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.
