    New Wheels and tires today!!! Nomad Convoy Utility gray with some BF Goodrich Trail Terrain T/A in 265/70/17. No rubbing so far, but driving around with the window open right now is problematic due to the fact its 10 degrees. Getting some black acorn style lug nuts, they sent them the wrong ones, so the chrome are temporary. I like them a lot, but I will say they are a lot darker than what's on their website. The tires do ride nice though!

    I called such a choice OCD, but ... use the dark color as a start for "grey out" the chrome ... and remove the bed-side sticker.

    Between that and the tailgate debacle I'd consider moving or finding a garage.

    There's a few options available through Amazon and elsewhere. This is the most common hardware for the main bracket bolts. It was originally designed or intended to prevent road sign theft. Not sure of the Amazon link, but I'm sure you can find it. Baja Designs sells them too.

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/ditch-lights-stolen-anti-theft-hardware.750537/#post-26732819
    (I wasn't able to clear the hood with the included Diode Dynamics ditch brackets and the square hardware, so I just opted not to use them. :fingerscrossed:)

    For the side bolts you just need to find the appropriate diameter and length bolt. Many different security bolt head designs are available. I believe I used these 10-32 x 3/8 button head fastenere ones for my SS3 Pro ditch lights. Bit was included with the screws.

    That is an ape-propriate response.

    I'm having a hard time getting my head around what that must sound like in a smallish truck. Wow.

    Today I finally thawed my wiper blades by parking facing the sun. Exciting I know. Lots of cold and snow pictures from this past weekend's storm so a bunch of us may have done the same.

    More seriously: I wonder if some of those in Canada or Alaska might have some advice. I'm no stranger to cold weather but this weekend I could not clear the ice off the wipers. They had clear ice beads most of the length, distorting the rubber. Rubbing it between my fingers didn't work. Smacking it on the windshield didn't work. Running the defrost on high just made more water on the windshield run down to freeze on the wipers (and I had to open the windows it was so toasty in the truck). I don't think winter blades would have helped (those work well for snow buildup).
    For reference I was driving in -18 F temps with snowfall (doesn't the snow know to stay inside when it's that cold?).

    Can’t believe you remembered the tailgate :rolleyes: it’s because of the tailgate that I started thinking more about security! The tailgate incident happened at work actually and the ditch lights were at home— my area didn’t seem like the type but I guess it’s just starting to get bad. My wife and I plan to move out of Cali anyway by the time our girl goes to school so that should fix that :rofl::thumbsup:

    If you ever so briefly push the wiper stalk up, you can get the wipers to rest higher on the windshield, in the heat from the defrost. It’s difficult to time, just a very brief press of the stalk, but something I learned to do in my first gen because it was much easier. This will help, very very slightly, in keeping the edge of the rubber in contact with the glass thawed, but won’t fix fully frozen wipers.
    When the wipers are iced as you describe, I pull them and put them in the foot wells before I go into work. As long as it’s above 10f they will be thawed when you get back

    Try using Isopropyl Alcohol and half & half with just plain water. Use a spray bottle. :typing:
    Let us know if it works.

    Good call.
    You are faster on the keyboard than I am. I was going to tell @MrMobile to bump the wiper switch so as to park the blades halfway through their arc. The defrost heat will have more effect on them.
    Good thinking about bringing the blades inside the warm cab... as long as the plastic mounting hardware can handle being manipulated while frozen. ??
