    ECGS Bushing. I wish I had read all of the write-ups here before installing the lift. I would have done it all at once. As it happened, I installed the lift, noticed the vibration on the test drive and figured it was an alignment issue. Had it aligned and the vibration persisted. Then, I started searching the forum.:facepalm:

    That's about how it went down for me. I knew about it but since I had a new truck I didnt think it would be much of an issue...

    Sounds like a page out of my book. Hind sight. I believe I can do the lift myself, just not sure about tackling the ECGS. Would like to do it all at once but not sure it will play out that way. Maybe I can get a hand locally to help. Something else to look into.

    This are back-lit versions right? Do the knobs fit that far off the infotainment screen surface or do you have them artificially pulled out some?

    Yes they are backlit. That one sticks out like that because it’s the power button so it has room to press for power on/off.

    Deleted chrome bumpers today with Bumpershellz. Looks so much better on my MGM. Blackout is complete until I do headlights and tailights.

    The bumper caps really change the look in my opinion. I would also look into getting different taillights without the chrome inside. Really completed the appearance.

    I have to disagree with you. I have the inserts and I think it’s a nice subtle touch. Still looks way better.

    I tackled the lift by myself in my driveway. It was tough. It was just me. Looking back, I would have finished waaaaay sooner if I had gotten some help. If I change my suspension down the road, I'll definitely have help. The bushing was no where near as bad, in my opinion. It was a little nerve-racking making sure pieces of the bearing didn't fall back into the case, but the videos out there on removal and installation are really good. I bought the removal tool, not the installation tool. I felt the removal tool was worth it. The space is limited. Installing the bushing was a lot like installing a pinion seal on a rear end. It was as expected: a pain but nothing I hadn't done before. Whatever you decide to do, good luck!:thumbsup:

    Oh cool. Would you mind posting a pic, and where you got your letters? I'm not opposed, but I haven't seen them on MGM. If I do it, I'll have to splurge and get the chrome delete for the raised letter emblems.

    So, yesterday I installed the anytime front camera and the decal on the sensor cover thing. Well, I did some of the install but my S/O soldered the wires. I guess I ordered the one you have to solder wires to but luckily someone in my household was handy and had the tools already lol.

    I mounted it on a bracket I got from @mdh_us and it made the mounting part super easy. I really liked the holes were pre drilled for the grill mount annd the hole I had to drill myself for camera placement/preference.

    Since I had to remove the grill anyway, I finally decided it was a good time to place the decal on the Toyota logo that I got from c_mento_taco_808 about a year ago. I accidentally broke one of tabs on it but superglued it back.

    Overall, it was kind of a struggle the front camera kit but got it done. And here’s a picture to show.

    I think next, I’ll get around to installing the shift knob I got from @oostroma in the near future. I just procrastinate A LOT.

    I really like those wheels. They are on my short list of wheels I'm considering when I have to get new tires.
