Re: Finally started on my build up - Black

Well last night i got a call from a friend of mine who works for the dealer at the accessories shop with an offer, he asked me if i have ordered the read ARB bumper & TRD Big brake kits or not... My answer was that i will any time soon and in my mind i was thinking "This guy is gonna ask me to order something for him, never wronger could i have been"... he asked me if i would be interested in something as good as stealing from the Dealer and i went :bigthumb: he offered me the following:

1. TRD Big Brake Kit:
2. ARB Rear Bumper:
3. Wrn 9500lbs Winch:

The winch is not on my top praiorities right now as i have other plans for the Rig... so i asked him how much it would set me back and the answer was a :huh: & :jawdrop:

well the total came out to be $841.60 out the door.. yup its not a typo...

The bumper alone was originally sold for $800 & the brake kit was about $1800.. the next thing that came out of me was :signed::bigthumb::cheers:

So today i picked up this baby right here, & the day after tomorrow will be the bumper pickup...

Now i can finally say that i have use for the dealer :lol::rofl:

yet another teaser, Just installed my TRD CAI & Magnaflow Cat back... the whole thing sounds scary loud, like there was no CAI ins... although i did try the car with only the Cat installed and was not as loud as i would've expected it....

The whole thing took about 1 hour to complete with the help of a couple of my friends..

Note to TRD, the instructions are not that great, revise it please.
