FIRST: PLEASE PARDON THE MESS. I'VE GOT POSTS ALL OVER THIS THREAD. I WILL EVENTUALLY ADD A TABLE OF CONTENTS TO MAKE IT EASIER TO LOOK THROUGH.

Figured I'd start one of these. Gonna be a lot of mods in the works as I came from a fairly modded FJ Cruiser(lift, 35s, bumpers, skids,sliders etc...) Have my first child on the way so I wanted something bigger. This vehicle first and foremost will be for commuting and family so I'm gonna try and keep it as comfortable as possible and not lift it too much past leveling. It will be used for some light offroading and by that I mean some mud, fire roads and anything she'll fit on without bottoming out or risk of damaging the body.

2015 Silver Crewmax 4x4 w/sunroof and nav.

Bought 5/2/15



Ordered on 5/2/15
ADD Offroad Honeybadger Side Steps.

VLED Footwell kit with extra strips and wiring to do the back footwells and to wire up lights on the running boards.

Yea i think it'll definitely come in handy. I can see it quickly turning into a disaster zone without it

Congrats on the new rig. Bought my very similar looking cmax on the same day. Great tip on that organizer, and I'm anxious to see your led lighting setup.

Yea me either. From what ive read, that little plug should run all 8 strips. Someone here was claiming to have run 14 on that one little driver well. If this all works well, i may end up running a couple up underneath the bed rails for extra lighting in there.

I know you are already ordered your locking hitch pin, but I would have definitely recommended this..

[ame]http://www.amazon.com/Strattec-7023584-Receiver-Lock/dp/B00C5T0JCI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1430871486&sr=8-1&keywords=7023584[/ame]

Eliminates adding an extra key....

No, they're not. I was referring to the pictures within the website link you posted, it only shows close up photos. I'm interested to see what they look like from a distance.

They are down there on the list somewheres but tbh I like the look of the venom series bumpers better. The honeybadger bumpers seem large and gawdy imo ;)

Alrighty! Today i received my floor mats, craven speed shorty antenna AND my VLED footwell lighting kit. As im sure you read before, i planned to run some of the lights outside and onto the frame rails for lighting while approaching and entering the car. It turned out awesome. VLEDS ships FAST!

Ps pardon my yellow dome lights. My other leds havent arrived yet.
Also excuse my potato camera LOL. These things are BRIGHT.

However, im currently looking for a way to add more power to the lights because some of the lights in the end of the series are a tad dimmer to the point it is noticeable. I would still like them to come on normally just be pushing enough juice to get them all to maximum output. If anyone has any ideas, im all ears as i suck with electrical. I currently do not have them split evenly. Its maybe a 5 to 3 ratio off the original split

Ok after horror stories about lifetimeled headlight bulbs and some people replacing them every 2 months, ive decided to back up and punt. Ive already authorized a return. I will either have a retrofit done which will require me getting another set of headlights since i dd this vehicle or get the VLED led headlights which seem nicer.

I have Ordered 5/10/15

Rigid Fog Light fit kit
2014-2015 Toyota Tundra Dually Fog Light Kit | Rigid Industries


And

Rigid DOT Compliant D series Fog Lights
SAE Compliant Fog Light Set (D-Series) | Rigid Industries

I have lifetime led headlights and just had one go out on me. But it wasn't 2 months more like 2 years. They replaced them free with no questions asked. they seem well made and have not heard any other issues with them.
