    Ya know @CygnusX191 ... this is our happy/safe space. If you don't start showing some compassion for the human condition, I think I am going to petition the guards for a time out. Please, when you see a little mistake-iedo, just take breath and... Fruck off for frucks sake. If you cannot understand what is being said, contextually, ask for clarity. This isn't grammar class. Grammar shaming will not abide, dude!

    By the way... did you help that guy out who took his CV's apart? I tagged you in on that thinking a certified OCD master Toyota mechanic guy could help with an orientation problem.

    Once you get 35's it won't be so easy to use that side access... A flatbed can help. Still use the cap too.

    Okay, I won't spam this thread with these things, just have to double check that everyone has seen the freebies. I am offering practically new floor mats (pictures below) and ugly but fully functioning 5160s also for free.

    Not that I am not completely hook line and sinker into the flatbed thing, but I sold my rack yesterday for the old bed setup I had. Guy was stoked-put it on a first gen Tundra! He can carry a canoe now. Saturday I had a woman at the coffee shop say to me that she liked the other set up better. She thought the flatbed was too aggressive looking. Missed the messy attachments and such of the rack set up. Huh, who knew people paid so much attention to other peoples stuff... Other than having muddy slop slosh over the bed area in Arkansas and trashing all my storage areas, I don't miss that bed at all. Not one guilty tree strike since I changed over! Some evidence of tree strikes, but the trees suffer now, not so much the sheet metal...

    Yeah, and the next time I miss one, someone else will get on me about that :D

    I'll check it out. Thanks for the heads-up

    very true. It’s pretty high already which has me considering something like bam boards to raise up what I put up near the cab.

    RSI makes a sweet kitchen cubby that has a fold out shelf for a stove. Most of the videos I’ve seen with that have a person of shorter stature cooking at shoulder height.

    I hadn’t thought about using this cap with a flat bed. That might be a long term idea to ponder upon. Hmmm……

    I am not sure about that statement... I might be the hick. Education does not a smart man make... This group is pretty heady me thinks.

    Getting ready for the TX trip. Rotated the air in the tires and some cleaning yesterday. Today, I took care of my taco lean. That shock comes out so much easier with the sway bar missing.
