    Just pulled from Google for a better explanation:
    RAPTOR is a durable protective coating and bed liner that is designed to tolerate the toughest climatic conditions and can be applied to a wide range of. substrates from steel, wood, concrete and plaster to plastics and composites, resistant to common fuels, U.V., scratches and stains.

    Here's the results of the magnuson on the '16 TRD OR. Black lines are stock (with MBRP catback) and red is after the addition of the magnuson.


    For those wondering about fuel consumption:

    No blower, 87 octane, around town with a mildly heavy foot: 15mpg

    With blower, 91 octane (required), around town with a mildly heavy foot but slightly more conservative: 15mpg.

    Dumb question your truck looks so NICE! Are you going to take it off road and 4x4 it and get mud, dirt and scratches on it? I spent 1 1/2 years fixing my 48 Power Wagon you could eat off any part of it. I drove it 10 miles and sold it knowing I could never get it that clean again. I try not to get my Challenger dirty I dust it off at the end of our dirt road going to town each time. Same when I get home then put a cover on it. I don't treat my Wife's (their I said it) Toyota the same way. I do wash it off when it gets dirty but don't hand dry it each time. I get snow on hers but not mine! I just see so many super clean Toyota's on here!! My other trucks could go a whole winter with out a bath?

    lol, nah, I can't feel comfortable spending somebody else's money, even if she'll be making more money than I do from next year forward.

    I had scratches on my TRD Off Road before the odometer hit 800 miles lol.

    The first few scratches are the hardest, but come on... it's a truck.

    Aluminum is fairly easy to work with if you ever wanted to try something out. I did this for my UpTop with a router.

    Sorry, it’s a crap picture, and upside down. I’ll try to get better pics sometime, but it is 3/16” thick angle aluminum with cut outs for SSC2s and my custom made 3rd brake light (on he 5x6” VLED strips). But if you are half way good with a router, a drill, and a saw, it isn’t that bad.

    My Softopper arrived two days ago. Today the weather was nice enough to put it on. It’s definitely a nice addition to the truck. I still need to adjust it a little to get the wrinkles out of the sides but I’m already lovin’ how it looks. Only change I might make to it is remove those bright white logos. :rolleyes:

    Not today, but I also had all the windows tinted with a ceramic film. Summertime sun is going to be so much more bearable this year.

    Nice choice. Sounds like you have your mounting well planned for it.
    Now that I got the Softopper on the truck, I’ll start getting the third brake light wired up and a pic or two of it as well.

    This good enough for you? Ive had it for 4 months… i washed it after that mud photo around 10 days ago and its super dusty from wind here in socal. It looks cleanish on the photo though.

    Lots of different ways to do it that work. It's really up to the individual elements that make up the couple that decide which strategy will work best. Both of us have watched money rip relationships apart though, both in personal and in military (especially military) life. We didn't want that stress. We also discuss things like adults, openly and frequently, about financial planning and how both of us are doing. Neither of us are left in the dark about the other's money. We also bought and paid off a house in MA in 3 years (almost to the day), so obviously it also helps that our ends don't just meet, they've got enough slack to be tied up in a bow. That definitely helps. Best relationship I've ever had. Possibly the best I've ever witnessed.
