    New To the Site. Not much as far as major mods go. Below is what I have done so far. Not sure some would even be considered MODS.

    My next MOD project is 1. Finding a reasonably priced 15 TRD Pro grill insert 2. Verifying fit and installing a Alpine Compact 8” sub under driver seat.

    Installed CT Sounds 6x9's and Rockford-Fosgate tweeters in the front doors and CT Sounds 6.5's in the rear doors. Pretty happy with the bass from the stock head unit.

    As plug-n-play as speakers can be. Had to use the Metra 82-8146 speaker adapters behind the speaker itself to hold it to the door and the Metra 72-8104 speaker connecters to convert from the factory wiring to the two wire leads that the speaker needed, but install is straightforward when it's all combined.

    I would put a folded towel on the cab and tape some pool noodles to the ladder and tie that sucker down tight and ride.

    get pool noodles, and cut them down the middle then you can put them around the frame of the ladder. Badda Bing Badda Boom! Thats what I do with my canoe.

    I wouldn't strap it too tight. I did that with a kayak and push the roof in. I had to use a pulled to pop it out.

    yeah... I have a couple ladder size dents on my roof too... Firm, but gentle...

    But I laid a folded blanket down under the ladder so it wouldn't scratch anything.

    Then Sunday I washed, clay bar, polished out some of the scratches, and plan to wax today or tomorrow.

    Ordered ext Fox shocks for the rear to replace the leaky 5100s from @HeadStrong Off-Road
