    I'm wondering if theres some sap residue still left maybe? Like it got spread around from when I wiped it off. I cant imagine rubbing alcohol doing that to it

    It’s hit or miss. There is a new (finished in early 2020) road that cuts my commute to work down by about 10 minutes. The new maps doesn’t have it.

    If I could find a reasonably priced head unit that has CarPlay/AA, I will be replacing the stock garbage. I just don’t see myself paying $1k for a new head unit solely for that feature.

    Well I feel like a dummy. wiped it down again with alcohol then some elbow grease with the window cleaning wipe and it seems to be resolved.

    You're not a dummy. Alcohol doesn't degrade glass. Ask any barkeep. It was likely sap. Good that it's gone.

    also, the display is definitely not updated. The only thing this really did was give me maps, and give storage space so I can access stuff like the maintenance app.

    Oof. If I didn't have AA I'd be looking at replacing that garbage no matter the cost with OEM or an aftermarket head unit. $1,000 is pretty steep though.

    Yea man… it is eventually coming, but I am going to figure out my suspension, wheels, tires, subwoofers, tonneau, and maybe even bumpers first. I will get AA, but it’s wayyyyyy down the priority list for me haha

    Spent an hour or so trying to troubleshoot why my bed lights aren't working. couldn't find any obvious loose/broken connections. pulled the ground and cleaned it and the frame around it. followed my wire from the lights to the battery as best as I could, couldn't find any breaks. gonna step back and think about it before I just go and pull everything out. Not the best way so spend time with my taco.

    In the cubby behind the passenger side rear seat. They fit surprisingly well there. If I need one or more I can just drop the seat and grab one to reinstall it.

    The kit from SDHQ comes complete with a new crimp connector for the main ground wire. You will need the SDHQ body ground wire (https://sdhqoffroad.com/products/05...-6ga-negative-battery-to-body-16-ground-cable) or you can build one yourself. I had one from a previous project with the correct diameter connections, all be it just a little bit long.

    The process is a 2 beer project (only because I really like beer).
