    Honestly, I really like the look of the truck in the “before” pic too. It just looks silly with chrome now. Let me find a pic from before the dip.....

    Took more than a day, but finally finished up stuffing a VR10 I picked up from @sidetracked into the ARB. Rewired the control pack and mounted it in the engine bay up near ABS. Found a nice offset hawse fairlead for ARBs at Custom Splice and a cheap flip-up plate holder on Amazon.

    Was looking down in the mentioned products at the bottom of the thread and saw this: Bafx Products - Wireless Bluetooth OBD2 / OBDII Diagnostic Car Scanner & Reader Tool for Android Devices - Read/Clear Your Check Engine Light & Much More
    I have one of these that was given to me a while back, never been able to use it because i din't have an android phone. Anybody used one? how does it work?

    It a pretty cool tool. You plug it into any OBD2 port and download the bafx bluetooth obd2 scan tool on your android device and it will display the error codes, and other info about your car/truck.

    The guy who gave it to me said he used it to record stuff like 0-60 times as well. Wish it worked with apple.

    That’s not a valet key, That’s just a copy to open doors. What’s the point of giving that key to a valet if they can’t move the vehicle.

    A true valet key will only open doors and start vehicle, will not open glove box, trunk etc.

    Works great. Standard Yakima bar set up over the cab and fender tie down loops. And of course the Hitch canoe loader/T bar. Solid as a rock. Allows access to all your shit right there in the bed under a locking tonneau.

    editing to add: that’s a 17’ canoe. A 13’ kayak won’t have this spread. You could use the rear bar placement on the cab, which would be nearly three feet closer to the tail gate...but still may not leave you much to hold onto. Guesstimating that would leave your mount points approx 8 ft apart.

    Valet keys lock and unlock doors and start engines. They don't give access to locked glove boxes and trunks. That way a valet can get in, move the vehicle, and lock the vehicle.

    $850 to powdercoat wheels is ridiculous. Multi-color? Pearl? That's crazy high.

    There are plenty of similar devices on Amazon that work with Apple devices. I recommend doing searches on both the Apple App store and Amazon to ensure the app works with that particular device. I think I looked through the app store for the app I wanted to use, then found the latest version of a device on Amazon that worked with that app.
