    Here's my truck the day that I brought it home. The previous owner had already done a couple of mods but nothing compared to what I plan to do with this.
    image.jpg
    image.jpg
    image.jpg

    To start off it's got a TRD supercharger, an iron cross front bumper painted to match with an 8000 pound warn winch in it. Some Dick Cepek wheels with 32 inch Goodyear Wrangler tires.
    image.jpg

    So you could say that I got a pretty good foot in the door for building a sweet truck. But the mods from the previous owner were just I head start, I hadn't even have the truck for a full week before I started doing mods of my own and buying new truck stuff.

    My very first addition was this Rightline gear truck tent that I picked up from a local vendor for a sweet deal.
    image.jpg

    Shortly after that I Debadged the truck and redid everything in high gloss black.
    image.jpg

    Not too long after that I got a sweet craigslist deal on an "almost new" roll n lock tonneau cover.

    Bought a set of LED bed lights with the remote off of @mattgecko
    image.jpg

    Got really lucky and ended up getting first dibs on a sweet Alpine stereo with the JBL and steering wheel button interfaces off of another TW member.
    image.jpg

    Took advantage of Black Friday deals and bought myself some icons and LR UCAs
    image.jpg

    Got a prinsu roof rack with 40 inch light bar cutout from @336

    That was all cool but then I thought it was time to start throwing some more "performance oriented" mods onto the truck.
    I started by picking up on a pillar gauge pod regardless of all the people saying it was too "ricer"
    image.jpg

    After that I spent about 2 months procrastinating what gauges to buy. I finally ended up deciding on your average run-of-the-mill AEM wideband O2 and a custom-made boost/vac gauge from speedhut.
    image.jpg
    All put together it looks a little something like this (I'll get a better picture later)
    image.jpg
    Swapped out the dome light and book lights with LEDs
    image.jpg
    Installed sound deadener with the help of @3378jakesr5
    image.jpg
    image.jpg

    Did the dash light mod with the help of a couple other members

    @Coupe battery hold down

    URD 2.85 pulley has me sitting at 7.5-8 pounds of boost

    Another good thing about putting together a build page is that I can put together a list of my future mods

    New front bumper!!!!

    Long travel front????
    Shackle flip

    A set of NST lightweight pulleys (if I can find them anywhere)

    Weather tech rain guards
    On board air
    Smoked headlights
    New diamond plate door sill protectors
    Bushwhacker fender flares
    Color matched grill

    And probably much much much more

    I did figure out my shocks are my limiting factor in the rear. If I can fit 14inch shocks in mine I'll sell you mine and my extended break lines for the rear.

    Cool, that might work out. I'm planning on buying my icon coil overs later this month. How many miles do you have on them?

    I could probably find it if I did a little bit of research. But I know that it's a lot. That's why I'm planning on doing the 700 pound Springs with my icon coil overs

    Works for me, do you think those would go well with the All-Pro 3 inch leaf pack I'm planning on buying?
