    Finally installed the bumper lights. Pain in the butt to drop the bumper but I had to do it. They aren’t wired up yet but it’s progress

    It's his equipment he uses to do Tune Updates. The other half is a Laptop connected to the terminal under the steering wheel.

    I just stand by and wait for him to say, "Take it for test drive".

    I used these to remove pin strips/factory stickers on previous vehicles. works really nice, doesn't scratch the paint. I was able to use it to get the heavier sticky spots to one big one... https://www.amazon.com/Plastic-Clea...626609&sprefix=pastic+ra,aps,182&sr=8-1-spons

    Ordered the 27F AGM battery from X2/Batteries+, and a 2nd gen 27F tray.

    AUTO20 = 20% off
    https://www.batteriesplus.com/productdetails/sli27fagmdp

    The OEM battery from Feb 2019 is starting to corrode. It can be cleaned, but I've been counting down the days to return to an AGM battery.

    I'll pick up a battery tender down the road to juice it up for maintenance. I just can't justify the OVTune just for this single need.

    The KTJO4x4 grab handle V2-PKTCMGRAB-C0 came in. Ordered Friday night, shipped out Monday afternoon. All parts accounted for and no cosmetic damage.

    With V2, the lower fastener changed from an M6 clip nut to a tiny M3 (?) rivnut, and KTJO4x4 includes a ratcheting cinch gun. The screw seemed too small, so I left the old clip nut in place and used the M6 grab handle screw from my previous 2nd gen, P/N 90159-A0047.



    Installation with the deep-set bosses and short screws is indeed easier than V1. I found a shallow 10mm socket with 3" long 1/4" drive extension was handy for the lower screw. Fitment of the screw covers is flush and tighter than V1.

    Didn’t do anything to my Taco ‘cause I’m away. But I spotted this cool Taco/Hilux in Barbados

    Snapped a pic on the way out of the Allegheny NF after a spontaneous overnight camp. Did a little kayaking, and some exploring of forest roads. Slept like crap but overall a nice reset.

    I'd skip modern Optima. The brand has been low-balled as far as QA and components after company purchase, in order to extract maximum value for the new owners.

    I removed my 3 year old Dakar HD's and threw my stock leafs back on. I also replaced the 5160's with some 4600's. I lost 3" of lift in the rear lol. Didn't get to the front today, but should tomorrow.

    Plan is to swap 4600's all around, replace the pads and rotors, and install air bags in the rear. Oh, and swap my 255's to some 265's.

    Truck is cali squatting right now and I don't see how people chose the style, it's not for me. Losing 3" on my truck makes it feel like a Maverick now.

    No.

    Reason for going back to "stockish", just kind of miss the way my truck was before I "improved" it.

    So far I’m happy with it. Time will tell. It was a tad faded and used 303 protectant on it and it looks better. Will see how this works. Not bad for $200.

    That’s why only went with the 3 leaf progressive AAL. I think keeping it as close to stock height as possible is the way to go (2 inch lift). The lower center of gravity and prowess of the off-road is pretty much all is needed in most situations. A stock off-road will surprise most people in its capabilities IMHO. :cheers:
