    So. My son ordered the neoprene rough country seat covers for his 2020. $110 seems good for custom fit deals. This is the last thing I need for my truck. Wondering if anyone has had experience with these.

    9x11 plasticolor. 3 different sets. The fronts had to be hacked and modified pretty heavily to eliminate rubbing from the -25mm offset. I mounted them high and a bit wide in an effort to save my paint from crap getting flung up from my tires. The back are mounted high and wide as well those are unmodified. I also made some small splitters for the front of the rear wheel well for some added protection. I despise the look of mud flaps, but given that my 02 tacoma had mud flaps with -19mm offset for like 17 years and no rust, then I took the rears off and within 2 years the bed had rust every where -- it's a good indicator that those flaps were actually providing good protection.

    Rear: un modified mounted higher and wider than you would normally mount em.

    Splitters: small edge of a complete mud flap cut off and mounted at the front of the rear wheel wells. Not sure if these are providing any added benefit, but I figured it couldn't hurt

    FRONT: these were severely modified to eliminate the scrub radius rubbing that came with negative offset. Also mounted much higher and wider than you would normally mount.

    I had my truck in the mountains off road for about 40 or so slow and easy miles and had some chips on the rockers, so I decided to make something that was cheap, provided some protection, and didnt look terrible. This is what I came up with. Around $65 for 6 flaps (9x11), a few different templates to get the look I wanted and an hours worth of work.

    Yeah, I like the low profile look of them on your truck, way better than the OEM ones. Plus concerned about protection/rubbing when I size up in tires.

    You were asking about seat covers, I got some Amazon specials that I like. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B072TCS38X/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    They fit well imo, though the price has bumped up a bit. I managed to pick them up for $85.

    Don't mind the dirty truck, spent the weekend camping in Maine.

    Those look nice. I've waited this long, so I'm going to see what my sons covers look like when he gets em. I'm sure I'll be helping him so I'll report back. Right now my truck is being used as a restaurant 2x a week after ice hockey, so it's only a matter of time before someone spills something all over these seats. Not sure why Toyota decided to put light grey seats in a utility type vehicle.

    Haven't started to calc yet. It didn't change on my last Taco when I upgraded tires, not sure I'll bother checking on this one for some time. For me, I just put gas in it when it needs it. Like my motorcycle when people ask what kind of mileage I get, I say who cares? I get the motorcycle to ride, just like the truck, I got it for what it can do, not for the mileage figures. My '06 PreRunner got pretty much as advertised mileage, if I'm close with this one, I'm fine with that.
    I put these on at 3,500 miles because the stock tires were so crappy. Even if I knew going in that it would cost me in mileage, I'd still do it, just to make it driveable.

    The seat covers were ordered the day before I picked up the truck. Couldn't stand the grey seats either.

    By the way, ordered a set of AT3W's today. Getting them installed Monday night. Will post pictures once they are on the truck. Also ordered some of the Plasticolor mud flaps. Pretty stoked.

    Supposedly, the Wildpeaks have a new rubber compound and are not performing as well as Wildpeaks from even a year ago. Take everything with a grain of salt.

    Yes they have the plug in spot attached to the bottom of the grille below the emblem. You will need the wiring harness though which is about 60 bucks from Toyota

    LED fogs installed over the weekend with the help of @2k2. They look great and work really well so far. All parts used were Toyota. Buyer beware if you have a 2020, I did not need to use a relay. I recommend switching out your turn signal stalk instead of using a button as well.

    Also, I have a couple questions if anyone is able to shed some light
    1. Has anyone opted to use headlights from the TRD Sport or TRD OR on their SR? I want to move to LED headlights but have had poor experience with aftermarket headlights and have decided to just stay with factory electronics. If anybody has, was there any wiring upgrades required?
    2. Has anyone just swapped their factory bulbs for LEDs on their projector headlights? If so did you have to upgrade your wiring harness?

    nice

    there's a whole thread on this (stickied, 3rd gen forum) with tests and charts and data, but it's like very long. tl;dr version is that LED bulbs are bad and for a decent increase in light output you can swap the H11s for H9s in the stock projector. i even did it myself.

    Good luck with the ATW3s. Hopefully you get them balanced out first go.
    For the plasticolor -- I used all factory hardware and nothing that came with the flaps. I also took one of the flaps and made a cardboard template to test fit and get the holes pre drilled. I'd recommend getting the ATW3 mounted prior to any mud flap install

    Figures..... in my experience any descent AT tire that performs well all around gets harsh and loud at 35-40k. I was hopeful to get a bit more life from these, but I wasn't expecting much more than 40k before the cabin noise was annoying and I start to slip in the rain

    Ended up getting them installed, surprised how quiet they are on the highway (for now). Didn't have any issues with balance... got lucky I guess. Got the Plasticolor mud flaps as well, will install those one of these coming weekends. We'll see how they do in the snow this winter. I'm really digging the look of them on the truck now.
