    Any one know of or can share a link to a front grill trim ring for the Tacoma. 2018 model trd sport. I’m looking to delete the chrome trim ring. Hoping for an over lay type item if it out there.

    I’m not sure the part number, but try searching 2018 Tacoma grill bezel. That should bring up what you’re looking for.

    Some also remove and plasti dip or paint them. Cheaper option than the 100 or so bucks for a new one.

    Interesting. Make sure the aluminum if you guys have it doesn't touch any of the steel bed. It's called galvanic corrosion....two dissimilar metals touching. So in this case the steel will sacrifice itself for the aluminum. Just a word of caution.

    Good catch! I use a hood hinge mount for my HAM antenna and have to remove it/unscrew it from the base when going through the car wash. The antenna base is aluminum and the hinge mount base is steel/chrome. Noticed it had gotten hard to unscrew then I realized the dissimilar metals thing and added a layer of Anti-seize. No more "hard to get unscrewed" now.

    Did the same. No tarp in mine through. Bang a nice gouge in the bed with first scoop. OUCH.

    Sure could tell I had about 1,000lbs in the bed when it drove. No issues - just different.

    Got it to work it. Wait til I have to put livestock and stuff in the back! :)

    Installed Diode Dynamics SS3 pro driving lights behind the grill. Bought the lights with yellow lenses then swapped to clear so I could get that 4k color goodness.

    Mounted using the BAMF bracket which is well designed and solidly made. So many options for lights now!

    Made the Taco go boom.

    Waiting on one more piece of gear (DSP) to go in that gap on the passengers side and then I'll finish cleaning up the wiring and trim out the rest of the exposed metal. 2 weekends of work well spent.

    Now I just need to get some leather seat covers and the interior will be mostly done and I can move on to the exterior mods. Waiting on my roof rack currently.

    Yeah. The tarp was there so my wife and I could pull out the mulch after removing some off the top. Not to protect the bed. It helps keep the majority of the ribs in the plastic bed liner from filling with mulch. That way I don't spend an hour sweeping out the bed of the truck. It essentially boils down to me being lazy. I was directing the woman that was operating the front end loader while getting the mulch. I've actually seen a bucket smack the top of a truck cab near the brake light. Not a good day.

    I've been looking for a solution to mount some lights behind my grill, and this bracket is perfect! Thank you for sharing, as I never knew it existed. Ordering now :spending: (I have a love/hate relationship with is forum and my wallet!)

    Finally received the 2nd part of my driver’s side grab handle.
    E487A137-A68C-4083-A5CE-CBB51230809D.jpg
    It was definitely worth the wait. I know a lot of people bash KTJO a lot on this thread. I’m sure their experience is legitimate, but I’d like to share mine. Since I logged on their website to order the handle, they were honest about long wait times with pre orders. They made note that shipments were tied up from overseas and I figured it would take a while due to all the posts I’ve read. They were honest when they shipped part of the order rather than waiting for the handles to arrive. So I at least installed the pillar ahead of time. I received emails with shipping labels and information about the order throughout the process. Maybe some people had bad experience but if it is due to long wait time, that’s most likely the society we live in now a days. Patience is waiting for what you want most, not what you want now. Hope the rest of you that ordered have a good experience too! This product was well worth the wait to me because I grab that location every time I get in the truck and hate holding the roof of door to get in.
