    Just cuz its flat don't mean its not high. I think the lowest point in UT is still like 2800' or so down by St. George.

    He responded, rather quickly too I might add. It is supply chain issues. The 514 has been backordered through the manufacturer for six months. They are currently trying to redesign the cooler to work around said issues. I emailed him back and asked if I could buy the remainder of the kit, minus the cooler in the off chance I could source one on my own. We'll see what he says. He did assure me the setrab would perform just as well... but those are also out of stock until end of June.

    I believe him, if you can't get your hands on the 514 then I would still be really happy with the setrab. I've seen it in person and it's deceptively large. I would rather get that and get it installed asap rather than wait around in hopes of finding a 514.

    He again responded quickly. He would knock $200 off the kit. But I can't find one. They are listed as in-stock on Texas Speed and Summit, but say they ship direct from supplier...which I seriously doubt actually has any.

    I was poking around too just now and I'm not seeing anything anywhere. With summer quickly approaching, I would just hop on the setrab personally. I would also get a scangauge to monitor temps because it also aids in the installation of the cooler to do the fluid check easier.

    Before I go too crazy, I am picking the truck up in the next few days. I don't remember specifically checking for a trans cooler because in ignorance I thought it was included in the tow package. The previous owner didn't seem to spare any expense, so maybe I will get lucky and it will have one of these kits already on it...:rofl:

    Picked up the new whip this afternoon! No trans cooler unfortunately, but looking fantastic none the less! Averaged 18.3 mpg on the drive home.

    I just switched to them today. To insure the Tahoe, Taco, and Tundie with 3 times the coverage I was carrying through my previous provider, it cost the same as I was paying for just the Taco and Tahoe with my old insurance! Doing the SafePilot app as well to knock it down even further.

    I had four rock lights as bed bar lights so once I got rid of the tent, I gave the lights to my buddy Shawn. He came over last night and I wired them up, and I’m pretty impressed for only the four lights (versus the 12 I have on Betty white). One in front of each tire, one in the center of the truck and one above the rear axle.

    Got my $147 eBay special tonneau in today. I’m honestly really impressed for the price. It not perfect because the bed isn’t exact shortbed dimensions, but it will do the job of sealing up the bed 95%

    Have a link? It doesn't look too bad for only $147!

    Have either of you had to file a claim? If so, how did it go?

    I know right?? I have the Tyger brand on the Tundra and the quality is a little nicer (it was around $240) but I knew I didn't need anything that nice on Betty, mainly because I wasn't sure how well it would fit on the bobbed bed. If you go to the sellers profile, they offer them for a multitude of trucks.
