    Hey all!

    Name is Joshua. I recently purchased a 2011 Black TRD Double cab 4x4. I'm no stranger to building things and modifying anything. And I have started on this truck.

    Here we are with about 600 miles on the Odometer in Redmond, Oregon.

    I like the mountain bike, so I picked up some brackets at REI, and the Uni-strut nuts from the hardware store and cut them to to fit the bed.

    And my most recent addition to the truck and all other outdoor endeavors...

    Garmin Montana 650 hardwired. I have the entire state of Oregon in a 24k topo map in the truck now. It's mounted to the Panavise mount.

    Looks great bud! I never thought of using uni-strut nuts for the track in the bed. I'll have to look into that.

    Uni-strut nuts work great. I used them for installing these in my bed rails.

    Pull the AC controls, and there are three screws inside, everything fits nice and tight and clean.
