    Save yourself some heartache (and tired hands) and do this with an eraser wheel. Takes about 15 mins total, versus 30 mins each side with the goo gone and blow dryer.

    Yes they are. I like them a lot, however they took a good month to come in. And when they came in the fabricator didn’t put all the mounting tabs on. So they sent them to me and I had to get them welded out in town. But again I do like the bars.

    :thumbsup: I figured the delivery time would take awhile but thanks for the heads up about the mounting tabs not getting welded on. I was looking at the tall bars and didn't see an option for getting the tabs automatically added to the order. I'll be sure to contact them directly if I go with their bars.

    Have you considered getting some of their gear panels for the sides? They look strong enough to keep your dogs in and you could lash your netting to them too.

    Anybody tried one of these Swing Case's? $200 online. Appears to be a smart, secure option for the bedside.

    What did I do to my 3rd Gen Tacoma today? Got it even dirtier if that is even possible. New Pup is learning more everyday. Now if I could just improve my shooting...

    Says you are in SLO. Went to Margarita Lake last weekend. Is that anywhere near where you hunt?

    Stopped at Pismo on the way home. Wanted to drive on the dunes but it's still closed.

    @CBoy808 is my go to guy for custom graphics. He's very good and pretty reasonable, many of us here wear his work. Very easy to work with during the design stage.
    He has a thread here. "Custom Stickers Made In Hawaii", check it out. Have fun Bud it's all down hill from here on!

    I had a similar experience. Bought the truck at 14000 miles and the tread already looked half gone. Currently they sit at about 4/32nds. They will be getting replaced before winter.

    Gave her a bath, a quick wax, and the ol' Woolwax treatment. But since she's black, she's already dirty again! What a mess Woolwax was, but I have a little peace of mind for the winter. Hopefully I was thorough enough.

    Bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work. Don't know who first said it but I concur.

    Excellent! Yeah my current ones are water resistant but I've spilled oil, honey and dog vomit to name a few and it's sat... And given me time to get home, remove the covers and wash them no soak through so I'd be very interested to know! Also how hard the install is...

    Installed the rest of my switches and moved them to the cubby. @CaliRaisedLed OEM switches, cubby panel and the dual usb outlet!
    Tapped the lights so they glow at night then get brighter when on. Tapped the cigarette fuse for the outlet so I don't kill my battery on accident.

    Also installed my @GDESMOND1976 Desmo Overland center console molle panel. Dusted my screws with black spray paint and it looks excellent!

    I added a new switch for my Hella 500s. The stock one was some chintzy little circular switch, so I bought a new switch that fit into an existing switch blank (with just a bit of trimming). It works very nicely and certainly looks tidier than original switch. The Hella 500s come with a wiring harness for everything, but I ended up using a fuse tap on the interior fuse box for the switch's power supply, instead of hooking it into any existing wires or attaching it right to the battery (a 2A fuse is spec'd in the original harness, but that uses ATO-size fuses so you will need to buy a Low Profile Mini-size fuse tap and Low Profile Mini 2A fuses if you go this route). I tapped into the "washer" fuse, which was 10A. The lid for the fuse box will not fit with a fuse tap installed, so I ordered the Meso Customs extended fuse box cover.

    Overall, I'm very pleased. This is the first electrical project I've ever done on a car, and I'm happy with how it turned out.

    It can be. The lake is surrounded by Las Padres National Forest which has a lot of Quail. Today I was on BLM land closer to the Valley. I thought Pismo dunes were opening up again?
