    Got my Coverking seat covers installed today. Driver seat was definitely showing some wear in the ol girl. Like the look and feel, but there is a bit of a squeak (neosupreme over leather) that I'm hoping will eventually go away. I'd like to figure out a way to cover the center console next, if anybody has any suggestions.20210913_113242.jpg 20210913_113227.jpg 20210913_081725.jpg

    What a coincedence, I just did my drivers seat as well. My seat is the exact same model and color as yours, but my leather was much more worn (but not split). I replaced the lower seat cushion and both seat covers (back and bottom) with new OEM ones (that by themselves are getting scarce). Seat back cushion is already discontinued for some reason, but mine was still in decent shape (lower cushion was destroyed though). The refurbish was pretty pricey, but the end result is very nice. The covers are a bit baggy, but I'm hoping they will like shrink a bit over time and fit more snugly. Also replaced the plastic shroud piece that wraps around the cushion (mine was pretty bad). It looks pretty good with my brand new stock replacement shift knob.

    Also, I had the original alternator replaced preventatively (my original 14 year old one was on borrowed time at 242k miles), as well as the water pump and all coolant hoses (except one I missed) and the back two that go to the tranny cooler feed pipe (very hard to get to). Idler pulley and bolt replaced, as well as the tensioner (and bolts for it). New thermostat housing and nuts also installed. Engine oil cooler was removed and inspected and reinstalled with new o-rings, gaskets and new studs/nuts (old ones were due for retirement). And of course, an obligatory oil change...a bit early, but better too early than too late...;)

    Old alternator...still works like a champ, but due for replacement

    Still lots of R&Ring to go. Still have to do the tranny cooler hoses, thermostat and pipe, as well as the windshield, front grille, driver's door glass, headlight enclosures and cab body mounts. Also replacing crusty front diff mounts as well with new ones that I'll have powdercoated. Front diff breathers are also on the list. I'd also like to replace the floor shift assembly, shifter cable and vapour canister (they are all wear items).

    I've got that exact same wear issue on my drivers side lower seat cover... Where did you source the seat covers from and were you able to get them by section or did you have to order the whole set?

    The back section cover and the bottom section cover are separate items and the bottom seat cushion is a separate item as well. Cushion and both covers came via dealer from Kentucky...get'em while they're hot, since they've been earmarked for discontinuation. Back cushion is already unobtainium (no longer available).

    Be forewarned....the seat covers are definitely NOT cheap. Mine were roughly $600 USD each. But they sure smell nice...love that fresh leather smell...:D I could've gone with cheaper aftermarket leather seat covers, but often aftermarket covers don't match the color of the other existing seat covers in tje truck exactly, so I sucked it up and got the OEM covers while I still could.

    710720C290B3 - Found this part number for the seat lower section cover at a local dealer. Is this the one you ordered?

    Curious, seems like an awful lot of parts to replace “just because”. Anything I should be looking out for / failure points on my 08 with 145k that I should know about? I’ve already replaced the radiator at 120k cause it had a small leak, and belt tensioner assembly when I did the belt cause it was causing a squeak when cold. Other than that, truck seems to be running just fine

    It's more "replacing wearable parts before they fail with new ones because it's already apart for another job". The alternator was convenient, as the water pump was being changed as well, allowing coincedental work since the radiator was already removed for the work, cutting down on total labour hours. As the system was drained, it made sense to replace as many coolant hoses as possible, given their age, especially the ones that are hard to get to when the water pump is in. Makes sense to do them while it's apart. The coolant hoses (and their rustable clamps) on the tranny warmer/cooler that are near the ground always concerned me, as they get pasted constantly with road grime. Engine oil cooler hoses are also down low (albeit under the skid plate). The oil cooler removal, inspection and reinstallation is strictly preventative...I don't want to spend substantial money to replace the cooler outright if not needed, but removal, inspection of its condition and refreshing of the o-rings and gaskets is definitely prudent after 14 years in a brutal climate. I'm not waiting for it to fail or leak before I act. The last thing I want is coolant in my oil or vice versa, or an outright failure due to something like corrosion or internal wear, so I'll gladly pay for the inspection and refresh. The tensioner and idler are known wearable items that are relatively cheap and were very easy to do when the belt is off and the radiator removed for the water pump work. The thermostat housing is plastic...and while it's tough, it and the thermostat itself were 14 years old. Heating and cooling cycles are often cumulative on such parts. And when a part gets changed, it's good practice to replace its fasteners as well.

    I'd much rather proactively replace wearable, high mileage items on my terms than on the truck's terms. It costs a fair bit of money, yes, but ultimately can save a great deal of money and massive inconvenience if something fails unexpectedly. It also allows control of the quality of the parts used, rather than be forced to use whatever junk parts are available out of desperation. Genuine Parts are often hard to come by here or they often take some time to get...neither of which is desirable.

    My main issue is that I only have small windows of availability to have work done, so I try and maximize the work I can get done when opportunities arise, especially now when the weather is still nice. I don't want to making frequent repair trips to the city on icy highways when it's -40 outside...;)

    Well done looks really cool. What are the details for the head unit? Sorry if I missed it previously.

    Not at all, I'll throw the links up. So far I'm very impressed with it, constuction feels good (althought I wish they had permanent mount screw holes on back like some of the other makers). The interface is very good, easy to use. It's got a whole load of options. I went with this one because it had an independent front cam and my research on it turned up mostly positives.

    Amazon.com: PORMIDO 12” Mirror Dash Cam with Detached Front Camera,Anti Glare Full Touch Split Screen HD 1296P,Car Backup Rear View Mirror Camera Dual Lens Sony,Super Night Vision,Parking Assistance : Electronics They also have a 3 cam version (+1 interior cam)

    I also added this because it looked goofy strapped to my oem homelink mirror:
    Amazon.com: Rear View Mirror Back Plate Panel + Mirror Dash Cam Mount Arm for Car DVR Instead of Strap : Automotive

    Or were you asking about the radio headunit? Post was about the dashcam but I just noticed you asked about headunit.

    I appreciate the details on the camera setup as well but I was indeed referring to the radio.

    Hah, np. Its a Chinesium headunit. I can talk for hours about these, but basically it comes down to Dasaita, Joying and about 20 other CHN manufacturers are all making/copying the same radio with minor differences in hardware/software. The one you see is one of the cheapest (150$) and an experiment to see just how cheap you could get one of these China headunits and still have similar function to far more expensive units. That particular headunit is a Navitree 9" 2gb ram/32gb nvram. Dasaitas and Joyings are 4gb/64gb and there are up to 6gb/128 gb units available. But as I proved to myself, 2/32 is more than adequate. But like I said, there are minor hard/software differences between the manufacturers.

    Pros of this particular unit:
    -Cheap as f%^$
    -Navigation works great (google maps, offline mode, maps stored in onboard memory). Can use other map apps, but most require internet.
    -Android apps/functionality works fine
    -Wifi works ok
    -USB connectivity/external drives work good
    -Touchscreen, tail/rev camera display works fine
    -BT to phone works ok
    -mp3 player and I think its a 6 band DSP work good

    Cons:
    -Canbus decoder to make headunit compatible with my godforsaken oem jbl system is wonky (seems to be common to most of the CHN manufacturers, even the Phoenix tesla screen I had for a short bit had similar issues) Could probably be fixed using a Maestro (but $$)
    -BT to other BT devices is wonky (still fiddling with connecting to my BT OBD reader)
    -Some FM band signal loss (could be just my unit, or this particular manufacturers design:notsure:)
    -No SIM card port (some other makers have this option if you want to set up cellular internet)

    So, overall, if you live in an area with good FM signal, don't have Toyota's cursed JBL system, and are fine with using your cellphone or home router for wifi internet... this unit is a hell of a deal :p

    I do like the sound of hell of a deal and I can tell you I’m tired as hell trying to make a decision.

    My truck luckily does not have the JBL system. It does have the rear camera in the rear view mirror so I am fine not having it on the head unit. I would like to retain the steering wheel controls. Wireless Apple CarPlay would be great but I don’t think it’s gonna be possible at this price point. Also I dig being able to read tire pressures from head unit but again tough with the “budget” friendly radios.

    Sounds like you’ve been though the gambit as far as these go. Is there one that really stands out?

    Wire brush ( w/ drill) and rustoleum. All new gaskets as well, when I first put the Dirty Deeds exhaust on I reused the old ones. They were terrible. Took care of the rust before I drive up to Maine.

    @PayItOff428 …my truck is a RCSB. The young man worked non-stop for 12 hours and 15 minutes (exterior only). He invoiced me $600 and I tipped him a $100. I have a friend in another town who had similar work done but on a DC model. He paid $1000. Looks better than a new paint job, in my opinion.

    Started the R&R of the idler pulley, belt tensioner and water pump....
    It started with me saying tomyself, "I like the way this is layed out. Ought to go easy!", and ended with "boy, do I miss the old inline sixes!!".
    It'll all go back togeather Friday.
    I'd not seen a "Radiator Fan Clutch Bearing Braket" before...It seems like it will need to replaced down the road a bit as it has a bit o play in it.

    OME Nitrocharger/2612 (front), Bilstein 5100s (rear). Vanguard roll bar modified (by me) to fit over Patriot Stealth retractable tonneau. Aftermarket halo headlights with HID, various LED bulb replacements. 17" Fuel Blitz wheels with some 33" Nitto terra grapplers. Hoodscoop, nfab nerfbars, Bushwacker flares. No-name aftermarket grille, led fender extensions. Black Horse bambi-basher. Various offroad lights.
    I'm still trying to learn what's good and what is not. I'd love to play with a Dasaita or Joying, but I'm not spending 500+ on an experiment, I just hope that for the added cost, those makers have streamlined the things I describe as "wonky" a bit more. There definitely seems to be more forum/internet based support for those 2 makers, but you're paying for it. Sounds to me like your interested in a more "friendly" option :D I'll pm you and see if we can't figure something out.
