    It all began with saying goodbye to my 2012 TRD OFF Road Superwhite taco. She treated me well for 80k, but I wanted a new build. And then this happened.

    IMG_4291.jpg

    Traded up. SR5 4x4 CM 5.7 38gal

    My goal is to turn her into a SEMI trd pro.
    Here she is all stock

    IMG_4332.jpg

    First and most necessary mod.... trd pro grill. I have no love for chrome

    IMG_4379.jpg
    IMG_4380.jpg

    Next up...... BADGES and tint and Morris caps. Went 5% on the front, 20% on the rear, 30% on the bed window and a dark ass strip on the windshield. If a cop gets behind me, he will see through the lighter tint in the rear and not pull me over :)

    IMG_4439.jpg
    IMG_4442.jpg

    Now for the most proud mod so far, bye bye chrome bumper ends. I have a how to layer out in this thread.

    https://www.tundras.com/threads/how...per-caps-2017-and-reinstall.9858/#post-160936

    But the after affect is

    IMG_4876.jpg

    Took the ends off myself and had them dechromed (140$) then blasted and powdercoated (160)

    Came out to a near perfect match.

    More to come

    Added some trd pro suspension and some coach builder gear

    Took some time and painted the stock running boards with gloss black spray paint. We will see how long it will hold

    I love RCSB's. I need a CrewMac for my family, but the regular cabs are sweet looking!

    Can't wait to see the build.

    Once I get some paint correction done, I’m taking my old badges and making some of this happen. Normally I despise chrome, but the wheels really set the tone for the truck so I got to roll with it. It’s not a 4x4, that photo is a joke.

    Final products of bumper powder coating. Much like paint, not all powder coating is the same color since it’s made in batches. Still happy overall with turnout

    started an audio build and covid gave me some time to move on it. 3-4 cubic feet on a 15” FI Audio SSD rated for 1500w. And a MB Quart 1500 to compliment it. Tuned to 34 HZ

    running all 1g wiring. CCA wiring this time, but OFC is going on the Crewmax.

    1653E6F8-9320-485F-A890-A73EA2D6DD2A.jpg

    Installing an ALPINE ILX 650. Installing dual cameras as well. Did not get a wiring harness. Just winged it. Used a diagram from modifiedlife.com. Only thing I noted on the 2008, there’s a slight difference on the speaker wires setup for a regular cab. Just played around with combos until I got it right.

    COVID boredom. Still waiting on SUB to be built, cameras to show up, run cables for cameras, few misc electrical, and carpet box.

    Hopefully my patience will pay off. TBC

    Got some more goodies. Front and rear cameras and the sub arrived

    just got to carpet box and wire amp and speaker up. And figure out what to tap the front camera into for power.
