Today is cosmetic. I'm replacing the factory radio antenna with a short plastic fixed stubby. Using Plasti Dip on the troublesome rear rubber window trim, painting the faded rear corner posts, and restoring the oxidized rear bumper and side steps to be black again. Got new tires yesterday.

Upgraded. After 8 years it's time to say goodbye to my beloved 03. It's been the best truck I've ever owned and will serve the next owner for many more good years to come.

Last Friday a buddy who works at the local Toyota dealer texted me pics of an 06 DC he just took in on trade, 121k miles, never seen snow was stored every winter while the owners spent winter in Florida, timing belt done, body is perfect and frame too. Super score got it for $10k. So far lifted the front 2.5", new 285 Kumho AT51's, Kenwood deck, Magnaflow muffler and 2.5" tail pipe(cause I had it), transferred my Hellwig sway bars, and some other stuff.

Installed Rancho Quick lift struts today, took about 4 hrs for both sides. That being said it was more than half of that time was fighting to get the bottom shock bolts in. The washer head bolt had to be put in at a odd angle because of the 4wd CV shaft. I considered grinding a flat spot on the washer head to clear the shaft but I opted against it and fought the fight. Anyway, I definitely like the more aggressive stance,(and my old shock bushings were wore out and every where i drove sounded like a squeaky bed) and the ride is greatly improved. I also set the ranchos on 6.

New Gas Cap. The old one knew I was thinking about getting one and fell off the day after I put a new one in my basket.
More sensitive than I ever imagined a gas cap to be.

Lets see, looked into my front drivers side wheel well, admired the rusted out frame then drove to the dealer and pick up a new to me 2016 Tundra DC Inferno.
The time had come

I was thinking you had a plumbing job awaiting ! I'm repairing a rotted fence post myself.
Tomorrow I'll be visiting the Big Box Store for some pressure treated 4x4 lumber to finish the repair.

Over the past two days:
  • Replaced both knock sensors, which required removing the manifold
  • Cleaned the injectors and replaced all of the seals
  • Fixed a coolant leak
