    This topic has drawn lots of attention...

    I avoid overstepping boundaries in my replies...learned what happens to others by reading just a handful of threads.

    I've also been on Forums since 2011 which has taught me a lot about online dialogue.

    It takes time but learning to ignore/bypass replies that don't add substance is a continual cycle if one plans to stick around.

    TRD emblems, tinted windows, OEM running boards, AVS vent shades, RMAS upgrade, LED lights in front and rear, interior LED lighting upgrade, LED lighting in bed, touch control dash mount for LED lighting, auxillary 12v and USB jacks in bed, replace all speakers with Infinity, custom mod with Bose tweeters, TRD Pro illumination mod...
    NOT seal leather, faux suede.
    Sometimes it gets too nasty outside to work on our Tacos so one winter I decided to add USB jacks to my 2x powered reclining sofas.
    Last winter I modded my furnace to pull heat from a heat exchanger connected to my electric hot water heater. There is always something to mod around the house.

    Now that the weather is nice, I'm going to replace my dented tailgate and swap out the grill for the 2nd time on the Taco. Stay tuned for pics.

    Thanks. My vertically challenged Filipino wife appreciates it's assist. When she's not in tow, I turn em off via the toggle switch.
    I think it makes the ride look cleaner than having the mounted step variants.

    Your color is the best for you. Like your kids are the cutest. Same w one’s dog.

    We used to have 2 red cars. Then two dark grey. Now two green. Well, LR is hardly green. My wife’s Camry is the spruce color.

    I put white lights on, so maybe Dino teeth and not raptors? I had to distinguish it from the 42% of all trucks. Now I just have differentiate from 50% of Tacomas.
    I had a 4Runner for 14 years and my only mod was a bug deflector. I’m having fun doing stuff to make Tacoma my own. Other than sliders and skid, it’s cosmetic. I really like my pro style tails w LR. Most chrome inside and out gone including derping the bumper. These trucks just want to be personalized.

    Purchased Toyota Certified, with Vijay bumpers, additional lights, and Falken Wildpeaks on Fuel rims. Prev owner apparently painted the grill.
    Several.
    • My location is not particularly windy.
    • High wind is not usually associated with clear days and high heat (in my area).
    • The bottom is held in place by the wipers.
    • There are 3 suction cups holding the top in place, one in the middle on the roof and one on each front door window.
    • Some wind getting under the cloth allows heat to escape.
    • It hasn't blown away yet.

    Those paint dots are what they use to balance the wheels, just keep them on.

    The dots are a rough approximation from the factory as to the balance of the tire at the factory. The yellow dot is to be mounted next to the valve stem. It looks like yours aren't. Not a biggee. As long as they are balanced well no harm no foul. There really isn't a problem to remove them as they aren't really used for any real purpose except for original install and it's not critical for that.

    The others are correct, the paint dots are used for mounting the valve stem. Not sure about multiple paint dots, mine luckily only had the one yellow dot to line up with.

    • Red dot: Indicates the tire's high point
    • Yellow dot: Indicates the tire's lightest point, or where the wheel weighs the least
