    Headlights and front grille were much easier than I expected. Hoping for the same here!

    It's simple, a good project to pop your cherry. Only a few hand tools required. A second set of hands is helpful. My daughter was 5 at the time and could probably do it herself now.

    It will. I used this exact model in my prior peace officer position on a regular basis, good lights for their size and they hold up to abuse over the years.

    It is beautiful! I am thinking of the same hood protector/deflector but in chrome. Does the 3M tape only located at the area of the hood with chrome or part of painted area as well? I have not decided because I don't like the idea of having sticky tape on the white paint.

    Honestly I really don’t like it. I would much prefer the Toyota branded OEM one. It fits night and day different than mine as my dad has one on his 2016. It fits molded to the hook and twice as thick material. His holding points are much better as well for the deflector as well as more adhesive. Never had an issue with the 3M adhesive my self besides getting it off

    It comes out easy. There are a couple of clips on each side.

    The one around the shifter has to be hot glued back in. You break it away (plastic rivets) from the larger piece.

    The chrome delete project continues. Slowly but surely. @Roman thanks for getting my parts to me so quickly and all under $200 from Toyota of Cool Springs Next project is the hood decal which also came in today. Gonna have to wait till the weekend though. Gotta have a lot of patience for that.

    got hit in a damn parking lot last week by someone, no idea who it was. hopefully my dent man can make it disappear! also installed the S&B air filter, haven't quite figured out fuel economy increase for real yet but my DTE screen is showing 425 on fuel up with is about a 100 mile improvement.....even though i know it's not quite accurate but was nice to see after the first fill up! excuse the filthy engine bay, my truck stays pretty dirty most of the time.

    No mods at all. The bar is designed so the cover slides under it and the bar base goes around and over. I was surprised how sturdy it is. Very well made. I think you can get it so if you don't have a tonneau cover it bolts on with a different lower bracket. One of the features I liked about the Tyger sport bar was that it bolts to the inside of the bed to the lip just above the cargo rails. Others bolt to the top of the side of the bed, so if you remove them they leave big holes on top.

    Replaced all the cigarette lighters with USB ports. Plenty of how to threads so I just wanted to add a few things. I purchased these off Amazon they are from same maker, two are newer models, one was a mistake but oh well.

    Only modding to the oem is to slightly open up the hole. I’ve read a few post but nobody mentioned this up size drill bit I can’t remember the correct name, but it’s a great tool to have clean hole and open just enough that you need takes the guess work out of it.

    One other thing on removal you need to take the lighter out in two pieces the housing then the ring. A sturdy dental pick makes popping the tabs out easy.

    No keyless fob and cigarette lighters are probably my only disappointment in this truck LOL
