    Nice. I have the Hottails conversion and my signal mirrors but have been wondering if there was any other eye catching signal ideas to add.

    Ha! I have been having that very same thought.

    Above was my solution.

    Also, a pretty simple solution, get the harnesses plugged in, drill a hole on each side of the center bumper and pop some pods in. Maybe, one or two more steps, but don't imagine it will take that long.

    Edit: the rear courtesy light will be a cabin VLED Y splitter, then running the extension all the way to the rear.

    Mine goes in on Wednesday for a NH Oil frame coat. My buddy had his Taco frame replaced under warranty a year ago, and then had it coated, and the coating still looks new a year later after a New England winter.

    Not enough....
    Yeah that is good stuff too. My old 2001 Tundra had its frame replaced, and I very much regret not doing some type of oil undercoating on that truck. She was in rough shape when I sold her. The frame was still good, but the body was going due to PA winters. So as soon as I picked up this truck I got it treated. Going on 4 years later it's the best money I spend all year to get it coated. it makes the truck messy to work on, but it's worth it!

    I did mine with the seats out while I was already in there putting in sound deadener and my sub box. Made it much easier. Not sure if it can be done with the seats in. There's so many damn straps lol!!

    I didn’t fully remove the back seats but I did remove the bolts to slide forward which helps with straps.

    Got some things done the last few days, I'll do separate posts..
    I finally got around to replacing my broken antenna bushing and bent antenna base.
    I think the dealership ran it thru their car wash without removing the antenna after they had it for 8 months.

    I started on it Tuesday.
    Pulled the pocket flare and noticed the grommets that hold the fender skirt in fell apart when I tried to remove them.
    So I ordered 20 of them on Amazon to do it on Thursday.

    Amazon.com: Rexka 20pcs Fender Liner Screw Grommet Compatible with Toyota Lexus 90189-06236 Highlander Prius Tundra LC500 RC200t RC300 RC350 : Automotive

    Only to find out I only had to remove 2 to get access to the antenna bolt.
    But I replaced a few others that were loose.

    I bought a new antenna as well.
    It is about an inch taller than the truck and I use it in underground parking lots as a feeler gauge.
    I slowly creep under low-hanging stuff and it hits I get out and look.

    Wow thanks for this. I stupidly took my truck to a dealer while on a road trip for just an oil change and they gave me a complimentary wash even though I asked them not to. :mad:

    Replaced the door check Monday.
    I'm kinda glad I did order the OEM part even though it was $85..
    If it would have been any other door than the driver's door, I might have gone cheaper aftermarket.
    That creaking and popping every time I opened the door was getting on my nerves.

    Had to pull the door panel and take the speaker adapter and speaker out.
    That gave me a chance to finally take some pics of my taco-tunes speaker adapters.
    That would be the ONLY thing I would buy from them.

    Note to self:
    1. raise the window before you take the panel off to give yourself more wiggle room.
    2. the speaker hole edges are very sharp.


    It was simple; loosen the bolts, pull it out, stick the new one in, replace the bolts, put the speaker in, and the door panel back on.
    I put blue Loctite on the single bolt, it had some on it from the factory.

    I didn't take a bunch of pics, there isn't much to it.

    This is for the rear door, but you get the idea..:D

    The caption on that video is deceiving. With 300k miles on my 2008, I never once had an issue with that part.

    Since I had an order from Sparks for the stuff above, I bought another OEM fuse puller.
    I dropped mine down in the fuse box and couldn't find anything to fit in that spot.
    Even though I keep needle-nosed pliers and spare fuses in the swingcase, I still like having the OEM stuff.:rolleyes:

    Well maybe, but with over 106K views and 113 comments, it seems some people are having issues with it.
    I guess you can consider yourself blessed..:cool:

    My truck has stayed parked outside 24/7 for the last 8 years in 100°+ Texas summers.
    I'm sure that weakens that rubber part, as well as having someone hit the mast so hard it bent the threaded shaft.
    When that rubber initially cracked, it just fell apart. .:eek2:

    The Texas sun certainly takes a toll on rubber and plastic.
    My windshield cowl looks awful and bugs me when I look at it...:(
    I might pull it and paint it, since it would cost over $350 to replace.

    Yeah - we don’t get the sun beatings like you guys do.

    Headlight restoration on the original 2018 lights. They and the Toyota emblem were getting very oxidized so I figured I would try the 20 dollar Cerakote kit before other option. Wow it worked great for the price point and was easy to install.

    I got my front driver and passenger window tinted today. I like it. :thumbsup: I tried to do it myself and screwed it up. :mad: Sometimes you just gotta take it to someone with experience to have it done right. Then went deer hunting. No deer. :notsure:67E96FC9-517C-4337-92C6-59565506B0DF.jpg

    Too many mods to come
    I can confirm a supercharged 5.7 is faster than a new turbo tundra with exhaust. Lol
