    Thanks bud,

    I used Rust-oleum on the Bed, Wheels, Bumpers, Skids, Sliders, and Grill.

    The "roll bar" in the bed came with a black coating and the flares are black plastic.

    Was going to clean my MAF Sensor today, but when I was taking the sensor screws out, I stripped the Phillips Head out of the top screw. :mad:

    Anyone know what size thread those screws are?

    Made a cool little mod today, melted battery mod which in turn makes fire/smoke in engine bay!!!

    Battery tilted and fell over while driving, which then fried my amp wire. Was wondering WTF my truck died and doing wierd electrical shit. Me and buddy seen smoke, jumped out, seen the battery hanging, clipped wires, placed battery back in place in a course of 45-60 seconds, didn't miss a red light at 5 O'clock traffic. Drove to starbucks, seen that the hold down hinge came loose, tied it down and drove away (with milkshake, F frappacinos)

    My battery is now melted a bit where the amp wire caught fire, but will be a constant reminder to me to always check it while I am doing maintenance.

    Will check in the morning to do a full check on all systems, but drove it for 2 hours after everything and seems to be ok. Go Go lil tacoma that could!

    you can still see the brake lights very well with my tint. the only thing is they do look very black so i hope i dont get pulled for them. the law says you need to see the brake light from 1000 feet but cops can be assholes in richmond
