I have a tower of Toyo M655's sitting in the garage waiting to be mounted. We are spending some time on the Oregon Coastal Dunes and will try to get this done between trips. 7 by 82 lbs is much easier to move around on a furniture dolly than rolling one at a time.

Continued my search for a junkyard for a new driver's door, dim-bulb moment and forgot I was parked next to a column in parking garage and ran the driver's door into it (The door was already slated to be replaced, since it has a crack through part of the window frame, this just stepped up my timeline since the door sticks a little now when opening it).

Currently, I have the 225's with 4.44 gearing. My Toyo's are 245's which will make cruising RPM a little less. 65 mph is 2000 rpm in stock trim.

I have 4.89s and didn't care for the 225s with them. With the 245s, you'll effectively be around 4.28, which should be really nice.

I replaced two roof plumbing roof vents, and found my running light gremlin. It turned out to be the plug, again. For some reason, the one in the bed doesn’t like to stay in place sometimes. I think it’s the camper moving in the bed.

I have another potential issue to checkout tomorrow. It looks like some of the weather protection near the generator on the bottom has come loose or is damaged from weather. I guess I’ll take a better look in the AM and maybe seal with bedliner etc.

Truck bed liner...
I just used it on the wing area of ours. It'll be impervious to road spray now. Was Luan covered with contact paper stapled around the edges. Yea that'll hold back water. Used Herculiner, it's awesome!

Washed the truck and camper inside and out.

Resealed every compartment door and the three interior doors that access the wheel wells.

Pulled off the outer dually wheels. Taking them to the shop for new rubber before we take off on a 5000 mile trip in two weeks (already put new tires on the inners)
