    I have two cars one a Honda Acoord the second a Nissan Altima both each have one headlight that has turned yellow, I read about some product sthat would help but I was unabale to find any of them in my area, is there another suggesstion other then buying new headlights :confuse:
  • Ok, got the new (I mean really new shipped from assembly 29 miles) 2006 2wd 4cyl auto Access cab with SR5 package. Just wanted basics for first time truck owner; I think I was able to get a really good deal on last day of the month. OTD with tax and title included $19,870.

    Anyway, right off the bat I need some recommendations where I go online to purchase:
    a) the black fender moldings -- and instructions to mount them. I think this will add a little more strength to the asthetics of the wheel wells.
    b) 2wd doesn't come with splash guards on front; so a link would be good for this too.

    thx gang --- give me your opinions of the moldings and whether you are pro or con for this.

    I had a fiberglass cover installed on my 2005 double cab,short bed(5 foot)Tacoma. The only problem I see with the cover is the hinges. When you close the cover the hing takes up most of the space for the rails/tie downs. I also have a bed divider it needs about 8 inches of the rail space to tighten it on the rail. With the cover closed I had to move the divider in front of the hinges, which put it about 3/4 up in the bed, not much good that way.
    If I could remove the clamps used to hold the cover rails in place I think it would allow more space for the tie downs and divider to work better. I read the discussion on front tie down rings (aftermarket from toyota). I would like to know if anyone has drilled holes in the bed rail and removed the big clamps. I know it is a composite material but they make self tapping screws that hold pretty good. If I could reach the bottom of the bed rail, as discussed in the tie down rings, I could put a lock nut on the screw and remove the clamps.
    Any suggestions.

    Hello fellow Tacoma owners, I am a newbie to this site so please bear with me if I error in posting.

    I have found a Grill Guard company that looks like they make sweet guards but stopped with the 2004 model year. (Tal & Hadas also known as T&H)

    They are based in Brooklyn and have offered me a free Brush Guard, Skid Plate and Side Steps ($1500 value) if I bring my truck in for a week to have their engineers get the measurements off of it so they can design guards for the new style.

    Unfortunately, I live in North Carolina and don't have any way of "dropping" my truck off. I was hoping someone closer would take them up on their offer and want a free set?

    Their website is

    Good luck, their stuff looks sweet, especially if you can get it for free.
  • I just purchased a 07 Tacoma SR5 4-dr SB with the 4L a/t. Where is a good place to shop for accessories and aftermarket goodies? I also would like to add XM (I have the old Skyfi unit from my last truck, an F250) and an alarm (beyond the "clicker" set I got with the keys from the stealership).

    I have a 2007 Dbl Cab Tacoma with the sport package. I was wondering if any of you actually made the fake hood scoop into a functional one? Was it a lot of trouble and was it worth it?
  • I have an '07 Tacoma and put an ARB winch bumper and winch on my truck along with a Daystar leveling kit on the front to bring it back up to stock ride height. 3 months later I hauled 300lbs in the bed and it now leans almost an inch to the left. I have been fighting with the dealership as they want me to return the truck to completely stock before they will replace any of the springs. Even 4 Wheel Parts (where I had everything installed) said they cant find anything wrong and it has to be a bad spring. The dealership even put it on a frame machine to see if the frame bent and its not. So now they are saying its because of the bumper and winch that weigh less than 200lbs. This is complete [non-permissible content removed]. So heres what I need help with I need anyone that has or knows someone with the same bumper to take pics of your truck no matter what year and send them to me. The pics will help me fight the dealership. And has anyone else had this problem?
  • Just bought a new Tacoma i live in a state where you need a front license plate. Is anyone familiar with a license plate bracket that does not screw into the bumper?? i have seen a version in the past but cannot now locate..thanks for any input

    I'm purchasing an 09 Extended Cab Prerunner Long Bed and will add a box/shell to match.
    I have the option of getting the factory roof racks on the cab and or on the box. I have a 21cf Trule Carrier Box (think Mr. Spock's coffin) and need to decide if it will be better carried on the cab or on the box. Even with either a rear shift of the cab racks (if adjustable) or a forward [non-permissible content removed] off the box racks - I am concerned that the box will either sit too far forward or too far back and interfear with trailer towing. I don't have access to a live model of the rackings to observe, so I am asking here to see if anyone has experience on such matters for guidance.
  • I would like to know if any Tacoma owner has added a cover to a short bed. I recently bought a 2011, 4 door, short bed, and added a hard cover(A.R.E) to the bed, installed by a well known company in our area. My problem is, the cover was leaking when I took it to a car wash. I took it back and they re-installed it with lots of water sealer, but still leaking. I would like to hear from any one who added a hard cover and what's your results? Thanks, Mack

    Well, reading through the forum here after going to the Toyota dealer to find some D-Rings for my 2009 Tacoma that they didn't have has me some what surprised for such a simple item. I too just want to put two more of the rings in as just the two in the back of the bed are nice but would be greatly enhanced if there were two more by the cab. Anyway looking at the forum here and all the links given none of them seem to be recognizable by the computer. Perhaps they have been removed from the web. I go to a Toyota site and I see the D-Rings as options with which I can build a truck with but no part number or way to order them. Is there any new information out there that might be better updated? Thanks all
