Looked like some fun stuff to prerun in...

Umm, Total time driven maybe 23 hours..

Total time period. 40 hours give or take.

So I got some wheelin done yesterday..:



Ill be on my way home tomorrow

While here I have had some weird issue with my clutch, Tranny not going into 1st or reverse. I flushed the hydraulic line and it went away until wheeling yesterday, then it was intermitent once or twice during the day, freaked me out none the less, its fine now and i think I can make it home no worries, I would stop by the dealer in the morning but I dont have the money or time to install a whole new master and slave..

Anyway, Wish me luck

Could be worn syncros or a loose shifter... if starts to act up again on the way home just remember when you park make sure you have a clear road ahead and just use the clutch start cancel button and it should roll right off with no problems...

Honestly I really think its just the seals in the master or slave worn out from the 10 year old black ass fluid that was in there..

They'll be on my list first thing when I get home..

UPDATE:

I got a pretty late start this morning but I was well rested.
Was out the door at 9:45, Got gas, rinsed off the undercarrige from mud and was on the road by 10:20

According to Google maps I drove roughly 861 miles in about 14 hours today
Im wiped out, But it was like I was telling my mom, Id rather drive most today and have a quick drive tomorrow then vise versa so it sawll good

The Taco did perfect as expected, no clutch issues, The thermostat wasnt seeming to stick like on the way out to texas, so thats kool..
I love this damn Tacoma

Glad you got back ok scoobie... take the matter up with days inn Corporate hq/customer service... if they give you static maybe mention you brought the issue up on a web forum with 20k+ members world wide who would like to know just how well customers are treated by them... all you are looking for is a refund for a service you were unable to use... I'm sure they will take care of you properly just be polite and respectful lol...

Ok So, Here's some more pics from my adventure..

Anyone ever been to PF Changs chinese..? Its a mid priced gormet chinese food place that I love !!
I went there for my birthday dinner, Ill be 19 next week and wanted to celebrate with my sis and a couple friends, so yes it was early.
Here's the desert, Fried bananas


Then, The next day on my way to Austin to chill with my mom, I found this place : Wimberly 4WD, I CANT BELIEVE I LIVE LESS THE 20 MILES FROM THIS PLACE FOR 4 YEARS AND DIDNT KNOW IT !!!! I would probably own a 40 or a 60..


LMAO ^^ Just noticed in that pic ^ Theres a toyota bilboard, Nice strategy



Austin Skyline..


Hookah
