    The OE pro grills are actually made in the US. My point is the plastic is the same, like our cheap ass plastic is any better than China? I bought the Chinese grill $130 like most others.

    Lots of different types of plastics out there, styrene, abs, delrin as well as others and they are not all the same durability wise. I guess I would want to know if those made in the USA are made of the same type of plastic as those made in China before saying they are the same. They probably are and both are probably made of styrene, a cheaper more brittle type of plastic. Something I would have to find out more about before saying they were of the same quality. You're probably right but I just don't know if they are for sure. Just some food for thought.

    What I did to my Taco....put sand in between the treads. The Boss wanted to go eat dinner by the beach last night. I just do as I’m told when it comes to the Boss...she’s a good Boss though. ; )

    I did do the OVtune.....first the 87 octane tune, which is an improvement over stock, and then re-flashed to the 91 tune. Definetly makes it faster.....supposeably 20-22HP gain, I believe it. I will go back to the 87 tune just because I don’t want to pay the 30 cents per gallon delta and the 87 tune is a improvement over stock. Because it is easy to re-flash, takes about 20 minutes total.....if I ever get the need for speed, etc., I’ll just flash the ECU to the 91 tune and fill up on 91 octane.

    Next up, bought 80mil sound deadening mat.
    More mods, fun.

    What running boards are those? They look awesome.

    I went with the N-Fab steps. I liked them at first but now I think they look like garbage.

    Let us know what you think, I've been eyeballing one of these. KN?

    Also, put that shroud back on! You can't expose yourself in front of all these children!

    Thanks man! They are the oem 2nd gen running boards. They say they don’t fit the 3rd gen, but they bolt right up. Half the price of the aluminum ones for the 3rd gen also. Plus I think they look better.

    On Amazon.
    There are different styles like all aluminum. I bought originally 11 mos. ago for a trip out west, Moab etc. last June. Wanted something we could eat on anywhere and not depend on park tables etc.
    Also a great umbrella, light, super durable, help up on many really windy Gulf Coast days, and big that I have used with this table and on many, many beach volleyball tournaments over the last 4 years, beats 3 other umbrellas I had like from Academy:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003DJ4FEM/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    The table, temp wise, wood is cooler to sit on. Plus it’s doesnt dent etc.
    I was figuring when I purchased it I would put another coat of urethane on it since typically stuff like this has a thin coat that doesn’t last. But....after getting it and checking it out....it has more than enough. Even still looks brand new. I’m 6’3” and 220 lbs., it’s plenty sturdy.
    I will say that I do go easy on it, don’t abuse it it kinda handling thing. Even if it did bust I would get another one. It’s ridiculously portable and a huge space saver.

    I have the same, going on 2 1/2 years. Bought off Amazon. It did say that these would not fit, but they bolt right up in the 2016/2017 holes.

    Not much, but added a tailgate graphic I ordered from @CBoy808 and also the reflective "Tacoma" inserts from @rrentrop

    I have some additional custom bedside replacement decals from Cboy808 that I hope to get done in the next couple weeks.
