    Had a friend in college that grew up in Africa. After the end of the school year, he flew into Lagos, got off the plane, found out it was 100 degrees and 100% humidity, and said "I can do this." He then realized it was 6:30 am and it was going to get worse. He thought about getting back on the plane.

    I grew up in 10 to 20% humidity, so when I did my tour in Houston (usually above 50%), I was permanently sweaty. I was used to having it evaporate rather than just sitting there waiting to be wiped off.

    I chrome deleted everything, except for the 4x4 switch .how was the process for doing it? I watched a few YouTube videos and it looked to in depth for me to try and dissamble the entire switch to change out the chrome.

    I had the same reservations before I did it, but it's not hard--fairly easy. Everything is designed to have a place inside the switch.

    This video from MESO is perfect for following along also. https://youtu.be/uQI0x6kVODo

    Pretty easy. Just be sure not to lose the spring and detent that might pop out. I'd recommend doing it in a clean, confined space, so that if you drop it, it's easy to find.

    Contra. I loved that game. Getting older is better than the alternative.

    It is not easy to create such a great demonstration video with very simple to follow instructions. I might try it as well!
    For the chrome delete on the AC rings, is that by sticker, or actual metal?
    Finally, your chrome delete on the steering wheel emblem - also sourced from the same place?
    Well done.

    @stftaco Right!

    The chrome delete AC rings are a MESO Customs product, the actual metal (polymer/plastic replacement). I didn't trust the stickers, plus I live in the desert, so it wouldn't last long. He's out of the black ones on his website but has nearly every other color. You can pick up a set from any of his authorized vendors, I chose Caliraised: https://caliraisedoffroad.com/colle...a-tacoma-vent-ring-kit?variant=43777742340342

    I got the chrome delete steering wheel from Amazon. Heres the link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0B68QV561

    I guess MESO and AJT designs had to stop making them for legal reasons. Some guys pop off the chrome and throw a fresh one, I chose the overlay because it's faster & cheaper. It's on there snug, I don't think it's coming off without prying.

    It is easy as can be. I was a little leery too but I had no issues. Bring the dash in your house. Sit at a table. Watch the video, pause at each step, and when you are ready, start the video and watch the next step and repeat.

    That game was such a blast. Do you remember when the level came at you instead of across the screen. That was all the hype in the neighborhood back in the day.

    Yeah. And you had to lay prone in that room to shoot the targets to deactivate the electric fence. It had commandos, weapons, & aliens. It was a total Alien movie rip-off, but it was great. :headbang:

    Ok. Sorry. Back to Tacomas. o_O

    Now that it is washed….This weekend I installed the black pro tail lights, bed lights, LED’s in the interior, back up and license plate. Great update and taking out the chrome bit by bit.
