    PSI of your machine and how far away do you keep the wand tip?

    I really don't see a problem with that unit.

    I've used lots of different LI jump cells. As long as they have the CCA needed, they all seem to work the same.

    I have one of the earlier versions from HF. The clamps are " hot" once they are plugged in. It does not have the safety circuitry that prevents the clamps from flowing voltage unless it detects 12 volts.

    I use that one more than any of the others. It works great for bench testing starters.

    It's a Simpson 3700 PSI pressure washer and I use the 25 degree tip on it for pretty much everything. As for the distance I stay from stuff it depends... Alternators, solenoid housing, exposed bearings, radiator, underhood foam, etc all deserve to be treated with a bit of care. Especially since at 3700PSI we are talking a stream of water than can quickly abrade skin. I stay "further" away from stuff like that and in some cases don't linger long or intentionally don't spray directly.

    In general I suggest starting by using a pressure washer on stuff you don't care too much about first to get a feel for things. I've been using them for a long time now on cars, trucks, tractors, motorcycles, sidewalks, grills, and houses. Trust me when I say I have learned the hard way a few times though now I consider them a valuable and time saving tool.

    Went for it. Best comfort decision thus far since sadly this is a road/worksite truck :)

    I’m probably in the minority here but there is zero way I could justify dropping that kind of money for ride comfort. A couple thousand bucks so it rides smooth? No way.

    Check the build link in my signature.
    Regarding question 2 - that’s how I do it.

    Yeah man, I get it. I had some tax obligations I had to sort out, effectively had to get things up to a certain price point. Either way, worth it in my case. Cheers

    My 2018 did not. I put in a Pop N Lock and it works great.

    Yeah, I didn't make my statement clearly. I had selected the locking tailgate as an option that Toyota added. I was just trying to say that since they added it to mine, which is a 2018, that kit should work too.

    How do you like the magnet?
    Any issues with the mount?
    Did you just recently buy that set up and if so, did you use a discount code?

    Having a yellow lab, that strip of carpet between the ESP and floor mats would irritate me. Before I got the husky liners that section of carpet was a pain to get the dog hair out of. Other than that it looks good.

    My wife's comment after finally hitting a trail with me for the first time in 3 years: "Well at least the $3k you spent on suspension was worth it."

    She about barfed the last time we went out before that. Night and day difference on the Icons over the Billy Pros with the Westcott lift.

    Curious about how you ended up with mismatched resis, fins on one and not the other?

    Good question, I asked the same. King told me for the "kit" that I have, all the non adjustable external resi's ship like this for the fronts. Who knows man. But, yes, it bothered me to begin with.

    Interesting, did you get them direct from King? Accutune and others show them both with fins, with and without adjucters.

    Yep, 2.5 VS RR CDCV front and rear with the RXT packs. Only thing left to do is buy the billet control arms and it’ll be a Stage 9 setup.

    I had this set up in my Civic and loved it so much, I replicated it in my Tundra. Mount and magnet are very secure and strong enough to hold a tablet if you want, yet can be removed very easily without any damage to the dash. I also like the adjustability of viewing angle.

    Sorry, no discount code.

    Sweet. I'm close to buying the 2.5s from Colton. Toytec is calling today to update the ETA on their (Elka) Aluma 2.5s. If they say April, I'm done waiting.
