    Well guys here's my saga. After ordering her in January. She was built February 25th. Shipped from port March 16th a five hour drive to the dealer. I took off from work to take delivery Thursday of that week which was 2 days after the truck left port. (remember 5 hr drive) Thursday no truck. So I took off from work Friday. No truck. She arrived Saturday morning after my wife had to return to work (works weekend) so, no truck.
    I told the dealer to just get her over to the body shop to get the graphics installed Monday morning and we'd be over Monday afternoon to pick her up. Got there about 3:00 pm signed all the paperwork around 4:30. They called the body shop to see if she was ready. Said they contract out all window tint and decal work to an outside contractor and he had left around 4:15 as his shop was 1.5 hours away. Said he would return the next day to finish up the hood graphics. So again, no truck. They delivered the truck to my house the next day around 4:30 pm in the pouring rain just after she came out of the detailing shop. :confused:

    looks great! What dealer did you go with? The one I bought from had a 5k markup that I had them down to msrp within 2 emails.

    im starting to de-chrome the interior too. I’ve already done the vent rings and start knobs. Waiting on the door handles now. Pics are a few pages back.

    Dealer I used was in Twin Falls, ID. Willis Toyota. 0 markup off the start, got her for just under MSRP, plus since I financed with Yota they gave me $1000 and 90 days no payments. Was in and out in under 60mins. Hardest part was the 2 1/2 hr drive to go get her.
    I'll have to scroll back and see, I ordered all the vent rings, and other trim pieces. Where or what are you doing about the door handles, one fix I haven't found yet.

    you are correct KO2's 265/70-16 - I wanted to get the same tires I have on my 4-Runner and F250, Wranglers but they do not make a 10 ply in the 265/70 size.

    So I guess no lift? Would 285's have fit you think?

    I had a weird experience today installing the MESO Stage 1 Total Tail Light Kit. It's an easy plug and play and makes your rear lights more functional. Got everything apart and swapped so I figured I'd test them before putting the light pods back in. One turn signal worked perfectly, the other would illuminate amber on the side I was turning to and white on the other. I swapped the turn signal light (it's a fixed unit) and it did the same thing, amber on the side I was turning towards and white on the other. I traded messages with Stew and he thinks it's a bad wiring harness - he's sending out a new one. Hopefully that's it and not the bulb unit.

    Oh, well, as I tell people in the leadership presentations I give you have to remember the Volk Principle. Sometimes it doesn't matter who you are, who your parents are, where you live, how much money you make, where you went to school or what types of car you drive...some days it just sucks to be you. Today's my day. :rofl:

    Sorry, no lift - straight stock set-up. The 285's will fit with some modification for normal driving, cutting some of the plastic in the rear of the wheel well. I just didn't want to go with a lift and spacer to get to the 285 for what I will be using it for - back country/off road driving where the rubbing will be greater without several modifications. I am no longer a rock crawler but I still get off road to explore, hike, camp, hunt and fish so I wanted the ability to get into areas without too many issues.

    Would you mid getting a few more pics of how the 265's look on the truck from different angles? Trying to decide 285's or 265's.

    Just finished a webinar her at home, too. Luckily, I didn't pay for it - filled with blinding flashes of the obvious. And, I've got a conference call in about an hour, too. This working from home stuff is interesting.

    It is interesting, I have been working out of my house for ten years now and it took me a while to learn how to manage my time. Meaning not work 24/7 24 hours a day. I too had a webinar earlier today and it is amazing how down everyone is. No one is looking for the positives that can come out of this, sure it is hard and scary but change is not always a bad thing - it can be a great thing if managed correctly.

    I agree with you on all counts. The webinar was on the impact of COVID-19 on Higher Education. We are already doing everything they suggested...have been working hard for years to position ourselves strategically, provide quality education while keeping tuition as low as possible, seek alternative sources of revenue, make our programs more experiential and embed credentials in them.... If schools haven't been doing this before, it may be too late for them.

    TRD-Ed, sorry I forgot I had a shot of the tires from Saturday. If you want a more straight on shot I can get that after my call.

    Good guys over there but they weren't willing to budge on MSRP for me. Looks like they might have had multiple AG on their lot as I did not start talking to them until 3/14.
