    Here's whats on tap in the coming weeks, Photos will be posted as work is completed.

    Completed work to date - Front window tint 40% ($60)

    Already purchased (being installed 5/11/2017) - SnugTop Tonneau cover with remote keyless access. Bed Rug and 2 swing boxes. ($2200 installed)

    Next known purchases - TRD Pro color match grill with hood bulge. Front color matched Bumper ends. AMP Research PowerStep Running board. Leveling kit. ($3200 installed)

    I will be de-chroming my truck with exception of the 1794 badge.

    Still deciding on a few things and would love folks to chime in. I love opinions and the stronger the better. I fully expect a few to call me a dumbass for my ultimate decisions haha.

    Do I color match the mirrors and door handles or do I go with flat black? I'm worried about overwhelming the truck with too much Blue. I like contrast.

    Next are the wheels (keep in mind its a 1794 edition truck). Trying to decide between a bronze or anthracite wheel. See pics below and weigh in please.

    Lastly are tires. I won't be off roading with my truck (other than fire roads and county roads in the San Bernardino mountains). This is a daily driver. I am looking for a light truck A/T tire with very little to no road noise and a smooth ride. I would go with a passenger HT tire if it could support the weight and fill the wheel well but thats nonexistent. I'm interested in the Hankook DynaPro ATM for its quite and smooth ride. Please share thoughts and ideas on other tires.

    Share your thoughts and ideas guys. Color match or flat black? Which Wheel? Tires?

    color matched handles. Black or color matched mirror caps. If your gonna leave the chrome 1794 badge then the grey looking fuel wheels would look awesome.

    See fine print
    Handles color matched. Mirror caps can go either way.
    I like Anthracite wheels myself.
    Look into Falken wildpeak 2's.
    Also since you have a bed cover, look into getting pop & lock and led lighting for the bed!

    Good start !

    Here's black handles. I want to color match. I think it's looks way better. I'm not a fan of the color matched mirror caps but the whole mirror color matched would be really nice

    I also really like the bronze wheels on a blue truck, if I was gonna buy wheels I'd do bronze for sure.
    Check out Michelin tires. I think you can get the defender ltx ms in a decent size or the ltx AT2's. I had the dynapros on my tacoma, they looked good but I wasn't impressed overall, mostly in the snow and they were a little loud but not as bad as some ATs I've had.

    I know almost everyone hates chrome (me included) but the 1794 is the "fancy" trim on this truck. I actually think your truck looks great with some chrome. Keeps that fancy look that matches the nice interior. Just my opinion which will probably be the only one like this LOL

    Great looking truck. I like the mat black handles and mirrors. Maybe I just detest the chrome so much haha. Color match is probably a good way to go. Thanks for the pic of your truck, it helps seeing it.

    I appreciate your comments. And you might be right, but I think the overloaded the chrome on this one. I did buy this model for the interior finishes though. Its so plush in the cab. Thanks for your encouragement.

    Color matched handles, grey wheels, toyo open country, and gotta do something with those headlamps...I suggest wait for someone to make a harness for the 2018 OEM lamps. Good luck and love that color
