    Rocklight Mod! Best mod for the $$ I ever did! But if you are not using LED's (like me) make sure you get your alternator upgraded! (Mine now puts out 60 AMPS at idle)

    Why do people do DTRL Mod? The lights on 2nd gens go off when you shut off the truck and open the door, why do you need a mod to make them run all the time? I never turn mine off! :confused:

    Other: Seat belt chime disable

    And no, do not take out your buzzer. You'll probably regret this when the engine oil pressure drops one day and your buzzer doesn't make that annoying sound to let you know..



    Anyone who drives off road for long periods of time and does not like to wear their seatbelt in these conditions knows exactly how wonderful this simple procedure can be.

    Tru dat. I am lucky I have not had to deal with it and my 93 4Runner, but I cannot tell you how many Taco's etc (after 2K) deals with this. Even having some gear on your passneger seats sounds the alarm.

    So this mod IF I had a Taco with the alarm, would be 1st on my list!
