    Stock wheels and suspension. Random "utilitarian" mods featured on this great forum.
    Set my man-card on fire and made these so that the kiddos aren't grabbing at air while trying to get in. Also because I'm too cheap to buy tube steps or sliders or pay some Jeep site for a pair.

    Wish the taco came with hard plastic backs so their muddy shoes wouldn't leave mud prints everywhere. What I have on there now helps.

    I wish I could find some plugs or low profile black machine screws for the unused holes!

    I'm not sure how big those holes are, but you might try something like these push pins.

    Installed bilstein 5100’s all around and spider trax 1.25” spacers today. Really happy with the mild lift and the stance now.

    Really needed an air compressor for a small job yesterday and then I remembered seeing this on here, fits behind the rear seat on driver side, been meaning to get one so I pulled the trigger.

    Today I scored a sweet deal on 5 used Falken Wildpeak at3’s for $225. They had 9/32 tread left so I had to pull the trigger on them! They’re 265/75/16 and now my 2/1.5” lifted taco finally looks more proportionate. Glad to say I finally feel satisfied for a while but who knows what comes my way next for the taco build ;)

    Installed OEM bed rail that should have came with the truck. I saw someone post about it and thought why not for $40. Only took me 10 minutes reusing existing bolts if anyone wants to do it. I included the part number. You can also buy the end caps for $25 but I didn’t since it didn’t bother me.

    Did a major screw-up today.

    I was doing an oil change, tire rotation and general check-up today. After checking for any leaks, I started buttoning things back up.

    I then noticed that I had not fully tightened down the right front lugs nuts, so I foolishly placed that jack back under the front cross member just behind the oil drain plug.

    Halfway up, I heard a thunk - the jack saddle had slipped off the cross member and smashed directed into the oil pan right where the Fumoto drain valve was located. Of course, it bent the valve and pan and oil started flowing out.

    Called a local dealer to order an oil pan but I am just not sure I want to mess with it. Looks easy enough to access, but I just don't know.

    Probably will have it towed in tomorrow and let them handle it. I am starting to loose faith in my wrenching abilities.

    I am very angry at myself right now........:facepalm:
