    Let us know how you route the red wire that goes to your battery once ya install por favor, the install video completely skips that part and can't seem to find any good info on how to do it.

    There should be a couple fuses that are 12v constant in the interior kick panel fuse box, but I've never checked with a multimeter. An add-a-fuse would make that a simple thing to tie into, if you could find a power source there.

    Yes they are the OEM TRD Pro blacked out headlights. Hopefully NOT part of the recent recall! They are nice…you can’t have these, they’re spoken for :D

    I think the recall was just for the halogen lights, not the LED.

    Out of $15K in mods to my 2014 SR5 DC;
    The TRD shift knob is a top favorite..
    I've bought 2 of them, first a sliver, then a black when I blacked the dash out..
    You can find cheap aftermarket on Amazon.
    But I like the TOYOTA OEM parts..

    I guess I should add the AJT dash parts...

    Lmfao. I meant rear sway. Stupid auto correct. And yes it is. I’ve used one on every vehicle of mine with or without a supercharger.

    Damn, you really had me going for awhile, I was trying to think what toyota could have done to the seat in the TRD's and why I hadn't heard of it yet. I'll have to look around the site and see if anyone has a write up on adding the oil catcher. If it's not a huge job I may get it done with my next oil change.

    I would suggest against this and only run it directly to the battery or a accessory fuse block. There is a reason the folks who made it suggest going straight to the battery and not tapping in.
    I don’t know the reason for sure but I know a lot of window motors pull a lot of power so it is likely much safer having dedicated power instead of tying into another circuit that could be damaged.

    It’s a single wire and simple to run, fish it through your door to cab grommet (this is the hardest part as it’s a tight squeeze to work in there especially when you are fat like me).
    That will come out your drivers footwell kick panel. Just a little bit above that in the firewall there is a pass through grommet to the engine. That is on the battery side so just run it to the battery in the engine bay.

    And yes the 3WLiners module is probably one of the most useful mods out there.
    Being able to roll the windows down from the remote is great when it is 95 degrees outside. Let’s a huge amount of heat out before getting in.

    Valid point - I didn't think about the current being pulled, just saw what looked like a pretty small gauge wire. If I ever get around to this mod I'll poke around a bit, but you're probably right that it's best to run to the battery/engine fuse block.

    Not a huge job but some question it’s purpose. I have had one in both S/C and non. On the non S/C it caught some. The tundra does come with a factory style oil catch can already actually.

    Question about this, how strong is it? I’ve heard very good, and very bad things after install.

    My mods (DON’T ADD THEM UP)!
    AJT all the way, I didn’t buy anything requiring dash removal
    ESP under seat storage
    Dash cam hard wired
    Console organizer is a must
    Gun magnet by knee
    Leveling kit, it was only $50, install will cost you more
    Blackout covers for emblems, they were cheap and I’m deciding which to just remove completely
    TRD rear sway bar is a must IMHO

    Vague but helpful. I'm not sure I want to risk damaging the A post or the air bag hauling my old ass in.

    Check the build link in my signature.
    It’s exactly the same grab handle that was in all the 2007-2013 trucks for millions of collective miles pulling up thousands of other old asses. Don’t sweat it

    ETA: and the A-pillar frame is exactly the same so no worries there.

    I will also add, I have applied the crappy black liner along the door edges because I have small monster boys that I assisted in reproducing. Apparently opening the doors like a SWAT officer is the only way to get out of the truck..

    This is how much I've caught in the past 15k miles. I'm running a dual kit (pcv and crankcase) although the crankcase can has been bone dry since the install. This is all from the pcv catch can.
