    So I was looking at Tacomas, and after cramming the babyseat in the back, I wasn't looking at Tacos. Just welcomed a new 2016 Super white (like Portland, eh?) SR5 Crewmax to the family. Looking forward to hearing all of your suggestions for what should go on it next. First some floormats. Then a bedliner (Line-X? Any other suggestions?) Thinking some Clazzio seat covers and upgrading the audio next.....then the offroady bits.

    Somewhat sad to see my G37 go, but was no longer having fun driving the manual around the exurbia portlandia, especially on the gravelly ridiculously loud pavement they use here.

    Anybody know any good trails out here that a full size can fit down?

    Welcome from Rainier
    Not really a trail guy so not much help there.

    I have the factory linex stuff hard on the knees. Some folks brag up the bedrugs pretty good especially those that more or less use their rigs for fun rather than work.

    Congrats on the purchase. For floor mats, I specifically went with Husky Weatherbeaters in the front and WeatherTech digital fit's in the rear of my CrewMax, couldn't be happier with the coverage each offer.

    I haven't done a bedliner yet but I plan to go with Line-X.

    Welcome from CO. Formerly from Drain, Ore. There are lots of old logging roads that a full size truck can handle on the west side. Central/Eastern Oregon have hundreds of miles of decent 4 wheeling trails.

    Welcome, I also came from an Infiniti M45 with a swapped diff from the G37s. Engine replacement at 88k, two driver seats with the built in speakers, along with a bunch of other problems that weren't cheap. The floor mats I have in the Tundra are the all weather from the factory and I'll eventually switch to another brand that will cover up more carpet area. I'm from OR too and I don't know of any long trails that a full size can easily fit through but you can check out Browns Camp in the PDX area, you'll mainly see tacomas and jeeps but there are some places the Tundra can fit through.

    Welcome from NW Arkansas! I am a transplant from Tualatin, OR., really enjoyed the Pacific NW! Always enjoyed cruising down Highway 1 on the coast. Plenty to do and see!

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys! (Don't mean that perjoratively, but, you all seem to be guys. My wife just told me to have fun talking to all my new truckbuddies online, nerds. so, there you go).

    Wow. Exact opposite of my experience. I had 0 problems with my G. However, I think a wheel bearing was on the way out. Needed new tires and brakes. And a much needed detailing job. And....more room. (my wife said do the broccoli so here you go :broccoli: and the weiner :dancingbacon:) My friend back home got the modding bug with the Infiniti, but I was content with it stock (only did the clutch pedal spring mod).

    Interesting, I was going to ask which was better, the Husky or Weathertech. Any reason you went with one up front and one in the rear?

    And for bedliners, anybody know much about Bulletliner? Seems to be the guy who founded Line-X.

    I grew up in Vermont and spend most of my spare time driving 2WD cars down the many dirt roads we had, in summer, winter, and mud seasons. I know what a big difference tires make on the experience (summer tires in the winter, most scary experience i have ever had, almost wrecked my new G at the time). Would love to find some trails that I could never have done in my car. My old civic conquered Molly Stark 'road' in southern VT, which was more of a truck job IMO, in retrospect. Interested in seeing what I could fit down at Brown's Camp. One of my co-workers is a member of the jeep club around here and maintains those trails, so I'll probably consult him first.

    Time to go listen to Mountain Jam (site of my bachelor party) on my free SiriusXM trial :headbang:

    I have Line-X in mine but have read good reports on Bullet Proof as well. Don't think you could go wrong with either. Not sure about price differential at this time but seem to recall that Bullet Proof was giving some decent discounts a while back. I have WeatherTech mats front and rear and the only issue I have is the front passenger mat has a tendency to slide around since it isn't anchored down like the driver side. Some folks place some velcro strips on the bottom of the mat to correct that. I've heard a lot of good reports on the Husky's and would probably go that way if I had it to do over again. I also have the rear sway bar installed and like mine.

    Quite the paradigm shift? FWIW, The Line-X and Bulletliner folks here are both down in Tualitin.

    Great! You should be able to do some price comparisons and get a great product. Yeah, we moved to Arkansas (the wife and I grew up in Hot Springs) due to a job change. Went to work in Oregon when I left the Army. Loved Oregon, with all there is to do there, but have a fondness for Arkansas as well. Good luck with your mods!

    I have the Husky Xact fit and they're awesome. And I have LineX on my truck bed. It's good stuff.

    Welcome from eastern CO! I have the WeatherTech's in mine, am going to change the fronts over the Husky's sometime down the road. They're not bad, I just hate how they don't trap debris and water in place. Still need to do the bedliner, am trying to decide if I should just Rhino line it somewhere local or take it up to Denver to a Line-X dealer.

    My (very basic) understanding is that the Line-X goes on hot, resulting in a more uniform and instantly cured liner. The Rhino is less uniform and can be more 'runny'. Or at least this is what the internet has told me.

    They are now installed. Got the ones that go under the rear seats to protect from the Baby a little more.

    The rear sides are bent a little upward from shipping. Hopefully the heat in the daytime and the doors on them helps tamp them down.
