier than you might imagine. Some of our members work routinely with the automotive manufacturer, automotive product and...

    Interesting. Gives me cause to wonder why they were stored there in the first place.
