    Picked up a 32" 1080p Samsung smart tv from Wally World today. Fits nicely in the trailer bedroom. Thinking about putting a 24" tv in the front sitting area.

    Nope, originally wanted one for the open space but figured having bunk beds would allow for a place for people to stay.

    I'll either sell it when the house is done or just keep it for a rental. After towing it today, it's fortified my original thoughts of there's no effing way i have any interest in ever taking it out to camp in.

    I feel like a Wrangler. 8mpg and EVERYTHING is passing me. Wondering if the RTT is directing a bunch of wind under it and hitting the front of the camper because tundy is struggling even now that i have a tail wind.

    Good thing I went with the Bigfoot then. 10mpg cruising at 65mph in 4th and 5th gear only downshifted to 3rd on steeper hills, handled 20-30mph side wind pretty well even with the short wheelbase of the sequoia.
    Still looking hard for a 2500 or 3500. My empty pockets can only afford gas though

    How much does yours weigh? This is 4300 dry. Had to be the winds since it weighs the same as the dump trailer.

    Yup, construction trailer so I can live on the property while i build.

    Yes and that’s an awesome deal hopefully is there Friday. I just emptied the savings for steel.

    Edit: oh wait. 1-2 months shipping. Can’t wait that long. I’ll need to buy it Friday and start chopping tube. Can’t wait that long. Thanks for looking out tho. I might look at some pawn shops too.

    If I got my Rig that clean, Yellowstone super volcano will erupt in 24, maybe 48 hours from dry off.

    Hit 205 on squats and deadlifts before heading up for a hike. I think I'm gonna sleep well tonight.

    Pretty decent day considering how much I drank. Clear alcohol is a miracle lol

    I think 30 or so. It was towing better when i picked it up so I'm thinking it was wind related, and the rtt must've been doing an anti aerodynamic thing.

    Thanks, baby steps but slowly making progress!

    And not like it would be a surprise, I already have a short list of mods I'll be doing to it. Some switches or disconnect a few dumb lights (touch on cup holder lights). Kill power to the radio until i actually want it on.

    Then there's the extra skylight/vent(s) that I'm thinking would be beneficial. Some extra shelves in the cabinets, more counter space and maybe a pan holder. Just when i think I'm getting ahead.. I'm just making more work.

    Gave Sydney a test run in Moab. She absolutely loved it. Didn't take my truck out much since all my buddies are on 40s haha. It's a mad house this weekend, I left today but was there since Monday

    Now I've got some goals. Damn it.

    Not quite as magnificent... Since my OME kit is ordered, I'm gonna need an impact wrench. Picked up the Kobalt cordless one from Lowe's.

    Oh yeah! Let's do this!

    Has anyone ever accidentally snapped off their f***ing antenna? I have no idea how to fix it

    Either needs a new antenna base, a drilled out antenna base, or.... an entirely new fender??

    Never had to fix or replace but I have seen threads about replacement. I assume the threads are broken off in the base? If you can't drill it and use an easy out then here's replacement instructions: https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/how-to-replace-oem-antenna-in-fender.261341/
