    Fueled her up, and changed the oil out the other day..she needs a bath, but there's too much snow/ice on the grounds so it would defeat it's purpose of being clean.

    Nothing technically, but I ordered a bunch of stuff and will have some before and after pics and a lot done next week. Ordered:

    1. KMC Skitch wheels 20X8.5, +35 offset, black.
    2. Bilstein 5100 adjustable front shocks (will be set to 1.75" to retain some rake).
    3. General Grabber HTS 275/60/20 XL (33") tires. Not very aggressive, but better MPG.
    4. Clarion powered under-seat subwoofer, fairly tame, but I'm not planning on having a RAVE in my truck (see stereo specs in sig).
    5. 170 degree camera which will be mounted in front and run to head unit (keeping stock rear camera in mirror).
    6. OTRATTW custom "front camera" switch, amber/red.

    It wasnt too bad. Let me ask you, do you still have the factory brake control wire harness in your glove box?

    To pull the little cubby out, just grip it with your fingers or thumbs in the cig lighter holes and give it a pull. It just pops out. I hadto get extra wire to make an eextension between the p3 harness and the factory brake control harness.

    When it comes to grounding it, the factory ground is too small. Its not enough. So I connected the units ground to the factory AND behind the kick panel to a factory ground spot. You cant miss it when you take the kick panel off.

    The tricky part is mounting it. If you dont mind it sticking out a little more than normal it is a little easier. But I wanted it further back so I trimed the metal braket that comes with it and flipped it so the little bolts I used mount on the bottom of the cubby. Also you will need to make a small opening in the cubby for the wiring.

    Clear as mud?

    I bought my 2010 on 1/12/14 so far I've added a Bak-flip bed cover, an Alpine head unit with Nav and a backup camera.

    I was surprised that the truck didn't come with a backup camera. It has the SR5, TRD off-road and towing packages. Oh well it was only an extra 80 bucks to add in a camera. Ohhh also added a Code Alarm remote start for those extra cold mornings. Those days make me really miss Calif.

    Strange. I thought all TRD's came with the backup camera

    I too, just added a alarm/remote start...it's great for these winter days and will pay off in the summer too ...I enjoy CA, but CO better...too many anti firearm hippies out there :D

    Unfortunately Colorado is getting as bad. Too damn many hippies moving there trying to screw things up. At least y'all were able to recall two of those jerks.

    I'm a firm supporter of the Second and glad to be living in a very firearm friendly state. No waiting period, registration, mag bans or any other of that liberal BS.

    We have statewide pre-emption, my CCW is very widely accepted and I can acquire all the NFA goodies I can afford.

    And yes the remote start is nice for the hot n humid dog days of summer as well.

    Nope, you dont need to. After you make the jumpers to extend the wires, and run the wire behind the dash, just connect the ground and plug the harness Into the brake control plug behind the same kick plate where you ground. Its a little white plug near the top of that kick plate. Sometimes the factory has it taped over or hiding behind other wire. But its there.

    Thanks Truckytruck. the hood is functional some what. It is the factory hood. i had a good friend of mine install the scoop. i actually got it from a 1999 Subaru Legacy Station wagon. he cut the whole in my hood and welded in the subaru scoop. with some welding and lot of patients you would think this hood was factory. actually i think Toyota should do something like this. give the truck character, like the tacomas. I get alot of compliments on it. even under the hood he mad it look really nice. i havent made it fully functional yet but i mostly wanted it for just the looks. There isnt much out there for aftermarket hood and of coarse they all seem to be fiberglass which I am not a fan of. Plus i like my stuff to be a little different than everyone elses when i can. If i can answer anymore questions for you just shout. Thanks again
