    That I'm not sure but make sure you order or snag all the mounting clips too. At this point they are probably getting really brittle. Do you not have any, or are yours just in rough shape? You can always bring them back to life with new paint.

    So they aren’t something which can be purchased as new parts? I was hoping for something along those lines. My truck came with SR5 flares with the chrome stripe. I assume a repaint means they would get destroyed. Figured I could do 3rd gen badging / stickers but the fender flares would need to be first gen.

    You'd want to call and confirm they fit your truck but it looks like Toyota may still sell flares. I'm not sure if they have the chrome strip or not.

    They do seem to look "good" though I kind of like first gen Tacoma fender flares more than 1st gen Tundra. I wanted to get non-chromey ones. Seems like a few aftermarket options too, all of potentially questionable looks:

    https://www.carid.com/2002-toyota-tundra-fender-flares/bushwacker-extend-a-fender-flares-758212158.html?parentsubmodel[]=BED+LENGTH|8'+2"+(98.2")+Bed

    Junkyard + new clips + repaint may be the winner if they aren't super hard to find... Blowing $1000 on new fender flares is probably a bit too ridiculous.

    Filled up twice today. You know you are riding on vapors when you put in a gallon and a half and the Gas Warning Light is still lit. Looks like tomorrow is the day for ‘Operation Bomba de Gasolinas’.

    Bought a New Jack Pump Lift today. Stoked. The old one is giving up the ghost after about 20 years. Hard to pump/engage. Multiple pumps with no movement. Might have air or old hydraulic oil in her. Anyone ever restored their oldie back after it becoming getting tired?

    Here is the new lift.

    Nope. Ended up with HF made in China. Needed something fast and this one was the best in terms of 3.75” low profile/quick pump to height/and top height up to 23.5”. All the auto stores today are sold out or have Mickey Mouse Versions.

    If I had more time to look around and shop I’d have done so.

    My wife got me a real nice Husky jack and it seems well made but I was disappointed when I saw it was made in China..

    Driveway's getting ripped up for fresh concrete and I felt bad parking her on the street for the week..

    I'm wondering if that might have something to do with male/female differences. I believe I've heard a few stories about female huskies being better at stuff like that. Our male would likely run and never come back.

    I have that one but just bright green. Its been great so far, I love the long reach and low profile. Plus the foot pedal is sweet.

    You can try bleeding the fluid in your old jack. I brought a jack back to life that way before, its easy but if a seal is gone it might be hard to find a replacement.

    Those Daytona Jacks have good reviews and they look sweet. Probably one of Harbor Freight's better products.

    Thanks. I might try bringing her back. What fluid do you use?

    I haven’t even research this yet. I do not think she is leaking as there aren’t any signs, but I’ll shake her down first. It’ll be nice to have two jacks if possible.

    my aluminum jack from them, 10-13 years old, has a leak and one of the pistons jams up, I kinda looked for rebuild kits, but I don’t think I found much, I’ll have to upgrade soon

    I’ve got the hf steel low profile long reach and have had it for 12 years, still works good. I imagine you’ll be happy with your new one.

    Awesome. The reviews looked pretty good on the HF site. Guys were saying great for their trucks and could be used on lower cars as well. I’ve never used a quick pump jack so this will be nice.

    I just talked to my father in law about that a few days ago. He said it wasn't to bad. If you have a quality jack I would definitely spend a dollar on o-rings and a couple more for oil.

    Yeah. I’ll look more into this and give the Company a call to see if they are still around. Jack has done me well for 20 years.

    11 Year old female husky.. If she gets off leash she thinks it's a game. Two knee replacements. Nope, she's staying on the porch these days.

    I had picked up a bottle of hydraulic fluid from Home Depot, it was liquid wrench for jacks and was around $5 or so.

    @FrenchToasty if you're looking for a jack these are really good and priced well. They go on sale every other month it seems like.
