    Yeah it's bolted to the trans tunnel. The seat version has a flexable shaft that will shake when off road from what I've heard. (not very stiff) so I have another style brace on the way. This is early in my mock up so was not prepared to post yet. Parts are coming from Wash. so it will be a year or so....ahahahahhaha.

    I also went with the 2020 grill, love it. I didn’t want to look like a lot of the other Tacoma’s on the road and I scored mine for $60.

    Picked up a Hi Lift from a member a few weeks ago and hadn't anything to mount it. I had some Caliraised low profile ditch light brackets i had been sitting on ,and decided to see if i could used then to mount the jack. Got some T slot nuts from ebay cause Amazon showed delivery 3 weeks out. Got some other nuts, bolts washers and came up with the below set up. Still some more tweeking to do, but i think it might work.

    Dragged my new to me trailer home today. Looking forward to a summer in the woods with the family and not sleeping on the ground anymore. :)

    They have a great sale going on currently, I just put in the mini h11 LED bulbs, and the V6 extreme front turns. I must say they are really bright, the front turn kit came with dielectric grease, heatshrink, and everything you need to mount, as well as spacers gaskets to seal it up good.

    Hey... just a note on those rubber mats. I have no proof that they cause issues, but take a look at 2 of my posts regarding the mat that goes over the wireless charger - if you have one :wink:

    Could you try something in-between? I just picked up this hand held for my boat. BAOFENG BF-F8HP 3rd gen. 8 watt dual band from Amazon for $88. And this thing is small!

    Got the lift put on. Not the best pics with the weather. Eibach pro lift, bottom notch, 1/4' spacer, 1.5" blocks in rear. I wanted to keep some rake. For whatever reason the rake looks more pronounced in pictures than in person.

    very true, but it's still a cheap back up to other scenarios. Just more risk mitigation.

    Same. Ive been researching this for a while. Want a small lift, but would rather have the fuel economy and rake needed for towing.

    Sorry if this has been covered, and it may sound a little strange, but, I've gotten the birds that love to crap all over my boat to stay away by hanging a few rubber snakes from the ceiling above it. My dad recommended it after it worked for him at his backyard bar, and it has worked about 95% well for me, still get the occasional badass bird who doesn't care and craps on it anyway. Also, a fake owl is supposed to work too.

    Ive installed Bilstein 5100s all around with 1 notch on the shocks in the front and RMAS system in the rear. Also added 1/4" spacer on front left.

    How stiff did you go on the roadmasters? I'm at dime spacing now, want to go up to the quarter. Truck rides a little rough on stock shocks and the higher setting tho.

    Sorry, got ahead of myself. What I reported is my "end game" for suspension. Fronts will be done next week so I will have an answer for you then. Everything else in the rear was done last summer though.

    On your suggestion, and I thought that it was a very good one, I tried the rubber snake twice! Drove away with the first one hanging off my mirror. Yup, you guessed it......gone. :facepalm: So since it worked the first time I bought a 2nd. That only worked for about a week even after moving it around every day.
    Enter the owl. Since I crow shoot I already happened to have one. After the 2nd day I got this from the bluebirds. :luvya:
    So while both sugestions were good ones, in reality their effectiveness was short lived.

    I stopped feeding the little buggers meal worms and for now they have gone elsewhere. We encourage them to nest here so once the weather warms a little more they will be back to breed and nest in one of the 8 bluebird houses we've provided. These guys eat a ton of unsects so they ar worthwhile having around.

    Still on the fence about the cover. Taking it on and off every time I need to use my Taco would be a real PITA.
    Now that the hose won't freeze every night I'll just spray off the turds as the need arises.
