    What he said. Either color match it or paint it in something that contrasts/complements your color better. That white/gold looks terrible, imo.

    List everything to make it look like I've done a lot and that my truck is special, 01-04 front end conversion, OME Nitrochargers, 883 springs, Dakars, painted bumper, campershell, sleeping platform, party lights, Pioneer double din radio, in vent window visors, OEM 2013 Tacoma rims, Hankook Dynapro AT 275/75/16
    Yeah it is strange. I'm not a fan off the plates, remind me of big ole lego pieces of something. I do wish there were some plates on mine to rest things on but that's what my tailgate will be for I guess.

    Also bought a pair of these http://www.ebay.com/itm/371886930216
    The side markers are exactly what I am looking for, no amber and not smoked. Needed the new headlights too since my old ones are looking rough from being taken in and out of the oven so many times

    I have a j style transfer case and rear locker with abs. I was just curious if these little were triggered by something on the shifter. That is. If I tied the wires from the transfer case into the proper lighting circuit would it work

    There are 3 sensors on the transfer case, one for transfer neutral, 4 HI and 4 LO. The instrument cluster as it is does not have any indicator lights for 4 HI for 4 LO, only for the 4x4 symbol. In a stock truck the sensors go to the 4WD ECU and didn't serve any other purpose otherwise besides lighting up the stock 4x4 symbol and working with the ECU

    You would have to custom make a gauge face where there are unused indicators and have a transparency printed or make one yourself. I'm in contact with a manufacturer of automation equipment who makes gauge faces for their equipment to have one made for me.

    Yeah that sucks. You can probably order them from @gunny1005, not sure how bad shipping would be.
    You in Vancouver? Can always get them from the Bellingham dealer.

    Nope. Southern Interior.

    Anyone got recommendations for online stores? Ones that will ship north of the 49th.

    I hate getting bent over by the dealership. It's basically a license to steal from Toyota owners. And seeing as other options are limited.....

    Rant over :annoyed:
