If you do end up w/ the trail gear ones and do the coating yourself go w/ this stuff http://www.monstaliner.com/ Rolled the bedliner down this summer myself as figured for the price difference between that and a line-x job I'd give it a go, I also am not using my bed as a work truck so the abuse level isn't too high. Stuff is great, prep is key.

And for seat covers, I'd recommend Wet Okole if you haven't already made up your mind. The neoprene material is fantastic for all things that may get on them. I haul the dogs during muddy season and just brush them off a day later! Check Tacomaworld forum for a group buy opportunity. They are pricey, however well worth the extra amount. Fit is spot on and again I love the material.

Thanks for the info on the liner, and I'm all over Tacomaworld, waiting on the next WO group buy.

The sliders may wait, just got a great deal on a camera lens.

I always borrow it from him for trips, he never uses it, has more glass than he knows what to do with.

He asked if I wanted to buy it and what I wanted to pay for it, I said they go for $450-500 he said how about $350.

I had a 24-105 when I shot Canon, it was my go to lens and was on the body 95% of the time. Great glass for all around work. Now if only Sony would come out with something similar at a not ridiculous price point...

Just installed a new blower fan for the heat and AC, no more chirp, it was driving me insane.

OK, will be ordering seat covers soon, need to decide on Wet Okole wetsuit material ones, or Clazzio leather ones. Would go all black no matter what I choose, the Wet Okoles would go more with my truck but the Clazzios would be cheaper.

Wet Okole


Clazzios

You know wet Okoles get my choice. Had them in the Tacoma and now in the Tundra. Things take a beating all seasons w/ the pups and clean up with ease. Super absorbent (given material of course) and dirt just brushes off the next day.

I'd personally pass on the logo inclusions as mine started to wear/peel after about a year given placement and rubbing while getting in and out...might've just been a specific instance for me though.

Yeah I figured as much with the logo, I thought they were embroidered initially realized yesterday they were just screen printed (not worth the $30 after discount) I actually ordered the Clazzios today, they were in stock and honestly it was a toss up between the two with me, came down to cost and availability.

With the wet okole group buy I'm looking at a couple months wait, will be upgrading my suspension over Easter weekend and the seat covers are the last thing I'm doing (for now) just want this thing "done" before it gets nice out.

They just kicked it off so it might be a while before you get them, one of the reasons I passed on them, I'm impatient.

Are they waterproof underneath? ie, does water pass through to the seat itself if it's beyond the ability of the material to absorb?

If the amount of water was significant and sat there long enough maybe, I wouldn't have a reference point. I've sat on them post river and lake time a plenty with no issue. The website lists it as 1/2" thick neoprene w/ nylon laminate, so a pretty solid width for water to make it through.

Well it'd been a little bit since buying anything for the ol truck, figuring i'll "finish" it on out for the most part this summer. There will always be new shinny things, but I'm sitting pretty content right now.

New add-ons:
S-POD controller
Odyssey Performance Series Battery
Lightbar (had been sitting for a while and finally sorted how I wanted it behind the modified mesh grill)
Fab Four Rear Bumper
Flush mount Rear Backup lights (still need to install)

Plans:
Demello Sliders: Link
Retrofit projectors and blackout headlights Link
