    It's in...(the truck):

    The tablet is an old POS Asus that is pretty useless because it's old and too many apps won't update due to said age. Sorry for the shyte pics, it was nighttime when I got home to install. The new tablet is on order...

    It does shake some if you tap it, but I'm guessing at trail speeds it'll be OK.


    Damn, my truck needs cleaning again...

    That's pretty neat, fit-up is a lot better than I expected. Usually those kind of mounts are a bit chunky but that one is clean. Well done!

    Daaammnnn! I placed an order at 3pm Thursday (yesterday) and did not expect this! @RCI-Offroad moves fast when the parts are in stock.

    Don't go crazy thinking I ordered a new bumper or something (not yet anyway). Just grabbed a fuel tank skid plate for 20% off.

    Are you placing an order?

    Geez, are they really that expensive? Or, do you have a bunch of options selected?

    I think a Michigan trip is in order for my vacation. Perhaps I can capture one of those "beauty where I woke up" pictures that people take out the back of their topper or out the door of their rooftop tent :D I'm doing my best to take advantage of this unusually warm and snowless winter. Last year this time there were big snow banks

    Are you making those stickers at work, home?
    My wife uses the Cricket at home to make a bunch of cool stuff.
    Stickers, shirts, yeti cups....
    We also have a sublimation printer at home for doing full color T's.

    The higher mileage, front speakers, little bit of underbody rust, and especially the HVAC tape on the airbox would make it a lot easier to wheel it without feeling guilty. The vertical doors are hot.

    As much as I want one of these, I think the right hand drive would kill me.

    I think we’re looking at the 2025 WI Tacoma Calendar cover picture in the making.

    The tech I went to had a screen printing set-up. I printed up 50 shirts one year (2 color) and went out to 5 concerts in 7 days.
    Selling the t-shirts paid my way.
    It's a lot of work (was) but it looks good.
    Sublimation is ok. You get CMYK only the colors aren't as strong as screen print.
