    nice unit, getting used to CarPlay. Old guy who owned this must’ve never listened to the radio over 25% volume because these old speakers sound pretty decent to my old car-audio-addict ear.

    will probably only add one of those new fancy powered under seat sub boxes to add a tiny bit of bump.

    I like them a lot, on the pricey side but output is good and I got tired of having the spyders like everyone else

    Slowly but surely coming together. New JBA UCAs (edit: holy shit the bolts are a pain in the ass to install by yourself with all the washers) with OME Nitochargers and 886 springs bought off here from another member. Don’t have a front bumper installed yet so we’ll see how rough the ride is.

    Also looks like I’m going to have to take a trip to a brake shop to get mine bled, pretty sure air got in the ABS when I changed out the front and rear hard lines, rubber lines, and calipers. Oh well!

    PS if anyone wants TRD OR front and rear suspension including leaf springs for free let me know or else it’s going out for scrap. Located in SE Michigan...I’m gonna make a garage sale thread with more stuff soon

    Just an oil change today, and shook down the front end for good measure. I’d say the catch can has earned its keep. Pretty religious 5k intervals with Mobil 1 since 1k miles (95k now) and the can has been on since that first change, I should run a bore scope to see if it’s as clean internally as I think it is lol

    Vinyl wrapped my steering wheel emblem, but didn't like how it turned out so I peeled it off.......along with the chrome underneath:annoyed::bananadead::frusty:.
    Now I'm gonna paint it, but I'm gonna try to do it without removing it. From what I've read you gotta glue it back in place, and im not sure I'm comfortable with that becoming a projectile if airbag deploys. Any tips?

    Purchased a Mobicool MCF40 from Amazon. Pretty happy with it being a “budget fridge”. Its made by Dometic, cost half the price and works amazing. It ran off a Jackery 240 for over 20 hours set at 27*f. Would recommend for anyone looking for a quality fridge for a fair price!

    Just rolled over 100k at the top of Stevens Pass, WA! Headed home for the big 100k maintenance day. Spark plugs, coolant flush, power steering flush, lube chassis, oil change/filter, air filter replacement, MAF sensor cleaning, serpentine belt replacement, re-torque suspension, and possibly lower ball joint replacement.

    Interested in hearing how the 888's are on a second gen. I know they lowered the "final lift" numbers on all their springs because most of them sag. I am down about 2" from install on my 887's (4ish total down to 2.5" ish lift) after alignment, settling, and adding full skids. Didnt know 888's were even an option on the 2nd gens thought they were a 3rd gen only thing since they get a bit more height.
