    Here is the thread I followed. I ordered the switch from Amazon. It was all pretty straight forward.

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/garage-door-remote-mod.530879/

    The switch I got came with a pigtail connector, and you can wire it up in a few different variations for the led ring. I ended up wiring it to always be on. I tapped into the ignition fuse with an add a fuse.

    As for the garage remote , I just zip tied it up under the dash. I made sure to leave myself enough slack to change the battery in the remote in the future.

    I've read where quite a few people are having transmission issues hunting for gears around 45 mph and mine has that issue as well at times, but has anyone had theirs make a clunking sound when breaking? Sometimes when I'm applying medium pressure on the brakes and slowing from 15 to 10 mph, it makes that sound and feels like someone bumped into the back of me. Seems to be mostly when the truck isn't fully warmed up. I'm wondering if the latest update will resolve that issue along with the others. Due for my next service in around 1300 miles and will have them look into this issue.

    I get the chunk too. Feels like a hard downshift. Mostly when cold.

    After 3 years of looking at the chrome bumper caps on my SR5, decided to get them to black.. added the Ecoological Bumpershellz, and also added matte black vinyl inlays from Rich at TVDvinyl to all of my chrome badging..I've embraced some chrome, just decided I'd match the look of my Fuels with just the edge of chrome/silver.. Pics do not do them justice as they leave a nice 1mm or so edge of chrome around the letters. 1 before pic, two after..

    Little bit of chrome looks good on trucks some of these guys go nuts trying to eliminate it all. I like the letters you got I wish I did that. Did you do the side badges too?

    indeed.. they look nice.. the "C" in the pic has some shadowing, but is all good in person. I have an inlay for the front grille logo badge too, just didn't have time to install it..

    Nice man looks good.
    I think I’ll do them this summer with the hood struts. How hard were they to do? Did you use the wet or dry way to do em

    Mine was on the passenger side. I took the battery out and unscrewed a wiring harness to do the driver side which still took me several hours to complete just that one side. As for the passenger side, I used a hammer and a screwdriver to hammer out that bolt far enough before getting too close to the A/C lines. I then used some vise grips to pry that damn bolt out. The YouTube videos sure make it look like they just come right out with little sheet metal bending effort. That wasn't the case for me especially doing it all by myself. The 3"lift and the UCA's took me about 12 hrs to complete with basic tools. I don't know if saving $800 on labor to get a profession do it was worth the pain and suffering of taking on this project. Had I known the pita on this project I would have taken it in just to do the UCA's. The lift was a breeze and pretty straightforward.

    These were installed dry with the transfer tape they are attached to.. a little tedious..but after a few letters it gets easier.. the front logo one is going to need the wet method. Will tackle that one later

    Mine does the same thing when braking. Never experienced the hunting for gears.

    A little chrome looks good. Especially on the darker colors. The overlay makes yours unique.
