    I haven't installed mine just yet, but I do have the breather laying here. I just sucked on it. It does let air in, just a very small amount. Far less than it lets out. I think this is a feature, not a flaw. I just took my taillight off two days ago to wire my canopy. I am amazed at how much dirt and dust was in there. I was already wondering about the two way breather being back there considering it. If it lets any air in that means some of that dirt is going to find it's way into my diff.

    Not too worried about it though. It's supposed to be the same part used on the front. I don't imagine the tiny amount of dirt that is going to get in will be a problem. I sure wouldn't want to change it to let more dirt in though.

    That's a great idea. Do they rattle around when you are driving? Seems like they would make a fair amount of noise. Planning on ordering some to add to the two that came on the bottom, might add some in here.

    Yes sir, I got full PVC black with red stitching. Not sure about the delay though, they told me custom orders take anywhere from 8-12 weeks and mine arrived after 6 weeks. They are definitely worth the wait.

    Has this box always been here? (Blue circle - this is a screenshot from the bottom of this thread) Just saw it. Clicking it takes you to the post about the item. That is going to be so helpful when browsing old threads and trying to figure out what parts go with what post.

    I love it :D

    I am also easily amused :rolleyes:

    Never noticed that! Super useful, especially if it about installs, experience or advice on the item.

    I removed the bed side stickers when it was new, but every time I wax it I want to debadge the chrome Tacoma on the doors and v6 on the tailgate. Your photos have me convinced. They are coming off the day before the next waxing.

    Filled up with gas. 402 miles for 16.3 gallons = 24.6 mpg. On and off highway with fastest speed around 65. I love it. A little over 2000 miles now. The TRD exhaust is starting to sound good too.

    The exchange rate is killing us and I think the couriers are hiking the price since the C-19 thing has occurred.

    Changed oil for tranny, front and rear diff, and greased the only zerks I could find on my front driveshaft.
    Is the non-serviceable rear shaft supposed to be better than a grease-able part?

    Don't you also have to pay the 5% VAT on stuff you buy from over the border. I don't remember if it was one of you guys, or someone from the UK, but I recall be asked to make sure I put "used" on the customs form.

    I'm not sure what the reason-du-jour is, but shipping has been really expensive. They used to say it was fuel prices, but for a few months there, gas prices were at record lows and we sure as hell didn't see any break in the rates.

    Even the small flat-rate box from USPS jumped up from around $5 to over $8 USD a while back.
