Brian's Mag. Off-Road Double

My Truck: 2010 Tacoma Double Cab 4x4

Completed Mods. & Parts:

WeatherTech Floor Liners
- front and back
- gray to match interior
- trimmed rear to allow seat rails to slide backward
- verdict: great!

On-Board Air: Viair
- mounted to driver's side fender well wall (engine bay)
- intake routed closer to front of engine bay
- close to battery
- driver's side convenience
- this model has a built-in switch
- verdict: okay - might need to upgrade eventually to tank-based system

Ride Harshness TSB
- performed by Toyota of Temecula
- had to keep a close eye on the service manager, the "in stock" part was the same spring on the truck already... hmm, not the point of this TSB. Had to order the right parts, but got a loaner. The 2010 4Runner (4 cyl) made me really appreciate my Tacoma.
- rear was visually higher
- springs are stamped with part # ending in "J" (for those tracking this info.)
- this is a 4x4 OR so only the springs were replaced
- verdict: just right - back to how a truck should be (except for the extra rake part)

Debadged Tailgate & Doors
- verdict: great!

Removed Deactivated KARR Security Harness
- "t" splices we're all over the place
- starter wire was severed and routed into KARR module
- dealer drills two holes to mount the capped module next to the hood release
- verdict: spring (fall) cleaning

Bilstein 5100s
- front and back
- front set to 1.75, seems to be a bit nose high
- great feel
- verdict: totally worth it, buy from Down South Motorsports!

Rock Sliders by The Truck Shop
- first off, James does great work
- verdict: untested but confident

Relocated Rear Diff. Breather
- pretty easy, and cheap
- still want a better breather (polyethylene, two-way)
- verdict: better safe than sorry

Future Mods. & Parts:

- Expeditionware Recovery Strap (EW3)
- Redline EZ Down tailgate struts
- Redline QuickLIFT hood struts
- Wet Okole Seat Covers
- Toyota Bed Mat
- Backup Camera Mod.
- Avid Light Bar
