    My bad for not being more clear on that. As a hunter I just assumed that everyone knew what the DU stood for.
    Must be the Yankee version of a Redneck that makes me think that way!

    Good morning all!
    My mod for the day is more dog hair in the cab and hopefully some pheasant and woodcock feathers in the bed!
    :D

    Good morning :pccoffee:

    Look forward to seeing the feather mod!

    Here's a mod my Tacoma helped with...hauled a sheet of steel to make the ramp handicap accessible. It weighed a couple hundred pounds. IMG_6054[1].jpg

    Cost is ALWAYS a consideration, but with the holes and screws already there all we are talking about is the cost of the product itself. It is simply stamped and folded. in bulk it could not be more than $2-3 bucks. Hell, Toyota will audit you and make sure you are just making pennies above cost of materials and manufacturing.

    The rail's 4.5 lbs. is only a 10th of a % of the trucks weight...…..Americans are demanding more shit be added to even the most basic vehicles and that weight has to be offset in other places or shipping costs rise and CAFE number plummet. I'm sure the Toyota product development folks get frustrated with their internal corporate objectives to save weight when (some) consumers cannot wait to add 1,000 lbs of stuff to their truck.

    I make my living in product development, ounces become pounds.

    If you really dig deeper weight savings is one of the areas where the Japanese automakers really first beat the Americans and the benefits are compounded. In the old days American cars would have certain parts that would last 40,000 miles and other parts that could take a nuclear strike. The overbuilt parts made the cars heavy and resulted in other parts needing to be overbuilt in a never ending circlejerk. The Japanese were the first to make cars that went 200K without much attention, but at that point EVERYTHING (some would say even the windshield would be worn out) Now that number has increased to 300K for Japanese cars.

    Haven't left yet, would you settle for Yellow Lab hair, have plenty of that. :rofl:
    Usually wait till around noon. That gets most of the meat hunters out of the way and then the real dog guys hunt the birds that have been spread out. For me it's more about watching the dog do what you've trained him to do and alot less than what I put in the game bag. If it was about just having to shoot a bird I'd be out there for all the wrong reasons. Just my take on it. Anytime we both come in one piece is a good day afield. :thumbsup:

    If you then add the cost (time is money) to install it times X number of vehicles built and then add the profit from selling it as an option times X number of units sold IMO it comes down to profit over weight. The plastic rear bumper would be another example of huge cost savings in both materials and man hours.
    We're both just looking at things from a different perspective. Profit is the main goal of any industry.

    As noted not needed, you reuse the screws that are already there. I recall seeing empty holes, but they are in the haeder (2) for something else. I guessed (wrong) and ordered 4, AND there were not needed as you just reuse the 5 that are already installed.

    I have spares now, lol.

    I'm curious about that scoop on the intake. Is it always in that position? How does that work? Logic and the Venturi Effect would suggest you are creating a low pressure area at the opening at speed. Perhaps OK on the dyno, but no bueno going down the road. Just trying to understand.

    Just a prototype, haven't tested yet. It's not a ram air but I don't think there will be any issues(fingers crossed). I have tried out a regular snorkel head turned 180° with no side effects.
