    Few questions for anyone who have installed the ArmorLid themselves. I installed one on a 2011 DC but have a few spare pieces. 2 thin rubber strips and 2 extra thicker rubber gaskets that fit over the front bracket tabs. Anyone know what they are actually for? Thanks

    I did the Armor lid.

    Don't recall the "2 thin rubber strips" = can you post a pic, might help loosen a few cobwebs.

    The "2 extra thicker rubber gaskets" sounds like parts that go over the ends of the pieces that will take the "O" ring - just behind the cab. I believe they are there to help with rubbing/marring the top when it pivots up/down in normal use. Again, pics could allow a confirmation.

    I believe the pieces that fit over the front bracket are just extras since you could easily loose them if you forget to remove them with the cover off. I saw no difference in the ones installed on the brackets vs the ones on the bag.

    I didn't see any place to stick the foam rubber pieces to when I did mine. My guess is they are a protector for another make that is generically thrown in every hardware bag.

    Ill post pics tonight. The extra rubber pieces that fit over the front brackets are much thicker than the ones that were already placed on the brackets. Don't think I would ever get the rings on if I put them on.

    OK, heres the pic...i know what they are but my question is are they needed in a tacoma installation? I guess they just come standard regardless of what vehicle it's for.

    How long are these pieces? Maybe they are meant to be tailgate side seals?
