    Read through the maintenance records on my new-to-me, 36k mile, certified used truck. Toyota dealer changed the oil with Exxon Superflo. Ya gotta know that it can't be worth much when the Toyota dealer charges $3/qt. A quick trip to the dealer for a filter, with a stop at Wal Mart for some Mobil 1 fixed that crap. Splashed a bit on the garage floor as it gushed (much faster than I expected) out of the drain hole, but no biggie.

    BTW, 1st post other than intro.

    An oil change and got new rear brakes. The pads were paper thin @ 65000 miles. It's nice to have a higher pedal again.

    Got my sub box done today... took the time and removed both front seats and vacuumed under them while I was at it. Also took out my rear floor mats which were for a DC anyways

    Tinkered with the bumper a little more. Didn't take any pics, but I weighed it. 182 pounds without winch. It still has quite a bit of work left, but most of that. Will be removing excess material. Hoping to keep total weight under 200 pounds

    200 lbs @ the very front will cause the stock suspension to sag (especially under hard braking). Time for stronger springs...

    I've got an OME lift with 886s. 4x4x.25 square tube and .25 plate. I have always built truck accessories way overkill. My last truck's front bumper weighed 340 pounds with winch. Truck before that was about 300 pounds, but didn't have a winch. And my first vehicle was a '90 pathfinder with 6" schedule 80 pipe bumper with center hoop made with 3" schedule 160. I've been in several wrecks, none of them my fault, snd have totaled every vehicle thats has come in contact with one mine.( except when my grandma t-boned my '12 taco 1 monyh after I bought it.

    I don't even think 886's are rated for that much weight if you add a winch to that bumper!
