Outside of Sea World, Zoo, and museums......there's not much else to do, other than go hiking out in Alpine and beyond. The south end of Pacific Crest Trail (3000+ miles border to border) is at the border in San Diego. I live a few miles away from the Antelope Valley section of PCT.

I’m on a streak, did something else to my truck, today. TAILGATE LIGHT BAR A few weeks ago, I connected a 5-Pin Flat Trailer Connector to my Lightbar. Last weekend, my son and I put all of the wires in a tube, just like the rest of the harnesses under the bed. Today, before installing it, my son and I tested it, it all worked. Tailgate Light Bar - Tried catching the unlock flash. Unlite Lightbar Connector above hitch There’s a “box in front of the bumper, where I stuffed the rest of the harness.
Now, the bow tie on my steering wheel matches the ones on the grill and the tailgate. Tried using some touch up paint that I had, didn’t like it, so I reworked it with some Plasti-Dip I had laying around. Prepped for my initial attempt to paint it black. You can see how “ugly” it turned out, initially. First of three layers of Plasti-Dip. Used my recently purchased heat gun to force cure each layer/application. “Finished product.” Edited just now by Ravenkeeper

I was about to say, that she was in need of a serious wash. For me to wash my baby during the winter months, it has to be at least 45º for wash-o-matic, and at least 65º for handwashing. Looks good.
NO, daytime in AUTO, the headlights are OFF, even with the turn signal stock in HIGH BEAMS. When you turn the wipers on, after a few seconds, your headlights will turn ON and be able to notice it, because the HIGHs are ON, because the HIGH BEAM indicator will come on.
Try it with the HIGHs on.
Did a quick search, hoonigan.com, ebay, summit racing, and a few others have them. https://www.google.com/search?q=hoonigan+plate&source=lmns&tbm=shop&bih=1125&biw=1920&client=firefox-b-1-e&hl=en-US&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjEl-6-0cH0AhXPr3IEHTsWD-4Q_AUoAXoECAEQAQ
Daughter went to her boyfriend's family's house on Thanksgiving Day, and then they were over here on yesterday. On Thanksgiving Day, son, wife, and I had homemade Chicken Enchilada Soup. YUM!!! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!!
Yeah, I don't understand that one either. Stumbled across some different ones that I had purchased for my other two vehicles' reverse lights. Putting them in between the time I wake up tomorrow and before I go back to work on Monday. They appear to have been shipped the same way as the last ones. Check the "CAUTION LABEL." (Sarcasm) I don't know if I should use them in my cargo lights.
I agree, I'm sure that I'll find other mods/projects for mine that I have forgotten, while I'm cleaning out the garage this weekend. I have a "living document" that I have all of my completed and planned mods listed on. Mod titles get BOLD/ITALICS when they're done/complete, ITALICS when I have the parts to complete on hand, and regular font for what I would like to possibly do to it. Needless to say, the italics portion is LONG and growing. I usually put up our Christmas lights and our tree on the day after Thanksgiving, but with family coming in on Thursday afternoon/evening, we're doing Thanksgiving on Friday and decorating on Thanksgiving day and on Saturday.
Did the same thing with my '15, they told me that it was "on par." It only seemed to idle roughly in gear, while in N or P it would purr nicely/perfectly. When I bought my '18, never noticed the rough idle, like my '15 had. What I have noticed is that I can feel the cruise control playing with the throttle more.
