    Drove it in the woods (Allegheny National Forest). Got into a pretty dicey situation climbing a narrow and rutted out path in the mud. One side was a steep hill into water, the other a rocky woodland cliff. KO2 + rear locker and A-Trac really came through. 20210714_183831.jpg

    Only regret I have is getting the factory one as to use the whole bed for something high you need to totally remove it which is a pain and inconvenient if your'e out somewhere. Will definitely be looking at replacing at some point with a BAKflip or Lomax.

    Adding my tonneau cover (Lomax) was one of the first mods I did 3yrs ago and I definitely have no regrets.
    The first time you go on a trip of any kind you'll appreciate it!

    wanna be mods
    Well nearly 6 months and a shoulder and wrist surgery later...I got the coilovers off to add preload (had added SSO slimline stage 1&2 and a 10k winch) to regain the lift obtained when the Elka 2.5 DSCs were installed. Also added gusseted spindles, cut the leg tabs of the BAMF FBRB to mate up with the frame end caps and bumper...now to prime and paint, then install them.

    I felt the same way, but only because of the price & aesthetics of a bed cover. I like the look of an open bed, and the truck profile (no shell). However, my taco is not a recreational off roader, so my case usage was transporting groceries/ merchandise from store to store, kid's stroller, bikes / scooter, ez-ups + chairs, etc. All of which I was always un easy about if I needed to leave the truck unattended. I got the Undercover flex Tri-fold cover, which is a low profile cover, so that met my aesthetics requirement. Also got a good deal from @RealTruck here on TW, which made the purchase much easier to accept. (I'm Frugal). Just keep in mind, most bed covers are only going to provide 16.5" to 20" of clearance from bed floor, to tonneau cover. So for camping, shells really have an advantage.

    Only regret I have really, is not having the pop'n lock / oem power tail gate lock.

    In the market for a TRD skid plate as well. Did you get yours locally or were you able to find a decent deal online with shipping?

    I found it on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08ZKQKSSN?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
    it came with the TRD lettering which was a surprise because thepicture doesn't it come with it. The stainless plate is removed and that is where i saw the indentation for the lettering which i was also surprised because the picture doesn't show it either.

    Added the tyger auto running boards. Pretty nice and low profile but unsure I want to keep them. Mostly added for protection from rocks flinging up.9133343E-D5EB-4E9F-8C37-2E9CD8401919.jpg

    Are those the 6.6" blades? I've been debating between those and the 2nd gen OEM running boards

    Is that your custom made bumper? If not, who makes it? I've seen many after market bumpers on here, but not this one. I like it.

    Finally got around to installing my Ironman 4x4 rear diff breather. Yes, I know I paid waaaay too much but I didn't know then what I know now. Anyway it's very cool and should work flawlessly in the tiny bed cubbyhole I never use. Routing is pretty straight forward as is the install. Perhaps I'll run a 2nd line to the front diff someday.

    That's awesome! Looks good. What made you go with SDHQ's setup? I've been interesting in a dual battery setup and can't decide between SDHQ and Offgrid's kit (esp. with the redarc component).

    It’s made by MBRP under there sister company OCF, however they’re getting out of bumpers and such so OCF is no more and everything is on clearance right now. Here’s the website MSRP value

    upload_2021-7-15_20-45-33.jpg

    and here’s what they’re on clearance for on eBay. I’m pretty sure there’s more than one since I bought one last week and the ad is still there.

    upload_2021-7-15_20-47-6.jpg

    I wasn’t expecting to buy a bumper last week but for the price I couldn’t say no. I called them and bought it over the phone instead of going through eBay, I saved nothing though, I just wanted to know why so cheap.
