    Installed my new Bilstein 5100 struts and rear shocks on today. The ride feels good. Its stiffer, but handles the rough bumps well from daily driving around Memphis area roads. I hope they handle well off road as they do on rough roads around here.

    That is one pretty engine bay!

    I redid my truck bed cover with a truck covers usa rollup, and put some rail bars on. Only bars I could find that I liked the shape of were CHROME. Put em on to see how they look, trying to decide what to do with em next. Paint them grey, or black, or plastidip... Leaning towards painting them black - but the toyota auto color black. Anyhow here she is-

    Thanks fam. They really set of the engine compartment. Glad I got that stock intake outta the way so you can see the valve covers. LOL

    Heh, thanks man. Actually you can't see due to that being a mediocre cellphone pic, but the pollen is so bad right now wash your car and leave it outside for an hour - it will have a yellow tint when you look again. No joke. That roll up cover looked so pretty when I first got it, powder coated aluminum, now it has the dust on it - ugh. Reminds me I should finish cleaning my garage so I can get her back inside.

    Thanks bro. I really like it. Once installed, it really cleans up the engine bay. I only took like a 4 mi drive to make sure there were no CEL's following the install. I did get on it once and the sound from the intake is immediately noticeable....that sucker is loud. Doubt there'll be much in the way of a performance gain, but a little more throttle response is fine with me. I got it to maximize performance, reduce clutter and weight. Mission accomplished. ;)

    Picked it up from the stealership after getting an oil change, tires rotated and a new AC / Heater fan. No more "chirping" sound from the vents!!!

    Ditto. Exactly what I was going to say. Loud (in a good way), more room in the engine bay for possible other mods, and weight loss.

    Just went to my local home depot picked up some wire cable and a lock so I can add a little security to my bed when I go tailgating. Pretty cheap too about $40 bucks total. Just wrap it through everything and lock it back up to the d-ring lot easier than replacing the handle on the truck bed plus I keep my back up camera.

    As promised....

    Also installed a Rosen head unit and Sirius SCC1.
    Install was pretty painless, unit is okay, going to be a bit of a learning curve as any new HU is.

    Trying to activate the Sirius and I can't get it to channel 184... all I'm getting is 255. Drove it around for a half hour, not sure what's up.
