I installed 6 of the 12" white LED lights in the bed cap. 4 on top of the windows, and two on the inside of the back hatch. I probably could have gotten away with 2 on the inside, they're brighter than I thought they'd be.

I got two new tires installed on the back General Graber AT2's to match the front. They must have aired them up to 50+ lbs, my ride to work was stiff on bumps!

Looks better than the bald ass tires I had on there anyway.

New Toyota bedmat; the composite bed is tough, but damned slippery. Can't even put the dog up there to brush him without him sliding all over the place. The bedmat fixes that.

I'll post pics of the mounting bolts
I got 10min. Uses existing bolt holes if it just took 10min - right ? Do I need a torque wrench - hope not - directions I down loaded say I do. Been using it ? How do U like it ? Worth the investment $$ ? Thanks.

tons of videos about the bedstep for example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDeWF3IiyZs

looks nice, just not sure if I can justify $200 nice

btw, you should buy a torque wrench, but a cheapish one, it might not be exactly 66 ft-lbs but it'll be close, store it all the way backed off (0 ft-lbs.) . They are always a good thing to have around for things like tire changes, etc.

clutch replaced, URD sleeve/bearing, 292,500 kms! mech said its still had some meat left. maybe just needed an adjustment, it was getting hard to pull a boat up a launch ramp but whatever I got my use out of it. Clutch pedal feels so much better now too and no more squeak!
Drive train fluid changed out.

^Damn, that's about 40,000 km per year you put on the truck.




Adjusted the Extang Solid Fold tonneau. It somehow shifted by about 1/8" over six months.

Also took two of the "summer" wheels+tires to be rebalanced, so I could rotate my tires. When I got them last year, the mechanic laid the weights too thick on the inside of the rim, which gets too close to the caliper in the front but works fine in the rear. The stick-on weights are changed to the clip-on type.

Good find. Thanks 4 posting link ! Can you justify $199 ? You can always say less then $200 if she asks.

How do you like it so far? Kinda wish it wasn't so visible.
