    I’ve had this car waiting to move for a couple months now. The parts for it finally showed. Want to have it driving before winter

    Just finished up replacing the fuel pump and put everything back together and broke the connector on the fuel line and it's dripping fuel. Please someone tell me there's a way to replace the connector without having to replace the entire fuel line... I really really really don't want to have to drop the gas tank back down for a 3rd time. 20201018_154813_HDR.jpg

    Looks like it’s not clipped all the way on is all. The secondary latch is missing though

    Yeah the clip was jammed and it was the last thing I had to do and I it broke right off as I tried to push it on there. Is it possible to buy the connector seperately or do I have to do the entire line.

    I’m always creepin on campers for sale, but not sure if I would every buy one. But this last camping trip proved rather crowded in our 4runner, mainly the doggos. So I might keep a closer eye in the next year for DC shells around me for sale

    Haha. Well, they seemed to be the best option when I was looking. I went D-Series flood pattern. I still need to aim them better, but the output is awesome!

    I kinda know that feeling. I’m hoping to be able to camp with my kiddos with it.

    The lady I purchased it from posted it Friday. so I felt decently lucky to be able to grab it. Plus it’s my birthday today.
    Totally wished it matched but I won’t complain.

    Tacoma world has a cap trade thread for folks who want to change color/height/style.... Might start a cap trade thread & see if someone has the color you want.

    Had some fun redoing my driveway this weekend. Gave the old tundra a workout lugging this thing, plus several trailer loads of dirt. Driveway still isn’t done though...

    man... there is something about those wheels and the brush guard that makes me think of the old trucks i was surrounded by as a kid with my uncle.

    My Tundra chores today were simple but effective. I installed blind spot mirrors on my 1st gen, the kind that are adjustable. What a difference!
    Also installed a right side bumper step pad on hubby's 2nd gen (he lost it when he got lightly rear ended two years ago - that chrome shining through at the spot where the step pad was missing didn't bother him much but drove me crazy. But he loved the way it looks after I got it on and then rubbed some dirt on it so it matched the rest of the bumper (smile!))
    Also bought some touch-up paint but haven't used it yet...

    Deer guard, LED everything.
    Finally had time to tinker with my headlights again. I got them set pretty close to what I think is acceptable.

    I've passed 20 cars, and haven't been bright lighted yet. Also, I followed a Chrysler 200, and the cut off was right at the top of the trunk. Perhaps a little too high, but not blinding people in front of me either.

    Editing in the car count, spelling, and katana fan-less fog LEDS. I haven't driven it yet, but I do have to say that it appears brighter.
    20201019_042739.jpg
    As I suspected on the drivers side fog... one chip burnt out. I replaced both, but am saving the good one. For "Oh shit" circumstances.

    Supposedly Snug Top is the best quality of the big 3(subject to opinion of course). That one appears to be in really good shape and has more headroom which is less common. I'd call that a good buy. The camper shell is one of the most useful things I've added to my truck.

    Fixed the connector, there was some heat wrapped black plastic jammed into the connectors so I cleaned it all out put it back together and reconnected. Now I can officially say I replaced the pain in the ass fuel filter and retainer ring to stop my emissions codes from popping up. Let's hope the next 40 miles or so I can stop staring at that check engine light.20201018_132626.jpg

    Yep, definitely a late-90s to early 2000s look I’ve got going. It wasn’t necessarily my plan, it just kinda worked out that way. I don’t mind. :notsure:

    How does it do with power pulling that car? I figure that must be a solid 4500-5000lb load?

    my truck sure became gutless with the 285s. Hard to justify the $1500-2000 it would cost to regear.
