This question came one day late, since Saturday I had to replace my radiator do to small leak.
Used Denso # 221-3125 from buyautoparts for $223. Took me about 1-1/2 hours without removing skid plate or fan assembly. Used oem SLL pink coolant from local Lexus dealer ( $17 per gallon).

Skid plate looks great..

replaced the cabin filter, engine intake air filter and greased the drive shafts front, back and spline with Vavoline moly syntec.

Up next is spark plug replacement and fuel filter replacement.

Anyone with good experience with leather care products?

This weekend I finished installing the last of my interior LEDs, swapped out the wiper blades for PIAA silicon blades, hooked my HIDs back up and gave it a deep clean before winter.

Really regretted selling my mint condition, lifted V8 4Runner Limited so bought its richer cousin to serve daily duty reqs.

I'm going to be blacking it out and doing the same. Thanks, all!

I personally like the Lexus stuff available at the parts counter. Its expensive compared to the parts store, but I haven't found anything that seems to work as well.

ALAN553 - Youa re correct, it is built into the fuel tank.
I thought there would have been an inline high pressure unit. I definately won`t be tackling that.
I just moved from a diesel toyota, so i`m going on routine maintenance i`d do with any used "new" vehicle.
