    I forget where but I saw that Pioneer elsewhere for the same price, not sure if it's just out for the moment on Crutchfield though. I've been happy with the Pioneer radios and amp I have/had before

    5 to 10 here tonight chaps! My day is shaping up to remounting my rusty sliders (potentially and probably), I guess clearing out and remaining snow bits that gotta go before this storm.

    Only 2-4 here. The storms seem to track south pretty often over the past couple years.

    I was planning sliders but those aren’t a need for my road trip so priority today will be starting the sleeping setup. Ripping out the passenger seat and then starting my sleeping platform build.

    If I have time this afternoon I’ll start do the sliders. I think it wouldn’t be the worst idea to wait until the salt goes away for the summer too. So yeah this afternoon adios seats!

    The idea is to have the passenger seat easy in and out. I need the cable to recal the sensor but the rear seat is probably semi-permanently coming out.

    you can have it back.

    I could use a new drivers seat...I got it with 78K and the previous owner was heavy and ashed cigars in a cup in his lap...Seat smells like cigars in hot summer sun and there are burn holes that were repaired but now have re-appeared...and the seat has lost some comfort...

    My black truck was owned by a smoker, I bought this stuff online to get ride of the smoke smell. It’s an aerosol that you spray the interior with, close the door on a hot summer day and let it bake in. That, coupled with some charcoal absorption packs under the seats and a cabin filter change and I got rid of the smell. I can take a picture of the can if you’re interested (or, if you’re close, you can have the rest of the can if you want it).

    It's funny....I've had the truck for 8 years now and I never tried a spray...Let me know what it is. I did the charcoal stuff and it just seems to never end. At least it's a cigar and not cigarettes...
    I'd take it in the can too...
    I mean take the can..

    Tacoma seats, in tact...Not an easy find. The air bags are almost always deployed or the seat is covered in blood...

    My research indicates they are using a human blood based propellant for the air bags...

    Calling for 8 inches of heavy sloppy crap tomorrow starting 0800 ending around sun down. Yippee.

    on the plus side I’m making my Sunday gravy today so I can chow down between shovel passes tomorrow. And got a big ol pork loin and will be cutting that up tonight and doing some shredded for my sauce.


    I’m not unaware of why I am overweight.

    Anyone use these before?

    https://www.harborfreight.com/3800-weatherproof-protective-case-large-tan-56769.html

    I am planning my sleeping platform, and these would in theory fit. 3 of them would be laid down and would support likely a piece of ply on top of all that. But, it’s either these or the dewalt stacking ones. The dewalt ones only support 66lbs (probably 0.66 factor of safety so 100lbs but still). These are 2x as much as the dewalts, so I’m wondering if they’re worth it.

    I don't know about how much weight they will hold on the top of them but I have the extra large one on top of my truck for tools and recovery gear and I love it.

    They look like Pelican cases. Supposed to be exactly what you expect: a HF version of something that if you buy brand-name, is super expensive. You get what you pay for, but if those things last even 2 years they're worth the chance seeing that they'll probably get beaten up in the truck and on trips.

    In other news, trying to convince myself to watch the Super Bowl tomorrow... no local teams in the game definitely has its detriments on my interest level. (I say that as a casual NFL/Giants fan)

    that’s kind of what I was thinking. I can’t find a weight rating but they gotta be more than the dewalt boxes. And more versatile. But twice as much :| eh I’ll figure it out. Thanks gents! Glad someone has used them before.
