Bought an indeflate...
Its magic.
I've used just about every method for deflating & inflating tires and this beats them all in terms of ease and accuracy.

Nice. I used to have a length of hose with a connector at each end and with the spare aired up to max you could reinflate easily...and of course equalise left and right etc. never failed to amaze me how many people asked me how it knew which way to send the air..

This is the next step up. No prices tho

Re: What did you buy today (FJ related items)?

I just ordered a front wheel bearing from this website i found for Toyota O.E. parts, I saved sixty bucks and it's same exact part as dealer would sell me. https://www.toyotapartsprime.com/oem...+Cyl+4.0+L+GAS) I like saving money this is my fourth time using them for my parts all good.

Axles: differential vent, rear axle seals
Brakes: right rear brake caliper (seized), rear brake pads, 6" right front steel brake line (blew while bleeding rear caliper), right front brake hose.
Misc: door ajar switch/dome light switch

Re: What did you buy today (FJ related items)?

A 5 quart jug of oil. The maintenance required light has been on for 100 miles. But this is full synthetic and a bit over 5k miles is probably okay. I have a filter and plug gasket on hand.

Yep, I'm a big spender. You aught to see me on date night.

Have a look on their site - theres a reseller in the UK. I bought mine locally. A bit more expensive than South Africa.

1750 ZAR = 123 USD
519 AED = 141 USD

So I paid an $18 premium for it to buy locally - that's cheaper than shipping, especially because they add local shipping in SA anyway.
