Seeing that the "owner" of D4S lies on a steady basis, and BigD wiz is now basically an employed shill for D4S, I SERIOUSLY question the validity.  I could message Dirk, if he is still online.

Who the hell is BigD Wiz?

Mid day beers are needed.

Hope you found some.  Sounds like something I need to do.

A guy on YouTube with an amp dyno.

Been working from home a little recently, I admit my drinking has started earlier.

I don't pay attention to the dyno stuff; I watch them, to find out about different products, but I understand the "validity" of the dyno.  Love the old school videos though.  There's a couple guys on there with some good old school stuff.

It's entertaining, but also not usually to reflective of accurate results.

At least my opportunity to relocate there and work....for now. We'll see that the future holds.

At least new headlights are finally on the way. Been needing to replace the damn things for at least a year. Deet and everything else is useless on these hazy bastards.

Ironically, I spent today tearing apart an old headlight I had downstairs.  My DS low beam went out and it's $30 for a replacement lamp.  WTF?   It's just a standard halogen lamp.  I remembered I had a headlight downstairs from a car I parted several years ago.

Not on this.  I have to pull the entire assembly out, then the wiring harness, then remove a sealed panel, then work the lamp out, and reverse all that.  IT's pretty stupid, but it's probably the most involved part of the car to work on.  The rear airbags literally take 5 minutes to change.  A major part of the suspension is a 5 minute job while a lamp takes a couple hours.

That's rough. Not a fun day at the office there.

Got em out and went to put em in.....apparently the non automatic leveling editions have no spot for the leveling motors.

Toyota had three editions of light leveling; manually leveling, in cab leveling (spin a little wheel to adjust), and automatic leveling (ones with sensors that detect a leaned down back end and adjust for the angle). Well they have non-automatic and automatic. I was wrong. Dumb move.

I really like the 2019 Toyota LED units I put into my stock headlights:
