    5.29s are great but damn does the break in period suck. Currently sitting on the side of the road waiting for them to cool off before I can drive again

    lol I just took it after we put the wheels on and I was messing with the headlights. It’s actually in a bay at the Toyota body shop that my dad works at and it was after hours so there wasn’t as much light as normal. But thanks for the tune up! I’ll go get some real pictures once the weather clears up and I can get to a more scenic location lol

    OK, I have been searching for where the turn signal relay is on the 03 DCSB so I can add the new relay that qwells the hyperflash.

    Anyone got a link or diagram or photo?

    It's under the dash, behind (or rather - to the front of the truck) and above the in-cab fuse box. If you turn on the blinker, and reach your hand up in there - above all the bunches of wires that go into the (blue for me) fuse box, you can feel it ticking. You don't even need to remove the lower plastic under the steering wheel, just reach up behind it and you'll find it.

    Pull it out and note the orientation as you do, since you're essentially blind as you install the new one.

    Ok... So I finally got my ass to work.

    I've moved on from Coffee to Mt Dew.




    Timing is going to be crucial on this...

    I only have about 8 Dews on top of the cooler before I get to the 24 pack of Coors Light.

    You can get an open ended wrench on the other side still.

    It swings out to the right. The right side has bolts holding it in and then the left side i used trailer hitch pins for quick way of opening it.

    Isn't your cross member along the bottom covering the bolt that the oem tailgate hinged from? I don't think my question originally was clear.

    Oh gotcha, yea it isn't secured down there. It uses the bolt in the middle and then at the top.

    Oh ok. I saw those. I tried to utilize all 4 threaded points on each side. I'm not sure yet if it's gonna be the long term solution but we will see what happens

    they look awesome. I just put a bronze set on my access cab. I’m loving the wheel but I’m still on the fence on my tire selection.

    Where did you source the "TACOMA" lettering on your tailgate? I assume that is nothing OEM.?
