    Are there any existing screws you could make use of? I see the Cali Raised side molle panels use 2 of the upper screws for the cubbies.

    Looks good from here. I concur with the R/W/B option, but the matte looks good too!

    My OCD wouldn't let me do this... Back in the day If you liked 2 sets of wheels and couldn't decide in the import crowd, they used to put 2 different wheels on a car, one set on the left one on the right... I couldn't do it... O....C....D.... I am getting a headache even thinking about it.

    Nah, you don't really have OCD, you just think that you do.

    If you REALLY had OCD you'd be spelling it properly. :cool:

    Finally ordered a new suspension for my '17 Taco DCLB! Ironman 4X4 had a pretty good deal for black friday at $899 for the full kit, I couldn't resist. Planning on installing it mid-December, but I have a question if anyone could shine some light. Do I NEED to change my UCA with the new suspension? I mainly commute with my truck and once in awhile (every other month or so) when I have time, I'll go hit some light trails. So with that in mind, would I be fine just keeping my stock UCA with the new suspension? Thanks, and Happy Thanksgiving y'all.

    Just daily driving it.

    It does not make up for the lack of torque, but it does make the truck easier to drive... meaning that I don't have to stroke the pedal to the floor every few minutes to get it moving.

    I only use about the first 1" of pedal travel now... which also makes it feel like it downshifts alot sooner/more frequently.

    After having it in a few weeks... I'm still happy with it... but havent changed my opinion that Toyota screwed up royally with this clusterfuck mismatch of engine and trans combination.

    Once I have ample equity in it, I will trade it for something I actually enjoy driving again.

    I don't notice any difference... as I dont use ECO mode. The truck is enough of a pig as it is.

    I prefer the better gas pedal feel with less input from my right foot.

    I just installed my n2 remote start, took all of 10 minutes and you only need to remove 1 panel around the steering wheel. It might of been easier to remove the knee panel, but it was just fine with only the steering wheel trim panel.

    Probably should but it kind of depends on how high you are going. If its over 2" just do it...While you have it all tore down. Wish i would have , Ive gotta get UCA's and I thought i wouldnt have to.

    Guilty! While waiting on one of the free services on my AG FJ, I was caught looking at the 4Runner. Told them my car is inside, make an offer. They offered me the same price I paid a year prior. So for the price of sales tax, I put 18k on the truck and traded it a year later. I sometimes regret not changing my own oil that time. It was a cool FJ, then they stopped making them.

    Had my BP-51 ride height adjusted from 5mm up to 13mm (1”) and had an alignment done today. Hope this will stop the minor rubbing I was experiencing and so far, so good!

    Plan to take her out this weekend to confirm, was really hoping I wouldn’t need to do any trimming.

    Nice. I’ve been looking into these but not sure I trust myself enough on the install so may just get one through a local place around here.
