    The pro front end is a great choice.

    Really excited about this project, I'm not willing to shell out over 55k for new 2020 Trd pro so I'm going this route. Donor vehicle is 2014 limited

    Planed upgrades so far:
    Trd sport grille
    Trd sport headlights
    led fog lights
    Color matched front bumper
    Raptor style 3 amber lights in grille
    Towing mirrors
    Painted fender flares
    Aftermarket air intake- mine is damaged so I need to replace it anyway
    Soft bed cover
    24'' led strip behind the grille?
    Running boards
    What do you think geltenmans, is there something else that I should add?

    I would like to make my truck look like this one, that's why I removed hood scoop from planned upgrades

    Steering wheel on my truck has some cuts so I will have to replace it. Should I get one with wood accent or leather one is better?

    What’s something like that cost versus buying complete and whole?

    Drove it out of the garage after fixing abs sensor broken wire, no more warning lights on the dash. No suspension damage, rides nicely, took it around the block at 1am :) yes, I'm working this late cause I started like at 10pm :)

    No elk up there...a lot of big moose....although I think Roosevelt elk were transplanted in southeast AK a few years ago.

    Unfortunately steering wheel that I ordered came gray instead of black, had to return it.
    Half of the parts I ordered are missing in shipping! I don't know what is going on with FedEx ( all packages that are missing were shipped with FedEx)
    On the good side I got soft bed cover installed, took me about 10 minutes to install and this is counting unpacking it, reading manual and searching for tools ( screws driver and 10mm socket:) ). I don't know how long it will last but I love it, nice and simple
