    @xxfattyhunterxx why do you wish that you would have bought the sport instead of the off road? I will be purchasing soon and am curious?

    Thanks. Hopefully I can get some more of my wish list done. Just got engaged, and trying to save all cash for a wedding.

    Not sure if he'll respond to you or not, but I'm sure you can see my responses as to why I got what I did. Honest advise: if you spend more time on the street, or intend to mod the truck, get the Sport. If you're looking for a truck that's going to be slightly more capable in off camber scenarios out of the box, get the Off Road. You can add an aftermarket locker to the Sport and make it better than the Off Road.

    Very nice truck OP, that color is sweet on a stock truck and even better when coupled with nice wheels and tires. Can't wait to see what's next.

    The 2nd Gen is a 63" Box

    This one is a UWS TBS-63-A-LP-BLK Black Single Lid Low Profile Aluminum Toolbox with Beveled Insulated Lid

    UWS: UWS Brand
    TBS: ????? The TBSD is the deep version that is slightly too deep for our trucks.
    63: means its the 63" box.
    A: Has the angled bottom to accommodate the wheel wells of the Tacoma.
    LP: Low-Profile
    BLK: Black box rather than aluminum finished.

    Here it is on amazon. Actually a pretty good price shipped to your door honestly. I think mine was closer to $450.
    http://www.amazon.com/automotive/dp/B0017HB3SS

    LMK if you have any questions.

    Open the hood and reach behind it. there should be three tabs that you can push out and it comes right out. Takes a total of 30 seconds and no tools required. If you cant figure it out, ill post a video...

    Try to sand it a little first...prevents it from flaking or peeling.

    What number sand paper? If I do sand it, how do I get the gloss back if I don't want the plasti dip on?

    Just something to rough the surface up a bit. Not really looking to remove material. You can buy gloss black rather than semi or matte. Personally, I like the satin black look. Matches the grille plastic pretty well.

    First off nice truck man, your build is going along very nice.

    I want to get some advice, I currently own a 2010 trd sport DC/LB. 2WD
    im looking to trade it in for a 2013 trd sport DC/LB. 4WD.
    Coming from some one that has traded your previous taco to your
    Current upgrade, is there any advise you can give me that you experienced.

    This will be my first attempt at a trade in and want to make sure I dont
    Screw myself. Mainly if you have any advise in things I should look
    Out for, or be aware of?
    Thanks
