Project WAF

If you don't know what WAF is (or HAF/SAF depending on gender and persuasion), you're not married. Wikipedia, I choose you!

Yes, Project WAF is all about doing what I can while keeping the wife happy. Happy Wife, Happy Life. Or something like that. It's our only vehicle, so it must remain reliable (it's a Toyota...). Translated: no lifts/significant engine mods/audio work. Doesn't mean I can't have fun though...

Edit: So there's no way to do strikethrough with this editor. I'm about to be not married anymore (woooo!) so "WAF" now stands for "Wallet Acceptance Factor".

Got my cap installed! It's a Leer 100XL. Finally - locking storage for the ass end.


Here's Kona testing it out:

Been a while, but I finally have something new to post. I'm at about 32k miles, and KBB still says my truck is worth more than I actually paid so either I got a slammin deal or KBB is smoking crack. Anywho, onto the mod. Got a Smittybilt (NFab, right?) light bar for early birthday!

Plasti-derp!

Moar plasti-derp!

Future plans
* note: list is in no way ordered by priority, desire, or suspected WAF.
  • Since I only have rear-wheel drive, I would like to get a winch at some point. I don't want to get a full cow-catcher. I like the look of the Undercover Hidden Winch Mount, but the price might drive it out of possible WAF range.
  • Lights for said light bar, of course. Duh.
  • Paint the steelies black. I'm not a big wheel whore, I just want something that looks good. Steelies - meh. Black steelies?
  • Hood struts
  • Underhood & bed lighting
  • Swap the audio-only jack next to the 12V outlets to the USB/audio panel that my dad's Tundra has

More to come as I think of them/read more of the fine forums.

Got the Smittybilt light bar! Pics above. The install went pretty smooth, but I'm concerned that the nuts that secures the bar to the brackets will back out. I may swing through the hardware store and get lock nuts, but those will be a bitch to turn without pulling off the bumper cover, and I really don't want to tackle that. Now to get lights for it...

I'm looking at getting a set of KC Daylighters (driving pattern) for the outside mounting points and a pair of Hella 500s with HID conversion for the inside points. Switches to come from OTRATTW. My wallet is not very accepting of this plan...
