    Also, there's been some discussion with regards to Fords. I've got to express my appreciation for them. I was in a pretty legit accident with my last car about a month ago now, which is how I came to purchasing the Taco. My '12 Focus Titanium, Grace, was pretty awesome. The thing had zip, was amazing in our recent snow storms in PDX, and took damn good care of me. We were in a head on collision at a combined speed of about 75mph and I walked away with 3 broken ribs. Love my Taco and 'ppreicate the HELL out of my Ford.

    The header rail was no big deal at all.
    I had to go buy a T30(I think) torx socket, but it was really easy.
    I got the rail on Amazon, but sometimes it's a prime only item (retardation). If they do that to you, go to toyotaofdallas parts website.

    I've also been considering building a "tacoma bike buddy" or whatever it's called. That is why I got the rail.

    We started on Four Peaks road off of the beeline. Drove to the top then took the back way down into Tonto Basin. Then drove over to Roosevelt dam and into Miami and back to the valley. Really cool day of exploring. Wanted to take the Apache trail back but was getting late in the day

    Also, I have the OEM all weather mats, but I've been having issues with the passenger mat sliding up every time I've got someone sitting over there. I've been considering the Weathertechs. Do you guys have issues with the passenger side Weathertechs sliding up?

    Quick question, where did that smaller skid come from? I have a 2017 Sport, but don't seem to have that skid.

    Starting small (maybe tiny) with the "up-grades" to my new Tacoma. I couldn't stand the AutoNation Drive Pink license plate frame delivered with the vehicle but didn't really care for the look of a frame-less plate. What to do but "Paint it, Black."

    I support Movember (purchased in November) but the pink just can't stay.

    A lot better but still not there...

    Found some primer and Semi-Flat Black Krylon in the garage. Now we're talking.

    Time to color match the screws with some more paint???

    Yes, black and grey. I wouldn't say the grey matches the doors. I liked the contrast of the black and grey. Otherwise I think it would have been too dark in the cab for my taste

    Had the same problem, I got the husky contour fit mats and I'm very happy with them,no sliding and a little more flexible material than the weathertechs I have in my other Tacoma. looks like you enjoyed the snow .......then the one sunny day we had this weekend, the coast was nice Saturday!!

    I have a lightbar on the way too. any chance you have any pics or the wiring you did for your switch? the only ones I find while searching are ones where people struggle on which ones to tap into and there's multiple answers that people argue about... any help would be much appreciated!!

    Also, love your truck. I almost went with blue, and if I did, I would totally be going for your look :)

    I have the same issue with my OEM all-weather mats. Passenger and rear ones slide. However I think will go with the Husky brand. They seem better than weathertech.

    I got my SDHQ behind the grille dual light mount installed along with 2 Rigid Radiance 30" bars! I have another that I think I will put on my Prinsu rack, just waiting for a warmer day to tackle it.

    Highly recommend the mount, solid piece with a super easy install! I have the backlighting wired to be on anytime the truck is on, hard to see during the day but love the look dusk-dawn.

    Thanks, I appreciate it!

    Full detailed parts list, photos, and instructions for the light bar install here. I wrote an overly detailed write-up to help others after floundering around myself for a few hours.
