    Thank you! I ordered the parts from OEM Part Source. The trim piece, 120v outlet, and 12v outlet are three different part numbers. Most people who do this mod order an OEM USB insert for the right side instead of the 12v outlet like I did, but I needed to add the 12v outlet back to the interior since I no longer have one in my dash.

    The part numbers are here in this thread: https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads...-cab-120vac-400w-anytime-power-outlet.622505/

    I ordered the plug and play harness kit from KTJO 4x4 for this mod, but it's been crickets ever since I placed my order about 3 weeks ago. I knew it was a gamble, but I thought I'd give it a shot instead of hacking up the factory wiring. I figure I'll wait another week or so, then dispute the charge with my bank. Thankfully, another member on here had the parts to make me up the harness (I think he may be planning to sell them, but I don't want to steal his thunder, so I won't spill the beans), so I ended up not having to hack up the factory wiring after all.

    It's a small circular piece in the grill piece that covers the tweeter on the passenger side. I don't have the sensor, so there's just a plastic circular plug in it. I'm assuming if you have the sensor, it's replaced with said sensor and is wired underneath.

    Front light bar. Auto locking tailgate
    I’ve upgraded:
    1. Interior lights to LED
    2. Catalytic converter security plate
    3. Front subdued light bar
    4. New phone mount
    5. Ordered a shell
    6. Ordered locking lug nuts
    7. Bed mat
    8. Auto locking tailgate
    9. Changed chrome badging to black matte

    Thinking about :
    1. Wheels (current 25 positive offset. Prefer neutral offset-will move my tire out almost an inch)
    2. Maybe slight increase in tire size (don’t want to put a lift kit in it)

    If you have auto headlights, the light sensor is under the plastic trim piece by front windshield on passenger side. There is a sensor that is plugged in and can easily be unplugged if you want disable the light sensor (LED DRLs only I believe). You can still remove the OEM tweeter without worrying about that sensor if that's a non-issue for you.

    I disabled the light sensor myself for over a year now.

    Good question. Guess I should open a bidding war for it. Ammo is in short supply these days. :rofl:

    I go back and forth with the removal of the pillar vinyl. On one hand I like the appearance of a whole side window effect; then on the other I like the separation effect that you now have.

    Well done.

    Lights, stickers, audio, and a grille…
    This is the light sensor for the auto headlights… Passenger side tweeter cover… There is not a lot of room to work up there, and the wires attached to that sensor are pretty short, and the connector is nearly impossible to disconnect in the amount of space you’re working in. I was able to switch the tweeter out without disconnecting the light sensor, but man what a pain.

    Speaking of this light sensor? I think mine has failed about a month ago. Has anyone had this happen?

    Installed my winter storage for the RTT and bed rack setup. It uses an electric hoist to take it off the truck and lift it to where I can use ratchet straps to secure it onto the ceiling of the garage. Pretty happy with how it turned out.

    Basically we found a piece of metal that was about 4 inches wide and happen to be perfect for my needs.
    It already had a curved bottom so we took the corners and folded them upward, this is what the lower rim sits on with the mount. There was already cut slots in the piece of metal and these worked perfectly for the bed rail to mount to using 3/8th bolts into T slot nuts. A quick cinch strap around it to hold it and voila. I'll add some durable rubber between the tank and mount for wear and will post some photos with and without the tank for you.
