    Does she drive 20mph in a 35mph zone?
    Does she drive over every sunken manhole cover?

    If you get that wool wax nice and saturated with mud particles, silt, and assorted grit, then reapply WW over the top of that, you’ll eventually get a nearly permanent crust. Not actually permanent since you can still remove it and find shiny paint underneath, but close enough.

    And the crust will turn a brand new custom color based on the last muddy puddle you went through. My favorite custom color to date was the one I called Saharan Warlord Tan

    Pretty much, and she never notices stop signs.

    Relentless Fab hybrid bumper, 2.5” Dobinsons IMS lift, RCI skids and sliders, block heater. Rola rack. Painted FJ Steelies. Was trying to keep it stock, now slowly building for the Wisconsin trails.
    I installed the sliders on the wife’s taco last weekend. I had fluid filmed it ahead the snow but because it’s only been street driven it doesn’t have the dusty crust yet.
    It looks beautiful but man was that a greasy job.

    Not sure how strict they are?
    I only had a 1# extinguisher in the truck.
    Will have to put the 2#er in.

    So. Many. Stickers.
    First couple of times I put my truck on the lift at work to do things, some of the guys were like bro. Your frame is ready to go and then they got closer and realized it was my fluid film/ junk coating. :D

    Sad to see, but really looking forward to his posthumous book release about his collection.

    One of you is a genius-you were correct that the noise from the rear brakes was the spring thingy: fixed (under $20)!

    They won’t be tall enough. Especially once you realize the error of your ways and put on the 35’s your truck deserves!

    I guess I forgot to add the disclaimer I’m not planning to use them for the truck. For cars that are too short to get under

    you can use the one model with the truck though, I watched some videos yesterday with both tundras and Tacomas

    Looks like she’ll have to bring it on the next trip and run it through some mud!! That will turn the greasy frame into a more acceptable “grimey” frame. :p
