    I replaced the front rotors and pads yesterday, with Advics parts. The factory pads had Advics stamped right on them, and I was happy to find replacements out in the wild that didn't carry the "Toyota" parts price.
    Other than cracking a Craftsman 19mm socket which will be replaced under warranty at Ace, it went swimmingly. I would strongly suggest that if you can, re-use the old hardware (retainer springs and pad pins), or get genuine Toyota parts. The AC Delco hardware I got wasn't quite the same and didn't go on properly, so I used the old stuff. No issues there.

    Installed the ICS dash mount. I was unsuccessful in being able to pull the wire harness from the 12v so I could hook the USB ports up. I need someone with tiny tiny hands. Lol

    Not gonna lie... popping the dash and head unit out and drilling holes was a little stressful but it working out really well.

    Had to repaint my "grill guard" mod. Noticed the paint coming off while power washing bugs the other day. With all the abuse the nose takes, I'm only using 2X (with the separate catalyst" from here on out.

Couldn’t be more impressed with the install work and special thanks to @Bhouck2309 for reaching out to me and taking on this project. What an absolutely unexpected awesome way to end the weekend!

    Did you have to install new suspension on the front to carry the new bumper?

    I re-aimed my headlights today…after the lift and slight leveling, I’ve been getting flashed lots more often.

    Also started to de-chrome a bit. I plasti-dipped the horizontal bars on the top grill, and the yota emblems on the centercaps. Also took the centercap garnish rings off.

    Didn’t have to, but already had. Wheels, tires, and suspension lift were done months ago.

    Got the rack light wiring done on the ground and installed the ladder. Still need to wrap the roof and get the rack bolted on.

    Checked the spare tire and rest assured it was at 45PSI. The door sticker says 32PSI. Max pressure on the tire says 44PSI. Good luck driving with that spare on a summer day.
    So much for the PDI at the dealer, that I paid for.

    Prepping her for a 2500 mile trip up north.

    Probably seen this 100 times from others but here it is again, didn't need a oil change but did it anyway. Installed Fumoto drain plug and full RCI aluminum skid plates installed. Couple of things I noticed, RCI put a hole on the cross bar to drain the transfer case but not on the skid plate. Good thing it doesn't need replacing every 7000 miles. Minus a point, would have been nice to have the second plate with higher wings to keep the catalytic converter safe from a sawzall. Minus another point. Overall 8 out of 10 for RCI full skid plates.

    Continued with my cargo deck drawers system project, phase two. Built and installed the drawer for the right side cabinet, now just need to fab and build a pull out tableC4B04510-24EF-439A-AFB9-01B8D466362C.jpg 76CD8276-475F-4B45-87CD-C1C96BAE517F.jpg for that cabinet, have a cool idea for that & hope it works. Once that is all done then on to phase 3 of the project.

    Installed my spacer kit today on the wife's runner. She said and I quote... "i thought it was going to look dumb. But I looks neat! I kinda like it." Then she precedes to ask "Can it go higher?" My evil plan is starting to take shape!:bananadance:

    Next up is a Pro style front end/grill and emblems painted to match the wheels.

    Just a guess but I’d say everything there easily less than 100lbs. The diamond plate is pretty thin. The extrusion is 1x1”. I went this way just to be different, besides I know how to build with extrusion anyway. And I knew it would look good.

    Nice tire. In my opinion other side of sidewall is better looking.

    Threw some TRD Pro wheels on my wifes SR5. She even had the wherewithal to choose the matte black, since she has the black overlay option. I will throw up some pics though it's hardly anything unique; just a silver runner with black wheels. She loves it though, and I gotta say the slight change in offset (or was it backspacing?) made a surprisingly nice change. We are putting snow tires on the stock wheels so this allows me to just do all the swapping at home. TPMS were moved over from the stock wheels with zero issue. I couldn't believe how cheap these were for a factory item.
