    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 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.

    I think most every tacoma comes with radial ply tires. Bias ply are a bit of a rarity these days in the automotive world.

    I was just posting it for most anyone that was interested but you are welcome.
