    Got the 'apeman' front and rear facing with 'hardwire kit' off Amazon (didn't want to plug into the center console, kit lets you plug into the diagnostic port I guess so it has power in parking lots for monitoring). Had rave reviews and one of the pilots has it and said it works fine. Regardless, it'll be better than nothing.

    Yeah. I keep thinking I'm showing my age with my lack of interest in cameras. I mean, I dig the backup camera for obvious reasons, and when towing I can see the benefit of anytime rearview i suppose (i tow only occasionally). But front view? To re-watch the accident I might have someday? Am I missing something? (I often am)

    My aftermarket stereo allows for front and rear anytime, but of course the '13 would require some investment to take advantage of it. Even the rearview is in the mirror, not the dash....

    If it were cheap and easy, I might bite on it.

    The reason I want one is for the "he said/she said" that can go on after a traffic accident. It's not there for me to rewatch, it's there for me to provide solid evidence that I was either at fault or not. I have no problem or qualms about owning up to my mistakes, so if it's a very low speed bump and they claim severe whiplash, I can provide evidence to the contrary.

    ...dash camera. For dipshit drivers/accidents.
    Ive been a witness to a bunch, for some reason. But the most common are ‘their blinker wasnt on’ and ‘my light was green’. I’m doing a dash cam for CYA because people are generally liars.

    Unfortunately mine doesn't have the auto dimming mirror. So my choice is to either hard wire it to an ignition source or wire in a 12v male plug and use one of the 12v ports.

    There's an optional parking wire harnesses that ties into a constant power source. That way when the vehicle is running the camera will too. But when you shut off the truck the camera automatically goes into motion activated mode

    Interesting distinction within the 2.5 gens. Amazing where Toyota found to save a couple bucks on these trucks

    I've got an auto dimming mirror sitting on my dresser I was going to retrofit into my 09 white truck (rip.) since it had a backup camera but nowhere to display it. Should probably get around to selling that thing sometime...

    I recently dropped my tank and well. My fuel gauge was all over the place for a week then it just stopped working. While I was in there, might as well replace the pump.

    Replaced my Michelin LTX M/2's with some Continental Terrian contacts A/T's. Really happy with them, nice and smooth and quiet on the highway. I went up one size from stock, 265/75/16. Still rocking all stock suspension.

    Looks great. That one size up makes a big difference. That's the size I run on my snow tires. My DD tires are +1 as well...265/70/17
