    bought a set from crashnburns thread. I’d have to double check which ones.

    Had a door dent fixed finally and added a grill badge. Nice pop of color on the super white I think.

    The Philips that I bought are the ones he recommended for stock wattage replacement. I think they still pull a little more watts than advertised if I remember correctly, but with running the HD wiring harness in conjunction with them, they are running at maximum power and efficiency now.

    Thanks! I'm really impressed with this setup and very pleased. I'm sure the high wattage bulbs would probably look like the sun compared to this but I decided to go this route.

    Today the Tacoma towed a boat to the bay for a water test.
    20210126_130320.jpg
    The crossmember where the front of my traction bar attaches is getting trashed. I'll take pictures of it tomorrow morning before I fix it. It's gotta be done by 11:30 so the above boat's owner can come and pick up his boat from me.

    I had a great short vacation. It was the first time I've ever been in snow that was so light and fluffy. This picture was taken 2 hours before we left to go back home. The blue car in the forefront is ours. Lol.

    3M 5200 (marine/boat) sealant, lasts forever and a day, it's paintable, and doesn't require to be "gobbed" on. It's very messy/gets all over you when it's applied.

    Installed some new Diode Dynamic Fogs. Pretty stoked on them. Hopefully get to see how they work in snow this weekend up in Mammoth.

    We just got mega snow here in the Chicagoland area last night, and more to come later this week. Where do you live that it’s sunny and your still messing with boats? Truck looks great by the way!!

    Thanks! It's my rabbit hole along with fly fishing and surfing. Live in Redondo Beach, CA. It rained yesterday, does that count... :) Ghostship did my sliders and Deaver leaf install. This is up in Utah. Utah Backcountry 2.jpg

    These are the ones I got. Ordered from the U.K. Cuz they aren’t available here. I just went to the site crashnburn posted. They work great. Good light.

    I have those also sitting in my garage. I bought them before I changed my mind about using them.

    Engaged hovertruck mode, and no driveshafts or gear oil. Pulling the guts tomorrow and heading to Zuks house for some very gnarly upgrades

    Tap has some flexible stuff you can use as liner.

    Would someone kind who has black colored interior post a picture of their driver side A pillar? I want to have a look at the grab handle/assist grip on the driver side.
    I bought the parts:
    7461704040B0 Plug, Assist Grip Top
    7461704050B0 Plug, Assist Grip Bottom
    Just want to make sure.
    Thank you!

    Haha! My daughters love the headlights. They also prefer pink or purple, which I'll always oblige!

    San Diego county. Last week it was in the mid 80's and I was taking my shirt off while working during the day. Those weather conditions are gone now though. Either way boating is a all year long activity down here.

    Thanks, I freakin love this truck!

    That is a clean garage! Mine looks like a tornado hit it partially because a friend of mine is storing some stuff in my garage for a few days (for a few weeks now, go figure).
