    My buddy likes the midland CB because it can be dual purpose, hard wired in the truck, or battery for handheld use. The antenna can also be the standard magnetic type, or the flexible portable type. We haven't tested out the range yet, but I'm sure it depends on the antenna setup :notsure: Honestly, most use the GMRS frequency because of the ease of use and the abundance of handhelds. :thumbsup:

    Well, I have been on a kick lately to customize/improve my taco.... (19 SR)
    between day before, yesterday and today I have purchased the following.....

    Speaker upgrades (yup all of them!) including sound deadening (we all know the 19 SR audio is fair at best)
    https://www.amazon.com/Rockford-Fosgate-R169X3-Speakers-Coaxial/dp/B00GSUDFP8
    https://www.amazon.com/Connector-Harnesses-2001-2019-2012-2019-Vehicles/dp/B08J4BXNNW
    https://www.amazon.com/Metra-82-8148-Speaker-Adapter-Vehicles/dp/B00IIC63P8
    https://www.amazon.com/Metra-82-8146-Speaker-Adapter-Vehicles/dp/B00IIC6CPE
    https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-Subaru-H631SFJ101-Tweeter-Kit/dp/B00PV6F8I2
    https://www.amazon.com/Kilmat-Deadening-Automotive-Insulation-dampening/dp/B0751CBXBT



    usb power w/voltmeter going in empty switch port, probably going to tap into cigarette lighter power but I’m up for suggestions (it said it was for Toyota but I am not sure about fitment!!)
    https://www.amazon.com/MICTUNING-Upgraded-Voltmeter-Compatible-Cellphone/dp/B08PB972RF



    Side emblem black. have an SR so I don’t have side emblems and don’t know if these will work
    https://www.amazon.com/Blackout-Compatible-2015-2020-Marketplace-PT948-35180-02/dp/B08PZBJZ8S



    Interior led lights (because the interior lights are kind of dim, like me)
    https://www.amazon.com/AUTOGINE-Bright-Interior-Package-Install/dp/B0834MGNHM



    glove box organizer
    https://www.amazon.com/JDMCAR-Compatible-2016-2019-Organizer-Upgraded/dp/B07RPM19KK



    Chrome cover up! (Sometimes the glare blinds me)
    https://www.ajtdesign-llc.com/onlin...oma-2007-Tundra-2010-4Runner-BLACK-p193146122
    https://tvdvinyldecals.com/products...oard-blackout-kit-for-2016-2018-toyota-tacoma



    Glove box 3d(ish) letter (they look cool)
    https://www.ebay.com/c/25004265030



    3D tailgate letter (also they look cool)
    https://empyreoffroad.com/products/...med-raised-3d-tailgate-letter-inserts-plastic

    though I took a fair amount of care and did my research it’s possible I got a part wrong (especially the side emblem cover ups and USB power) so please do your own research to find the correct parts for your vehicle

    I tried to buy most stuff from Amazon for the easy returns and recommend it, especially if you are a prime member.

    I am glad I got the SR because it’s like a clean slate I can make mine with upgrades. Plus I got an awesome price too.

    Ya, that's a nice power outlet, but I'm not sure about the light surround. Although, it is pretty cool that it goes from red to blue when charging is complete. You might consider this one to fit the center switch panels. I'm not confident the other one will fit.

    For the A/T shift window (which IMO provides the most glare), I went with this in flat black.

    I'm very surprised that it would work with the truck not running, since the outlet only supplies 100W in that case, and I would think that the vacuum cleaner would draw more than that. However, I'm fine with using it with the engine running so that the outlet is in the 400W mode.
    Yes, I saw that video sometime back, and it is quite interesting what you can and cannot operate from the outlet.

    Thanks for the response.

    did OEM TPS work? I watched a set on eBay and they just emailed a discount...I assume you ordered black lug nuts too. Mag type, not conical? And thanks, company is not taking phone calls right now. These are great looking.

    I like the idea of the lighted rim and voltage indicator but I like the idea of clean factory looking install more so I my end up using that one you've recommended thanks! And maybe the shifter vinyl if mine doesn't work as well as I'd like..

    They can be left open, but they would be "loose". When they are closed they have a latch system that installs.

    With it in the latched position, it opens from inside the bed (not the bedside).

    Got the leaking axle rebooted and installed. The tulip was on there good as it took me three hours with a hammer, a punch, some penetrating fluid, and a torch to finally get it off. Never once did it let loose until it was completely removed.




    Also adjusted the coilovers back down to about 1” of lift to keep from topping them out on fast off road stuff. Makes me want to add limit straps in the future.

    Got a JLT catch can kit too in the hopes that I don’t hydrolock my engine at steep angles. Cheap insurance that may or may not work :notsure:

    I have a tire/wheel warranty where as long as my tire is not bald, and wheel is not destroyed then Toyota will replace my tire/wheel FREE if any damage were to come of it.
    Better example, I could’ve gotten a nail in my tire the day after I drove it off the lot, and instead of patching the tire they would just give me a brand new tire free!! But it’s the same tire I get back (Goodyear Wrangler Kevlar Edition)
