    K&N 57-9039 JR Intake Kit (tube and filter) and the TRD Intake Flow Accelerator installed Saturday morning. IMO this is visually nicer and much cheaper than the full TRD kit, but should provide all of the gains (if not more due to a better tube design). I also removed the carbon filter from the airbox lid. I wasn't expecting huge gains, but I am very impressed with how the truck feels. The throttle response is much snappier, it seems like it downshifts easier/smoother/faster and from a stop it accelerates easier. Best way I can describe it is that the truck feel like it's lighter. I've seen quite a few reviews that say this increases mpg by 1-2, but we'll see if that's actually the case as time goes on. I'm not sure if it added any power as I don't drive it that hard most of the time, but the smoothness gains make it worthwhile. The intake is audibly unnoticeable until around 4000 RPM and then it's like a switch is flipped and the suction noise gets pretty loud, which is about as perfect as you can ask for IMO. I'm happy there's no droning without the giant resonator on the intake tube - no idea why that needs to be there on the stock tube either - it's just a huge heat soak lol.

    Installed - I love how clean this kit is:

    I got the vinyl grey set. Noticed that the bump/wing on the driver's seat was wearing from getting in and out (I guess from my big butt rubbing on it,lol)! So I hope that these will hold up well.

    Quite a bit of improvement, it should do better than the stock on wet black pavement and off-road at night. Pretty cheap mod, try it.

    The projector reflectors are set for the right focus for a halogen bulb filament, so it looks normal if you stay with them.
    I didn’t even have to readjust my headlights after the swap.

    LED’s have the wrong shape for the reflectors and throw a weird pattern, so that’s why you need to update the whole light assembly with them if you want more normal and focused LED lighting.

    Just added toolbox and roof-rack to haul my fishing boat 100's of miles into the backwoods every week. Goodrich K02s, Bilstein 5100 front and back, no lift.
    A good idea. Might pick those up. That is an area that takes a beating on rocks.

    The curtain airbags are actually located behind the headliner and run the length of the cab from the A-pillar to the C-pillar just above the top of the door sill. When the curtain bags deploy they push the headliner down and usually deform it along that edge. The grab handles are attached in such a way that they break free of the cab mounts thus assisting the headliner deformation but stay attached to the headliner itself to avoid becoming a projectile. I’m sure the airbag would deform the Molle panel upon deployment instead of sending it into an occupants head. I just wouldn’t want to be the one to test that theory lol.

    Got my 3d printed left switch panel from etsy from Fitzaprint. Since I was a repeat customer he gave me a little cool 3d printed Taco too.
