intermittent wipers

tried to get this mod on my '10 man reg cab 2.7 4x4- any threads on modifying/replacing the 2-stage wipes with intermittent? I would even be happy with a console mount? Any ideas out there?

You just replace the stalk with the intermittent one - all the "smarts" are in there. See:

A bit over $100...

Off Road Front Bumper,...Help!

Hi Guys,

Not new to the forum, but have not post ever.


Questions: I'm looking to trick-out my 2008 Taco, 4cyl. (mostly stock now) to more off roading, but still pave driving too. Here's the list of Shit/stuff I'd like to do...

#1: Change front (with winch) and back bumper to off-road:

#2: change the stock bench seat out to bucket seats..Ya, I know it's not recommended...

#3: sunroof,...Ya, I know it's not recommended...

#4: good off-road tires (snow), stock rims OK for me...

FYI: I (and wife) like to do back country (mountains SW) camping and hunting, I fabed a rigid metal frame (removable) to the bed and had a local lawning company make a canvas tent shell for the frame, made cots (removable) in the bed, and we love it... Got ride of travel trailer, it's the best of all worlds, we can get in places that few can go camping....I'll post pics at some future point....my point is, on the above list, I do not want to spend a lot on these things, I've been on a few off-road sites, but most are just to out of reach on price. Plus they want to take the order charge my credit card now, and ship in 4-6 weeks....BS!

Thanks, for any help...

needless to say, went in a LOT easier than it came out....wow, I gots intermittent wipes. 30 minutes and a few "huh?"s...best trick was to go over the top of the steering wheel to reach the catch-pushed her in with the long screwdriver and out she came (had to hold the wheel down and turned to right and hold up the upper column cowl). thanks ya'all!!!

Is there a good (and cheap) source for these switches?

Thanks

http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/aud...ket-radio.html

This is a solution to the question i see a lot of people asking. "How to i use my factory aux input with my aftermarket radio"

Required materials:
3/8" drill bit and drill
PAC iSimple IS335 aux plug kit (about 14- on ebay, shipped)

Time required:
About 15 minutes or less. it took me about 5 minutes but i had my truck completely gutted for deadening and my audio install when i did mine. If you need to do step 1b, add 15-20 minutes. It sounds like a lot of work but it really isnt bad and it goes very quickly.

Step one:
Remove the aux plug and unclip it from the harness. This can be done without removing the panel it's in and just reaching down through the HVAC controls and popping it out. HVAC controls will need to be removed and you will need skinny fingers.

Step one (alternate):
If you cannot remove the button by reaching down through the HVAC controls this is how you'll have to get at the panel the 12v plugs and aux button are in:
1.) Remove the console http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/57895-center-console-removal-w-pics.html
2.) Remove the radio trim, HVAC trim and Radio
3.) Remove the drivers side door sill and then kick panel
4.) Remove the panel under the drivers side steering wheel. There are (2) 10mm bolts, 1 on the left side just under the kick panel and the other on the right side under a plastic tab. It just pulls out from the top.
5.) remove the glove box by just pulling it off the tabs and unclipping the plastic damper
6.) Remove the (2) 10mm bolts on both sides of the 12v/aux/a-track panel and pull it out. You'll need to pop out and raise up the center ac vent section of plastic to get it out. Unclip everything and it's out

Step two:
Take out the white plug from the aux plug/button and remove the circuit board. Just pull from the rear and this will slide right out

Step three:
Drill a 3/8" hole where the current green aux plug is (your factory aux button/plug should be gutted and empty at this stage)

Step four:
Insert the PAC iSimple IS335, through the 3/8" hole you just drilled. I got mine on ebay for 14- bucks shipped.

Step five:
Wire it up to either a 3.5mm pigtail connection in your aftermarket unit or rca connections with the supplied rca adapter in the IS335 kit, and snap the aux plug back in place. I wired mine up to aux input 1 on my Alpine iva-w505 using the rca connections.
Note:If you needed to do step 1b, put it all back together now.

Step six:
Enjoy the ability to hook up a aux device for listening.

Pics:


The 3.5mm jack on the left is for ipod video, NOT AUX input.
AUX input is in the stock location. You'll also notice i have replaced the 12v cigarette plug on the left with a USB plug, wired up to my iva-w505. I got this usb plug adapter from mp3car.com. here's a link:
http://store.mp3car.com/Automotive_Marine_USB_Cigarette_Port_Replacement_p/com-040.htm




AUX input plug in factory location shown


This is what is shown on my iva-w505 when i'm uning the aux input wired in


Hope this helps some of you guys and girls out!

K, I've searched and searched on here...and I can't find it. Where do I get those headlights that glow like a ring at some point? I doubt I'm making sense...I saw them on a guys' yoda that has 't-rex eyes' or something to that nature for his headlamps. I loved the look of those.

thanks for any help

5100's

I know this seems like a rookie question. But are the 5100's the Bilstein stock shocks on the TRD Sports?
