    grille painted to match body color (black sand pearl), bed mat, intermittent wipers installed, 14" shorty antenna.
    Have a 2009 Tacoma regular bed with 2-speed wipers. Was thinking of installing intermittent wipers but came across a recent thread that indicated most, if not all recent Tacomas have them installed backwards (delay setting is opposite of what it should be--wide mark = short interval and narrow mark = long interval). Found this information by doing a Search on this forum for "Intermittent wiper backwards". Have any of you who replaced your 2-speed wipers with the intermittent type also found them to be backwards or is this just a factory install issue?

    I also have an '09 Taco with the "Fast and Faster" wipers and would like to install int wipers. I guess backwards would still be an improvement.

    Does anyone know of a site that lists '09 parts?
