Default My 2012 cross country touring project

Well here is goes this is my 2012 cross touring. I purchased it new in May 2012. I had D&D mufflers installed and pull back bars installed before I picked it up



Last fall I decided it was time for upgrades. I installed an Arlen ness 23" front wheel, 6degree tripple clamps, fender, fork limiters, front brake rotors, and a new abs ring. Also since I had the front end apart I installed an amp and speakers







I had to splice into the factory harness to install the amp



Cleaned up and taped up

I'm a Toyota technician so I know my way around a toolbox and soldering wires. I need to disassemble the front forks and put a thicker fluid. Factory oil weight is 5w but I have bottomed out the front end 4 times while braking and driving over a bump. So I'm going to bump it up to 15w fork oil
