    I'm waiting for better weather to change the oil. I checked fluid levels and inspected the air filter. I also wiped down the exposed surfaces in the engine compartment and played with the Badlands jack. It works well, but it weighs a ton. It's also twice as big as my old floor lift, which I still need to get rid of.

    Cali really hugs the bumper line well. Better than my C4 for sure! Nicely done!

    Today was a day.

    Did my first self oil change today since buying it used (dealer did one before we went on a trip), and man what a nightmare this was.
    • My torque wrench decided to quit working while I was installing a stahlbus valve, which only requires 18 fr-lb but got a solid pull in before realizing that the wrench wasn’t going to click. Looks fine, no leaks. Annoying.
    • The oil filter housing drain cap was out on so tight that I can’t get it off, it moves the housing. Getting more annoyed because I bought the motiv-x drain tool and was curious to see how well it worked.
    • I use a tarp-material bag we got when we got some beef from a cow we went in on, thinking I’d just loosen the housing and drop it and the remaining oil in and then dispose of it. There was a hole in the seam, and the remaining oil went all over the place without me noticing.

    The rest went fine. I need a new torque wrench, and apparently a new oil filter housing.

    Cleanup pic for laughs:

    I had a Tacoma before and never had these issues haha. One thing I miss, though, is the scceee panel the IFS skid I purchased had.

    Can't tell you how amazing 4.88 feels. I'm out of the break-in. Now I'm pushing it. I'm pretty heavy, I have tons of skid plates and big tires and steel bumpers, but this thing just takes off.

    In case you haven't decided on one yet, I recently purchased this one:

    https://etork.com/product/3-8-drive-torque-wrench-c2100/

    I got the Clear View version since I have a bit of trouble reading the micrometer style (harbor freight) that I currently have. I'm happy with it except for the upper sheet that's printed with torque numbers. As you turn the dial, the paper (?) shifts a bit. In videos I've watched, I haven't seen it happen so perhaps I got a dud. Doesn't move enough to be a big deal, but seems like it should be glued down better.

    I’ll check it out. I’m kind of disappointed if this one is indeed bad (feels like it, I checked it against a bolt on my home gym and no click with it set to 18#) because it’s a CDI, which is Snap-On.

    Added a switch to my raptor lights. I used a relay even though it may have been a little over kill. Took a bit of time but worth it.
