    Ordered some Sylvania XtraVision headlight bulbs for the truck. Should be here tomorrow.
    I'm content with the stock headlights so this should be a decent upgrade. Plus, whenever I get the funds to install a winch bumper, I'll also be installing a light bar so night driving on trails won't be an issue.

    Your truck looks tiny next to that silver Ford.

    Upon further inspection, I believe you're right. The tail lights just say "Ford" to me.

    Martin off-road racks are basically the same thing but cheaper so give those a look. I liked it though, super functional.

    I've been working on adapting https://gfxgauge.com/ (which I started working on a few years ago for my STI) for use in my Tacoma. Here’s where it’s at as of today:

    D6BDDB67-D119-42E7-8E02-6788499828B5.jpg

    The standard OBD-II PIDs work, but I’ve been unsuccessful in getting the ECU to return transmission temp values using any of the custom PID codes I’ve found so far. I’ve read that some people have issues getting it to work on other devices (ScanGauge etc.) so I’m not sure if the problem is with my truck or gfxgauge, but I’m going to keep trying!

    Installed a 1” Toytec body lift to make room for my AWD FJ cruiser transfer case and Northwest Fab crawl box. Sealed that all up last night so it’s ready to test fit in the truck now

    Came up with a quick solution to take care of the rear bumper gap using some 1” aluminum spacers and longer bolts.

    Still in planning phase ...
    Finally able to get Rugged Trails/Baja wheels I picked up awhile back to powder coaters and picked them back up today. Previously painted cement gray and one bought off member here that was kinda beat up, had them redone in flat black. Will get them on soon as I can.
