    Well, I started with a stock, 2007 Double Cab, 4X4, SR5 with the optional mechanical limited slip rear differential.

    It didnt' stay stock for long . . . and mods began:

    First, Redline hood struts (highly recommend) . . . huge difference. With all the times I've opened the hood . . . BIG time saver.

    Then, TRD Cold air intake, and new exhaust (Magnoflow muffler and stainless steel tip). I did all the work and welding.

    Then, I began my dual battery install: http://www.ttora.com/forum/showthread.php?p=1821267#post1821267

    The audio took the most time, but was worth it. Went with JL 300/4 V2 amp, JL Stealthbox, and Kenwood touchscreen w/nav:[​IMG]

    I've got the ICON coilovers (front and rear), Camburg 1.25" uniball UCAs, and Alcan replacement leaf pack. Time to do the install.

    Front suspension is finally done (of note, there is a slight issue with contact between the ICON coils and the new Camburg UCA's at full droop -- probably b/c the new Camburg UCAs use a larger uniball).[​IMG]
