    Basically you have the negative hooked up to ground..in my case the ground is in my aux fuse box. The positive is hooked up to the bottom of the switch pin. When you open the hood the switch pin make a connection with the positive (the switch is spring loaded) and when you close the hood, the pin disconnects from the power allowing the power to be off. Very simple to be honest.

    Here's a short link to a video.. YouTube wouldn't let me upload it. I hope this helps.

    Correct. No drone, just a tiny bit of rasp up higher in RPMS but In sub 3200 RPMs or so it sounds great and has character finally. If you find me on IG I can send you a vid of me revving

    Do it! It isn't the kind of hardcore off-road picture that most here will drool over, but it is colorful and shows the truck being used to carry an un-ordinary load in a setting that most folks will never get to drive their Tacoma.

    probably took longer to paper/mask it off than it would have removing the grill.

    How many leaf springs are in a stock 2015 TRD Sport? Looking at other 2015 Sports mine appears to have a little more lift. How do I measure it?

    Most come with a 2 pack but a TSB exists for them to be replaced for free for a three pack. Since most don’t ever use it as a work truck they will never notice it or need more so the less expensive 2 pack goes in.
