    I got tired of the water hose constantly being in the way. Not being able to shut the tailgate and hatch at night without putting the hose on the bed was annoying.

    i need to do the same, i swear every morning there is a random spot where they decide to remind me they are on my tacoma. blink for like 4 miles and then stop. I'm probably due, wish I still had access to a tire machine and the programming tools, heck i think subaru might use the same... wonder if i can ninja into my old shop and pop my beads and get them swapped over

    I have been using ROADFAR sensors in my 2008 for 3 years with no problems. $50 for a set of 4 on Amazon. $20 for an extra single for my spare. Walmart tire centers will scan them in for free for walk-ins with no other service.

    is the propane tank part of the water set-up, for hot water or something like that? Or is the tank just next to the water for storage?

    Picked up a 70.00 eBay grill and surround but only used the mesh to work with the OEM chrome. Removed the Raptor lights. Don't want to mess with painting the chrome at this point. The eBay black surround made the front looked unfinished

    Welded up the slot in the tailgate hinge so now removing it takes five minutes and the proper tools instead of thirty seconds and a snort of crank.

    Deleted by rear console. I used a 1/8” sheet of abs plastic with Velcro strips to fill the void. It needed up being the perfect size. Black is what I had laying around but I’ll look into getting a color that matches better.

    New battery. O'Reilly 27R with 2 year warranty. I replace it every three years. This time was about 3.5 years.

    IMG_4403.jpg IMG_4402.jpg IMG_4405.jpg De-badge/re-badge! Only issue is what seems like etching of the paint where the side badges were. Got rid of all the chrome, includiing the Totoya “sombrero” badge and replaced with a killer BH3D “TEQ” badge. Also a TEC decal for the slider, and a Marty McFly TOYOTA decal attached on the inside. A bit hard to see from the outside but I like it reversed and stealthy. Speaking of stealthy, I put in this Bluetooth adapter that plugs right into the back of the OEM stereo! I LOVE that I can keep the original look of the dash, no screens! Sound is completely great for 60 bucks.
    Gen 2 rules!!

    Oh yeah, I also got the “OhSnap” magnetic pop socket style phone grip and mount. It’s really great too

    I just finished yesterday trying to bulletproof my hvac. The blower motor blew on me. So, I put in a new one. I honesty used a duralast from autozone. Let's see how long it lasts compared to the oem. I put in the updated resistor and pigtail. And I did as @Dm93 suggested, I put in a harness for a relay since I run high a lot. Should have no more issues. BTW, heat shrink butt connectors are boss. It's like you've never cut the wires if crimped and shrunk correctly.

    Got the truck back after months of waiting. Just need tires and an alignment. Maybe wheels.

    Possibly needing to upgrade to stiffer leaf springs. Adding a rear bumper soon and the current are to soft.
