    The heater core or something required replacing (though after diagnosis, it worked fine again. Just had the dealer replace it at their recommendation since 1. It was under warranty and 2. Never know when it could happen again)
    The airbag message came on the following morning after I picked up the truck. Drove it maybe 20 miles on Friday (day I picked it up) with no issue or dash alert. Warning came on yesterday morning after about 5 min of driving so I took it by the dealer. Service mgr said it was ok to drive I just wouldn’t have airbags if I needed them and to bring it in Monday for a look since his tech wasn’t there until then. I was fine with it. Drove it about 85 miles yesterday with the warning on, parked it for about 2hrs for my daughter’s basketball game, and started it up and the warning/ issue was gone. Drove it back the 85 or so miles to the house without issue or the warning returning.
    I’m thinking it was just like battery disconnected / reset thing from when they had the dash apart repairing the HVAC issue . If it pops up again I’ll take it to the dealer and let them give it a once over again.

    All manufactures use that style of lug nuts so your not getting away from it. Change out the lug nuts before they start to swell.

    Yep, and it's not just cars and trucks. I just had to replace the lugs on my travel trailer because of this.

    Just picked up a Topo Toppers “Badlander” on FB Marketplace, and took it to the local mountain. This is a significant upgrade to the RTT, and I can see this being our new ski lodge for this year’s short (East coast) ski season.

    When we replaced the tires on my wife's 2015 Ford Fusion last year at Costco the tire technician found me and told me that all of her lug nuts are swollen and should be replaced. Their replacements were solid, OEM appearing lug nuts. They replaced all 20 at a very reasonable price. IIRC they were something like $35 for the set of 20. At that time I inquired if the had replacement lug nuts for our Tundras and they do for about the same price.

    Is there a reason I wouldn't have the option to do this in a 2020 sport? It does't seem to be in the owner's manuel either.

    Cracked open the boxes to the Rago dash mount and the ICS lower mount. I will say that the ICS would have been a poor fit as the hole would have been all the way to the edge of the plate to match the Rago mount. I wasn’t a fan so I stopped being lazy, dug through my scrap pile and made my own. I’ll install this week. IMG_6198.jpg

    Made some progress testing the textured face switch blank. There’s a few minor tweaks I want to make - another test print tomorrow.

    Once I’m happy with the results, yes, I’ll put a batch up for sale. Working on a template for marking where to drill/cut out the console “tray” as well, since these are not through holes.

    Got the Morimotos installed as well as the Baja S1s. Baja in amber and wide/cornering configuration are surprisingly bright for the size! So happy with them.

    In contrast, not happy with the Morimoto headlights. Had issues with them blowing my turn signal fuse when I used the "flasher" non-DRL part I paid extra for. Subsequently, I don't have the sequential turn signals. There's also a plug I have no OEM counterpart for so..... yeah. For the cost, I truly expected a better install.

    Truck was in the Dirt Expo this weekend and I have been wanting/needing a proper bridle set-up. 3 soft shackles and 6’ 80k lb cheater rope with bag from Freedom Ropes for $120. Second picture is one of my old not cheap soft shackles vs. the Freedom bridle rig shackles for perspective.
