    First post here on TW. I have a 2008 4x4 double Cab long bed in silver. Bought it in May of 2008 and done a few things here and there over the past three years. Getting ready to start some more modifications this summer and fall. Here are the first pictures from when I bought it.

    First thing that was done to the truck was new shoes after the stock tires ran out. I put on 245/75/16 Kuhmo SAT's / blackwall for a more aggressive look.

    I plan on getting some Procomp wheels, a 3in lift, and 33" tires for her. I have done a couple mods that I am putting pictures up of, and I have BHLM's coming in the mail to replace the stock headlight housings.

    Not that I know off. Supply School keeps me busy and so I rarely get time to get out and look around. I did have fun with the snow Saturday before last. Got to use the four wheel drive for the first time in like four months. I am thinking about going up to Mass one weekend this February and do some easy off roading. I leave to move to Hawaii at the end of March.

    In the middle of trying to figure that out. As it looks I might have to drive to the west coast and then have it shipped from there (1 grand) otherwise it is 2 grand from the east coast.

    Removing was easy thanks to awesome threads by guys and gals here on TW

    Got a buddy over to help install, only cost a couple beers.

    After the grillcraft, headlights before HIDs.

    Laying out the wiring and ballast boxes.

    Had to remove the rubber housing and cut some to fit new HIDs into the housing. Also had to unbolt the window wash tank to get my hand down in there with new bulb.

    [​IMG]

    HIDs in and on, only bad thing is when on low beam bottom half of reflector is out, have to look at bulb again, i think there is a bulb guard i need to remove.

    Got the new blacked out headlights today in the mail. Will get them installed tomorrow and put up some pictures. Anyone got a good short antenna they would suggest?

    Got the BHLM into the truck today after having to buy a 10mm socket. That fourth bolt is a pain in the ass to get too.
