    Shit even when they don't leak, they'll still piss down your leg because the drip rail drains right onto your knee when you open the door.

    Highly recommend Metalcloak if you're lift shopping... They've taken a few thousand from me lately between the belly pan, 3.5" lift, and a few odds and ends but their stuff is top notch. The articulation of their control arm joints is insane and they ride so nice.

    Yeah, I’m Familiar with MC. Was talking about a lift for the taco.

    As for the faucet of a rain gutter. Haha. Thats always fun.

    I'm not the first to make the suggestion, but Headstrong is a great place to buy from. They helped me A LOT when deciding on lift options and their prices tend to be some of the lowest + free shipping. Couldn't be happier with my ADS coilovers.

    Anyone interested in some BFG KO2 in 295/75/16 with ~5/32 tread before I put them up on the forum?

    My gopro got unplugged and wasnt recording for the entire day....

    I had ordered the hilift mount you had but the taco is back at the doctors office gettings its guts replaced since Thursday...

    Would love to go with a roofrack again but am afraid that thing is going to leak like the last one that I had installed when first getting the taco.

    People who have this seem to like it. I'm going to use something like aquarium caulk to reinforce the factory seal.

    And I found out that my Rexing recorded the entire day in one minute segments. All I have is part of the last trail as a result. Thinking about a gopro.

    Nope, just put new rubber on and have these in the garage taking up space.

    Granted I've only had my rack for a few months, but putting a healthy amount of silicone in the bolt holes before installation seems to work out well.

    Parts for the window needed to be ordered and are due tomorrow. Got a brand new highlander with 10 miles on it when I left Wartown.

    I did not extra reinforce the seal that came with the kit and that was prob my mistake. I have the 35$ apeman cameras and they work great for all my vehicles. No need for an expensive gopro. Only advantage is that the gopro will record full segments not like 10 minute snippets like the cheap knockoffs.

    I should have done that and didnt: [​IMG]

    Yeah; loved that as well. Very visible and bright. Like a directional bar on the fire trucks.

    Yeah; loved that as well. Very visible and bright. Like a directional bar on the fire trucks.

    I went with a good product as I didn't want to buy it twice. Reverse light (bright), amber turns, running light, brake and four ways. And it is bright. Worth it for me.
