    Now the real mods begin

    Installed an OME/Toytec light duty 3" lift. Affectionately known as Operation Gingerlift! Big thanks to Brunes and everyone else in Cajun Yotas that helped out

    Then began the search for rubber. Matt (Blueanimal) gave me 4 Firestone Desination MT's that he had laying around and was kind enough to let me borrow his rims until I could get them swapped over

    [​IMG]

    Added a set of Satin Black FJ Cruiser wheels with the Destination MT's

    [​IMG]

    Spidertrax 1.25" Hub Centric Wheel Spacers and BHLM
    [​IMG]

    Added my BFGoodrich KM1's and relocated my CB antenna mount

    Started my CB install tonight, going to mount it to the crossrails on the roof until I can fab up a better mount.

    [​IMG]

    - COBRA 25 NightWatch LTD Classic CB
    - FIRESTIK 3' Whip Antenna
    - DIESEL ELECTRONICS 3" Antenna Spring
    - DIESEL ELECTRONICS Mirror Mount
    - DIESEL ELECTRONICS 18' Connector Cable

    Marked off a spot on the roof rails and started drilling.

    [​IMG]

    I'm starting to think that the Toyota factory crossrails are made out of titanium, my buddy and I broke 3 drill bits trying to drill 2 holes in the damn thing. (Gives me an excuse to buy more tools)

    EDIT: Finally got the custom mounting bracket to work and was able to install it and the Firestik on the roof

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    However, since the mod gods hate me it now wants to rain and since I can't fit in my garage anymore The radio install will have to wait.

    EDIT: Finally got all the wires run, after a freak hailstorm sent me running for cover. Not realizing I had a 3' antenna on my roof I tried to drive into a garage first and ended up hiding out under an oak tree.

    This is what was hitting me
    [​IMG]

    Mounted the mic with some 3M adhesive under the rear window control
    [​IMG]

    The CB is mounted with adhesive tape next to the shifter until i get the balls to drill it in
