    I had a similar experience. Bought the truck at 14000 miles and the tread already looked half gone. Currently they sit at about 4/32nds. They will be getting replaced before winter.

    Gave her a bath, a quick wax, and the ol' Woolwax treatment. But since she's black, she's already dirty again! What a mess Woolwax was, but I have a little peace of mind for the winter. Hopefully I was thorough enough.

    Bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work. Don't know who first said it but I concur.

    Excellent! Yeah my current ones are water resistant but I've spilled oil, honey and dog vomit to name a few and it's sat... And given me time to get home, remove the covers and wash them no soak through so I'd be very interested to know! Also how hard the install is...

    Installed the rest of my switches and moved them to the cubby. @CaliRaisedLed OEM switches, cubby panel and the dual usb outlet!
    Tapped the lights so they glow at night then get brighter when on. Tapped the cigarette fuse for the outlet so I don't kill my battery on accident.

    Also installed my @GDESMOND1976 Desmo Overland center console molle panel. Dusted my screws with black spray paint and it looks excellent!

    I added a new switch for my Hella 500s. The stock one was some chintzy little circular switch, so I bought a new switch that fit into an existing switch blank (with just a bit of trimming). It works very nicely and certainly looks tidier than original switch. The Hella 500s come with a wiring harness for everything, but I ended up using a fuse tap on the interior fuse box for the switch's power supply, instead of hooking it into any existing wires or attaching it right to the battery (a 2A fuse is spec'd in the original harness, but that uses ATO-size fuses so you will need to buy a Low Profile Mini-size fuse tap and Low Profile Mini 2A fuses if you go this route). I tapped into the "washer" fuse, which was 10A. The lid for the fuse box will not fit with a fuse tap installed, so I ordered the Meso Customs extended fuse box cover.

    Overall, I'm very pleased. This is the first electrical project I've ever done on a car, and I'm happy with how it turned out.

    It can be. The lake is surrounded by Las Padres National Forest which has a lot of Quail. Today I was on BLM land closer to the Valley. I thought Pismo dunes were opening up again?

    I love the idea of this saying, but I just can’t agree with it. Not sure if it’s some of the very expensive bad fishing days I’ve had, or some of the amazingly great days I’ve had at work, but it has not been my experience.

    CBI Overland Bars installed. Was able to pick these up off of Offerup for 150 less then online, brand new in box. Nice in-between until some black friday deals. Hopefully some RTT companies do some nice deals coming up for the holidays. Just need to buy the mounts for maxtrax and hi-lift and plan on taking the truck out for the first time this weekend for some light trails here in the Washington.

    Curious what leafsprings you're running there and what length U-bolts? Looks good

    Anytime afield, in the woods or on the water is a great day for me. Don't get out there ànywhere near as much as I once did.

    Did you add tubing along the top edge of the skid to keep your shackle from bouncing around? Brilliant!!

    Finally got around to routing the compressor and front locker switch into the cab. Was originally planning to have a 4x4 Spod by now. But since there was an obstacle last weekend that I could have used the front locker on but was too lazy to open the hood just to engage it, I figure it’s time to actually put it in a usable location... Haha

    I didn’t mind the compressor switch being under the hood since I have to open the hood to get to the coupler anyways. But when I wired and plumbed the air locker I didn't feel like routing the switches at the time.

    Also remembered that a friend of mine gave me an extra Cali Raised switch panel a couple years back. It was designed for narrow OEM style switches, so I had to trim a bit of the panel and trim the top and bottom of the switch faces to fit in between the dash surround.

    Didn’t turn out bad considering it didn’t cost me a dime.

    Do elaborate, I just installed a bumper light bar and want the background of the switch to illuminate with all the rest of the switches.
