    Thanks!

    I love the color. There are a few colors I was considering. I had thought about getting a Limited in BBP or the Offroad in Quicksand but just kept coming back to Inferno. There is another Tacoworld member (@BMunster) in my town that has an Offroad that is quicksand.

    Cain treated me great, didn't give me a hard time on price and put me in a good spot with terminating my 2014 Rav4 lease 4 months early.

    Yeah, I could. I didn't think I would since it is new but if you have a ziplock baggie on one hand and spray the lube on the paint and slide your hand across you can feel small contaminants. Then, use the clay and go over it again and it feels smooth. It was my first time using clay but it was easy.

    Yep. I have it mounted looking out the back window. The cam isn't bad but if I had the cash and could have done it over I would have gotten one with a parking mode. Right now I leave it record when I go into stores and turn it off manually at home and work since it is in a garage at both places. For the money it is a pretty good camera though.

    Believe me, I know, lol. I spent money on things that can't be seen also, just odds and ends that add up. I probably spent $250 upgrading my cleaning supplies, rags, microfiber towels, chinchilla towels, and I also bought some 303 fabric protector.

    I feel you. I had a set amount of money I was willing to spend and certain things I wanted to buy. I wanted to buy some OME, Bilsteins, or Toytec lift kits but I had to prioritize what I had to spend. I had to have a frank conversation with myself and realize that right now I am not really doing any offroading and I just would like the look of a lift. It will do for now, I will replace the block with springs and rear shocks next year hopefully.

    Oh, I also added Weathertec mudflaps:
    20161111_210550.jpg
    The front driver side rubbed the inside corner on the wheel (265/70 R17) at full turn so I took a heat gun and heated it up and bent it back about 1/4 inch and it doesn't rub anymore.
