    @BAMATOY I've got a 10x10 that i use for the beach you can borrow if you still want. The bags of sand are the best idea for keeping it in place on the beach. Just tie them to the top corner post to get the weight in the right place or a good wind will just break the leg off, "ask me how I know". I've also got a large beach umbrella that we took with us last year. I'm in huntsville every day if you want to meet up and grab them.

    Yes you would need the entire axle but you can modify yours, you can find just about any gear ratio you need. It takes a little work but very doable. If you have to get someone to do it for you it's probably not worth it.

    Get straight leg not stand leg. I got a lot of first hand experience with pop ups over the last year hosting a tailgate every weekend on the quad. I got an ozark trail 10x10 for $50-60 and it’s about the best you can get for the cost

    As far as airline leaks that’s the only thing if installed correctly. Air lines eventually need to be replaced. So does wiring in some cases.

    I know the stock lockers aren’t as strong as the ARB lockers, but that doesn’t mean I’d swap one for ARB. I’d be curious to see how strong the Harrop Elocker is compared to ARB though.

    Also, idk if you can find deals on the Elockers. That one front Elocker at $1400 costs the same I’ve got in my whole setup locker F/R, Dual Compressor, and miscellaneous mounting parts.

    A lot of people have problems with the air lockers. Compressor, lines, electrical, seals... I know the front air locker is stronger not sure about the rear. If anything goes wrong on the trail with the air locker you can't use it. E-locker you can pull the motor and engage and disengage it with a screw driver

    Any of y’all have the factory roof rack or Thule setup laying around you’re not using anymore? Needing a roof rack for work, but don’t want the prinsu rack and figured I’d ask before buying new.

    A guy has one for sale in AL Tacoma FB page. It’s a gen 2 but think it fits a gen 3 too (if I’m wrong someone will correct me). He is only asking $100 bucks.
