going on a short road trip outside Oregon, which means I’ll have to pump my own gas (😳), which means I would like somewhere to hang the gas cap

picked up from liftd customs, on the other site

I was thinking about 3d printing this one but the dangling thing has worked well for me so far: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4719055

that print would probably work well, looks just like the meso one. i don't have a printer yet =(

i wonder if there's a print designed to fit in the little square space in front of the cupholder, that could hold a handheld radio. like a midland or baofeng style.

It would be pretty easy to design.

I’m at Costco right now, getting the tank filled for the first time. The guy put the cap on the hanger thing. It works!

i found a good deal on a used one in decent shape. has a couple small tears in the cover so i might replace that with a new one, but it'll still be a good deal.

this is a high country 63. on a short bed it hangs over a few inches but it's not bad.

something cheap, tents are so gd expensive. i'm looking for something more like 60" wide, queen sized, because there will be two adults and a kid in there and that kid is a kicker when she sleeps.

smittybilt is one option but their xl is huge and the standard is kinda small for us i think. still i've been watching them for months (was going to put one on my element before this) and haven't seen any sales, or maybe missed them, so the promise of a cheapo tent hasn't come through yet.

also considering the ovs nomadic 3, it's just the right size but obv more expensive.

while looking around at all the tents, i've been surprised how many of them seem to obviously be the exact same tent, from the same manufacturer, with wildly different prices and marketing. tepui and smittybilt sell the same tent. the ovs nomadic is the same tent. cvt has the same tent.
Go see Bobby at CVT in Bend. He'll hook you up.

Never mind. Should have gone through your entire post before commenting.

we took a road trip from portland to montana, down through yosemite, the tetons, and back. on that trip we ended up down few gravel roads here and there to waterfalls or campgrounds. these stock tires seem purpose-built to pick up rocks and fling them up at the truck. time for mud flaps i guess.

i didn't want to go all in on rokblokz or rekgen, but the real cheap amazon ones also didn't seem great. so i kinda went middle of the pack with tufskinz. they have a couple different sizes, a bunch of different design options, and even custom logos, so that's dope. they do use spacers similar to cheap flaps, but they seem pretty durable and flexible more like the nicer ones. on the other hand, i've never installed, touched, or really paid any attention to mud flaps before now, so wtf do i know.

Looks good. I like the color accents.

i've started blacking out the cabin. so far the chrome cap on the shift boot, the chrome trim around the start button and 4x4 knob, and the grey trim around climate control knobs. i picked up the whole ajt chrome delete kit, which also includes raised lettering for the glove box and so i did that even though "why" is the first word that comes to mind. in the end i skipped the vent rings, they're just a little too domestic truck looking imo. eventually i'll pick up the meso rings, which are bit more understated.

oh i also changed the start button out for taco garage aluminum one.

there's really no reason for any of this. i think lurking on forums is really getting into my wallet space. it's too late though and i can't stop won't stop.

well this summer was mostly a bust for getting outside but since i do have a camping trip coming up in a couple weeks, i used it as an excuse to splurge on a few more bits.

first, static climbing chalk bags as bigger cup holders. i've always carried a nalgene everywhere and i won't let some truck stop me, thankfully folks at the other forum figured this one out (any similarly sized chalk bag/other bag would work here, but my real chalk bag is old and beat up, and i didn't want to sacrifice it for this so i picked up new ones).

IMG_2685.jpegIMG_2687.jpeg

the big splurge and actual can't-easily-go-back mod was the taco garage dmm. it's flexibility and stealth is what sold me. very clever design imo, and an easy install.
