    You would love my town, we literally breathe Tacoma. You cant drive down the street without seeing one.

    I think they come here to die...

    I didnt take them off. I used Plasti-dip spray. After it is done drying, it peels around the embelm.

    Search Plasti-dip and you'll find plenty of tutorials.

    You can take it off and paint it. You would need to buy some sort of adhesive to put it back on.

    When I took the little green sleeves off mine (gives it an orange tint) I thought I was never going to get the speedometer cable back on!

    Haha I got lucky and jammed the gauges back in and I went to pull it back out and the cable somehow slid back in by itself, that'll never happen again!

    Ordered All Pro standard 3" leaf springs, hangers and bilstien 5125.

    Worst part about owning a 96 Tacoma is having to relocate the spring hangers. Should be interesting...
