    This was 10pm on a weeknight, after a 3 hour drive to the dealership, 2 hours of paperwork, and getting ready for the 3 hour drive home at 10pm! The problem with the 2018 Cement- There are limited builds that come with the Cement color, making it very difficult to get (here in CA), plus, in order to make it functional, we needed the bench seat option, as we use the 3rd row seat in the 4Runner quite a bit.

    Ordered the rims before the truck was purchased:

    What packages and or options did you truck have? I am possibly interested in getting an '18 and want a bench seat, would also like the TRD package and 38 gallon tank. it appears in my area the only way to get the TRD package is to also have to get the SR5 upgrade package which includes the center console and removes the middle seat.

    That was exactly our dilemma- we could not do any SR5 Upgrade Packages, as it eliminates the bench, only the TRD Off Road packages. Really, to get the truck with bench seat, you bypass some bells and whistles. We still have LDA, and TSS, Tow, and Entune with Nav. It’s a trade off, but we really wanted to option for 6 people, and Cement was a MUST!

    HOLY WOW! Coming along very nicely man, very clean build.

    Having the CB antenna mounted there near the front of the bed is something I’ve toyed with doing. Any issues with signal with that placement? Also, where’d ya run the wires?

    Wires can come from drain grommets in front of bed and under cab along frame and through grommet under passenger seat foam. Installing the under seat storage helped reveal the grommet that is located under the passenger side rear seat. Cannot confirm, or deny, loss of signal or issues yet as it is very soon to tell. I may move antenna to topside of rack with pivot arm for longer range.

    Thanks for the info man, I always wondered where guys were bringing the wires into the cab from. If you notice any issues with reception tag me in the post, am looking to do a CB and HAM somewhere down the line. I have a crossover toolbox on my DC and right behind that would be the best place for those antennas.
