What do you guys do with your wheel Wells/fender liners?

This is what mine looks like, I had to cut it for the front bumper and then I was slightly hitting until I added a spacer on my wheeler bumps. Hopefully not hitting anymore. debating taking it off and just painting it. Hope this is not a dumb question but is that white spot on bare metal always there or did I lose something and never noticed? Haha

Mine have been gone for a very long time, front and rear, but I’m also LT and fiberglass front and rear. I taped and plastic drop cloth wrapped the truck up and then spray painted all up in there with black so it didn’t look as shitty, the liners definitely make it look cleaner, and a lot of people get fend-x liners to keep the clean look, but now that I tubbed my fronts to hell, I seam sealed my plate welds and used several coats of bedliner and it doesn’t look as shitty anymore, so I don’t miss the liner at all

ugh stupid furnace taking the fun out of life. Every time I get a pile of money it seems something else pops up to take it from me.
Seems to be that way around here too haha.
Good news, the house will probably be way more comfortable with a new one. I upgraded my 20 year old one in my house, and it's SOO much nicer to be in the house during winter. I'm a little excited to test out the A/C in the Summer too.
This one was about 20urs old too. I've been remodeling a lot hopefully a new one helps with all the new insulation. Need to find a fuel oil unit. There are no gas lines out where I live

Always a bummer when you’re forced to spend money to replace something old in the house, but usually you get so used to the slow deterioration of performance the new replacements are usually really nice, welcomed improvements, so it helps to lessen the sting on the wallet... usually...

Insulation was the biggest help to me. My house didn't have any in parts of the attic, it was bad. Cut my heating bill in half.

I wish I could tell you they are way more efficient, but I haven't seen that. I'm paying roughly the same amount to keep the house at the same temp. However, I'm now working from home all day, so I imagine the extra 8-10 hours of heat would've been much more pricey.

Couldn't agree more with everything in this statement.

You are absolutely correct on that. You never realize how inefficient things slowly become over time. Then something takes a crap and forces you to upgrade and the difference is night and day.

I was in the same boat. House was built in 1957 and not one exterior wall had insulation in it haha. And I live in a part of the country that sees below zero temps every winter. Back then oil was so cheap they just cranked the heat up and said said the hell with it.

Seat jacks for the passenger seat because my wife said she was sitting on the floor
Tufskinz letter inserts for the glove box door
TRD Pro shift knob
Vinyl letter inserts for the shift knob
Tacoma letter inserts for the tailgate

Found some general pictures online and just modified as I went, really pretty easy and it makes a nice cover for the compartments behind the rear seat when the seat is folded down. Just plywood covered with HomeDepot indoor/outdoor carpeting.

Whipped up a simple, sturdy and light deck for a minimalist drawer system.
Very nice. Looks a bit more cost efficient than the decked system.
