    I really need to do this for my Tacoma out here in AZ.

    At the minimum my roof and potentially everywhere else. Did you post a link to the source you got yours from? Need to see what the budget may be and actually get this done this year.

    I agree: DIY solutions seem like they're saving money but really don't do what this stuff was specifically engineered for.

    My daughter fit in the back of my Pop’s access cab in a rear and front facing car seat. Tight, but it worked.

    I got a double cab and she got in there with room to spare.

    I mean I know just a child and myself would fit but from what i'm reading the front passenger seat basically needs to be pushed all the way forward and the back in the forward position as well. I pretty much need my drivers seat pushed pretty far back to be comfortable so my wife wouldn't really be able to sit behind me either.

    Just not gonna work. Not a big deal to swap it for a double cab or something else... just need to decide what that something else will be.

    Sweet job site find! Leaving the jobsite and this sucker was leaning against the 30yd dumpster. Drilled a hitch pin hole and added a couple pins and she’s ready to go!9921B5F5-C0E4-42F8-997C-080E00B92D92.jpg

    I'm thinking of doing the same. Nice steal for $100. I don't really need to upgrade to an aftermarket bumper but no chrome looks good.

    I like them a lot. The Lite Tackle (tan one) is mine and the sea foam Ultralite is my wife’s. The UL is an easy throw and go. The LT has a lot of storage in the hull and the flat transom makes it easy to mount my trolling motor on. They are 2 quality yaks.

    Here's a tip (It works) Install some industrial Velcro on either side of the bracket where the tailgate closes on the antenna bracket. It will protect your paint hen the bracket flexes. Here's a pic of one side (tailgate side) of the bracket the other side has it too.

    The 75-822 is a great CB. I keep the spare battery pack and mobile antenna in the truck for "out of the vehicle" radio work. I have a firestik mounted just behind the cab on mine.

    So im thinking about copying your rear set up but have no experience with what works and what doesnt, will the 14 inchers provide enough up travel?

    De-badged the tailgate. they left all the glue behind so it took a while. Going to wrap it in Matte black when I have enough time one of these days. Didn't turn out so bad for being 12 years old
    And of course my doggo has to photo bomb every time I try to take a picture of anything.

    Good Idea! I'll do that to mine too.

    Check the bracket to make sure the mounting hole is big enough. I had to drill mine to 1/2" and scrape some of the powder coat off to make sure it grounded correctly.
