One step closer - Lexus seat foam

71512-60070 Lexus Front seat bottom - driver (US)
71511-60070 Lexus Front seat bottom - passenger (US)
71551-60140 Toyota Front seat back - driver (US)

As far as I can tell the Lexus seat foam is more finished and softer. The Toyota foam appears to be heat set and a touch firmer. The foam is more rigid with a harder shell to it on the Toyota version if that makes sense.

There was a glow in the Denver area tonight driving home from my girlfriend's apartment, I think it was Treeroot's LED's reflecting off the low-hanging clouds...

I saw the Ptarmigan in person last night - the reflection off the snorkel was breathtaking.

HIDs are installed and they are bright! I went with the 5000K bulbs so I don't look too tuner but.....oh damn, these are bright! For all those haters of HID in a DOT housing, I am well aware of the glare issues. The E code headlights have a much sharper cutoff and the bulbs are the correct length. I'll get pics of the before and after up shortly. I do like how the white light makes the rig look newer just like replacing all the incandescent bulbs made the truck 13 years younger.
