    Who's lining up to buy a 2023 Sequoia and NOT a 2022 Tundra?

    That third row take up a horrible amount of cargo area, far worse than in my GX460. Which I removed immediately upon purchase, as I have zero need for third row seating. Got rid of nearly 100 pounds in the process.

    Lexus GX 460 & 470 owner's thread

    I picked up this 2018 last week. Going to do a modest build to it and eventually sell the FJ. Many things ordered, my credit card is smoking.

    Tex's 200 Series

    Heh, it sticks up some, but nothing like that. I'm Just glad I have hair...

    Tex's 200 Series

    I was at a Lexus dealership the other day trolling for GXs, and was shocked to find the LX had less headroom than the GX. Even with the seat all the way down my hair was brushing the ceiling. Oh well, not really in that market anyway. Carry on.

    Tex's 200 Series

    That piece must not have been heat-treated properly or something.

    Tex's 200 Series

    Wow...I've never done that to even my cheapest socket or torque wrenches.

    New Bronco

    I get it, and I wasn't criticizing. For a single guy like me to have multiple vehicles isn't a good option, unless I move to the country and have room for all that. As it is I just have a single car garage.

    Does the 2007 V6 4Runner have enough power

    My previous rig (95 Trooper) had 175 hp... and 35s, bumper, winch, sliders, rear bumper with swingout... never felt underpowered mainly because I regeared it to regain a near stock final drive ratio.

    New Bronco

    Well sure, but not all of us have a "fleet". I just need to tow a modest camper or boat occasionally, as well as go off road now and again. The FJ is doing a serviceable job of it for now.

    New Bronco

    I do wish the Bronco had a thousand pounds more tow rating, like my FJ.

    New Bronco

    Ah, okay. Makes sense, sort of. The 35" tires are a lot heavier, not sure about the rest of the package adding much weight. Not a big deal to me really, not sure I would even get a roof rack. I don't have one on my FJC.

    New Bronco

    I was just practice building a Bronco on their website for the hell of it (it will be at least a couple of years before I buy one, if ever)... anyway, can anybody tell me why you can't get the roof rack with the Sasquatch package? I'm sure the aftermarket will remedy that, but I'm just curious...

    Winter Survival....Lost Canadian Teen Doesn’t Panic, Builds and Shelters in Snow Cave

    I slept in a quinzhee once, in the BWCA... 35 or so years ago. I could do it again in a pinch, kudos to him.

    Nokian Rotiva AT

    I had these on my FJ for a while, they did great. They aren't as good as a dedicated snow tire but no AT is (get the Nokian Hakkapeliitta for that). For an AT they were good for me in Minnesota. They have a fair amount of siping compared to some ATs and most MTs which helps in the snow.

    Tex's 200 Series

    They are pretty much the same thing AFAIK, just gussied up a bit more.

    (partially) new Tundra coming?

    I got some more details from him about the 5.0 F150 he just got rid of after only 49k miles: "Think it was a Monday or Friday build. I really liked the truck but it was full of gremlins, weird noises/clunks. The engine/trans computers had to be re-flashed several times. Trans was always...

    (partially) new Tundra coming?

    My friend drives a Camry, it has 230k on it. She wants to get to 300k before she sells it.

    (partially) new Tundra coming?

    Somewhat. The configuration is old tech, the rest, not so much.

    (partially) new Tundra coming?

    My buddy at work had a 3.5 Ecoboost F150 that blew up on him. So he switched to a 5.0L F150. It spent more time in the shop than on the road. Last week he ditched it too and bought a new 4Runner. Old tech rules.

    Lag bolt length for tent stakes

    These big "nail" type tent stakes are my favorite. Never had them pull out. https://www.amazon.com/ABCCANOPY-Galvanized-Non-Rust-Pergolas-Accessories/dp/B01AT2L34A/ref=sr_1_8?_encoding=UTF8&c=ts&dchild=1&keywords=Tent+Stakes&qid=1611681599&s=outdoor-recreation&sr=1-8&ts_id=3402011
