    I've got the slightest of leak at the rear of the cover. There is a thread floating around about it, with hints on how to fix it. It's just a trickle, not a big deal. I'd buy the Diamondback all over again if I had to. Sturdy, secure, and looks awesome.

    Got my Diode Dynamics SAE Pro fogs installed (now just need to find a nice level place to get them aimed properly before rockin' em).

    Thanks to @memario1214 at Hotshot Offroad for the sale! :thumbsup:

    I added these “saddle bags” both driver and pax side organizer that someone else posted previously. LLKUANG Center Console Seat Tray Glove Box Organizer for Toyota Tacoma 2016-2021

    Then, I inspected and cleaned this:

    Glad I didn’t find anything inside this hole. Just a single pine needle and a small leaf near the wiper arm.
    Really easy to do. There’s one pop rivet in each end. Just make sure to squeeze the six plastic clips before pulling the cowl up. It can be access thru the front lip along the wire loom. I will be installing a metal screen for critter protection one of these days. What I been doing is I always try to remember to activate the recycled air button to keep the vent closed when parked. Also, I forgot to add that the wiper arms removal with 14mm socket.

    He needs politicians who will hold people accountable for crimes. But a TW would be a good start.

    That looks like a nice new design. Easier on/off use?

    ARE topper. Mud guards, factory steps, third bed rail behind cab, tacorail accessory holder, ram mount tablet mount, hood wrap and retro stripes. Bug shield and window shields. Molle seat cover on tear seat.
    I bought a set last fall for my OR. Was looking at some Falkin WP AT3s but I got a better deal at Sam's Club on Goodyear Duratracs during their tire special month. We had a good snow storm here last week and they did great. I think you'll be pleased with them.

    Way back in '21, when we had the December deluge, it was visibly raining on my passenger side. I'm talking big drops, enough to fill my Thermos tumbler in an hour. Once the sky cleared, I started trying to figure out what was wrong. The seal at the bottom of the windshield was beat up, so I pulled the cowl. It'd been pulled before - four of the six clips on the engine side were broken and it looked like the previous owner had tried to stuff old wiper blades in the seal channel. Poor design on Toyota's part - if that seal goes, the water runs right into the cabin air intake. Doing some reading here, someone had suggested putting a cover over it, with space on the sides for air to get in. So I marked where I wanted to attach the cover on the wall

    Cut up a piece of aluminum (the notch corresponds to the bump on the wall and the marks are to round the cover.


    Then after taping the wall to be neat, I ran a bead of silicon along the wall to act as a shelf to attach the aluminum cover to and let it harden.


    Pulled off the tape and put two bumper pads (pieces of Velcro I found in the glove compartment) on the side of the cabin intake toward the engine.


    Then taped up the aluminum cover (again to be neat) and ran another bead of silicon along the wall. The towels are there to hold the cover tight against the wall.


    I let the seal cure overnight and pulled off the tape (see, nice and shiny).


    I then ran a leak test (I sprayed the windshield with the garden hose for 15 minutes)


    And got no cabin rain.


    Some clever person with a 3D printer and some spatial ability should design up a cover for the intake, something that protects from both windshield leakage and the leaves/mice that get in the cabin filter. It'd be the same piece for both the Gen 2s and 3s. Since there are holes on the engine side, Toyota once did have some thought of putting something there.

    Oh look, another mod....

    If you're going to paint the entire grill matte or gloss black (great idea by the way), don't forget to color match the other areas on your truck:

    quick question because I have a white boxer who stress sheds when he gets in my truck and I have black interior so it sticks out like crazy and pisses me off. I also have a 7yr old daughter who has a booster seat back there. Do you think this set up would work with a child back there as well as a dog?

    Oh not the grill, I am going to paint the metal behind the grill thats orange. When you look at the truck head on you can see orange parts behind it, I dont want to see anything behind the grill, It should look like a black void of nothingness in there
