    Drilled two holes into the plastic shroud, and secured the SAE connector with a zip tie. :thumbsup:

    I do. But to each their own. Also ran updates for shift points. Shift better and sportier performance. I liked the PC commander. Just a clash of personalities, so to speak.

    Took her in for an oil change at the dealership this morn. Left for a few hours and came back, and got some rather unsettling news.

    1. Gonna need a brake job soon. Drivable obviously, but about 3MM left on them. Normal maintenance, but not something you really wanna hear.

    2. According to them, there is a minute oil leak. They said they couldn't trace is down. Possibly coming from the area near the power steering. Said they "cleaned the area up" but still couldn't locate it. The service writer said it could possibly be coming from a gasket. I haven't noticed any oil on the ground where I park, but guess I'll start keeping an eye out. Service writer said oil wasn't low, but to keep an eye out on it.

    She's a 2016 with roughly 50,300 miles.

    So I guess that invites the question for all the soothsayers of the World of Tacomas: anyone else experience an issue such as I described?

    Installed the Garmin mini dash cam today. I need the other direction short USB cable so cable pressure doesn't move the camera over time. Had to twist the dongle power supply wires to get it all hooked up. But other than that super easy install. I like the set it and forget it part. Got to remove my toll tag too as it shows on one side. Sweet. Just hope I NEVER "have" to use the footage from it but glad it is there now just in case.

    That's not the timing cover leak, is it?
    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/timing-cover-leaking-oil.484372/

    I came across this recently, and have tried to keep an eye on mine. Needing to triple check, but I think this type of thing could be covered under the extended powertrain warranty.

    I think @PapaRee had an oil leak on his 2016, I am pretty sure he told me it was covered under warranty.

    Another coat of paint after some sanding. And it's been 5 days since one of these sliders broke my big toe. The black spot on the nailmis where I jammed a hot paperclip through to let the blood out. Good times. I get to wear a walking boot for a few weeks.
    The toe photo is a few days after. The first day It was just blood everywhere.

    Yeah I know, you're all welcome for the ganked toe photo.

    Yeah Coastal Offroad. I am super pleased with the quality and accuracy of the cut pieces. Pretty amazing how everything lined up so well. I think there was one small 3x3" end cap that I had to grind about an 1/8" (if that) off of because my ocd kicked in lol. From my experience I would definitely recommend them. Flat shipping rate $140 to Idaho, no freight charge, etc. I think this bumper comes in ~100 lbs. Not too bad. I've got 886's waiting to go on when I get my winch in also.

    Ugh, that sounds delightful. Yeah, I'd like the full coverage option so I'm think AL to save the weight. Did you do any modifications or anything? [different lights/bar mount, hitch, etc]
