    It's not OEM but I'd consider tucking a tilt switch behind the hood insulator as a simple stealth option.

    I've gone ~145 in a car, maybe 100 on a bike.
    You guys are all nuts.

    @Grumpy74 - Man, I had to turn off the computer after reading your post. You're living my worst nightmare. I hope what little support we can provide through these interwebs will help you persevere.
    Keep your chin up and put one foot in front of the other.

    I agree with everything that you said, except about the energy sources. None of them are healthy or unhealthy, the foods themselves are what matters. Most "man-made" oils (fats) are terrible for you (i.e. corn oil, Crisco etc). Natural oils like, coconut, avocado, ghee from grass-fed cows, etc. etc are great for you. You can live quite healthy with very little carbs, but if you try doing the same with very little protein or very little healthy fats, you will have a myriad of health-issues. A grass-fed lean steak is MUCH healthier than a loaf of bread or any food made with "man-made" oils/fats you buy at the grocery store. The modern diet is too heavily weighted to low nutritional value/high-calorie simple carbs and "man-made" oils/fats The absolute worse foods are processed sweet foods that are also high in "man-made" oils/fats...if they are fried, that much worse.

    I'm a big believer in fasting/intermittent fasting. For reference, I'm in my 50s, 6ft, 175 lbs, bodyfat around 13-14% and would be described as an "athletic build" and other than a 3 year period in my twenties have always been significantly more active than the average person. I've been intermittent fasting for 5+ years. I've never been more than 5 pounds overweight in my life, so for me it's for the increased health benefits which are many aside from weight loss as you said. M-Th I rarely eat before 1PM (usually 2PM+) or after 7PM (the exception being Friday, I will eat as late as 9PM). I don't think it's good for the body to become too accustomed to a schedule so, for the past two weeks, I've been doing OMAD (one meal a day), which is really dinner at 5:30 and grazing till 7:30-8. Sat/Sun I generally don't eat till 11:30, then again at dinner and I will eat a "treat" in the evening as late as 10-11. Still less than a 12 hour window. Also, I've been throwing in a 3-5 day fast every 3 months, but I'm overdue for that by about a month. I do not attempt to follow this while on vacation in any way, but it always ends up that every day on vacation is like the weekend...except there is significantly more consumption of Alcohol. I'm a 6-8 drinks a month and 2-4 drinks a day on vacation person. I do drink coffee in the AM, no sugar, 365. :)

    There is no food I want to eat that I don't. That includes, breads/cakes/cookies/oatmeal/beans/honey/maple syrup/sucanat etc etc. My key, is EVERYTHING in moderation and the QUALITY of food. I NEVER eat breads/cakes/cookies that come prepackaged at a grocery store. I never drink flavored/sweetened soda. I'm big on fizzy mineral water. I will on a rare occasion eat a restaurant dessert, but in most cases I skip it and have my sweet treat at home that I've prepared or high quality ice cream. We bake our own long fermented sourdough bread (and cinnamon rolls), we soak ALL our grains/legumes in whey or lemon juice for 12 hours+ before preparing them to eat. Our motto in homemade deserts is generally cut the sugar by 1/3 to 1/2 and you get more flavor from the actual dessert. Never skimp on cream or butter. All our meat/dairy products are grass-fed. You are what you eat does not only apply to you, it applies to the food you eat as well. The nutritional content of the fat of a grass-fed and/or pasture raised animal is significantly different than one raised on grain.

    I cannot recommend this book enough with regard to changing one's outlook on food.

    https://www.amazon.com/Nourishing-Traditions-Challenges-Politically-Dictocrats/dp/0967089735

    And I have met Dr. Bert and recommenced his book to many people trying to lose weight and the ones that were really committed all have lost weight and kept it off...

    https://www.bertherring.com/ac/fast-5/

    For anyone interested in intermittent fasting, but you prefer watching to reading, I highly recommend this video...

    https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x370lox

    And for a video on the benefits of straight-up fasting, I highly recommend this one...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4TdlGagQ5M




    TLDR version....limit your consumption window (trying to lose weight, restrict it more), switch up that window on a semi-regular basis, 95% of the food you do eat should be high quality, nutritionally dense. Enjoy life...and that includes eating. :thumbsup:

    I saw an interview of a 101 year old lady on her birthday. They asked her the secret to her longevity. She was still witty and spry in her old age and gave the classic good genes which is true, said she liked bourbon and bacon and other pleasures of life. But the one quote she said that I still like to use when someone gets a little too crazy with anything in life, good or bad was "everything in moderation, even moderation". You get one shot, don't screw it up by being too crazy or by being too boring. Most of all, you do you, and be nice. It's free.

    Well I'm home after a long run that had zero planning whatsoever. I did a few hundred miles to Arizona and back barely touching any pavement. I pushed the truck pretty dang hard and I am impressed with how well it did; I was not let down at all and I easily could've pushed harder if I wanted. As far as I can tell I only broke two things on the truck and they're minor easy fixes. This has probably been one of the more enjoyable runs I've done in awhile. Maybe I'll edit some GoPro footage and post it? Made sure to keep it running as much as I could.

    Campsite night one:

    Tundy (2).jpg

    Natural spring not too far from the campsite. I was hoping to see some bighorn sheep or something since there was plenty of water. I hiked along some of the sheep trails but no luck. They're elusive and it depends on the time of the year. I think I may have seen one later in my trip but it was moving way too quick to tell.

    Campsite night two, on the Arizona side of the Colorado River.

    Tundy (13).jpg

    Light strips in the cab work great!

    Tundy (14).jpg

    Tundy (17).jpg

    Here's my shower setup. Pump collects river water, then I put the solar shower bags on my truck hood. I use the pump to shower as well. Water easily got over 90 degrees and felt good. Valves let me control the water pressure and easily shut it off.

    Went further into Arizona, did some small hikes to check out some mine shafts.

    Here's the carnage. Took a hit to the skid plate and sheared through one of the mounting holes. This should be an easy fix either with the welder, or some oversized washers.

    Tundy (27).jpg

    My LSPV bracket broke. Zip tied it back up there for the time being. ABS light came on too so I'm thinking it's related? Haven't bothered to pull the code yet - it was actually very nice braking without ABS.

    My LSPV is ziptied up and I have no ABS faults/light.
    Might be damage #3.

    Yeah, I'll pull the code this afternoon and see. I looked over the sensors and wires but didn't see any damage, or notice any adverse effects to the braking.

    What we are lacking here is the "send it" story that accompanies these damages. Please continue..

    Got to work this morning to realize my passenger side headlight is burnt out...#annoyed.

    I have aftermarket stock housings that do great with the Phillips Xtreme vision bulbs so I not sure I wanna shy away or get into LED bulbs especially with stock halogen housings..

    Are you doing this solo? I'm curious what you do for comms/emergencies. My wife got me a Garmin inReach for my birthday but I returned it. I don't need to spend that much. I'm looking to replace it with a Zoleo Sat communicator instead. There are pros and cons to both.

    I keep a pre-programmed handheld ham radio (Baofeng UV-5R) in the truck for coms / emergencies. There's always a repeater within distance.

    Yes I'm way overdo for some underwear. I pray for my poor t-case anytime I go out. :rofl:

    Well, I (accidentally) caught air a handful of times. Nothing big, less than a foot. That didn't cause any damage though. These shocks eat up the desert no problem, like on a whole 'nother level compared to my old ones. Sway bar was connected the whole time and about 20 PSI in the tires.

    There were a few looooong stretches that had been graded at one point. I was pushing 70 on these no problem. I kept the truck out of O/D and it purred. My front end was like a couch but the rear needs work. I'm sure the vibrations on these are what ended that bracket.

    I didn't do too much rock bashing per se, but there were some less-traveled routes I ended up on. Rear bumper and trailer hitch got dragged a few times but what's new there? Longer wheel base can be a blessing and a curse at times. If I was in an AC or a Jeep, it's likely I wouldn't have taken that hit in the front. It did happen at a low speed though.

    Yes, I do stop regularly on the trail and look over the truck to make sure it's okay. I drove part of the route home on the highway and it drove fine.

    Also here's a bonus! I found Grandpa on the trail!

    I don't know much about ham. The idea/hope here is that someone is listening and will coordinate help for you?

    Yes. Almost all of my runs are solo. There was a Ms. D2M that tagged along sometimes, but let's just say I had to make an executive decision recently. I'm hoping to wheel with other Tundras more; I'm doing an outing with @Sunnier, @eccracer104 and others next month.

    A lot of preparing has gone into my truck for "wilderness" expeditions based on past experiences. I don't have to do much packing if I want to go on a trip. I feel like I've kept costs relatively reasonable for how much I get out of my setup - especially when I look at the tricked out Tacoma Broverlanders when I get groceries.

    I have a SpotX with a monthly plan. I also purchased the SAR/offroad recovery insurance they offer with it because it was so cheap per month. I don't step more than five feet from my truck without the Spot around my neck. I have it set to regularly send my location to family so they can check up if they don't hear from me. My parents have a Reach membership that will airlift you out in case of emergency and they put me on it. Other comms are a Baofeng and a 40w GMRS but I would rely on the SpotX first. I have a fire extinguisher, well stocked first aid kit, and protection. I also have multiple types of anti-venom/snake bite kits.

    I advise against solo desert travel until you've spent considerate amounts of time in the environment, in all seasons. I learned to navigate the desert on a dual sport which requires a lot of input. Bring plenty of water for both you and your truck. Get good at navigation. Get a mapping app that records your tracks.

    I'm am by no means a HAM guru - far from actually - I'll lead with that. But from my experience / the units I have, there are always frequencies delegated for emergency use (formal and informal) - LEO (radios can also be used as scanners), USFS, BLM, NOAA (for weather) as well as local channels operated by various groups. HAM radios operate on multiple frequencies and can push a lot further than a CB or 2-way (walkie), thus you can generally pick up a repeater anywhere. I don't think it's as much of a gamble or "hope" that someone responds - in my limited use with radios, there is always chatter on various channels. It's by no means a superior way for emergency situations, but I find piece of mind having a radio equipped in remote areas. Colorado offroad groups have also delegated various channels for regions / purposes, which makes use of the radios even easier for a dumb dumb like myself. There are also ways to really expand capabilities of HAM, send packets for tracking purposes, messages, etc. That's well out of my wheelhouse / needs, though.

    You are also required to have a technicians license in order to transmit on HAM. I don't.

    I've ridden similar terrain here in AZ in my SxS and yes, it's impressive you've done some of it in your Tundra. Your truck looks very well set up.

    Got lucky and spotted a few last January on a 3 day trip with 3 buddies. They blend in very well.

    Spotted a couple of burros too.

    The 3 day trip I just mentioned was about 400 miles of the southern portion of the Arizona Peace Trail. Gonna try to take a crack at the northern half soon before it gets too hot.

    I'm not a radio guru either and there's definitely a learning curve to it. You need a license for GMRS (which is different from the ham license). I will set my GMRS to scan GMRS/FRS when I'm solo on the trail in hopes of picking up others. Like you said, there's always chatter on various channels. Can occasionally chat with others and share your direction, trail conditions etc. There's a lot more to it, but yeah.

    Your explanation is better than mine. I often find people saying what I try to say / just assume people are following the convo in my head with me :rofl:

    Oh jeez you just reminded me THE FREAKING DONKEYS OMG. It's so creepy at night when they all start making noise. Mean SOBs too if they come in your camp (which luckily didn't happen this time..). That's so cool you got the sheep on picture though! They do blend in well as you said and I can never seen to get a picture. I want to do more of the AZPT eventually. Maybe Yuma to Bullhead City next.

    Don't know what part of SLC you're in, but corner canyon is epic!

    I'd got at least a 140MM travel bike. It's not much harder to pedal than n XC bike, but so much more fun downhill. Based on your moto background I think you'd be wanting an enduro -ish bike soon. Something you can take to deer valley, I-street, Moab and St George. Just stay away from puke hill; not worth it!

    TDS Telecom for internet. Hit or miss, but I had them while living in Golden and never had a single problem - the case at my new place as well, fast and reliable. Online reviews will tell otherwise, though. I don't need a lot for internet. Just document upload / VPN access for work, and casual gaming / streaming while not at work. Went back to Verizon for mobile.

    Comcast & Centurylink rule D-Metro. Especially with all of the fiber lines they've installed over the last few years. Though I hate Comcast/Xfinity, I absolutely despise Centurylink.
