    My next vehicle will definitely maybe be an Acura RDX, or a BMW X3, or maybe an Audi A5. Although if I were to buy an overpriced unreliable vehicle it would be a Range Rover Evoque or its twin in a Jaguar E-Pace.

    i'd say trade the truck in. I thought the same lately since my gf Honda Fit don't even have 60k miles and is more family friendly, and the Taco may worth more (if I don't get trough it before) in trade in value for another vehicle. T4R or Tahoe are great choice imo. Don't know much about the Tahoe, but maybe 4R is more reliable in the long run? Here we also all like Toyota's, so most will lean on the 4R side haha

    If you want to keep the truck you can also consider a cap to get more dry storage. When its going to be time to trade the access cab i'll look seriously into DCLB, with a cap. Life with a cap is awesome

    My hi lift base didn’t fit in the safe jack system, so I made it fit. Cut up the base and welded it to a new, 1/4” thick base thanks to @Skierrichy. Did a few passes and blended it together a bit. Gonna paint it tomorrow!

    Ok, I'll bite, what is it and what does it do?

    Edit, never mind, somehow I missed the description at the top of the pics. Duh. Blonde moment.

    Yeah the 2nd and 3rd pics are on my tailgate! It’s got the smooth mobtown reinforcement plate and the outer steel cap (two separate pieces). Really makes it feel stout.

    Ha! We all have blonde moments. This is the system I was making it fit in. Check out the video in that page.

    Well shit that guy that paints the scenery in the low monotone voice gives it a thumbs up so I am sold!!!

    Actually that's pretty bad ass. I gotta learn how to weld some day. I'm sure I would suck at it but I will never know if I never try.

    Another quality #RandyFab project.

    Way to use space efficiently and make it more reinforced, that's awesome

    How's your damage from AOAA Randy?
    It just looked like your mirror but I was betting you have some good pinstripes too!

    Its more than that. I love fixing any vehicle. My 93 was totaled twice. Fixed it like new twice. This one the insurance company is giving the runaround. Part of me says total it buy it back. Part of me says let the insurance company fix it.

    Is it smoking at start up? Smoking whill idling? Going into radiator? Leaking? If u have the oem oil cooler, check the seals. They leak at times, leave little to no trace. Or rear cam seals. I can go one solved many oil consumptions in my time. Just never on a 2.7. 22r and a 22re yes.

    My bedside too! It’s nice and wrinkly. And little scuffs here and there. One perk of the white paint is you really can’t see pinstripes.
