    Had to wait a solid 30 minutes for my truck to warm up enough to even attempt to scrape it off

    It warmed up a lot here last night. It was 35 when I went to bed and 35 when I got up. It was -5 when I got to work yesterday and -13 the day before that with highs in the teens.

    Right? Don't tempt me with near 50⁰ I'll be out there with my rinseless wash (neighbors probably think im insane).
    I do like to drive it through a car wash at least once after winter though to help clean out the underside.. mag chloride scares me, lol.

    I took the van through dirty Harry's car wash yesterday, scratchy brush be damned. Got all the slop off and sprayed the underside thoroughly. You could always try that, bring your own sponge, soak it in soapy water and rinse it off, be able to pressure wash the underside too. Just a thought.

    Dirty Harry's always seem like decent locations.

    I tried to go through the Jacksons in Eagle what i thought was touchless car wash on Wednesday. Paid the $10 and the doors rolled up and there's sloppy "brushes" hanging, it was like a nightmare, I noped out. Thankfully the jacksons clerk refunded me.

    I think I've spent like $500 on detailing supplies the last 2 years from TRC; still don't own a sponge, I love the chenille mitts. Everyone raves about the sponges with rinseless.

    Either way you could do a car wash and scrub it yourself. I like the DH ones because the water is heated and it helps get the gunk off better.

    I definitely second the dirty hairy’s when got my CDL the guy who tested me is actually the owner and recognised my tow truck because it was one of the few places that could take the tow truck through and it was heated in the winter.

    Problem with washing your dirty truck. You find people's dirty secrets.. actually I think it happened today...

    Anyways, glad I was able to get out and get the grime off her. False Spring has been great.

    Looking to regear my truck to 5.29's and I was wondering if anyone in this forum had some suggestions or recommendations for places to go? I am looking for someone in the Nampa, Boise area preferably.

    I would avoid apex offroad, 4wd parts might be an option. I have a buddy @idaho_tacoma on instagram who used to do regears here in the valley. He might be the guy but I’d have to ask if he still does them.

    I don’t have first hand experience but from all of my buddies that have gone to apex (formerly taco vinal) or those that worked for them they don’t have great things to say. The valley is definitely lacking a 4x4 orented shop there’s a few bucks, apex, talus but there isn’t a great place I feel.
