    After a night of following two Chevy z71 4x4s with 35" mud grapplers. Where they would spin my PreRunner just crawled right through the mud.. Made me proud.

    New speaker box sounds much better. Doesn't do well with high notes but it gets deep and LOUD. Which is really what I wanted..

    Dual amps! One pushes my alpine door speakers and tweeters and the other pushes the sub. The one on left is 600 watts and the one on the right is 400.

    Put an led strip on the inside of the lid of the tool box and put it on a switch for when it opens and closes. Lights up the box, the bed, and about a 20 foot half circle around the back of the truck.

    Going to update a bit.. did a few lighting mods recently, halos in the fog lights and perimeter lighting. Halos and perimeter lights come on with remote unlock/open door or via switch. the halos were pretty simple to do and cost less than 50$ to do the entire install. they are multi-color RGB LEDs, come with a remote to change the colors, brightness, and strobe/fade modes. If anyone is interested i took pics and will do a write-up on it..
