The fresh palette. I brought her home from Larry H. Miller Toyota Oct 2007.
A-Trac, Locker, TRD exhaust,

My first mod was the can of diet coke my wife left in the console that froze and exploded.

My first REAL mod was the all-weather rubber floor mats my wife gave me for christmas.

Next I put a wrench to my truck for the first time. Black tundra door handles.
and I made a video:
Door Handle Swap

Then I installed the newly released (in '08) side sun visors. And guess what... I made another video:
Sun Visor addition

Then came the OEM roof rack. (so far I haven't needed more)

Next I painted the bezel white. White roof - white bezel just like the old 40's (that didn't have a chrome bezel)
and an Old Man Emu lift (Heavy heavies up front, mediums in the back)

Got in on a group buy for the Manik tail light guards

Bought some Geri cans from Expedition one
and Added a "rack enhancer" to carry a shovel, axe, and highlift

Then at the '08 summit I added a Trail Teams badge and summit badge to my grille (Badges are under there somewhere :shock: )

Then I added an Expedition one bumper. I bought it raw with no hoops. The WyoOtto style had barely come out and I loved it but I wanted thicker hoops so I had a buddy fab them up.

I'm dreaming about a Long Travel Camburg Suspension (maybe in a few years right?)

re: gericurl's "Trail Bomber" Build

I'll post any mistake vids, even if just for a good laugh.

Although I think it would be hard to mess up with all the online support I get here.

As soon as I can afford new tires I will be making my next documentary "Old Man Emu - from down under to down under". (that joke sucked)

(I still owe you a decal by the way. I haven't forgotten)
