For this job we will be using a half inch PEX material. Preferred method to PEX connect toilet? Its a garage so I'm not real concerned about pretty You can bend the PEX on out and crimp a shut off on, but IMO, that doesn't look as clean or feel as solid as simply having the drop ear-stub-shutoff.
Go ahead and crimp it down. Next choice would probably be a stub out elbow to toilet hook up off. And I have been elected to be the one. Didn't see them at Menards or Lowes though just the ice maker boxes.

You can also buy the elbows with the mounting plate. Drop ear elbows offer a comparable way to transition from PEX to rigid pipe. Keep in mind, however, that this strategy may result in exposed PEX and more difficult access to valves in emergency situations.

These valves adapt to the appropriate risers or flexible hoses for connections to fixtures such as faucets, toilets, and dishwashers. After you've done that you're going to take your crimping tool, open it up, place the crimp inside of it. So what you want to do is either t off your main line coming in of your cold water or run a separate line from the main all the way over to your toilet.
