    One thing I did "NOT DO" today was make a purchase from Goose Gear. I hear all these things about how good the company is and when I asked if I could get an extra door added it was

    Tony
    Thank you for your interest in Goose Gear products!
    Here are the two 2nd row seat delete products we make for your Tundra - We make a 40% Passenger side plus a 60% Driver side - You may install one side, the other side, or one of each for a full 100% 2nd row delete. https://www.goose-gear.com/collecti...-crew-max-second-row-seat-delete-plate-system
    What would it cost to have the lower piece to have the ability to access he areas that are now available for storage?
    We only offer one hatch style located above where passenger feet would have been in the lower floor area.

    Twice I contacted them and the answer was the same both times. I am not a woodworker but after getting shut down twice I am having a hard time with spending $2,040 plus shipping. It is like I asked to have to totally different design done, it is a door

    Washed the truck Saturday (damn aphids are pooping all over it) & today I picked up new oil filters, wiper blades, and diff/xfer case crush washers. Will probably do an oil change over Thanksgiving break and then the diffs over Christmas break when I'm closer to 30k on the odo.

    I used the griots ceramic spray as a drying agent again (followed by a light buffing to remove any over spray). For a very small amount of added time, I really like the end result.

    I was looking to hardwire a Viofo 129 Pro Plus into my 2015 1794 with fuse taps, unfortunately I tried BK/UP LP for constant and S/Roof for ACC but that just drained the battery instantly and scared me shitless for a few minutes. Gonna have to try something else!

    Replaced the air filter and cabin filter. Here is a pic of the cabin filter. Air filter was not as bad. I'm thinking about tackling the spark plugs, but a couple look to be tricky to access, so not sure I want to do this myself.

    Today;
    Checked the brakes.
    Adjusted park brake.
    Tires rotated.
    Checked diff and transfer case oils. Transfer case needed a bit.
    Tried to get the oil filter off, but all my oil filter tools are not good enough so need to order a good filter tool.
    Installed a higher rear diff vent hose just in case I have to get the rear into the water to launch/retrieve the boat.
    Built a console divider out of some plastics I had laying around.

    Cheers

    You asked for something custom, they said no, and you are upset about it. About sum it up?

    Just because it’s a door to you doesn’t mean it’s not enough of an undertaking for them to make it not worth it, even if they do charge you more. Custom isn’t always worth the hassle.

    I put in a set of LASFIT Switchback fog lights, replacing the old halogen bulbs in my 2015. Holy crap what a difference they make! Now I need to order me some 2021 head lights.

    Place is a rip off IMO. Ridiculous prices! Crazy what people will pay for convenience. I’m in the process of building a platform myself. Looking to get it all done for less than $250. In this case it is worth the inconvenience to diy, again IMO.

    The driver's side plugs are easy. The passenger side plugs by the firewall are easy once you move the interference in front of the plugs. That's a simple task that only required the removal of some mounting bolts and pulling the wires out of the way. I think I looked it up on YouTube University and found a guy that showed where the interference was and how to get around it. Replace the coil to plug boots while you're in there. Don't be afraid or intimidated by this one. You got this!

    Thanks for posting. Wow, that's impressive. Been trying to decide between the Pro and the Max (i.e., whether the extra coin for the Max is well spent).

    My process so far on these wheels, I need advice on how to proceed with painting the "ring" black. Masking off and spraying would be the best bet, but has anybody attempted hand paint?
    So far, I'm two weeks in and I'll give the paint job a 8/10. A few paint heavy spots but I think it'll hold, would like to add the black ring next and then find some new tires (285/75r18)

    Came up on 3 year mark and flushed the brake system with ATE Typ 200 using Speedibleed https://www.speedibleed.com/. Speedibleed made bleeding an easy task. Brake fluid came out fairly clean and not dark at the calipers.

    Great question. I didn't remove any white branding. Now you have me second guessing them. I'll check it out when I go out on lunch and report back.

    Pulled the trigger on some @RCIoffroad aluminum skid plates after some bozo on Facebook tried to rip me off on a used transmission skid sale with missing hardware and bracket.

    I believe their Black Friday Sale is on now if anyone is looking for a deal on some super beefy, well made skid plates.

    I have so much stuff that’s been sitting around needing to be installed from last Black Friday . I moved a state over and my second son was born so lots has happened.

    Here’s what I got done today: Royal tow hooks in red and Diode Dynamics hitch light with locking pin.IMG_2206.jpg IMG_2208.jpg IMG_2209.jpg IMG_2121.jpg

    Ok, for those of you that run EBC pads, did you guys reuse the shims or used the piston shim that came with the EBC pads? My rear ended up being stupid corroded and I was trying to see if local store had it, but if I do need it, I’ll have to go to the dealership tomorrow.

    Fronts are done with EBC yellow stuff and SDHQ SS lines.

    Also, for those of you that ran SDHQ SS lines, is this the proper placement for the copper washers?

    Happened to see the vendor in another thread just now. I couldn't get a configurator to give me the product without the molle option, so I'm not sure if it'll fit your needs, but thought I'd share.

    Actually, found out that the factory shims aren’t supposed to be used and to use whatever shims that came on those pads…

    I need to look at the center console and see if I can just get the rear window switch to pop into a hole I make in the console. I have not seen any single gang switch mount so I figured I better do something since I cannot roll my window down now. LOL

    Finished installing all the rotors, pads, and lines. Break in was 60>10 about 8-9 times before trac off started beeping. Went away a couple minutes later.

    The rotors look pretty even throughout.IMG_5564.jpg IMG_5565.jpg IMG_5566.jpgIMG_5567.jpg
