    Ford plant in Louisville has brand new Ford trucks filling every parking lot they can find, to include as far away as Fort Knox with new vehicles and no chips for the keys primarily, rendering them unsellable until they do. I also read they are shutting down production for awhile, because they have no place else to park them until the chip shortage is resolved.

    Did you powder coat the wheels? They look great!

    Just picked up my new taco on the 19th. I got both keys with mine. Guess I'll count myself lucky.

    Hey y’all, I saw these little mountable lights today and am curious if they would be worth a shi#. Got good reviews and I wouldn’t be upset if they shi# the bed and I just throw em out. Also what else would I even need to mount these by the front windshield

    Ditch light brackets. Check with Rago fabrication.

    Just looked and the same company has a mounting bracket for the hood. Might give em a shot, 2x 6.5” ditches for <50 seems like a decent gamble lol

    I'd be skeptical of those reviews:

    The ditch light brackets on Amazon are decent but I would give them an extra coat of paint or Line-X like I did.

    The compressor is in the standard engine bay spot on a Slee Offroad mount.

    Install is a long video because I ran the power switch to the overhead console into a Meso overhead switch panel.

    I installed LEDs from Diode Dynamics inside and on the license plate and they are perfect. I had heard of some folks blowing fuses with cheaper options, particularly with the dome light, so I didn't want to risk the Amazon options. I didn't want blinding brightness, just modern whiteness instead of the egg-yolk halogens. I went with their middle of the road brightness; cool white (6000k, 16 lumens vanity, 56 lumens map, 130 lumens dome) inside and pure white (5000k, 56 lumens) on the license plate, as I didn't want to look like a shitty Civic with a fart can outside or wash out my backup camera.

    Noice! I just got a UPS tracking number for my VFTuner on Friday, so it looks like I'll be about a week behind you on my KDMAX 6.0. Can't wait.

    I’m only about 75 miles in but I’m serious, it’s an immediately noticeable improvement. I have a MT, imagine my surprise when first gear is actually useful!
