    Not sure if this is the right thread, but anyone ever install a Dash Cam in their truck?

    Had a woman try and merge into my truck last week on my way to work and it’s getting more and more often that I have to dodge other drivers.

    Ordered the Viofo A129 Pro Duo that has the front and rear camera. Going to try and install it sometime today.

    We have them in our work vehicles and it sends the video to management anytime it’s activated. So sometimes when I’m bored at say…1 or 3 am I’ll slap the shit out of the camera and start rambling some nonsense then end it with a “hope your upcoming day is as great as my evening has been! K love you bye!”

    Lol
    I know a guy that owns a plumbing service company and when he first put GPS on the trucks they set it up so he would get a text notification every time a truck hit 80mph.

    Well a bunch of the guys found out about it and it basically became a contest to see who could hit 80 the earliest every morning

    Funny enough we had a guy we were selling a house to back in the day. I was working for a construction company. The guy had borderline credit and was barely approved.

    Week before closing, he went and bought a new truck where the dealership pulled his credit 13 tines for financing and his credit score took a decent dip.

    Next day they couldn’t get him qualified. He had to pay to lease it for like a month while they worked to get his score back up and couldn’t live there.

    Buying a house and a truck at the peak of the respective markets seems fiscally intelligent.

    Any GMC Canyon owners? Going to take a look at one today.

    Anyone with a mid-size pickup that truly regret not going full size? I don’t have any specific needs that would require towing more than the 7,000 the canyon provides.

    went over 57K miles on my Tacoma today and can't imagine needing a Tundra. Trucks are getting wayyyyy too big

    the Canyon and Colorado both look really sharp IMO

    I dropped from an f150 to a Ranger lariat and no complaints. Only have one kid so road trips are fine throwing stuff in the back, and I get over 26 mpg on the regular.

    My Tacoma is a pretty cramped in the back seat when I have both car seats in. My youngest sits behind me and she has to cross her legs cause there isn’t enough room. My oldest is fine behind the passenger cause my wife is short. I will probably move up to a full size truck or back to a 4Runner once the current craziness dies down.

    What's the pricing situation on Chevy/GMC compared to Ford for full sized nice trucks. What I'm really trying to figure out is whether a new full sized Chevy/GMC is outrageously expensive similar to Ford and same with used full sized being outrageous. I.e. am I looking at paying like $50-55k for a 2019 Chevy/GMC with 40-50k miles on it.

    Is it unavoidable that more aggressive tires will make your truck drive shittier? Whenever I got the Nitto Ridge Grapplers on the Tacoma it started driving way worse on the interstate and at any speed above like 30mph. Feels like your getting blown around by the wind. I.e. the truck will just pull in a random direction. However compared to stock tires they are way better in wet conditions and obviously offroad and dealing with boat trailoring on wet surfaces and muddy areas. I'm afraid to put tires like this on my brand new Tundra and fuck up the way it drives. I guess I could do something less aggressive but still more tread than your typical stock tire?

    Typically won't be as bad on the Tundra. Weight has a lot to do with it. Wider tires on lighter trucks , especially with stiff suspensions are gonna behave poorly and pull/float. My old Tacoma wasn't too bad, but it was noticeable. Are the Ridge Grapplers that aggressive? I haven't kept up with Nitto stuff very well. I'm several thousand miles into a set of Falkens on my F150 and I've been happy with them as an all terrain. I got 10 plys (E range) as I do a decent bit of towing, and the ride is pretty rough even at 50psi. Probably won't do that again.

    The big thing about going to an aggressive tread pattern is staying on top of the maintenance. Keep them balanced and rotated, aired properly, and keep your alignment in check.

    if they start wearing under evenly or chopping they will really ride like shit. And wear out quickly.

    I need to take some better pics of it. Been busy as shit ever since I got it Friday afternoon. Selling my boat and upgrading to a better bigger boat as well which has required a lot of work getting the boat cleaned and waxed and ready for sale.

    It drives so much smoother than my 2016 Tacoma and it has way more acceleration. Feels like Christmas morning every time I get in it.

    I towed my boat from where I store it to my house which isn't very far. It started to smell like something was burning inside the truck. When I got to my house I could smell it from outside of the truck too. Google'ed it and apparently that isn't uncommon in new Tundras it's just burning off something. Freaked me out.
