    Here's a tip I learned from experience. While camping in my rooftop tent, I got up in the middle of the night to take a whiz. I decided to have a smoke before going back to bed. My cigs were in the cab. I grabbed the door handle and it auto-unlocked. My key fob was in one of the pockets in my tent. That's when it hit me that anyone could do it and steal all my stuff or even start the truck and give me a wild ride. Moral of the story: Disable your key fob when sleeping near the truck.

    Simpler solution: Use a pee bottle and never get out of bed.

    A friend uses a Ziploc bag with a diaper in it. No spill!

    I just pee out of the tent!

    Not sure if this the best place to ask if not please let me know where.
    i installed a ARB compressor on my 2017 Tacoma along with some LED lights, I used the CaliRaised switch panel but the ARB rocker switch wont fit. I trimmed the panel to fit but you still cant operate the rocker switch. Any suggestions on alternative switches or mounting tips.

    Thank you,

    An unusually high amount of pinstriping.
    I went with CH4X4. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B017C2YT5A/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It's a little on the expensive side, but it fits the blank space nicely.

    Offensive stickers and stuff the wife doesn't know about.
    Any of my fellow mil guys know that the wide mouth Gatorade (or in Afghanistan "Mega Sport") bottles are the best pee bottles...hell I even prefer bottles over piddle packs, they may be designed for that sole purpose but I've still seen tons of them spill, aircrew guys know whats up...
