    Well I finally installed these. Had them in my garage for a couple months. Bleeding them is by far the worst part. Got the full kit from SOS performance. It’s designed for our trucks which makes a world of difference. They machined Brackets for the calipers of course but also very well thought out fittings to repack the banjo bolts and such. Excellent customer service too not to mention the ongoing club discount/ GB.

    also you really don’t know for sure until the install is done if your 17” wheels will clear the caliper so that was nerve racking. Someone should start of spreadsheet of known fitment

    Not today, but over the last several weeks I completed some items I had laying around

    A/C Drain mod & Rear Diff Vent mod (not pictured)

    AC1.jpg AC2.jpg

    Grab Handles for the folks getting in the back

    headrest.jpg

    Thanks @crashnburn80 for the Reverse Light recommendation. Huge improvement and I bent the pins in the socket for a tight fit

    reverse.jpg

    My first @MESO purchase to finish off the exterior chrome delete (before & after)

    meso1.jpg meso2.jpg

    Some DIY Raptor lights. Tried tapping into DRLs, but they only came on with parking lights or headlights. Was hoping it worked with DRL setting, but ultimately ended up doing add a fuse on INJ fuse.

    rap1.jpg rap2.jpg rap3.jpg rap4.jpg

    Thanks @bshammer0 for the post on the Kicker speaker upgrade. I did the tweeters and all 4 doors, plus some 50mil Kilmat. Big improvement on sound quality, can hear the individual instruments better. Ultimately will add an AMP to increase overall volume but the "roommate" and I are very happy with the results.

    k1.jpg k2.jpg k5.jpg k4.jpg k5.jpg k3.jpg

    Went back to the Meso well to start the Interior Chrome delete

    mi1.jpg mi2.jpg

    And finally the Taco Sauce Only mod, which I believe gets you an additional 5hp at least.

    Also got out to a local OHV park and had some fun after some local downpours, and then of course had to clean her up

    Looks wise it depends on the color. Lighter colors it absolutely looks better with it off. I’m sure mine will be ripped off while off roading if I don’t take it off soon. So far it’s just really scuffed up from rocks.

    A lot people remove it. Its really simple to unbolt and take off. I removed it from my 2020 Sport and have no regrets.

    Does anyone know if the air dam protects the suspension components from road grime? I will take mine off today if I know I'm not going to be prematurely rusting out up here in the north east.

    I'm sure there's a little bit of protection. But I think the intent is more aerodynamics. However for your info, none of the other models comes with this (i think), so if you're worried about rusting, Toyota isnt.

    Winterforce uv2 that I had on my 18 Colorado 6mt fit to a set of OR I bought In classifieds.

    Dealer said they activated my TPMS however, they said they deactivated my stock set up. The tech told me that Tacomas cannot hold more than one set in their brain at a time.

    Drove this morning and nada... the screen shows - - at each corner. Stocks are put away so the sensors shouldn’t be trying to read them. I think They need to reactivated the winter TPMS (if they ever pulled out the tool to turn them on)

    It's for aerodynamics. In theory it's good for 1 MPG. Haven't seen (or even looked for) a controlled test to prove it. It does reduce approach/departure angles when offloading. It's also a good bug catcher and a little in the way of the front skid plate bolts when doing oil changes.
