    Roo guard and tail lamp grills, pistol safe, console safe, emergency lights and Big Sky overhead gun racks at the same time.
    The guard should have been lower. I dinged the front lics. plate area thanks to our friendly snow plow driver`s berm. It does wrap around enough to nudge open a gate.
    The TRD Off Road came with what the dealer had added. It was his ride `till 7,200 mls.
    He switched to a Tundra, which he needs like a hole in the head. But he sold it to me for less than he had in it, and had to replace a topper lock, N/C.

    You got the gun rack installed overhead? I remember when you were trying to figure out a way to mount it -- do you have pics of the final product?

    I spoke with TRD and Big Sky. On mine there is a 3" steel header running along the roof / bulkhead convergence.
    No, I do not have a pic of mine. But this is what the front looks like. The two gun is to the rear and not in the way at all in the access cab. I don`t think one could mount a traditional Electro Lock to the floor board and dash. Of course there is a lot of ingenuity on the forum. I wouldn`t put it past `em.

    hey dan, if you have a legit copy of windows, you can go grab one of their "power toys" called "image shrinker" off of their website. Just search on their and then you can shrink pictures by right clicking on the file. It's very simple(and free) If you CMD. 1/4" Steel plate.

    You can get Picasa from Google for free and it will resize (and a few other things).

    Or paint.net (www.getpaint.net). It's a free equivalent to Photoshop.

    Everyone's photoshop isn't free? :eek:

    I like the MS program because you can highlight multiple files and right click and resize. It's actually a slim program, which I wasn't expecting from MS.

    Yeah. I think Picasa can group resize, but I'm not sure. Most of the time I upload to Photobucket and they auto resizes as they're uploaded.

    Actually, I have the programs. The need comes up so infrequently that I never learned to use them. But thanks all.

    Replaced the quickly worn OEM Firestones (P215) with Toyo HT's (P235). It is a small thing I know, but it gave it a little lift and, most importantly, it looks more like a truck.

    Oh yeah, and it corrected the speedo error.

    The first mod I did to my truck was adding these really expensive trash cans that hang on the back of the front seats. I got them at Wal-Mart and let me tell you I thought that I would have to go to the dealership to have them installed. :mad: You see the velcro straps (very high end) were very long, so I had ended up having to wrap them around the posts until they were able to meet and hold the trash can up. All in all I am very satisfied with them. :D
