Figured I may as well throw up a build thread now that I am making some progress on my rig. Bought my 2004 used in 2006 on New Years Eve, was hoping to squeak a few extra dollars out of the dealership before the end of year. Truck was stock except for a K&N CAI and a Vortex throttle body spacer. The bed must have been scratched up as they had just had it sprayed with Rhino liner or the equivalent.

The day I brought it home:
Quickly making sure my measurements at the dealer were correct and that my bike would fit.
Getting my dogs seal of approval!
A set of Icons a few years later and a AAL kit for the stock leafs.
A pic after the install...
Little removable toolbox setup for the bed, turned out pretty well.
A little taste of sand, had the bike for the day so it got the abuse not the Taco.
Got a Grillcraft grill and blacked out the chrome grill surround.
Picked up a used black canopy for the truck....
So I had to transport the bike a different way...
New All Pro 3 inch pack to replace the saggy rear end, even with the Icon AAL it was sitting too low, especially when the bike was on the back.
Pretty soon the AP pack was sagging really bad and threw on a longer AP shackle set to try and make it last a bit longer.
Traded in my Yakima rack for a Wilderness trail rack and flush mounted it on the roof. Added some Hella lights facing sideways and towards the rear.
BAMP sliders primed up and ready to paint...
Painted and installed... with a softopper replacing the fiberglass canopy.
BAMF BPV bracket helped a lot.
Elite front bumper, painted and set up with a new winch and PIAA fogs.
Holee Shit that was one heavy sumbitch to mount up!
Added a few Hella light to the top of the bumper and got my CB antenna mounted.
Decided I needed a good switch setup so I ditched the factory stereo and got a nice Pioneer and then fabbed up a plastic switch plate for under the new stereo. Ordered some sweet switches from OTRATTW,com.
Bought a used rear bumper and sanded, painted and drilled a few holes for some Hella backup lights.
Bought a set of stock base model Tundra wheels off Craigslist for real cheap, same wheel as the stock spare.
Sanded, painted, mounted up with my BFG MT's
Wheelskins steering wheel cover, feels a lot better than the stock wheel.
Kept rubbing the rear of the fenderwells when getting close to stuffing the rears, decided something needed to change.
Rear was sagging badly with any weight in the back and especially with the bike on the hitch. Decided to order some new leafs.... Last pic before the new leafs.
Dakar leafs and OME rear sport shocks with the AP shackles.
A set of Timbrens off craigslist, probably to be replaced by something else later on that's smaller.
New hoops for the Elite bumper from my local fab shop. (Saw Ponethousands and PCBuilders and had to copy them)
While I was at the shop I had them reinforce the rear end in anticipation of my new bumper that should be here soon. Also had them weld in a tube and mounts top and bottom for the rear shocks. (mounting location stolen from BoxRocket)
Random shot from this winter, was driving every day and the ice just kept building up and melting off.
