    Well the rebuild of my suspension seems to be holding up, with a 2200 mile drive to Phoenix, and now a couple days on the trails. She is noticeably smoother and quieter. New uniball and bushings for the UCA and bushings for the rear links help with that for sure. The OEM LCA bushings are holding up pretty well. Offroad the Kings do ok on slow speed, but when I start getting more confidence and really shake em up with a few more mphs? They respond nicely. They do really well on the hwy too. This 4Runner is 5900 lbs and this suspension soaks it all up pretty well. Here is a link to a few minutes of trails at slow to moderate speed.

    Solar for help with house battery depletion from the fridge. Cheap HF 25W (only put out 16W max in testing) will be getting replaced one day. I have a Renogy 100W suitcase to add to it when set up in camp. One of the Anderson connections will be a plug and play option to add the Renogy into the mix. Love the Victron and BT app.

    Forgot to post this video. This is the Dirty Parts Alternator Voltage Booster I installed on my 4th gen. Did the same on my 5th gen, it's the same install except the fuse box is layed out a little different. So the booster needs to be oriented opposite of the 4th gen, but they're both the same process.

    Thank You Sir!! Love it up there!! Never been to Montreal, but I work for the Golf Channel tech crew and we used to do a tournament in Quebec City. What a beautiful place!! So historic and pristine!! Everything I have heard about the folks up there was Fake, Phony, and False. Everyone I approached after acknowledging my inabilities with the French language were extremely gracious and helpful.

    If you loved Quebec City, you'll love Montreal as well, especially Old Montreal. Quebec City is a mini-me of Montreal, but they both have character. And the "If you don't speak french, fluck off" attitude is pretty well gone now. Was more prevalent in the 70's & 80's, but not anymore.
