    I guess I'm old school leaning towards any mod that requires mods to the vehicle, I have learned that sometimes you have to learn to adjust to the circumstances, anyway, I'm happy with the turnout I got what I wanted out of the fiasco. My only goal is to help those who may have issues with the hand they have been dealt. I am happy with how mine turned out. Plug and play most certainly not. However, if I can help, that is all I can offer to them. As KTJO would say, it's for the community. Now don't roast me please.

    I have to say that the shipping box should have been longer to accomodate the A pillar and more padding inside would prevent any damage any product inside. Just my opinion.

    Noted Tony, this is the only enhancement I have added from KTJO, and the only that I have done that required tweaking to add on. All the other mods from TW members have been spot on without install issues. To date the fog light mod, tailgate lock mod and others haven't been an issue. Now if I can afford a OV tune mod that would be awesome.

    Same here. One and done for KTJO 4x4.

    The OV Tune is very nice. Check the list here for folks that might be close to you and can flash you for much less than the full kit:

    Thanks Tony, I'm way across the pond, so I may have to wait for this one. Looking to get a skidplate for my Taco next.

    Ah! I will say that even before the sharing happened, I felt the old school Flash Kit was worth it. With a small MPG bump, it does eventually pay for itself.


    The skid is nice. Getting protection and a smooth surface back to the crossmember is a good thing.

    Wow. Magically Perfect and a bonus handle. You really lucked out. Time for a lottery ticket.

    Someone didn't get a handle, just the trim. I can't remember who though. @tacobelletx , maybe?

    I received two shipping numbers. One for my old address and one for my new but the old address one never got fulfilled. But TWO?!

    Might want to put what color you have incase someone wants it.

    I can’t believe what a mess this has turned out to be. So glad I didn’t make the pre order when I was debating it
