    looks like some nice shoes on those wheels too.
    My truck is a black Rock Warrior, I actually think the gunmetal works pretty well. I can see how Black wheels would look hot on a silver truck though.

    Can't wait to see installed pics. :)

    @RFerre6 What did you use to restore the headlights? Mine could use it. Yours look good.

    I ripped the radio out of my truck, and started the process of re-wiring everything.

    Yaesu FTM-400XDR is now mounted in the back under the passenger's side rear seat.
    The Battery is a 12Amp Hour AGM battery.
    There is a blue box under the control head that's a DC/DC UPS, that will switch to the AGM when the truck is turned off by way of a voltage switch.
    I'm still waiting on the Microphone extension kit to come in. Tomorrow after work I'll install the other radio which is also going behind the rear seats.

    behind the front seats, on each side in the back, under the carpet is a 1.25" grommet going from inside the cab to under the truck inside the frame. On the driver's side this is about 6" or so ahead of the gas tank.

    All the coax enters/exits the truck through these grommets.

    I took the grill cover off. Starting to prep for operation ‘zero chromes given’. And put a cheesy seat back protector on the front seats so my kids stop kicking dirt all over them.

    Just bought my Tundra a month or two ago and forgot to post it when I join the forum. Since then I put on newer rims (had a dent in mine, got a set of 07 TRD Pro for 75 on CL, and took off the running boards

    Ran a whole lot of copper around the truck..... Down to only two tasks. Hanging the Icom IC-7000 Mic, and Putting an PL-259 on the end of my HF Antenna's Coax.

    The Sony went in about a month ago. Work I did the last two days was re-installing the Yaesu FTM-400XDR (control head under the Passenger Temp control) . And the Icom IC-7000 (control head by the arm rest.)

    Sony XAV-AX100

    I got stage one of operation chrome-be-gone complete. Next on the list is grill surround and bumper hoop. No need to worry about the rear bumper cause that thing is about to be ripped off too:bananadance:

    Saturday, drove a new Tundra to see if I should get one - nothing wrong with my 08 at all. So almost did it, I can afford it. But dam my truck is free....so the changes begin.

    Detailed interior:
    New Stereo - kept the JBL speakers and sub for now but it sounds great and love having Apple Carplay.
    New mats - Weather tech

    Next up:
    New grille inbound
    New Headlights inbound
    New Tonneau cover inbound
    New Tail lights on hold until the new Spyders come out in June

    Truck is a 2008 Limited, JBL, loaded for that time period - currently at 183K, had a radiator put in in it, front wheel bearings, rear wheels bearing. Got the brakes figured out with some slotted and drilled which for two years have not warped, lifetime warranty on the pads.

    So its been a while but I am fairly certain we used Powerstop rotors, and 100% we used Akebono Pads.

    Sweet. Considering a drain and refill at this time, 130k miles, not sure if tranny has been serviced. Thinking of refilling with Amzoil. Would you think ok to mix? Most likely WS in service.
    Thoughts?

    Amsoil is supposed to be compatible for just a partial fill. They say that all their products are compatible with conventional and most other synthetics. And it meets the Toyota WS specs.

    I planned on installing my TRD CAI today but the one I got wasn't in the condition I expected, so it's being replaced.

    I started wrapping the interior trim with carbon fibre. It’s fair from perfect being my first vinyl wrap attempt. I bought lots so I will rewrap after more practice of easier prices in the truck. Also added some red accents.

    Not that anyone can tell under all this dirt and pollen- but I blacked out the door handles and mirrors. Also paints the hooks red.
    Gotta get the skid plate back on soon!
