just got my '05 V8, new to forum

Hello there,
Just wanted to thank all of you who post on this board as it has been a wealth of knowledge to me as this was my first Toyota purchase and this board has been a big help. Pics are coming of the new vehicle, just wanted to introduce myself first and after I wash it this weekend, they'll be plenty of pics. The new V8 is really impressive and I couldn't be happier with the vehicle. Coming from the land of Jeeps and old school Broncos, this was a big change for me and I think I can get used to it! Thanks and I look forward to posting again in the future. Mike

2005 SR5 V8 2WD (my first non-4WD vehicle)
Galactic Gray
-Options-
Leather
Leather steering wheel
Leather shift-knob
Spoiler
Tint (I didn't want it, but it came from the port that way)
Dealer swiped the Dunlops out for the Cross-Terrains.

-Mods-
Debadged the doors (much cleaner look)
Philips Vision+ high & lows (highly recommended)
Husky Liners for front and for rear cargo

-Almost a Mod-
Borla dual exhaust (NOTE: there is no cat-back system for the '05 V8 as of yet. I learned this the hard way as I ordered one from a Toyota parts store on Ebay that advertised the system to fit for '03-'05 vehicle. I took it to the dealer to install and even though the pipes seem to line up, the hangings are all wrong. Toyota rep said it will be a couple of more months at least.)

-Audio Mod-
Headunit: Eclipse CD5444
Front speakers: Dynaudio 240MKII
Rear speakers: Canton RS16CX
Signal processor/Preamp/EQ: Zapco SP4-SL w/ Symbilink
Subwoofer: JL Audio Stealthbox SB-T-4RNR2/10W3v2
4-channel amp: Zapco Reference 360
2-channel amp: Zapco Reference 350
Dynamat Extreme: all doors, rear wheel wells, and rear hatch

Thanks again, Mike

Welcome to the club!

I too was hoping to get a borla system for my truck, but even the dealer didnt know that there isnt a system for 05 yet :o I really wanted to hear this new V8 thru a nice exhaust!
