    Well boys, I've had my truck for 3 months now and I've had the chance to get a few things done to it to make it my own.

    I ordered the TRD Exhaust, Roof Rack, and a few emblems from trdparts4u out of Dallas in August. Most recently I bought the TRD CAI off ebay and I was able to get it installed this weekend.

    And a few other small things
    - XM Antenna out the 3rd Brake Light
    - Scan Gauge on top of the Steering Column
    - The 10 sec. Tap Light mod.

    A good sound system is next on my hit-list, thinking of installing a Pioneer F700BT, but still think I need to do a bit more investigating. Oh ya....hood struts too.....:D

    A few pics of my progress.....

    Keep it coming. We all love to see upgrades! Personalize that baby and make it your own. Looks good. Beautiful background too. Very green like the money you're going to spend. Have fun.

    Picked up a 3 LED tap-light with an adhesive backing and stuck it in the console. One of those things barely worth mentioning....since it took 10 sec.....but 10 sec well spent. :D
