    Figured I’d go through and create a build thread for my 2015 5.7 Crewmax Blue Ribbon 4x4. I’ve had the truck about 4 years, so I don’t know whether to start from the beginning or what. I’m just gonna go through my photos and post what I got.

    I bought a grille immediately. Trying to get rid of that chrome. All leds are still working. It’s an EAG grille I got off ebay. I plastidipped the chrome hood bulge, then Rustoleum bedliner on top of it. It’s held up as long as the grille.

    Plastidipped the bumper caps and tinted tails with Niteshades. I cleared them with rustoleum clear then polished and waxed them. 3512C2BC-7C7D-4CE6-B93B-9DF5B20C6427.jpgB31BE34D-87FC-4CF1-A7F3-F193547786D9.jpg

    Painted interior pieces matte black. Tacoma Pro shifter knob and ebay leather boot. I’ve tried twice to sew the leather steering wheel cover on my wheel. Failed both times. I have tons of patience for electrical or paint, but I don’t have the patience for sewing.

    Used Rustoleum bedliner, masked off the stripes and bought 2” stars off Amazon. Sprayed a used TRD skid plate and pulled off the tape and star stickers.

    Those graphite wheels look killer! They remind me of the old Anthracite 6 lug wheels
