    Wow! Quite the amount of work added to it in 2 years!

    Not sure yet but whichever I go with is going to have to be modified to work with my drop-bracket lift most likely. :\

    I haven't towed yet but I did load up the rear with ~300lbs on top of what's already on the rack always; the rack, RTT, and other accessories add a constant ~200lbs. It's definately sagging a little in the rear. However, that's to be expected for the leaf spring packs' "real state". I have some Coachbuilder +3 shackles and Hellwig helper springs in my garage that I'll eventually install to make up for the constant load I carry around.

    Installed my RK Sport ram air fiberglass hood today -- while I was at it, I got the SDHQ A-pillar light mounts on for future use. The hood looks out of place because it's so clean. I'll have to get it dirty this weekend so it matches the rest of the truck's paint job. Yes, it's a functional hood scoop; it feeds toward the intake. Yes, the hood louvers are also functional; they let heat escape out from the rear of th hood on the inside.

    Nice. Fiberglass hood works well with the stock hood dampers?

    Yup! You'd actually be fine with just one since the hood weighs less than half the OEM one.

    Got around to getting the sPod kit for the Tundra installed the other day. This will make my future electrical installs way easier. I'll probably wire only "functional" mods to the system. I have a Switch Pros kit coming in this week for all my lighting needs.

    Mounted a pair of Rigid Industries Midnight Edition Duallys with blue lenses on the SDHQ A-pillar mounts today. Also installed my Rigid grill insert on the newly-painted blue grill with another pair of Duallys. On that note, I now have a used black TRD Pro grill for sale with cosmetic damage to the paint.

    Did the rear differential breather relocate mod. Routed it upward, with enough slack for full suspension droop, toward the top of the bed. The new ARB breather is mounted behind the driver side taillight. Went a little overboard with protecting the hose but it's better to be safe than sorry.

    Not overboard.

    ..so this is happening; to be continued, completed, and unveiled soon -- very soon. It was very nerve-racking initially drilling into the roof but now that the moment has passed I have no regrets. I think I did a good enough job of keeping the holes from leaking water into the cab. I went a bit overboard, too.

    And it's done! Roof rack is installed and ready for accessories. This is more than likely the one and only Tundra with a @gobiracks rack mounted; it's a Ranger instead of Stealth. They don't make these for the truck specifically yet so I had to modify the mounts to work. First up is getting the rack's awning on, then adding a bunch of lights, a shovel mount, a traction pad mount, and finally adding some storage units. I'm anxiously waiting for the next rainy day so I can see how well I sealed all the holes in the roof -- fingers crossed!
