    Where from? Looks like an decent alternative vs. the TRD one from the stealer-ship.

Meso products are so clean, stew really stands behind his product.

    Will see what it looks like in a week or so.
    Looks like the TRD plate but seller says it doesn't have any emblem at all. It won't fit SR, SR5 or TRD sport unless you remove the plastic lower valance under the bumper. No loss on that. Yeah it does look good for around $300

    I get things have slowed up due to the Covid, workers being out, and quite simply put: demand is greater than availability.

    But sweet Jesus, my fam got Christmas cards a day or so after NYE that were mailed out in early December. One came from somewhere in Florida. And I can understand it might take 3-4 days in a "regular" mail day. But damn. Cards after NYE and were mailed out in early December?

    A close friend of mine who I knew through college recently passed away. His mom lives in the next county over. I sent a sympathy card (might be a 30 minutes drive). But I mailed the card last week. Lord only know when OR if she'll get this coming week.

    The picture was not mine. It was from @tclavell.
    Under my carport, we have just traditional LED bulbs in a standard fixture that are cool white bulbs. 13watts? I can't remember.

    I hear that stuff happening all over. Even I got Christmas card after new years this year.
    One thing the postal service is doing better than the IRS. I sent in 2 returns at the end of March 2020 and they still haven't proccessed them yet. Last week i called and was told they are about 7 million pieces of mail behind. When they were closed March to July the postal service dropped trailers of mail in their parking lots. I'll be waiting who knows how long.

    For sure some pics of it unpacked and installed.
    I'm hoping it's decent.

    It amazes me the IRS can be so quick to demand money (and or take it from you), but when it's due to you, they scream "HOLD UP!" But that is a debate for another day.

    In other news:

    What did I do for my 3rd Gen Taco today?

    I let the battery run down. I'm guessing I might have left a light on inside? I tried to crank it up this afternoon, and it was a no go. On first try, it clicked several times and would never turn over. Second time, same thing. Then I propped the hood up to make sure all the connections on the battery were good. Tried a third time, and it wouldn't even make the "click" sound. Then it dawned on the interior lights (a la @MESO ) weren't even bright anymore. Have a friend helping boost it off in the morning after work. Hoping it's only a battery. :fingerscrossed::fingerscrossed::fingerscrossed:

    @playdixie we have all let lights on sucks but good that you have help.
    I have a battery charger in case and an RV battery on a tender all winter.

    I actually owed the IRS money years ago and they were pretty good to work with as far as payments. I wouldn't push them too far, they did put Al Capone in jail for tax evasion.

    I'm having the same issue recently with my 2017 TRD OR. Just 2 days of sitting and the battery is dead. I did have the battery replaced just 1 year ago at around 60000 klms. I have disconnected all aux circuits that may be bleeding power so will see if that is the culprit.

    Some of us are already running the version with the TRD embossed, for a faux TRD skid plate they have held up very well.

    Yellow laminx. I might go amber, the yellow has a green glow on the cement paint

    there is one sell on Amazon for same price, it’s much easier to return it.

    it’s close to OEM, both has similar weight.

    I installed Trd pro exhaust for long bed to my short bed truck.
    I have to cut about 14inch off the long bed exhaust, currently hold by exhaust clamp. Till my friend have time to weld it for me.

    I only pay 400plus 3hour travel for the exhaust.

    Not a bad price. But I guess I'm curious as to why it seems each reviewer is saying to move the bolts and spacers? They each repeated each other saying the stuff was put on wrong from whatever factory these come from.
