    Interesting idea. Did you experiment with putting some small battery powered ones under the hood to see if they had the same affect?

    Or you could an electronic repellent. I’ve been using one for a couple of years now since I had a rodent intrusion. They chewed up the knock sensor harness. Toyota and Honda use soy in the wire sheathing and it attracts them. I haven’t had any issues since installing this repellent. :thumbsup:

    I may have to give that a shot as well. I spray peppermint oil liberally in the engine compartment as well. Seems to work as long as I do it about once a week.

    So I got the 20" Baja Designs light bar too and had the same problem. The metal wasn't super thick on that so I just ended up bending them far enough for it to fit.

    No, I didn't try that, but I tried all kinds of things. My normal routine is to check the vehicles out once a week. Happened to notice a few acorns on the windshield cowl. Then when I raised the hood, I found more by the air filter housing. It tried snap traps, glue traps, bucket trap with food and could not get anything. I called the exterminator and he brought some black bait boxes with poison. It killed 3 then one of our dogs ate one of the dead ones which cost us another $600 at the vet. After a conversation with the exterminator, he recommended keeping lights on under the carport b/c mice and rats avoid the light. We swapped the bulbs from incandescent to LED and the problem went away. We have been doing this for a couple of years now and no more rodents under the hood of the vehicles.
    Note: we have NEVER had problems with mice inside of our home, shop, or pool house. I think they came from the neighbor's jungle of trees.

    I'll definitely give it a shot. Don't have a carport or anything similar for lights, but I'll try some small battery powered ones in the engine compartment. I have a small creek and an undeveloped green area next to the driveway that the little bastards come from. We've started parking further up the driveway with the front pointing away from the creek to try and increase the distance. So far so good since last week when I noticed signs of rodents.

    I got mine used and it has the TRD Pro vinyl on the back fenders. I'm trying to decide if it's staying or not. There's something about a nice clean truck that just looks nice IMO.

    You can get LED rope lights on Amazon cheap and they work wonders. We have them around our fifth wheel and have never had a problem. Something about the LED lights that rodents won’t cross the barrier. It just works!

    The LED was not as bright as the incandescent and more energy efficient. If you have spot lights on the eves of your house, you may want to try leaving them on at night. This also can eliminate anyone else that should not be around from peering into your vehicles. We have converted every light in the house to LED and it brought our electrical bill down $40 per month.

    How do you like the steerwheel blackout. Does it match the black of the steering wheel?

    Bed cover more to come.
    I have a white TRD and I was curious if 0 offset would work out and how much they would poke out. Does your truck have any kind of lift? I think I know the offset I need thanks for posting the pics. Good looking truck but I may be a little biased.

    No sir! It’s changed a bit in the back with an addition of a pool but zero grass to cut... it’s fantastic. Spray for weeds twice a year, that’s it

    Hey, the tires sit just a hair outside the fenders but pretty flush overall. That’s with an 8 inch wide wheel and 0 offset. Also, I have stock TRD OR suspension.
