    I went ahead and ordered parts for 4 kits. I'm waiting to see how many brackets I will need to order because some people just want the bracket itself. I'm going to order the brackets next Sunday based on the list on the 1st page. 2 kits are already spoken for. It will be a few weeks before I can ship them out.

    Does the nut on the back of the horn come loose or is it permanently fastened with red threadlocker? I'm afraid to break something.o_O

    Shouldn't break on a 2019. If you have a small impact like a dewalt use that. The vibration will knock it loose.

    You shouldn't need to loosen the bolt directly behind the horn, just the bolt fastening the horn bracket to the truck.

    No, my parts are in Calgary, next wk hopefully. Still messing around with mounting the cooler as well. When there's no manual you start second guessing yourself.:monocle:

    If I could rotate that back bracket it might help me mount it away from my cooler. I may have to cut the wire and extend over to the other side below the R hand horn.

    Just started to mock mine up yesterday . Finding optimal positioning and spacing isn't as easy as one would think . (Please excuse the filthiness of the truck )

    when I mocked mine up I ended up rotated 90 from your pic. Then drilled holes for the hoses in that plastic wind dam.

    Yes I initially wanted to mount it horizontally but I couldn't come up with a very good mounting solution .
    Which cooler are you working with ? Mines the Hayden 679.

    Nick, I'm working on something for my B&M cooler and I'm wondering how wide you made the frame that your cooler is bolted to? I see the stem is 2 1/4", the frame appears to be less than that. Also with only the two mounting points is there much side to side movement in yours once she's bolted on? Thanks.

    The frame around the cooler is 1.5" wide. There is no side to side movement however, the back and forth movement on the left side of the bracket is very minimal if you apply force since I use a stainless steel spacer to lock it in real good. I tested a rubber spacer originally and it gave the bracket way to much back and forth play.

    Thanks for that.:thumbsup: Did you drill those holes yourself in the ss? I remember trying to drill some once and it was no fun.

    No, the brackets I sell are CNC cut with a very small tolerance.

    All kits have been reserved. I didn't expect this much interest. Looks like I may have to order some more parts and make more kits.

    You were giving up too quickly but expect another slow down when the covid ramps up again. Once we're though with covid you should do well.

    read through the whole thread and would like to have some input:


    1. Ruggybuggy is the only that tested with a 19+ towing a big trailer, he got 240-245F pan temp in a 75F weather. which means it would of gotten much hotter in 110F weather.

    2. Jordoncloutier lives in Albert Canada, can't possibly understand that some of us (I lives in southern California and tows in 115F weather for desert activities). but glad he came around.

    3. transmission temp is worst in stop and go traffic. So having a fan on the cooler helps tremendously if you live in area that has stop and go traffic. For us in Los Angeles area, it is 2-4 hour of traffic leaving LA basin on Friday afternoon traffic.

    4. Want to thank Op for putting up with a lot of craps in this thread, and did the research. Please keep up with sales of the kit, many 19 and 20 owners wont be comfortable with the kit until warranty expires.

    I was going to order the kit but the border is still closed. I found the thermostat on Ebay and it should be here this week. I ordered the two small rubber hoses from the thermostat and the steel line from Megazip but it wont be in until mid July. My cooler is the Harden and purchase doe Amazon. Should be ready to go by the end of July.

    My parts from Sparks arrived yesterday, GST and a $10 fedex handling charge was all I had to pay when it arrived. I have a b&m 70274 and kinda had a mounting setupo_O but wasn't real happy with it so my son who works with revit ( autocad) is coming out on the weekend to help me with a mount similar to Nicks. Hopefully If it goes well:fingerscrossed: I'll have it made next week and will let you guys know how it goes.

    First thing I'll do is attach the mount/cooler and go for a long enough drive to make sure there's still good airflow and the coolant temps aren't any higher. Right now mine seem to be anywhere from 195-205 empty.

    Has anyone else installed a trans temp gauge into their trucks ? I'm working on installing one myself . Just got the gauge mounted for now . Haven't wired or installed the sensor in the pan yet . IMG_20200623_194608.jpg

    I have been doing that but it drains my phones battery quick, and ties up my phone for making and receiving calls . Since my truck Is my Daily/Tow vehicle I prefer a dedicated permanent gauge . Plus Its a shame Toyota did away with a trans temp gauge . Plus the Autometer Sport Comp 2 gauge is very similar to the OE led back lighting and the trim ring matches the rest of the interior accent :thumbsup:
