    Those damn flies. Every year we do the docks at my buddies house and a few of his neighbors in the ADK, we get eaten alive.

    Got my solar panel mounted. Mount uses existing tonneau cover bolt holes. Mount comes on and off in under a minute. It's my daily driver so all adventuring stuff I want easy on easy off. Still need to make it pretty but below are pics of the test fit.

    Found the fuel pump controller occupying the same spot on the frame as one of my slider legs, so I fabricated a bracket to relocate it:

    I made the bracket from a 6"x6" "carport saddle" found at Home Depot. It comes zinc plated; I will paint it black when I paint my sliders.

    Installed an additional trans cooler today.
    After taking my Taco from Jersey to Florida & back, I realized that I don't like the excessive heat from the 6 speed.
    My brother's FJ doesn't heat up even while towing & he has almost 180k. (No repairs only maintenance)
    There's a lot of speculation about what engineers envisioned & why we shouldn't circumvent their design.
    Heat destroys transmissions.
    Personally speaking, these engineers don't really want our 3rd gen Tacos surpassing 180k.

    Here is where I started researching.

    Not the prettiest install but it's rock solid, drilled into plastic & it allows space for some future projects.

    I added the CAI too ... it’s a subtle improvement and not really noticeable until WOT and then it’s got a really nice tone.

    Here’s a picture. I believe it could be the automated car wash.

    No it still seems solid. We get temps from the teens in the winter and high 90’s in the summer. Can beat it for the money.

    Nice, i just felt like it could snap while tightening down the clamps, didn't want to over tighten them. Hopefully it serves me well. So far I'm liking it. No noises and handles 65 - 75mph just fine without lifting.

    It was fairly easy.

    Ran 12 AWG from my Blue seas fuse panel, down through the wheel well, down along the frame, along the taillight wiring, up into the taillight well into the rear of the bed. I bought the parts on Amazon. There are a lot of options. Just find one you like. I use a hole saw and drilled three holes into the bed liner. Mounted the switches and that was that. If you dont want to drill holes like that into your bed you can use a wiring box. Like one used for 110v stuff. Ive seen that before.

    Exactly why I did this as well. As well as other devices while I am camping.

I installed the on off switch for that reason.
