    Hello. :wave:
    A new guy, just wanted to say 'HI' to everyone. Have been waiting to purchase a Tundra for over two years, and finally went ahead and got a lightly used 2017 TRD Pro. Aah, this one is going to be a money pit. Already ordered a Diamondback cover. On the list, FRAC harness, dual battery, SPOD system, rock sliders & HAM radio for now. Thank you all for posting such great info on your mods/upgrades.

    Cheers.

    I like the clean touchscreen approach of SPOD (yes, I am paying extra for it). Also, the switches can be programmed to strobe, flash or dim, which might be useful off road. Also, I did not like the mounting options for switchpro. It seems the SPOD touchscreen can be mounted with a 1" Ram Ball mount, which makes it universal and gives me more options for mounting locations. I have to also mount a Kenwood radio receiver head unit somewhere where I can reach it safely while driving, so having RAM mounting options allows me to move things around. This is of course based on my limited research.
