    Super easy. Hardest part was the e-brake boot got twisted since I didn't fully remove it from the handle and I had to work it around to get the console reinstalled.

    Finished the Clazzio and Seat Heater install today. About 15 hours over two days to get this done. My install was made more complicated by the fact that I ran the power to a distribution unit under the rear seat. As mentioned in a previous post, I spent about five hours lengthening the harness, testing, re-testing, and checking the connections, etc. I also had to move a keystone mount I had from the switch panel to the passenger side of the center console which required a lot of filing, dremeling, test fitting, etc.

    Overall, not something I want to do again. But, I know my future self will appreciate the protection afforded by the covers and the warmth provided by the heating elements. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a bottle of Advil to devour.

    Some tips:
    • Get a muscular friend who doesn't mind hard work
    • Set everything in the sun for a few hours in order to loosen up the material
    • Do the headrests first
    • Once the seat covers are on, unbolt the seats and tilt them back to get the covers secured (seat bolts are torqued to 27 ft-lb.)
    • Give the covers a few weeks to rest and then re-tighten the strings and cords

    I do have a bit of a confession, I actually installed them last weekend lol. This picture was from today though. It settled pretty nicely. I got the set for a pretty good deal and I was honestly about to pull the trigger on a set of Bilstein 5100s but the price on the Foxs were too good to pass up. I’m pretty new to the off-roading scene but I can definitely tell the difference between these and the stock Bilsteins. A bit firmer and rides pretty nice. Soaks up potholes like a dream, pretty excited to take them out off-roading soon.

    few things here and there.
    Met with @cheddars and swapped our bumpers! Was awesome meeting a cool fellow Tacoma lover!

    He is going to put that steel bumper to good use, and I’m glad to be stock :D Replacement fenders ordered already. For now.. I’ll be rocking the “high-water” equivalent.

    We setup a mini shop in the Lowes parking lot, that was also cool. Lmao

    Oh man. I admire the spreadsheet, but Jesus I don’t want to know how much I’ve spent but the rough ballpark is scary. I think the random bits (bulbs, screws, L tracks, tools etc) is brutal enough. But there has been a lot of big purchases. After a certain point everything just cost 1k or more and I just went with it. I’m not rich, just irresponsible.

    Yeah it was a rabbit hole that I did not want the answer to. I started thinking the other day, if I had to uninstall all of my shit, could I? So today I started generating a list. And because it's excel, might as well supplement the list with numbers.

    The answer is no. I threw a lot of that money away.

    I hope I get my entertainments worth out if it at least.

    There are some things I could uninstall and some things I couldn’t. And most everything I wouldn’t, as in I don’t want to. However the camper shell/cap is currently sitting on some blocks off to the side. That thing I have a love and hate relationship with.

    And last thing I’ll say if you look at the video looks like he’s got his phone up to his mouth holding it in one hand and then transfers it to his other hand after impact. Compressed on YouTube but I see it in my photos pretty distinctively. He wasn’t mad or anything it’s almost as if he knew it was his bad. Just reflecting on everything. It is what it is though

    he could have missed you, lots of room, he never hit his brakes, he was moving too fast, scary if someone would have been walking to their car

    Damn. This sucks a ton. Makes me sad to think about anything happening to my Taco. I think the thought is amplified with @Rock Lobster reminding me about the money I put into this truck.

    Hoping things will be able to be fixed. Definitely super bummed. I like you and many others here love my truck. Just hoping I still do after repairs etc. probably will take a long time to even Get parts. Need a new bumper. Tailgate. Rear passenger body panel. New tail light and probably a new bed since part of the composite cracked. Don’t think there’s any damage to the frame thankfully but will keep you posted when I get everything assessed

    I think I'm about $6k in mods at the moment. Last night I priced out some Fox Elite 2.5's with Deaver N98's and UCA's on Accutune's website. With 5 wheels and tires it was about $10k. Then I started looking at bumpers and brake upgrades. :cookiemonster: It definitely adds up quick.

    Yes I did that as well. Had to put a spacer on the back one and cut the threads down a lot. Two different lengths.
