    Study the CarFax for it. There is often a good amount of info (and possibly insight) there.

    Is it attached by double sided tape? Or is the pressure from the cut enough to hold?

    I think all the Velcro tape has double sided tape. It is just a small piece , maybe size of nickel or slightly larger.

    The 6 speed auto in my Tacoma hasn't learned shit. It's just as terrible after 4 months and nearly 7000 miles as it was on day 1. I don't know where people are getting this nonsense, but my assessment of the auto is that it's programmed to maximize fuel economy, but it doesn't seem to do much for real world mileage. Plus the 3.91 gears make it even worse, especially on even the slightest hilly terrain. Regearing to 4.88 or 5.29 is pretty much a necessity.

    I'm sure it's probably too late, but I'll never buy a used vehicle without having a trusted mechanic go over it first. I've been burned a few times by shady dealers. They always seem to be hiding something about the vehicle, but an experienced mechanic with a high end scan tool can see everything.

    I looked this truck over and even got under it, and everything looked good and drove well. Looked at the carfax. I am very happy with this truck

    I heard back from 1Up and they said that I can DIY fix the rusty nut/washer. There was no offer of a replacement bolt or washer which was disappointing. However, I do like a DIY project as it's more excuse to buy tools that I don't have and will only more than likely use once.

    The steps are as follows. Remove the main pivot nut with a 27mm socket and a cheater bar. Use rust remover on the nut and washer. Remove any remaining rust with a wire brush and 100 grit sandpaper. Grease the bolt. Install washer and nut and torque it to gutnteit lbf/ft. Paint with Rustoleum flat black rattle can. I think it looks better than the original.

    Maybe a dumb question here - but any way to get the album artwork to actually work on the head unit when bluetoothing from spotify on android?

    It shows up if the artist and album are in the gracenote db for the headunit. New stuff and obscure bands aren't generally in it.

    You get 2 in a pack. I mounted the other one on the back of our headboard in the bedroom. It's strong enough to hold a fully loaded S&W Governor!

    Yeah, when I was stationed out there I bought a Rock Island Armory, 1911 in 2002. I remember paying....doing the background check and the sales clerk said "I'll see ya' in 10 days". I was like WTF.... He explained it's the "Cooling off period".
