    How do you like the ride with the pro setup ? I did the same thing but also added the Cornfed 2/1.5 leveling kit. To me it rides like a stock pro

    Yes, not only read a whole bunch of things, but the docs say that I should be able to program some things with that setup.

    We have the Carista also. It will work as a scan tool I believe. One of the options is check for faults. I am sure it is just a basic check. Never had a fault yet. I should pull a fuse & see what it will tell me. The carista is @ my shop or I would go throw it in...
    Anyone use this function yet?

    Not that I have noticed. It snowed last night & I will be washing it tomorrow. I will let you know what I find.
    How would that be normal if it takes an oven to separate the housing? Liarship...

    I also installed the Borla Touring catback, its too quiet for my taste but not for the wifes, so i guess its ok. It does feel "lighter" the truck, is not a racer car but it feels better than stock.

    Also mine is a SR5 2016 and as you can see in the pics the tip is not touching the bumper, which was a concern for many of us.

    So far im happy with it

    Not normal there’s a seal that’s broken on the light someplace if it’s still under warranty take it in and get it replaced, my 2018 doesn’t do that and I wash it in garage in cold weather and everything and never had an issue, I also use my blower to dry it and that does help.. but definitely not normal for those to get moisture in them..

    I agree, It is not normal, however, as for a "sealed" unit, I am not sure. The Blinker is removable so if that seal is cracked etc. water could definitely get in there. I would think as a temp/quick fix you could use a hair dryer on low and blow air into the housing to clear the moisture, try to be somewhere that doesn't have a lot of dust because you will never get it out once it is in. I agree, if it is under warranty, take it in! If not, dry it out and maybe just a little grease on the O-ring around the blinker might help.

    Man to be honest, I cannot tell a huge difference lol. I have a 2017 tacoma trd pro with the fox suspension that I drive everyday, so I have only put a handful of miles on this new set up. I'd say if anything, it just feels a little more stable and less nose dive while braking. I am already thinking of the RCC2.0 rear springs and a toytec front perch spacer lol. I was hoping it wouldve been like one inch taller than it is now. I like the bilsteins a lot so far though!

    Toyota has one, as does locker down. Amazon is your friend... Or the devil.

    Rebuilt an old fobus holster to hold 90% of my pistols and hard mounted it.

    Working on a little project. Should be done in a couple weeks. Stripped all chrome with bleach, cleaned, dried, painted black. Ordered clear lenses to replace the amber lenses for the side markers.
