    Then I added the USA-Spec I-pod integrater. This was a nice piece. I can choose an album or playlist with the ipod, and change tracks with the stereo control.
    [​IMG]

    I then installed the angel eye headlights. I loved these for a while, but they started fogging up and only working when they wanted.
    [​IMG]

    Then I installed the Flowmaster dual exhaust kit and TRD cold air intake.

    I love this truck. Here it is hauling some mulch. I hauled 5 yards, 1 yard at a time, while fixing up my Dad's yard.

    Yea I added more pics but never bumped it. I'm getting bored with the lights, the passenger side has started fogging up a lot. The light out-put is good but I'm working on my bhlm with some 35 watt bixenon hid's. I also installed some Nokya 2500k fog light bulbs, I love the way they look.

    Yes if you like the way they look then do it. But seal them before installing them or they WILL fog up eventually.

    I just feel like changing the look.

    I ordered a Bestop Supertop earlier this week. The Fedex man finally showed up with it yesterday right before the storm, so I got the frame put together so I could install it today. The frame went on no problem. I went to put the cover on, and of course it doesn't fit. If I button all the snaps on the hoops, it leaves a HUGE wrinkle all the way down the top of the cover. :mad: Man I love it when shit like this happens.

    Killer silver streak build! I will soon have pretty much the exact leather seats that you have, but I'm damn jealous of that sunroof and the kenwood.

    I think the grille looks way better with the horny toyota badge than it did with no badge. I might end up doing that same grille/badge mod to mine.

    Thanks BenWA!

    I got the Bestop situation pretty much squared away. It seems Bestop packaged the wrong canvas with the tacoma 6ft bed hardware kit. Due to autopartsdealer.com's shitty customer service (they pretty much don't have any, after multiple phone calls and e-mails with no response), I contacted Bestop directly and they are sending me a replacement canvas. Top notch customer service from Bestop.

    I finally got my supertop installed but I am still waiting on the back window. New headlights with 35w HID's. Still waiting to lift the front a little more and add LR UCA's. Here is a crappy pic until I get better pics soon.
