    Wow, its the little things, right!?

    I took for granted when I pulled my gas door lever my door would dependabily pop open. T he little gas door spring clip went MIA and I had to use a Carmex tube as a wedge to help get it open at gas stations...:hillbilly:

    finally remembered after 3 fill ups to pick up the clip - back to popping! :D

    Can you please provide some details on the tilting slide? Some links to the item would be appreciated. Cheaper is good

    Visited the AZ/UT borderlands, clocking about 110mi of dirt along the way. The Tundra pulled driving duty.

    Lower Antelope Canyon, Alstrom Point, Paria movie set, White Pocket. A hell of a lot for an overnight, still plenty of relaxing, too.

    The drive in to White Pocket was a challenge for the big Tundra, but it made it. Lots of deep sand. Wide tires and airing down are your friend here.

    I took out the single second row seat a while back so I could use that spot for my fridge. Didn't like the fact there was no real good spot to tie down the fridge behind the front seat. I added a couple tie downs to the seat mounts. Used some climbing anchors and replaced with longer 10.9 bolts, washers and spacers.

    Amazing how long those OEM clamps hold up.

    Four years in the making. Four years of b'day presents from the wife let's call it.

    Mike at BIOR was great to work with. Local powder coat did a great job as well.

    I drove in via Lone Tree and Paw Hole. We drove out the easier/more southerly route. I parked in the large lot surrounded by a split rail fence. Not sure if the second lit is beyond that(?). I did see a pair of Toyota 4x4's with freshly deployed Maxx Traxx, but didn't talk to them.

    Battery in the 100 went dead, no dash lights when key at ON position. I started it with GOOLOO Car Jump Starter GPower180. Last time I charged it full was in October, 9 weeks later today it was still at 100% full charge. Car started in first trial. I tested it with 5 starts, and the charge went down to 93%.

    Last minute invite to run Bulldog canyon with a friend with a classic full size Jeep. Helped some elderly horseback riders on the way out who were lost. Gave directions, water and a map
