More pictures. Leather seats and Moonroof were dealer added at 240 miles (negotiated with truck purchase, but had to order the parts and send it to an outside shop.)

Katzkin leather seats in all black with grey stiching and TRD embroidered. Rears to match. Heated seats added.

Webasto hollandia 700 moonroof. Powered with tilt and slide. They removed both the sunglasses holders to install. I think it looks pretty damn good.

Love those seats, how much if you don't mind me asking?
Also, did they paint the center console?

Update!

Got my Pioneer AVH-P4400BH installed. Used the metra dash kit to get me by until the new 2012 kit comes out. I like the look of the black a lot with the dash.

Installed the XM unit behind the glove box, completely out of the way to leave under my seats for amps.

Ipod hookup in the glove box.

Pac-Audio SWI-PS to keep my factory steering controls.

So far so good, I really like the unit. Didn't need nav, that's what my phone's for.

How do you like the quickshifter? My truck just came in and I'm having it installed on it.

It made a big difference, you feel like the stock shifter was swimming compared to the trd. I actually banged my knuckles on the dash with the original, so the trd was almost a necessity. It's definitely worth the money. Install isn't hard, you could do it yourself if you wanted to save a few bucks.

TRD Supercharger showed up this morning. Fit kit is here next week. Install hopefully the end of next week.

Anybody have opinions on the TRD Bronze wheels? I'm not sure how good they would look....I go back and forth on it being ugly or awesome....opinions?

Went into the dealer today to get blown! Supercharger should be on by the end of the day or tomorrow. Best deal I could find from the local dealerships was 8 hours of labor. Pics to come!

Boom! Supercharged! I also swapped out my grill for a color matched instead of the chrome. The less chrome the better....
