    Well up here in the North East (Maine) we had excellent weather this weekend! 60 degrees and sun on SAT and SUN!

    What (If anything did you do to your tuck this weekend before the cold weather comes)?

    I have another thread around here about a cheaper dyna mat/raamat subsititute:

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/53496-dynamat-substitute-home-depot.html

    Anyway, I picked up some of this this today and installed it:

    Next weekend:

    Back up and bed lights!

    What did you guys do to your trucks this weekend?











    I went for an 80 mph ride after the install and i can say that it's cut down on cabin noise about 40% (installed on fron doors and rear cabin wall)...still need to do the floor and access cab doors)

    Nice. I drove slower do to a speeding ticket. 6 yr ticket free record gone, because I had to pass a slower driver on the right. Bad timing. Hmm that was 16hrs ago.

    Nothing at the moment
    Washed it, vacuumed the interior, put the all weather mats in, put the snow tires on, swapped the washer fluid with de-icer. Pretty much just got it ready for winter.

    While Offroading This Weekend:

    -I lost the power steering fluid cap which allowed dirt to get into the reservoir and now it whines.
    -Broke the Clips on the Front right fender
    -My wheel compressed into the well, caught the HID fog light wires, and ripped out the harness. So now my fog lights arent working

    Picked up a mattress and new cook top for the kitchen. Then we threw our bicycles in it and headed for the local trail (Illinois Prairie Path.) Ordinarily we ride to the trails, but there is road construction that makes a bad crossing a death defying dash.:eek:

    For the truck, I resolved to get a Scangauge and bicycle fork mounts to make carrying bikes look more civilized. I also looked up the strength of the bed channels and I'm impressed - they'll take 400 lb tension each! I could find no information about the pockets that hold a 1x8 across the bed.

    I was eyeing up that same set of lights you have in the first pic. I'm assuming you'll use those for your bed light mod next week...

    Make sure to do a good install DIY post. I'll wait for you to do yours, so I can see how you do the install.

    Looking good!
