DJFllmn's 03 FX4

i was thinking id put up a project log so here i go...dont have every mod i did but i have the majority of them...and i had no intensions of doing anything to this truck besides exhaust until i joined here lol

this is how i bought the truck on 2/7/09 it only had 30K on the clock


first thing i did was the bug deflector and the windshield decal


i dont have a pic of my first exhaust system but it was a Flowmaster 40 series delta flow but i didnt have it for long thanks to this camry



after that i got my current exhaust which is a Flowmaster Super 44

then i put the 06 tails on it


next thing i did was took my side steps off because i was tired of whacking my shins on them and getting my pants dirty lol



next mod i did was i traded another member my 5 spoke wheels for his American Racing wheels


next thing i did thanks to clinton was my OHC and autodim mirror


then i put the 06+ corners on it and clinton deserves another shout out for hooking me up for them and this is how it sits today

What's different about your mirrors and the 06+ they are both power so I don't see how it wouldn't be just cut and splice
