    I’m ready to get rid of my heavy, stiff E rated tires too. I get about 14mpg (all city). Used to get 17-18mpg without trying hard with C rated and a lift.
    I guess I’ll have to try to sell the E rated ones.

    I'm gonna go for LT255/80R17s in the Falken Wildpeak AT3Ws. I'll actually save weight over my 265/70R17 Hankook Dynapro ATM's which SUCK on road in any condition. Little bit of loose dust on the road? You betcha you're spinning tires.

    coleman single burner butane stove... sucks in the wind barely got a small pot of water warm in nearly 10 minutes on a northern maine trip had it in the bed with the stove box as a windbreak with 16OZ water in a covered pot. it lit up fine, and I had it on high, but the wind was too much.. not enough BTU's, was roughly 22degrees out. we had stopped for a lunch break and I was testing the $20 unit for future use.. seems to put out a bit of heat in calm breeze, but crappy in winds.. also heard some say they dont put out as much BTU's in cold temps due to the butane bottle/valve tend to freeze up... I wound up buying a JetBoil Flash along with the pot stand for it. just need to invest in some isopropane cans... anyone know a cheap-er source? Walmart has the larger 230-250gm cans for $10 each.

    I went for the name, not to mention I like the fact that it all nests inside itself, and i can get a larger pot, as well as a coffee press for it. mainly got it for the fact that it will boil water FAST!! for when I need my cuppa JOE!

    It's literally the same thing as jet boil. Nests inside. Legs for the butane, clicker for ignition, built in wind shield. My buddies lid fits so the press will work too.

    My access literider tonneau cover which is a roll-up. I have nothing against it. In terms of quality, it is simple, affordable and well made. I wanted that back in 2016, but after 3 years and moving to a part of town that is not as safe where car break-ins occur every night. I really wish I had sprung the extra cash for a hard top tri-fold. It is double the price of the literider but well worth it for the security.

    Here is the one I really want. Full access to the cab and being hard top is what I really need.

    Lifted, armored, lumenz w/ switches, positraked, scuba ready, pizza cuttin tires, debadged with a hood skewp.
    Mines a compound regret first is the snorkel got a great deal on it was one of those had a few an get on Amazon nights. Like the extra passing power an slight mpg increase.
    But with the dorky snorky installed the truck looked a little off with nothing on the roof to offset it. So I ordered an Martin roofrack love the look but can’t stand the wind noise from a strong head/crosswind. Makes the roof slightly flex an the rack is like a kite pushing me all over the road.

    I regretted buying regular Dakars so I added a leaf to make them HDs now no regrets.

    Every day I simultaneously regret and love my high octane tune from Ovtune.

    A bull bar....got it as a gift so I couldn't really get rid of it.

    Plus as a couple people earlier had put...the Tacoma in general. It's a great little truck, but man...if you have that itch of modding...it gets expensive real quick. And I think I would've gone with a 4runner instead....next time I guess

    A full Gibson catback exhaust... Not on this truck but on a Dakota I owned about 20 years ago. Seemed like a great idea at the time... "Let's cut off and perfectly good stock exhaust system on our V6 and put on this ridiculously loud droning thing to annoy the entire neighborhood and give ourselves a headache as we drive down the interstate".

    My advice to anyone looking at exhaust is to leave it alone unless you own a V8.

    My brother had a 1996 Dodge Dakota V6: man, that exhaust sounded sweet totally stock!

    But yeah, V6s in general sound pretty awful. I like the sound of Tacoma with the manual transmission, not so much with the automatic.

    I've had that set up before and my wheeling rig (XJ sport) just sat in my driveway. I had a fast sedan but always had to call a buddy or rent a u-haul for house chores. The truck was a great compromise and I don't miss the speed at all, considering a granny in a stock Tesla model S would smoke my V8 in a straight line.
