    I prefer to support TW venders over others—-especially Amazon. Just my 2 cents. Also, Amazon is not always the cheapest place to buy anything.

    The only name I recognized on the Amazon list was Hooke Off-road. I've also been looking at ATH, Leitner (sp?), Rago, TotalChoas and CaliRaised. I'm all for supporting TW vendors but there is a 40% price different in the next cheapest option. If that's just pure price difference then that's pretty significant. If that's price difference due to stolen R&D, shoddy craftmanship, thin metal, etc. then I can see a reason for the higher priced options.

    Thanks for that. They have only increased price slightly to $119 plus tax since your 2019 order. It's too bad, their name doesn't get thrown around too much in the bed stiffener discussions from what I've seen. Biggest difference I can see is 5/32 vs 3/16 steel between the two, AND the Victory4x4 don't intrude out vertically into the bed as much as the Hooke Off-road ones.

    Never enough
    My fridge came with a remote that screams at me if the fridge looses power. Should help with determining if the Jackery cuts out. Im guessing because it was so cold your fridge wasnt running and therefore the Jackery shut down from not being used. Ill keep you posted though on my results.

    yes, I really like this one because it also has a detachable front camera so you can mount it in a different location than just on the outside of the mirror so nothing gets in the way of the dash cam.

    Better to pay the extra $20 and get them from a reputable brand that has tested them and are proven to work and be of high quality.

    No, it’s still the same price. Just ask for the 5% discount for Tacomaworld members or try 5SALE

    Might try this for 15% off—-if it still works:

    @crashngiggles @zippo88 @the_black_tacoma @DG92071

    As I said, installing the Bushwhacker flares we noticed our tires were all cracked and dangerous looking, so we bit the bullet and got four new one...but what size should we get? The 265/70/16 looked REALLY tiny with the new flares on it, so should I stay safe and go with 265/75/16 or go for broke with a 285/75/16? Please note I do have 5100s all around with OME 884 springs on front and an add a leaf on the back.

    I do have a local tire guy who I have gone with for many years. At first he said to go with the 265/75/ and would not recommend the larger tires. He called me later that same day and said that he might have been premature on fitting the larger tire. He had on in stock and told me he would test fit the tire on one of my wheels and see. I told him to go with the ones that would fit and order four of them.

    Well, he called me this morning to tell me the truck was ready and the 285/75/16 tires were on and had no rubbing issues. I did remind him that I actually go offroad in this truck and he said it should not be an issue. I love the look and might put the half inch strut spacer for the front, but I think it looks awesome....besides all the dirt on my truck.

    Built a platform out of 3/4” plywood today. All that’s left is to create some brackets to secure it to the seat bolts. I’m going to add D rings and carry a tote with all my spare fluids and parts back here. I want it very well secured so it stays put in case of an accident.

    Vibration problem solved! I had replaced my u-joints last September or so and have been living with a significant vibration problem ever since. The weather finally warmed up enough to work on it.

    Turns out all I had to do was to press out the middle u-joint and rotate the shaft 180 degrees. Whatever vibration was there has either gone away or has been neutralized. In either case, I'm a very happy camper!!
