    I refinanced it today. Going from 3.49% with 51 of 60 payments left @ $446 to $394/month at 1.99% in 48 months. Seems like a win to me. It will be paid off sooner with less interest.

    Oh man, I was looking into this solution although IDK...locally I can get them done for just abt $3k w/ 3yr/36k coverage. No knuckle bustin' and ease of service if needed. I've seen ppl say they've seen $1700-2200 and I'd already been done if that were the case.

    Bought this on Ebay, it came today.

    I'm going to use it to build a better mount for the scanner in my 2019 SR5.

    OMG thanks for the laugh. That was a good episode, also one of the other good ones was when Cramer test drove the Car I believe was a Saab too on an empty tank.

    How often do you detail your locomotive?

    Well done. I'm pretty happy with AA on my 2021 JBL system, but I wish I could do this divided screen. Seems you can only show one app at a time.

    Installed the sokietech no drill hood struts. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RW9YT4S?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

    Put on door sill protectors.
    Removed the bed stickers. Installed OEM tailgate lock. Had the fuel pump recall done, and they updated the ECU.

    The ECU flash is not mind blowing but it definitely helps make the truck more drivable. The gear changes are not as jarring and the pedal is more responsive. I had a dead spot around 25 mph that would take a lot of pedal movement to get it to continue to accelerate. So the truck would almost bog down going up a hill. That is almost gone/takes less input to get it moving. So happy with that.

    On a side note has anyone been able to retro fit the power drivers seat into the older models without that option? Had a 2021 loaner while the fuel pump was being done and that was the most noteable thing about the newer models.
    Edit: I linked the wrong hood struts, should be fixed now.

    Just for kicks I filled up with premium after the ECU flash, and got the best gas mileage the truck has ever seen. :notsure:

    It's actually new to us here in Allen, TX so it doesn't need a detail right now. Sucker is massive!

    About a 15% increase, but it may have coincidentally been the release of the summer blend gas. :notsure:

    @RyanDCLB Definitely not an insignificant increase! That said, that is about what I see with no mods/tunes between winter/summer.

    No extra parts needed except for the harness and head unit. Everything will screw back on and fit like OEM. You will have screws left over if you choose a non nav and need to flip the side brackets. No bending, or cutting of any sort.

    Just discovered my '17 has the TRD exhaust when I registered it on the app. Its a SR5 I bought used so a bit surprised to see that. Now I want to hear another 3rd gen crank/run that doesn't have it. I have always thought it had a bit of throaty sound but just assumed that was the standard exhaust note.

    Found it on Amazon. I don't know how to put a direct link from mobile via the Amazon app, so here's a screenshot.
