    Hey Mike, I assume they are Huskies or Alaskan Malamutes? My wife and I are Akita family.

    He's lying, he's not a dog owner. "Husky Mike" is his pimp name. He roams the mean streets of San Diego putting the smack down on his ho'z.

    Huskies. Some people think Max is part Malamute because he's extra fluffy, but he is a "Wooly" Husky. Mika has some of the wooly fur but not as much as Max.

    Husky Ho'z. Wonder if it's too late to trademark that.

    My daughter and I (mostly me) worked on her '23 TRD ORP yesterday. Upgraded the halogen DRLs to LEDs, with the wire harness mod. Also installed a set of Raptor lights, with a fuse tap to the low beams in the fuse box in the engine compartment. Put some yellow Lamin-X film over her driving lights to make them yellow fogs. And installed a set of raised storage pieces in the doors (advertised as being able to hold cell phones without falling out). Overall a productive day, she's very happy with the results, and hopefully learned a thing or two in the process...

    Just did the Meso Hatch lights and wow what a difference, also that's the easiest install on anything I've done yet to the 4Runner.

    Put a tray in the center console. Velcro plastic mats on the back of the back seats. Replaced plastic tire valve covers with metal ones. Which I quite like a lot. Makes them much easier to grip.

    I like the looks and options that metal valve stem caps offer but you may want to be careful about galvanic corrosion issues that may pop up if using 2 dissimilar metals. Ask an experienced tire shop and they’ll probably have stories of seized caps.

    Excellent point and I’d like to add that galvanic corrosion of dissimilar metal alloys generally requires a catalyst in the form of an electrolyte (hint: think road salt or marine environment). A good way to mitigate this (reaction) is to have at least one of the metal alloys in contact to be zinc plated. A simpler means is to use Corrosion-X as a surface treatment/sealer on the valve stem/valve cap threads.

    Not my first choice for design options, but there are a couple metal caps with a plastic liner. That's what I'm running now. They have an American Flag on them.

    A dab of anti-seize on the valve stem threads (or inside your metal caps) and you'll be fine...

    Installed the 4TPAM today. It was the largest mod today. Also installed a bunch of MESO/LED lights on the rig. Ordered a Prinsu Pro Rack and Truck Vault, as well as RCI sliders. Also picked up a bunch of products from Blaze Offroad as he did all my wiring and lights on my Taco. Garmin Powerswitch for my Baja ditch lights, ARB twin, Baja 40" light bar. Coming alone nice.

    Well, technically I didn't "do" anything to my 4Runner, but I did have a near-miss while driving home tonight. Thank God I have a dashcam. No contact was made (laying on the horn helped freak the guy out enough to swerve back into his fucking lane), but if it would have happened, the 4k video helps prove who is at fault.

    Fast Forward the video to 1:40 to see the action.

    Thanks. It's a FitCamX. I have it set to record in 4k, which eats up more space, but you can see EVERYTHING.
