    I used 18' coax from the driver tail light to the ash tray and it was very tight for me. I ended up having to string it across my floor instead of going up behind the steering wheel. I just put the floor mats. I believe you can get a small 2 or 3 foot extension if it won't be enough for you

    @Silver02Taco I don't see this option avail on their site for our tacos. You order an 05+ one?

    I had that same issue when I went to their site, and I ended up calling them to ask what was up with that. Long story short, if you call them, they will hook you up with the correct kit.

    Apparently it's a flaw in the website's code that they are supposed to be addressing in the near future.

    I called them, and got exactly what I wanted. :D

    Big possibility that it's the throttle position sensor. My truck did something similar and it was fine after we replaced it. The rotten egg smell is probably due to it running rich.

    That really sucks :( and you could put a new cat to see if she does run. If I was you it would be a great time to put a new exhaust on. Or at least new tubing with a new muffler? :thumbsup: The possibilities are endless :D

    That might be true but if they hit your rear end especially my truck they are going to face the consequences of hitting my trucks ass

    Here in California it's technically illegal to drive around with a trailer ball and hitch not towing a trailer but its not really enforced.

    You can have a flat receiver just not a hitch and ball installed.

    My color matched fender flares were getting crunchy near the rubber molding (kept chipping) and the clear coat was starting to come off quickly. I pulled them off.

    I had them painted and then I put new rubber trim on myself. FYI the rubber trim comes with an adhesive on it so it stays on.

    I always keep it on. I can see it being really annoying for me to take it off and put it back on.

    $16 for just one rubber trim for the fender flares o_O but I will do this mod soon. I already done my front/rear bumper and the grille. Need to paint these soon, tired of that plastic look. I'm gonna put 5 coats with a lot of clear coat to finish it off.

    I also got my mirrors painted (basically anything that was plastic and then painted was starting to have clear coat problems). The flares were the worst because the paint was actually flaking off. Four flares and two mirrors was $500. They did the painting prep (taping off the mirrors, sanding down the flares were the paint was chipped off so it would be smooth). Looking at the breakdown of the estimate, I am guessing the flares would have cost between $300 and $375 if I just had them done. For less than two car payments, I was able to freshen her up quite a bit.

    Pretty close to $16. About $13 each online. I also ordered the red and blue clips from clipsandfasteners.com Red are Toyota 90904-67037 QTY 18 and blue are 90904-67036 QTY 8. I got 20 red and 10 blue for about $18 plus shipping.

    [​IMG]

    The clips for the most part stayed in the fender holes when i pulled the fender flares off, but most of them were damaged. All, but one blue was trashed although more than half of the red were OK. I replaced them all anyway
