    My understanding is it depends on your sensor placement. For grilles with the lower placed sensors, i.e. the Pro Grille, there is a chance of interference.
    I have the stock 2019 OR grille with has the sensor in the middle behind the emblem.
    Victory states on their site "Compatibility with Toyota Safety Sense (2018+ models) not guaranteed."

    Once I have mine installed I'll provide more feedback.

    I've had the truck for a week now, so I had to celebrate. Yesterday, installed OEM roofracks, bed mat, EGR black textured rain visors, and cheap Amazon seat covers that surprisingly fit great.

    Just installed the RCI Metalworks Roof Rack. Great design and feels extremely solid. 20231118_121024.jpg 20231118_121029.jpg 20231118_121005.jpg 20231118_121039.jpg 20231118_121016.jpg

    Just the smallest amount to free the underside of the bumper. It’s such an insignificant & out of sight cut that you can actually put your stock bumper back on no issues if you ever want to change it.

    Definitely a well thought out design.

    Thanks! I was somehow fortunate enough to find this unused on Marketplace. The guy I bought from did have to wait about that amount of time though. This one is steel which I wasn’t keen on at first, but ended up being just fine once installed.

    I thought so too. For $200, I definitely can't complain. I wanted clazzios, but just couldn't justify the cost difference. These have some wrinkles where they were folded in the packaging that I'm hoping will come out. It's just been so cold

    What brand bumper is that? I like the idea of minimal cutting...

    I hope you get better results than I did. I’ve sealed up everything and water still gets in. I carry things that can’t get wet in waterproof tubs.

    Noticed my transfer case leaking at the rear output shaft at just 29k miles. I had to replace the extension housing shaft seal.

    Compared to earlier Tacomas, both the output shaft and companion flange are larger on the turd gen's VF2CM transfer case. That leaves a smaller gap around the output shaft for the seal puller. I also had to hunt for a seal driver. The standard-size steel and PVC pipes mentioned in YouTube videos for earlier trucks are too small for this application.



    The seal driver is a 1-1/2" NPTF "Poly Cam-Lock Coupler", made from a tough fiberglass-reinforced plastic similar to the oil filter cap. The unthreaded end happens to fit the seal. The coupler's billet cam arms are easily driven out with a punch.



    Transfer Extension Housing Seal P/N 90311-45034
    Transfer Output Rear Shaft O-Ring P/N 90301-31003
    Transfer Output Rear Companion Flange Nut P/N 90179-24011
    Seal driver Powerfist P/N 8154304
