    I guess I have done enough to warrant creating my very own build thread :D

    I started with an 05 Prerunner... hydroplaned into a interstate median fence and they totaled it on me :(

    So my mission was to find another 4 door LB Prerunner with decent mileage on it, that all changed when I saw that Toyota introduced the mag grey. :eek:

    I drove 300+ miles to another state and snatched up this 09 4WD SB

    So I put in my Pioneer Audio/Video/Camera system from the wrecked truck :
    I ran a hot switch for the camera too this time:

    Then I had to put my horns back on! And BHLM too-

    Then I hooked up with my good friend Brandon at Avid and scored the light bar and snatched up a set of RBP steps - colormatch painted everything :

    Then the Satoshi bug bit me and I combo'ed that with the grillcraft lower, again color matching all.

    Then I made use of the AUX port in the front by running my own USB port through it, I made it 'retractable' rather than flush mounting so that that certain special person that often rides with me had some slack rather than bending up my port or her USB drive:

    You can pull almost 2 feet of wire out and retract it without it looking too trashy

    Then last week I got my DynoMax installed, just the muffler, single in/single out, attached to factory pipe rather than dumped.

    Not a big change in sound, as others have documented, but it does sound good at lower RPMs and I feel like there is a little more throttle response- too early to tell for sure. This was the perfect exhaust set up for me as I had the TRD intake from my 05 already installed, and I had no interest in a flowmaster 40 type sound or investing in MagnaFlow.
    Got the muffler off Amazon for $60 and welded on for $40

    Put some Hella 500 black magics on the avid bar and ran a factory switch too:

    Thanks man- so far so good since sadly I find myself in more parking lots than hauling scenarios. I'll have to get an extender sometime.
