    it fits, but it's snug. you'll have to shimmy it in to make it fit.

    I did this mod today and have a question if anyone wouldn’t mind answering: I ran it as shown in the pics and realized afterwards it may have not been a good idea to have it in the wheel well. I think it’s okay, but does anyone think the tire may rub the hose? The first pic is with the wheel turned all the way.

    I have a 5 year old Tacoma. It gets hot here and I use the A/C frequently...always have. Pulled the rubber flap away to take a good look. No rust....zero....zilch. The inside of my frame in that area is already full of Liquid Wrench rust inhibitor from my annual treatments anyway. But I went ahead and coated the entire outside area of the frame with it as well, since I had access to it.

    Just seems like non-issue to me. :notsure:

    How do you remove the 2 clips? Just putting pressure with a flat screwdriver? I do not want to break them, thanks

    I have an actual clip puller. Made it very easy.

    I ended up routing the hose through the external side of the frame, as far away as possible from the exhaust, I think it ended up well.

    Finally got around to doing this... waited seven months. Just in time for the FL summer! Nice, quick... and easy. Should have been my first mod, but procrastination's a muthaf#cker.

    Thanks OP (@Uptown2k) for the write up. And thanks to all for the different suggestions! Y'alls pics are AWESOME!!!

    Anybody know where I can get replacement clips for the little liner? Took them on and off a few times to get it perfect and now the liner flops loose from time to time

    i also needed to replace the clips on mine, so i went with this. the way that i saw it, doesn't hurt to have these lying around in case your truck or other vehicles need some replacements too. plus, there's a removal tool that comes with it! i use one from the bottom row in the first photo.. from L -> R, either the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th. i forget, but it is very secure.

    This is gonna be a dumb question.
    How do I access where the factory AC drain connects to the drip pan for the AC?

    Did the drain mode today and I'm worried I pulled the factory hose out while I was slipping the new 5/8 hose over it.

    I ran the truck for about 10-15 minutes on the coldest setting, recirc and normal mode, didn't see a single drop of water come out. Don't believe there is a blockage because I can feel airflow coming from the new hose.
