    Added remote tailgate lock to ours last week. All fairly straight forward except for the two dang clips that hold the review camera and lock looms in the tailgate and bed. A real PIA for me... and one is in the trash. Zip tied everything in place and it seems fine, but I'm a little OCD about those things and it bugs me that it's not quite right. No idea where I'd find replacement clips like that so life goes on.

    Pulling out the tiny key from the fob every time I wanted to get into the bed was just silly. Happy camper now. :thumbsup:

    You keep the documents on your person. That's why the OP fabbed the mod because he was forgetting to keep the docs with him. Peace and Love.
    edit: When I go hiking or someplace I don't need my whole wallet I use this:
    001.jpg
    A small cordura wallet that holds 3 or four documents and a key that I can slip into a pocket.

    I have the stock clips from my install. You could always drill a hole for the lock cable. Let me know and I’ll ship it out to you.

    I just put them on so haven’t experienced anything yet. I’ve put these on my Jeeps for years with no issues. I guess these are IFS and haven’t thought about it causing an alignment issues. From what I understand some people say they can put extra strain on your bearings and whatnot but haven’t heard anything about causing alignment issues.

    It drove straight when I drove around afterwards to make sure things drove well. So far so good!

    Here is the link to the guy that sells the flush mount bracket. It was a little difficult for me to install cuz I have sausage fingers, and I'm blindly looking to thread a nut to a bolt I can't see :). But it wasn't too bad. Read the thread on the link and some of those guys have installed them pretty quick.

    Not all in one day but last couple few days. Got my sub installed, put in a wireless adapter for the CarPlay and some accent stripes for the headlights. Just a little personalization.

    He man whats up. I got it off of Ebay. Copy and paste this in the search box: Toyota Tacoma TRD Matte Black Mesh Grille Insert Grille Overlay Trim

    At first I thought maybe its just an overlay that sticks with 3M tape, but it does have full on clips and is a direct replacement.

    it came out pretty good. Had a local shop do the entire install. It sounds good actually to be a 8”. It is not gonna win any SPL competitions or shake the car next to you at the light but adds that nice neat punch. It shakes all the mirrors inside if provoked.

    Good to know. Seems like if you're not pushing them that far out it shouldn't cause too much stress on the rest of the suspension.

    Thanks for that!

    Got the rear diff back on schedule. Question, even though its only been 10k since the last diff change, it still smelled like fucking death. Is that just me? Is that normal??? Does the diff fluid smell cooked every change?

    How did it go? I had to grind mine down a bit on both sides to get them to fit properly.

    Did you inspect the diff fluid before going to the dealer?

    :confused::confused::confused:

    This truck hasn't seen the dealer since it's 25k.

    Also, it's Sunday and ol' Rock Lobster is four very Hard drinks deep so far. Subtlety is for weekdays.

    sounds like a central Florida meet up. Mine is stock and REALLY thinking about a tune. Can run tunes on just regular fuel right or does it automatically bump you up to super?

    Thanks for the generous offer! I actually still have the originals as well. Might give that a try. Thanks again!
