    Last night I replaced my spark plugs for the first time at 90,000 miles. The Densos' gaps were all 0.055 and the NGKs' gaps were all 0.060. Installed new Densos plugs gapped to 0.041, installed new Intake Air Filter, Cabin Air Filter, and changed the oil and filter with Mobil 1 5W-30 and M1-102 Oil Filter.

    Ha! just saw this. It's a custom made bumper. Some guy out in California made it, but I don't think he still builds them. I got it second hand for a screaming deal. Works great!

    Same as everybody else...
    Got the plugs replaced at the dealership today. Something I planned on doing myself until I jacked up my back. I supplied the plugs so it wasn't too expensive. Regardless, they needed replaced. Here's a pic of the old, three had that burnt look, anyone know why?1014161341.jpg

    Every time I go the the car wash, I notice wet spots on the passenger floor mat. Water is getting in through the AC blower motor. Does anyone know what causes this or how to fix it?

    You did yours right, I bought a 3 inch magnaflow muffler and adapted it to fit the current pipe, but I welded on the muffler and then the extension. It sucks having most the muffler under the cab.

    That looks like the same kit I am installing tomorrow. Did you put yours under the factory cloth? Any tips or gotchas that you want to share?

    Took my truck in for a foreign object in rear tire(actually looks like a damn hex key), hole is too big to be plugged, so I'm currently waiting for a new pair of tires to be installed. My wallet is not happy.

    Sweet! I have to get some of those. My vision is for crap and pulling fuses on the Taco is just plain frustrating.
    Thanks!

    EDIT - How do you find these in the US? No one seems to sell them outside the UK
