    nice! It’s not that bad as long as you got help. I recommend a laser leveler for doing the cut. Makes life easier

    The trouble with using a laser level, or even a vial level is you need to have a level spot to park on, and then you need to make sure the vehicle is level. I would pick some points to measure from, like maybe the tail lights and use blue tape to mark your cut lines, that way level or not you will be good to go. But hey that’s just my opinion.

    all you have to do is check your lines with a measuring tape. It’s rarely an issue. Not that he needs one for this bumper, after all.

    PPF the front end including headlights then ceramic coat. Dark colored vehicle tend to show more damages to road debris.

    Okay - so I took delivery today of my ‘22 Lunar Rock ORP, and while re-installing all of the cargo components from my last T4R (Rago Molle Panels, BPF Barrier, Canvasback Liners,) and upgrading to LED reverse lights, and tail-as-turn signals, I noticed that my tail light casings have gaps in them. I’m not super familiar with how these are made, but this looks like they’ll leak. Thoughts?442C9E33-C747-4FE0-AC81-539BF5544030.jpgC9786D04-A5AD-4D97-B955-F9BDB6DC1394.jpg47FC4C81-1640-465A-9C0D-884A01FF30EE.jpg740D01FC-C9B1-4916-A82D-85EA8B316442.jpg

    Take it back to the dealer you purchased it from; ask the service department to take a look at it and see if they can resolve the issue. By doing this you get it on record of the issue and a printed receipt so if they do leak within a year at least you can get them (Toyota) to replace both of them. Just doesn’t look like the taillight housings were seated correctly from the factory. Good Luck!

    Ordered the little windshield sticker that was posted up here and drove to work looking at my tpms light. Seriously this is the most sensitive tpms system i have ever dealt with, is there a way to change the values of when it comes on? its cold at night so in the morning i'm 2psi off by the afternoon i'm back to normal, I'm so tired of seeing the tpms light and messages.

    What pressure are you running? Im at 34-38 depending in winter temp swings and if they’re warmed up, and it hasnt tripped off the warning for this. The system probably triggers on differential pressure as well.

    that's normal you are seeing fitment to the trim no separation of the taillight.

    I'm running stock size general grabber ATX at the factory 32psi. I chalk tested then at that psi and they were good but if they drop to 31 it triggers the system. It's ridiculous, I guess I'll just bump them up to 34 and see what that does.

    pretty sure my tires dropped down to 28 or 29 psi early winter when the temps first crashed. didn't trigger the tpms warning. went and filled them +2 psi (34 i think) to account for further drop in temps. i should check to see where they're at now that we're almost mid-winter.

    Mine is a 21' with the new style sensors so they might be more sensitive then your 18'. I really wish they wouldn't trigger until like a 5psi drop like my 2012 Tacoma.

    oh yeah, i forgot about that.

    i'm not a fan of tpms sensors. my 2016 CX5 measured rotational speed and compared the tires against each other. that way you didn't need to have individual sensors in each tire. of course, that meant you couldn't get readings for each tire, and the system just tripped when one or more of the tires crossed some unknown rotational variance.

    mine is a 2021 and my sensors don't trigger until 25psi. I bet this is something you can have changed.

    That would be an optimal setting and would alleviate it going off for temperature swings.. Mine must be set at a 2psi threshold, I'm gonna have to look into how to set the parameters.

    Yes, the Del Sur Ridge is a good beginner trail. Some of the parallel offshoots are intermediate but if you stay on the main road it is just a fire road with big ruts and rock debris from rain damage. After a good rain there will be some good size mud holes. If you are looking for a good beginner trail, Sierra Pelona, is also a nice fire road drive. This site has some way points for Gaia. https://funtreks.com/off-road-trails/sierra-pelona-ridgerowher-ohv/

    All the other trails at Rohwer Flats (Lookout and Rohwer Trail) are advanced and see many crashes.
