    I jack up the rear of the truck getting them to droop all the way out and use this in between the leafs as best as I can get it. I even put it all around the bushings and mainly focus on the pads in between the leafs. It stops the squeak and usually needs reapply every 6 months which isn’t too bad in my opinion.

    My exciting mod for the day. Ordered the double cab version of this piece which is blank. In my access cab it has a hole to turn off the passenger airbag, which I’ve literally never done. Moved my mic holder to this because it looks a bit cleaner without the writing poking out from behind it.

    This is the before. You can see it not centered and the wording beneath it if you zoom in. I broke the piece recently removing it and figured that's as good a reason as any to make it look nicer.

    I like mods like this that are big on return, and little on thought or effort. :thumbsup:

    I agree. I have a couple more interior pieces on the way and I'll finally stop messing around with it because I've got it where I want it. Uncluttered, clean and simple. Eventually I want new seats but that will be a little while.

    Yea, my next major move is to get all my lighting installed and running. I have that digital switch I want to mount like Jerry did, and I have to fix my 32" lightbar frame with some JB Weld before I can mount it behind the lower grill. I have the brackets. Then I want to run all the rooftop wiring including the HAM antenna between the cab and the cap and under then up through the floor board.

    Package deal on the seats? I'd love to do what Brian did, but the red is no bueno.

    I'm most likely going to get corbeau seats. They make brackets so it will bolt right up into the tacoma and I don't have to deal with any airbag nonsense because my truck is old. I can get both seats and brackets for about a grand, if not a little less.

    If you do the seats you have to do the steering wheel too otherwise you're only partially in the gang. :cool:

    My 63s squeak too but I just have to make sure the grit and grime gets cleaned out from between the leafs my deavers were the same way. But my front end sounds like the red light district in Vegas on a busy night.

    I've been looking at the Corbeaus as well. Maybe PRP. Airbags are the devil.

    No steering wheel! Too many monies!

    I like PRP but they don't offer a bracket to bolt right into a tacoma. I could fab something, but the brackets corbeau offers aren't much money so I'd rather go with simplicity.

    Can't you get like a universal bottom that slides and stuff and then bolt it down to the Planted brackets? You've done a good job confusing me, sir!

    There's a lot of options of what I (or anyone) could do, but the bracket and slides are $124 each from corbeau, so I'd rather just buy that than monkey around with building my own brackets. Especially because time will be limited for a bit because baby.
