    Well after too many issues (so exactly as many as I'd expected), I got the spark plugs and wires done. Never done them before, on any vehicle, so it was a learning experience. Overall, once I got everything I needed and stopped being a dumbass, it wasn't bad. Another piece of the long list of maintenance items done.

    I rarely post here as nothing I have done has been done well. But today, I have accomplished the impossible. Here in Fort Collins CO we have elms everywhere and all those elms have scale and all those scale parasites drop dark sappy droplets over everything that parks under it. It dries into a rock hard crystal bumps. Dark reddish brown and sometimes green. It is impossible to wash off and if you scrape it off you scrape your clear coat or chip your paint off. The previous owner clearly had a elm tree. So, I parked the taco on the lawn, covered it with sheets and towels, and set a sprinkler up pointed at the hood and roof. I turned the sprinkler on and napped most the day.

    By 6pm those little rock solid crystals were weak enough to take off with fingernails or a credit card corner. Take that dry elm scale poop crystals!!!! We will see if I scratched the gel coat in the morning.

    Early this morning, while contemplating whether to paint Chassis Saver or normal paint on my almost rust free frame, I ate pie and coffee while I SAT under my truck. Because… I CAN. (insert man grunts here celebrating my clearance. I am 6’2”)

    Also… I am finally getting a return on investment on my 2 year old.

    Anyone ever had any experience with the Demello hybrid tube/steel bumper before? My buddy has one on his double cab and I feel in love with it. Turns our Demello isn't making these at the moment. I hope they do again some day.

    Limited Edition Double Cab TRD off road 4WD
    Bumper was hit backing up so chrome paint pop up and 1st owner didn't take care.
    Now looking for solutions on how to fix it to prevent a search for another bumper?
    My none-experience plan is:
    1. remove all rusted chrome as much possible to clean metal
    2. then rust encapsurator chasis saver paint black
    3. fill up and level with J&B as filler.
    4. then black rustoleom bedliner paint the square base area around.

    Can you share any better ideas ?

    Amazon has a bunch of different kinds, thats where I got this one. The mounting brackets are flimsy so I made my own, and I got better hose than what came with it.
