    2009 4WD Reg cab Taco. Keepin it simple.
    So far I've added an Advance folding bed cover and since removed it. Gave it to my son in Maine, he has an 05 2wd. GT perfect fit seat covers. Weathertech floor mats and window vent visors. Waag center brush/grill guard. Hose clamp tailgate mod. Turned off the seat belt chime. Added Ultra-Gauge. Trailer hitch. Softopper. Replaced sun visors with slide out style. Toyota bed extender. Had Firestone Destinations and now Michelin LTX AT2 in stock size. More mods to come; Fog lights, locking storage in bed, intermittent wipers. Now looking for Radio/HU upgrade. and maybe a lift way down the road.
    I used to get skinny snow tires for my other trucks. They cut through the snow and slush better than the wide tires did. Can't afford two sets now so just working with the stock size

    I've only had my '12 Reg Cab for a month or so. Have it up at Snowshoe Mtn on a snowboarding trip and finally got to test out the 4WD this morning in the 5" of fresh snow. Truck handles great even with the crappy OEM passenger tires.

    They do ride a little more stiff being a load range E but they are still great and will go through anything so far.

    Sweet! Those are the exact size and tires I'm saving to get. Economically a win all the way around. Do you have anymore pics? Specifically front, back, and a full side shot? Thanks.

    Also nice sleeping arrangement in the back. :cool:

    Also tore into a Warn 9.5XP winch that came with a AllPro hybrid tube bumper i bought recently from a guy i met at the dealership. Gonna resell the bumper but was hoping to keep the winch. Well hooked up the cables and nothing worked. So far i'm sure the solenoid is toast and this is what i found when i cracked open the motor. :(

    Ok, just got the All-pro bolt on (yeah right, goes right on:D) sliders done and put on. I wanted bolt on so I had the option of removing them. Well these things will be sold with the truck now. What a pain in the farging icehole!

    Still might have to get the front drivers side welded because the self tappers are not holding well. These things were so warped it was a complete pain to put them on. It has kind of spoiled my attitude on All-pro. I took a chance because of a sale price and now this might be the last product I get from them. I know it's hard to make a bolt on product like this for millions of vehicles but there could have been some better quality control as far as keeping these things square in the jig while welding them up.

    They were so warped we had to use a jack in areas just to get a good frame grab. Mix matching bolts (longer) to pull the sliders to the frame, etc...and there is still a gap in a few places even after using an impact wrench to try and pull it close. Ridiculous. On a positive note they are solid (except for the drivers side front) and should hold up well to abuse.

    Scratched the powder coat (i know:rolleyes:) already just putting them on. If anybody wants pics, look'em up, I'm too frustrated right now. :mad:

    if they warped i would have called allpro right away and had them deal with it man, maybe they had a bad batch

    either id still call them up, your post was hard to follow the way you posted i got lost in words and no spacing, but my phone sucks for reading longer posts aswell

    Well I had them mocked up on the truck by a local off road shop and then had them powder coated. The shop said they were warped but obviously didn't say or realize how bad. I have had them for months because of lack of funds for powder and stuff and just now got it done.

    I know they stand behind their stuff but if you are sending something across the country like that I just think the quality control should have been better. They are on now and like I said, if anything, I will have a bead run down on the drivers side front mount and then they will be solid. It sure was frustrating. :cool:

    Installed a Battery Bug, actually a week ago, been watching it to get a better opinion.

    http://www.argusanalyzers.com/battery-monitors.html

    Seems to operate as advertised and looks encouraging. Only time will tell.
    I used the hand-held unit (instead of the long leads version) so I could readily move it from vehicle to vehicle.
    The readout alternates between battery condition and voltage. You don't have to keep checking it as it emits beeps when below 10% capacity remaining.

    Just screwed the connectors to the battery under an additional nut on the clamps. Used a heavy rubber band to secure it to the cross member on the battery holder. Made the band out of an annular slice off a motorcycle inner tube. EZ
