    having something to lift the tent is nice

    I also made my own using an electric hoist from Amazon, pulleys, synthetic winch rope for ATV, bearings, uni-strut and some brackets and shaft I made. I have a low garage ceiling so I needed it to lift at each corner and tuck up as far as possible. Just barely lifts high enough, then I use some ratchet straps for added safety while it just hangs there.

    I’ve been pining to get a 3rd gen. Idk why. Idk if it’s just the want for something new or what. But the kiddo and I had to do a mini road trip Saturday, and as we’re eating lunch, I fell back in love looking at it. I want to do something to it, but idk what. Maybe a new head unit and speakers.

    I already did. LOL. I went from the stock platinum wheels to the carved 5 spoke. It's a pavement princess so no need for a lift or heavy ass tires.

    But you have a Blazing Blue, you can't get that color and they have nothing close in the 3rd gen. Keep keep keep!!!

    Have you done any color matching on the interior? You can also paint the tow hooks blue. Since you have the color matched front bumper and center piece, it might not pop as much. On mine, the blue hooks were a nice pop of color against the black bumper. I also added blue lug covers to pop some blue on the wheels without it being too much and I was a fan.

    Otherwise, the truck looks awesome!

    Week late, but finally got my U748s installed.

    PXL_20240430_233836897.jpg

    I tried to measure the new ride height but I cannot for the life of me get consistent measuring points relative to the new angle of rake, but I believe the rear lift from stock is somewhere around 2.25 to 2.5. Gained about an inch and a half over the 1"block I had previously.

    Same, but my post install measurements are throwing me off. I didn't touch the front, but it looks like I gained a few tenths in the front, more so on the drivers side than passenger. I'm coming from the stock Toyota Leaf packs with a 1" block, so I assumed that the increase in rake is changing the angle of the wheel well lines, throwing off my my reference point for measuring.

    The only other explanation I can think of is that the Drivers Side lean was entirely due to the rear Leafs (especially considering I have the 38 gal tank). It does appear that the rear ride height is basically identical on both sides, so maybe that's it?

    A 38gal tank can change some height depending on how much is in it.

    I'd say colormatch your mirror caps and door handles. Oh, and Blazing Blue Pearl is THE fastest color out there!

    I took off the chrome for the black a while ago. IDK.

    And 8T0 is always the fastest. Everyone knows, just afraid to admit. LOL

    Oof... sucks but it could have been a lot worse. Time for a full front bumper when you get it fixed.

    It looks way worse in person but it's still drivable so I can't complain. I'm kind of surprised airbags didn't go off, I hit it at probably 50. First thing I saw after impact was the entire Toyota badge flying slow motion across the other lane haha

    Got my new Eibach rear shocks and RAS on today. At 10:00, when i started, I was telling myself, "You've never done anything like this before." By lunchtime, I was saying, "You got this!" Then I hit the rust bucket atop the drivers side OEM shock. An hour later, and the biggest pair of vice grips I had, I was back to "You got this!"20240507_145959.jpg 20240507_145940.jpg
    Used a skateboard to get my new-to-me Fuel Blitz rear wheels on. Pics to come once I get new tires mounted. Tomorrow, I tackle the front shocks. "You got this!"

    250,000 miles and always adding more :)
    Not really anything done to the truck specifically, but pops bought the boat he's been searching for for a very long time! Now it's time to sadly put the old one to rest as it just pooped out officially on the last day of summer last year :( 'Twas a sad day on Sunday bringing the old one from the lake to storage for the last time. Lot's of memories shared over the past 9 years. She will be missed!

    On a better note, couldn't be more excited to start adding things to the truck and boat to make them even better!

    When it comes to towing, any ideas to improve ride quality/handling are appreciated. Already have my eyes on the off brand TRD Pro rear sway bar from Amazon but am still looking for other ideas!
