Thought I share my build. Brought her home back in 07. She pretty much spent the next couple of years stock. After years of looking on the forums. I picked up some parts for cheap. Below is what I've done so far...

2002 SR5 TRD xtracab 3.4 Auto 4x4.

First camping trip in Big Bear

The first thing I found, an ARE CX shell

Off came the stock wheel...Spare Steelies

Then a trip from Mexicali to Cabo. Bone stock without a problem. The other two vehicles had some minor stuff.

Then all the goodies. The DRs I picked up for cheap needed a rebuild. It ended up needing a new shaft as well. Found out the hard way, leaked during a trail run. Had to limp back.

Finally the ARB bumper

I couldn't find any bolt on sliders that I liked. Ken at KR Fab created what I wanted.

Thanks. Simple has proven very reliable so far. Fingers crossed.

Yes. Updates?

I've built a platform for the fridge and the dog behind the seats to level off the xtracab bump. I will be also installing a ham radio. Also started with a simple sleep platform in back. I'll post details and pics as soon as i'm in front of my own comp. Stay tuned.

Found a great deal on the fridge that I couldn't turn down
http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c236/jacalson/image3.jpeg (http://s28.photobucket.com/user/jacalson/media/image3.jpeg.html)

Added a Scangauge to keep an eye on stuff
http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c236/jacalson/image6.jpeg (http://s28.photobucket.com/user/jacalson/media/image6.jpeg.html)

Needed a fuse block to deal with all the add-ons. I used a Blue Sea fuse block and circuit breaker. Found some tupperware to keep moisture and dust out. Bent a tray using some 16ga stainless I found at IMS junk pile for $2.
http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c236/jacalson/image8.jpeg (http://s28.photobucket.com/user/jacalson/media/image8.jpeg.html)

Got my license and installed a Yaesu FT-8900R. Got the idea from 4runamok/barlowrs to use magnets to deal the mic.

Nice looking truck!

Have more info or a link to the mic magnet thing? Just putting one one the back of the mic and it sticks to something on the dash or adding something to the dash too? Thanks.

I found them on craigslist. Picked up four brand new steelies for $80.

Thanks. I order the countersunk Neodymium magnets from Amazon. The countersunk ones goes on the mic. I also order some with holes for the back. I glued the ones without the holes behind the dash right below the passenger airbag selector. I stacked up 3-4 magnets (the ones behind the dash) to increase the pull.
