    My problem with hard wiring a micro USB is the connectors are a failure point. Most of mine wear out within 6 months of use depending on the brand. My vote is hardwire a USB port and get a long micro usb cable from monoprice. Far easier to replace a bad cable then the entire hard wired unit.

    Anyone know where I can get some aluminum or sheet metal circles cut? like ~8" diameter. Need four of them, gonna try to make my XD's look different by replacing the stupid plastic center caps with a flat plate to cover the lugs/hubs.

    The woman jumps in my truck this evening and starts telling me how much she loves the Tacoma.

    I mentioned that I could make it even bigger with dirty fives, her eyes got all big and she goes oh you need to do that.

    I think I'm going to keep her.:cool:

    Hit some metal on rock at Uwharrie last week and today found out what it was:

    Literally bent 90 degrees. Must have been some rock...

    Nah told Steph tonight I want an Earthroamer for a tow rig and then SAS and tube bed the Taco.

    Now to just find all that money I buried.

    I honestly wouldn't run something that heavy on a V6. If I'm going camper of that magnitude I'm going Diesel and 8ft bed.

    Like the 86 :)

    I like how you have all the badges in the back. I love the Toyota FRS look I see so often.

    Truggy instead out of the Tacoma. It'll be paid off in 24 months, and I plan on cutting it up and wheeling the piss out of it. Paint is fucked from artillery spores, it already has an assload of dents, scratches, and paint damage. Might as well do it.

    Tundra for a tow vehicle.
