Hey all, so I've had my 2015 XL SCrew for just over a week and a half now! Love this truck! It's almost completely base model, but it's got so much potential! I plan on posting all of the progress I make on the upgrades on here and since I can't seem to find a lot of the "how 2 guides" for some of these, I plan on including them as well.
Window Tint - Done
Jump Seat to Center Shift Console Swap - Console Ordered off eBay
New wheels, maybe tires
Spray in bed liner
52" curved light bar
Custom Built Pre Runner Bumper (big maybe )
Rearview Backup Camera
Oh yeah stubby antenna
I'm sure there will be others that come up along the way, this is just what I have compiled in the last 10 days!
Photos of the progress thus far coming tomorrow.

Thanks! Yeah I'm really pumped about getting the truck. It's a beast! Sorry for the delay in photos, here are the ones that the dealer took to show the truck online, I'm planning on taking some more photos this weekend, in action as I have 3 of my upgrades coming in today! Work on the Truck weekend!
Check out the sweet Vinyl! Not many people get to feel the glorious vinyl on their bums every day!
Thanks so much! I appreciate it. Yeah I was pretty bummed that I couldn't get the XLT sport, but just didn't want a payment that high, and then I realized that I could buy all the parts and make it the truck I wanted to, so I got very excited.
Oh I also forgot to mention that my center console is arriving today as well, so it should be a very busy weekend!
Headlight moulding installed! I also took some photos to show the process...all in all pretty easy, I spent more time looking for a driver for the socket to take off the screws than it took to actually remove the moulding. Oh also, getting one of those clip tools was a HUGE lifesaver! Got one for $10 at Autozone...highly recommend it!
Here is the full write up of how to remove the moulding for anyone else that needs to know.
Note when take it off and putting back on, it needs to slide toward the outside to clear the tabs in the back, and then reverse for putting it back on.
Note that all of these clips don't need to be removed by hand, I squeezed together the top one that you can see after your remove the panel clip, and then I was able to just use my hands and pop the panel out, super easy.
And here is all wrapped up and done! What a transformation for such a small part!
Thanks man! Spent most of today installing the console...realized halfway through that I needed a floor jack to connect the shifter linkage to the transmission...you can totally see it from under the hood, but too far to reach...so I tucked in the cables for now, also found out that I had to swap out the link connectors for the ones I already had as I don't have the cables for the console ones...think if I ever find a nav head unit, I'll be able to connect them but for now, no biggie. Just have to bolt back in the drivers seat and I'm all set with a brand new center console. It's definitely been a busy day! Going to finish up in the morning and I'll post some photos.
