    Oh interesting you got the kit and doesn't fit

    I got the arb manifold and just ran my own air line that i borrowed from work

    I think its recommended to have the manifold or some sort of air tank as a spot for the air to cool before the air chuck because the air compressor gets hot. @tacoma16 melted his airlines filling tires

    I’m wondering if it’s threaded for the locker manifold. It’s some weird British thread.

    I didn’t use a stainless line and went from the compressor to the manifold using plastic line. Well it finally melted after doing the 6th tire (4 35’s and 2 33’s on a Jeep)

    For my air setup I have it from the compressor to a manifold where I have everything branch off (locker solonoids and air tanks).

    It looks like the first thread on the tee is cut wrong, or not deep enough. It’s a manufacturing failure by my eye.

    I had some NPT/BSP issues when putting Toyota gauge senders into chevy block. Made an adapter, re-cut an NPT fitting at another spot. BSP was 28 threads per inch, where NPT was 27 threads per inch.

    I was thinking of getting a 5-gal air pig for a pressure tank for airing up. I figured my little pump wouldn’t be too happy airing up 33s. But I’m currently in no rush.

    And all this time I thought it was a stealth sail that helped the Tacoma achieve its stunning fuel efficiency.

    Alright all you Taco experts, I have a question.
    Before I ask it please remember I am a newb to all things Toyota, other than I have been servicing both the Woodstock and Cambridge Toyota plants for almost 30 years.
    Why in Gods green earth is there gaps at the front of the bed?
    I'm talking the ones between the box sides and the front of the box.
    Better question is, what is the best fix?
    I have a hard factory tonneau and I want to keep things relatively dry, I'm not looking to create a diving bell here. I'm just trying to avoid the shower of water that enters whilst driving in the rain. Or when going thru the car (touchless of course) wash.
    Is this a third gen thing?
    Am I asking too many questions?
    When does the bar open?

    They sure do have white squirrels! I live 30 mins North of Exeter.

    Exeter Toyota has won many awards for customer service over the years including some #1 in all of Canada (I think there is 201 dealerships)

    North London Toyota is a nice new location and getting my daughter into a 2015 Corolla there last year was a good buying exoerience.

    I have not been to Toyotatown for over 20 years!

    I am thinking for drainage of the bed.

    Perhaps you can jam some neoprene or rubber peices in there to plug them?

    Ya T
    Ya Toyotatown really left a bad taste in my mouth. A couple of years ago I fought with the assholes over my Mom's leased Matrix when she suddenly passed. It basically came down to me driving the car there taking the plates off and passing the keys to the manager and saying..."your lease deal was with her and she ain't here no more". They wanted me to pay just over 5k because the lease ended early. I said so did her life...go F%^& yourself.
    Anyways!! Sorry about that......Yes North London is where I bought my Taco!
    Look up Dave in sales...he's the only Dave in sales...tell him Rich sent you!

    My guess is due to a box being composite material, means it flexes, so there are gaps to accommodate those things. For example take a look at your tailgate next time, my paint is completely stripped at the edges where it has contact with the bed :mad:

    Makes sense.
    I will have to remove my tonneau to rectify the situation.
    I'm thinking some well placed beads of silicone will do the trick...or some Hubba Bubba.

    You can cut square foam pieces and insert them in those locations, that's what most bed covers come with anyways.
