    The weapon should be like in the James Bond movie where it only shoots based on finger print recognition.

    Local taco FB group. Not exactly what I envisioned but for the price I paid, and on a 1 day time crunch I’m very pleased with it.

    Removed AVS logo by simply applying a small dab of acetone on a paper towel and a quick lite wipe on the ventvisor. Came off like a dry erase marker. IMG_20211228_173442.jpg IMG_20211228_173456.jpg

    Greased the front propeller shaft. One on each u-joints. Gave it 4-5 pumps before if started oozing out. The rear nipple was a PIA to get to, even after removing the cover. Also, check the propeller shaft torque. The rear propeller shaft are sealed.
    Wish I had one of these.https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00H7LPKKU
    It would have made it much easier.

    Maybe someone on here can make a PNP harness for older Tacomas and a template for cutting out the insert. That way eveyone can enjoy stock bed lights. Hint hint!

    I made an attic from a net I got off of Amazon and a lot of zip ties (they corral the center of the net, cutting it into two pieces, so I can see out the sliding rear window). I use it to store sweatshirts and other light wearable gear. I have an access cab I took the rear seats out of, so no worries about the net hitting someone in the head. it is hooked at its rear on the hooks Toyota installed at the rear of the cab and then hooks under the headliner at its front.

    "...I will eventually need to replace my factory rubber mats simply because they are a little hard to clean." I have the the OEM Toyota mats and find them easy to clean with a stiff bristle brush. I use the same brush for the WeatherTech mats with equally good results. Leave either out to dry and the sun will take care of them in about 10 minutes. A vacuum does wonders for those tall ridges.

    Two immediate questions about the G19 holster. What brand and is it your preference to have the spare mag with round facing away vs towards the G19?

    Can you take some pics of how you have the fire extinguisher mounted. What size extinguisher and mount are you using?

    That looks like a lot of work! lol -- I sound like Stiffler!

    My first NEW Truck was my 2021 TRD Sport.

    It's a shame I had to add the "Tailgate Lock" as well as the "Bed Lights" after the fact as upgrades/add-ons. I'm just glad they were plug n play and priced within reason.

    Looking at installing LED bed lights
    Have a SR5 with no switch of any kind, and assuming the wires aren’t in the back for plug n play after researching.
    I’m thinking about running 12v from battery directly to an OEM bed light switch and not power the illumination side of switch when dash lights are on. Understanding the need for inline fuse, and will appreciate using the bed lights on demand without key or dome lights. Only thing I’m undecided about is adding a relay. Wiring a switch hot and relay seems redundant. Haven’t seen anyone doing this application
    Any thoughts?

    Really just a test fit for the install. Gonna move it around and ultimately may go with something else. This isn't the permanent placement. The brand however is a Desantis Pegasus

Future Plans: Raptor line whole exterior. Better upper arms.
    It was definitely a massive improvement and worth it to me, but I'm not an audiophile so I'm sure they would disagree.

    I also wanted to see if people were right and that adding the amp is as drastic a change as the speakers were so I installed them first and listened, then installed the amp and they are indeed correct.

    On the Evo Sport, is the entire gull wing a window, or just the small slider part? Love those toppers, the adventure model too. Looks great!

    All kinds of little easy stuff
    Today i plugged in my truck...I do like the new style with it built in. Looked for the plug on the wife's pathfinder & couldn't find it, apparently the dealership decided to stick it up where you can't see it except from under the vehicle. it's been colder then -30 deg C for nearly a week, so will take it out for a drive for the first time in a week just to get it running & not frozen in place. Winter in Canada sucks!!!

    p.s. you guys posting these pics with no snow & clean trucks can go to hell!! just kidding:annoyed:
