Here's a picture of my new 2010 Tacoma Pre-Runner as it was being loaded off the dock en route to South Florida... And as for how long it took me to complete all the mods featured on this thread... I started working on the mods the day I brought the truck home, and it took about three weeks to get everything done. I'm still waiting for the Wet Okole seat covers (on order) though... I'll post a few more pictures once I get them installed.

Good mods man. Here's a suggestion: coat that bed plywood with Herculiner. It'll hold anything & everything in place, is tough as nails and it'll protect the wood from the weather.

Thanks. I'm definitely going to look into the Herculiner.

UPDATE!!! - More mods installed!

Hello Again Everybody!

Well, my Wet Okole seat covers finally came in today! It took about an hour and a half to install them and they’re simply amazing. A perfect look, and a perfect fit. I went with red and black to match my truck and even my Maltese dog Misty approves (see pictures below) As Misty is part of our family too and travels with us wherever we go, I purchased a “center console dog carrier” for her on eBay. The cost was about $50. The dog carrier fits snugly between the front seats on top of the center console and gives her a 360 degree bird’s-eye view of everything going on outside while we’re traveling.

Another recent mod (if you want to call it a mod) is the purchase of an “Air Vent GPS Mount” for my Garmin Nuvi. Again, purchased on eBay for less than $5 delivered, and it really solves the problem WELL of how to mount a Garmin GPS in a 2nd generation Tacoma. Check out the picture below. Neat and tidy and the GPS easily unclips if you want to store it away from view.

I’m also in the process of installing some after-market fog lights using an OEM switch and relay. I’ll post an update and pictures of that project when completed so check back to this thread soon! Until then, thanks for visiting and be sure to post a reply!

Thanks to OP. I completely agree on the plywood bed. It is my very first mod on my 2006 4x4 TRD. I used much thicker plywood, 1.25 subfloor plywood. I intend to install strips of quick disconnect tie downs along each edge. I also will be painting the plywood with industrial epoxy paint for color and protection. Now, about that 12V plug in rear of cab, that is my next step and I shall do some searching for the steps in how to hide the wire and do that install.
