    So two of my shops had nitrogen machines. The filters cost (at the time) $350.00. They lasted about 45 days if I remember. Every time I asked the boss to replace the filters, he told me to go fuck myself. Our typical nitrogen install was about 48% nitrogen. This would do nothing for the common man's truck or car, and was as profitable to the shop as a alignment machine. The argument is based on science but reality says it's the shop foreman looking to save money. Smoke and mirrors.
    Simple tire maintenance will solve this problem.
    Save your money and buy one of those gas cap hanger thingy's so it won't hang down the side of your truck.

    Installed URD Power Extractor Pipes and flashed the tune. Butt Dino thinks it opened up past 4000rpm and the sound with stock exhaust is just right.

    Nice plate! Now if yall could convince your DL bureau to change up your MN DLs. A letter and a host of numbers are a PITA to run in NCIC. Florida (le sigh) is just as bad.

    Washington state, I got issues with y'all too. First few letters of your last name, a few numbers, and then then your last first and middle name initials.

    And Missouri and Indiana, your PLATES are the worst to run!!! A police officer and dispatcher will tell y'all are a nightmare.

    Lol, yeah our DL numbers are fucked. I got one of the first when they changed the numbers to the new format 20 some years ago. So mine starts with a A00000.

    Let me know how if that license plate bracket works out. Had something similar but kept catching the winch line on the license plate so I had to modify it.

    Since we sold the RTT and bought a trailer, I decided to keep the bed rack on and make our storage bin more accessible than using the roof rack.

    Cut some 1" square aluminum to size and mounted to rack, then it's an easy attachment of the bin to the bars.

    Maybe it doesn't belong on an SR5 but I think the tri-colour badge adds a little flair to the front .

    Blue is great, but you don’t want a black and blue truck. All beat up. I had blue emblems here and there to compliment the cement color. But now it’s all black and cement. It looks way cleaner. The blue emblems, sell them.

    Custom ballast mounts (don’t think ive seen this done before). At least not like this- no 3m/no drill/clean and out of the way.

    I’ve had these mounts for close to 2 yrs now just too lazy to get it finished but since my headlights were warranty/replaced, I removed my setup prior. Still need to install passenger side but it’s exactly the same (mirrored)

    anyone interested in more photos or a parts list? pretty sure all 3rd gens have this spot available and it doesn’t have to be for a ballast. What about @Mr.PowerTrays, Something you could refine/polish up?
