    I agree with this sentiment @Mojo Jojo

    The trade off for the poor MPG is less power loss when upsizing tires though so that’s nice at least for the 470. Ideally I can get about 16 mpg highway driving 70 mph even with 3” lift and 285s.

    City I’m sitting at 12-14. But my daily commute is <10 miles round trip, which killed mpg even in my 2013 Tacoma.

    Funny enough my 05 GX has more tech crap than the 2013 Tacoma.

    Exactly. Totally worth it in my opinion.

    I've been daily driving heavy lifted Toyotas for the last 15 years so I am used to the bad MPGs haha

    $700 for the set of 4 and I'll drive an hour in your direction to save you 2 hours of driving. And you get the satisfaction of having some bad ass tires.

    So I was going through may garage yesterday and realize I have at least 2 sets of stock UCAs with maybe 1000 miles on them. Anyone need a ball joint refresh? Not looking for any $$$ for them. Willing to install for a small fee.

    How do you keep getting these? I got my last renewal set from you for free:D I will take them off your hands, but only if you let me pay you something for them. I'm not quite ready for a new set yet, but used UCAs with low miles on them are getting harder to find.
    Also, I need to bring you back your snorkel hole saw anyway. So, unless someone else is in need of them, I'd be happy to have them for my next set(s)

    People leave them when I do lifts. I just double checked and I have 1 set. You can have it. Give me what you feel you want to but I wont ask for anything. And I forgot you had my hole saw. When are you free for a hand off?

    Also, I have a set of stock fogs with bulbs if anyone needs them. If yours are damaged, yellowed, who knows.

    Adam, I can get them from you next week before or after work, whenever it's convenient for you. Again, if anyone has an urgent need for them, they can have them.

    I don't need any fogs

    Good morning! :wave:

    Taking mom to see dad in the rehab center this evening, so I'll be able to see him for the first time in about a week and a half. From what I've heard, he's been eating better and doing good with his therapy. Still about the same with his left side paralysis tho, but we're still being hopeful.

    Y'all have a great weekend & stay safe!

    Got in to see Dad tonight. Man he looks much better. Nearly broke my hand squeezing it when he shook my hand! Therapist said he's been doing so much better swallowing that they're updating his diet from thickened liquids(which he hates) and minced foods to now getting foods cut bite-sized and normal liquids. He said his therapy went real good today too! Not having to wear a hospital gown anymore but he is still has to have a catheter.
    He's much more fully alert and aware of what has happened to him and what he needs to do to work towards standing, walking, etc. So that's a positive too!

    Need some help. Driving into work tonight (this morning o_O) with the radio on and cruise activated, auto high beams on manual. I went to activate the high beams, and only when activating, the cruise control disengaged and the radio turned off and restarted on it's own. This happened four times, twice back to back. Speaking in non mechanic terms, I'm assuming there is a power draw from a shared source (relay?) causing the interruptions to the other two systems. Also assuming that I'm not getting enough power to all three systems for some reason. Any ideas where I should start looking?

    EDIT: This morning when leaving work, I saw that my mpg had been reset to zero (from 17.7) and the dashboard info window I had it set to was changed to the digital spedometer. ??
