    It’s been a while but I’m pretty sure I disconnected the battery and then there are connectors on the seats that unplug for removal.

    It seems like with IFS the more you build for off road, the better it gets on road. Solid axle gets worse.

    Blacked out badges, window deflectors, smoked 3rd brake light. I have a Borla muffler on order as well as some color matched engine cover stickers. I'll be painting the stock wheels soon as well. Falken tires in the fall as well.
    So I bought this:
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0748QWY99?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_dt_b_product_details
    And installed it today. I cut a 3" strip and put it in the center, avoiding the "bends" at the end of the bumper and it overlaps onto the face of the bumper only about 1/2 inch. I'm not too good with this kind of thing so I wanted to avoid trying to get it not to wrinkle around the slight bends. It's hard to see in the pic but it came out pretty good. I was sick of all the scratches and gouges in the bumper whenever I or someone else even touched it lightly with a cooler or something. Toyota should have continued the black part to cover more of the bumper but this should do it.DSCN5506.jpg

    There's a group of harnesses that need to be unplugged under the seat. It's easy. Just take your time.

    MAKE SURE YOUR BATTERY NEGATIVE TERMINAL IS DISCONNECTED BEFORE REMOVING ANY HARNESSES.

    The yellow ones are the air bag sensors and you don't want your vehicle throwing a code.

    I only removed the passenger seat, but it was 3 separate harnesses in a bundle. And 4 bolts, 14mm I believe. The plastic end caps that cover the bolts pop right off. I have a dash trim kit but didn't even need it for them.

    If you're installing an amp for the first time, watch some videos on how to properly set the amp gain. It's not a volume control, you can use a cheap DMM to help. Let's say your amp is 1000rms at 1 ohm, and your subs are wired to 1 ohm... Take 1000 times 1, and square that. You'll get about 31 volts... Play a 40-50 Hertz constant test tone and test AC voltage on speaker terminal outputs on the amp, slowly adjust amp gain until you get to that voltage. Make sure all bass boost are off. The more pre output voltage the headunit or LOC you are using has, the less the gain will be turned up. More than this and you can clip, which can burn up equipment. This is a very shortened explanation, and there's other ways of doing it with different equipment and distortion detectors, but this is an easy way. Watch a few videos, it'll explain it better.



    On another note... I switched out the 500rms amp under the seat for a 1000rms sundown audio amp. I had both amps... But wanted to try the 500 first. Nothing wrong with the 500, but the subs could handle more so I gave them more.

    Finally got all of my leather seat covers installed. It's easier to install them when its warm/hot but that also sucks because I damn near had a heat stroke putting them in. Truth, the install was not hard and if you didn't know that they were covers, you wouldn't be able to tell. A friend of mine has them in his TRD Pro Tacoma......had no idea, til he told me. So, $500 later, I have leather seats. Judge for yourself.

    Did an oil change, broke a bolt, then broke a drill bit in the bolt, fun oil change.

    Then put on a bug deflector. I like it a lot. Then spilled two gallons of oil all over the garage and ruined my favorite pairs of shoes.

    Yup, best oil change ever, but hey, I really like my bug deflector.

    That sounds a LOT like some of my recent projects, I'm sorry to hear about the shoes especially! I just went to put on my favorite summer shoes this morning, and discovered that the litter of kittens we recently adopted have been using them as buttwipes. They're suede...

    Oh, and I love my deflector, too! What kind did you get?
