    Yes, i am some how familiar with dealing with electrical/electronics but by far not an expert.. and also a bit handy :).... The process seems pretty straight forward, and with caution i should be able to tackle it.. Thanks for the tips, they sure help a lot.. Cheers :cheers:

    Got my Headstrong stage 2 Fox suspension put in, swapped out wheels and tires, and made my Rake-a-saurus-Rex MGM happen. More mods to come.

    I've got about 1.7 inches of rake now. Holy smokes. Think those Medium Duty Dakars did me dirty. Btw driveway is not even, as it slopes downward toward my camera.

    I don't even do that much off-roading. I have more of a pavement princess than you, but I want to have the confidence that if I do need to go somewhere rough, I can.

    Plus, I think the RCI skid looks cool and I don't care what anyone else thinks.

    Mines a pavement princess over 95% of the time as well so you're not alone but it sure is nice to have what you need when you need it.
    I like the look better over most of the other skids as well and the lighter weight will be a better option for my commute to and from work. I'm not saying it's the best choice for everyone but I believe it'll be the best choice for me.

    Just checked out their webpage. Looks like some great gear.

    The aluminum is appealing, too....once you consider all the plates added together.

    That valve looks like a real time saver, too.

    I think the Fumoto Valve in conjunction with a short piece of hose is a great idea for our kind of filter change. Sure looks to be a much easier and cleaner way to swap out that paper element. The spin off filter arrangement is one of the things I really miss from my 2nd gen.
    The wingnut that designed that pseudo skid that you had to remove when doing an oil change needs to find another line of work! :facepalm:

    Total agreement.

    I simply don't understand the whole arrangement.

    Could've been so much more user friendly.

    I also had no issues getting the TSB done in FL, despite the "high altitude" mentioned in the TSB. My Taco is mostly stock. The only change in the drive train I have made is exhaust, mostly to help another member on TW, and I am quite pleased with the result. Truck post TSB drives so much better now.

    I used Bev Smith in Fort Pierce, they have treated me right and seem to work at giving "quality service". Clearly they want to pull in service work. Though I will say the service was not fast, took about 1.5 hours in and out.

    All my rigs are purpose built. From crawling to camping. I also enjoy a nice stock truck for what that’s worth. Toyota’s are the jam!
    @Blazingbluesport
    Nice looking truck, I like that setup! Like those two pups in the back as well.

    Well what about a thread that is “What you almost did to your Tacoma today”?

    I had a sweet deal on CL fall right thru my fingers. Alu-Cab Shadow Awning, Snowmaster 66..why god?!?:(
    Well not exactly the guy just sold his entire truck to his buddy. So at least someone got hooked up.
