    A little of this and a little of that.
    Looks great so far!

    How well does your wireless charger work? I’m thinking of doing this mod too.

    It works very well. Only problem is my phones slides in left hand turns. I'm going to devise something to keep it in place.

    My 2018 Sport has the Premium audio with integrated navigation (9 speaker system no OE sub). I didn't need my stereo to be the loudest badass on the street (I lived those days in high school). I just wanted a little more thump and sound from the current stereo.

    My dealer had a special on a pair of 10" subs, a custom carpeted box, a 2000w amp, a LC2i and a UR1 controller. I had it installed back in November and man, what a difference. I didn't take pics after the installation, but I will when I take the seat out again.

    Came out great! I did the tyger low profile roll up that came out pretty nice

    Thank you. It was a hard decision. We use the bed a lot and haul dirt bikes, so the cover needed to be functional for those purposes.

    Finally got around to using Plasti Dip for the third brake light. Four heavy coats on the perimeter, two light coats in the middle where the brake light and cargo lights shine.

    Thanks! It is sure nice and sounds pretty darn good considering. I am pleased with the Toyota system that's in there.

    Raised Bilstein 5100s to top setting, added two @BOSS4x4s shims to the driver's side and one to the passenger's side. Also installed the @BOSS4x4s rear shackles on the top setting and installed Bilstein 5100s in the rear. Here are before and after pictures...

    These are good lift pics of height options with 5100's. I was going to go with the Boss kit, I really liked it. Ended up getting Fat Bob's 5100 coilover kit because of the adjust ability without removing them. How's the ride at the top setting? That was my only concern. Truck looks great.

    The OEM stereo sounds really good now with the products that were installed. The bass is really nice and thumps. The Truxedo Pro X15 is serving it's purpose. I tow/haul dirt bikes and wanted something that was a roll up but not too bulky. It works for me.
