    Made the final payment today on my 2014 4 cyl. access cab. Woo-hoo!!! It's the best vehicle I ever purchased.

    To celebrate, I'm gonna give my truck a gift -- a new head unit scheduled to be installed on Monday.

    Rear cam had some schmutz on it and you only get one shot to park before incoming traffic starts getting impatient. I actually bonked the rear wall a bit, but no damage. The corners are free form parking in our garage, so no one cares. I should take a photo of the F150 who parked on the other side of the garage. His truck is 45 degrees to the parking spot. Looks ridiculous but funny.

    You can use your mirrors too.. much faster and more reliable than camera. Try it.

    I have a spare set of BD Squadron Sports (UTV) with wiring harness in amber I've been trying to find a purpose for. Already have BD Sports for fogs and BD 20" S8 for flood. May sell if I can't work them into my build.

    Mirrors are so 1990's ;)

    Generally, I just keep going back until I hear a crunch.

    How do you like the amber for fogs? I have clear wide cornering right now and am thinking of going amber.

    They do much better on the trail in heavy dust than clears. I haven't been through any snow or fog with them.

    Used it to drag this POS back to my place to change the timing belt again. 20191108_115357.jpg
    The o-rings on the fuel rail were leaking and while trying to change them the belt jumped cam teeth. Then I noticed it was about to break anyway.20191107_125518.jpg
    It got almost 40k since the last belt change.

    I HATE Kia more than anything.

    My wife had a Sorento that she took immaculate care of. Had constant cooling system issues before 100k. I don't remember the mileage when we got rid of it for a 4Runner, but I remember thinking it was low for the amount of problems that we had.

    This is mil's. Fil has a 06 Sorrento that had cooling issues. All the plastic hose pieces behind the engine have been replaced with brass, because I was tired of changing them all the time. When the warranty runs out get rid of your Kia. It ain't worth it to pay to repair everything.
