    I got as a set for all 4 doors, 8 pieces total. Each handle is 2 pieces. All the long handle pieces had the same part number. The little pieces had different part numbers for front doors but the same part number for the rear doors.

    I really like the cooper discoverer tire brand & had a SUPER hard time deciding between the two when buying my new tires recently but still ended up going with my Toyo open country all terrains which we’re almost the same price, My last tires were the Nitto Terra grapplers that I really did NOT care for to be honest, so many places I’d have to throw my truck in 4x4 with those Nittos that I couldn’t get out of in 2wd but now with my Toyos I’ve gone back and jump right out, really crazy how just a little tiny bit different tread design makes a world of difference! I love my Toyos but next time around I’ll be going with the coopers just out of curiosity!!

    VERY smart!! I’ll be following suit the next time I change my front diff fluid, I have no idea what would posses Toyota to use that Hex plug? Just a nightmare waiting to happen, I was sooooooo nervous when I did my last drain of my front diff with that thing, thanks for posting this I’ll definitely be getting that new bolt. Thank you!! Cheers!!

    I couldn’t find any available for purchase from the US. It took about 2 and a half weeks for the radio to show up. The website was out of stock so I purchased mine from their eBay store. The dash kit it built into the radio and fits all 05-15 Tacomas. It also comes with a pre made wiring harness that also fits all 05-15 Tacoma’s so you’ll have extra plugs that you don’t use.

    Here is the model I bought.

    DO NOT use MEK!! MEK could dissolve the flare and it is highly carcinogenic. I use Coleman fuel for sticker residue. Using a pair of gloves, put some on a rag and hold it on the area to give it some time to loosen the adhesive. It will take some tie, but will work. I use CF on all kinds of materials to get price stickers off and it does not attack the surface. The soaking in Goo Gone sounds like it works as well.

    Installed a curt hitch receiver today. All tacomas produced should include tow packages IMO, but oh well. Also picked up an OEM bed mat last month!
