    I punched out the factory pins that hold in the rear seat cushions and replaced with the quick-release type. I can now remove on reinstall the seats in about 30 seconds without tools.
    I also constructed a cargo/dog platform. It can fold up on itself for ease of installation and so I can access storage underneath. I’ll make a second piece to the platform in a few days so I’ll have the option of leaving 1, 2, or all 3 seats up or down.

    Day 1 -- I whipped out the old hair dryer and fishing line.

    I couldn't agree more!

    Factor in gravity and inertia too...lol--- but yeah it's better than the slippery hard surface that comes stock.

    I put a set on my F250. They worked great out of the box but the output went down significantly not long after (needed new bulbs) and the "coating" on the lights started peeling within a year. I was not impressed.

    Cut out OE frame horn bolts for extended ones...Screenshot_20210306-231323_Amazon Photos.jpg Screenshot_20210306-231346_Amazon Photos.jpg Screenshot_20210306-231403_Amazon Photos.jpg

    Also twisted his arm to add the Warn VR evo 10S winch into the SSO slimline
    Used the Tandem Offroad control box relocation panel
    Also used LambTek winch power switch option 1​

    Did the exhaust pipe chop so I can put a full size spare under there. It also makes the truck look cleaner. Function and aesthetics. Didn’t change the sound of the exhaust inside or outside the truck since what I cut off was past the muffler.

    ...and installed the Sokietech hood struts. No drilling required! These are super easy to install, and takes less than 10 minutes.

    This needs to go in the Mod Hall of Fame. I have been collecting a few of these ideas and probably need to put that together. For example:

    1) There was a guy who bought a shell that was too long for his truck bed and cut it to fit. Amazing.
    2) Then there was a guy who figured out a way to connect an air conditioner to the camper on his Tacoma. Beyond amazing.
    3) Then there was the guy who figured out how to do the chalk bag holder. Simple but amazing.

    And now this.

    I really should pull that forum together. Too much ingenuity, craziness, creativity, resourcefulness, you name it to be forgotten.

    Man, there are a bunch of them. Somewhere, there should be a Tacomaworld Hall Of Fame...

    Backup sensors in the front bumper,
    Rav 4 mirrors on the Taco,
    The OEM locking gas door,
    Reverse S-mode shifting,
    :notsure:

    It’s the hood scoop. This is an aftermarket hood from Revemoto. The paint match is a little off but the hood is capa certified and looks great.
