    Hey guys, I have finally decided to become an active member after over a year of lurking the forum with envy. I recently purchased a 2015 DCSB TRD Sport Prerunner and love it. I wanted 4x4 but there is no legitimate reason for it in South FL (at least not for me). I sold my 2004 4runner to a friend for the trade-in price that carmax had offered me, so it was a good day for both of us. I have done a few mods so far with the help of Mmadej and of course all of you guys.

    Current Mods:

    -Weathertechs,
    -Tint: 20% all around, 55% windshield
    -Plastidipped emblems and center caps
    -Carpeted backside of rear seats (traction for dogs)
    -Built doors for rear storage bin
    -Grip taped door wells
    -Bedside bottle opener and collapsible cup holders
    -Pop n Lock (PL5400)
    -Truxedo Truxport roll up tonneau cover

    Future Mods (hopefully):

    -Swap Scooped hood for non-scooped
    -BHLM
    -Anytime fog lights
    -New AT tires (once mine are worn out)
    -Seat covers (okoles or clazzio)
    -Bed lights
    -D-rings for the bed
    -Mag lite mod

    Thanks guys,

    They are great because they are completely out of the way when folded up and come with very sturdy mounting tape so that you don't have to drill holes (although I secured them with self tapping screws after a few days, just in case). They can be found at most boating/marine stores. I found mine at West Marine for about $7 each.
