    quality of life changes:

    seating position :
    re-foamed seat, 3rd gen headrests (although if i had a workshop this - https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads...ld-and-adventures.362772/page-8#post-10525266 would have been better) and @olecoot seat risers. massive difference in how my body feels after long drives, super stoked -

    converted a scepter water can to house a hand pump, easy water on demand at camp - based off this but i used a cheaper pump

    sound deadening, now able to talk at a normal level again - i only did behind the rear seats and floor and C pillar

    yeah i had a “homemade” bracket there too that made it difficult to use one side of the fuse block, not that i have a ton of stuff in it, but this is a nice clean bracket for sure - its available on Amazon too but seemed better to buy direct

    ran out to the desert and did a 'soft' install on the new weboost so @prof.jones could keep working - it worked great

    How are you liking the Yokohama’s so far? Looks like you have put quite a few on and off-road miles - how they handle on each? They are on my short list but might be overkill for all the highway miles I drive for work.

    i am really enjoying them, i like the way they have been handling offroad, they haven't missed a beat - for us. they are quiet enough but not quiet on the hwy, but that comes with the territory i guess. but yes, loving them - doesn't hurt that they look good too, i think
