    Don't believe wipers are covered under warranty. These are a "wear" item that you are responsible for replacing yourself. There are several aftermarket wipers that are better than OEM anyway.

    When I bought my first 3rd gen half the trucks on the lot had the OEM covers..

    When I bought my 3rd 3rd gen not a single truck had one. I asked the sales lady and she said they were just too expensive and they couldn't profit off them when they're are other covers, better covers, on the market for much cheaper...


    I just picked up a backflip g2 last night for 500. In excellent shape. Really diggin it so far. Just need to see how water tight it is, but I love the look.


    Congrats! Bet it will look great!

    I'm running 265 75 16 wildpeaks currently... and they are still in excellent shape... but once I wear them down I'm thinking either 285/75/16 OR 255/85/16... just not many options in the 255/85

    Just put the 3/1 kit on yesterday and need to do some research... really don't want to have to use those wheel spacers... and don't want to change rims... I'm not sure if either, or which, will work without spacers and not rub at all...

    Since I’ve been rehabbing some back/hip injuries, my buddy who owns the local 4x4 shop I frequent helped me out by installing my aluminum Pelfreybilt skid plates and my Front Runner Cab Rack. While it was there he got me a proper alignment too. The truck has never driven better.

    Is that alignment after a lift? Is that still good enough to not cause problems?

    I had my lift installed yesterday and had the alignment done... I was concerned about the one out of spec on mine but the guy said after a lift this actually wasn't bad at all... still not sure if that is true or that's just as good as they felt like getting it..

    Yep my truck is lifted on kings with SPC arms (2.5in of lift up front) Dakar springs in the rear. From what I’ve gathered through reading on here, 3* caster or more is best for driveability. I also have 285’s so this gives me even more clearance even after a good bit of trimming and a CMC.

    I specifically asked for 3* caster or more, 0* camber or as close to it as possible and a little positive toe. He got my alignment pretty dang near perfect.

    I think your caster is very low personally, but I’m not sure what your lift/tire setup is. Toe and camber look acceptable though.

    You need something to read the sensors and then write them to the ECU. I use this but most people don't want to fork out the money for it.

    I'm happy to help out anyone who needs this service but I think you maybe a bit to far away to justify you making the trip. ;)

    There are other and better options for a tonneau besides the factory unit - unless you you are dead-set on getting a factory cover only.
    BAK industries and Extang make nice tri-fold hard covers for less then $1k. I have a BAKflip on my 2004 Dakota Quadcab and really like it.
    I using a BAK Industries Revolver X2 on my Tacoma - like that one too.

    Good luck in your search.

    I had ordered ones for the TRD on accident. (i have an SR5) and took about 7 hours of wiring with trial and error. But..finally works! Your black on black looks sweet though. Did you do something to your fogs? Is that a cover?
