    Probably don't have a camera or cell phone. I'm the same way.

    Lol. Painting on the go. I like that. Was curious if it came off as easy as doing the badges. Sounds like it did. I have some left over so I'll give this a shot. Thanks :thumbsup:

    I heard you needed something to do so glad I could help :rofl:. Glad you are happy with it. I'm concerned that the cross bars may interfere with the sunroof when its in the up position and don't like the idea that it rest against the roof. I don't want my paint damaged even though I've seen where people put trim around the edge and even put a strip of vinyl across the truck under the rack. I'll have to think about this for a bit. Thanks for the info. :cheers:

    Installed my @MESO coin tray. It’s the “Blemished” product at 1/2 ofd but this thing fits perfectly and I haven’t tried out any coins yet. Love the look with the TRD shift knob along with it too. 747D0761-2F5C-410E-8E7E-65EFD8A906FA.jpg

    Thx for catching that. Yeah there's not much clearance for a moon roof.

    A few minor things...
    Finally got around to fixing my tailgate bushing/hinge/slow down mechanism.

    Took around half an hour with the instructions on how to remove the rear bumper instructions from ADDICTIVE DESERT DESIGNS® website. You only need to remove the bolts on the right side of the bumper.

    You do need to remove the license plate lights and trailer light plug from the bumper.

    From Tacito's post found here. Here is the background on the bushing in question.

    Tacoma's built between August 2015 and February 2016 were equipped with:
    Bushing # 66143-04020
    Hinge Part # 66101-04020

    Tacoma's built February 2016 and after were equipped with:
    Bushing # 66143-04021
    Hinge #66101-04021

    The Tailgate itself and the hinge attached to the tailgate did not change and remain the same.

    What does this mean?

    If your Tacoma was built with the early version of the hinge & bushing and you need to replace your bushing, you will need to replace the hinge on your truck. Replacing the hinge requires the removal of your rear bumper.

    Not sure why... but for some reason this picture conjures up "enron" in my brain. Demonstrating the power and loss of the brain. Some picture from that time frame of a car in a parking lot having to do with enron in Houston made it into my long term memory.....

    Think I fixed my leaking Rough Country tonneau. Ordered some 1" weather stripping from Amazon. We had a pretty good down pour last night. Checked this morning and no water in the bed at all. I also sealed the cracks at the front of the bed next to the cab. I think the problem is Toyota decided, for god knows what reason, to channel water hitting the bed rails into the bed. The seal on the tonneau totally sucks and does nothing to keep the water out of the bed. Piss poor design. The cover came with a short piece of weather stripping that, according to the instructions, is for use on beds where the back rail is lower than the sides, this didn't apply to me but I put a piece across the back anyway. Think I'm gonna save up for a diamondback.

    A few minor things...
    I just did a fluid swap on everything but the transmission on my 2016 Sport with 70k miles...

    Transfer case got a bottle of Ravenol J1C1003 SAE 75W Manual Transmission Fluid - MTF-3 Full Synthetic (1 Liter)

    Front diff with ECGS bushing got 75W140

    Rear diff got 75W90

    Tried out 4WD and 4Lo on my driveway (300' ish) and had no problems. I tried it out on the street and drove for about a mile and there are no issues with anything.

    Grab one of these when you service all the diffs and transfer case. Replace all crush washers when you take the plugs out.

    Did you just use black spray paint? Was that center console cup holder "thingy" difficult to remove? How did you do it?

    :confused: Are there people that like chrome? maybe only the people that hate it chime in and there are actually a lot of people that like it. I mean, both of my cars have a plethora (Toyota and BMW) of it.
