New maxxis tires is about all I can think of right now. Which is by far the most important. O and I wouldn't mind getting a maxxair 2 vent cover.

I would like to fab up some under body- storage boxes. I think some of the larger flat ammo boxes would be a nice size to start from, and have them slide forward.

What are you going to store in them? The square pvc fence post covers with a pc of pvc guttering in them work great for small items, slinkys, etc.

Yep first is four new LT275/65R18 for the Tundra. #2 Some 30amp fuse relays for sliders/Levelers. #3 Self storing telescoping poles to facilitate tying down my power awning that "dunnnc (old coot)" did on his RV. #4 A licence plate bracket with camera backup. Of course this is not looking at the wifes list for interior work too.

Water hoses, filters, y's - not in the same container- grey elbow, spare shut off adapter, slinky adapters, gloves, slinky extra ends, chemicals. I also would really like to have room to store the side kick grill, but that may just have to stay under the neck or in the truck toolbox.

I would like to put the pvc square with gutter in too, I have a rear door so my bumper is split and doesn't have much room.

#3 is easy, just get your Pay Pal ready and I'll take care of that chore.

1) Got a storage cabinet to design some organization in.
2) Side-splash on sink to keep water from splashing/dripping onto adjacent couch.
3) Found another dead-space that I can put a cabinet door on and have another inside storage cubby.
4) Replace frame and glass in door. Frame has yellowed badly, and wife wants to switch to a "smoked" or mirrored glass that we can see out, but someone can't see in.
5) Maybe install the second pair of 6v GC batteries.

I'm thinking about adding 3 LEDs SPECIAL PRICE WHILE THEY LAST - Warm White 5050 LED Light Bulb with Wedge Base - M4 Products for the 3 lights in our TT that we use the most. There are 3 additional overhead lights that we never use, although they are handy if you drop something small. They are just too glaring for our use. The plan is to replace the 2 reading lights behind the sofa (in the slide) & the light in the hood over the stove.

Would be interested in that door option too. Do you have some place that you can purchase it?

Franks Auto transformer and new tires as our Duro's have passed the 12,000 mile line and will be 4 years old next summer. Already have my black Honeywell digital thermostat to install. I want to get a pure sine wave inverter as well to power the TV while Wally world camping. I am going to attempt the shock modification that Neil did as well. The only thing with us is I can buy all the stuff in the world but when the temps hit -30 or so, well I just can't seem to find the desire to go outside.
