Picked up my 2019 Quicksand TRD Off Road last weekend. Like I said new to Toyota's and Tacoma's. But I'm coming from a 07 Subaru WRX (still have it) so I'm used to a little off roading and getting my vehicle dirty:LOL:

Probably only going to do exterior mods (for now). So far I have, the pro grill, a light bar, HIDs and some vinyl overlays sitting at home waiting for my weekend off to install.

Looking forward to meeting a new type of community.

I love the hidden light bar behind the grille like that. And you did 4 Raptor lights, compared to the usual 3 most people do. Looks nice.

It's not a raptor so I went with the four it came with. Kidding, I did put three in but I didn't like the spacing to have them centered so I went with four to keep them spaced evenly.

What did you use for your interior LED's? I have a 2019 Offroad and I really want to do a full led swap.

I feel the map lights are the perfect brightness, the dome light could be brighter, the vanity lights are too bright, and the license plate lights put a little bit of glare in the backup camera. Overall I'm happy with the set though.


Just installed them and it was incredibly easy and didnt have to worry about the dome light fitment as some people have mentioned for the 2019. I do wish they would mark the +/- so I didnt have to keep flipping the damn lamps.

Were you able to get the map lights out easy? I found it easiest to just remove the whole unit and remove the lamps from behind. I couldn't get a grip on them otherwise.

That's what's up, hope you're happy with it. I took the whole unit out

Today, my truck wouldn't start on my lunch. Low oil pressure and ATF temp high. I don't understand how the fluid temp could be high when the truck was sitting for 4.5hrs. Only 3922 Miles on the truck needless to say I'm pissed. After waiting a few more hours I was able to start it, but it wouldn't rev over 1500RPM. Limped it to a better spot for a tow.

After doing some research I've seen "dented" transmission oil pans can cause this. I crawled under and seen no dents also took pictures.

Also, seen it could be a bad crank position sensor.

So far that's all I know, anything else I should look out for?

I've installed the heating elements but haven't wire it up yet. It's been way to hot for that kind of project. Off hand I can't remember, I added them to my order when I ordered my seat covers.

Got the truck back from the dealer today. They couldn't replicate the faults. They started a case file for me but said if it happens again put everything back to factory so Toyota can follow up on it. Somehow, Toyota suspects it's my Meso key fob that caused it.?

Interesting that they think it's the Meso Key fob, did they give any reason for that thought? Plenty of us have them so if it becomes an issue I'm sure we will hear more about it. Recently after 5 months (starting around 5k miles) of no cruise control, stability control, and my crawl control not working, Toyota finally figured it out so I know the frustration!

It could be blocking the smart keys signal so it doesn't start properly.
