    Welcome pard! AZ here. For a truck that isn't Super White, that one looks really nice!
    What other mods have you got planned?

    Not really much planned--yet. I have a tundra bed mat coming on Monday. Need to line-x the bed. Consider in cover for back end or locking storage.

    Mine's a daily driver that I plan to use to pull my pontoon (6,000 lbs with trailer) in/out of the lake and to boat store for service. Went for comfort over the off-road setup--I put 20k miles a year on a car. A good seat and a good stereo help. Really missing the storage I had with my Honda Ridgeline--it was an ugly vehicle, but the trunk in bed was great place to keep jumper cables, tie downs and tools. Under seat storage was also more usable. Ridgeline V6 and brakes not safe with a heavy trailer.

    I have a 2016 Tacoma TRD OR (my son has commandeered) and it has a lot more behind and under seat storage. Crewmax is huge, but it's hard to hide stuff. Looking for a good organizer to cut down on clutter.

    I saw that. A little intimidating to cut into a brand new floor--Maybe after a few scratches. Wish that came as an installed option. I'm better with bolt-on, reversible mods.

    I'm not speaking from experience, because mine is a DC but there are many write ups about the install of these and I'm pretty sure it's not very difficult.
    Do a little research and maybe you will feel better about trying it.

    You're right, it is intimidating to cut the floor down to the metal, but it's a fear worth getting over. Take your time, measure twice and cut once. You won't regret it.
