    Yes they are, everyone loves the looks of them. I don't plan on selling my Trail wheels as they are better for my use. I don't need to look good to feel good, I just need reliability. An I feel the Trail rims look great anyways.

    By "better for off road" do you only mean 7.5 width is better for mounting offroad tires, or something more?

    Oh, sorry, you supplied that information somewhere already: "The Trail rims have significantly more material around the bead area and will resist impacts/rocks better. They have a protected valve stem - that's critical for anyone who wants to play in the rocks and really makes the TRD Pro wheels a non-starter for that type of use. And the Trail wheels are wider - meaning they can fit a larger tire."

    You get more options for tire size. As he mentioned in the other thread, the build of the rim as well as the protected valve stem on the OR wheels

    Finally got the chance to finish my radio install (Yaesu 8900r); since we did a last minute random day trip up north to hit some trails yesterday. Radio itself is mounted under the driver seat, with the face remote mounted onto a pro clip dash mount. Antenna cable was ran under the rear carpet, then into the door sill trim along the driver side rear/front, then to underneath the seat; power wire ran through the firewall, then along the driver side door sill trim to underneath the seat. Ran the cable for the remote mount face along the console, then up through the center dash behind the radio. I'm still not 100% sure what I'm going to do with the mic yet... for now, it's just sitting in the cup holder. Not quite enough real estate left on the pro clip to mount it beneath... but perhaps one of those retractable gear keeper holders might work.

    That looks phenomenal. Do the fender flares all detach individually? Or was the vinyl installed right on to the vehicle?

    On mine, it was installed right on the vehicle. (Was told the clips that hold the flares on can be very fragile)

    I installed it right in to the vehicle. It was a pain to took a couple practice runs, but I managed to get it done. It's not perfect but I believe for my first time doing vinyl wrap it's not bad.

    That open space is by design to improve crash test results.

    It was from Areyourshop on Amazon - there might be better options out there though. The letter locating holes were kind of too big, left too much wiggle room. I ended up laying down some painters tape to mark their position, then I removed the tape backing and also added a dab of epoxy to help secure them (wasn't sure about how well the tape alone would hold up).
