    Hey All,

    Finally decided to put together a basic build thread to keep track of the truck/trips/and general questions.

    In Summer '17 I acquired my Silver '17 Tacoma TRD Off Road. This is my summer fly fishing and adventure rig, winter skiing vehicle, and daily driver.

    - Borla 40665 Muffler

    Lighting
    - Fogs: Baja Designs Squadron Sport in Amber Driving/Combo Pattern (Amazed at the output by these. Wanted something to help with winter storms and deer spotting).
    - Low Beams: Auxbeam F16 LED
    - High Beams: NAO LED
    - "Raptor Style" Grill Lights: big thanks to a local member for a help with wiring these.

    Appearance
    - OEM TRD PRO "Bro" Grill (because chrome sucks)

    OV Custom Tune Package purchased 10/16/18. I really hope this lives up to the hype! I'm sure it will.

    A couple of updates.
    - Picked up a set of OEM SEMA Rims used for a good-deal. They had Duratrac's on them, but needed replacing. Back to AT3W in 265/70/17.
    - Painted the bumper caps with bedliner. The painted caps were getting dinged up with rocks.
    - Tinted the raptor lights. Thought the front was getting too busy with bright orange lights.
    - Replaced the OEM Mudflaps with a set of Universal Rally Armor. Drilled my own holes and used zip ties. I am rubbing on them... need to figure out what do.
    - Debating whether I need to get some UCAs. I find the truck wandering sometimes.

    Updated pics from the first time out on the bikes this season.

    Found a set of water rotopax with bed rail mounts for super cheap on my local forum and figured they'd be great for camping and storing extra water during the summer.
    Cleaned them up and re-painted and they look pretty good. I thought the bed rail mount would allow the tonneau cover to close. Unfortunately, the "nubs" on the the tonneau hit the rotopax. Anyone seen a solution for mounting them even lower?
