Installed a LED dome light thingy from Advance Auto parts. Huge difference in amount/brightness of light. $17.99 well spent.

Did some shopping for Easter dinner after a few other things. Took the throttle body off and cleaned the best I could, same with the IAC. Idles smoother. My sons wanted to go golfing and on the second hole the freakin rains showed up again. Texted the better half of this marriage and got reminded the headstones needed crosses with palm so rainchecks were perfect timing. Next time you see a dog hanging out the window with tongue wagging in the wind; that's me in my Ranger.

Picked up and installed a Pop & Lock tailgate lock. Works and looks fine, but I was expecting the installation to be more straightforward. I had to dremmel some plastic off 2 areas on the back of the handle to get it to sit flush and to allow the lock mechanism to engage. Also had to slightly bend the metal around one of the holes in the tailgate to allow the lock mechanism to rotate enough to allow the key to be removed.

If they're gonna charge over $50 for a cheap lock mounted on a metal bracket, at least it could be plug-and-play. Oh well, at least no one can easily thief my tonneau cover or tailgate anymore.

Looks good. I'm jealous. I want nerf bars, but they're too expensive for right now. Why did you make your own brackets - did they not come with them?

I FINALLY got to replace the front tires, had to warn the guy at PepBoys about all the wire sticking out, and an alignment.
