    Not sure at this point.
    Actually, found out that the factory shims aren’t supposed to be used and to use whatever shims that came on those pads…

    I need to look at the center console and see if I can just get the rear window switch to pop into a hole I make in the console. I have not seen any single gang switch mount so I figured I better do something since I cannot roll my window down now. LOL

    Finished installing all the rotors, pads, and lines. Break in was 60>10 about 8-9 times before trac off started beeping. Went away a couple minutes later.

    The rotors look pretty even throughout.IMG_5564.jpg IMG_5565.jpg IMG_5566.jpgIMG_5567.jpg

    My OE rotors were shot at about 30k, but the shuddering wasn’t too bad until recently. Seemed to have gotten my use out of my OE rotors and pads after 3 years of ownership.

    Rears were still good.

    Also changed out engine air filter with WIX and cabin filter.

    Soon

    painted and installed my front shackles. Just got my Tundra back in August. Have been wanting to slowly and surely start doing subtle (at first) modifications to make it my own. Green is for our local team, Caddo Mills Foxes. I've gotten confirmation today that my motofab 3" front 2" rear leveling kit has shipped. CANT WAIT to get that installed, so I can go pick up my new tires. I love the ride, but I'm so ready to get rid of the highway treads and get into a solid A/T.

    I like the little details, and dont currently have the budget for major overhauls. lol.

    Looks good! Lot of little things you can do that really personalize your truck. I had painted my front tow hooks blue and I was really amazed oh how much I smiled walking out to the truck and just having that peaking out from the front. Yours will definitely be more visible but I expect you will enjoy them just as much.

    Sprayed 2.5 gallons of fluid film in every crevice of the truck. Gotta save this baby from those mid Michigan winters! Got my setup dialed in perfectly. Wool wax gun, HF compressor and hose, all worked like a charm after some setting adjustments. Hearing the fluid film and shooting at 65 psi was perfect on this chilly evening.

    PXL_20231108_233552953.jpg

    Then I installed my Taco tunes cat shield. Much maligned on this site, but without any evidence that I could find that the plate does not work, I saved the $300 over the next aluminum option with similar specs. Install was a breeze, I like the security bolts. They're a PITA, which is a good thing! Lol

    PXL_20231109_053627379.jpg

    Last thing of the night was installing my aluminum predator side steps. Love these! Don't mind the dirty truck and garage. Def need a wash down for both after spraying the fluid film

    Next up, driver side grab handle

    @Henry1jg very nicely done. A local guy has the same shield, used for sale, that I maybe able to get quite a bit cheaper, with security hardware. On fence though as you said not a popular choice with the group. Why is that do you suppose? Finally, my truck has the OEM TRD front skid plate, do you know if that Taco shield will work? Steps look great btw.

    According to Taco Tunes website, it says it works with stock skid plates & aftermarket ones.

    Thanks Rusty. I like that it’s heavily vented as well.

    Check the build link in my signature.
    Because they have a long standing history of fucking over their customers (members here) to the point that you’ll see the ownership of this site (and sister sites) have any links to their site automatically blocked

    ^ Comforting to know not much can go wrong with a piece of metal although their CS apparently blows. Thanks for the fyi RainMan.

    I guess I shouldn’t have provided the link, my bad lol.

    I honestly had no idea about the customer service. Never bought anything from them before. So, no experience there. But appreciate the advise.

    Been some reviews popping up about them not lasting anymore. Quality definitely tanked. They were great when I first got them, then started to flicker and finally burned out.
