    Yes, it has held up! I got the idea from photos of used /repaired headlamps that are listed on FleaBay.

    Typical "Toyota $hit" :monocle:

    446 popped it's ugly head as it is Fu@k!n' hot again... opened gas cap and reset it... rechecked code... All gone...

    Heat did not stop me from removing 'fish eye" mirrors.... don't mind them BUT these were fugly and scratched...Commercial hair dryers make quick work without any OOPS;) :anonymous:

    Even got a :thumbsup: from an F-150 original Harley-Davidson Platinum ( dam thing was :cool::cool::cool: ) his truck was rumbling at a traffic light when I pulled up and when we left the light the 4.7 kinda "rumbled" :hattip: No "Kid $hit" just two old guys showing respect :yes:

    Whomever owned this truck before me Spot-on spoiled it :fistbump:.... Complete new rear spring package,new shocks ,front and rear plus new throaty exhaust ...Luckily I can use $$$ for other "Stuff"

    Came home to see the front strap on my fuel tank hanging. It's now temporarily held in place by a ratchet strap.

    I don't mind buying OE parts but holy smokes aftermarket is under $60 for a pair of straps, Toyota is $150+

    Kidding me? Home Depot has a metal strap with holes for less than $20. Could scrounge a slat of wood to widen the footprint of a 3/4” strip.

    20$ sounds expensive, probably find it on the side of the road for free, just follow a plumber

    Don't threaten me with a challenge.

    Truth time: if it didn't need inspected I'd probably cut the extra off the ratchet strap and leave it.

    3rd mod- take off the running boards. Preserve them for when I actually need them.

    You'll never need those running boards, lol. First mod I did when I got mine was to remove those and sell them.

    Yep, thought about that too. Sell them to buy other goodies for her. Or if I hit the jackpot, trade for a set of sliders or skids or both

    I dunno, some folks tend to favor those over nerf bars. The paint-matched ones are a spendy commodity.

    The one advice I'll give you is this: Don't lose the brackets and bolts. They're 1,000% unobtanium, and I've seen more frustration here from folks who've bought them used trying to get them mounted because the brackets were missing, or the hardware was missing, or both. The brackets are unusual, some are 2-piece, IIRC.

    Bag it and tag it!

    Thanks for the advice! Bagged and tagged and the brackets looks pretty darn good considering it's an 04'. 100% all there

    We are brothers from different mothers given I have same. I personally believe your 4th mod should be to rid yourself of the wheel center caps and sell them to me....TIA :hattip:

    They really are, I left a bucket with Sedona buddies that were changing an alternator on the side of the trail, hopefully they came in handy for them.
    Someone at work got a weird off brand or from a different supply house and they were cherry scented but they smelled terrible! I think we all gave our buckets to the new guy……….

    If your kid is being an ass you can mount the fire extinguisher in front of their face and do some hard braking.

    Thanks for the advice on this forum (in general) so I made an account to be active here. This morning I got under and removed my driveshaft slip yoke and greased it up and now my chunking when I brake is gone! It’s been plaguing me since I bought it last year!
