    What did I do to my 3rd gen today? I got totally frustrated with a relatively simple mod that wasn't. I bought a used set of the TRD Pro coilovers and tried to install them on my 2016 Tacoma. The Pro did not come out till the 2017 model year so there must have been a minor change since I have seen others do this mod but their trucks were 2017 or newer. The holes on the LCA for the bottom of the shock were a 1/4 inch off and I had to make a minor adjustment. Unfortunately, before doing that I tried using some gentle persuasion with a hammer with too much emphasis on the persuasion and not enough on the gentle. I stripped the main bolt that connects bottom of the shock to the LCA and had to order a new one. Now I hope to finish it up on Monday.

    I never plan on going off road, at least on purpose. The reasons for wanting this are first, they fix the Taco rake and lean i.e. pitch and roll in aviation terms. Second, they are rebuildable so they will not have to be purchased again and it will save a little money. Third, the red coils add a little bling and go nicely with my Wilwood BBK calipers. Finally, almost everything I have read says that they provide a little nicer ride.

    You guys have talked me out of the door bowl lights for the time being. I can't stand sloppy shipping and poor communication.

    I’m not going there. Actually not going anywhere your finger has been. Except maybe a Colorado stream. :)

    Not much concern for me, just good habit to lock all service areas. It’s like keeping your hood locked. Yea, Toyota is a bit behind the times. My ‘88 VW locked the fuel door with the doors.


    FAKE NEWS! This isn’t a real reason, it’s what you tell the wife. ;)

    Been meaning to post this for the last week. @MESO came through with some super-spiffy resistors for the Stage 1 kit as a cure for the hyperflash problem.

    upload_2020-9-25_18-33-25.jpg

    All aluminum finned cases, generous screw slots for mounting (or use the 3M VHB tape on the backs), connectors for plugging straight into the reverse/turn lights on the Stage 1 so no splicing necessary. I'm told these are 10 ohm, but I didn't measure them. All sent to me for the cost of the postage (around $8). I was really impressed.

    Didn't actually fix the hyperflash problem, though. Ah well...

    we put locking gas caps on our company trucks a while ago and then the meth heads drilled a hole in the tanks and put a screw in so they could tap it at their leasure. Parking lot cams and a visit from the state police solved it

    Put an aux power kit in from Overland Equipped

    Don't want a mess of wires attached to my battery from all the attachments I'm going to install. This kit comes with a 100A circuit breaker to protect the system and spaces for attaching 12 fused accessories. Took me about 20 minutes to install on my 2020 TRD OR. It attaches to existing points on the truck with no drilling etc. Overland Equipped Aux Power Block.jpg
