    Well got my motofab 2 inch leveling kit on! Sunk down about another 1/8 of a n inch so looks a little more level, but overall happy with the look! Will be putting on my rims as soon as the company resends me the right rims! Took about 4 and half hours after we messed up the thread on bolt on and had to fix it.

    I do a good amount of wiring at work but definitely not my strong suit.

    I'm working with a company right now and were finalizing an even cleaner version. Basically just going to be the relay box and two connectors. Same thing that I was trying to do but looks more professional. Its not for the automotive industry, but can definitely be used for this application. Costs about $200 fully wired with all relays and fuses.

    Ill see if I can find a picture of it.

    Not sure my family and I did a secret santa and we all send gifts to each other. They came in the mail in a generic box, with no logos, so i have genuinely no idea. They had no markings

    Easiest thing i have ever done. I was crapping my pants not wanting to do it but it turned out simple. Don't even have to take the air bag out. Just move it and sit it on top of the steering column.

    take out 2 side bolts covered by plastic caps
    sit horn/Airbag assy. on top of Column
    the rest is a few bolts to take out and plugs from old controls
    Then replace with new and done.

    I followed this guy. But he is doing way more than we need to do. https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/2014-steering-wheel-control-install.362309/


    But turned out real easy.

    When you take out the two side bolts this is what happens.(the horn and air bag are now loose and easily moved). the rest is plug and play. the horn is covering the couple screws and plug we need to swap.

    I didn't(disconnect the battery). Yes i probably should have but it's so easy I didn't even think about it. Once those two side bolts are out there is plenty of slack in the airbag/Horn wires to move it around. I moved and placed it slowly but did not disconnect my battery. It wouldn't hurt though. better safe than sorry I guess.


    and no you don't need to disconnect the airbag at all !!!!! That's the reason i was afraid at first. Once i see i didn't have to touch it I felt much better.

    Saw you had a supercharger in your signature about your mods, was it a TRD? And how much was it to install, or do it your self?

    Yes i do. What a nightmare that was!!!!! I found out about them(because of you guys!!!) after they became extinct.

    So it cost me an arm and a leg. No lie, it actually cost me as much as it would to get a new arm and leg....ha
    And that was after searching and searching for months to even find one that had the mounting kit with it.

    But it is a real TRD one. Installed myself. Had a garage for a weekend and went slow. Brought to Toyota for the flash the next Monday. Came out good actually. Love it. Not necessary but love it. And thanks for noticing

    Don't make fun of me but I think it cost me 6 grand when it was all said and done. (I hear installs go anywhere from $800 to $1800 depending on the dealer).

    P.S. i also have the smaller pulley on it for a little more boost.
