    I had the new Bilstein 5100s, OME 885's (purchased from a TW member) and Hellwig rear "helper springs" installed on Friday. Truck rides so much smoother, but with 80K miles on the OEM shocks, it may be they were pretty worn out anyway.

    Truck site about 1" higher, but I didn't do this for the lift, I did it because my wife and I just bought our first trailer (Coleman Rubicon 16' travel trailer) to tow with the Taco, and my brother-in-law bought me the 5100's as a recent birthday present, so decided to beef up the front and rear suspension a little to help with the towing capability.

    After reading many review from TW, I ordered a LOSTAR skid plate (replica of the trd pro skid). It take me 2hrs to install. The 4 spacer is what take most of the time. Due to bad instructions, they didn’t tell you that the plastic washer is to help hold the bolt & spacer in place before mounting the skid plate.

    I compared with my neighbor’s pro skid plate, it has the same thickness. It felt as strong as the pro skid plate. Plus, Amazon give me 50% off because it was damage during shipping.

    Decided to built a slide out kitchen drawer for the truck this weekend... really happy with how it came out. Added quick disconnect for propane and 12v for Jerry can faucet setup. 11lb propane mounted to a PowerTank mount on the bedrail.

    Great looking pics. But this one is old school, before 103. I was with the Bounty Hunters, VF-2

    One review said the oil change plate was not included. This true?

    I was considering the same skid.

    On a different note, I just installed the same bumper and am debating what to do with the tow hook. :anonymous::anonymous: I took mine off and reinstalled the tie-down loop (stock for non OR models) since there's no way to clear a strap around the hook anymore. I'm curious to see what others are doing there.

    I didn’t read every review. But there is no cover plate for the oil change area. To be honest, it’s not a big deal.

    Fyi, this is what the TRD skid plate looks like.

    I didn’t do anything to the hook because it’s gonna cost me more money for something I already have on my bumper. But it would be interesting to see what others do with it.
    Yup, my neighbor has a 2020 pro trim and that’s the skid plate. The only difference I notice is the color and no TRD lettering. Just by looking, the shape look very similar.
