    Bed extender maybe. Have stock running boards-wife calls them "step stools" I have no use for deck rail system. Have 4 bike hitch rack. Try to keep hunting gear in bed under locked tonneau. Might order center hood decal in black. Like the look it adds something different. That would be order no. 4 for today. Lol too bad it's all small cheap stuff. Should just have xmas in October and get wheels and tires! Boom

    welcome fellow MGM! how about a bed rug or bed mat to keep things from sliding all over the place?
    Also if you will be doing a 3/1 lift, you should get some bigger meats to fill the wheel wells.

    Looking for suggestions on lift/wheels/tires? Thinking Toytec 3-1 with some methods and KO2s. BUT kinda want something different! Seems like a lot of people are going that same route. Can't do anything huge-still need to fit in the garage!

    Nothing wrong with Toytec =) Icons are nice to....
    What size tires you planning on running? With my 3/1.5 lift + 305/65/18's top of my truck is under 6'8" just to give you an idea of total height.

    Not too sure on size? I would like to go back to 18s in place of 20 inch wheels. My dad needs new tires on his 4Runner and we are looking into a 8 tire deal. Hell his rims are shot and we could really do 2 complete sets
