    Finally finished my rear platform for the rear seats. It took longer than expected and many trips to the hardware store, but done. I did use L brackets to hold down the passenger side platform in the second pic

    I removed the lower rear seats since it is very rare that I have that many passengers. I also put allot of gear back there when I go hunting. The second pic was to show the "L" brackets used to keep the platform down, but that is the only one I have right now. I will get a better picture later when it is daylight.

    Finally got the platform completed and fridge test fitted. Overall I am happy with the way it came out, but always room for improvement once I really start using it.

    Great looking truck! I have an '06 DC SB, Indigo Ink.

    How do you like your RTT? I just bought one. Same brand. I bought the 9008 model. I was looking at installing some kind of rack system similar to yours. What kind of rack is that? It looks like a Thule. How does it mount to the bed rails? Does it mount to the track system?

    I was going to build my own, but my limited time & welding experience would probably make purchasing and installing a Thule rack, well worth the $$!

    Thanks!

    Fianlly pulled the trigger on the supercharger this week. I thought about doing it my self, but since my truck is still under warranty I had a buddy at a Toyota dealership help me out. The dealership matched trdparts4u price and good price on labor. enough of the boring stuff, here are some pics

    Saw your pic over in Live. What front bumper are you going with? I'm guessing that you'll most likely have to move the intercooler pump and make a bracket for it, FYI.

    Finall got around to updating my build and can cross another couple of mods off the list that I have been waiting for. First was my bumper that I got from another member here. Second was a 31M battery and a badass battery tray from Pelfreybilt to hold it in. Here are the pics.

    Took a little road trip to pick up my bumper and a rear for a fellow member.

    Sad, but got over it very quickly. Got rear ended leaving work by someone not paying attention. Was not a very hard impact, but hte other car (prius) had to be towed away. Bent the bumper down into the pass fender and the tow bar also. Slight frame damage, but nothing major. the first thing I thought was high clearance bumper time. Going to order a Pelfreybuilt next week when I get the insurance check. Here are some pics

    I also finally got a full size spare after almost 2 years with the original spare. I used a Yakima spare tire carrier and bolted it to the bed rails. I have seen where members have done this and it ended up cracking the side panel. I have the tire resting against my bed rack and the bracket from Yakima is pretty beefy so it is secured and weight spread out.
