    After: Chrome Letter Inserts, Chrome Tailgate Handle, Dual Exhaust with a Flowmaster, Toyota Trucks Hitch Cover.

    Next Rancho Leveling kit (which didnt level it), Cooper 275/60/20s with a set of MB wheels I had already, Chrome Side Steps, Fender Flares and the 4x4 bed emblems, I know you can't technically get the TRD off-road package on a platinum but I like the emblems to much and it is technically a 4x4 lol

    Then went with the Pro comp front for a better level. Unlike the Rancho, I actually got abt 2.5 out of it.

    Stayed like that for a while until I noticed that the damn bed wasnt on right and it was shifted slighty left in comparison to the cab.... That was a frickin pain in the ass bc to me it had to be straightened which involved breaking the bedliner seals over the bed bolts which lead to them botching the bedliner resprays, which needless to say after I expressed my anger to them (yelled at them) I got a free bakflip out of it so I wouldnt have to look at it!! hahahahaha +1

    Didn't get the full 4inches........ Should of went with the procomp, thought I was gonna get away with the full 4 without all the cutting.. I thought wrong. Oh well, at least i still fit in most parking garages at a full height of 79inches. Also pinstriped myself but not happy with it so i'm gonna go get it professionally done. Next Up some super necessary CHROOOME wheels and apparently new lighting everywhere is the way to go. TBC

    Great Truck. I have a 2014 Platinum as well. I put the TRD Pro suspension in my truck, TRD Exhaust, TRD Sway bar, and a bunch of other stuff. The chrome is awesome . Way to do it your way.

    Love your Tundra. I want dual exhaust at some point, but not like Dodge Ram, as in straight out the back. Way too much exposed. Out the side is the best way, IMHO. That being said , you have a great looking Tundra. I'm hoping the weather has gotten better down your way.

    Thanks for the comments fellas. So don't get me wrong, I know most are leaning toward the black out look now a days, which looks great and is certainly easier on the pocketbook, but when it comes to a white truck nothing goes better than some tastefully done chrome in my opinion. Although Sean, your truck is the strongest case in changing my mind I've seen. lol

    UBC- I'm sure I could of with the pro comp struts but def not with the Ranchos. I was waiting for the life of those Coopers to run out and I wanted to base my next set of tires on the lift I chose.
