    I ran the wires along the driver's side kick plates. I have a DC. Behind the rear seat there is a rubber grommet with a wiring harness already running through it. I ran the wires through there and along the top of the frame to the rear. I took the inside plate off the tailgate and mounted the camera through one of the 2 bolt holes that holds the handle to the tailgate. I had to modify the back of the handle and the tailgate with a dremel to get it to fit right. the back of the camera has a bolt sticking out the back. I installed a nut and it rebolted tailgate handle to it's original position. I hope that made sense.

    I found a pic from the original install.
    that is exactly what i did. the hole in the tailgate had to be elongated with a dremel in order to thread the camera into the handle. this style camera was the best i could find for my install location. the camera came with a nut and tightened the handle down great. im confident in the install. i drilled one hole in the side of the handle and threaded the camera in half way, then installed the handle and finished treading it in.

    They are mostly the same. Control arms are longer (I believe.) I’ll be able to look closer when I actually replace them on my tundra

    Started fabricating my PS cooler mount. It’s basically going to free float between these two rails via heavy duty zip ties.

    I'd imagine it's been checked before but it would be a poor man's LT if it fit.

    I don’t think it would offer much more travel.

    I should probably give my buckets a good inspection. I'll be surprised if I don't find anything.

    Supercharged TRD
    TRD S/C, ADS coilovers.
    Just out of curiosity, would running a AIT sensor after the supercharger have any benefits?

    The idea would be to tap one into the lower intake manifold and splicing the temp sensor from the MAF to that new AIT sensor.

    Hopefully it would help the computer better compensate for Boost and the added heat.

    Anybody have any thoughts on that?

    I've thought about doing it with the turbo. How does the computer handle hotter temps? Will it add more fuel to keep cylinder temps down?
