Did Bruce paint it white or was that your idea Plating the brackets is pretty easy to do and adds a ton of strength to them. I've done 7 of them so far and I would recommend anyone with a fjc/05+tacoma/4th gen 4runner that offroads to get it done.

Come on know Mark just can't wait to paint everything on his 4Runner White!!!!! If he didn't, it would throw his whole "Casper" thing off!!!

Re: Summit Breakdown Story

So glad I found this!! I recently had my upper oil pan punctured because of the same thing! My diff bracket had those same bolts missing so it had enough play in it that while off-roading the front diff shifted upwards and punctured the oil pan. Not nearly as bad as yours was damaged but knowing that it can be removed through the bottom of the FJ is such a relief since I was totally dreading having to possibly deal with removing the whole engine. Also I heard someone mention that welding the pan was a possibility and after seeing that you could do this and yours was a lot worse I am hopeful that that is something I can do!!
