    I bought the truck, used, in Nov 2009. Within a week I went to visit Josh (Yosh2000) and had him do a LED dash cluster mod.

    I love this truck and will probably keep it until it can't drive another rotation.


    Exterior Mods:

    - Custom made recessed mesh grill, made by me.
    - Mounted HID Hella 500 behind the grill
    - PA speaker behind grill
    - Lowered horns to lower valence
    - Trailer hitch, sporting my team
    - Rear view camera mounted flush into bumper
    - Aftermarket taillights
    - Retro HID Projector headlights
    - Mounted CB antenna
    - Blacked TRD rims
    - Hercules 285/75/16 rubbers
    - Billsteins 5100 in front @ 2.5
    - Billsteins 5100 in rear
    - Toytec 2" AAL
    - Black emblems on exterior
    - MadeInMaine custom bed side sticker
    - 13" Shorty antenna
    - OEM roof rack
    - RedTuning Hood Struts
    - TRD CAI
    - Custom bike racks


    Interior Mods:

    - Pioneer Avic x910bt CD/DVD/iPod/Navi/Bluetooth
    - Boss Bass1500 subwoofer
    - LED dash gauge cluster
    - iPod in center console
    - UltraGauge
    - CB w/ PA system
    - TRD seat covers
    - floor mats
    - Maglite holder mod
    - 20% tint all around



    Not a lot of stuff done, not tons of money. But other than the dash cluster, I did all the work myself.


    Here are some pictures:

    Cheers

    By all means, please let me know what you think.

    I do the work myself, and would much rather take the hours and pleasure of doing the work myself than to just buy and pay someone else.

    Enjoy

    Cheers

    They are holding up great. Even took them through the snow and mud the other day. They are dirty, but still all black!



    Thanks, I was going to black out the stock ones, but the flatter, raised black vinyl is great!


    I would rather take a month and do it myself, then pay someone to do it in a day.
    So much better when its done by yourself.

    email/ call Matt.

    If you want details on exactly what I got, I can get the list for you.
    Basically you have a few choices:

    -light color
    -style of shrouds (the things around the projector lens)
    -wattage

    other than that, matt helped me put together exactly what I needed. And you need to know which is your stock headlight bulb.


    ----
    Also, you are in San Diego, so if you ever want to just meet up and check out the lights close up, just let me know.

    Cheers
