    In Denver, as I imagine other bigger cities, the worst of it was there was no place to go with the snow.
    All the plows could do was keep pushing it around and slowly remove it.

    Since this group is helpful at spending other people's money, I have a request from those of you that know me.

    For Christmas, my stepsons gave a certificate to be used for Tacoma mods or camping equipment.
    Do any of you remember me talking about something I might be interested in getting?
    No front locker.
    No 35's.

    I don't remember you mentioning anything in particular but I can suggest a couple of things useful for storage. I have similar trays for ALF. They work great for the small stuff.

    Ahh, so you are really a parking lot queen? I have seen behavior that says otherwise... As @CygnusX191 has stated you don't really need them unless you drive it like you stole it all the time. I prefer the flex gains to the cornering, as small as they may be.

    Okay... that buys you some immunity. My wife thinks my truck madness is manifest from the dent that has appeared in my head-literally a dent. About 3" long 3/4 inch wind and 1/2 inch deep. Wtf? Just showed up a couple months ago. Right up front. Online MD says its a big deal, or not (go figure.) Going to ask about it at the next doctor's appointment... At least I something to blame (at the moment) for my affliction. Buy truck stuff-blame it on the dent!

    Since as of now you don't plan on wheeling the truck through real narley stuff you probably don't need anything. With that said additional lighting is always a good option. Maybe add something to the camping gear, recovery gear, or just gas money to come visit and go wheeling ;).






    But really...... 35's

    Sinkholes in your skull are probably worth getting a look at.

    I missed that bottom bit! Was literally going to call you out for being so responsible. You have good options though... I am irresponsibly thinking about the exponential increase in capability that 37's would give me... Certainly force the regear and thus front locker. The whole sending my girls to college thing is cramping my style!

    Have them get their own studen loans lol.

    Once I get a different daily 37's will be the next set of tires. I'm ready to chop the firewall and inner fenders :sawzall:

    That's the beauty of KDSS. Better cornering, and better flex.

    Additional lighting is in the works.
    When I ran the wires for the rear bumper lights, I also ran wires for a bumper mounted chase light. I have a few other assorted lights that have been waiting to go on.
    I do need better cab organization.
    Tires. 33's


    Trip to Arizona,
    I will keep that in mind.
