I soaked it for a couple days with penetrating fluid and then used a breaker bar with a 6 point socket (24mm I think?)

Weld another nut on there just so you can get the rounded one off. Could be a crappy weld, unless the check plug is really siezed in there.
Obviously it would only have to hold for one check, because its not worth putting the old one back in. IMO anyways...

And instead of putting that style plug back in, replace it with the low-profile Toyota plug that uses a 10mm Allen wrench instead of a socket. I don't have the p/n handy, but it looks just like 90341-18021 except it doesn't have the magnet (you don't want a magnet on the fill plug, just the drain plug). Buying a full set of hex fill and drain plugs for your tranny, xfer, and axle housings is cheaper than buying the big socket for the stock plugs.

And having posted that, somebody please post the p/n for the non-magnetic plug! Thanks.

Id go to an auto parts store, almost ALWAYS cheaper than the dealer.
Dunno what they cost, never had to buy one. My bolt is fine, probably cause the guy I bought it from never checked or changed the fluid

Yeah, they're cheap from Toyota; I paid Cdn$2 and change each for the 90341-18021 magnetic ones; All-Pro sells them for US$4.00. I haven't gotten around to buying the non-magnetic ones yet for the fillers.

Here's what they look like:


As you can see, they are low-profile so when they are installed on the bottom of the diff they are less likely to get hit by rocks (which loosens them).

And when rocks grind the protective ring on the diff so that it would be too close to get a socket onto the stock drain plug, you can still get these ones off because you aren't trying to place something around it. I remember working at the ring around my stock front drain plug with a die grinder so that I could fit a socket.

Cheap mod, highly recommended.

Greg, what's wrong w/ using the magnetic ones on the filler holes? I used 'em on my truck thinking it'd be better since you'll have two magnets instead of one to catch metal particles.
