    Looks great! What suspension set up are you running? Did you have to do a CMC or was the viper cut enough? Any more pics?

    Looks sick, used to do the same on my old Honda Accord. FWIW, I got pulled multiple times on my way home from work for having those same lights (red, green, orange and blue). Cop said I was impersonating an emergency vehicle... mkay scrooge.

    Switched to just red and green and never had another run in... Just be ready for that conversation :rolleyes:

    None to speak of, just enjoying it for the moment.
    GEICO tried to jack mine way up and after 32 years with them I don't think they thought I would leave, Well they were wrong! I did now I use USAA much better. Switched my homeowners insurance at the same time from Allstate to USAA as well.

    I seem to recall a thread about something squeaking around the front right hand tweeter, it was tight on the windshield side, I believe it was the grill for the speaker or something.

    They need to add an "I dont care if it takes me a little longer to get there, just keep me moving and out of stop-and-go traffic" option

    sounds like they are trying to pass the Buck. If your dash was fine when you “took” it in, it should be fine when you “take” it out..

    Finally got my retro TRD shift knob in I ordered on Etsy. It took a while as it came from a seller in Lithuania. Been in customs since 27 Oct. Ordered 15 Oct. Quality looks and feels pretty good. Stich work as well. Installed easy. It feels like the insert is plastic or polymer. I tightened it down pretty good. Went one turn past just snug as I felt that was plenty. It doesn't turn freely even with a hard grab and shift of the knob. I also installed the matte black trim piece below the shifter to cover up the chrome, but it is also needed because the chrome trim has tabs that attach to the OEM shift knob. This black trim piece clips over the chrome and gives the aftermarket knob a better fit and finished look. That piece was for sale on Etsy as well. 3D printed piece. Seller did a good job on it as well.

    My last truck had a hula girl super glued to the dash but I wanted something new. I got a figurine moose, but my dog ate it before I could get it mounted.

    Ended up with this friendly guy. Swings through every bump.

    Installed a gas cap holder today that should have been there from the factory, just one of many things that should have been huh? Oh well they fill some addiction that apparently happens when you first bring your bundle of joy into your life.IMG_3345.jpg

    My Tacoma Lifestyle 3rd brake light arrived in the mail today. This job has had me intimidated because of the headliner. But I did find a YT video where the guy took off the side hook and it gave more room by allowing the headliner to drop down further. So I plan to tackle that this weekend. After watching that video a few more times.

    On another note, I purchased my first set of Michelin light truck tires, and not happy with the amount of lead they used to balance it. I felt it immediately, and had them rebalance it, and they put it in the rear. I could feel it every now and then, upon rotation, it’s more noticeable up front. I think they used 4 ounces or more.
    Is this typical Michelin quality? I’m going to contact them on Facebook, and share my thoughts.

    The drawback of the midsize is that the gas cannisters were too large to mount on the sidebar. I am sure I could have found a way to get it done but went a different route and mounted them underneath the tent. I actually like this alternative since it will make it much more difficult for anyone to mess with them and the cannisters will not be subjected to direct sunlight. They also do not block very much of the view from the rearview mirror.

    30 years with USAA and not a single ticket or accident. In the last five or so years, rates have nearly doubled. $2,400 a year on a new Taco and a new Crosstrek.
    :annoyed:
    I think this is getting to be like the cable/phone companies - keep raising the rates on the ‘loyal’ customers and offer the lowest rates to attract ‘new’ customers.

    OK - on to the ‘What have you done’ side of things, I got the Stant 10504 locking gas cap from O’Reillys (without the ‘S’) and I’ve gone through a couple tankfuls with no issues. Hopefully, no one at Central Services finds out about my mod. I might have to drive my other vehicle.

    We've had multiple sets of Michelins on various vehicles over the years (although I'm running Toyo AT III on the Tacoma). I cannot recall any that took a lot of weight to balance even on some pretty hefty wheels. Is that only on one wheel? It's possible there's an issue with the wheel and you could try having them move the offending tire to another wheel and see how it goes. But if the problem follows the tire, and if your old tire(s) didn't require that much weight, I'd say that it's a manufacturer defect. It happens. That's what warranties are for. If you bought them from Discount Tire they'll replace it no questions asked. If not, I'd press the seller for a replacement under warranty.

    My $.02.
