    My armchair hypothesis is that short commutes can kill the battery faster not getting fully recharged but that is in no way proven by me. I had to replace mine at pretty much 1 day over my 3 year warranty and have a short 15 minute commute.
    Do those of you who also do frequent replacements have very short commutes? If so, I wonder if a nightly battery tender hook-up might help?

    I would love to have those headlights, but just cant justify the price. For the price they better arrive perfect and packaged well

    I went from a 9" floating screen to a 10" floating screen. So to me I don't see the size upgrade much.

    Mine lasted 6 weeks past my trucks warranty. I could tell by the way it turned over about 3 weeks ago it was going to bite the dust. Just didn't sound like it was turning over as fast. Volt meter I have plugged in the dash showed 11.7 when I turned the key on. Shows 12.8 with the new battery. Glad it died before the dead of winter.

    Yeah they're expensive. I got them for $1253.04, no tax free shipping (Black Friday). Also ordered SS3 max yellows, V5 switchbacks and meso dual color map and dome lights. So much for my stereo budget/ wish list. :spending:

    OEM TRD Pro led's from a stealership in socal. I like those Morimoto ones too, plus they have a 5 year warranty. Hotshot Offroad had a sale on those during Black Friday. They appear to packaged a lot better in this video @ 1:26

    I ordered my meso v5 switchbacks from tacoma lifestyle, but they haven't shipped yet. :angrygirl:

    Well, I've had the truck for 5 years now and never put more than a couple hundred into it. I've decided to keep it a few more years, so that's my excuse for upgrades.

    You have to remove the whole front end to do it...…………………. that does not look enjoyable to myself.

Randy Ellis Rock Sliders? Remote Start? 31" tires Re-Gear Tune? Aluminum low profile front bumper Oil change upgrade Chrome delete?

    Yah that's kind of ridiculous. It's obvious they pulled the light out, cleaned off the glue and put this big gasket back on underneath it. The only thing that would be inconvenient is not being able to stand in the bed to do it.

    I kind of wish I could've gotten my hands in there while they had the light off. I put the new stubby antenna up and I would've loved to just goop up the bottom with waterproof silicone just to make extra sure it never leaks.

    Separately, did you soundproof the whole truck? What do you think? I go back and forth. It's not too loud but sometimes you hit a nasty patch of asphalt that echoes through the whole body.

    Picked up my southern style offroad full plate bumper today. 2 hours round trip to the trucking depot. Shipping things freight isnt great these days. Originally when I ordered in July, it was going to ship to a place 15 minutes from me. Today i got to take a drive because the shipping near me would have double the freight. It was a nice drive and i have the bumper.
    One complaint, im sick and tired of needing to watch a video as the only avenue for instillation instructions. Videos are helpful, but i do miss having some printed instructions with photos. Some companies provide them, and quite a few do not.

    We'll see how instillation goes solo this weekend , maybe use a couple floor jacks....

    I am the opposite. I find it a lot harder to look at paper instructions than follow a video. With the video I can watch them do it step by step and there is not guessing
