    I’m interested in hearing what mods/accessories I should know about! Driver side seat has a slight tear so I’m in the market for seat covers. Also is there a CarPlay radio that fits this thing?

    Most of the aftermarket double din units have Carplay. Pioneer and Kenwood being in the top 2. Check out Crutchfield......many options available.

    How do you plan on using your truck?

    Air bags and a 46g Transferflo tank were top of my list.

    The “maintenance” mod. Fluids, filters, washing, detailing and waxing etc. wiper blades, spare tire pressure check. Appears to have some mods already with a wheel and tire package and some graphics. The chin bumper is a matter of taste, could delete it. Lighting can be improved on those models. Updated headlights and fogs are a great functional upgrade.

    Welcome from LA (Lower Alabama)! It's already a very nice looking truck. I second the "maintenance mods" vote.

    Nice Double Cab! Do the “maintenance mods” as noted above. I will add for more V8 rumble a dirty deeds exhaust, I have the 8” and love it! He can weld the resonator to the muffler weldment, just ask him. High flow engine air filter.
