On toyotas the electric motor is in the transmission on the front of the vehicle. Knowing automotive enginners some sensor is in there that would prevent it from bypassing it because why have 2. Could it operate just the rear drive train with the battery? My guess is not from the factory.
I got close to 15 on a cross Canada trip where i was doing 65 for hours on end. One thing i did notice is that below 65 the truck will down shift empty on uphills when using CC.
I usually get 13 ish at ~75 it drops fast from there, but the truck doesn't down shift on hills when empty
Just watch the video when you can the Audew is impressive. I like shopping local but we just don't make the right batteries here in the US for the price so you have to go where the they make them to get the good stuff.
NOCO are over priced jsut get an Audew, tested on project farm
For off road metal is good and bad depending on what your doing. Sharp objects can puncture metal where plastic will deflect. rough objects and slides will abrade through plastic faster. most people don't rock crawl a super duty so i can see metal being better.
along the same lines use these
hook them on the seat pocket and attach to the last 3 inches of the cord. When not in use it will pull them tight.
I can take a picture later today on my truck to show you where i cut mine off. That cab corner that it covers is also plastic, i didn't realize it till i put these guards on. It doesn't make much sense to cover plastic with plastic.
if i remote start in cold weather both the seat and the wheel will auto turn on when i get in the truck. The wheel gets too hot for my hands so i turn that off on the screen button after about 3 minutes.
yea this has puzzled me a couple of times. it seems they don't respond to on-off toggles when the doors are opening and closing. You can use the kill all button until you have time to deal with it later.
cut the end cap off it fucks up the rear door gap.
