    So I've drooled over tacomas since I learned how to drive. Always bought m own cars, so this meant I was rolling around in POS Chevy & fords..
    But two months ago, I graduated with a bachelors and said F it. Done starving & playing WHERE'S THE OIL LEAKING FROM THIS TIME

    and bought my other girlfriend
    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1363241095.487521.jpg
    2013 4x4 double cab. Told the dealer if I won't buy a truck with those blanks where a switch for something shoulda been, but settled to live without seat heaters.

    More pics to come, but here's my super clean sPOD install! I love it! And it only took me about two hours.

    John made me this switch from scratch! Way cleaner than those rocker switches, plus I only have two blanks where the seat heaters are supposed to go- didn't want to cut a big ass hole in my dash for four ugly switches.

    when working on a three month old 30k truck,
    MEASURE FOUR TIMES
    CUT ONCE
    not like I did.
    I only measured three times and it hit my gear shifter hardware when I set it in.
    Luckily I had the foresight to make this hole as small as possible first and left room for error. I measured three times, cut five times little by little.
    Eh.
    Not too shabby I say

    This is the pod
    http://www.4x4spod.com/category_s/52.htm

    Just a relay panel that comes with a switch setup that you run in the cab- otherwise, you're running a new wire run into the cab & trying to find a new spot for it to mount each time.

    & I'm still lost dude what

    is a rugged trails,

    Why is it bad
    And how do I get rid of it?

    OH!
    really you don't like em? They haven't let me down at all long as I don't have them over inflated - they say they need 30 psi max

    I've had em wrap around rocks when I crawled over them pretty damn well. And I had to haul about a thousand pounds up a fire road the other day & they handled great for me.
    Why don't ya like em?
    & what should I go from here?

    I have noticed they rub a bit without a lift ...
