    Well, better late than never. Here's my 2012 MGM Crewmax Texas Edition. Bought it used with 35,000 miles on it.
    Sits today with 84,000 and couldn't be happier.

    I just recently re-tinited my windows. I put 15 over the rear windows on top of the factory tint, 15 on the front two windows and a strip on windshield.
    I also just re did my lift.
    I installed Bilstein 1500's all around, with the fronts set on top setting. I also put two CB shims on top of each strut to give me about 3" of total lift.
    The rear has Coahbuilder +2 shackles. Love the way it turned out, the rear is almost exactly .5" higher than the front.
    Next, I did a body mount chop, bent the skid plate, & heat molded the front liners to prepare for my new tires! :thumbsup:
    I ended up ordering new Toyo AT2 Xtreme 295-65-20 which equals out to a 35x11.8x20.
    After install, the ONLY place it rubbed was on the front sway bar at full lock...barely. I then went ahead and ordered Spidertrax 1.25" spacers and problem solved. Looks much better anyways!
    And finally, yesterday I installed new NFAB steps.

    So here's a list of my mods to date, I'm sure I will miss some so will keep updated.

    Bilstein 5100's
    (2) CB Shims on each strut
    +2 CB Shackles
    295-65-20 Toyo AT2 Xtreme

    Truck is looking good Tyler! Are those TSS or Texas Edition rims?


    Also, hows the tractor supply toolbox holding up?

    Thanks!
    Those are the Texas Edition Rims that came with the truck. They are a +50mm offset which I why I needed the spacers.

    It's been a great box for the price. Had one in my last truck with zero issues.

    Thanks! I have a few things high up on the list but might take some time because they're all pricey. :(
    I would love to replace my standard radio for a touch screen and add a BACKUP CAMERA!

    Also looking into a TRD sway bar and some LR UCA's.

    I'm also thinking about color matching my bumpers and grill surround and powder coat wheels but that's a maybe.

    Do you have a ballpark guess of what it costs to color match? I couldn't even guess.

    Prob a few hundred. You can always wrap it too, if you find the right color.

    Just having the blind spot mirrors alone are worth every penny.



    I was hesitant to get spacers because of the "horror" stories but if you buy the right ones and torque them to speck and check them every rotation, zero worries. Very happy with them.

    One of my fav's on this forum.

    I received my color matched grill today from Sparks...bad ass. That would be a nice addition to your truck.

    Thanks man! :cheers:
    Didn't think about buying a color matched grill from them. Thanks for the heads up.
    Even though you're selling yours, you just can't stop modding it can you?! Haha

    It was pretty reasonable on cost as well. 220.00 to my door in Colorado. For you it would be a lot cheaper.

    I have to swap it out. I had a rock crack my factory one. Hope it looks good. I just can't sell my truck looking like that. It is a personal thing for me.

    Hey Tyler, You're running 295/65/20 with 1.25" spacers so by my math that's a +18mm offset with your OEM wheels. I'm thinking about doing a 3/1 lift and running 295/60/20 (about a 34" tire) +20mm offset wheels. Do you think I'll have to do the CMC mod? or remove my mud flaps??

    Thanks, Dave
