    @Hammerdog Did the shift knob and boot.

    It’s really easy.

    Remove shift knob

    Remove panel around shifter (it’s one piece including the little business card holder. Pop the back clips first then the front ones.)

    Add new shift boot.

    Massage it down over the shifter box and make sure it’s sitting well with enough “slack” to hit all the gears freely.

    Snap panel back over it. This will hold the boot in place.

    The knob I bought didn’t attach to the boot. My solution was to trim the plastic connector away from the bottom of the knob and use a little hot glue to attach the boot ring to the bottom of the knob.

    Can’t tell there was glue involved and it’s easy enough to break away if I want to change the knob or boot in the future.

    I like the pics of the blacked out inside panels. Haven't done it yet, but thought about it plenty of times.

    Nice job OP!

    iirc, most of my interior mods:
    - LED’s including DIY LED footwells
    - Husky liners
    - front/rear dashcams
    - leather Taco wheel
    - Tesla style HU
    - blacked everything out by painting
    - leather/padding center arm rest
    - Katzkin seats
    - new speakers/sub and soundproofing
    - driver’s grab bar

    I’m pretty happy with the interior

    I like your matte. I went with the Gloss above to match the Gloss black around my HU but since you went Tesla that is irrelevant for you. Looks good. I'm not sure if you got as impatient as I did but good grief that process takes forever to do it right. Such much sitting around and waiting even with a heat gun.

    The blue is simply because I'm a CATS fan and had to implement something for them. Very well may go back to black when I put in the switch pro trim piece since I'm a Platinum and need the whole piece.

    I had to prepare an order with AJT Design tonight for some bits and pieces. It looks like I missed their sale by a few weeks. Oh well, they still make some awesome parts.

    Apologies for the lack of research, searched through a fair amount of muck, so I reached the point of just asking.
    The LEDs for the Dome/Vanity/Maps, is there a list on here? I saw the link for the upgrade package, but $74 for LEDs is crazy..I think..thanks

    Haha. Literally just eBay’d tundra interior LED prior to you sending this. It’s good to feel dumb from time to time. Thx

    you would be shocked how many people give these bs companies their money for something they are having drop shipped from the same place or have bought in wholesale from ebay.

    I really dont understand why all the big 3 have a driver's side grab handle but not Tundra and you dont have to be under 6' for it to be handy. You just need to hate step bars like myself. I sent Toyota an email on it and never got a straight answer.

    Thankfully there are guys like Roman who are happy to sell these parts to us. It was easy to install, and didn't cost a lot. But still, my 2010 had one while my 2018 didn't. Not cool, Toyota.

    The shift boot was probably the easiest mod I've done to the truck. It really was about 2 minutes to install and trim to fit.
    It's also one of the first things someone comments on when they're in my truck.
