    Baja has an SAE model, but it failed compliance. They are working on fixing it, but the Diode Dynamics fogs look to have much higher intensity output than Baja.

    We’re driving down to the Boston area for Christmas. It will be a treat to be in warmer weather.

    First issue with the wife's 5th Gen t4r at 126k miles. Neutral safety/ gear indicator switch is going bad. Unless you move the shifter back and forth between n-d a bunch of times it won't display "D" on the MFD and it throws a cell/ knocks the trans out of gear while driving. Fortunately it was only $100 plus $50 overnight shipping from Camelback Toyota ( best I could fine locally was wetborough Toyota @$178, and they couldn't get it till next Friday.). Now I just need to find a warm-ish day to install. Anyone ever done one before? It's 1 bolt and 1 nut on the pass side of the trans. I just haven't looked to see how much of a pita it is to get to.

    I liked it because I'm half way there on my wifes 2016. We have had to replace the gas tank flap due to warping and we had an issue with the MPH digtal area that needed to be fixed under warranty.

    Otherwise has been awesome. Hope to make it 126k with not much else!

    good luck on installation.

    That unit is 18x4, max 50x4. Your power pack would be 45x4. IDK what you're going for but might be better to buy a bigger amp for around that price.

    Trying to not have to rewire everything, as plug and play as possible, and get decent sound out of it.

    It should be worth it in my opinion. The head unit is chip power and the brick will have a small power supply so it's more steady power.

    Matt @loki32687 you might want to check out the Kicker Key amp. Its very cool in that it has it's own dsp built in. It automatically adjusts sound levels and time alignment.
    Search for it on YouTube. 5 star car audio does a good video install and review on it.

    I need one of these for my Ben Franklin stove.
    7A3BB82B-5395-435A-83EC-782E44625970.jpg


    22”W ( front) X 18” (rear) 12” (depth).
    center has hole in it.
    I need to replace it because I do not want hot coals to burn directly on the metal. Eventually it will cause sagging. I have looked but I’ve had no luck. Any suggestions would be helpful and if anybody knows I would very much appreciate it

    I've seen them at tractor supply before, probably of similar quality. Also, this:

    https://www.amazon.com/HY-C-G22-Hea...ywords=fireplace+grate&qid=1576804542&sr=8-14

    If you know somebody who's handy with a welder, you could also have them put tack 1/2" rebar across the bottom. That'd help keep it from warping/sagging from the heat & weight of the wood, but probably not with the burn-thru.

    Gotcha. That won't hurt to start there if you want ease of installation I reckon.

    Exactly. It’s the front grill of the old 1928 model John Deere. They just removed it and welded feet on the bottom.
