    Very nice. I have always wondered why the stiffener mfrs don't use box section.

    You sound like my dad (God rest his soul). It could be a foot of snow, 50 below outside (in Missi'ppi no less lol), and he'd still be in shorts and short sleeve shirt. Rest of us would be bundled up.

    What is the ORV about? Why a sticker for it? I have lived in Texas for 40+ years and never heard of that.

    Sorry, oddly no side shot with this wheel/tire combo, but yes this is the Nexen Roadian MTX in 35/12.5/17. A lot of my recent pics on IG I'm running Maxxis RAZR MTs in 315/70-17.

    I've used exactly once over the past 5 years to power my electric kettle to make coffee after we lost power from a hurricane. Best cup of coffee I've ever made.

    You have a kettle that draws less than 400W? That's unusual.

    Is anyone who picked up a new Meso Flip-Fob willing to share a review before I destroy my only OEM Key and cut the new one :wink:

    I know it's early for impressions, but any input is welcome input. I would however like like to hear more than "Love It" or "Hate It" if you are willing to share your experience.

    I’ll share my thoughts on the flip fob.

    I’ve actually driven a lot the last couple of days, short trips but more than usual for some reason.

    Assembly was smooth but I have not extracted a transponder from a key yet.

    The buttons aren’t perfect but they work well enough for me to be satisfied. I understand why filing is needed and first assembly caused lock/unlock when pressed together so it’s obvious.

    The flip works like any other flip I’ve had.

    It’s grippy, many OEM flips are smooth and perhaps even a bit slippery.

    It’s larger in volume than I expected but not massive. Feels substantial in your pocket but not ridiculous. I think style-wise it may appeal more to dudes than ladies but maybe I’m projecting there.

    I’m not 100% sure I will buy a second one but still leaning that way. I’ll get a different color if so and I’m split on green vs red for now.

    I find it easier to know without looking which button is lock vs unlock since they are in a straight line and there is a reference point with the TRD/blank tab on top of the front Allen bolt which has good tactile feel. With the OEM key I found myself looking to make sure I was pressing the right one.

    Maybe 4-4.5 / 5 stars overall for me?

    Possible negatives:
    1. Shaving or filing the sides of the buttons isn’t something I really want to do. I’m fine with filing the pins though. And the buttons aren’t all that smooth though they definitely work. I think unlock is maybe the least satisfying click. So maybe I should shave that pin more but I don’t want to shave too much. This seems fixable with multiple sets of buttons if they aren’t overly expensive to produce.
    2. I got black and it’s pretty black. Grey/red buttons would be nice to break it up. Other colors have more contrast which I think looks cool. Maybe my fault for lack of creativity on color choice.
    3. Price is maybe a bit more than expected but could be $100 and I’d still have bought at least one. I’m sure MESO math is fair based on other products so this is a comment expressing a little surprise at what it costs to manufacture something like this. At $50 or so it would feel like more of a must have, whereas for $70 I think it might be reasonable to expect it could optionally come with a transponder too, or add one for $5 then MESO could source those in bulk.
    4. I wonder if panic might be better as a half size button like it is on the key to suppress accidental clicks.
