    I just wanted to make a thread (for me to remember mostly), a picture dump, and list/wishlist of what I want to do with my truck. This will be my page to add. And as always, Im reading and learning as I go along. Thanks to the many that have already helped me along the way.

    Picked up this mint 2010 ACLB Off Road from the original owner (@AR15xAR10) on 9/3/2015, with 35k miles, all dealer receipts, etc. TRD gen 2 intake, TRD exhaust, trifold bed cover, Weathertech front mats and window guards. This was going to be my truck for hauling my motorcycle around. I just wanted something that was very reliable and this was it. Since the low miles, Ill be keeping this forever too (I hope. My track record has not been in that favor). And hopefully not mod it too much.

    But after reading a few people's builds, and the holidays passed, all the sales started, and I got bit hard by the mod bug..

    This is what was replaced by the Taco. 2004 Honda Element, lowered, painted Anvil , cragar D-window wheels, etc.. (i guess I wanted a jeep, but honda reliability haha) :

    Original post updated with link. Here it is installed. My phone/gps fits in the grips. Its spring loaded, so it can adjust to almost anything. And there are different attachments too

    Got a question, and didnt want to make another thread just yet. Im planning on buying these and hopefully wiring them up to my stock fog light harness/switch (just so I dont need to do any extra wiring). My question is, would the combination of these work together, and not blow any fuses/overload my factory wiring harness?

    I like it and I kind of dont. When its open, it feels less stable. Like the welds aren't as strong as they could be. But I reached out to Tyler at Pelfrey and he is sending me some extra gussets, to add to the stability. I was looking at Matt's truck (but he has the high clearance) and his feels more stable. Might be because the high clearance has more braces.

    I think its at a slight angle to help the wheel stay on better. If it is angled, its not much

    Ill get some more pictures for you soon, but I do think it is slightly angled

    On another note, I ordered this bluetooth adapter so I can listen to Pandora through my speakers in the truck. Decent quality (for $14 from Amazon) but either Im going deaf (from my loud motorcycles) or my stock speakers are blown. Anyways, I set it up, and the sound from it, is less than my radio. Id have to have it at max volume to be able to hear it with the windows open. Yes I checked the sound check, and volume on my phone.. So after getting frustrated with this, I decided to order some new front door speakers to see if that will help.

    I ended up ordering Pioneer TS-A1676R 6 1/2" speakers. Reviews were good from Crutchfield, and they come with all the mounting hardware that I will need. 3 Way speaker, 320 watt max. Ill see.
    And I will be installing my DIY leather arm rests. This will be a busy install.
