    Black overlays. Black tailpipe.
    I attempted to install my TRD skid plate, but the back two bolts did not go in all the way. A couple of YouTube videos suggest using a tap, but one mentioned a 8mm and another a 10mm. I have a 2020 ORP. Any guidance on which I should purchase?

    Finished up installing a urd mid pipe (i got it on sale a few months back). It was a totally pain in the ass to install due to the studs that come off the headers/exhaust manifolds. The y pipe removes the rear two catalytic converters which could be an issue for your state laws. I already had the trd exhaust now the is sound deeper and rumbles more. I love it. Also seems to improve power in the mid range rpms(2000-4000rpm).

    Taps will work great. I would recommend considering a thread chaser as an option. You can buy a set relatively cheap and they work great for the intended purpose, which is not to cut new threads but to clean up old ones. Using a chaser should lessen the chance of creating larger thread tolerances.

    Dealt with one of the few 4R flaws, that annoying rear hatch garnish rust.
    Two 21x1.5mm neoprene washers on the side bolts gives enough stand off.
    Broke the top center clip of the garnish, which I just cannot see how one would avoid....it's in there tight. Some silicone glue on the broken tabs...good to go.
    Both sides had wear to the metal.
    A little light sanding stick, some Dr Color chip layers and then a bit of ceramic coat should stop the rust in its tracks.
    Not a perfect repair, but it looks just fine since it is a tool and not a show car.

    Pretty much what the bodyshop did to fix the same issue I had on mine after they fixed the paint, no issues since. If you have a hood scoop check around the edges of it too. The scoop was rubbing the paint off there.

    It took 18 days from placing order to receiving.
    I ordered a set of CR cat guards on Jan 31, haven’t heard a peep.

    It is the cheapest mod. And don't worry about your gas mileage, it will not affect it at all. Go for it.

    Installed Diode Dynamics DD6738 SS3 fog lights:

    Installation following Diode Dynamics' video was fairly straightforward. Only hiccup on my 14 year-old vehicle was the rusted screw holding each OEM fog light in the bumper cover. I could feel the philips screwdriver starting to strip, so I finished the job with a Vessel JIS bit. The JIS bit gave a very noticeable improvement in grip.

    Just looked and I have rust at both ends and on the door sill protector. Would it be covered under my CPO warranty or should I just do it myself?

    If you can get the CPO warranty to cover it, may as well try. Worst they can say is no and then you're giving it yourself anyways.

    After being on there for 3 years, peeled the PlastiDip off, as it was peeling off. While it is a simple application, and I thought it looked good, I am not sure I want to do it again. Maybe.

    Put some slightly taller rear springs on and went to test them out today. Worked flawlessly.

    @bronzestar1
    I decided you were right, one of my zombie lights should be lighting up the cargo basket itself..genius.

    I started mad scientist work today on an adjustable mounting arm, made from painted 3/4in steel round bar with rubber caps.
    Offroad light bolted on at the top with ss hardware.
    I'm fastening the arm parallel off the 1" rack bar, it pivots on a 5/16 ss hinge bolt + rubber washers.
    Hoping I simply loosen bolt then swing the thing upright, lock in place with its wing nut & lock washer.
    Still fabricating bracing, and "holder" for its down rest position!
