    Awesome! I got mine from a store called West Coast Offroaders in Vancouver BC. I know Headstrong in the states sells them. Build quality on them is nuts, makes my old Icons look like a smitty built product!!

    Only thing I have noticed is that they're quite soft, I have 700lb springs and on front end & I have- Agm battery, Steel bumper, winch w/synthetic, light bar, light pods and a 90lb skidplate.. They've been preset to almost the full 3''.

    I have yet to take them on a bumpy road/washboard, so maybe theyll ramp up in bumpier stuff (hoping for that). But if they dont, i wonder if i should have gotten a heavier spring..

    Stoked to see more people get on these!

    Came with MGM topper. Added FJammer stereo. LED Bed lights on AOB Flux Capacitor Switch. Added AOB Spy Mode switch for TBD lighting, stay tuned.
    Got it a big brother:
    IMG_20200518_220952063.jpg
    2014 Sequoia because it's the only Toyota with 8 "real" seats. None of this jumpseat garbage they have in the Sienna and Highlander.
    But the big brother doesn't like to play nice, because I already found two dents in the Tacoma from the one of the six kids opening the rear doors.
    Stupid small garage.

    Okay Everyone here is my Anytime Fog Light MOD done the easiest way I think possible. Literally 5 min start to finish.

    As you know from reading others on here, there is no simple way without splicing wires or tapping into the wire port until now!

    This will allow you to have the foglight on any time. The only catch is that even when the ignition is off, the foglights will still be able to be turned on unlike the other method which requires the ignition to be on. Do not leave then on and drain your batteries....especially if your not running LED's

    This is 100% reversible and no wires are cut! Only the one tab on the foglight relay is bent!

    You will need to purchase one of these for 10$ on Amazon
    ATM Add-A-Fuse (Same Function as Bussmann BP/HHH) ATM Fuse Tap
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007FFG5YI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1



    Step 1: Remove the Fog like relay and bend back the tab as shown.





    Step 2: Cut off the end of the add a fuse which is meant for a wire crip and instead crip on a general plug that will attach to the fog light relay metal part that we bent over earlier





    Step 3: Pull out the horn fuse, put 2 10 amp fuses in the add a fuse slots and then re-insert this into the horn fuse slot. Then attach the end of the wire to the fog light relay tab that we bent earlier and you will be all done.

    Disclaimer, someone did this by attaching the 10 amp fuse off of the EFI circuit. I tried this and it made the truck run rough, which is why I moved to the horn fuse.

    Any tips on wrapping the scoop? I just removed my plasti-dip from my scoop and I’m thinking about wrapping it.

    Do it in two pieces, do the bottom as an inlay. Invest in 3m knifeless tape (design line). Watch CK Wrap videos, he does an amazing job teaching techniques

    Can anyone do me a real solid and take measurements of their TRD pro grille? What is the distance across the letters, from T to A? Thanks in advance.

    all stiffer springs will do is take out more preload that you have in them, they need to be tuned differently if you want more or less dampening.

    they should be welded out 100% otherwise it could start cracking the verticals if you start really using them since the bottom is probably one of the highest loading parts of the doublers.
