Looks good man!
You listed "Xenon Depot LED headlight kit"... is that for low beams or high beams? I couldn't find any LEDs that worked good with the stock projectors, and I'm still not too happy with HIDs in there either.

Ya those are for the low beams. Is it as good as Audi and other led projectors? Not at all. Is it good enough for me? Yes. I definitely miss my morimotto retrofit in my 05 but I'm definitely not struggling to see. I spent some time finding the right configuration with these LEDs and for them dialed in at almost exactly 9 and 3 and that helped throw the light further.

Also that might change when I get into the woods but we will see.

I definitely wish toyota spent more time on their headlights and light configuration but I'm also glad they spent more time on the more important aspects of these rigs.

I had the same thoughts with my headlights. I've got Morimotos in the stock projectors. A million times better than halogen bulbs but still leaves a lot to be desired

Me too... and maybe just 10 more minutes to upgrade the interiors (my 2011 dashboard/ gagues are horrible compared to yours, they look like they're stuck in the early 2000s)

Awesome day. Ran Barlow Road to Grasshopper Point. Didn't quite make Badger Lake which sucks but we had to get back to town.
Couple shots from today

Ordered that National Luna Dual Battery Kit this morning which then fueled the thought that I should upgrade my primary battery.

Have an upcoming camping trip (don't think Ill be able to install the dual's in time for) and will be living out of the rig and so I want to be able to run the truck for awhile without worry of it dying.

Either way upgraded to the Odyssey 34R-PC1500T.

Nice! I have that same battery as both my primary and auxiliary, I love it. Just this last weekend I went camping and had the fridge, lights, and stereo cranked up pretty loud all running off the aux battery and 2 hours later it was only down to 11.8 volts. I'm definitely happy with that.

Exactly what I did, I had a few laying around. I only needed about 1/4 inch to make it tight.

You can also use a small stack of washers.

Installed the Diamond K400 mount and 2' Firestik



Love it! Got it 90% wired but just need to figure out where I want it to come out from.
I have the Cobra 75wxst so I want to be able to plug it in and remove it when not needed. I have a couple ideas but we will see

Swapped out my DDM 40W Saber LED DRLs for the XenonDepot 9005 Xtreme LED Pro DRLs and love them!

After a few months of running the DDM I was content with the output even though it was a little much. One day I pulled up to the garage and noticed one wasn't aligned correctly and upon inspection found the screw had become stripped from the grommet. I have dealt with DDM issues far too long to deal with this again so I decided to check out the XenonDepot kit and really wish I went with this the first time. The color is awesome and there is almost no flicker - much less than DDM and only visible by trying to look for it. Not to mention the construction is top notch vs the DDM.
