    I miss living in Buena Vista, but it is absolutely insane to try to live out there right now. All of Colorado is so expensive right now. There are some trails I still want to go on this summer. Such a beautiful area, so many good views!

    I had nothing but trouble with this company. I ordered several Quarts for few Oil changes and had few unopened ones left. I put them on ebay and promptly got email from Amsoil warning me how they don't want to see their product on ebay. Also I got warning for using picture of their product from internet because it is Copywright (I did not use image from any of their websites). Terrible customer service and awful experience. I will never do business with this company!

    Can't blame you on that. So far no issues with them. My buddy gets a discount so it doesnt hurt as much lol.

    Forgot to add:

    Rear Diff and T-case are finished. Running Amsoil in them. Weather hasn't been cooperating so it is hard to get it done.

    We decided to move the horns and install the Winch Control Box in this location and mount the horns on the hood latch bracket.

    Recently got a 2020 red sr5 4runner, first mods were blacked out emblems and Trd matte black wheels. Trd grille is on order, but do you have any recomendations to start out the rig? Not planning on it being a huge off-road type vehicle, but wouldn’t rule it out completely. Thanks!

    If you have an idea of going offroad, tires are the biggest thing. My SR5 has taken me everywhere I have wanted to go with just a set of tires. TRD Grill is a huge upgrade imho

    Where did you put your control box? Be careful with it. You may want to take it back out and seal it up. I had a doozy of a problem with mine and thankfully it was covered under warranty. I had my entire console and radio rebooting on my vehicle. It was totally strange. Took the control box off and it had water in it and I haven’t been through deep River crossings or anything. Just a bit of rain and a few off-road trails. I don’t want you to experience the same situation.

    Issues found:

    I found silicone caulking to work best. I took it apart and caulked everything and put it back together nice and snug and then let it dry before re-installing. Also silicone caulked around the edge a few times to make sure it was solid.
