    I think I’ve finally found an acceptable location for my cell phone. I bought a wireless charging phone mount back when I had my ’05 Gen 2 Taco and I hated the two mounting options that it came with. The CD mount was not very ridged and the phone obscured my aftermarket stereo controls. The AC-vent mounting option was even worse. I couldn’t get that to even mount correctly.

    When I bought my ’03 PreRunner I could make the AC-vent work but it wasn’t very rigid, would work itself loose over time, and the phone blocked some of my climate control and stereo buttons.

    What I ended up doing was buying a mount (non-charging) that attaches to one of the cup holders. I rarely use the larger cupholders nearest the dash so I gambled that I could removed the phone holder from the mount and that the socket & ball sizes would be compatible. IT WAS!! So now I’m using the base and stalk from the newer one with the charging phone holder section from the older one and it’s perfect! It’s more rigid than the other options and the phone location doesn’t obscure anything. I can still access my shifter, e-brake, and controls. It’s also far enough from my leg to not be a problem and best of all I can rest my arm on my thigh and it puts my fingers right at the phone surface.

    Original CD or AC-Vent mount with wireless charging link:

    My new to me 2002....120,000 miles. What I've done in the last 2 weeks since purchase???
    Replaced timing belt, all belts, A/C compressor, pulleys, water pump, etc.
    Repaired faulty SS airbag module.
    Epoxy painted spare tire wheel, spare tire carrier, and rear axle.
    Repainted AL wheels back to silver.

    Next up:
    Valve cover gasket replacement + coils, spark plugs and spark plug wires.
    Replace rear springs and shocks

    Mid term:
    Repaint (it's a clean truck but has some scratches and dings I want removed)
    New tires (current ones are new but I want something a little more aggressive)
    Possibly new wheels (thinking 2002 era 4 Runner or T100 wheels - Aluminum)

    For the people that have the occasional hook up with P0420 code,

    Does it seem to pop up more when you’re just cruising around 2 tracks on the mountain than it does normal highway/freeway miles?

    Had it pop up twice over the weekend, I hadn’t have to delete for a couple week prior.

    While waiting for more speed parts to show up I fixed my winch fairlead after Hells Revenge decided my brakes were not worthy. Some hammer and booger welds and it's good enough.

    And now my shitty built winch isn't spooling in or out. Yay.

    When mine started happening, it would only come up when on the trail in 4lo. Would clear it and not see it again till the next trail

    Eventually started happening while driving highway though

    Any code reader will read and clear a code lol

    I mean if you don't have to get smogged you really don't have to worry about it at all unless the cat gets clogged or something.

    I hit a P0420 the other day after driving ~50 miles in 4hi. I checked and cleared it using Torque Pro and will consider doing something about it if it happens again. Since I just bought the truck last summer, I have some time til I need to go in for smog.

    In other news, I finally painted my winch mount and ordered a M8-S.

    Mine used to show up like that until I added the supercharger. Now it's gone. Easy fix.

    I wouldn’t really care when I’m just buying gas every couple of days.
    It’s when I’m filling up a couple times a day for 3 or 4 weeks that sound painful.


    Maybe some day
