    Forward looking camera, Stub Antenna, 3M clearshield. A few other non lifted items.
    My 18 Tundra with 30K is still original, I was thinking it would be good for awhile yet. We have two 2016 cars with 70K and 26K miles. All are original, but I did put a battery tender on one 2016 m235 as it sits during the winter months sometimes. I’ll be replacing the 16 batteries this year. Well at least one (16 m235 convertible) as it is reading a lower voltage but no dash warnings. My brother has the record, 13 years on a basic Tercel years ago. His Tercel was never garaged.

    You 2 need mounting brackets in the bed that face outside the truck. Mount 2 jet engines on those brackets and recreate your profile pic with those jets wide open. Pic should be snapped at dusk from an angled rear side vantage point.

    I'd do 2 separate shots. One high definition and another with more exposure for that streaky look. (I'm not a photographer so I'm probably using incorrect terminology)

    You'd break the internet. (At least this site.)

    I'm 100% serious.

    Sell posters. Little kids would go nuts fir a rocket truck. I'm sure there is a jet engine hobbiest near you. I see lots of YouTube channels power stuff with them for fun.

    For you it'd just be a sick pic.

    Center console was removed to put AJT stuff on. The red rings on climate were a bit tougher to exchange, but look nice. Not your cheap stick ons. You remove the original parts and assemble the new. The knobs were easy, the start button a little tricky. The Steering wheel was the toughest, by tearing it down. Good directions and went smooth. My wife bought stick ons for her 4Runner but they are bad, she now wants me to do the same. Door handles are great!

    Bought a knock-off onboard twin compressor from Amazon to save about $200+, and a "budget" mount from eBay (it's actually a great mount; clean cuts and holes, and smooth, even powder coating). On the money I saved for both, sprung for a premade 4-way set-up from Thor's; could've probably pieced it together cheaper, but liked the fact that it came all assembled in its own storage bag. Solid construction with kink-free hoses. Put a "stop watch" to it...about 3:20 for air down from 37 PSI to 20 PSI, and 5:15 for air up from 20 PSI to 37 PSI. Not really sure how that compares to a legit ARB unit, but definitely good enough for me, especially since some of both times was taken up by me opening and closing the valve during deflation, or turning the compressor on and off during inflation, to check PSI. As I do it more often and get the "feel" for when I'm close to fully aired down or aired up, might be able to trim off a few seconds for both. Compressor didn't get too terribly hot...the manifold that came with the Thor's setup that's connected to the couplers and PSI gauge got pretty warm though. I'm going to keep an eye on the compressor and report back if any issues. I like it so far though...really nice to only have to run the + and - to the battery; since it has its own on/off switch on the top of the compressor, no need to attach the other wiring harness which would go to the provided remote switch. I elected not to get a standalone manifold, or a tank, as I am not running air lockers, air tools, train horns, etc.; got the ARB hose coupling quick disconnect instead. I hope this help someone looking for "budget" alternatives.

    Custom Interior wrapped in Katzkin Leather.
    -Full black with black stitching.
    -Wings on seat: Bamboo (closest color match to Quicksand)
    -Perforated from lower back to butt. Benefits: Less slippery, less sweating, absorbs sound, temperature control, and it looks high end.

    Final thoughts: The leather is a tap firmer and thicker than cloth, but easier to wipe and clean. The fresh leather does make the truck smell and look new. I opt out on the heating and cooling.


    Next Upgrade: Rear bed step
    Bed step.jpg Any suggestions? OEM, AMP Research, Ebay brand, Amazon brand? Let me know what you have. Thanks.

    Love those seat covers! Looking great. You are super happy I'm assuming?

    Mind if I ask about the price?

    Definitely easier to clean. Adds a firmness to the seat, which is a plus on long trips.
    Yes, happy to have it. Matches the truck inside out. Not too happy about the price, but you pay for what you get. $2k installation included.

    OE and AMP are the same step. I haven't looked into the Ebay or Amazon brands. I went the OE route.

    Looks good. Interested what's recommended for the bed step. I definitely could use one too.

    Working on it.
    AMP makes the factory unit. I was able to pick up a factory one from Sparks for a couple dollars less than the AMP one. It is a pain to put in since you have to pop the plastic bump tread off the bumper. I use mine all the time.
