    Headlights are on with a ditch light lens switc to amber combo beam.

    also stopped by @runnin4tacos to switch tune profiles to the 91 octane performance tune.

    Initial impressions:
    1. like the standard 85 octane tune, this one feels seamless yet more go.
    2. I’m averaging 15mpg with full accessory weight (suspension, wheels/tires, racks, RTT, accessories, and a bike rack on the hitch).
    3. The biggest thing I like is that it is definitely better in the mountains. Upshifts quick to pick up speed then downshifts quick to maintain it.
    4. With the OEM tune, the truck was always searching for gears and would struggle to get out of third or would shift to fourth but immediately lose oomph and drop back into third while simultaneously letting every passenger know with a noticeable jerk.
    5. With the 85 standard tune, MPGs went up by 2 and it was better performing in the mountains for sure but could barely get above 65mph on the steeper inclines and couldn’t pull away.
    6. With the 91 performance tune, everything is improved. Truck pulls away on the inclines and acceleration/shifting is more responsive and smoother. MPG improvement has only been 1 over stock (minus one versus 85 tune). But then again, I have been driving it a bit more aggressively to get it up over those passes. Also, the fuel cost for 91 octane is considerable.
    Overall the 91 tune is best for me in the mountains. I think I’ll keep it for awhile to really get used to it. Will also consider new gears. No matter what tune profile I have on there, 6th is pretty much worthless as I assume you have to going 90+ I order to shift into it.

    Here in Minnesota I pay $400 for my tabs, every year. But it does go down gradually as the vehicle loses value, my wife's Mazda 3 is down to $300/year and it's 3 years old.

    Stock Suspension nothing fancy. CB and HAM Radio Mods.
    Had the fuel pump replaced via recall. Gives me some more confidence being off grid.

    Yessir. Got the MX Pro. XR, if I remember correct is the automatic retractable. Mine is the Aluminum cover with the TSlot Rack Rails, Looking for an adjustable rack like the Yakima.

    Changed a tire!

    Found out that the stock tires that say “Kevlar” lose in a battle against TN creek shale.

    Also, the rim was really, really hard to get off once jacked up. I had to smack the sidewall of the tire hard from the underside with the back of an axe. I put that boulder there in case me swinging the axe at the tire knocked the truck off the jack (I had truck resting weight on the boulder).

    Anyone else have issues with rims seizing up against the rear drums? 27k miles, one winter up north.

    No pics.. shackles and treesavers and pulleys came in today and they got put into the truck. I count that in 'added recovery gear'. Also I installed the rigid fogs into the bumper a few weeks ago - I like DOT pattern (even if the placing isn't spot on).

    Oh yeah, the stock tires are poop. I lost my original set hitting some rocks on the highway at 50mph or so.

    You were smart with the placement of those boulders though. I guess we know what your next mod is :spending:

    I just finished vacuuming the floors on the trucks. Had a lot of dirt underneath my floor mats because of my job site and we just happened to buy a new one. So I got to break it in. Also rinsed and cleaned the rubber floor mats. Sprayed some mango air freshener inside and letting it simmer.

    Can't use the Rok Blok. I park on the street pointed downhill and when I drive to the bottom of the hill after a rain and do a u-ey, I have all that water pouring out.
