    Impressed with the quality of this product, bike seems to be secured well. Also like that it includes locking cores.

    Thanks! They don't seem as bad as most claim, luckily they came in before 3 days of rain in Alabama and I never had any problems getting in or out with wet shoes/boots.

    So far I prefer them much more than the standard diamond tread husky liners I have had in past trucks and my wife's 4Runner.

    1) Sly Bracket
    Received one of Earnest's Sly Brackets for the front tag this week, what a quality product and clever design! Went on just as easily as advertised.

    2) KB VooDoo Bed Bracket + Yakima spare parts = Rear bike tire support
    My tailgate wouldn't close using my RockyMounts Driveshaft bike front axle mount on the front-most bedrail. This is a problem for carrying bike gear/camping equipment obviously.

    I saw KB VooDoo's custom bed brackets that attach to the OEM cleats. Combined with some spare parts from Yakima:

    Yakima Boa wheel tray

    Yakima Strap
    [​IMG]

    Yakima Hex-nuts
    [​IMG]

    I had to get some additional polypro spacer stock, and cut it to about 3/4", from McMaster to act as a standoff so that the Yakima wing-nuts wouldn't interfere with KB VooDoo's bracket. Also had to cut about 7 pawls off of each side of the Yakima strap for the same reason. Ultimately it came out just the way I wanted and it's solid as a rock!

    Minor update, just installed the AVS Step-Shield doorsill protectors, not a bad little addition to keep my jambs from getting scraped up from getting in/out. I originally ordered the OEM Toyota ones, but like many, I wasn't impressed with the 2mm thick rubber sticker that they were, they didn't even wrap around the sill radius. However the AVS fit really well, installed quickly, and the texture and pattern makes them look factory:
