It was a honor to meet Mr. Akio Nishimura.
:rofl: I wish I would have gone. I would have asked. I have nothing to lose, they already told me that no more fender repairs would be done to my rig.:cheers:
No , I guess according to you, we are all ball-less. Sorry we did not meet your expectation.:wave:
Uhh... Here I am, balls and all.
"It is a model designator. For example FJ40, FJ45, etc. The The "F" indicates the engine family: F,2F,3FE. The "J" means nothing that we know of"I asked him what FJ stood for then gave him some Woodford!...........He gave it back, bit too strong for his tastes. Nice guy and a pleasure to meet, nice job getting him there...way to go guys!
Thanks for asking...that sucks Toyota obviously knows of the problem (you asking confirms it) and yet they choose to deny repairs to some folks.Uhh... Here I am, balls and all.
I asked him specifically about the fender bulges. He asked me what year truck I had , I replied 07
First words that came out of his mouth is "Oh Sorry" He then went on to say the new design of the frame/ motor combination has fixed the issue in 2010. It's suppose to be reinforced.
The fact that someone posted a 2010 with a solid crack down that area is probably drivers error, in my opinion. It looked like a jump crack, to me .
I didn't ask about the TO Bearing issue . I just didn't think about it since I drive an A/T
Like most companies, Engineers != Company OwnersThanks for asking...that sucks Toyota obviously knows of the problem (you asking confirms it) and yet they choose to deny repairs to some folks.
