    Hello Everyone!

    Haven't done a whole lot to my truck yet, but hope to in the near future :)

    Purchased my 2015 XSP-X in Oct. of 2017. Previously, I was into Jeeps (Cherokees and Grand Cherokees) but I wanted a new adventure, so here we are!

    Here she is the day I brought her home:

    A quick trip to the ocean for some dramatic sunset shots ;)

    After that, the first order of business was new tires. Went with 265-75-R17 BFG Mud Terrains (the original KM1). Slight increase in road noise, but worth it for traction so far, I'd say.

    So far, I am just working on the typical TW basic mod type stuff. @boogie3478 and his YouTube videos got me started right by hooking me up with some awesome TRD door latch covers :)

    From there, I saw his video on probably the most popular mod here, the Chinese climate control knobs. I think it makes a world of difference from the stocks.

    Finally, I replaced the boring stock shift knob with this one from Amazon, supposedly for a Hilux. Either way, I think it is a lot prettier to look at than the stock one, plus it fits with the carbon-fiber theme of the XSP-X.

    Current plans for the foreseeable future include an interior LED light swap, starting with the gear selector bulb (again, thanks to @boogie3478), vipmoto LED taillights, a canopy, and some iteration of a 3" lift. Would also love to do some kind of exhaust system, but being a former Jeep guy, I'm not sure what a lot of you guys run. Flowmasters?

    If anyone has any other recommendations or questions, please let me know. Hoping to keep posting here more often!
