    Needed new floor liners because Toyota changed the passenger side and added the twist locks.
    The Weather-techs were delivered this afternoon.

    My week off work and week of mods has come to an end. Got almost everything done I set out to do except derp my bumper/exhaust/front grill. Ill do that when it gets a little warmer maybe. Anyways. This week total mods done:
    5100 Bilstein level
    Gibson exchaust (need to derp the tip)
    Blackvue front and rear camera
    Tyger Cover
    Fixed heated seat buttons (they are sideways for now, clips are in the way.... fail)
    Armrest divider for storage
    And like 15 more little things like fire extinguisher, med kit, other little storage goodies etc etc. Most of everything was all done yesterday. Heres a few pics of the things I said. I got an exhaust clip if anyone interested. Just would need to figure out how to upload it here.

    Hope you enjoy the Gibson exhaust as much as I do. Had mine roughly 18 months and the sound is great. As far as a clip you need to upload it to youtube and then post the address here to link it.

    Man I had it now for just today and I am looking for any excuse to go drive it haha. Sounds great. Makes driving manual easier and so much more fun. Dont know if yours is auto or manual but on mine from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rs shifts it has this little pop pop when shifting. Makes me smile every damn time haha. Ill throw it up on youtube in a bit.

    I think Gibson is the best you can get for the price. I had a TRD exhaust in my cart but saved $200 getting the stainless Gibson. It sounds more throaty than the TRD. I used the BPF front recovery but had to grind a little clearance in the Pro skid for the d-ring to have swivel room. Mine is an automatic.

    Heres a quick rev and take off. Didnt wanna get on it too crazy as my neighbors are right there and they can be anoying sometimes. Will get a better video when I have someone film it. If you got good speakers and a sub I think it sounds lot better then phone speakers. Anyways here it is. Gibson exhaust 618814.

    Yeah that sounds good.
    Do you get any drone noise at cruising speeds?

    Had a Gibson on my landcruiser and it had the worst drone at fwy speeds....had to take it off.

    No drone at all. Its a fairly quiet exhaust and on the inside its almost silent. I filmed it inside with my phone and it barely picks up the sound. Keeping it in 4th gear at 40mph and letting off the gas and decelarating, zero drone. Only time you hear the exhaust is when accelarating from a stop, like in the video, higher speed it gets quiet, and at cruising speed, with little or no throttle, its silent. I hate drone and have had it be a problem on a few cars before but this exhaust on our Tacos sounds really great. Ill try and do some videos tomorrow that will show different speeds and RPMs but if anyone ever wanted a good throaty and deep exhaust then Gibson 618814 is the one. Also comes with a black tip, I wanted that one but it was like a month for it to get shipped and Im too impatient, so I will paint it black one of these days.

    Cool....i was thinking the same thing, but really wondering if there was enough space in behind there for the lights....worried that I would find out that there was NOT. After i cut the holes, of course....glad you are more adventuresome than I am :)

    Way I figured it is that, if I failed, then I had a good excuse to upgrade my bumper :rofl:

    It wasn't too bad, though I do have to say that getting the pods in there was a bitch. It's pretty tight and I had to file away some of the metal on the bumper as well as removed the lights for the plate.

    I like the way ya think, and the broken-bumper-need-to-replace is a good stance to take...alas, I suspect I might have to hold off...I reckon I will have a bit of a hard time convincing my bride that the truck we have had less than a month has a sub-standard bumper :smack:

    I don't anticipate the installation to be a lot of fun...lying on the ice cold floor with metal shavings falling into my eyes; how bad could it be? :laughing:

    Thanks again, Bro, good to chat.

    Ya.... I'd wait till Spring/Summer (or whatever that means in Canada) :D Not too hard of an install, if I do say so myself.

    Enjoy your weekend man!

    That happened to me too! Started banging on the side. Just popped it back in. It also happened once at the car wash. After the last time it's been good for about a month.
