    Oh yeah, I totally get why you ran the hose and have an external switch! I've only got one car seat to deal with, and it is already a pain. Especially since it lives on the 60 side of the 60/40 folding seat. But crap, having two seats so that nothing folds back without a major hassle would be a major PITA.

    I arranged stuff so that the things trapped behind the car seat are mostly "emergency" or infrequently used items I rarely get out. With those ridiculous stock storage bins removed I can also access some of the things near the center still behind the 60 portion with just the 40 folded down. That said I've ended up behind that 60 section more frequently than I've expected! Fortunately the truck isn't a DD so I don't actually install the car seat unless we are going camping.

    I've actually got a Britax Boulevard here that needs to go to the dump because it was in a major accident over the summer. Did you mention an AR-15 at some point in this thread? It's yours for target practice if we ever manage to cross paths ;)

    Thanks - that means something coming from you!

    That's hilarious! I've been car seat free for about a year. That's almost better that diaper free! Almost. Great Job on the OBA. Just curious do you do anything else besides work on your truck? J/K man your blazing the trail for the rest of us. Your build thread is so well laid out that if I need to know how to go about something I start on your page! :thumbsup: Cant wait till Wed. when we hook up the trailer and head towards Death Valley.

    I can't wait to be car seat free and I haven't even started (currently baking) with the third round yet...

    I'm waiting for the Mr Fusion model which I can pop used diapers into for extra fuel (skip the old gas can). I'm thinking I'll be driving the current Tacoma for years to come.

    I have a rear MOLLE panel in the garage I was going to install, but I think with three car seats back there, there is no point.

    Welcome!

    Thanks. Yes. I'm dying to get out and get some time on the gun. April is looking good for that.

    Have fun in DV! I've put in more time in on the truck than I care to admit, but it's worth it considering I'm going to operate it for another 13 years. This May will be seven years of ownership, and I still should be able to retire it from DD duties as well, later this year.

    I've thought about throwing in the towel on truck building and just buy a surf board and go surf. Only live 20 mins from the beach. :D

    My hat's off to you.

    My wife and I went round and round about the possible third child. But in the end I'm very happy with two and decided it would be too much for us to handle.

    I'm going to take that long walk down the hallway at the Dr's office next month. :pray:

    Each additional child has made me happier and my life fuller, but I still can't believe I'm resetting the 18+ year clock again. I may have to get that office number from you... :sawzall:

    No point. You'll just go insane. :( Like @DVexile said, just store emergency tools and supplies back there.

    I was in on that as well. Have you seen the thread where they resurrected it? I think they were up around 20+. It's a great idea.

    The Tacoma Mr. Fusion will still get like 30 to 40% fewer miles per diaper than every other truck on the road...

    The 1GR-FE air filter? No. I run factory paper one which I like, and have no plans to change from. I generally change it out every 6 months for $18 or so.

    Somewhere here on TW is a huge test of air filters and the end result is that the K&N filters were absolutely horrifically bad. The K&N let past enormous amounts of particulates that the stock filter does not. The air filter is one of those cases where the "fancy" and more expensive filters are actually over priced garbage. Stick with the OEM.

    Which reminds me, given all the dusty roads I'm on I probably need to change mine pretty soon...

    I guess I will chime in here since I have useful input. I have tried the "oil less" from the name brands and the K&N oiled and then taken the intake runner off to see what the intake looks like. Youre best bet is the buy either the OEM from the factory or the WIX from which ever auto parts near you. The WIX is a little thicker physically but not sure on media area. I stick to stock and in my case carry a couple of extras.
