    Wife says "Instead of adding the stuff you want to why don't we look into selling your truck and buying a 2012 with what you want?" Ummmmmm... OK. I love the look of the TX Pro rims. Dealer told me they aren't available due to recalls. It actually took them 1/2 to research what the TX pro package was.

    Here's what I have:
    2008 DC Off-Road 42,000 miles - Indigo Ink Blue
    Roof Rack
    Tube steps
    BFG All Terrain TA KOs 265/75/16 with less than 1K
    All the options other than JBL

    Here's what I want
    Same as above but adding:
    Entune (yes, I like it)
    Leather
    TRD Cat-back exhaust
    TRD rims

    Anyone looking for a DCOR. Asking $24K.

    I'm thinking your wife is correct... How often does your wife tell you to buy a new truck???

    I imagine you will save money just adding what you want. I believe the exhaust is added at port, and I know the leather is added at the dealer. If you go your own way you could get those things much cheaper from a dedicated shop. As for entune and the rims, comparable aftermarket units are available for less than the $1900 price tag for entune, and the rims can be bought and installed independently as well.

    But hey, if you really want a 2012 more power to ya :D I wouldnt blame you!

    No bones about it, I could upgrade my truck for less but I do like the subtle changes to the interior and think the front bumper looks good. Probably the only time the wife will suggest this so might as well...
