    I have a very similar setup. Have you figured out the best way to get the kayak up there? I muscle, and curse, mine up there every time, and say there has to be a better way. Just curious if you had any tips. Thanks.

    And keeping with the thread, I tried searching for a dash leak today. Driver's side. I had a new windshield installed in June and I believe it is the culprit :mad: Have to narrow it down though before contacting them. I just put my rubber floor mats in, so it's now noticeable.

    what about something like this...
    https://www.thule.com/en-us/water-racks/kayak-and-canoe-racks/thule-hullavator-pro-_-1685448
    my Aunt kayaks a lot and she uses some sort of lift assist to get her kayak on top of her SUV by herself, not sure what she uses exactly but it's something like that.

    Yes George @Tundra234 I am still alive. I replaced my 295/70/18 Toyo AT 2 with the 285/75/18 Kendra Klever RT. The 285/75/18 are a little heavier and you can tell when breaking. I had to get out the heat gun again as they had some rubbing but not too bad. They clear the body mount / cab mount by about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch. I see you have run out of mods these days. You can always come to California and help me with mine!!! Hope all is well.

    Nice. Yeah I'm running out of ideas now. My last 2 were adding rear AC and converting the back window from a manual to power sliding.

    It took forever to get but I finally got my new grill from Sparks. I am done modifying for awhile. At least until black Friday.

    I use a collapsable step ladder. Gives you much more leverage to get it up on top and also makes it easier to strap down when it's up there. When done. fold it up and throw it in your bed.

    This may be after the fact, but Fumoto does have an adjustable position valve available:

    Oh damn, I didn't even think of waiting to see if they'd throw out any Black Friday or cyber Monday deals... I'm guessing they'd be advertising it if they were but oh well.

    What lift to you have? I want the same size tires but plan to get a 3/1 lift/level Bilstein kit first...hoping no trimming needed at that point.

    I have a 3.5” RC lift in the front. 2” ready lift blocks in the rear. I had 295X70R18 Dick Cepek fun country exp on. No rubbing. I did take front mud flap off beforehand. But, In preparation for the 35’s I did a bmc and flattened the pinch weld. Did I need to do that? Don’t know. But, I know I have room now. And I thought it was kinda fun cutting and grinding.

    Stock, with a few cosmetic mods.
    I think you’re right, seemingly no adjustment, so far anyway…

    That did the trick!

    PXL_20231123_143330958.jpg

    Now I feel much less nervous about an accidental opening (no matter how small those chances may be). I might even switch to a short nose valve next oil change to have it even better tucked up/clear of any potential bumps and bruises.

    Interesting, that would definitely resolve that issue, but I'm worried I'd be neurotic about adding another way for the valve to fail (through the swivel). I know it's a small chance, but I'm all about minimizing catastrophic risks. I think if I had a true lift, I'd probably go back to the plug, but as is I'd hate to dump as much oil as I did last change in a driveway.

    0C4F6973-FF71-49BC-AFC5-AE723E8586F1.jpg Friday I took off my 20” factory wheels with 275/55r20 tires and replaced them with 2011 Tundra wheels and new BFG KO2’s 275/70r18. The next day I found a guy selling a KO2 tire that was an exact match that I could use as a spare. I’d recently picked up and extra set of 18” wheels from a 2010 Tundra too so I had Discount Tire mount the used spare tire up on one of those wheels. This morning I pulled the factory spare down, sprayed the chain mechanism with PB Blaster and put the new wheel/tire spare in. I wasnt sure if there was a more fitting choice to spray the mechanism, if there is, like white lithium grease or whatever please let me know. It still looked to be in good shape and worked flawlessly. It’s only a 2018 model so I expected it would work fine though, but at least now I know it does. Makes me feel better. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    This is a good idea Rugerla, I've recently purchased a (new to me) 2020 Tundra and I haven't even checked the spare tire situation (I looked at it from underneath the vehicle, but I didn't lower it - the dealer said it was fine, but I definitely need to check for myself). It would be good to get that thing down and make sure it's useable if needed. And I have a spare can of PB Blaster as well.

    Yes, I’m glad I went ahead and done it. Also it let me know that all of the attachments were in the Jack kit as well. It was really easy to do, more so than some other vehicles I’ve done this on. This quick chore this morning will make me feel better on a trip knowing I’m prepared. Hopefully I never need it!
