    This might be the wrong thread for this question but I figured it would be the place to generate the best/most answers. Sorry if misplaced...

    Is there a running list of vendors with products that are Made in America? It's getting to the point with my build on this site, Insta, and other avenues where I get frequent questions for recs and I want to be deliberate with where I'm sending folks. I have absolutely no problem with companies trying to make a buck. Kudos to those like Cali Raised that think of a business model and see it through. I know first hand, it aint easy and the people talking sh*t are usually the ones that don't know what the hustle actually requires. If they can sell some Chinese-manufactured low profile ditch light brackets for $45, well it's kinda on the customer for not putting in the effort to realize the exact same ones are on Amazon for $10. So please don't think I'm ripping companies that go that route, make your profits!

    However, my preference is in buying from / sending folks to American-made. Not trying to start anything if this is a touchy subject. Just wondering if there is a running list somewhere on here. I believe I saw one not too far back that listed companies doing cool stuff (ie. vet-owned or mom & pop shops) but there's gotta be some good info out there somewhere. Thanks in advance! Keep up the good work!!

    Just moved from a 2011 DCSB to a 2018 DCLB. First mod before I build a sleeping platform I can sleep on without having to go full fetal is thanks to @Kennyk. $10 at Harbor Freight for the mat and $5 in double sided tape. No more bruised knees and spilt drinks. Can’t thank you enough for this bit of cheap genius.

    Bought some ditch lights and bracket. Installed the switch in the back of the cubby that I never use. 20210521_170535.jpg 20210522_210356.jpg 20210522_214210.jpg 20210522_211122.jpg 20210522_225404.jpg 20210522_232510.jpg 20210522_232523.jpg

    Installed the TRD Start/Stop button and replaced the crappy OEM radio knobs on my 2021 with the OEM Rav4 knobs. Radio now has more grip and illumination is preserved. :thumbsup:

    They're not ditch lights if they're not pointing at the ditch. Those are driving lights

    Dealerships are offering real good money on trade-ins, so I took advantage and got a taco upgrade.

    I also purchased the brackets from Amazon but had them coated with Line-X since the winter salt spread on SW Ontario roads will rust everything.

    Headed down to pick up a set of BAMF sliders local to me.. which is really surprising considering I’m from Maine. Picking them up for $475. I’ll just have to take the wife to lunch so she doesn’t get too pissed haha
