    How was the install? They don’t really have instructions on the website and I read you don’t need the oem straps from the off-road model

    A few mods here and there and counting....
    All doors and back wall were done years ago with Dynamat extreme. Can't wait to go for a test drive later to see the difference.

    I noticed a big difference when driving in the rain just by doing the roof.

    I love my carpet mats even though they're tougher to keep them clean than rubber. I like how they feel on my feet when driving, and they don't slip or move around.

    This and that...
    Wash and Nu Finish. Definitely an improvement. Also tried this ceramic coating that restores the black in the plastic. Supposed to last up to a year. We’ll see. Strong stuff though, wear gloves and don’t get any on the paint. Same stuff as this but different packaging and $11 at HD. Took off the front wind deflector that it came with too.

    I switch from the weather techs to carpet when it looks as if the snow has truly stopped.

    In all honesty, the install at first was really confusing. There were install instructions given to me when I ordered it, but they were a little confusing and what I did was go onto the website, look at pictures and figured it out for myself. No, you do not need the oem offroad straps. The OEM straps go across the skid, as where these straps attach to brackets that you bolt onto each side. The whole thing took me about an hour to do (with figuring it out). If you need more pictures let me know and I can take pictures of each of the brackets, straps, and mounting bolts.

    I received one concerning my 2012 Tacoma, threw it out and haven’t gotten another one.
    I do keep getting recall notices for my 2005 Corolla which was totaled.

    In the process of adding heated glass to the mirrors and came across a little bit of rust under where the mirror attachs to the door. Sanded out rust, a bit of primer and then paint. Won't see it under the mirror, so quality of finish isn't important, but should address the rust issue.

    There's absolutely a law that states this, just depends on the cop I guess. I've driven passed more cops with my red halos than I've been pulled over by

    Ordered new Beck Arnley LCAs, ordering OEM toyota hardware for them and some wheelers offroad super bumps f/r today also. Went out Mountain Biking and when I went to open my canopy to sit on the tail gate, one of the cables snapped, so I Jerry rigged that as well.

    Today was a good day. Gave away my chrome rear bumper and chrome tube side steps to a nice couple from CA. They are aware of Tacomaworld, but not members....
