    The side windows tilt out at rear, they crank out about 2 inches or so.

    Ill have to play with it. Definitely noticed every bump in the road a bit more than with my C load KO2s, but it wasn't terrible. Hopefully they do OK in the rain as I live in Oregon. The KO2s weren't great but weren't terrible either. Everything has tradeoffs and I have no complaints at this time. Other than I may need a re-gear now haha

    Need an information assist if possible for an ARB Bumper /Smittybilt winch combo

    Putting an ARB Bumper on my Gen 2 Tacoma shortly and have a Smittybilt Gen2 x20 10k synthetic rope winch ready to go.

    Anyone installed one before and could let me know how far to clock the control lever side of the winch? *I believe it is in 90 deg increments for this winch and based on the mounting solution it would have to rotate 90deg. forward. I believe the motor/terminal side is good to go as is from the factory.

    Also what did you do for the control unit as Im sure the ARB / warn mount will not work due to the mounting pattern.

    Thanks in advance!

    I called ARB USA and they were less than helpful. Sorry we dont know anything about that winch and dont fit them... only warn. I called Smittybilt and they werent sure but the conjecture was 90 degrees clocking on the control side. They do have a 75mb pdf of the x20 manual which has really good clocking instructions here https://www.smittybilt.com/docs/installation/97510.pdf

    Did some electrical upgrades today in preparation for a new battery, switch-pro, winch, and compressor install.
    SDHQ aluminum battery terminals and Off-Grid engineering battery tray installed. So shiny! For now...

    Not at this time. We just bought a thick mattress topper to lay on when we are camping. My wife worries about not being able to sit up with having a platform. That might be rethought once we do the first camping trip and sleeping back there. Do you have a platform? Does it make sleeping a lot more comfortable?

    @dborrer where was that defect in the first picture? Trying to localize bc I noticed new mildew like smell in my driver floorboard carpet underneath my husky liner after a heavy rain immediately after getting back from the body shop. It was there for 7 weeks. Took back to them and they said they tested and found no leak or abnormality. I gotta find something bc something is still wet there.

    Test fit my flares. Not even close :mad: The bedsides are bent a little. The instructions aren’t very clear because the number of screws are wrong and the screw for the front is too short. Now to attempt the front.

    Super easy. It took no time at all. I really just wanted better organization and with all the additional accessories coming up I needed something that had multiple mounting options. Also, it was on sale :D

    Water appeared on my floor, near my fingers in that pic, but I couldn't see anything come in from the firewall pass throughs, only seepage in..... Pop off your trims and lift up the carpet and see if its wet!

    2012 Tacoma 4x4 2.7L 5-speed MT SR5 98,382 miles that I purchased new in November 2011. Today replaced original spark plugs and serpentine belt. Used Denso Part No. 3421 (SK20HR11) spark plugs. And a Bando serpentine belt. Total time for both under 2 hrs. New plugs gap at .043 & the original plugs were over .045 and starting to look worn. Coils were clean. My original serpentine belt looked great but just a piece a mind of guess since I travel frequently in the winter hunting in secluded places. Happy owner!

    Applied a bunch of this stick on weather stripping from Amazon, to fill between the door seams to block wind turbulence and such on the highway. Will conduct tests to show the results once i finish the passenger side.

    Flares are on for now. I left off the rubber strip. The small bumper end pieces aren’t on because they didn’t come with holes, I have to drill them.
