    Still in planning phase ...
    The extra capacity battery has its own charging cable that goes from USB to a pin type connector on the battery itself and so far it works, just have to watch for the one you get, I got mine from Mirkit US based company that deals in UV series

    I have an ADD one and I mounted it to my intake bracket. You might be able to mount it to the side of your power tray. That is how this one is suppose to be mounted.

    Installed the 2TPAM that I’ve had sitting around for about a year now. Also a couple more black out pieces...dash and 4WD switch. Only thing left is the steering wheel controls. But that’ll be another day!

    Yeah I bought a USB charger for my extended battery but like i said it won't let the radio work when it's charging. I'll have to try it on my X to see if it's any different than my R

    Finally got some fog lights for my Allpro bumper. Diode Dynamics SS3 pro amber driving pattern, actually took them off my Tahoe just to see if they fit, luckily DD is having a good labor day sale so another set and on the way to go back on the Tahoe. These things are the bomb!

    Still need to adjust them properly.

    Its been a while since I posted (been lurking for years.. LOL :) ) but just did a mod today you guys might be interested in. Sorry if this is covered somewhere else on the site, I looked but couldn't find anything.. and the lights I bought had no Amazon reviews so I thought I'd spend $70 CAD and give them a try...

    I'm posting youtube vid's for the first time so hope they work. the blinker has a Sequential blink that I think looks better than stock. :)

    Bought them off Amazon and here's the link if anyone's interested:

    Just ordered my 3rd set of Clazzio seat covers to put in a 3rd Tacoma. They have 10% off right now for covers under $599 which suits my access cabs. If you are considering seat covers I STRONGLY recommend Clazzios.
    1st pair LEATHER in my 2016 3rd gen
    20210524_211339.jpg
    2nd pair PVC in my 2012 2.5 gen
    20210803_150834.jpg
    Ordered dark gray PVC for my 2008 2nd gen. $233 SHIPPED.
    Over $599 gets $75 off. The only area that is leather is the perforated center insert. The rest is pvc. After well over 5 years they looked like new when I sold the 2016. The bolsters, sides and back were pvc and they never had any issues. That is why I now go with pvc which have perforated center inserts as well. They look identical to the leather.

    Just a grocery getter
    Got quite a few things done this weekend.

    First things first. New beef came in :bananadance:

    DBEBDD24-9AC4-4007-BD58-0D68FE3A9B23.jpg

    I was able to do my transfer case and rear differential oil changes. Need to drop the front skid to do the front diff which I’ll get to this coming weekend

    C49C9D5F-0241-470F-8235-7076EFEC4BB9.jpg

    I also painted my new toolbox drawer handles. Looks much better with the black and green

    B08879E2-7DF9-497D-8345-47CF2DCFA5D4.jpg

    coming this weekend will be the front differential oil change and I’m going to hopefully soundproof the roof. Then the rust will be taken care of before getting fluid filmed

    Ermahgerd I didn’t know that existed and now I want one. Kept seeing everything that’s available for Jeep’s and third gens, but I like that a lot.

    Vids didn’t come up for me, but those look promising. I’d been eyeballing the Morimoto version but these are half the price.

    2006 rad red offroad
    Around 2 months ago i did the rubicon, the trip beat the truck up pretty good, so ive been stock piling parts to fix alot of issues ive had.

    This is the first of many things ill be doing over the next few weeks.

    Usually i wheel with a close to empty bed, only a spare and a jack. On the rubicon i had about 600lbs more, as a result of all the large drop offs i bent my frame.

    Ive been wanting to bob the bed since i saw @EatSleepTacos do it. But i wanted a bit more clearance as i always seem to rip out my taillights.

    So heres what i came up with...

    I still have a few things left to do,
    The ratchet strap im the last pic will be replaced with a crossbar to brace the bedsides.
    Still need to box the frame and build a bumper
    And mount some brakes lights

    I took 12.5 inches off the frame and removed the bumper that stuck out another 6.5 inches, so i took 19 inches off total and will add 2 inches for a bumper. I tapered in the sides around 3 inches on each side.
    The tailgate is solid mounted for now, maybe in the future ill build a hinge for it.

    Imo short beds look goofy when thier bobbed, but i dont think it turned out too bad.
