    Well University officially "shut down" as of midnight tonight. I'm essential but not completely so I'll be called in 4hrs 2 days a week. Fortunately normal pay applies for 40 and if they change it I've got almost 1000 hours of PTO.

    It can't ever really shut down since we've still got some students on campus and someone has to check on building systems.

    Whenever the temp gets above 32* for more than a few days, we plan on doing something like this.

    This looks amazing. Nice work.

    Already have the rock.

    Ok. It's time we had a real discussion about this. People should be able to voice their opinions on matters that involve our trucks. What Jon said is true. People dont make a lot of shit for 1st gens. That's why we have the sticky for the armor! @ColoradoTJ come on man, you may not be a first gen guy but you gotta see the writing on the wall. Nobody makes shit for us compared to 2nd/3rd gen guys. Jon got a bit tired of it and blew a gasket. (At least he didn't have a ¾ torque wrench ( FaF reference, sorry.)) But you gotta realize, as first gen owners, most of us don't give a fuck about saying things that offend people, doing things that offend people, or just driving trucks that offend people. In general, (man I feel like the guy from breakfast club), we dont care about offending people. We say what we feel, an consequences be damned.

    I guess your membership will be a short one. Your call man. I sure hope you stick around.

    I often wonder how many people have actually read the COC.

    https://www.tundras.com/threads/tundras-com-code-of-conduct.54/

    "The atmosphere at Tundras.com is meant to be welcoming and friendly to anyone who visits. Therefore, the staff of this site have laid out the following guidelines:

    Use of offensive and inflammatory language, discussions or content targeting an ethnic, political or religious group, gender, sexual orientation, name calling, and humiliating or bashing members is prohibited in the forums. Political discussion, talk or displays of reckless driving, street racing and excessive speeding are also not permitted here. Posting links or information for the purpose of pirating or illegally obtaining products is also prohibited.

    Any political discussion or images will result in a 30-day ban from the site.

    Personal attacks or threats against other members will not be tolerated and will generally result in expulsion from the site.

    Any link pertaining to a Crowdsource fundraiser links are not permitted without prior approval by the staff

    Fundraising accounts should be for legitimate needs (mainly life/safety contributions. House lost in fire, medical care, etc.) The reasoning for this is the staff have recently noticed someone create a "GoFundMe" account at the reasoning of ""Saw another Tundra member doing it so I figured what the hell why not lol." This is NOT a GoFundMe forum and we are not about asking for handouts. This applies to any fund raising means as well; such as raffles, lotteries, etc.

    Should you have reason to take issue with a thread or post content, please discuss it with the Site Administrator or Moderators. Do not feel obligated or empower yourself to deal with the issue on their behalf. Such action will not be tolerated since it quickly spins out of control and the consequences are irreversible. Such unwarranted action almost never remedies the issue but hurts and brings disrepute to all members of the site.

    Images or discussions that are questionable or sexual in nature DO NOT belong on the forum. A vast cross section of people browse this site from their places of work and/or homes where co-workers or family members are nearby. These members should not have to worry about potentially embarrassing images appearing on their screen as a result of careless posting.

    Any violation of the guidelines set out above will be dealt with by the moderators at their own discretion, including permanently banning members who decide to go against the rules and spirit of the site"

    Let's all just take a step back and let it go. @bmf4069 you're a good friend but none of us need to fall on our swords to save Jon. It's not gonna do any good. If you get banned then the 3rd gen guys will slowly take over this section. ;)

    A few observations from a Professional Hand Model:

    1) Lots of drama right now in this 1st Gen Section and the world.

    2) We have old trucks. If you want something made, then hire someone locally to do it custom and don’t bitch about how much it costs. Its custom and you are supporting a made USA product and a local business to your area. Been saying this repeated. It costs more for custom, but its unique!

    3) If a business doesn’t want to offer something, then why don’t you fill the gap and make it?:D

    4) I despise 1st Amendment stifling more than I do the commies/socialists infecting and weakening our Constitutional liberties, but on this site rules are rules you agreed to when signing up.

    5) Its been a good 2 years here on this site for me and I can’t keep up with everyones projects etc with all the new members. Glad to see everyone fixing their 1st Gens. I’ve learned a lot along the way and am very appreciative.

    6) I’ll be watching from afar from here out. I may not like your post, but just know I would if I could if I wasn’t working so hard on Wurrld Peas. BTW, the veggies aisles are very full even while everything else is out of stock. :monocle:

    So heres the deal. The only reason Jon was in the wrong is because of the CoC. It's kinda like if America goes tits up and bans ARs, a lot of us are gonna be criminals, but rightfully so. He had an opinion and voiced it. Prior violations be damned. That vendor was trying to make profit on a serious issue, and didn't have shit to offer us. What he did wasn't a perma ban offense. Nor a 30 day. It wasn't political, sexual, or offensive.

    The fact that he violated the CoC isn't in question. The CoC itself, is what's in question. This forum full of truck loving, gun loving, right wing people cant say anything that 99% of what the people think. Yall are catering to the 1% to save face. And for what? The 2 or 3 people on here that might get offended? Ban me if you will, but just know this: what has just started can't be undone.

    So I pulled my OE radio today to install the radio I got from @FirstGenVol. (Thank you again.)
    Looks like despite being an AC SR5, I still have a backseat amp to deal with. #hooray
    My googling has led me to believe I need a Metra 70-8117 to bypass the amp, but it appears to me the 70-8117 needs an adapter to plug into my new stereo. What a colossal PITA. Not having Bluetooth sucks. The stereo sounds like the poops if I turn it up loud enough to hear, so I know this current configuration isn’t long for this world.
    As I’m not super keen to re-wire the whole GD stereo system from scratch, I would really appreciate some help here.
    The stock radio is a Fujitsu 86120.

    Can't you just remove the amp? I thought someone else did that. My 02 had a factory amp that I removed when I installed the head unit that I gave you. Sound actually improved without the amp because of the new head unit.

    Were my amp in the dash, yes. But mine is under the back seat. So the ‘workaround’ is a bit more complex.

    True, but the backseat is easy to remove. Your call though. Good luck either way. I won't be offended if that stereo doesn't work. Just pay it forward.

    They’re expensive for the one piece liner, but I would definitely do a liner. I didn’t and that’s what I spend 90% of my sweat doing; trying to make it waterproof as possible. We already loose A LOT to evaporation, I didn’t want any more going into the ground. One day in the future, I’d love to do a big swimming hole pond in our back yard. I’ve read lots of cool articles and seen some really cool ones. No chlorine to burn you or your kids eyes either, the dogs can get in and not overrun the chemicals, a awesome little oasis.

    Got a guy in the Tacoma forum to print me some decals that are in the style of the older tacoma decals. Im not sure how great it will look but it was only $15 so we will find out.

    Also the 2wd sticker probably wont go on but it was already included in the template so.

    Ho Lee Chit... Read this if you purchased spark plugs on eBay.

    Some of you have likely heard of counterfeit Denso spark plugs from China. Well, they aren't lying. I bought Denso(or so I thought) iridium plugs for my wife's Rav4 around 20,000 miles ago before I startred hearing about the fake plugs on eBay destroying some engines.

    Folks, I narrowly avoided disaster. Look at these things. First of all, the center electrodes are just little nubs now and about 2x the required gap. But that's not the worst part.

    The tip of the ground electrode is split on 2/4 plugs. Who knows how long it would have been before pieces broke off.

    0322201151.jpg

    0322201118.jpg


    After comparing the new ones side by side and using online guides, you can spot the differences. These are definitely counterfeit.
    Fuck China!!

    I knew someone would notice that. My wife was failing as a photographer so I made her hold the spark plug. I swear!! :anonymous:

    My co-worker just replaced the motor in his Infinity G37x due to a fake iridium spark plug. The plugs were replaced at 92k miles and motor went at 112k. By the time it was all said and done, 5k for a high mileage used motor replacement. A remanufactured engine would have been 9k.

    In light of that mess, I purchased factory Denso plugs for my Lexus from a dealership in AZ for 89.00(6). My local Lexus dealership wanted 174.00.

    Dodged a bullet is right!

    Yes! I remember you mentioning that in the other thread. I feel bad for anyone not aware. I keep looking at these fake ones, amazed at their condition. I might share this in the other thread to get the word out. I'm also amazed her car was still running normal.

    Please do share with a new thread. It could happen to any one of us. A good used Tundra 4.7/4.6/5.7 engine is not cheap to replace.
