Just bought a '14 Crew Cab

I drove to Idaho when it was snowing last weekend and bought myself this '14.
It was delivered on Friday.

Needs to be raised in the front or lowered in the back.

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.

Well it rarely snows here in the valley. Still not sure which way I'll go on the height. I have spent the last 2 weeks chasing problems instead of doing any upgrades.

So far I have replaced the tires ( found large gouges in side wall of one rear tire) and battery (wouldn't start the second day I had it). Had an annoying rattle under the dash and found four bolts that were almost falling out.

Now I'm trying to figure out the fueling issue. I have to put gas in really slowly or it kicks the pump off. I took the vapor canister off and blew it out but nothing came out so I'm not sure what to try next. This is a real pain and the gas attendants really hate it. I really hope I can figure it out.

I did order all the stuff to upgrade the mirrors. It will add folding mirrors, turn signals, puddle lamps and auto dimming. Hopefully I will get that installed this weekend.

I actually installed a Motofab 2" kit in the front yesterday. Now the rear is only 1" higher. So it's not perfectly level, but it should be good since I plan to do a lot of towing.

Now I need a wheel/tire upgrade.
