    Replaced my shift knob with one that hits me right in the feels every time I place my hand on it. It's a replacement shift knob for the 2013 Mazda3 that I had been driving, hooning, loving every moment of, for the last 8 years since I bought it brand new. It died when it got wrapped around a Nissan that didn't notice me when they decided to take a left turn in front of me while I was doing 50. The death of that car lead to the purchase of my Tacoma. One thing don't like about the Tacoma is the shift knob. I fixed it.

    I had to bore out the knob from 10mm to 12mm and tap it for M12x1.25 to get it to fit, but it already feels so much better in my hand and I believe it looks so much better than the more 'old baseball with threads ripped open' that the truck came with. .

    EDIT: After the first 24 hours with the new knob, it's absolutely lovely. It feels so much better in the palm than the BS OEM knob. It's weird that it actually feels like it shifts more smoothly. Totally worth it.

    Their TPMS won't work either. They refunded me. Not sure if you have TPMS though.

    Nice mod. Can you share some info with me? I noticed the lighting at night shines half way up the tailgate and this peaks my curiosity.

    This plate prevents the light from shining up so high, and reduces the glare in the back up camera

    Got them, and easily the best bang for buck mod I've seen in my life. Now that I've upgraded the bulbs to LED though, I'm thinking about getting some AF/AG paint for the bottom section of the housing because the lights are so bright that the light is now bank-shot'ing into the backup camera around the shields. I shudder to think about how bad it would be without the shields.

    Put in this center console vault that I picked up on eBay for less than $60. It’s made by Hooke Road. It’s not Ft Knox but it will do the job for what I’m looking for.

    Then it took a little persuading with the Dremel to make the console organizer to fit again.

    I was pleasantly surprised how the truck performed. Only advice I have is go to the visitor center to begin. They have a road conditions map that will tell you the current conditions. Also they sell a two dollar map which was vital when I did not have cell service the majority of the day. The visitor center was pretty nice ended up spending like $50 on gifts.

    The conditions can change based on time of the year I believe. The slot looked really cool. I just walked around. I was scared that my back end would be to tall for the SLOT so I decided against it. I took a big loop from old culp valley to jasper trail to grapevine canyon. got onto buttes mountain wash to the slot turned around went up palo verde wash crossed over to fonts wash. Ended up at Vista Del Malpais for sunset. This was a great view that I was an hour early for and decided to stay.

    Good luck!

    Hey!

    I grew up there. No hills higher than a car until the interstate came through! ;-)Overpasses were something entirely out of perspective. WTF are this things. I heard people call 'em HILLS.

    Ok, grill letters painted. I will have to wait till tomorrow to get a better idea of how it looks. This summer I need to take off the whole grill area and paint the core support black so you cant see it as well behind the grill.
