    Big ones are King suspension, SSO bumper w/winch, Pelfreybuilt sliders.
    Pretty productive day!

    Installed the MESO stage 1 tail lights, used Velcro to tuck away the little control box.

    Attempted install of MESO puddle light switch. But apparently it doesn't work for the 3rd gen. Bummer because it's a great idea, and let's you use them as ditch lights on the fly.

    Installed a set of greasable pins for my Dobinson leafs. They made these bolts shorter to prevent rubbing and still give you access to the zerk fitting. But for some reason it's still making contact on the passenger side...I didn't have time to file/cut off the tip of it or figure out why it's different. Strange to me that they wouldn't match...manufacturing variance maybe?

    Your truck looks good but the Jeep behind it is another story. Who in their right mind mounts 50 lbs of steel in front of the windshield???

    I needed a place for a large water bottle because the cup holders are too small. I made this MOLLE hanger for my camelback pouch.

    The puddle switch is supposed to be installed in the small switch opening. It wasn't designed for the tall switch.

    I think the bolt should face AWAY from the hanger, btw. That will keep it clear.

    Also, the switch opening you are trying to use is the toyota "tall" ones and the MESO switch is a toyota "short" switch.

    You could move the ECT button as noted a few pages back. Then the mirror light switch could go there.

    Black Emblem Overlays, Black Smoked LED Head/Tailights Side Mirror Signal Lights, TRD Pro Black Grill with Raptor Lights, & LED Foglight Bulbs (LASFIT). That's it so far.
    The Fuel BLITZ Wheels are 16X8 with a +01mm Offset. Stock Off Road TPMS work with these so no need to order new ones.

    For tires I went with BF Goodrich KO2's 265/75/16 E Rated.

    No lift or after market suspension and I have no rubbing with this set up.

    When I swapped the stock speakers for the Kickers, I wasn’t that impressed. It was a small improvement, but not worth it IMO.

    ...then I upgraded the head unit. And what a difference! I think the power difference really made them come alive.

    What did you go with on your head unit upgrade? I did the kickers too and sound deadening and also...not a huge upgrade.

    ok, dumb question, but Im sure someone here knows. The plug thats unplugged in this picture, I need to tap into one wire on it and I want to tap into it inside the fuse box to make sure it stays clean. So, does anyone know how to pop the plastic cover that holds that wire bundle in? I need to route the new wire up the same hole so its not pinched by the edges of the fuse box cover.

    I think it pops up to get it out, might be a clip. It's been years since I did mine

    I tried for like a hour last night to get it up, but it wouldnt move. Does the main power wire need to be unbolted first, then pull the "loom cover things" off one by one. Looks like they overlap.
