Alright gents here is my build thread. This will be a growing endeavor as i figure out what i want to do. I just got my first taco 8/24. Had to follow in my brothers footsteps and create a build thread (http://www.toyota-4runner.org/3rd-ge...ld-thread.html).
Here she is in all her glory with a not so good pic! Magnetic Grey Metalic. This will also function as a before pic
It came with chrome steps and mud flaps, both were removed and sold on the forums.

OBDII monitor - Dashcommand - after a horrible experience with an amazon vendor (don't ever buy from ANKAmall) i finally got the wifi version that works with my phone.
Tailgate theft tard check - Did the hose clamp addition, went on quick and easy!
Permanent mount Valentine 1 - I have had this V1 in a few cars now, and imo for the way i drive is a must have, so i mounted it in this truck. Not a big fan of it all the way to the right since i'm 6'5" and it blocks some of my vision. Thinking of a way to mount it below or above the mirror. The dots on the glass prevent suction cups from sticking up by the mirrior. The second picture shows the wire tap i used, and the ground is attached to a dash mount inside the panel.
- a little bit of a process here, had hexibase's (probably known from youtube) design a sub enclosure for an Alpine SWR-843D. I'm no competition guy, or car audio buff but i appreciate some good sound. Picked up the bundles from tacotunes as well for front and back of the car. After around 5 days of getting my tracking number the order actually shipped. I got an INE-Z928HD with a parking brake bypass i got off ebay. I also got the KTX-TCM8 perfect fit kit for it however since alpine is awesome at their fit kits, it isn't avail yet for shipping. I called them earlier this week and they expect them to ship to dealers at the end of sept.
Ordered a couple wiring kits because the first one i got, the boss one i didn't trust. It was supposed to be 10 gauge and i highly doubt it was, so i ordered a better brand 8 gauge.
Taco tunes shipment showed up, everything looks good except i'm missing my wiring harness. Composite fronts, component rear. E-mailed them, response was instant, and should receive them sometime soon.
Got all the stuff to make the sub box (which will go behind my rear seats) and some RAAMATT sound deadening material, all 22lbs of it! 37.5 sq ft btx II, and 14 sq ft of ensolite which, from what i have found will cover most of the areas of the car that i plan to do (rear and doors). Can't really tell from the following pic but it is carpet for the sub box, and the box of sound deadening material.
Thats all for now, will post more pix when the process starts
