    Hi all. Where could I buy one of the removable rear headrest for our tacos? My nephews decided to play with them, and I lost the rear passenger and middle headrests (no recovery possible). Kids!! Sometimes you love them too much to murder them. Any suggestions where I could buy/get atleast the rear passenger side one a cheaper way?

    I checked Toyota prices and they are wayy too expensive to buy from dealership. $579.82 for one. For both $1132.95 :confused:

    lots of wires in it, and almost on bumps. I plan to change suspension when I get back since not everything was going to be in in time.

    I have a middle one laying around in my garage, DM me and I'm sure we can figure out something for that one at least. Never used it and never will. Those prices are crazy.

    Any idea on what you plan on doing? or are you waiting to dive down that rabbit hole?

    For my roof lights, a front light bar and side flood lights, I split my wires. Running 1 set on each side of the windshield.
    I've seen people with wires that are too thick that silicone them to the gap in the windshield trim.
    Or you could use these, I used them on my roof rack itself to keep the wires tucked away.

    I only mention it because you will eventually get paint damage from the loom rubbing.

    i usually just have the tire shop mount the best looking tire they're replacing as the spare and hope for the best.
    i've only bought 5 tires once that way.

    I tried it out for one night and then swapped to my Exped, ha. It was not good. I still can't believe the cost of these tents and the mattress's are always the worst part.

    I am guessing that is a junk yard? I live in SD too, but I have not been to them. Do you suggest and I go search for one at one of those?

    The alto has become my new favorite tent. I tried a Tepui first, then a 23Zero. Loved their black out fabric. Then a Desert Armor for my first hard shell. That was a game changer over the soft shell. A lot quicker to setup and take down. Then the Alto. It checks all the boxes for me. Black out fabric again, a hardshell with plent of room to store gear in and its slightly bigger that the usual queen sized rtt.

    What is CVT coming out with next?

    Similar to the alto.. but not sure about all the details yet it's supposed to come out in May or June.. I'm thinking about waiting to see what it looks like then make a decision on the alto or the cvt 1

    There's one in my town and it's like a cleaner junkyard, they put the initial bids on the cars that go to dealer auctions. The high demand/high dollar stuff they cut out themselves and sell. Unless the seats are pristine leather with nut coolers they typically don't pull those out so you shouldn't have trouble finding headrests. Based on prices of stuff I've picked in the past, I'd say the guys would probably charge around $40 each.

    If you never been to one I suggest going regardless.
