    Alright doll-face, c'mon and bore me!
    Looks like Collinite makes a bunch of different waxes. Which one have you been using?

    Amazon says this one doesn't fit my 2017 Tacoma. Oh well. :p

    Just my opinion --which may not mean a thing to you -- the Tuffskinz carbon fiber color tailgate letters would look good on your tail. I have them on my BBP and they really look good. JMHO -- The quality is great -- they were not the cheapest, but the quality makes up for the difference.

    I use #476S Super Double Coat wax and am very satisfied with the results. I used to use McGuires Mirror Glaze. While I think it is also a great product I think the Collinite is a superior product and holds up to repeated high pressure washes much better. Not at all unusual for me to do 3-4 laser washes a month. All I can say is try it and judge for yourself. For me it met and exceeded my expectations. When I find something that works I usually stick with it.
    Hope this helps.

    A glaze is a temporary coating that is used to make the paint really shine. A regular car wash will knock it down. It's good to use before a car show, but definitely not the match for a sealer or carnuba wax for durability.

    Question for all, (because I know you can answer it fast) Can the standard (non-adjustable) Bilstein 5100 Series Shocks be put on a stock Tacoma?

    Some are better than others. I have 2 close by and the one that I use has significantly higher water pressure and a Simonize Carnauba Hot Wax option.
    A little pricey at $15 for the top of the line wash but we'll worth it to me. My truck always looks great. It also does the undercarriage on entry. If it was me I'd try both of the different washes and decide which does a better job. The difference can be like night and day. If you find a good one you're going to love it. Best part is that nothing ever touches your trucks finish and the undercarriage wash is awesome especially if you live where the roads get salted.

    Today got the Bilstein 6112's front and 5160's rear on my 17' DCSB OR, from Headstrong. So far just street driving, but all the "wiggleness" of the stock truck is gone, feels more stable. I'll try it off road this weekend. No lift, General Grabber AT tires.

    Can you elaborate on "wiggleness"?

    So you went with zero lift? Just curious. I am getting ready to pull the trigger on this kit but I want to increase the height.

    No I didn't want any lift, there's options on Headstrong's site to pick the lift you want if you go with the same kit.
