    I don't know what you're doing but you're doing it wrong! haha. I know you have a bumper, long arm kit and the rack with the tent, but does that all really add up to 2k? have you recalibrated the speedometer? I know before I did the truck was only getting like 15mpg.

    Yep. I've had it weighed. Also have full steel skids and sliders. Tires and wheels alone are almost 500 pounds. :eek:

    I haven't recalibrated the speedo yet. I just figure it out whenever I care.

    do yourself a favor and buy one of these haha. Just the truck knowing how fast its going will make a world of difference. This will give you back that lost mpg and you will probably see 15mpg again. Before I put it in it felt like the truck was being held back and after it felt almost stock again. I just cant seem to find 6th gear in mine. Oh and if you do buy it, don't recalculate for the gears you have in it. I don't know if I'm 100% correct but the Toyotas get their wheel speed from wheel speed sensors.

    Oh man. Another 400 bucks! Sure would be nice though. Maybe I'll watch for one to pop up used.

    I think it attaches its self to the vin so its only good the the vehicle you uae it in first. Its the best 300 ive spent on my truck.

    Replaced the crappy stock muffler with a MagnaFlow muffler and RT Magnum steps. Looks better and sounds proper! Plus easier for the wife to climb on in.IMG_3459.jpg

    Just a little bit when beginning and ending turns. I trimmed the air dam a little and it fixed the issue. Be sure you set the 5100s on setting #4 (1.55”). The front rides high, so you will need to install 1” blocking on the rear. That being said, you might as well upgrade the rear shocks to Bilsteins.image.jpg

    No worries! How does your rig handle with the air dam removed? Thinking about doing the same, but I’ve heard that it can get a little squirrelly with it removed.

    Quick stop while heading down from Broken Top trailhead. Went out for a hike with my wife and girls. Storm rolled in as we were hiking and it eventually dumped a couple feet or more at this elevation over the following few days. :eek: IMG_1498.jpg

    Got mine back in June 2017 with 5 miles on it (top picture). I'm right at 5k miles now and have only completed a few minor visual updates (bottom picture). New grille, mud flaps, window tint, removed badges, bed cover, LED interior lights. I'd like to get rid of the chrome plastic bummers and get new tires/wheels eventually.
