    What I have setup so far (working progress as I find what I need or think might need)

    I wanted a breaker bar but also wanted 3/8 drive so it was I think 10 or 12” which won’t be enough leverage in some cases so I cut a hollow tube for a cheater. Drilled a hole to keep the breaker from sliding out with a hitch pin. Strapped with the tire iron bag. The little pouch from blue mountain fits perfectly on the other side of the jack- only have a 21 and 19mm deep for the lugs and spacers, 1/2” for the replacement Colby tire valve kit. Led safety flashers for side of the road- fit perfectly in the spot above the jack.

    Behind the seat I have a torque wrench (mainly for the lugs), blackjack tire kit (Colby tire valves inside), noco40 charger and cables. The battery cables might be removed completely or just transferred to the box in the bed. Not sure if I really need them for a backup to my backup. But everything fits in snugly into place

    Thanks! I was leaning towards the rough country one, but I think the roll up feature will suite my needs better than the tri-fold types. This one appears slightly cheaper too, which is a bonus. Hopefully this summer in AZ won't be the record breaking heat wave that it was last year. :thumbsup:

    Edit: I see this is a tri-fold too. :annoyed:

    I hear you. I bought them drunk and impulsively. I got the Cali raised sliders because they were affordable and so far they’re awesome. I haven’t come down on them yet but use them to Jack my truck up when needed.

    Hahah thank you. It's getting warm already, I hope it levels out soon and doesn't keep climbing. The specific one I got is a roll up (I needed a roll up because we have an in bed tent for camping) try this link.

    Nice looking truck. It's got that industrial/commercial vibe going on that I like.

    New Project: Media Port - Relocation (So I can hide the Wireless Carplay dongle in the center console)

    Like a lot of people, I wanted Wireless Carplay. The CPlay2Air works *GREAT*. Only thing is - the MEDIA port is right in the front - and honestly - when I go WIRELESS, I don't want to actually see the damned CPlay2Air thing at all.

    Problem was - Toyota doesn't make a relocation kit.
    TACO_MEDIA_Relo_00.jpg

    Sooo... purchased the BATIGE Square Single Port USB 3.0 Panel Flush Mount Extension Cable with Buckle for Car Truck Boat Motorcycle Dashboard 6ft on Amazon.
    Media_port_ext_Cable.jpg

    Plugged the extension cable into it and shrink wrapped it together, then tucked it behind the dash and then routed the other end to the center console.
    TACO_MEDIA_Relo_01.jpg

    Cut out a small rectangle hold in the back of the center console, and secured the connector. Added a 12v socket as well...
    TACO_MEDIA_Relo_02.jpg

    The backside of the console! Not very exciting... I know...
    TACO_MEDIA_Relo_03.jpg

    This is with the CPlay2Air plugged into the extended Media port in the center console (and tested) and the 12v Accessory plug with a QC 3.0 and USB-C charge port.
    In the front - you can see the near useless USB 2.1 dual charge ports. They work *ok* but I've found that they are very underpowered.
    TACO_MEDIA_Relo_04.jpg

    Accessory USB QC 3.0 and PD/PPS USB-C port charger...
    TACO_MEDIA_Relo_05.jpg

    I *REALLY* wanted a center console Apple MagSafe charger - BECAUSE the stupid Toyota Qi Charger really makes the Apple iPhones HOT as hell. So... went with a 100% Apple iPhone charger solution instead. This works great - and doesn't overheat my iPhone 12 Pro like the Qi charger did.
    TACO_MEDIA_Relo_06.jpg

    Apple MagSafe plugged in... tested - and working...
    TACO_MEDIA_Relo_07.jpg

    Final look of the center console, with hidden CPlay2Air and MagSafe charger, and USB QC 3.0 charge cable (in case we have two iPhones needed to be charged).

    I’ve been thinking about getting one of those ever since I bought a t30 torx screw driver. Might get the tailgate lock thing if I get one of those.

    I mean I've only had it on for an hour now but I say go for it! As for the tailgate lock, I HIGHLY recommend that. I went with the oem toyota lock kit off Amazon and its one of the most practical mods I've put on the truck. I have a tonneau cover on the way as well so that will be great with the auto lock.

    Do you feel any difference with the Silicone Air Intake Hose?

    Yes. It has a little more pep when accelerating, and has a deeper sound. Doesn't drone out though which is nice. It has just enough to make up for what I lost moving to 275/70/17 tires a little while back.

    Installed the Rough Country driver and passenger bedside molle panels. It was a simple job, but did take a little longer than usual because I was dealing with the clamps to the Diamondback cover (and the cover itself being kind of in the way). I drilled holes and installed rivnuts on the driver side, because my 2020 doesn't have the driver side cubby where the bottom of the panel is supposed to attach. I also mounted my ARB compressor to the front of the driver side panel, to make some use of the space that gets lost when my fridge is being used in its slide. I still need to clean up the compressor wiring and figure out a better solution for the hose/connector.

    What did you use to plug the hole in the dash after you relocated the original USB outlet?
