    @caribe makaira sent me the pins for the rear seat window switches. Finding the parking light positive with a meter is pretty easy. PWM ground is maybe a little trickier.

    Yeah this pwm is a bit confusing for me. I guess I will probably have to order from her if I want them.

    It's just the beige wire for the PWM ground. Green for (+). No trick there.

    So bare with me. It has been years since I messed with automotive electrics. All I need to do is connect the led to the green and beige wires?

    Look what we have here
    0EFF3A80-0D78-49B0-A9E3-397D7EFD4880.jpg
    No free pen. All hardware included.

    Install was ~15min. Had to use exacto knife to cut some of the white, inside top portion of the handle bar due to having enough clearance for the washer and bolt to pass while tightening. Otherwise it would knock the grab bar off alignment. Product was brand new wrapped in packaging :anonymous:

    Just out or curiosity for those who have the HUD unit installed AND have done a tweeter upgrade (and the HUD is working properly), is there any interference from the HUD and the tweeters? (Or vice versa.)

    I know the tweeters aren't that much bigger (if at all) from OEM.

    Well my missing t-tap harness was actually shipped out when they said it would. Showed up today marked 2-day priority. Looks like I’ll get to install those and run my v5 drl wires next weekend.

    Ya see?! Gawdammit! That's the song of the Sirens I'm talking about. I want one of those. My wife REALLY would like one of those.

    I've got a 2 level fusion and titanium in my neck as well as a 1 level fusion in my lumbar after yanking out the titanium. Of all the vehicles I have driven, the Taco is the most difficult rig to get in. It's not real bad but every single time, I have to make a conscious plan of how I go about it. The handle would be greatly helpful.

    @tacopeter Were these an "In Stock" item when you ordered your's or was it a wait forever kind of thing?
