    This is the beginning of my build. Just bought the truck February 7th after shopping for months. Stay tuned, this will grow over the next couple of months (or as the bonuses roll in).

    It will be a hybrid build - family to fun outdoor events and daily driver. Plan is to go with white body, black accessories and few red highlights. So look cool, be functional off-road and get decent mpg.

    Installed NX501 yesterday. Kids and I love it!

    Drove the family around yesterday while watching a DVD (kids, not me... obviously, cause that would be dangerous :)). Then tested Navigation while streaming Pandora or HDRadio. Got a call from the wife while driving, it paused the music, answered the call and it sounded great.

    I've added the video streaming relay and ASWC for steering control.

    2nd favorite purchase after tires/rims.

    Added Sound Ordnance B-8PT. I'm liking the extra bass it adds, nothing crazy but makes the music more enjoyable.
