Looks nice and strong Randy! Love it.Mostly finished. I still have to seal the top and do a “backsplash” for lack of a better term. I set it up to fit a steel strip along the front too. In good time…
I was just gonna say on your other post that those jacks are bringing good money.Jack fail

Similar shape and design to the CJ ones, but clearly not correct.
Definitely summer. I don't think I have ever had to move that deflector piece down here 😆Is it set for winter or summer air induction? I asked sombody that once and they looked at me like I was an idiot. I showed them and they felt like the idiot.
Oh! You mean the spark plugs that snap off when you are removing them due to carbon buildup? Been there...done that....and have the special removal tool... PIA for sure!The Tundra is nowhere near as bad as those Ford Triton V8 bastards!!! But, still took about 3 hours to change 8 plugs, clean the mass air flow sensor, and throttle body. Runs great again, no codes. Original plugs looked wore out.
Yep, got the two tools for the Ford, sucks. The one I worked on had the original plugs. After having 3 break/come apart, learned a trick:Oh!

I only changed the plugs once on our Expedition wit the 5.4 engine. Luckily I learned about the issue before trying to pull the plugs. I got 7 out cleanly but the 8th broke. And it was, of course, in the worst position to work on. I used the impact wrench method I saw somewhere. Warmed it up and hit it with the impact. The removal tool got the last one out. Then, about 4 months later, my then 17 year old son totaled the Expedition by rear ending a stopped Prius. So I won't need to deal with those plugs ever again.Yep, got the two tools for the Ford, sucks. The one I worked on had the original plugs. After having 3 break/come apart, learned a trick:
Get one plug/coil pack ready to pull. Start engine and get it hot. Immediately shut off and pull plug. The last 5 came out no issues. I had to change this Ford's plugs the other day, did them one at a time with a hot engine, all 8 came out with no drama!!
