    So I got my truck back in 2011 on New Year's Day.

    Here's my list of mods:
    Rockford P3 Shallow 10" mounted behind driver side back seat
    Rockford 300W mono channel amp
    Alpine deck
    Hella 500FF 35W HID
    Bamf Light bar
    130W KC Slim lites 6"
    Relentless Fab bed rack rails
    265/70/17 Trail Grapplers 10ply
    Fog Light anytime mod
    Full OME kit with 886 and Dakars
    TC UCA's
    BAMF Sliders with pickup (on the way) :)

    Future Mods:
    Brute Force Hybrid Front
    Brute Force HC Rear with tire carrier, rotopak can carrier, and hi lift carrier
    Some type of topper

    2009 TRD Sport 4x4 DLCB with 49k miles. I haven't done too much to it yet, but I'll try to go in order. First was my stereo.

    It's an Alpine deck (the 138BT I believe)
    I also have a Rockford 300W mono channel amp and a P3 shallow 10" (I'll get pictures soon)
    Next came the light bar from BAMF (I love this product and would highly recommend it.)
    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1366006429.079107.jpg
    Then some Hella 500ff converted to 35W HID that I got on the forum
    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1366006520.234225.jpg.
    I put this behind the stock grill, until I could afford a new one.
    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1366006562.840259.jpg.
    Following that I got some new tires. My old tires were highway tires and didn't really grip anything, so I got some Nitto Trail Grapplers M/T 265/70/17.

    Went out and had some fun in them. I've gotten stuck multiple times with them, and even had to get pulled out by a raptor once...

    About a week after I got my grillecraft I also got some KC slimlite 6" 130W. Damn these things are bright! Threw them on the light bar between my HIDs and I loved it.

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1366007067.504575.jpg
    Following that was the Relentless Fab bed bars. These things are great and I love them. I got them to put ski racks onto but they're very versatile. Thru on a bed liner onto them to prevent them from rusting.

    Then put some skis on them.

    Finally I've relocated my KCs with Relentless's hood mount

    Next down the road I'd like to do full OME with Dakars and UCAs along with BAMF sliders and Brute Force rear bumper and front hybrid. Thanks for reading!

    Off to a good start.
    You're going to love the Emu.
    I would go with sliders & skids then bumpers (that's what I'm doing) instead of sliders & bumpers.

    So yesterday I put on my lift:)
    I went with a full OME kit with 886's up front and new dakars in the rear. I also got TC UCA's. While installing it I decided to keep my sway bar off, just to see the difference. Well here are some pictures from the install and afterwards.

    Tightening down the 886's up front

    I think my buddy was more excited than I was at the moment...
    [​IMG]

    Well we got the fronts done, and while the wheels were off we plasti dipped them

    Then onto the back.

    These dakars were heavy! But the ride is so nice :)

    And the end result
    [​IMG]

    Did a little wheeling this morning on base and found these cool little mounds to climb. Having the lift definitely helped out so I wouldn't scrape my rear bumper.

    Thanks! Relentless Fab made those. I think they are called CB hood mounts. Something along that line. Erik makes a great product. I sprayed some primer then bed liner on them so they dont rust. I love them.

    Eric's CB hood mounts (specify right & left). Hood opens just fine with an antenna or lights on them.

    I think they're $21 for one but cheaper for 2..... He has them on his website. Under Tacoma it's on the 2nd page

    Hmm I'm not sure. I don't have them before the lift but I can do them post lift. Which measurements do you want?
