    Installed 0.75” Bora wheel spacers in the rear. It brings out just enough to fill up nice ‘n flush. :thumbsup:

    Jesus. That doesn't sound fun. Now I guess ill need 5 of them. They sell the rear 3 and the carrier bearing for 85 bucks on ebay, decent Spicer stuff as well. Hopefully I can find a friend to help

    The trailer brakes make a huge difference. I wouldn’t do it without trailer brakes.

    Installed the camper shell roof rack today. Yakima must be making money hand over fist considering the price of tower/locks. Now onto the camper tail light wiring... @RugglesTarlek

    Installed my Desert Does It front seat molle panel, and stuck my fire extinguisher on it. Works great so far, and tucks enough out of the way. I like it!

    The website is TACOMABEAST, they're $50, made in the USA, they come with new pin/clips. I used a plastic 90 degree pry tool to remove the old pins.
    Your other choice is sold by Gear Tech Customs, by PROTEC. Which are $75/80 and are a singular piece for each side.

    it was just crammed everywhere before and I’d go around the truck like 3 times before I found what I wanted and was getting tired of that.

    Not all I have in there is necessary but I like being prepared for emergencies and such. Gives that extra ease of mind

    I replaced my fronts with Spicer 5-153x,

    As I recall auto parts stores and Amazon can’t quite recognize the size needed for the front drive shaft only the rears. I went of number found on TW for these and they are a perfect fit, with the zerk in a slightly different place than the stock ones.

    No sticker (surely I would have seen it...maybe ) . I have a 15 so hopefully I'm good to go. That was probably 30K miles ago, so I guess by now I would have known I screwed up....maybe lol.

    Thanks for the info

    I spent yesterday afternoon rotating tires, greased it, changing oil, then washed it up. Got the urd fuel pump upgrade and true cold air intake ordered. It was a productive day.

    Changed my plugs today and I decided to replace the PCV valve for the first time. 107k miles and the ball still moved in the old valve but sounded a bit sludgy.
