    We have a local BS thread, wheeling and buy sell trade,,, but lots of us are down to get out there and meet our fellow enthusiasts.
    This is where online community becomes local community.


    Got mods to do but not sure solo,,, need a little help cause shit's heavy,,, bought a bunch of stuff and need motivation to get that stuff in? Got a heavy ass bumper and want help? Got a lift kit and no shops to install? Need a little help cause you're in over your head? Wrenching with friends is more fun.


    Like hitting local breweries and want to have a beer with folks you've been chatting with online? Wanna go throw some axes? Want to go fishing or hit some bike trails? Just some ideas. Get out there!


    So whatcha got? Where ya from? What do you know or not have a clue about? What are YOU looking to do? Please throw ideas out there! I'm not looking to organize it all. I want to get out there and wrench and wheel too!


    This Is what we do!

    '21 TRD OR AC. CT here. Always up for a day trip to meet similar-minded folks. Wondering how well received a septuagenarian long-term Taco owner would be. I'd expect to find much younger crowd at a meet, but could be proven wrong.

    Nice, what mods you looking to do? For drl I tapped into the running lights at the driver headlight. @CttAznRanger is great with wiring.

    Unfortunately 4/23 is pretty busy for me, so no go on that.
    I'm good with adding new wiring, I personally hate taping into OEM wiring unless there is a plug and play. I know someone makes that, but I forget who. Was it @daveeasa ?

    I do have products for no-cut capture of DRL, Park and the combined output. Feel free to ask questions if anyone is confused, I'm not so awesome with product descriptions :)

    I personally now have LED headlights and have a need to connect the MESO V5 turns. I do need one of your harnesses, no?

    Need? Not sure that's the perfect word. Want? I hope so. I sell an OEM LED headlight conversion harness with grille light output which can feed my v5 T harness to supply DRL and Parking Light to your driver kick panel. You may then marry it up with the MESO pigtails from the mirror turn signals.

    Yes...? I already have your harness but I don't think it has the grille light output I think.

    Also, @AllTacosFloat 4/23 is the same day as the Roko Vehicles Open House.

    Subbed, it's a bit of a ride to Mass, but every one I have meet from the forums has been good people, so once I start getting shit for the runner, I will for sure enjoy help.

    I know, before that we had tentative plans to go wheeling and camping or I was going to get my bumper on with Jared. It's on my way home maybe I'll roll in there with my new bumper

    I may be wrong on this but I believe 2nd gen has a halogen bulb for DRL and turn, like SR 3rd gen? If so, you need a more complicated setup to de-multiplex DRL from turn. Johnny has a pretty solid design for that in his SR V2 thread for 3rd gen OEM LED. Such a concept could be modified for use in a 2nd gen if the connectors are different.

    The stuff I have right now is targeted towards the TRD trim levels which have a clean DRL signal available.
