    Just spent $344 at Jiffy Lube

    For the people complaining, how much of your own work do you do? I try to do all of mine. I try to use OEM parts except motor oil. I have been using Mobil-1 but I'm going to switch to Kirkland Full Syn. Yes, because it is about 1/2 the price of Mobil-1 at Wal-Mart pricing. It takes me about...

    2nd-3rd Gen Tundras and the front brakes

    Let me reiterate my points in my OP- 1. Buy new anti-rattle clips and use two per caliper 2. Put some copper anti-seize on the pins (and hub where the rotor mates) 3. Please don't push old fluid back in. Use the bleeder screw and bleed new fluid through the system. I did bed-in the new...

    Ring Door Bell Motion Light

    I'll also note that I would NEVER put anyone's camera/recording/listening device in our house. I was shocked at how people went beserk about how the Ring indoor cameras were hacked, but 99% of those people had an Alexa or Google listening device. If our cameras get hacked, they will see/hear...

    Ring Door Bell Motion Light

    I went through the saga of trying to pick what cameras to install outside our home/around our property in January. I almost went with the Arlo cameras, but the reviews were horrible. I bought two Ring Spotlight cameras. One is battery powered, the other is hardwired (plugging into a...

    2nd-3rd Gen Tundras and the front brakes

    I thought I'd start a new thread to go over my experiences and not garble up the other towing brake thread anymore. I have a 2014 Tundra with 121k miles. I just replaced the front pads/rotors for the 2nd time. I bought the truck new. First OEM set of pads/rotors were replaced about 65k...

    Which brake pads for towing?

    Ok, I think I have figured out the problem with the Tundra front brakes. It's the "anti-rattle" springs/clips. I asked for new hardware when I bought all the parts at the Toyota dealer, they only included 1 pack of these anti-rattle clips/springs. It appears that Toyota only put one of these...

    Power washing your home

    I'm about to hire out one of these "soft wash" companies that comes in and sprays some mixture on the roof, soffit/fascia/etc, let it sit and they rinse it off. Some companies say they use bleach and a combo of stuff, some say they use "environmentally safe products". I want my white...

    Which brake pads for towing?

    Let me ask this - Would a brake controller (Teknosha P3) cause a bias when not towing a trailer? I have read a few internet posts about the 2nd/3rd Gen Tundras having front brake problems. I have a Teknosha P3 controller hooked up but do not use it (do not tow a heavy trailer) very often...

    Which brake pads for towing?

    Not a Ford owner. Bought the whole PowerStop Z36 kit for my Tundra. Drilled - slotted rotors, pads, etc. about $475 worth. Did the bed in procedure to the letter. 1. Noted NO better performance than OEM ( bought the truck new ) 2. After 60k miles, truck is almost undriveable. Horrible...

    Do you have your home HVAC system maintained?

    Nope I had it professionally installed. I change the filter. I'm an HVAC engineer. When it stops working, I get it serviced. There's nothing to maintain except the filter.
