    I’m sitting at the dealer right now for that. Well, I brought it in for an oil change and it turned into that too. Hope I’m not waiting two months since I’m waiting here. :rofl:

    I have three sets of letters I’m not doing anything with (long story some of you may know). I’ll send it to him free + shipping cost. PM me the address if you want it.

    I pulled mine off the other day. Looks so much better IMO and I haven't noticed a difference in mpg. I drive mostly small town county roads and dirt roads though FWIW

    tell me about it. I was going to return them, I actually initiated the return online and it said I had to return it to the store. I never did it because I just didn’t want to go to Walmart. I think a few Tacoma Worlders took their chance on several sets, at least I didn’t lose that much.

    285/75-16 are finally on. Had to do a CMC luckily I live close to souther style offroad, quick 1 hour job from them. Had to do some very minor trimming for offroad, no rubbing on road or full flex. Thought I am very very close to the lower pinch weld, so might give it alittle love tap.

    There's a reason for that! Haven't heard of anyone that was unhappy with a Meso purchased item. I'd call that a pretty good track record!

    Epoxy'd the feet on the back of mine. The 2 faced Chinese tape is an inferior product.

    I think the air dam looks a bit odd on stock trucks because it hangs down lower than the rest of the bottom. But, I think it looks ok if you have step bars of some kind so that it flows into them better, from an aesthetic view anyway.

    I had one on my Sport of course, so I was used to it and kind of miss it now on my Off-Road. Also, I've heard not only the MPG argument but also that it can help with stability especially when towing. So I might try to find someone who ripped it off and just wants to get rid of it and then put it on my OR to test it out.

    I got the carpets cleaned yesterday!
    Well, everything except for the stairs. When I went to use the upholstery attachment for the stairs, the fitting wouldn't fit. So I finished up everything else and headed back to Home Depot with the attachment to get the right one. I spent more than a half an hour with a manager trying to come up with a solution. After he made a phone call, we found out that they don't have the correct attachment and they won't be in stock for a few months. We found an upholstery machine so I could finish the job, but he told me I couldn't take it until I brought back the other machine. WTF??!!?? So I ran home to get the machine and just return it for a refund. Running back and forth I was quickly out of time to complete the project anyway. When I returned (Now my 3rd trip), there were no managers available. An employee apologized and told me I could take the machine and we would work it out the next day. I told him I just wanted a refund at this point. He said they weren't authorized to do that and would need to get a manager. "Ok, please get a manager then." Another 20 minutes later, "both of the managers are out to lunch, but we can just refund the rental." Again, WTF??!!?? Got my money back, but I will never get my time back, and I value that a lot more than the $30 rental. I will NEVER use Home Depot for anything again. Rant over!

    How is this Tacoma related? Well, my deal with my wife was that I could get a scooped hood if I cleaned the carpets. I wanted to get that done before it was delivered. I guess I'll have to find another day to do the stairs before I install it. :/

    I recently got my pressurized water tank/sprayer in service. It’s made from 6” PVC and a garden sprayer hand pump. It holds about 4 gallons and pressurized to 20 psi. I’ve tested it up to 30 but get scared after that. So far it’s working much better than I expected, it sprays much longer than I thought it would. I still need to work out it’s mounting but a few straps seems to be a good temporary mount.

    This is awesome! Do you have a write up with parts? I've seen a few of these home made ones and I like smaller size of this one.
