    A little bit of where I came from:

    Started with a 2001 Tacoma between 2008-2014. Was lifted about 2in on Bilstein 5100s.

    Purchased a 2016 Tacoma in 2017 and lifted it 2.5in on an OME lift. Sold it in Jan of 2021 to purchase the Tundra as we needed more room for the family.

    Is the TUNDRA lettering metal or plastic? I have seen both on Amazon and can’t decide which ones I want.

    It is metal. I had the soft plastic on my Tacoma and went with the metal this time. Not 100% which I like better to be honest.

    Painted the front tow hooks red today, while painting the rest of the hook body black, as I thought the whole hook red was too much.
