    This is my truck the day I bought it, 09 Tacoma TRD DCLB. I took this pic with my cellphone.

    Shortly after, I ordered a set of WeatherTech DigitalFit floor mats, and WeatherTech window visors. I also applied the foglights anytime mod, and trimmed my front mud flaps about 4 1/2 in.

    Before, I had this 07 Ford Ranger FX4. I liked it, but I was getting to the point I was feeling squeezed inside the cab. This is why I sold it and bought the Tacoma instead.

    Stay tuned for more... it will be another slow build, but a good one I promise.

    I got a Pioneer AVIC-X940BT DVD/GPS/BT HU a few weeks ago. While I was waiting for my wire harness, dash kit & steering wheel interface kit from Tacotunes, I decided to plug my new H/U to an old computer power supply to test it out and pre-program it. I hacked a few files & changed the splash screen.

    Today I received my goods from Tacotunes. Instead of using the provided crimp caps, I opted for my old and proved method: solder and heatshrink. I found it gives a much cleaner touch.

    And here's a pic of the h/u mounted into the dashkit.

    A nice little touch from the folks @ Tacotunes, lovely !!!

    Sub'd, it's a start for now man!, but I've gotta ask what are some future upgrades/mods you have planned?

    I am thinking of a 3 in suspension lift, wheels & tires, some homemade custom fab (rock sliders, bed structure). Maybe a front & rear bumper could be nice too.

    My gameplan is to take my time, do my research and ensure it will be trouble free.
