    I have a 2022 silver SR5 and

    1) I have not located a cigarette lighter yet, wondering if it exists for my current cords.
    2) is craigslist and ebay my only hope of buying a platinum grille and has anyone tried swapping this grill with the SR5 Grille?
    3) Has anyone removed their plastic tailgate protector while leaving the bedcap?
    4) If I buy the black 20" trd rims on craigslist and they don't come with tpms will my existing 18" alloy wheels tpms be compatible with those TRD wheels? I did this on a 2nd gen and the SR steel wheels TPMS was not compatible with the SR5 alloy wheels.
    5) I'm ordering NFAB running boards in 3 weeks when the podium steps are available if interested in pics
    6) considering diamondback black textured tonneau cover...thoughts?
    7) any good solutions for protecting the perforated softex with kids? That white underlayment below must get trashed quickly
    8) I'm almost to 700 miles, the turbo waste gate issue is hopefully no longer a concern, any instances of later issues beyond the 600 mile mark?
    9) I have a rear seat 120v outlet but not usb, just blanks. Is there a factory plug in module to add these USB ports?
    10) are the black badge overlays legit long term options? I assume they go over existing chrome badging

    1.) There is one above your screen in the little tray, otherwise you are going to need to upgrade your wires to usb and usb-c in the console.
    2.) Some platinums around here have gone to TRD pro grilles, and may be interested in selling. Worth asking around
    3.) idk
    4.) Your TPMS sensors can be swapped to the new wheels at a tire shop easily enough
    5.) do it to it
    6.) Check the tonneau covers thread, I believe a few have been posted in there.
    7.) idk
    8.) I don't think it was necessarily a low mileage issue, you aren't out of the woods yet. However, I also believe the issue isn't as widespread as the forum would make it seem. Tens of thousands of other trucks never had the issue. Just keep enjoying the truck.
    9.) There is a post around here of somebody adding those, but it looked to involve some soldering and such. Nothing I saw that was plug and play. Might I suggest something like this instead?
    10.) idk

    #10 - plastidip them badges! Looks awesome and easy/cheap to do. Can always reverse if you don’t like it. I’ve had on for 6 months and look good.

    Also plastidip’d my chrome mirror covers and plan to do the silver and chrome parts of my grille. Mirror covers have done well even going through the Costco car wash every week or so.

    Search for plastidip in my threads or in general in the forum.
