    Unless I’m missing something my ‘08 Tacoma standard cab does not have DRLs. I bought and installed LED Amber parking lights hoping it would make a big difference however as you can tell I really can’t tell much of a difference, if any. Has anyone come up with a way to add DRLs to the Tacoma base truck?

    Today was a fickle bitch. It invloved 4 separate trips for things, 1 to Homedepot, two to a local hardware store, and 1 to Oreilys. It involved a Sawzall, broken bolt, broken bolt extractor in a broken bolt, and a relocated bumpstop.
    Let's just say Carbide saw blades definitely saved the day and a huge thank you to @crashnburn80 for the help. I didnt take many pictures but I installed new beck arnley LCAs and wheelers superbumps in the front. The good news is, at least one of the superbumps is in the factory location!
    Total job time was roughly 9 hours. Truck does feel a lot less clunky over bumps, absolutely need an alignment now.

    That was more of a PITA than it should have been. Those Milwaukee Torch Carbide sawzall blades are money for sure, I'll never bother with buying another blade type for cutting steel, "Torch" is a very appropriate name. And man that sheared bump stop bolt got ridiculously stupid, fast. The Dewalt XR impact was also a huge time saver in dealing with the seized broken cotter pins, being able to just shear them off with the castle nut.

    I did snap this one too with the first set of metal blades. You know it is going well when vehicle projects require a sawzall. Good times! Glad we were able to get you buttoned up and back before dinner.

    I might know a spot. I can engage my fancy factory hydraulic Fox jounce bumpers there regularly on the street.

    It was about 9 hours of work between me and a buddy. I feel like 7 of those hours were spent just grinding and taking measurements. Well worth it though. I'd send you more photos but I'm currently deployed lol
