    Did a little thing my dad did the center caps and I did the rims. The tool box in the bed I got for free from a 2013 tacoma on offer up, it cleaned up nice with a pressure wash and some trim restore.

    I changed the air freshener to a new one, one time.
    Not a bad looking pair if you ask me. ;)

    I've done a mod or two
    Most of the AGM options fit like that, I have a @Coupe bracket which has adjustable edges to grip the battery better.

    This is on my old truck, cause I don't really take pics of the new one, but you get the idea, the things that trap the sides of the battery can be moved and locked into new positions.

    Went to replace my TPS on my throttle body. Removed the top screw and stripped out the second. Whose idea was it to put Phillips head screws in there. So I’ll be removing the whole assembly to replace the sensor. May as well clean it up while it’s off. Any recommendations for making it shine again?

    That looks really nice. Did you replace any screws with bolts with the same thread pitch?
