    Looking over EWD's adapting this harness to fit my truck (truck is a 2012, harness is a 2014).
    Taking a break from time to time and wiring my Bussmann RFRM, 50% done with that.
    Also in the process of labeling each connector so I can print it out so I don't have to keep getting up and checking the computer

    I use 303 on mine. Just spray it on a rag and wipe them down. I do it 2 or 3 times a year.

    Just got my oil changed and new filter. Lookd like something was living in there with all the debris that was there. First oil change since I got it. Seems to breathe better with the new air filter.

    That's the point. Hopefully it works and I won't have to look at it. ;)

    Taking a break from the Bussmann wiring (need 10 ga. wire, and fuses) and looking over the dash harness and what I need to buy.

    Here's a small tip.
    When your checking a wire harness with a multi-meter, make sure the multi-meter is on. :oops:

    Checked the new 2014 dash harness against my 2012 EWD and there is one wire I need to move. It's in a connector and I need to remove it and it goes right to the ECM.

    doopity doo.. gettin places..
    Ordered some Deaver Exped Stage 3s the other day from @HeadStrong Off-Road. They had them in stock which I wasn’t expecting. I was getting ready for some mid spring upgrades so I guess now I am doing some frozen knuckle mid-January upgrades…

    Checked in with Dynatrac on a D60 axle assembly and due to supply chain stuff they are looking at possible 6 month lead time as opposed to the 6 week* lead time from a year ago :eek:

    Got my 12-15 mirrors installed and wired. The signals don't work but I have a lead that it might be a bad ground. They still look good and I gained a folding mirror feature so that's nice.

    so will this get rid of the squeaks that i have all around my truck from the movement?

    i get these squeaks from my doors that are super annoying. they aren't loud but to me, i notice everything. the doors will squeak with movement of the cab, but if i pull the door even tighter while driving, it goes away.
    i did apply regular wax to the inside of the doors and that didn't help. maybe i should try the silicone spray.

    I added a bolt once...
    Did front, rear differential and transfer case 75w-90 fluids today, 2014 DCSB with 60k. Also did the wife's RAV4 rear diff and transfer case.
    Synthetic out and in on both rigs. 30k did nothing to discolor these except the diff on the 2014 Tacoma... which, still looked acceptable.

    The pavement princess rides on.
