Thanks,

I hope to as well,

Someday, right now I'm more focused on making her more butch. I have some ideas for lighting in the future, including lighting up the interior a little better with some LED's

If somebody would quit spending all his money on his FJ, maybe somebody could afford to get another Tacoma.

Update.

Here is a pic with the winch installed!!!! And out on the trail.

FYI on the air compressor. The thing rocks!!!! I was able to air up 4 265/75 R16's from 15psi to 36psi in about 10 minutes.

Newest mod.

Lights, and not for the front or back of the rig.

A little gripe of mine is the lack of light near the front of the console. At night it's a pain to find anything in that area. So i solved the problem with some 10mm led's.
Before with flash.

Without flash (camera sucks at night shots without tripod)

And now light.

Nice! I've thought about something very similar in mine. The '09s have a little "under ledge" that would be perfect to light up the otherwise black hole that is down there. Right above the cigarette lighter, aux power, etc... It points straight down.



What kind of lights did you use?
