    Well I've had my truck for almost two years now and there has been alot of changes to it since I got it here's the evolution.

    I bought my 2008 V6 SR5 4x4 from metro lexus victoria in April 2008.
    The night I brought it home
    IMG_1758_72716d33aa9a784fd57463993250519bf1ca43e0.jpg
    Then a few days later I decided to take a road trip to Calgary AB to visit some friends that trip is when I began to truly appreciate the quality of truck Toyota had built me.
    In Alberta
    IMG_1764_1cf8824b304c8f577b92adf642bf6bff5340feab.jpg
    Back in BC
    IMG_1780_e14a23b5ba5d15237de6ba5b9d0a4501557a3eac.jpg
    One way
    IMG_1781_1_03198b57d23bf4d294c12cd5708718d1cf674cc8.jpg
    Yes there is a dent in the rear fender that happened 2 days after I got the truck, it has since been fixed
    IMG_1829_3ca0e3d7aa6e5059be60b98f824b542fd540aecf.jpg

    The mods began soon after I got home from Alberta.
    First thing I ever did was bolt on a toyota devil emblem and add some piaa lights in the stock fog spots
    IMG_1839-1_0f7ffa14fb3435c627cbc66381d3c2bb63313813.jpg
    IMG_1859_ca9ce34120d5c0a2cc123d752a8e353d2082871a.jpg

    Followed quickly by 120V outlets in the cab

    IMG_1794_0701896c8395ba775e2e234a88ac08a9eef9e2f1.jpg

    Next thing I did was install some puddle and bed lights

    I quickly grew tired of doing unintentional burnouts every time I took off on wet pavement so I got myself some new tires.
    After a lot of research I decided on Firestone Destination A/T in 265/75/16 size
    IMG_1978_e12f7a0ef67ebe0a57a27d10275be6fc8bc140fb.jpg
    They have done me well

    IMG_2052_98acb8e00709dcdee704f390d7b07ff53e000f77.jpg

    Things slowed here I started my OBA system but only got as far as buying and installing the compressor.
    IMG_2822_0471c47540306096c4dd65dda543e48d63744345.jpg
    That was it for quite a while i lurked and surfed and researched to make my next move when i decided all that was lacking was money I didn't have enough saved up to comfortably buy everything I wanted but lucky for me I was soon being deployed money would not be a problem after that.



    About two months before I got home I started to buy everything mainly off ebay but there were a few things that were bought locally as it was just easier.

    Bought a scanguage and blendmount and installed them (eBay)
    IMG_2814_b075107ab6c15e876595e1ae2cfe9bd8dfa2da9a.jpg

    Ipod adapter (eBay)
    IMG_2817_a923e63f4a1f3aebbfaf359b13315677bdac147c.jpg
    IMG_2818_b0d89161edc3f27b2a013166049a1d71e83ee8a6.jpg

    Bike fork mounts got them from Mountain Equipment Co-op for about $20 each took the rail off drilled two holes into a couple pieces of flat stock bolted them in and reinstalled the rail easy peasy and they won't move.
    IMG_2820_46c09b1a60466b4ae151727aa959fad7316d48e5.jpg
    I take the skewer out when there isn't a bike hooked in otherwise it rattles around and pisses me off to no end
    IMG_2821_c416f011eabad1bd4b2dd168a283ef6cbc2567ce.jpg

    Got a good deal on a complete on board air system so I bought it and decided to use the compressor that I already had cause it was a much better unit anyway and it was already bolted to the truck. (eBay)
    Bought 50ft of 200psi air hose from home depot on sale instead of using the rigid hose that came with the kit, and i've used an ass ton of air fittings, hose clamps and teflon tape. I'm very pleased with how everything turned out so far.
    IMG_2826_04472a9ebca405c790d638770c9f8698fe55f642.jpg
    IMG_2823_e9342bf53342ea28fd348e166018b92e05322d4f.jpg
    yeah the kit came with air horns great for getting those F350 drivers' attention when they think it's their god given right to cut people off. :D
    IMG_2832_b31808cdc4e2469a4be53447a2d7ba003d06119e.jpg

    The next two things are tied between what i like the most
    got a randy ellis light bar and 4 hella black magic driving lights (eBay for the bar and one set of lights local for the other set)
    IMG_2811_5305a9d3d76c04102eacffc8358dad80b70172dd.jpg

    Old man emu suspension for front and rear. I had the front installed by a local shop cause well driveway alignments aren't very good and I didn't want to kill myself with a cheap spring compressor. (Local from Cap-it Victoria could have gotten a better deal with north shore off road but I was in a hurry)
    IMG_2812_492196f1f592ec4667f35ec0cb72b4bddf6a7be2.jpg
    They ride sweet haven't got the rear installed yet. Gonna go to a buddies place one weekend and get it done cause he has a lift and I don't know if you can see my driveway, but its kinda sloped and not jack stand friendly.

    Misc electrical
    Switches are configured different now, now the far right is for the compressor, the horns will not work if the compressor switch is not on. The middle is for both the bed and puddle lights I use them together anyways so I decided to combine them. The fog light switch controls all the aftermarket lights up front. When the switch is on the piaas are on as long as the high beams aren't on, and the hellas only come on with the high beams. Neither work when the switch is off.

    All my relays and fuse holders are contained within an enclosure to keep the engine bay neat and tidy
    IMG_2827_9de35007fb4f1baf9ade70a0946fbe8323e5b1d9.jpg

    Dakars installed

    Pick me up a magnaflow cat back and installed it that night in the dark.
    [​IMG]

    I would like to install lockers front and rear, but for the amount of off roading I do there's not much point. So I would like to get a limited slip put in the rear, not a detroit locker something similar to the stock toyota unit.
    Last but not least I want a plate rear bumper and some sliders, don't know how my air tank position is going to affect mounting the new rear bumper. I will solve that problem when I come to it.

    IMAG0155_be60c1ee905c7ecd3dfe7aa88b355e99851f8a1c.jpg



    As of now I'm done all the big projects. I need to redo some wiring I'm in the middle of making a new wiring harness for all my aftermarket gear. I need to replace my bed and puddle lights with something a little more robust. They're coming soon so stay tuned.
    to be continued....
