    Yup. Thing is awesome. Wish it had bluetooth, but other than that for $150 I can't complain. I made a thread here when I installed it.

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/au...yet-decent-double-din-option-couple-pics.html

    They're the Body Armor ones that require drilling. The Westin ones are nicer, but I snagged these for $50 on eBay. Since I've already put about 100 holes in my truck, the drilling wasn't an issue for me, haha. These here:

    Those look identical too the westin ones. The westin ones did require some drilling.

    Took my bumpers off to prep for paint/stain. Pulled apart my Hella converted hids to hopefully fix the chicken feet. Finished my grill in prep for lights to go behind, satashi type.

    Tomorrow hopefully I'll finish the lights and figure a way to mount them behind the grill. I had then mounted before but didn't really like it.

    Also got my expo leafs so those will be going on next week. Then gonna relocate the socks and might as well box the frame while I'm at it. Though i doubt that will happen any time soon.

    Not exactly. I was in the zone today and wasn't to be bothered by anyone or anything let alone taking pictures.

    I actually used the clock housing so I didn't have to fabricate a new backing plate or anything. Just took the clock apart, pulled all the guts out and then cut out a rectangle out with a dremel big enough to fit both switches in the clock faceplate. Then cut another rectangle in the clock backing plate so the switches could pass through.

    It wasn't hard, just a lot of measuring. I only had one shot to get it right so I measured a ton of times. To make things a little easier, I made a stencil out of a manila folder first and then traced that onto the faceplate.

    Right on. I figured you would have to make a new backing plate, so that's neat. I wired up my switches into the blanks by the 12v outlets, but it's kind of a reach if I need to turn off my lights quickly.

    Look at build!
    That's why I'm putting not so important things like Rock lights that won't get used everyday down there! & important stuff on my aluminum panel in the vacant radio pocket space. Here's how I did my clock switch panel for in cab winch controls
