    Just be careful popping the plastic dome covers off. They break easily, especially when putting them back on. Make sure the pegs and grooves line back up on the front ones by the windshield.

    Youtubed, How do you change the spark plugs on a Toyota tacoma? There is a video with what looks like a Toyota tech showing you how to do it. The is about 15 minutes long. The first time I did it it took me about an hour to get the tools out and clean up after. It's pretty easy to do.

    Not heavy duty, but very useful. I found these keychains at Home Depot for about a buck fifty. I simply backed out one of the window screws and ran it through the webbing giving me a ring and a carabiner on each side. I hang a rod between the two for hanging clothes, too which has been nice for the occasional dry cleaning run. Cheap and functional.

    Anyone know how to remove the two silver panels on the side of my radio? I scratched on and want to paint it but all the videos I see only show up to the removal of the radio and touch screen. Figured if someone knows it would belong in the mods / tutorial section thanks!

    Wanted a secure way to mount my shovel in the bed of the truck so that it didn't walk off. Bought some #2 conduit hangers, some t slot nuts, and a couple of 3/8" bolts to make two clamps for the shovel. I then hooked the shovel into the hangers and user a linchpin and a MasterLock to secure it.

    Ome, Sqeak free dakars, arms, skids, sliders.
    Remove radio, remove ac and hazard clock etc. Then you pull out surround it's held with clips.
    Doesn't hurt to remove the gauge surround also.

    The 2012s show the relay in a different position/location..

    Is this JUST for 2012, or for 2012+?

    Well can give pics as my truck is being repaired but I made a cheap bed or backup light out of led spike light. Here is a link for them http://www.homedepot.com/p/Commercial-Electric-Plastic-LED-Spike-Light-K40037/205432310. It works for the Sport or Offroad like mine spike fits into the rail tie downs and just wrap the cord on the same and plug into your 120 volt outlet. Easy to remove or swivel as a spotlight and turns on by your outlet switch inside.
