NO Soap box needed. I am on YOUR side. This is one of the mods, I DON'T WANT. I am not a person who mods for mods sake. All $1300 spent so far, has been for things I wanted to change (nav, led interior etc), or for my kids (steps, handles).

...

Also not sure of your sliders, I have the OEM ones on trail team - and you can't stand on them. Not enough room between slider and body to put your feet in, and the coating is slippery esque on my car...
I have the Shrockworks sliders. When you open both the front and rear doors there is room to stand on the sliders. A lot of people end up getting sliders that have a step plate. I didnt - I got the ones that tilt up toward the sides of the body but work fine for standing on for short periods of time while holding onto the roof rack (Prinsu). Here are a couple pics:

Also, you can add 3M grip tape like product to the sliders to make them a little less slippery.

Mods completed today:

1) drilled holes for fog light wiring. Had to extend oem AUX light wiring

2) wire the relay- so instead of fog working when high beam on (as toyota wanted), now fog works completely independent of all lights . Big thanks to @jkjet @sni511per


3) add android auto and apple car play outlets

4) wire the fog light button so green indicator works when light is on

5) wire the foglight with other switches (rear diff lock), so that fog light button is orange when headlights are on like all instrument lights


Last mod left : ordered one more button- so that there are no more blanks
