    Any recommendations on a shop in Phoenix that can mount tires and do alignment? Found a great deal on tires at Sams Club but they wont mount 265/70/R17 since its not OEM for 2016 TRD Sport. Otherwise i will just haggle with DT and do the alignment at the dealer.

    Never heard where Sam's won't mount a tire that size. I know over 35" places like Walmart won't mess with it.

    Discount is probably your best bet for mount and balance, big O will do it also. Especially if you just drop them off and install yourself.

    Network alignment has a few locations around the valley. I've never had an issue with them. A lot if guys used to use Firestone as well.


    He can usually be found near a local butcher buying bacon. That's all I know.

    Thanks for the reply. Most places inflate the mount price when you purchase the tires elsewhere but i was surprised to find that Toyota Tempe gave me a flat rate of $22 per tire. Too bad their alignment price was high. Otherwise, i dont have another vehicle to transport the rims and putting the truck up on blocks in the parking lot seems a bit tacky. Discount matched Sams price of the tire/mount so i will keep my business with them. I will look into Network Alignment but i heard good things about LEKSFIXIT from others in this thread so i may give them a try.

    Alignment should be about 80$. If you're not lifted with SPC arms or adjustable heims it should be straight forward alignment.
    Good luck

    Any third gen guys have the hardware for fog lights? I discovered one of my fogs had rattled loose the other day. IIRC I think I used a standard house screw and it clearly didn't do the job long term. Feels like I installed them a year ago when it was probably February.

    Here is a crazy story for everyone. My Harley is back!!!!!

    I was filing paperwork the other day and came across the title to the Harley Davidson I sold back in February. The guy who bought it was some super rich younger guy who travels all over the world constantly. So I call him up to ask where he wants me to send the title and hes like "man I never registered the bike, rode it like ten miles, left the country, haven't come back to AZ yet and its just sitting in storage collecting dust, do you want it back?" I said HELL YEAH faster than he could finish the sentence! After a couple weeks sorting out the fact that he lost the keys I finally picked it up yesterday. I definitely thought this bike was gone forever. Im happier than a pig in shit right now.

    Does anyone know where to source handle mounts/handles for Dometic fridges? I've tracked some down from Australia... And that's it.

    Looking for CF80 handles/mounts. Otherwise.. I have some modeled up to machine.. but would rather not.

    Billet would look cool for sure, but I was thinking of cost and it would get hot

    Thanks, I appreciate your concern. As a bicycle rider and motorcycle rider I try to be acutely aware of everything going on around me and would definitely say Im a defensive rider. It is very scary riding the roads around here. At least up in Cave Creek people are a lot more used to motos being everywhere.

    Road, gravel, MTB, cruiser, you name it the answer is yes. Cave Creek/Carefree is pretty nice, probably the best road riding in the valley since the roads actually curve hahaha. You can ride to actual gravel/dirt roads instead of just canal trails. Also its consistently ~5 degrees cooler than Phoenix since the elevation is 2400 feet. Most people dont realize how much higher up it is since its only 20 miles away and its false flat the whole way up here.

    I think I have some mounting tabs for this you can have. They came with my fridge slide. I'll get them out of my tool box and see what brand they are for

    EDIT: I know the mounts are for CF line but the screws might be for something else

    Shit!! Those would have been perfect! Hmmm let me see if I can cancel my order then. How many are there? 4? One for each mount?

    I'm literally getting it all fitted right now. Just waiting for the handles from Australia.

    perfect! thanks man. I appreciate it.

    what straps are you running with your fridge? I was planning on using the Tortuga straps with the factory Dometic handle as thats how they work together..

    upload_2020-9-5_11-24-36.jpg

    but now I'll need individual straps (4)..

    My fridge is mounted from the bottom to the slide. It has holes for the different brands of fridges and you remove the bolts that hold the feet on and then you put the a slightly longer one in from under the slide plate back in to the OEM holes. I also have 4 MSA straps attached to the handles because they came with the kit. The MSA ones are basically a branded turnbuckle strap you can get anywhere. They remind me of the ones that my paddle boards came with.
