    Nice paint job on the custom grill! I was considering the same grill and painting the surround silver also. I have the TRD Off Road so my grill is chrome around

    Well the ones I had were not greaseable which was the main concern because they would have eventually broken at the ball joint. Well technically they are greaseable but you have to take the boot off to grease them rather than a zerk fitting which the new ones have. They also have new bushings that are 1000x better than the old ones. But my main concern was to not have this happen to me. You have to email them and ask about the trade in.

    :ohsnap: You had me worried there for a second I just installed some a few months ago but they have the zerk fitting on them so I take it they are the "new" ones

    I just ordered 6 of these:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004T1PLDW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Granted that's right at $36 for all of them, but Amazon is easier for me than Ebay, so I go there when possible.

    Also, do yourself a favor and get one of these....

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01BVSA3S8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Best $15 to spend for a plug job.

    You guys should be careful buying plugs off Amazon, very well documented that there are a TON of fake plugs being sold on there. Do a search on it here or YouTube.

    Best to order directly from a dealer online or just pay the stealership price.

    Couldn't you have done it all with Dynamat? Or is the NVX heavier material? This is on my list for the future.

    Hit some trails over at Wildomar OHV last weekend and my front driver side started clunking a lot when flexing and going over speedbumps. Everything seems to be fine and the only thing I can really point at are the old style SPC uca's I have on the truck so I decided to upgrade to camburg uniball uca's. Don't think I can trade them in through SPC since I purchased them used off of here. Excited for the new ones to come in.

    Not super exciting, but changed my oil. Castrol Edge 5w-30 and a Toyota filter. Always used Castrol since I bought it at 36k, made the switch from conventional to synthetic around 80-85k and still going strong at 119k

    My 2011 Regular Cab base model showed up yesterday!

    Bringing this mod back up, has anyone done this swap on the earlier gen 2s like mine? Especially the base model. Out of all of the wheel swaps I’ve seen here, I like this one best, especially since I want to add cruise control...

    Perfectly stock?
    Redid the layout of the roof rack. I still need to mount the Pelican Vault case and slide the ARB awning bracket up one slot.

    I didn't think I'd like the recovery boards mounted horizontally but it makes a lot of sense.
    The last pic was how I thought I'd want it.
