    Honestly my truck has become a parking lot princess over the years:anonymous:

    so my main concern is if the temps would get hot when I'm idling over those big parking lot bumpers...or sitting in my truck soaking up some A/C waiting on my wife whose in shopping around the mall.

    :crapstorm:

    although here in Louisiana the walmart parking lot can get some pretty serious water. not even joking. i'm talking 8-10" of water and stalled cars everywhere

    i just like the idea of clean air ok.

    I get it. I'm in Ohio. We get temp spikes not unlike when I lived in Florida. A lot less frequently, but yea.

    I don't think you're going to see a noticeable problem... but I'm also not a doctor.

    Popped in the new rear Rockford Fosgate speakers, easy peasy. The sound is (unsurprisingly) better than stock for sure lol. If I decide to keep the truck, I'll have to throw some in the front for sure. I love how easy the rear door panels were to remove on this truck.

    Put in the kid's new "big boy" car seat too

    After over a year and a half, I finally fixed my rear-view. I bought a pigtail from Bob's Mirrors, along with a new mirror, and I've been living with it showing scrambled skinemax images since I wired it in. I finally went out today and figured out how to reverse engineer the pins on the pigtail (I lost the initial pin diagram) based on an email exchange we'd shared in November 2019 (COVID really just took this entirely off my radar).

    So as of today, I finally have a backup camera that I can actually see.

    I found an old picture of what it looked like. So dumb.

    I replaced my SPC upper ball joints. The passenger side had a bunch of vertical slop! I have 103,000 miles on them; but I think it’s been bad for quite a while. There was a mystery clunk that I thought was just some of my gear in the bed. Turns out it was that ball joint - yikes!

    I installed the upgraded 25001 joints.

    That's too many six's. Now if it was 666... I would have parked it, left the keys and walked away forever. On the other hand, 666.6 might be more evil. :notsure:

    Replaced the fuel pump for the 3rd time. Hopefully the revised version of the Delphi fuel pump will be better. Really thinking about adding a trap door in the floor of my DCSB.

    Looks like you're a prime candidate to join the "just needs a fuel pump" group on Facebook. All they do there is cut access panels on truck beds lol

    Do you tend to drive until you are running on fumes? An empty tank will damage fuel pumps. I usually fill at a half tank, but that's probably overkill.

    I have a double cab short bed. I think I'd have to cut the actual floor of the truck

    My new pump that was only 1 month old started making a horrible noise. Dealer said the pump is going out. I never run on fumes. The original pump was 10 yrs old. Last two lasted months

    Well then I guess it's not an overheated pump. Scratch that reason off the list.

    Sorry to hear this. My son just cut a trap door in his 3rd Gen 4Runner for an easy change out. Worked out well. I could not see him (us) dropping the fuel tank.
