Oedro Running Boards, Akkon LED Projection Headlights, Akkon Rear Tail Lights, Falken Wildpeaks.
    Late night/early morning thought (had another quick stint in the hospital tonight and just got released) what do you think of Mass Loaded Vinyl? I have a decent amount from a roll left and hadn't even thought of it. I'm hoping that if I create a sandwich of CCF/MLV/Kevlar Fabric, the combination would remove sound and absorb blows better than any rigid plastics.

    Do you just place the jack where the stock front jack location was?

    The RCI front slider has a spot intended for that, but i also will just put the jack @ the bolt holes since that is where they attach to the frame. Because my truck is lifted a bit, I use a piece of 2x6, or 4x4 between the jack and the slider as a spacer.

    Changed the front/rear dif oil, as well as the transfer case oil. Drained and filled the transmission and flushed the power steering fluid. What a pain in the ass with full skidsIMG_6506.jpg

    Yesterday I got the bedrack installed and ordered new hardware for my tent. Also gave the interior a much needed and overdo cleaning. On this topic, I recently bought a Shark brand car vac. It did ok, but not sure if it was worth the price to not have to drag the shopvac out of the basement.
    Today was new wipers and a nice drive to Bass Pro. Took the long way home and stopped for a glamor shot.
    Tonight I'm downloading the manual for the Switchpros setup that arrived this past week and hopefully will get installed one evening next week.

    Oil change. Pulled plug and covered with finger to install Fumoto valve. 8" of hose into a 2 gal gas can. No more splashing of oil into a drain pan. What was I waiting for?:confused:
    Power steering fluid change. 8 yrs and 48k. Took 2 quarts Valvoline ATF to come out clear.
    Got all 5 drive line zerks greased. Wish I had a friend with a lift.:thumbsup:

    Drove on a road I had seen from a train like 5 years ago and always wondered if I'd ever find it. I found myself on it entirely randomly today.

    I changed my plugs after 30k on them. I’m about to hit 90,000 miles in a few days!

    Then I cleaned the engine bay and I need to do the other fluids next…

    New wheels and tires. 285/70r17 Falken Wildpeaks on 4Runner off-road wheels. Happy with the results.

    Today I just drove it around to the various beach parking lots near the house.



    Over the course of the last week or so I also did a head-unit install and got my front plate mounted.

    For the head-unit I used a Pioneer AVH-2440NEX from my sister's 1995 Camry that just started knocking. I was able to use the same METRA 70-1761 from the Camry but I chopped up its previously ugly install and re-wired it all. Then I added a BATIGE Single Port USB 3.0 flush-mounted into the old cigarette lighter port for USB integration and opted to use a FingerLakes 2.5mm microphone mounted on the steering column rather than the old and tired Pioneer mic with a busted mounting platform. It's off-center which pisses me off but I installed it all in the dark after a pretty long day because I'm an idiot. Then it's all housed and held together by a METRA 99-2814G Dash Kit.

    Final Product:

    BATIGE USB:

    FingerLakes Mic:

    Re-Wired Harness:


    I was also able to get my front plated mounted with an @ACEkraut low profile LM-0511 mount. Great communication from him and super easy install. Just like my head-unit mic, it's a little crooked right now but that was operator error on my part and I will fix it someday... Probably. Also threw on WeatherTech Clear Covers on my plates in a color they call Beluga Gray.

    Front/Offset Look:

    Those plugs didn’t need changing. I would have put them back in after pulling the first one

    Sorry......Skid.
    This is the RCI designated jack point, but as I said, I will also line up with the bolts since that attach to the front cross member.20230409_081400.jpg
