    OK

    soo...my truck smells like ass...so here's my method for fixing this somewhat common (i hope) problem

    1. Gather tools - I have:
    a Microfiber towel
    Oakley ANSI safe sunglasses (safety first!)
    gloves (again...safety!)
    Kershaw Leek knife
    various pliers
    rubber mallet
    vitamin water XXX (the ONLY good flavor)
    spit bottle
    can of dip (required when working on a truck)
    I also have a mosquito candle thing to prevent me from being carried off by the aircraft sized skeeters here
    [​IMG]


    2. Pack heat...dont wanna get robbed while i work
    [​IMG]

    3. Decide on a scent - I went with Tropical Shower
    [​IMG]

    4. Unlock Truck
    [​IMG]

    5. Open Door - WHEW! stinks in here!
    [​IMG]

    6. Crank Truck - necessary for safety...notice the gloves so i dont burn myself
    [​IMG]

    7. Choose good rock station on XM - 48 Octane
    [​IMG]

    8. Remove gloves - throw in a dip
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    9. VERY CAREFULLY! use knife to open package
    [​IMG]

    10. Expose product
    [​IMG]

    11. Using pliers - remove product
    [​IMG]

    12. Place product in gloved hand - wrapped in microfiber towel will also work
    **This is very important because you dont want the scent to transfer to your hands - unless of course you performed a dirty sanchez with your boyfriend last night...then you may want the scent on your fingers**
    [​IMG]

    13. Locate vents for placement - there are 4 in the 01-04 Tacoma
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    14. Using pliers and gloves...clip product onto vents
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    15. You may have trouble getting them all the way into the vents...using a rubber mallet CAREFULLY pop them in
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    16. INSTALLED!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    17.Go to large trashcan
    [​IMG]

    18. Dispose of packaging
    [​IMG]

    19. Enjoy fresh scent in truck
    [​IMG]


    Now then...questions
    1. Will i need to have my vents aligned now?

    2. Will this size rub when i turn on my a/c?

    3. How much will this improve my MPG?

    4. Will this add any HP?

    5. Will it affect my warranty?

    6. Will i need to regear my a/c?

    Do you need an alignment after this install?

    I have done a similar mod, but it involved, a vacuum, surface/glass cleaner and febreeze.
    Nice work!

    Good write up... but I think there's a little more involved than just using air freshner...

    I have read that you need a slide hammer to remove these if you used the rubber mallet install method, is this true? Will the rubber mallet install also work on the 09 or do I have to use the 20 pound drilling hammer Toyota recommends?

    I am gathering the supplies to complete this mod tonight.

    I have never chewed tobacco before, should I practice before I start this mod?

    That's where those things go! I've had the same ones clipped to my underwear for a month now. I always thought it was weird seeing those underwear clips in the automotive section of Wal-Mart; but I just kept it my little secret. Ladies love a taint that smells like a tropical rainstorm.

    yeah maybe a few good practice runs, before the real deal. DO NOT swallow the juice and if you do video tape what happens later!
