    It's a Leer camper Shell.
    Not sure on exact model# - I believe it was designed for the previous generation Toyota pickup truck though it fits rather nicely.
    The roof side windows and front windows I was told did not come stock but could be added through the dealer.

    I reached out to Leer with the S/N to get the year/model # of it.

    Thought this was your setup as well. I've been using this in the stock 'cold air intake' (which it is) and am completely satisfied. Haven't bought a paper filter in 4 years :bored:

    Ran the Coyote Flats trail down to Big Pine in the Eastern Sierras over the weekend...blew out one of my new 33" St Maxx tires. Rounded it on a sharp rock I guess, sliced right through the sidewall...was pretty disappointed, never had an issue with my BFGs despite playing on tons of sharp rocks. Hopefully it was just a freak accident, didn't have any issue with the rest of them but had to run a 32" KO2 spare since it was all I had with me. Made for an interesting 200 mile trip home lol.

    More photos to come, just what I have on hand ATM

    Bummer about the tire! Looks like a riot of a trip.

    And the KO2s aren't perfect either. Some pointy rocks killed one on me. It happens.

    True, I've seen a couple friends of mine destroy some BFG KM2 sidewalls before. Was weird though because this happened on a fire road pretty much, but then again I was going a lot faster so that was probably what did it...rounded it on a rock harder than I would have if I had been crawling.

    Either way, the rest of them held up great the following day and for the pretty tough black diamond trail we took on the way out. I was sweating hard because I didn't have another spare and we were way out in the middle of nowhere lol. But all was well.

    Those holes are cut into those frame plates to allow rosette welds. Having the rosette welds scattered over the length of the plate allows for more surface welding for attaching the plates to the actual frame.

    Yes, I'm aware what and why a rosette weld is. That wasn't the question. I was wondering about the trails between them. Given what the other fellow said, best guess is that's where the waterjet went to low pressure and tracked to the next hole during manufacture.

    I am looking for an idea on what part to order.

    This would be part of the tailgate lock mechanism.

    As it is now, the tailgate handle wont work, I can fix it temporarily. If I remove the inside panel, connected to the handle is a rotating assembly that is connected to some steel rods that control the locking on the ends. As it is, they pop out of the rotating plastic they are attached to if there is too much pressure, if the tailgate isn't closed gently, etc. I thought I took a picture of this but I didn't. I can pop it back in so it functions, but it wont last, it pops out almost immediately.

    So I think I need that rotating plastic piece. I might also need the metal replacement tailgate panel I see some places offer (BAMF, etc.) to increase the rigidity of the tailgate.

    I installed and auxiliary fuse block, mil spec terminals and a new cheepo battery I had laying around. I messed around with several fuse block mounting ideas but then decided to attach it to the lid of the existing one with a step down bit and some misc hardware. I mad sure to leave myself slack on both ends to access the fuse block below. I have not had any issues yet.

    Out with the old mess

    In with the New

    - Terminals - Military Spec Battery Terminal Top Post Kit
    - Battery -
    ACDelco Professional Gold Battery - I pan to upgrade to an AGM battery in the near future but this one was free.
    - Main Fuse - Mega 125A

    If you don't get an answer, I will look into this on my truck. I need the same part, sounds like.

    How do you intend to read the label on the cover of the OEM fuse panel?

    That fuse is scary...

    I've had the deckplate mod for well over 10 yrs & never had a problem passing visual inspection for smog. I do always leave it closed though.

    BTW, I also have a K&N drop in filter, my truck came with a full K&N FIPK when I first got it. Sold it & bought a stock intake which came with a K&N drop in. Been using it ever since cause free, I never get oil on my MAF.

    What happens is people put too much oil on them & also don't let the oil soak into the filter. It doesn't need a lot, they spray on the oil & install it right away. I let mine sit over night & blow any oil out caught on the screen.


    But they suck for offroad. When I go offroading, I use a stock replacement.

    The block/battery/Terminal install was quick but resizing/replacing the aux ring connections took some time.
