    Hey, come to think of it.
    Ours are red. Time to tint that...

    I like the clear look on a white T4R! Cleared out all the lights on my Supra. It looked beautiful.

    With our black ours needs a little tint.

    I put in a Kenwood DDX9705S and Maestro RR idatalink module so my wife can have CarPlay and so I can get OBD2 data if she calls me and says the check engine light came on.

    Because living in Seattle it’s hard enough finding a parking spot to fit my rig. Nice not to worry about some yahoo wacking my mirrors with their doors or as they walk past, or parking in a garage with small places and concrete walls.

    Love my Pioneer and CarPlay. Mine is also wireless so I don’t even need to pull my phone out. My “problem” was with having the dash kit painted. Where is you put your mic?

    I mounted the mic at the top of the driver's A-pillar and ran the cable behind the weatherstripping seal. I wish I could get transmission temperature to show up on the gauges.

    My budget was $400-$700 and I was looking for wireless CarPlay and a capacitive touch screen. The Alpine ILX-107 has both but no bluetooth, I think, and some reviews of the wireless connection said it takes another 15 seconds to sync with the phone. I decided to get a Kenwood with capacitive touch screen and wired CarPlay at the $500 price point. Now if I could just find a OEM fit subwoofer option. I had a JL Audio Stealthbox in a previous vehicle and it was fantastic. I'm not sure I want to drop that kind of cash on just a subwoofer box, though. They're about $700.

    Hmmm. I never look at mine. I guess it is white. I always assumed it was a red brake light.

    I’m trying to find the page for future buy ins but can’t find it. I see the build page but the guy is pretty adamant to not ask about being put on a list in the build post.

    Thanks!,
    I was a little nervous because I have seen people unhappy with how stiff the OME has a reputation for being but it is really not bad. I am running the 2887 OME with 90010 shocks in the front, the 2898 OME with the 60081 shocks in the rear, the 95PF5 trim packer, the stone guards and the SPC 25480 Uppers. My Full skids and sliders should be here any day from BudBuilt as well. I got the heavier springs etc for all that weight. Right now it is a bit rougher than what it should be when all that is bolted up. The skids, sliders, tent etc, ends up at 600 lbs roughly. I piled some buddies in to test it (about 600 lbs of people) and it is a little stiffer than stock but not bad at all. I am really happy with the set up. The KDSS fought me the whole time, ESPECIALLY on the front.

    Picture time for things completed this week, well most. Not picture is cold air intake, TRD oil cap, odyssey battery with Agency 6 battery clamp.

    Victory 4x4 blitz bumper with warn VR8-S winch and 20” light bar. Painted the shackles dark blue to match better. Also installed TRD skid plate with letters painted dark blue.

    Pulled off and painted rear silver valance black and added recovery hitch w/shackle.

    My dad and I then built a custom rear storage compartment that is level with the back seats folded flat. Only has about 4” of space (bottom to top)but works for straps, tools and recovery gear to keep it out of the way. I wanted it level so I could sleep on it if needed.

    Also got the TRD black rims installed, kept the stock tires for now.

    Great week looks good
    What fabric did you use for the drawers?
    Is there much of a gap between the TRD skid and Victory bumper?

    That was the reason I wanted to build the storage to keep things I like to have in vehicle at all times without getting in the way.

    So we pulled out the carpet and hard foam under padding. Laid the carpet back down as the bottom lining for the storage box. Built a custom wood frame cut to fit over the metal hump and around seat brackets. Made sure it all fit snug. The painted it all black, put carpet on the top pieces/lids and put it all together. The hinge is just a piano hinge and we left a small gap between the back piece and lids so that it remained smooth and flat on the top and hinge was hidden. The lids over hang about 1/2”-3/4” by the rear hatch to lift them open.

    The Lid stays we tried wouldn’t work, gonna create custom hold open with just a piece of wood you can flip up to keep lid open.

    People who think an OME rides rough afterwards must be coming from a car. I can’t possibly imagine any man who is use to a real truck thinking it would ride rough. I spent all day today driving around in my wife’s new ride doing estimates and thinking how smooth it rode and how well it handled. But I’ve never driven anything but a 4x4 truck for the 30 years of my driving life. Never once have I ever driven a car or even an SUV on a daily basis. But a log wagon would probably ride better than my huge diesel truck.

    It is definitely a little stiffer than stock but it is not to rough (and I haven't added the weight it is set up for yet). I'm with you on trucks. I drive a lifted '99 Dodge Crew Cab Long bed diesel half the time. It sounds and drives like a forklift haha! I do see why people have issue with the ride however, they have a very nice/comfy ride stock.
