2010 Pyrite SR5 4x4
Sadly, I got sideswiped by a flatbed truck, but the I made the most of a bad situation and upgraded to a 2013 MGM Sport!
I'll leave this thread here, but my new one is here.
How it was before the accident
And how we got here....
First things added were a USASPEC PA15-TOY iPod interface (installed day one, but replaced later...see below), then came Westin nerf bars, in-channel rain guards, Weather Tech floor mats, and RockyMounts bike rail racks.
Next up, Lamin-X yellow fog light covers, but the damn things wouldn't stay on very well, the edges kept coming up.
Next came the Kamikaze Wild Turkey mod, seconds to install, a week and $500 deductible to uninstall.
Moving on, got me some Moto Metal 951's
Now we're getting somewhere...but tires will have to wait 'til these wear out.
Ditched the Lamin-X and got some real fog lights, these are still yellow, but a bit more amber, which I like better.
Next, I had SockMonkey make me a special yellow edition of the Trailiens bedside decal. When they arrived, I was a bit surprised at how BIG they were. I thought they might overwhelm the truck if I put them in the usual spot, so I got a little crazy and put them on the rear door instead. EDIT: The Trailiens were pretty cool, but after a year I decided to try something new (details further down).
6/20/10 - Added an Alpine CDA-117 along with the steering wheel interface SWI-JACK.
This stereo is freakin' awesome!! I knew I was going to like it, but I LOVE it!!
I'm also very happy with the Scosche dash kit. It matches the dash around it perfectly, although that doesn't show very well in the pics. You can tell though, by looking at the hazard button color compared to the dash kit. It also doesn't have that ugly (IMO) texture that the original had.
And it is very solid. I've read some complaints about them being flimsy, but once I figured out exactly the right way to install it, is was perfect.
The iPod really cranks now, not like my experience with the PA15-TOY, plus the songs/artists that are too long to display will scroll so that you see the entire text.
6/19/10 - Color matched grille
Update - 7/17/10: D-Ring mod finally completed!!
Update - 7/25/10: Muth heated signal mirrors and Highlander switch....only took 3 months of studying/procrastinating...
12/4/10: Remote Starter installed
2/12/2011: Completed the "Disable A/C Linked Defrost" mod!! Now my windshield will finally be free of ice during those cold New England ice/snow storms.
5/11 - Going for a new look, Plasti-dipped the rear bumper and put on Sockmonkey retro decals. I'll have better pics of the bumper and additional decals when it stops raining.
Better pic of the Plasti-dipped bumper, and no I'm NOT short and fat!!
5/11 - 6/11 More of the new Sockmonkey badges and Hankook Dynapro ATm tires:
8/18/11 Finally leveled!! Got the rear TSB and Front 5100s set at 1.75"
