The paper parts/shop manuals from the 1960s (which my dealer has) show the part numbers, which do carry forward to today's numbers if the part is still made. Things like the gas cap were carried...

The private campground just outside the dunes is rarely full, so if you get a remote site, it's fairly 'not-too-close-to-your-neighbor'. Not quite like a national forest, but not like a KOA, either.

I saw someone cut out the middle portion of a roached tailgate, and weld in a new panel, and then apply vinyl letters (since embossing them would be difficult).

I got my tailgate from Canada (super...

Nice find - reminds me of my tan '65, but yours was more complete. The tailgate and headache rack are universally missing and you have both!

I'd also ask the owner for several names of folks he's done work for (that you can call), and check with the BBB (for what that's worth). Sounds like an expensive job you're having done.

Seems a little high, like you're paying retail/new for the accessories. Looks very clean and tasteful, so you could go a long time before seeing one that shows that well. If you like the lift and...

You have brought up good points about rotor inconsistencies and confirmed that turning them may not help, and may hurt. I'll let you know if I find a good solution that doesn't break the bank.

Tundra brake rotor question - next steps?

I have a 2000 Tundra 4WD access cab with the stock (small) rotors and calipers. Both rotors are nearly new, and both show .001-.002 runout, as do the hub faces - so there is no rotor warping issue. ...

I have 5 flat-top pistons from an '83 2F, if that doesn't work out. Free if you need 'em (or if anyone else does).
