    It definitely has wrinkles....mostly between the cab and the front of the shell (out of sight unless you’re looking) at those very complex corners. Fortunately, or perhaps unfortunately, I don’t have OCD and I’m still in this top about $1700 less than a new one. The original ARE paint is preserved if I decide to sell it.

    It was technically my second attempt with vinyl...first was on Saturday, I wrapped the hood matte white. Both are “good from far.....no, farther” jobs.

    I was checking the lines last night when you sent that reply. I will go back and check the area you highlighted but... the one inch block that facilitated any of that portion of brake line being stretched was get installed at the dealer before I ever saw the truck for the first time. Get this, the first oil change I took it in for I told them of the shifting problem and the TSB and their reply to me was "well that is because of the lift kit and bigger tires you installed" I laughed at the guy and said um... you may want to check your records a little bit closer because you guys installed the lift kit and tire package.

    Lord help me... I am finding it impossible to find anyone at a dealership that doesn't want to do anything but fix crap with their mouth.

    So far I am a big fan, they grip the road nicely, and I think are actually as quiet if not slightly more quiet or consistent for road noise, as the stock toyo's.

    I'm pretty sure that's a Frontrunner rack.

    Had a lovely Sunday for wrenching, so I put on my Mobtown sliders, ripped the nose off to paint the electric shaver, put on some Total Chaos bed stiffeners, and scooped up a Yakima cargo pod with my REI dividend.

    Everything went pretty smoothly, although I could kill @Mobtown Offroad for that one bolt by the gas tank. My hands are too big, I seriously considered dropping the tank to get it in there.

    Unfortunately it hasn’t arrived yet. Some component got caught up in customs getting to them, so it is delayed getting to me. It hopefully shipped out last week so I might be getting it this week? I just hope it’s early because I’m going on a cruise next week and won’t be able to get to it. :goingcrazy: But I will definitely update after a few hours of having it.

    I was actually questioning installing it on my hood as I really like the hood without a decal but now that I have it on there, it really looks nice. Has a great touch. Get it! :thumbsup:

    I have the tune, just updated to the latest version (1.04). I could never drive the stock tune again. . .this is what Toyota should have done from the start.

    It is a bitch but I have some big ass hands too and can do it. Just takes patience, finesse, curse words and a couple beers.

    I ended up using a helicoil soldered to some wire and fishing it through. IMO another one of your long-handle plates would go a long way. Or just a third bolt welded to the square washer so you don't have to try to keep them together while you're blindly groping around in there.

    Aside from that and some plastic wire brackets that weren't mentioned in the instructions, everything went pretty well. Passenger side is so easy compared to driver's.

    I think that makes a lot of sense. And yes, the two sides are vastly different. The driver side takes me an hour and the passenger takes me 20 minutes haha.
