    Thats true if it came from/off of the vehicle, not if they kicked it up.

    Finally finished building my DIY U-bolt rack system. I know you guys are jealous of the color coding. But this is basically such a space saver and so much cheaper (and way more work, lol) than a Prinsu set up. Part of me wonders if it would've been easier in the long run, but I dunno...this makes me feel like I built something cool. IMG_5290.jpgIMG_5286.jpg

    Found it on offerup. Got it from some guy in Long Beach for 3k even. He was cool and even helped me install it. I had to wire the third break light on my own back home.

    Thanks! The best part for me is that it all comes apart, gets stored in a little box and the bars fold up for those times of the year when I don't want to look like a turtle and don't want the wind noise.

    I just had my windshield replaced, too. Was on the way home from a trip about 3 weeks ago and took a rock to the lower driver's side of the windshield. Within 20 minutes, the chip turned into a huge vertical crack, about 18" long.

    I have State Farm insurance with a $100 glass break deductible. The claim process was done online, and I got to pick the shop I wanted to use. I called my local Toyota dealer to ask if they replace them. They told me that they do not, but they gave me the name of the shop in town that they use. That shop was listed in State Farm's directory, so I selected them.

    They called me a few hours later to schedule the replacement, and I insisted that they use an OEM windshield. They said that OEM parts require approval from my insurance, but they reached out and received that approval. I dropped my truck off the next morning, and the windshield was delivered to them that same morning. They installed the new one, and their "calibration guy" showed up at 3:00 pm to re-calibrate the sensor. I picked the truck up at 4:00, and have had zero issues in the 3 weeks since it's been repaired.

    Has anyone put an aftermarket grille on their TRD Pro? I've never seen it and nobody has come up with the idea either

    Made a little headway on my cab rack rock lights. If I wasn’t so OCD they’d all be done by now...

    Amazon 100 pack of zip tie mounts for $10, all the wire covered in heat shrink and overlapped at splits. Waiting on grommets to run through the bed right above the bed lights and I’ll tie right in to them, I want the bed lights and the rack lights to be on the factory switch. And they don’t pull anything for power. The brown is anti-seize because...OCD...

    Well, didn't do anything for my 3rd gen today, but preparing to do so. Got my blue MaxTrax boards in today.

    Y'all let me tell you something: finding these FJ BLUE Maxtrax MKII was a royal pain in the @$$ online. There were a few places online, but not many. Most said they were "out of stock" and were not sure when they'd be restocked.

    And to be honest, they're bigger in person than what I had seen online. And heavier. But certainly came well packaged (last pic).

    I'm waiting for a MaxTrax mount from @supralee (he custom makes them for $40 shipped if you're so interested).

    Just had mine replaced last month through Safelite. They replaced the first one with non-pilkington glass. Quality was crap. Distorted with imperfection right in my eye line. Thankfully they also screwed up the seal so they switched it because of that mistake and I said Pilkington class or bust. Back to Toyota quality with no issues. No price difference since I had to pay the deductible and your insurance shouldn't deny you wanting OE parts.

    Thanks!

    I love the softtopper. I regularly use the truck as a truck for hauling large shit around, so the idea of a hardshell was out of the question. This was mainly to give my dogs somewhere relatively safe to hang out in, and keep my gear out of the sun/rain/snow. It does it all perfect, and drops down so fast. And honestly, the price point is solid for what you're getting. I've had mine on since 17' and put almost 60k on the truck with it and I think it's holding up great.
