    Took it for a short drive and 100X better than the PC :thumbsup: I have it set to Sport and 4 bars for now. Money well spent to me.

    Its paired with a SABM, AFE filter and an exhaust I'm trying to identify: https://www.tundras.com/threads/unknown-exhaust-on-tundra.136971/

    Added some shocks to the tailgate. The spring is mine was getting really weak and wouldn’t catch until the very bottom.

    No kidding. I just bought one also. My battery is stock 2019. Was actually worried it wouldn't start the other day after sitting for a week.

    You realize the "spring" is actually a shock that is inside the cavity behind the driver's side taillight, right?

    We went to Colorado for Xmas and the first morning the T4R would not even turn over. The wife told me before we left (literally right before we left) so I put the Noco GB70 and had to jump it 4 times total because things were closed for Xmas. That thing ROCKS!

    Let me start by saying this is a horrible post because I didn’t get a picture. BUT, I finally got a leveling kit on my 21 SR5. I cannot believe how much better it looks. Next up…new tires. I just started coming to this site this past summer and I can’t thank you all enough for all of the knowledge you share here. “Knowledge” in some cases. :)

    Whatever it is, it’s getting weak and needed some help.

    Interesting solution. Question - Why not just replace the failing part?

    I got mine today also. I read on YT that quite a few folks have the battery die 1 to 2 years into ownership. Is there a trick to avoid that? Some sort of cycled use yall perform?

    Lol. Here in Michigan, that failed part is going to be rusted. You try to remove the bolts and they gonna just twist off.

    ^That repair is going to be your answer to the broke gas cylinder.

    Go check out the Noco site, they have all this covered. Either on their home page or after you click Boosters, scroll down. They break down what each one can jump based on engine size.

    Have you heard of issues with the NOCO packs?
    It seems that NOCO is known for better marketing, but their are better products out there for less money.
    Just want to get the best bang for the buck.

    Can't say. But I have a Noco and when I get another of these devices for my other vehicle it will also be a Noco. Noco is well proven and worth it, they hold their charge really well too. Do your research and if the other one seems reliable, try it out and post on the forum so others see and it gets more traction.

    I did a YT search to answer those questions. Not sure about long term quality, had read in the comments that a lot complained the unit wouldn't charge after a year, regardless of use.

    I bought one and will see how it goes.

    I try and remember to bring mine in and top them every few months, haven't had an issue with holding a charge though. I've had the one in our boat since 2019, no issues.

    Project Farm on YT has done awesome reviews on a bunch of these jump starters.

    I'm with you. The nico units are nice, but they are just a lithium ion jump pack. There is a 1000 different styles out there.

    I think the nico units have an odd shape, so I got one I like better off Amazon.

    DBPOWER 800A Peak 18000mAh Portable Car Jump Starter (up to 7.2L Gas/5.5L Diesel Engine) Portable Battery Booster with LCD Screen (Red) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077HY7SFJ

    I like the storage box it comes with, too.

    Mine is the 3000 version and it turns over the 5.7 with ease.
