Next mod, '06 TRD bucket seats
You'll love the seat covers. They fit great.

mvega1969,

I know earlier you said that these lights came from a trip to the junkyard.

What vehicle did the corded reel light come out of?

That is pretty cool, and I've never seen that before, I might have to go to the boneyard and find one of them.

Maverick, These tilt lights are standard on all GM '00+ trucks & SUV trucks and probably on older luxury models and these ones also has the cord reel on their passenger side. My cousin has a '87 S10 Pick-up (he knows the GM part) and recommend me this mod for the Tacoma.

Last night I went to the Endymion Extravaganza and then today I decided to be hungover all day. I also ate some greasy taco bell.

Here's a shot of the right mount. I used angled aluminum instead of cast bed rails. It's much easier to cut.

For the left mount, I just used a 3/4" aluminum strip.


The strip of aluminum would probably sway but the angled aluminum prevents it from moving.

I think you meant me. The mats are stiff and not flexible like a carpet mat but the fit is good (you can hold them at the bottom and they'll stand up). They're not rubbery. It's like a flexible plastic. It took a little maneuvering to get the clips in the holes. It's been raining so my driver's side mat is dirty. Here is my set:

Passenger side front:

Rear is one long piece:

Toying around with the idea of mounting the roof rack in the bed & made mounts that bolt to the OEM adjustable tie downs. Had room for 2 NATO cans & Co2 tank. Ice chests will slid up under the rack.

Got my security system programming straightened out. Only turn signals flash when armed or un-armed. No horn or headlights.

Here's a pic of the truck I hauled 100 miles. Brought a Blazer with a plow back, but the camera batteries were dead. We didn't get back until 1am, it was dark and cold, so pics were the last thing on my mind. lol



Edit:
More pics thanks to Concrete Jedi!

Arrow What Have You Done To Your Tacoma Today?

I propose we make this a permanent sticky - someplace where everyone can post their new lifts, tires, mudding adventures, mods, etc. A place to show off, a never-ending thread. And of course - claims ain't SH$#T without pics!!!
