    Autoanything.com. Overnight was the only option to Alaska but I expected a few days to process the order :notsure: I'm pretty happy haha. Just need to find a place to mount them to my current tires as I don't have the new tires I want. Probably won't for a few months.

    Not so much what I've done but trying to decide what to do next.:frusty::frusty::frusty:

    Option 1:
    Complete CB setup using Bearcat 980. Its the cheapest of the options but I may only "need" it a dozen times a year.

    Option 2:
    RAT skids. Self explanatory as far as their value. Most expensive option. I haven't "needed" full skids yet but this is something you want before the need.

    Option 3:
    SOS Bedbar with spare tire carrier. Second cheapest option. The advantage is that I'll eventually get larger tires and will need some place to carry my spare. Also has the advantage of carrying a hi-lift and allows the placement of a tool box. Downside is it effectively uses up the truck bed.

    Option 4:
    SOS LP rack with hi-lift mount and spare tire carrier. Second most expensive option. Has the same advantages as the bedbar but allows full use of the truck bed and is low profile. Not compatible with a tool box.

    My vote goes towards skids, just installed my sliders (only protection to date) and I have had my CB mounted for the last 6 months without using it!

    I'd say tough choice between 2 and 4. But based on NEED instead of WANT, I personally would opt for number 2.

    What did you use?

    I might buy Raptor Liner and do my rocker panels and that same area.

    Plus I have to do my tailgate and above the tail lights where the topper has rubbed off all my paint because the weather stripping is spent.

    I used the Harbor Freight spray on bed liner :anonymous:
    It's held up well on the bumper and the sliders so far.

    Isu2014 is a great salesman.

    Just bought a 3-piece set of 1/8" skids.

    I think Toyota put the rotation sequence in the user's manual but I'd have to check.

    I rotate in the spare so it is different: Spare -> Front Driver -> Rear Driver -> Front Passenger -> Rear Passenger -> Spare. Learned it a long time ago and haven't checked it against recommended sequences.
