either id still call them up, your post was hard to follow the way you posted i got lost in words and no spacing, but my phone sucks for reading longer posts aswell

Well I had them mocked up on the truck by a local off road shop and then had them powder coated. The shop said they were warped but obviously didn't say or realize how bad. I have had them for months because of lack of funds for powder and stuff and just now got it done.

I know they stand behind their stuff but if you are sending something across the country like that I just think the quality control should have been better. They are on now and like I said, if anything, I will have a bead run down on the drivers side front mount and then they will be solid. It sure was frustrating.

Installed a Battery Bug

Installed a Battery Bug, actually a week ago, been watching it to get a better opinion.

http://www.argusanalyzers.com/battery-monitors.html

Seems to operate as advertised and looks encouraging. Only time will tell.
I used the hand-held unit (instead of the long leads version) so I could readily move it from vehicle to vehicle.
The readout alternates between battery condition and voltage. You don't have to keep checking it as it emits beeps when below 10% capacity remaining.

Just screwed the connectors to the battery under an additional nut on the clamps. Used a heavy rubber band to secure it to the cross member on the battery holder. Made the band out of an annular slice off a motorcycle inner tube. EZ

Nothing you can't rebuild.

Installed stepbars. Bonehead mistake ordering. Purchased 2011 tacoma double cab steps. Not the same as 2011 tacoma double cab " prerunner " steps. (Brackets are different). Didnt want to screw with the returning so went to Home depot bought 3in. wide plate steal and added on to supplied brackets. Dumb ass.

Fat Kid loves Tacos

Installed my Alpine CDA-105 deck with the Scorche dash kit. Looks fine, color is a little darker, but its all good. Modified a box for a Chevy Silverado to put my 2 10" PhoenixGold subs. Installed two of the RedLine racing hoodlifts, absolutely LOVE them, work and look awesome. Also put in my URD TCAI, eyeballed the cut since I bought it used, but it came out real nice. Slit a red general service hose to line the metal cut, and go along with the red TRD theme. The intake sounds awesome, took a couple for the truck to get used to it (if that makes sense?) Also ordered my Flowmaster American Thunder exhaust which should be here Tuesday! Aw hell yeah!

Splined shaft looks like a liftgate motor. Might take it to a trailer shop and see if they can hook you up. They're only about $100.

opened up my US amp to reglue some knobs (hopefully I got them lined up to the right settings), going to reinstall today/tomorrow. Took out pass seat, did the bar mod thing to it.
