    That's for sure. Last week I was at a TH with parking for about six vehicles. A Gladiator was too long to park parallel to the others, so it parked perpendicular across three spaces, taking up half the lot.

    You have no excuse to not go there tomorrow, one obstacle was pretty challenging, I had to use my locker. And we both got stuck on a loose wet section, and our lockers didn't help, so we had to back off.

    Found Hikari Ultra LED headlight bulbs on clearance, got a set in 9005 size for my high beams. Had to snip the latch nub on the electrical connector to reverse the polarity when plugging into the vehicle harness - extra 30 sec with a flush cutter.

    I'm hearing some rumbling noise from under the truck when I reverse, could it be one of the many stupid skid plates?

    After a year of buyer's remorse of not having a volume button, I broke down and installed the Kenwood DMX1057XR stereo. It is head and shoulders above the Alpine ILX-507 in sound quality! Highly recommend.

    Those vents work at all?

    How do you like it? Any negatives?

    *UPDATE to my stoopid clip problem and a mod installation

    I've learned to hate them as well!

    I managed to pull six while partially destroying two (still reusable though) using a narrow bladed cutting dyke. Was able to get the jaws between the 'top hat' and plastic trim and got lucky enough to have the jaws on those two prongs on the diagonal to the square section and pinched them just enough to be able to lever the clips out.

    Also, after spending maybe close to a good couple of hours on the Toyota Parts website I found the actual name of these stooped clips, they are called "Screw Grommet" p/n 90189-06013.

    So, here's a hint as how these should be used based upon the actual physical design and name...they shouldn't be used as a retainer themselves but pressed into place first, plastic panel over and a flanged screw driven into the grommet, just like how a wall hanger works! I'm going to the hardware store tomorrow to pick up some M5 sheet metal screws in SS and some flat fender washers and give this thought a try...pretty sure it will work and no more clip struggles when I get around to doing a bumper mod in the future.

    For now I got my first (of three) immediate mod done. Washer Fluid relocation tank kit by Snowbound Customs. I should start a build thread...

    [Edit: moved the contents of the fluid tank install to my build thread, here.]

    Great! Boy am I glad to know that I am not the only one who is crazy! Cameras very often flatten the image and do not show the perspective over the longer distance. Awesome ride!
