    I thought they would be all the same o_O

    A buddy has a 2015 Barcelona Red Taco, and it is a completely different color, much darker.

    Looks great man!

    Yeah I wrote up a bit on it in this post (https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads...-3rd-gen-today.399305/page-3389#post-16221995)! Basically just grabbed a plug and play wiring harness from a user on here in the marketplace and that does all the hard work. It looks like he may be a bit backlogged but I’d get in now if you’re interested! You gotta disconnect the HU (yank the trim then remove 4 bolts) but that’s pretty much the hardest part. He provides a good length of RCA input cables, 2 small gauge wires to set up your anytime rear cam switch, and one wire/switch you need for overriding the Nav (so you can type in addresses on the go/in D). The link I posted above has the link for his set up and there’s lots of info in that post. I’ve been super impressed with it, tons of features without having to swap out to an aftermarket head unit!

    I’m assuming you’re talking about on the bed extender. The strap attaches to the side of the tailgate where the latch is to help hold it down. It snaps in and is released by lifting up on the tailgate release handle. They are not in the proper position in these photos as it’s not actually installed yet.

    Still working on that part! This was the test phase with the wires just resting on the battery posts. Plan is to wire it into the park lights.

    Why go with OEM Rigid's when you can buy Rigid's kit with D2's for much cheaper and get a lot more light out of them?IMG_0005.jpg

    Hey everybody! This is my first mod for my taco. Hondo garage radio knobs and screen protector from Amazon. It looks a little hazy but it's not too bad. It does protect the touch screen from scratches and greasy fingers. Super easy to clean and wipe down. The knobs themselves are a gift from heaven!

    Got future plans down the road to get clazzio seat covers and bed cover.20171011_072700.jpg

    It's the first time I've ever let a shop touch my truck, being my Afton Canyon camping trip is this weekend I took my truck to Paul at JBM motoring in Orange Ca.

    I loved the Icon air bump on my last truck but this one has 3x the weight and less prerunner but I decided to do the same.

    Icon Suspension Hydraulic rear bumps and progressive 3 leaf AAL and kept the overload in for weight and towing. Pleasantly surprised!!!

    @Frivolous4x4 @Shmellmopwho

    If you are in Orange County I highly recommend Paul at JBM Motoring 714-997-0400

    The rear sits 3/4" higher and no violent bottoming out.

    Here's pix!!! 1st pix is before with just 1" rear block on 5100's then Icon setup no block.

    The media player I purchased from AliExpress, it’s got AV output vs HDMI so it’s perfect for this application and came with a cigarette lighter plug. It’s just the RCA cables and power plug so I only have it plugged in when I need it and it’s all under the passenger side dash area. Can’t really leave it plugged in and hidden because there’s no internal memory, you need to load your files from either a USB drive or SD card.

    Crap. That’s the link from my “My Orders” page so maybe it’s linked to my account. The title of the product page is “JEDX Full HD 1080P Car Media Player with IR Extender AVI DivX MKV DVD MP3 Player HDMI,AV output,SD/MMC/USB Host,Free Car adapter” and the price was $35.95 from seller “JEDXTech Store”.. you can probably search via one of those terms and find them. There are tons of options on Ali. Mine is powered via cigarette lighter 12v plug that came w media player.
