    Traded it in =(

    Bought my Tacoma new off the lot in 2013 and put 82,000 miles on it. It was an amazing truck and I loved it, plus I did a ton of mods including a supercharger! But at the end of the day I needed to be able to tow way more weight than the tacoma could handle (18k lbs gooseneck trailer).

    The Tacoma is now for sale north of Dallas, TX if anyone is looking for a deal! https://www.glennpolkdodgechryslerj...toyota-tacoma-base-gainesville-tx-id-42732880

    How it sat when I sold it:




    The new truck is a beast!

    It was surprisingly easy.. I was super intimidated but it ended up being a breeze. Took me about an hour per door. Open for questions if you want to DM.

    I had a local shop do the install… couldn’t get time off work and quite frankly I didn’t have the time. Took them one day to install.

    Mine looked like that this morning. Finally finished installing two amps so I cleaned the bench off after mowing the lawn.

    Cycled the suspension after getting the @ARCHIVE u bolt flip kit with the superbumps and came to realize that I need to space them up a little bit with the extended shocks. Got the superbump 3/8 spacer and ground the bolt down that they offer just a little as with the low profile kit archive makes, the bolt bottoms out.

    Got the Poly Performance taco tab kit to eliminate having to align my truck every time that I go wheeling. Now will just have to adjust toe. This will also eliminate the cam tabs from becoming bent.

    Leaving this here to follow up, hopefully it helps someone. I figured out my TPMS issue.

    I was cruising Tacomaworld and saw a post where someone showed the TPMS receiver in the dash behind the AC controls...right where I was routing the legs of my Kicker Key harness yesterday. I pulled the AC controls out, no harness attached to the receiver. So I pulled the center console out, and right there under the cup holders where it SHOULDN’T be is the harness.

    I yanked apart enough of the dash to shove my hand up in there, reconnected the harness, TPMS system is happy again. I must’ve knocked the harness loose while pulling wires. :annoyed:

    I recently replaced my head unit with a kenwood, and a maestro RR for the steering wheel controls. The sheer amount of wires you gotta shove back in that space is nuts.

    Today I completed my transmission drain and fill with a proper temp check fill level thing. See the transmission thread for a detailed account on how many different ways you can do that wrong, oy vey. And installed wheelers/trail gear U bolt flip kit with superbumps completing my rear suspension upgrade. I have mixed feelings about the flip kit, probably just whiny complaints, but it's on now and should be fine.
