    My dad bought it chipped and banksed I believe, but he traded a guy for his stockers for some reason, the guy tried to give my dad cash, but now it just has Michelin’s, which is great for what we use it for. I try to keep an eye on shit for her, but she usually takes it somewhere to get it worked on.
    The creature comforts are nice for sure, I think it’s got rear dvd something or other.......we’ve never used it!!!
    The sound system is nice and the heated seats were nice, the one time i drove in cold weather(same trip up the steep grades)

    What I noticed is that my Tundra's seat heaters are stronger than his. He has seat A/C and that works surprisingly well in the desert though. He also has a '15 2nd Gen Taco and those seat heaters are extremely hot!!

    After some master tweaking we feel tighter. Still not perfect but much improved. Strikers are as tight against body as they can be.

    Might adjust some more tomorrow. New wheels and tires Friday. Need to finish putting the interior back together tomorrow.

    Bad focus. Oh well. Enjoy the potato photo.

    Don't OEM cat's have some crazy arse long warrantee on them? Like 10 or 12 years? I'd really look into his cat's still having some warranty on them.

    89 yota pickup. Waiting on photos and full specs, but it’s a 22re 5 speed. If the price is right I’m jumping on it. Frames rotted, beds toast. May use it for the Mercedes powerplant

    correction. it would appear that using the r/b no. 3 from a 1st gen sequoia would be best. factory is wired up for 3 fuses with 60 amps total power available, 2 relays already wired internally to 2 of those fuses. and it looks like you can stretch out to 2 more fuses if you so desired. max amp draw for that box unless you upgraded the stock wiring internally would be a safe 60 amps.. my idea is one light bar (or a condensor fan) plus my horns off this box. and it would leave me 1 + extra fuse if i wanted to wire it up. only 2 extra relays. but nothing i want to add really needs more relays... I would probably just run a 60 amp circuit breaker from the battery to that relay box. Would be much cleaner (and more weather proof) than my current relay on firewall with fuse wire thing...

    Those of you with TPMS, how do you identify which sensor is the problem? Our Rav4 TPMS light blinks for a while then stays on.

    Take it to the tire place and have them read them. They will know which one has the low battery.

    Or just be like me.

    I need to put sensors in... that blinking light drives me nuts. Could delete it. But it’s nice for letting you know if you suffer a puncture on a trip before actually feeling it

    Yeah I fight with doing the bypass. Most likely I’ll end up just riding this out until I get my next set of tires and replacing them all at that time.

    Remind me, flashing constant is low battery/no communication and solid is low air right?

    See that's what's weird and why I asked. Ours flashes for the first maybe 30 seconds the car is started, then it remains solid. I assumed the spare was low because that's happened in the past but it wasn't low. None are low in fact.

    This is what new ones do. The older one will flash forever. New cars a dead sensor flashes for a bit then goes solid if there’s no coms from a sensor

    I don't understand why so many people are unwilling to have basic maintenance done to the TPMS. They run on batteries & the batteries need changed. Why would you not want such a basic & important safety feature working? People here spend thousands of dollars on suspension upgrades they'll occasionally benefit from, thousands on steel bumpers that are mostly a fashion statement, but a couple hundred bucks to redo 4 or 5 sensors every 10 years or so & the black tape comes out of the tool box. WTH?
    Am I the only person that had the TPMS system go off when a tire was going flat? I've saved 2 or 3 tires + rims over the years by knowing early I was losing air in a tire. Keeping that system functional has saved me money & bonus - no annoying dash warning light.
    I don't get you guys dragging your feet & cheaping out on this issue.

    You are making too much sense here NUDRAT. I always remember this one guys thread on this site about this same issue you bring up. I loved reading it when he first put it up about 2 years ago. Should have book marked it so I could post a link. It was titled something like ‘I don’t understand’. Lots of butthurt ensued. Awesome read! :rofl:

    If you can’t feel a 70 or 75 profile tire going flat, you shouldn’t be driving.

    My thoughts, they’re like a back up camera: Neat but expensive tech being applied to something as easy as turning your fuckin head around.

    It’s one of the reason new trucks are $50k.

    I'm guessing you're talking about all the guys that want to rip theirs out. I'm actually trying to fix mine. My questions come out of ignorance as I know nothing about the TPMS and this is the first time in 9 years we've had any problems. As soon as I figure out what I need to do, I'll fix the sensors.
