thanks Blind C! The wheels were actually the first thing I swapped out. I sold them for cheap on CL. I think I let them go for $150 with good 30" tires.
Regarding your question, I probably have a slight decrease in mileage but nothing overly noticeable. Also now that I have swapped the hardtop back on I probably would not run both the hardtop and roof rack together. Although the roof rack is slighlty lighter than the hardtop, combining both would be super heavy and I would definately notice some MPG decrease and probably some sagging in the rear.Two questions. Has your gas mileage drastically decreased with all the armor on there now? and would you have considered that exo cage roof rack with the hard top? trying to decide my options for a RTT.
Welcome to the joys of the Toyota roll-down rear window!!!!!Ok so I picked up an extra factory rear window switch (3 terminal) from the junkyard. I tapped blue/white wire from relay to the "down" terminal on the switch, blue/black wire to the "up" terminal on the switch and the white/black wire to ground on the switch. Bingo! The extra switch works ....but now the factory switch in the cab and the key in the tailgate no longer works. I disconnected the extra switch and all the factory settings are back.
What do I need to do to have the "in cab" switch work as normal with ignition on and have the extra switch mounted in the back setup as always on?
I am going to try connecting the extra switch directly to the tailgate switch to see if that works.
Happy New Year!
