    Glad you finally got it. Mine is sitting in my little shop ready to go but I'm putting in a new sound system and sure don't need two projects going at the same time. Take some pictures of major steps if you don't mind. Your truck looks great!

    Yup, I have one of my vehicles dynamatted from top to bottom and back to front. Most of the sound comes through the windows now which makes it very noticeable.But still a lot quieter than if it didn't have it

    Lights. In the spirit of Christmas, I put lights on the truck.

    DD SS3 Pro Combo yellow ditch
    DD SS3 Pro Fogs
    LED interior lights (all of them including mirrors)
    LED Reverse lights
    LED License plate lights

    And then I did the window "deflectors" or visors. I got the matte low profile versions.
    Finally topped it off with a "bug" deflector for the hood. The new version with the small hump at the front. Looks great on darker trucks but if I had a lighter color I'd avoid it.

    Phone mount too. Was an eventful day. Pics to follow on my build log tomorrow.

    Those are good batteries. Mine was leaking and was replaced under warranty with a Toyota True-start shortly after buying my truck in 2017. Still works after almost 5 years, but I can tell I'll need a new one soon.

    Fog lights came today. Right lights this time. Quick got them in. They might be aimed a little high. Not sure. They are pretty awesome. Big hats off to Rogue Offroad for handling things even though the mix up was at Diode Dynamics. And hats off to DD for quickly getting the correct lights to me.

    Top set of pics is on my garage from about 25 feet. Bottom set is on the road.

    I have a 5 min commute and still on stock battery July 18 build. Haven’t topped off or anything and seems to be chugging along. I don’t thing it’s ever really started with a confidence though

    I think for those complaining about removing a shell to perform the job should really look at what’s involved in the install instructions (even if it’s the trim ring only and not a replaced light)

    I hate going to a job when the customer doesn’t provide enough room/space for me to do the job… a case of not understanding what it takes or lack of consideration for anyone but themselves. For me it’s a matter of safety- I won’t contort or risk injury to work around your mess (I’ve done it and been rewarded for it unfortunately which is why I won’t do it again)

    fyi a bead of sealant needs to be put down around the whole perimeter and not just the top of the light. Pdf instructions are floating around on this site if you search it. Also I get the not broke don’t fix but my theory is part of the leaks are due to gasket degradation over time (they were originally thin which is why a new light gets the revised, thicker, gasket) so by doing nothing now may cost you a headache down the road- interior rip out due to mold infestation. Food for thought

    It likely also has something to do with climate, and not just in a North or South way. In Oklahoma I went through at least two batteries in the 4 years I had my last car there, but in the last four years in Massachusetts I never needed to replace my battery right up until it got totaled last week. It had to be something to do with how the cold-snaps happen in Oklahoma that caused batteries to pre-maturely crap the bed. Up here they just get cold and stay cold for months at a time and they seem to be ok. I did have to replace the battery in my wife's car early after the move, so who knows.

    I’ve had a damaged canopy roof panel sent twice because of freight shipper damage (both different companies). I had to persuade a resolution that cost me more but I can say it was worth the extra to get my 3rd roof sent Not damaged

    Awe man, bummer dude, hopefully you get unmanaged replacements. I talked to Sparks Toyota a while back and they said they were not shipping any headlamps until further notice because of shipment damage. They said once they get a reliable process for shipping them then they would resume. Ive got the harness and will order from Merritta Toyota who has good prices and go get them.
