    Well come to find out they have to reorder the part. They made my appointment for today, BUT they made the appointment last week before the part was available for the recall. So I’m assuming now that it’s available, they have to reorder it.

    They said it would be in in a couple days and that when I brought it the job would take about 3 hrs.

    Thanks gents, I appreciate that context. I'm a tall MF so I don't actually use them to step in, just for a landing pad when getting out and for somewhere to kick the crud off my shoes. Ironically, I sold a set of Rhino step bars to go with the OEM steps. Different strokes, and all that.

    I just picked up a rental carpet cleaner. Some of you know what this means.

    Installed LED license plate lights. I ordered interior led lights last year and I just noticed today that they also provided the license plate lights as well haha. Installation was easy, locking the lights back into place was a different story...

    Knowing nothing about where the camera is or sensors do this cover up anything important? Looks great

    Will not effect camera as that in located at the tailgate release latch.

    As far as the bumper caps, not all Tacomas have the sensors on the bumper. There are some covers that have openings for these sensors.

    :thumbsup: A tip for juuuuuust a bit of added security, insert the skewers from the Right ride (passanger),so that the lever can not be spun counter clockwise, which would loosen the nut on the other end.

    **edit** Pic of mounted bikes required!:rofl:

    265/75r16? Looking to swap my stockers out before winter hits, can't make up my mind what size. Looks good!

    Stock wheels and suspension. Random "utilitarian" mods featured on this great forum.
    Put on partial ppf (used Xpel 6" wide) on whole upper part of the tailgate to prevent grubby hands grinding dirt and other crap into the tailgate. Learned a few things in the process.
    1. No matter how many youtube videos you watch, it's harder than it looks.
    2. Leveling across a large area is really hard. Put in marking points to align.
    3. Getting all the bubbles out is probably the hardest part. While you're squeegeeing, the film is moving up or down because it has not fully tacked.
    I got a few bubbles after the install and they will hopefully dissipate after a few weeks. I'm happy with it overall and luckily I have a lighter car where the bubbles don't show up as much.

    Not the best pic but showing the line and a few of the bubbles as they reflect light differently. If it needs to be ripped off and redone, not a huge waste of $20.

    Also used TurtleWax hybrid ceramic spray after washing the truck and it's incredible. Will see how it holds up over time.

    Thinking of doing a strip of PPF there as well. Where'd you get the strip of XPEL from?

    Got it "used - like new" from Amazon: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0748QPJTP/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_aI2EFbS3VX1C8.

    Came repackaged with film and squeegee but otherwise untouched. Saved a couple bucks this way. In terms of surface prep, I didn't do much other than wash and wipe down with isopropyl. I literally have 2200 miles on the truck with minimal outdoor fun so the paint didn't needed correction.
