    It's niche, but it sounds like she knows exactly what she wants to do, which is good haha. I'm sitting here a year away from getting my Bachelors, and 2 years away from graduating with my Masters wondering hmm, where am I gonna go and what am I gonna do.

    That's really cool, and probably satisfying knowing she's a key role in someone living!

    I deff agree that you shouldn't have to finance it. I wasn't going to finance it but they threw the 12 month interest free so I figure keep a bit more cash on hand and pay it off in three months. It's kinda stressing me out to have even financed any of it though. I don't like oweing people money.

    I need to get my finances straight before planning much else.

    I was planning on having sold my front suspension by now. Luckily I think I'll be able to make a small profit on it and should zero out on roof racks after selling the frontrunner.

    Need compressor advice. Worth going ARB. Vlair work just fine? Under hood mount or keep it in the vehicle?

    Will likely be getting a CO2 tank as well but want a compressor for backup.

    Definitely carry a compressor as a back up. CO2 runs out randomly depending on who filled it and how

    I'm making drawers for my runner. Once I have the CNC programmed, I can print them out like crazy. Anybody else want some?

    I'm debating. I could either go all out and do a badass drawer system (include a sub box for my sub), or I could make a simple raised floor and slide action packers underneath. I think I'm leaning Drawers just for the expo points.

    I'm just doing a little drop box on pass. side for misc things like jumper cables, tow strap, etc. Box also houses my 8" sub and amp goes in the factory storage behind the box. Will probably do a low profile drawer half the width of the 4Runner with a table top that folds up and has sockets and tools in it.

    Nice. I'm thinking a 2/3 to 1/3 drawer split. Two drawers total. 10" high so they sit flush with the second row when folded down. Fridge slide on one side.

    I'd do tall drawers but my second row seats fold flat and I don't want to lose too much cargo space
