    Hello all, and thank you for looking at my build thread.

    I understand there are many build threads and a lot of things have already been done. This site gave me inspiration and plenty of wallet draining ideas, so I will be using this to help me document my journey.

    Hopefully I can get to the point where I can help another member out, even if its just posting a link.

    My Truck:

    2020 Tacoma TRD Sport Double cab, Quicksand - Bought it in late May 2020 with 20 miles on it.

    The first thing I did not really a mod, clay bar and ceramic coat. Came out awesome! I used Adams Ceramic kit https://www.amazon.com/gp/slredirec...4206319&id=4924110221846141&widgetName=sp_atf

    We will see how it lasts but I believe this was a great thing to do to a new Taco.

    Next came new center caps for the wheels. I really like the factory wheels, so I plan on keeping them for now. Bigger tires are sure to come in the future.

    I like the look, way better than the Toyota logo.

    I added a dash cam. I am a fan of dash cams, I was a tractor trailer driver for a long time before I got my new position in an office. One never knows what you come across. Hopefully I will be able to get some good off road footage when the time comes.

    I went with the Garmin Mini because its so small behind the mirror, cant't even notice it.

    I used the 12 pin plug for the mirror, as seen on other posts here.

    Did the rear axel vent thing! Easy mod for the piece of mind knowing water can't enter now. (unless.....)

    I bought a hood scoop led light bar, which opened up a huge can of worms....BECAUSE the switch it came with, just won't do! So doing research on the switches, I now needed a power distribution tray!
    I basically followed the instructions on the thread, learned a ton. I had almost all the tools to complete the job, so why not. Came out super clean, and ready for more upgrades.
