    Nice, should be a great setup. I found out about extended after. Although I did ask a thousands times about that but it never seemed to happen. I may change it up down the line to the 12" smoothies with BAMF shock relocate. No need now but probably the end goal. Did not quite read up on it until after I had everything setup.

    I thought about that route also. My problem is not knowing anyone to do the work that's not a 4+ hour drive. It might be something for later.

    With the acquisition of Prinsu by CBI I got lucky and my Prinsu rack came in less than 2 weeks! Couldn't wait to get it on, but had to wait a week. Still way better than before. Big thank you to @Toynado for helping me out. Always good to have. Second set of eyes. I am sure this went way faster than it would have if I tackled this blindly.

    Also thanks to @alvinfromhawaii for helping with some tips and posts from his build and a quick phone call during install for a lifeline. Rack looks killer, Completely changes the look and usability. Much more storage spots.

    Also with some tips from @Toynado I mounted up my Tred 1100's. Trucks coming together!

    Debating now if I want to mount my Rotopax's up top.

    The Rack looks good on there. How did you go about mounting the Treds?

    I purchased the Tred 1100 mounts and drilled a couple new holes in but for reach mount. I used 1/4 carriage bolts and they would not fit im available spots. Also they do not line up so it's a must to drill new holes. A tip I got was to use a piece of cardboard to find where to make a hole, then drill new holes worb the cardboard over the mount.

    If you have the mounts for the treds all you need is $15 run to Home Depot, Osh, lows etc.

    Thanks! I keep going back and forth on the tred type mounts. I bought some aluminum angle iron like other people have done but then I saw the starboard mount that @alvinfromhawaii did for his. I guess it's good to learn new options but that also means I have to pick one. Lol

    Only draw back to the mount I created is that it can only hold 1 set of TREDs. I am currently looking into making a spacer to make the locking mechanism taller.

    That's nifty looking. I would suggest a small round take out container to add to that mod as the just in case I need to catch something mod.

    Some small updates

    Completed mod for camera to show up in both rear view mirror and HU.

    IMG_9607.jpg

    I will link to the how to for credit but some quick notes:

    T tapped the Camera wired
    IMG_9593.jpg
    For the 2013 I had to buy the 24 pin connector as I did not have one. Inneed a new picture as the wires needed y be moved to the other side. But the camera wires were ran to the 24 pin connector.

    IMG_9579.jpg

    Tapped into my anytime mod to run the reverse wire to the HU. I expected this to work anytime but is only working when in reverse. I must have tapped into the reverse and not the wire off the switch. Looking at it this is correct. Maybe the HU has an override from a different wire. Not sure yet.
    IMG_9592.jpg
    Ran the reverse wire to the 28 pin connector. Here I had to switch. The purple wire was moved to the brown wire on the left. ( this wire I left in for a setup) I'll update with correct photos later.

    Also got around to installing the FJ cruiser side visors in the rear. Fits okay. You need to cut off a few spots for it to fit and I needed to buy a new bolts 6mmx30mm. OEM are around 6mmx20mm @1.00 pitch. They could sit more flush but not bad. I also installed them in reverse (left on the right and right on the left) based on a note from the how to. (Will post later)

    Will come in handy for the newborn.

    Picked myself up a co-pilot last week. Now I can only afford to do the simple stuff. :anonymous:

    IMG_9717.jpg

    Had my set of TACOMA letters from BAMF sitting around forever and finally got around to putting three on.


    Laid them out inside for a template so they would not be off center. Had some fun with it and ditched the MA. I love Tacos even before getting my Tacoma. You'll see the common tend with me.

    IMG_9957.jpg IMG_9958.jpg

    Originally I was going to take the template and redo it but figured why not use the one I already did. Used some RED tape to put hem on after a quick clean up of the grill.
    IMG_9964.jpg

    Worked out well. Subtle, fun and clean. Now I just need a new front end. Diapers or a bumper?
    IMG_9967.jpg IMG_9973.jpg

    Also ordered the trim for the front fairing on my Prinsu. Completely forgot to order it the first time. If you pick a rack up do it. Ended up costing $12 to ship it. Seems way too much for what it is and how light it is.

    IMG_0001.jpg

    They give you more than enough so install and trim. Been coupled up at home but I hope it helps work the wind noise. It's pretty loud on the Tacoma. Had Yakima fairings on ovoid cars and were loud but no where near this.
    IMG_0002.jpg

    Also got around to rinsing off the engine bay after some desert trips.

    It was about time. Some simple green and a quick rinse.

    IMG_9965.jpg

    Hasn't been this clean in a long time.

    Looking good man. That's a nice addition to the Tacoma.
