Bed extenders come in handy, especially if you're a moto guy like me and use your Tacoma as a race hauler.

I personally think the tail light guards are just useless junk you can put on your truck, but that's just my opinion.

i have a bed extender in my truck....love it

i use it for everything i put in the bed from groceries, to mountain biking gear, to whatever.

they are not hard to install but do take a little time to get right

i dont really like those fire decals. nothing wrong with being proud of what you do but getting decals of a maltese cross with trd emblem is a little over the top. to each their own though.

I listened to my better half & drove 3 mile with my tailgate down once.
I now have a nasty dent/scratch in my tailgate as a reminder to listen to my inner voice the next time instead of the boss lady. A sales Rep was trying to talk me into a short bed double cab. When I pointed out the fact that the bed can't hold two bicycles he suggested the bed extender

Seen, done, did the rolling with the tailgate down.... once was enough....

I think it comes in handy...

I have an access cab and only ended up needing it extended once. But, when in normal position the bed ext helps create a nice little boxed off area for whatever needs to stay put, ie... cooler, groceries, 5 gal water bottles, Help's by not letting everything bounce all over the bed.
