  1. Wasn't aware you only had certain colors to choose from in a certain age bracket.. and I think after age 40, you don't give a $h!t what others think.. I at least hope not. The Rock! It Doesn't Matter!!
  2. There is a difference... Android as in the OS is open source(in original form, AOSP), the version maintained/released by Google, they own that. Android Auto is an app, which is owned by the creator, also owned by Google, which is not open source. Now, with that said, doesn't mean they can't be hack or made available to the public under certain license agreement(GPL??) Remember, Huawei debacle, restricting it to using the Android Open Source Project(AOSP), cutting it from Google apps and services.. so there's that..
  3. I save cardboard boxes from larger packages and keep that under the truck, can easily slide on that. You can also get a box of those puppy trainer pads from Costco and lay that down to absorb any spills, works great.
  4. I got a notice in the mail awhile back(months) mentioning this issue, but it said to only take it in if I was seeing that issue. Which I haven't experienced... Yet.. Just checked that link and I won as well. Guess I'll be scheduling a visit...
  5. Yeah, I have some of the perma-seal connectors as well. I just switched over to these a lot now, instead . Plus I usually put the wires in a wire loom also.. haha. *Edited to add picture* This is one of the wires I did for this mod. The ends get sealed(those little bumps) and then I put a regular heat sink over it for extra security.
  6. This is what I use, it seals and solders. I use a heat gun to melt the solder and seal it at the same time. And then I usually use a shrink wrap over it to make sure... 150PCS Solder Seal Wire Connectors, Camtek Heat Shrink Butt Connectors Solder Seal Wire Terminals Electrical Insulated Waterproof Marine Automotive Copper Connectors https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07C3L4N2J/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_9JsEDbT58T42R Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  7. This is old topic, but I saw the 5000SLX at Costco, online showing for $999, but in store it's $899... checked HD and they are selling the 7000SLX for $1150.. so, been wanting one and just put in my order at HD.. haha! How's it holding up and how are you liking it?
  8. I use the aluminum foil (see in my post above), but I cover the frames around the filter/drain plug, depending on how close it is. With this plug, hope to avoid doing that. This is the pan I have, big enough to drain and remove oil filter at the same time. https://www.autozone.com/shop-and-garage-tools/oil-drain-pan/flotool-drain-pan-16-quart/700706_0_0 But this one looks like it would work to..

  9. Thanks! I used to use plastic bags(grocery store bags), but sometimes it was a hassle to hold. With this, you have the plastic ring to keep it open and hold with, so much easier. Even if you don't really have that much room, getting this under the filter to catch the oil that starts leaking without taking it off save you a lot of mess..
  10. I put one on to see how clean and long it takes. My 2017, the drain is at an angle, so it's not really messy. I didn't with this last oil change, but if the oil filter is the worse part for you, just use one of these. Break the filter lose and cover with this as you're taking it out. Then just pour whatever's in the bag into your oil drain pan. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075M3RKK6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_OtADDb59P15MC
  11. Changed out the cabin filter and then decided to clean/blow off the Airaid dry filter. Didn't look too bad as it's not my DD... [emoji1690] Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  12. Ok, where were these pictures BEFORE the cluster upgrade/install... Are you sure you trying to show off the skyline, or your cluster... Since it's taking half the picture.. [emoji23][emoji23] Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  13. Here a good starting point: I do something similar, but switched to a one bucket wash. Use about 12-15 micro fiber mitts, one for each panel/section and never dipping into the bucket twice. So water stays clean and no floating grime in water. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  14. I agree about the filter probably catching some washed section(dirty part) and getting sucked into the filter. I also have been using a Dry filter(AEM, in my TB since 2013) and it still looks great and I give it a wash every other or so oil change. I have the AirRaid JR kit with the Dry filter on my 2017 as well.
  15. Put on 2300/miles during a 5/day road trip to see my daughter and attend my niece's wedding.. Peeps from Idaho, don't know how you do it, but I think I killed about every species of insect out there(probably entire species... ) My front grill/bumper/windshield, man, talk about a collage of insects... finally got home and gave her a good bubble bath.. haha!
