    A couple of months ago my wife told me that we had too many vehicles and we should sell my 1st gen Tacoma and her Civic and buy me a new truck. There was zero argument from me. I found my 2013 MGM TRD OR on Craigslist from an Army Captain in Fayetteville. I fell in love this this truck as soon as I saw it and owned it less than a week later. It already had Wet Okeole seat covers and Weather Tech floor mats. I didn't think about taking any pictures of her before I started my mods, but I found one or two that should suffice.

    Some of the first things that I did were:
    - WeatherTech Side Window Deflectors
    - UWS low profile toolbox (black)
    - Extang Express Toolbox Tonneau Cover
    - @mattgecko Bed / Hood light kits
    - @csjumper2003 LED lights for dome, map, DRL and headlights
    - @CBI Offroad Fab Rock Sliders (bought from another TW member)
    - painted the chrome grille and lower valance with black plastidip

    Most recently I have done the following mods:
    - Toytec coils
    - Toytec AAL

    - Fog Lights Any Time mode (details here: https://www.yotatech.com/forums/f11...ant-them-not-just-low-beam-headlights-236696/)
    - Ditch light brackets with lights
    - Bussman relay (thanks @Sandman614 )
    - Alpine amp and 10" Kicker sub
    - Panel switch
    - Cellphone mount
    - Glove box organizer (details here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00A5UEOLG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
    - DIY Raptor lights
    - TRD OR mountain decals (details here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XCTGNR5/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

    There's much more to come. So far, most of this would not have been possible without the expertise provided by @Sandman614 . Thank you for all of your help.

    Same bulbs, crazy that some screw on cap makes that much difference.
