    SO....I have here a build log for my 2015 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road. I have been slowly building it up since I got it. I have been looking for a name for it, but can't think of one yet...
    Here follows the log.
    These first few are just the truck's first trips. I got a few mods right away from the dealership when I purchased it, namely the TRD Pro grille and exhaust system.

    The next mods done were to yank the plastic storage bins behind the rear seats. This allowed me to increase the storage. I installed a rack to hang a tool bag first aid and other miscellaneous bags.

    After that I did some internal stuff, changed out knobs and things like that. But the next major change was adding the Softtopper and making a mod to the fog lights to run whenever wanted. IMG_0292.JPG IMG_0293.JPG IMG_0321.JPG IMG_0337.JPG

    These are the SOS Offroad Concepts softtopper bed rack and rock sliders. I prepped them and coated them with spray bed liner and then installed them before winter came. IMG_0568.JPG IMG_0615.JPG IMG_0617.JPG IMG_0623.JPG IMG_0625.JPG IMG_0633.JPG

    This looks like it is coming along nicely. The Softtopper/rack combo looks interesting. Thanks for sharing.

    When you mounted the rotopax mount, did you use the circle plate? Or just bolt through the existing holes just next to the big holes in the rack?

    No I didn’t use the supplied plate that comes with the rotopax lock. The holes on the welded on plate on the rack was pre drilled for the rotopax. I had to file one of the holes slightly to get the bolts to line up. I also used purple loctite to lock the bolts to make it more secure.
