    Mine gets pissed off when there isn't an open parking place at the front door of wherever we're going.

    Same thing happened to me. I actually ended up trying to force the connection and bend one of the prongs because it wasn’t lining up. I had to take a small nail and bend the prongs up to where they would better for the OEM connection. Just try and find where it isn’t lining up.

    This is the blue ssr-612-40 medium duty version, the black -47 is the heavier duty version. If I remember right the older versions were taller could be used on the tundras and Tacoma’s. The old taller version rested on the frame on Tacoma’s which lifted the rear slightly and, from what I’ve read, caused a more harsh ride. Im stock and don’t carry any extra weight daily aside from the oem tonneau cover. There is maybe 1/8” space between the top and the frame on the passenger side but looks like the drivers side is just barely resting on it (taco lean). Unless I towed near the limit of the truck frequently I think the blue springs are going to be perfect for me as I only tow moderate loads a few times a year. Can definitely tell they’re there on bumps but it’s not uncomfortable by any means. Even if I was lifted a few inches I could see the value in these and think the blue version would fit most needs.

    Added a front license plate holder that I bought on this forum from https://www.tacomaworld.com/members/keaton1717.214533/. Thank you Keaton1717. He is a stand up guy and shipped it out quick - in new condition. Sorry - no pics, y’all know what they look like. It was a big improvement over the crooked way the crooked dealership had it screwed on.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family tonight. I'm 64 myself. Take care of your family, give them a kiss and a hug everyday if you can, and take care of yourself. Life is short.

    I have one. Works as intended for me. Was there a specific question you had regarding the Meso cover?3CB30539-21CF-4817-89C1-4D20C13ED674.jpg

    Lol. Good question made me realize I think I’ve only used mine once, accidentally while trying to smack my kids fighting in the backseat in Home Depot parking lot.

    Bro, that’s exactly what response I was hoping for or leading up to with my post. Your right- that’s what it was the older taco version raise the 3rd gens and it was noticeably harsher. And from my understanding that’s not how you want to raise the truck, not the job of bump stops. I’m stock also so that helps a lot. There is only 1 difference and that’s the cap (I think the standard fiberglass is shy 200lbs) and I have noticed a squat when I installed it 2 yrs ago. I don’t have any plans to lift it more than factory height presquat (I like the natural stance). It seems blue would still be better for me, I’d think the black being heavy duty would possibly be harsher without weight.

    Actually that picture is good. helps me out seeing it in use. Thanks.:thumbsup:
    Looks a lot taller. The clasp looks easier to deal with too. Toyota should have made it that way.
    I ordered it from Tacoma Lifestyle because the shipping was $2 less then MESo's site.

    It really boils down to this. If it makes you feel better, do it. If you like the way it looks, buy it. And at the end of the day, if it pisses you off, burn it to the ground. LOL.
