    Congrats on the new rig. Personally Id go after market. You can find some pretty good deals if you dig a little. For example, in my area some one was selling a new trd snorkel with the fender for $600. Normally $1200 from the dealer. Or more relevant. I picked up a tri fold tonneau cover for $250. Dealer wants almost $800 for the same thing.

    Welcome and congrats. There is a forum area where you can get info on the various tonneau options. I went with the Lomax tri-fold and love it, but others have different favorites. Visit @MESO 's website and...:spending:

    It's a sickness. Enjoy it. :thumbsup::rofl:

    Get yourself a bed mat first thing. I like the Toyota one, it was in my 2nd gen and now my 3rd gen.

    All right, a 3 pedal job! :burnrubber:

    Monday -- man, talk about a long agonizing weekend...

    Manual Sport is the best choice -- not that I'm biased... :thumbsup:

    Welcome to the forum, lots of great information here and everyone always jumps right in to help. (spend your money)

    I have a oem rack and i think its kinda junky. It cant hold much maybe two kayaks. It depends of your needs and how often youll use it. How much does the dealer charge for it? probably way overpriced.

    But congrats on your tacoma!! Treat her nice and she will last 500k miles :)

    It’s about $500 installed. Have a Thule box I want to use. Probably won’t use for much else

    Welcome, love MGM, I'd hold off on the rack, dealer is probably gonna push the OEM one which there are better options. Tonneau is hard, there are a gazillion options and prices from $200-1500 depending on what you want. Some popular ones here are Lomax, Bakflip MX4, Diamondback.

    I second the OEM bed mat. Kept my (Canadian) Thanksgiving turkey secure on the ride over to my mom's last weekend.
    I also have the oem hard tonneau cover. Was a bit pricey but is solid AF and if issues I just take it to the dealership.
    Then do the AC drain mod and silicon the 3rd brake light imo.
    Congrats on the new truck!!

    If it doesn’t come with them, door sill protectors are a fairly cheap & easy mod. Functional too.

    Oh, and welcome to the crazy-house. :bananadance::bananadance::bananadance:

    If you’re planning on doing any off roading at all I would see if you could take off the Predator Steps and mud flaps for a discount on the price. They are hazardous off road.

    I don't quite get where you're coming from, seems a little harsh considering the OP was asking for feedback. Have a bad day?
