    Awesome transformation! Looks fantastic. I think I prefer the black mirror caps.

    Oil change and installed fumoto. Forgot how much I hate the stock skid. Need to go find that cheap TRD knock off I saw mention of somewhere on here.

    In the fall I sprayed the Tundra and the GX with PB Blaster Surface Shield. In the spring I wipe off all the crap it collected from the winter. So Today I wiped down the Tundra. I just use a little WD and some old micro fibers. I know I don’t need to wipe it down, but I can’t stand seeing all the road dirt sticking to the surface shield. It also gives me an opportunity to check everything out. I think it looks pretty good for being through 3 Pa. Winters

    Finally got warm enough (and stopped raining for long enough) to get the Ecoological bumper, grille, and bulge overlays installed. Much better without the chrome!

    Looks great! It’s amazing how much this transforms the truck into a more modern/streamlined appearance.

    Man I am on a role today. After I did my windows auto & led master switch and moved to the drive door handle, now did the dashcam which nicely plugged into the mirror via this slick power adapter. For the dashcam I went with the VIOFO A119 Mini 2 as I already have 4 of these and they hold really well in Texas heat. Wish the power adapter was black. No idea why they made it white?

    Changed the oil and installed a new winch/bumper today.

    I usually go with 5w-20 Mobil 1 in the summer, but saw some tests that showed Castrol GTX full-synthetic was a bit better, and cheaper, so grabbed it. I didn't notice that I had mistakenly grabbed 5w-30 until I was pouring the second jug in. Truck seems to be running fine, if not a little quieter under the hood.

    Had a new Driveway installed and the 3/4 ply helps distribute weight so the tires don't leave indentations in the driveway.

    It turned out I'm old enough for health issues to have their own opinion. Made it to the woods, slept over and crawled back to base, filled up with Ibuprofen :( Very unfortunate. The woods are flooded, the trails are all washed out, frozen soil does not soak in the abundant water, has two inches or watery mud on top and ice beneath, i.e. could be the perfect offroad trip.

    I literally had 15 seconds of "offroad" situation (cross-drain culvert collapsed, the road got washed out waist-deep) where frame flex and suspension travel would matter, the truck made it like is wasn't there. But I'm sure it would made it even with the sway bar attached. It did it many times.

    Not sure about the future of the sway bar. I learn towards installing it back. It certainly gives more relaxed highway driving experience. Especially when it's windy.

    Also found out that my cheap aftermarket rear leaf shackle bolts froze in the bushings, and their also stretched a bit, so the leaf packs move side to side a tiny bit. That certainly does not add to road manners.

    Going to replace the stock leafs with higher rated Dobinsons and greasable bolts and perhaps re-orient sway bar 90 degrees, so it does not act as anchor in deep mud and snow.

    @therealjonwick my wheel info is 20x9 5x150 offset 12. How I know? I had to buy a full wheel/tire as a spare in replacement of the oem "donut" which I dont need anymore. 275/60/20 fits in there nicely!
