    I have a couple items shipped from Amazon with the same tracking info of “will arrive late”, and its been that way for over 2 weeks. Both shipped right after Christmas, one is stuck in OH and the other in CA somewhere. USPS is still pretty messed up at the moment. Surprisingly though before Christmas, I got almost everything on time. And i was receiving at least a couple boxes daily three weeks prior to Christmas day. My mail carrier really loved me! :annoyed:

    Yep, at this time I suspect it is USPS issue.

    cap.jpg After waiting 7 months, just got mine and had a body shop buddy of mine put it on. Everything fits well except for the caps that cover up the bolts. Shown here in the pic is the upper cap with quite a gap in it.

    Has anyone else experienced this? What did you do, contact the vendor?

    Thanks!

    My best guess here is that the pins / prongs are not in the holes properly. On each cover, there is the attachment leash, a couple guide pins, and a couple snap prongs. The two prongs need to go down the bolt hole, but they bend very easily. Check those.

    He'll be fine. That's the same way I start pretty much any job whether it's on the Taco or the Subaru STi. Proper preparation is key.

    Although the subaru drives me to drink way more than the Tacoma does.

    Death isn't listed in the reasons for a warranty or refund, so no recourse. Sorry, bud.

    That hearse is huge! You'd need a handle to get in. Sadly, it doesn't look like there is one on the drivers side?
