Cool custom color match back plate for the bumper
first wheeling trip with me in MT
Installing 3lrs on homemade brackets
Making the URD CAI fit on the TRD SC!!! Satoshi is REQUIRED!!
sounds BAD ASS!
Added the new custom afe air filter. Gave better clearance so the rock shield could go back on.
Fits like a glove with the grill.
Ask added a rear view mirror bracket that raises the mirror 2"! VERY nice.
Current project is installing a cobra ltd 29 CB by cutting it up and added extended wires to mount the control face in the lower front console while the speaker and circuit board go under the seat.
Also installed a console vault!
This is the top plate. My dad is lord of wood working.
Nice and snug. Just zip tied down. It's not going anywhere though.

Old school fabrication
