    Somebody asked me to post the light output with my HIDs. This is a picture going down my hunting camp road.

    Make sure you do something to keep it on there... I have lost two of those on the road (at least I think they flew off on the road, I know that other Toyota owners would not dream of stealing them)

    Did yours have 3 inch screws on the back? I wouldn't think it would fall off, but if your did let me know and I'll add some 3m behind. Had to modify it a little bit anyways since my grille is about half the thickness then the stock so I couldn't get a good a good install.

    I just put a little hole in one of the sides and hooked a little bungee on it and pull the other end through and hook it to the back of the hitch. RTV is probably better/easier

    Noticed some chips on top of my rear bumper from my 100lb doofus of a dog getting in and out.

    Got some 3M skateboard tape to put on it. Couldn't do a single strip across due to the slight contour, so used two separate strips. It works. I guess I'll find out how well it holds up over time.

    You can get 5” x 36” (or similar) strips of 3M paint protection film for cheap on Amazon. Off-brands are even cheaper. That’d be a good way to go on that edge. Trim to the size you need.

    So far so good. Gate traffic coming on post was horrible so I went around down a back gravel road to a different gate. No sliding on the wet bumpy road, would have been all over the place with the stock tires. I think I do have a little bit of rub in full lock in reverse. Heard something backing out of the driveway. Not too concerned, still have the mud flaps on so I'm sure its just rubbing on there somewhere.

    Mine are stock size and rub when braking and turning tight. My wheel offset is -6, though

    Try heating the mud-flap with a heat gun and pressing it in with a baseball bat, or some other blunt object. I keep meaning to do this with mine.

    KO2's have a reputation for being bad in wet conditions, but I haven't had problems. I drive slow in the rain, though.

    I've had 2 sets of KOs and 2 sets of KO2s on my previous 2 tacomas and never had a problem in the rain. Got over 60k miles per set.

    I think my son still has some sidewalk chalk, going to rub that along the inside of the tire and see where the rub is. I think its along the mud flap where it gets a little thicker.

    That's good to know. I was a little concerned with the life of the tire

    Not sure on a 4runner, haven't put a set on it yet, but all of them on the tacomas were over 60k, probably hit 70k on a set. All of those were E load rated.
    I've had them in Florida with downpour rain, and in Washington state with constant drizzle and occasional snow, and didn't have an issue with wet weather performance. When its time for tires on the 4runner, I'll be going w KO2 in a C load rating.

    I located the older type without the Red Letters and it’s on it’s way. A bit pricey but this will do for now.
    It was one of two in the southeast region that’s still available.
