    On trips I have a 285/75r16 under there and drilled 2 new holes to move the tyre hoist back a bit. It’s level with the bottom of the hitch but for real wheeling it goes in the bed, daily driving it stays home

    Well shit. You have added just a bit ik weight then. Curb weight on a stock 2nd gen v6 4x4 is somewhere in the neighborhood of 4200. If you have already added an extra ton, you may want to be wary of pulling a trailer. The original ratings were based on stock setup, which allows for a payload of about 1000 lbs, or 6500 lb trailer. If you have oversized tires, and you haven't regeared, 6000+ lbs of truck with the trailer is going to make your transmission want to disown you. Even with regearing, your axles probably won't want to be your best friend anymore.

    I see now though why you'd want E rated, being such a fatty and all. Your truck should go on a diet...

    I've noticed a little bit of water on the passenger side of my 3rd gen. It was going into the dealership for other work so I asked them to take a look. Without blinking they said the Prinsu roof rack.
    Am I crazy to think if it was the roof rack leaking the headliner would be wet?

    no, I had a similar issue on my GX, except it was driver side. The seatbelt/floor was sometimes getting wet after I installed a prinsu rack. Headliner was dry, water was made its way in via a bolt on the prinsu mounting bracket. It’s been sealed up and has been fine.

    other cause maybe a sunroof drain, if you have one. I had checked mine and it was fine.

    Thanks- What did you do to seal it? I originally used a good amount of 3M marine-grade sealant. I was thinking of going over all the mounting points with a butyl seal tape.

    O yeah, I know exactly what you are saying.

    I'm not running oversize tires currently, but will be going up one inch so I can get the Duratracs in E. Before I do that, I will be having my truck re-geared. Either 4.30 or 4.56. I'm not sure yet which. Will also have the transmission serviced at that time, along with transfer case fluids changed. I've actually been amazed my bearings have held up. I bought a spare front bearing setup a few years back just in case, but still been going fine (knock on wood). I'm not suggesting anyone run like I do, but the truck has treated me well since I purchased it new in 2011, and I hope it continues. I've only got about 102,000 miles on it, and I'm betting at least a third of those are towing.

    4th gear has been my friend. Once I re-gear, maybe I'll be able to use 5th again!! Also helps that I've learned 65 mph is fast enough, and perfectly happy in the slow lane going over the pass (which I do, ALL THE TIME, lol). Doing 70+ averaging 8mpg to Moses Lake really sucked fuel when towing. Keeping it at or under 65 has kept me between 11 and 12. Also a safer speed!

    i went back over the bolts (checked for tightness) and used a generous amount of clear silicone sealant. It doesn’t look the best up close, but it keeps the water out.

    Yup, i had a leak from my Prinsu that i noticed under my floor mats, it was coming thru the A pillar and the headliner wasn't wet at all when i looked initially.

    Re-posting from my Nextdoor feed: A local who lives in the Gatewood area had his 1988 Xtra Cab Toyota truck stolen last night during the storm. This is not a photo of his truck but it is the same model and graphics, although his is a darker grey and has different wheels. If you see anything that matches that description please notify the police and feel free to message me so I can relay the information to the owner.

    Unfortunately, the owner owns many vehicles and can't recall the license on this truck.upload_2021-1-13_13-34-1.jpg
    I've already referred them to the Tukwila address posted a couple of weeks ago in regard to a different stolen truck.

    Damn still without power? Heard there were also power lines on I5 at some point. Storm came through fairly strong. Ours was off from 0600-1100 luckily just made me shift my work day.

    Stuff and things... maybe a little rust
    My power went out around 6:30am yesterday and my wife said it came back on again around noon. Leaving at 4:45am there were lots of branches on the roads but otherwise smooth sailing. I did see a guy blow through the intersection at hwy 9 and Market Pl doing about 50 even though they had flares marking all 4 corners of the intersection. I pulled out just far enough to see both ways and floored it across once I couldn't see any more lights coming.
