    Correct, the backside of the rav4 ones have a small cover that pops off and is not used on the taco radio. After that, you just pull off the oem ones and push the rav4 knobs into place. I got the info from a thread here.

    What I did today… found the ‘clunk’ sound. Any one ever have a Fox dampener reservoir give it up like this? It’s only about 18months old and less than 10k miles.

    I would get a can or jar of the touch up paint and do it that way... I think they even make it in a spray can. Your paint code is on the door jamb sticker...

    9/26/21 - I had just gotten back home after spending just over a hour at the carwash and had a bite to eat, then rinsed out my microfiber towels and hung those up to dry in the apt. then I said to myself, "Self that sounds like a combine outside my window in the field cutting beans!" Sure enough. Spewing a cloud of thick dust and soybean remnants out it's ass!! So I hurried up and moved my truck and while doing so I thought a chocolate malt sounded good. So decided to drive uptown to the local Dairy Queen while the farmer finished cutting the beans. Took a few pictures when I got home of the freshly combined field behind my shiny taco. :) I highly recommend Meguiar's Ceramic Spray in the bright blue bottle. I use it as a drying aid and it sure makes the silver taco look good. So I have since calmed down and am going to watch some football and the NASCAR race from Las Vegas tonight. Cheers!

    And done. Wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Harder to remove the bumper caps than reinstalling. I used Hyperdip in Shadow Black. Turned out really nice. 1 can will do both.

    This is a good source. A little pricey but a good product.

    Got back from the tire store with my new AT3s.


    Finished installing the rest of my Rough Country seat covers. They bring the black interior together and adds an additional seat back pocket on the driver side!
    Pro tip #1: Don’t let the seat forward/aft adjustment change after you remove the seat or you won’t understand why nothing lines up.
    Pro tip #2: There’s something that looks like a cigarette burn under the seat mount…don’t text your smoker-friend who borrowed your truck last year passive aggressively about putting holes in your carpet. It’s on both sides and is clearly something for the seat.

    I’m preparation for our camping trip coming up I went ahead and removed the rear seats and built a platform for our fridge. I also ran the wiring for my solar panel.

    It’s no Goose Gear , but for under $100 I’m happy with it :rofl:

    Excuse the mess .. lol
