    Jorgen Automotive-rack rebuilders-has closed

    That is sad news. I have a rebuilt R&P from them in my 93 Camry. Excellent customer service and products. I referred several friends to them due to the exceptional service/products they offered.

    Anyone ever order tires online at Wallyworld?

    I had a similar experience when I ordered my last set of Cooper tires from Wal-mart. Took another two days for the remaining tires to come in. The explanation I was offered was the tires came from two different locations on separate trucks.

    DIY options and input requested Smovey Rings

    They are called Smovey Vibroswing. I have been asked by a friend to explore options for making something similar to these to use in a professional setting with older adults and/or children and adolescents. Two sets would be ideal. These can be found on ebay for $165 or higher. In essence...

    2000 Tacoma Alternator (6 Cyl)

    My suggestion would be a local rebuild shop. The build quality of the one you have now will be better than anything you will be able to purchase. I am still running the OE alternator in my 93 Camry which is currently at 246K. Been to the shop twice and both times the repairs where cheaper...

    05 Camry Key Programming

    I asked when I was at the dealer and they confirmed by VIN the car requires a chipped key. They ended up having to cut the key by VIN as the key I have was too warn to make a good duplicate. My SIL has an 02 LE Camry and it takes a standard key.

    05 Camry Key Programming

    Thanks for the responses. Linctex- Are you a gambling man???? Not really. Hence the reason I posted the question hoping the shared knowledge of the BITOG community would be able to provide some guidance. I can't be the first person who is trying to program a 2005 Camry key with CK-100...

    05 Camry Key Programming

    I recently purchased an 05 Carmy (USA built with a build date of 2/05) and it only came with one aftermarket chipped key and one Toyota remote. A friend loaned me a CK-100 V46.02 Auto Key Programmer which indicates on its compatibility list it works with this generation of Carmy. I did some...

    I followed Trav's advice last year when replacing the rack in my 93 Toyota Camry that had 220K on it and purchased a rack for Jorgen. Great customer service, quality parts, and shipping the core back was a breeze.
