    in general, the 2020’s a little more sluggish than my 2015 4Runner was, but, like the 4Runner, I usually pop it over to “standard” shifting and drive it there, too. More responsive, and I don’t have to tap the breaks as frequently, like everyone else in the dating commute...

    I only ended up here in a Tacoma because ordering a new one with a manual trans and equipped how I wanted was significantly less than a 5 year old 60k mike used trail edition with a manual that I probably would have had to go 1,000+ miles to find.

    I'm not necessarily an OCD type typically, but just being able to see that spot would have me focused on it constantly, I comment from experience, lol.

    So are many bourbons (Jim Beam included) distilled in Nelson County, KY, which unless they recently changed in the last few months, a dry county.

    I have a black as well, and was considering blue, but I found that I prefer red, so that's what I went with.

    Hood pins?

    I haven't seen hood pins in a loooooong time.

    Hmmmm...

    Huh. Turns out that's a legitimate concern with aftermarket hoods.



    ...and they'd look pretty cool.

    Yup, that was me. @Rottencotton

    Follow the instructions in this video for disassembly. then...

    1. thread on the shift boot retainer until snug when it bottoms out, then back off just a lil bit
    2. secure the shift boot to the shift boot retainer with a zip tie (tight, but loose enough to be able to turn without twisting shift boot)

    Put center console back on (don't forget the electrical plug!)

    3. add included washer on top of the shift boot retainer
    4. thread on the gold thread adapter to the shifter as much as you can finger tight
    5. thread the new shift knob onto the gold thread adapter
    6. tighten the shift knob (should be going into the thread adapter, then down the shifter) until everything is snug
    7. tighten the shift boot retainer and shift knob so that they snug against each other --><--- (don't snug everything by bottoming out the threads at the bottom of the shifter)

    I guess for extra safety measure, hood pins are required.
    I never ran hood pins on my tuners and never had an issue lol.

    @dallas05taco If you get a chance, can you please post some pictures with the lights on and further back (with brake and turn signals if possible) All the pics on their website are close up. I'd appreciate it! Smoked lenses looks good on your truck!

    Technically, it meets the requirements for a bourbon but TN does an additional filtration step which classifies it as TN whiskey. They could call it bourbon if they wanted too, but then there is nothing to make it distinct, from a marketing perspective.

    Plus, they know TN bourbon/whiskey is inferior anyway... Haha

    I've lived in Nelson county for 15 years now. It hasn't been dry in that time. Jim Beam is in Bullet county as is the Four Rose's bottling plant (I'm pretty sure you can do a tasting at their gift shop). They are about 12 minutes from my house.
