A headliner seems simple...

But I did not notice that the bows are all different lengths and will only fit in in the same spots they came out of.
FML.

The headliner and the rear window.

In my haste to get a glimpse of the 1-piece rear window I completely forgot that the rear window seal is what provides the final ďfront to backĒ tension on the headliner.

ie; You have to take out the rear window, pull the headliner to the tension you want it, glue and clamp that rear edge.

Then..........

Install the rear window.

So, it looks like the rear window needs to come back out.... Lol.

I donít mind the work, but damn if I hate to waste the $70 worth of window sealant I used putting it in.

The turning point is today.

The headliner is the fulcrum of the interior.
It comes out last and goes in first.

My sewing skills turned out to be not so bad after all.
Iím installing the headliner a little over-tight because itís fabric and I expect some stretching over time.

So I guess the posts from this point on will be re-assembly.

Iím stoked.

I need more binder clips though.

The edges in the door seals have to be glued tight and every inch counts with the adhesive.

Yay!

The headliner looks good.

Reassembly: seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

Does your rear view mirror shake and rattle?

I discovered when putting it back in that the mirror mount had play in it.

I devised a plan.

Cut some cardboard pieces (old loctite package) the same size of the metal tension cylinders.

Wrapped it around them.

Put all that inside a piece of heat shrink.

Heated it up to compact it.

Put it all back together.

SNUG!

Like all Toyota trucks I already know the interior lights suck.

So I went ahead and swapped in some LEDís.

Bolted everything back up, and viola!

You can see the hands free mic for the Alpine head unit just left of the mirror assembly.

Yes, I had to drill a hole there, but the placement is perfect.

In the mean time, the front fender.

At some point this thing hit something in the passenger side front corner.

noticed when the headlight and grille on that side didnít really line up.

Also, the antenna needed replacement.

Pulled the fender to take a look and decided to use some spare dynamat left over from the cab to add some silence to the fenders. Theyíre super tinny.

Not anymore.

Been too busy to get anything done... But...

I noticed I overlooked an issue with the body lift.
I did not address the impact to the transmission linkage and itís permanently stuck in Park until I can figure it out.

Is the linkage binding on the body?

I donít think so.
just need to find a spot where I can add 2Ē in the linkage to compensate for the lift.

4crawlerís site is super vague to resolve this.
Some statements say there is pently of room for shifter linkage adjustment, followed up by mentioning a linkage adjustment spacer you can buy from them.

itís all smoke and mirrors with 4crawler so far.

Itís like they piece together their website, but when you go to order and ask them if what you have will complete the job, they just shrug their shoulders like every lift is the first time itís ever been tried.

Cluster LED upgrade

Has anyone tried upgrading ALL of the dash bulbs to LED?

I know there are websites to order them from, but it looks like some of the mounting holes have no room for bulbs that are not the SAME size or smaller, etc...

No Oil Pressure or washer fluid lights?

Pulling bulbs and shining lights through the holes, I mapped out the bottom row of bulbs and what they illuminate.

When viewed from the back holes 1, 5, and 14 are blacked out.

But.... hole 7 is a washer fluid light, and 17 is Oil Pressure

I notice on BOTH gauge clusters I have that there is no bulb in either of these holes.

Does anyone know why that would be?

4Crawler's website was self designed (I think?) back in the late 1990s to early 2000s and the format has stayed the same ever since. It could use an upgrade.

Since you have an SR5 truck, your gauge cluster should come with a oil pressure gauge.

Toyota used the oil pressure warning light on base models and on higher trim models (such as your SR5) Toyota used an oil pressure gauge in place of the light. For manufacturing purposes, the space for the oil pressure warning light was left in place, unused, on models that came with the gauge.

I have never seen a washer fluid warning light on earlier models, so this must have been an option not equipped on your truck, but left in place for manufacturing purposes.

I don't know what the LED equivalent to the PRND2L indicator bulbs would be, but with enough searching with dimensions, original bulb type, and light output, you can probably find some. You might need to get creative with this exposed-lead type of bulb though.

I prefer the soft, warm glow of the OEM incandescent bulbs myself, but I am definitely in the minority on that.

Headliner progress

The adhesive Iím using on the edges is amazing stuff, but it has a 2 WEEK cure time. (yeah really)..

So itís basically 2 weeks per segment.

Anyway, itís starting to look like a truck again.
