    Weather tech mats, LED interior lights and reverse lights, tube steps, bed extender, bed mat, folding bed cover, TRD Pro grill, blacked out badges and wheel center caps. Kicker speakers(all 6). Front bed rail header. Under hood LEDs. Tufskinz door and interior foam inserts. Chrome interior door handles. Fumoto drain valve. Aluminum oil filter canister. Rear view mirror with Homelink. Quick charge USB charging ports. TRD badge on grill. MESO fuse box cover. Redline Tuning hood struts. Ceramic coating. Pop & Lock auto tailgate lock. LED bed lights. Lower bumper LED light that bar. MESO coin holder. TRD cat back exhaust.
    I did mine way early because I’ve heard of people who waited until 20,000-30,000 miles and found that the fluid was very dirty or ugly from water OR didn’t have as much fluid as it should have from the factory. My truck has almost 12,000 miles on it. But like I said, I have peace of mind now and won’t worry about it again for another 20,000-30,000 miles.

    Finally installed the LED lights strips in my shell. I used the existing bolts from the Yakima roof rack, that protrude down through the shell, and made stand-offs from 1.5" x 1/8" x 1/2" sections of aluminum flat stock. The LED strips are housed in an aluminum track, with frosted plastic cover to diffuse the light. I'm controlling the lights several ways; using the in-cab bed light switch, the dimmer w/ remote control (pictured) and by way of an inline on/off toggle switch.

    Re-purposing the bed light was a bitch! Getting to the rear of the light required lowering the rear section of the headliner, which required removing the plastic pillar moldings; driver & passenger side, which also required removing the driver's side rear seat-back! Then I pulled the wire down through the wiring harnesses and looms, and then routed the wiring down through rear wall pillar, out through the wall grommet, and up into the bed--using one of the already drilled holes. I ran the wiring through some protective wire sleeve, to keep it from chaffing. It was a lot of work, but having the use of the in-cab switch, and the remote control made it worth the hassle.

    The led strips turn on just like the puddles; lock/unlock of the truck, and open/closing of the doors. Also, the cab switch can be left to on, and the dimmer's remote control can turn the lights on & off, and dim.

    My buddy pretty much gave me some brand new mud guards that he wasn’t gonna use. Threw em on today... Hopefully the rocks will stop hitting my steps.

    He also gave me his stock black fender flares. Might throw those on this week too!

    If you replace the fender flares with the black ones, recommend buying a new set of retaining clips for the install. Toyota does a good job with the flares using a lot of plastic clips to help secure it to the truck. The clips are colored blue and orange, so you need two types. They are kits on EBAY and Amazon that come with the correct amount of each color. Make sure and document which are which when you remove the Cement flares. Replace my Toyota flares with aftermarket a couple weeks ago. Some of the clips came off easily, others bend and broken.

    Reviews are subjective and I'm not dissing anyone for not going with this mod. If you think about what the pad was originally designed for and the constant pressure exerted along one edge you can understand how it may fail. If you look at the application we are using it for I don't see failure as a problem. Could I be wrong about that? Absolutely, time will tell! That said nothing lasts forever and how it is used will determine how long it will last. So far I'm satisfied with mine and for the money it's one of the most inexpensive mods you can do. $6 per application, what can you do to a Tacoma for six beans? In the end it's all in what you choose to do, no mod is right for everyone.

    If the OP is watching please send me a PM.

    My reply was in jest. Pot stirring.

    I bought 3. One for a mouse pad. Works great!
