    That is a great mod, DID the screen, but the screen is mostly against rodents making a home in your cabin filter. and my Taco lives outside in a forest.
    I also put a piece of sheet metal , rounded between the bottom of the windshield trim and the cowl edge, glued in, for rain water protection ......think I saw a you tube video, it leaves an opening on both sides for air flow from outside for your AC blower......if you cover it with a solid lid, you have no airflow.

    eventually bought a replacement cowl, to get intact tabs, that make a tighter seal with windshield so water doesn’t come from above.

    you will be shocked how much crap is accumulated in those drains.........you have to remove 2 screws in wheel liner.....

    2.5" OME lift, 1.25" wheel spacers, 16" trd anthracite wheels wrapped in 265/75/r16 duratracs, tyger tonneau cover, plus a flew other odds and ends. More to come.
    Haven't done anything to it recently but I did bring it to Joshua Tree and my buddy took some pics with his dslr (forget which lens) Never had any pics taken of my truck with anything other than my phone so I'm really liking these! Still have to throw on sliders and trim fenders but that might not be for a few weeks.

    Is that a dasaita model? Mine looks very similar to yours and I installed a AT front camera that I can recommend.

    Drivers side, bottom left. Passenger side, bottom right. Allows me to just see my back tires and of course the blind spot. Do this on all my vehicles. I just use the non directional dome style mirror. Just make sure you really get the glass clean before you stick on the mirror...will last longer (107k on the Taco, did it to the truck when my dad bought it, and 165k on my old Rabbit...)

    Lower left and rotatable. They really come in handy with dark tinted windows. I always paint the back of the black. No one wants to see the 3M double sided tape. :D

    If you are going with a AGM for the battery, I would invest in the one with the MPPT charger for a little bit more. Same link just one one right next to it for $100 more. MPPT > PWM ....IMO

    YES!!! My fingers are killing me today. If you go this route I would let them sit in the sun for awhile. I still need to finish the passenger seat.

    Not today, but over the weekend. Changed oil & oil filter. Wanted to change the gear oil on the front diff, rear diff, and transfer case but the drain plug was rusted up on the front diff and decided to spray it all with PB blaster and try again later. Promptly forgot about that 'till now. Hopefully that plug doesn't give me too much trouble. Might consider looking for part numbers just in case my ugga duggas aren't enough.

    I just ordered my 285s in falken wildpeak AT3W. I’m so ready I put a lift on 20,000 miles ago and have been beating these tire up so I could up grade

    I tweaked the panel a bit more today. Modified the brackets to allow for more clearance and I’m much happier with the finished product. I also finished routing and labeling the wires. Overall I'm very pleased with how this came out. The only thing I'm leery about is if I'll get any leaks where I routed the wires in the cab. Time will tell.

    Don't know if you're looking to keep that bed rack on all the time, but you could get away with a rocket launcher setup. You could build one with wood & PVC pipe without much difficulty, or fab/buy one of the more aesthetic options:

    https://www.google.com/search?q=tru...USPH0KHQcDDt0Q_AUoA3oECA4QBQ&biw=1536&bih=754

    Also worth noting some can be attached to the hitch as well, so it doesn't have to take up bed space necessarily.

    Found Procomp uca for $300 and it started. Then I got All-Pro off road exp leaf spring kit with the bilstien shocks. Then I found bilstien 6112 fronts for under $600 off of rockauto.com. Found the timbrens bump stops on Facebook marketplace for $100. I ordered the front dif drop and drive shaft drop but ended up making my own drive shaft spacers.

    It took me over a year to get all the parts together. I paid the parts off one at a time. I had my grandma buy it and I would pay her back a little bit at a time until I paid it off and then we ordered the next part/parts. And at tax time my wife asked what else I needed and she ordered the 6112s.

    I thank all of you guys for inspiring me and the build
