    Jason,
    Thanks for the heads-up on the possible TSB. I did some searching and could find nothing about a TSB 000179. The site toyotaproblems.com doesn't show any TSBs for the 2016 Tacoma. I will call around to a couple of different dealerships tomorrow to see what I can find out.
    On a separate note. I wasn't happy how the fuel cap tether had seemed to shorten, making it impossible to hang the cap from the door latch like on my '15. Two, separate Toyota parts departments assured me the '15 & '16 Tacos used the same part, meaning their tethers were the same length. My fuel door had two small holes. One was taken up by the tether and the other was a little closer to the latch so I moved the tether to the hole closer to the latch. Now the fuel cap will hang from the fuel door latch like it did in my '15. It's the little things…

    i bought them for $35 bucks off a guy in the dallas area. they came with brackets. I found a spot under the bumper and used an existing bolt. Ill do a good write up this weekend after my mountian bike race. Running the wire to the front was the worse part.

    unfortunately banks need to see at least a year of payments before it impacts your credit.

    The cost for the Toytec Ultimate Lift Kit (ULTAC 2005), Total Chaos upper control arms including installation was about $2800. Costs for the parts had I bought online was about $1800 to 2000, so the rest was labor. Since I don't have the time, space or tools to do the install myself. I paid them to do it with the knowledge that any issues would be backed by Toyota and not void anything on my warranty.

    Now will anyone answer my three previous questions about mudflaps, the smartkey RFID chip and recalibrating your rig's computer to adjust for the larger tires?

    There's a few of us on here that live in southern alberta, we can possibly do a small beginners run out at waiparous so you can try out your locker :)

    There's tons of Tacoma owners that head out to waiparous every weekend, ran into a bunch in January.

    I kept the stock springs. My objective was to improve the ride while retaining stock height/rake.

    I was told it has to be just under a 2" lift to not touch the warranty ?
