    With the membership numbers continuing to grow, I'm surprised there are not many build threads. There are many, many great trucks on here (and I'm sure some other Toyota builds) how come you all haven't created a build thread for us to drool over and get ideas from? Let @csuviper, @Bob, or myself know if you would like to, but are having challenges with something (photo uploading, videos,
    Etc)

    Been there, done that. Quit off-roading when gas got so spendy. The money goes to more practical things, like antidepressants from not off-roading. ;)

    @matluth seems to be adding things (judging by his posts) he should definitely create one!

    I have plans now that my budget has improved. BHLM, Rear light tint mod, skid plates, ditch the nerfs for sliders, topper or tonneau, winch mount/hydraulic winch, head unit upgrade, re-locate hitch connector, CB, install my SABM kit. Plus?

    Get the build thread started! If you have before pics (before said mod xyz was done) you can always start with those too.

    The before pics are the easiest part of the whole thing. It's what comes next is tough.

    Hey wait a minute. I did do the Smart Stop mod for crying out loud. Sean knows I junked my stock crap SR5 tokicos for his TRD yellow/blues.Much better. A good start but no before/after pics of my ECM flash. HaHa . Would be nice if it wouldn't rain when I want to do something.

    I'll start one by this weekend... I sure have spent a lot already, and have take quite a few pics along the way. I had to surrender my front light bar today... condensation buildup behind the lenses. Never saw that coming from Baja Designs. They wanted to have it sent back for inspection, look it over, then decide if a fix or replacement is necessary. Needless to say I wasn't too happy. I'll be getting some free stuff though for dealing with that???

    You should start a Pro thread. Not that many and you have done some cool upgrades. (You know, there's a guy in Dubai who can do the ultimate mod. See Sean's Pro thread)

    Hook up with an Arab Princess. After all you got a nice ride . Although lottery might be better odds.

    Now your talking. OooRah!! She is already here too!

    By the way. Anybody install a Auburn Gear LS ? If so, do you like it? ARB locker is out of my budget but can do the Auburn mod. I know there has been some speculation on the affect with ATrac, VSC, etc. These controls only react to the way the wheels are/are not spinning. If it is not spinning--- no reaction. The ECM does not know what is inside the rear diff. Wheel reaction only. What the wheel is doing. There are comments concerning this on Auburn's and ARB sites. Not an issue according to them. That's why I'd like to hear from someone who actually has the Auburn installed

    Those aren't cheap. There are some pretty pricey mt bikes here. A custom mt bike store in /denver was broken into recently. Only a few were taken. Thousands of dollars value. Better keep yours locked up good.

    Nice Specialized. I've been contemplating doing a MTB build for my next bike build, that or a CX bike.
