    Mine broke off when I did the lift. I haven't had the time to fix it (running around with no front bump stops). I need to replace the LCA's so that might be the perfect time to do them.

    Hi guys,

    I did a search but couldn't find what I was looking for about the even more bone-headed move I pulled today. I like this section so will post here first.

    Story goes...I added some new haul ropes to the garage doors of our new place. Silky! However, I routed them so they are a little wider out from where they were to take advantage of a better haul point. Long story short, as I was looking backwards over my right shoulder to back up, I lassoed the driver side door mirror on my wife's 06 Speedway Blue all-options TRD Sport Taco and broke the bracket into a bunch of pieces. The mirror and mirror surround are fine, but the bracket is toast.

    Doesn't look like I can find just the bracket but can you guys recommend a cheap aftermarket mirror that has the same bracket to mount the OEM Speedway Blue mirror surround? I'm worried that if I get a cheapy, the bracket will be different and the correct color OEM surround won't mate up.

    I replaced the clips at the top of the radiator.
    I remove the small panel to run the wiring for an ambient temp sensor (bob's mirrors).
    6 clips broke. I replaced all nine.

    I build mine on my own, and have removed it and installed it on my own multiple times (mine has full hoops as well). What did you have questions on?

    They look fine on my 4K monitor. Maybe the up scaling is filling it in though.

    thanks a lot! Joe actually ended up cutting notches in that metal piece that has the central hole in it for the tire lowering mechanism, “high & tight” was the goal
