    Thanks for the post. I never knew that Detours of Maine existed. Looks as good or better than a Wilco and a little cheaper, no?

    They are definitely tempting my wallet, the knuckle bone at 20lbs has me seriously considering it. The only other viable option I've seen is what Sam @LTDSC did to his 4th gen, welding one to his frame under the bumper cover. Nice and tight against the hatch, very clean look, and it has to be more of a solid install, Very Slick.

    I got this to put power to the light for the lisense plate. I believe it will do a good job. I will use some zip ties and dielectric grease on the connector plug to waterproof and hold in place. Also just ordered SSO offroad Backup camera relocate kit ($49.99). I think I will order the Baja Ladder off of Amazon,when I get the money, I like how they offset the rails.

    Appt. @ 1:15 for 10k Toyota care. I have NEVER ever used Dealership for anything other than purchase & a warranty item if needed. I also never ever buy ANY kind of extended warranty on anything BUT I did for this because I just may keep it for more than 85-95k miles. I always trade before 100k mi. Just me being anal, that is just around 4 yrs for me. Never find work close to home.

    I also did the extended warranty and for some reason I always get a bad feeling about doing so....but with 5 computers on the 4 and stories of how the $800 a piece window regulators sometimes go out, it may have been a good thing. Time will tell.

    Was not bad experience as far as time wise. I did pull into parking lot afterwards & checked oil level. Heard nightmare stories when I owned FJC's of dealerships NOT adding oil at oil change & people driving away only to have oil light come on & they find out NOTHING on dip stick. Drive back & service manager tells them "It's happen'ed before Nothing to worry about" F&$K that HOW much damage was done Metal to metal bearings W/NO lubrication on a fairly NEW engine!!!

    Nice looking ride! What size are those tires and what is the offset of your rims?

    So I did this super cool mod that I've never seen anyone else do. I think it might catch on.

    I wasn’t aware the 5th gen had a start up screen, I used it on my 3rd gen taco, is it done the same way? Thank you for helping me with my laziness and not looking myself. ;)

    So I was under the impression that a negative offset causes your tires to stick out more, but yours is a positive offset and they look like they are peaking out past your fender well quite a bit. Do I have that backwards?

    I have no idea if it's done the same way...but it's super easy to figure out by just playing around in the settings.
