    Step bars, billet grill with custom TOYOTA, MB Quart RSI 216 components, Hifonics ZXi 4410, RAAMmat deadened doors/back wall/roof covered with ensolite , 24" Magnaflow muffler, hand polished stock exhaust tip, tinted, OEM TRD Bilstiens all around with 1/4" spacers up front to level it out. Sport wheels added.
    I have it all deadened and ensolited. Door speakers are installed, all the wiring ran. Working on the roof now. Just have to ensolite it. I also have to fill and water proof the 15 holes that are left from the roof warts I removed (see gallery).

    I'm getting to old for all this crawling around vehicles.:devil:

    I'm waiting on power wire to arrive before really getting on with finishing.

    Sweet! You are balls-ier than I. I didn't wanna mess with the roof... an area I'm unfamiliar with. Makes me a little uneasy when I have to start waterproofing the area above my head. You'd think I'd be ok with that, being an ex-Navy Diver on a submarine and all! :D

    I know what you mean about the getting old part. There were times I was bending around and under things and thinking to myself how it wasn't as easy anymore!

    What you do "spec ops" Im in dire straights for a rate change. Looking either swcc or EOD. Apparently EOD is in big demand. We got a command wide email looking for people to go.

    I actually wouldn't mind helping... I'm just not doing that again for a while by myself! =)

    Thanks! Actually, before I was a diver I was radioman, which is where I learned about wiring and such. Sonar just seemed SO BORING! haha
    Installs can go way over the top, but... to keep it simple, the stuff out today IMO make it much easier to do your own install.
