    Bunch of Basic Taco mods.
    Pulled the driver side back seat, yanked the plastic cubby, cut off the mounting tabs, dynamatted the entire area, and got the back seat back in just in time for another Gulf Coast afternoon shower. Mr Marv box on track to deliver tomorrow, figured I’d get the truck prepped while I had a break in this ceaseless rain.

    As a FedEx delivery driver I can say I see it happen all the time tires get split up @ the hub or left behind cuz it wouldn't fit in the truck so they probably got separated same way

    Replaced front brake pads with pad set 04465-04070, Shim kit 04945-0C030, 2 pin holds 47743-04093 and an Anti-rattle clip set 04947-0C010. I believe these are the semi-metallic pads, i think the other option (04465AZ200) is ceramic. This is the first break job since owning the truck, I bought it used, I believe the pads I pulled off were probably the ceramics, as they were stamped Toyota, but had different ADVICS part numbers (V6063-FF in the top right corner and 37331 bottom middle of the back plate) Also whoever replaced the pads prior had only partial shims on it, not sure if that’s all they had or didn’t push back the pistons enough to fit the pads on with the complete shim pack. So far happy with the braking. In the 30 years DIY maintenance on cars and trucks, probably the easiest pad replacement.

    Also replaced the burned out headlight high/low beam bulbs with Sylvania SilverStar 9003, haven’t had a chance to try them out yet.

    Reattached the temperature sensor wires going to my "Bob's mirrors" mirror.
    I crimped them when I installed the mirror but upon removing the Ultra Gauge, the wires pulled out of the crimp.
    I used uninsulated crimps this time with heat shrink.

    Put the correct bolt in that holds my brake lines to the frame. I removed the bolt (to install a transfer case skid plate), threw it in the bed and thought I lost it until I swept out the bed and there it was.

    You should've done the dual anti-rattle clip mod.

    I bought extra anti rattle clips when I was buying other parts and haven't put them on yet. Even though I had my wheels off last week for a rotation, I forgot to bring the parts with me.

    Much appreciated. It's a cheaper cam (comes with front and rear) I got on Amazon by Apeman (would post the link but it seems Amazon took it down), but it has come in handy twice already (got hit from behind a few months ago - very lucky year for me - truck also got broken into between these events). It was 11 pm and on a dark road, so I wasn't able to make out plate details from the cam. Given how they pulled out, their plate was only visible for a split second. I was hoping the PD would be able to freeze frame it and clear it up a bit. Really makes you appreciate how much money, work, and time you put into your truck. All of it could be gone in a split second.
