Thanks, guys! I love your truck, Hiatt.

I got some work done today.

Finished wiring up "raptor mod". (Last picture is with my 55w 6k DDM HID's)


Plugged in my LED panel. (I still need resistors)


Test-fit my 10" subwoofer box from Car Audio Factory. (I still need a sub and to clean under the back window...)

Sprayed my Yakima Bike Fork Mounts with bed-liner (need to add another mount in the middle)...


Added Bilstein decals on bottom of doors, but I'm not sure if I like them.

I followed the 2nd gen write-up by kd8bao and the only difference was that I had to dremel a some of the inner supports of the grille to slide the mount in place, and then added two bolts/nuts to hold it. Only took about 2 hours, and the wiring was easy. Let me know if you need any help.

Yep! Makes me miss my frame-rusted Tacoma, sometimes. We also have an '97 80-series LandCruiser with front/rear lockers, which I would love to mod someday.

Today I painted some interior pieces black (switch-panels, floor plastic, and seat plastic) and did the glovebox in plasti-dip because I'm not sure if it like it...


Used Mother's "Back-to-Black" trim stuff and a Magic Eraser to clean the Fender Flares


...and I bought a 10" Shallow Mount (3" depth) Pioneer Subwoofer from Amazon. (and I still haven't had 5100's built or installed yet)

I know lots of people offroad with 2wd w/ locker, but here in Ohio, most are 4wd. I don't have any experience with duratracs, but start up a thread or search and someone smarter will help!

beautiful rig man! subbed!

notice any sag with the all-pro wrap around rear bumper? you mentioned you have the older model... doesn't look much different from their newest other than the added plates, no?

oh and i was wondering, what type of tow hitch did you go with? really looking into getting this bumper, but need a hitch capable of towing a boat...so any info on that would help. thanks!

I got the decals from TunerDecals.com. They are really high quality decals.

I didn't notice any rear sag from the All-Pro, but I have AAL's to help. I think the only difference in the new version is the dimple-die fill plates, and there is a separate hitch assembly. The older version, (mine) has a lower strength mount that is just welded to the bumper. I think the new All-Pro hitch would work well for towing a boat.
