    Thank you, when I first got it 1 week ago as a Certified Pre-Owned, there was some rusty components that concerned me: Inner CV axle, front diff, and steering components around that area. They were all rusted on the surface, very strange because other parts looked fine. Anyway, once I lifted the vehicle and did a thorough check underneath, I was able to sleep better at night, the frame were in good condition, just need to touch up on some of the seams that had little rust developed. Also sprayed rust reformer on the above mentioned parts. Hopefully that is it for the rusting, and I want to keep my frame away from rust as much as I can.
    This method have worked well on my last Tundra and it was able to stay rust free for the 4.5 years of my ownership. Cheers!

    The night I first saw this Tacoma at the dealer

    New backup cam for hitch-mount MTB rack.

    Having just installed a new Snugtop Rebel shell, I have to use a hitch rack for my MTB's. That's all fine and well and I picked up a near-new Yakima from Offerup.
    The rack now lives permanently on the truck. Welp, whether there are 1 or 2 bikes on the rack; or it's stowed upright while not in use, the rear camera is 90% blocked from seeing anything due to the rack.

    Since I've become accustomed to it, I decided to pick up the "tailgatecamera.com" plug-and-play camera to regain my rear vision since the topper and rack and lift are all obstacles to the view. Full cost was $171 shipped to CA.

    The kit comes with all hardware needed, a shabby little paper showing the install schematic and a 25' length of cable in case you want to mount it somewhere really far? There are a myriad of videos on how to do the unplug-the-old and plug-in-the-new, just search YT. My post is to show the difference in the view Before and After with the new camera.

    Pics show the differences. I tried many spots and landed on the top of the rack itself, as it gave the best overall rear-view with the rack up and down. The guide lines are there by default, and if you don't want the lines, there is a little wire loop to simply snip and they go away.

    The resolution is way better with this new camera over stock, and the distance lines are crisper and further out. It is a little more "fish-eye" but I'll get used to it. Also since the camera is not showing the bumper like the factory one does, there's gonna be a learning curve to how close I actually am to the objects behind.

    Jmneill recently teased me...

    "You're wanting the jeep guy to "come out" while you're running around in a truck with pink nipple rings? "

    So, I've decided to paint them to kinda match the truck with some FDE bake on finish that I had handy :anonymous:

    ARB is designed to dive back/down in a front collision (like crumple zones) to save additional frame twisting.

    You should have centered the picture on your Kia.

    Not exactly how I’d hoped for today to go. Driving back from a work assignment and a bonehead sped thru a red light. I tried to stop once I saw him, but it wasn’t enough in half a second. Clipped the front of my Tacoma and went on to crash into 3 other vehicles, some getting much more damage than I did. Thankfully I am okay, just frustrated if nothing else. Obviously grille/bumper is destroyed, fenders and hood are bent as well. Driver door is crunchy opening against the fender. I don’t think it bothered steering/suspension, as it drove fine coming home. I just hope there’s no frame damage.
