    Just washed mine. Smoking a cigar while I wait for everything to finish drying so I can throw some Griots Vinyl and Rubber dressing on the tires and plastics. Looking like I may be polishing headlights in the near future, and I need to order new step pads for the tube steps cause these are falling apart after five years.

    I got the 3 ton too. I'd of been fine with the 2 ton though. I figure I'm all set if I ever get a 3/4 or 1 ton truck.

    Link to these steps? I have a formatted USB drive so I think I can do this. Where do you get the latest Toyota multimedia software?

    This is the link to download and update software. It has all the information you need to do it. Very very simple to follow.
    https://securedp.toyota.com/download-app/getUpdates

    This youtube link shows you how to do the imaging. I would highly recommend reading the top comment by kjekk. His description will make sure you only have to try this once, and not run back and forth between truck and computer trying to get the right image size, USB format, image extension, file naming convention, etc...

    Basically:
    1) Image has to end in (.JPG) case sensitive.
    2) Image works best at size 885x530. (You can customize your image Google search to only show images that fit this size)
    3) My USB is formatted to FAT32 or MS-DOS (FAT) for Macs. This works.
    4) The folder names that hold the image(s) on your USB must be named exactly as follows (case sensitive):

    a) DisplayOffImage
    b) StartupImage

    You won't find the latest update on Toyota's website unfortunately. Check out the video from @boogie3478
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6T0aMeObBnw

    He found the latest file for us.

    Not today but last thing I completed. I stuffed dual 34Pc-1500s into my 2014 Tacoma. Might do a full write up later this weekend.

    Painted and carpet lined my canopy over the last week. I went with the cheap "colour matching", it's not perfect, but better than blue.

    Thanks for the info. Looks like my HU doesn't support this functionality. In my settings menu there are no options for changing displays.

    Also, seems there are no new software updates available for my year as well.
