    I'm on 33s and getting 17 mpg highway, probably 14 city.

    :duel:

    Even with 4x4 I don't think your mileage should be that low. How's your tire pressure?

    Did your hood clear with the chip test? Which chip did you use?

    Not yet but there’s about 5” of clearance when the hood is down but not latched. Should have plenty of room, if not i can drop the legs another 1/2”.

    It would bug me blocking the p/s res.


    I really want to get an aluminum p/s res made and relocate mine to open that spot up.

    This is where mine was going, it's the best place under the hood in these trucks. The power steering fluid cap can be removed from my mock ups, but even if not, pfft. I've never opened it myself.

    You can get it to clear, but it’s tricky B13D0FAB-25D9-4EA8-8550-2BC81641A0DE.jpg

    ^ The best spot. But, if you are willing to do an apparent shit load of changing things, this is OK too.

    I’ve opened that res up once in 2 years. I can live with it being blocked.

    In the interest of not spamming @2006Tundra too much, I moved over here - sorry bud.
    @daveeasa - I'll update with pics in a minute off my phone. They are - big ARB harness/cable through firewall to breaker. #2 from there and to battery. A start on inline fuses.
    I can see where the breaker could just be a block, and the inline fuses could be that (have to look back) block fuse.

    I'm just south of LAX and took note of the price this morning at the Chevron that is closest to me and higher than most. $5.59 (87). I'm afraid to look tomorrow.

    I am well stocked on metripack should we need them for ARB shenanigans.

    Good timing. This site is like Google listening to our keystrokes. I haven't spoken ARB that I remember except to you and @Casper421 before today. Holy smokes, If you aren't showing ARB compressor today - you aren't living. Yew!
    Admittedly, these other guys have ones that turn on, LOL.

    I noticed your PS reservoir is actually level. Mine from the factory came cocked to one side. Off level by 1/4 inch for some reason.

    Can we talk LCA bushings? OEM, Moog, Poly (siberian). I like the idea of poly, but wondering if they are too stiff? This is for the Sequoia which is 90% long distance road trips with fighting kids.

    Tightened my U Bolts yesterday to 98 Ft Lbs. They definitely were not Torqued all the way, got several good turns on all 8 bolts! Thanks for the heads up from you guys to check on that.

    Gonna try to grease up the drive shaft zerks soon, the grease gun I ordered from Amazon did not work too well. Gonna have to try another brand out.

    I'll be damned. Fdx actually got them here early. And they're brand f'n new carpets, never installed.

    I think they're too light though, sadly. And there is one spot where it looks like they took some sun or touched against something that left a little bit of magenta on them.

    Hmm.....

    That 300# on road limit & 180# off road limit is for weight on it while driving.
    Parked the weight limit is higher assuming you aren't jumping on the RTT bed.

    Onboard and in the cab compressor installed and wired. Now it needs to be plumbed. Nothing crazy for now - but I did look at that ARB tank and it looks like it would want to fit in the DC jack location under the back seat. Maybe it doesn't want to fit and I'm using wishful thinking.

    Nice score! Mine were basically new too. And in garbage bags so no sun fade. I should have just kept them.
