    Playing catch up sharing mods on this White is Right! '17 Crewmax TRD - spent too long lurking and not enough time typing!

    I knew I wanted a Limited to keep my ass leather-clad but not a lot of them around this area. Nearest dealer found one in NV in my preferred color Super White and brought it up for me. I left skid marks in the driveway getting down there when he told me it has the grey interior!

    Requisite dealer parking lot photo. The cab felt like a cockpit after rambling around in my 2000 Grand Cherokee!

    The wife wanted easier access and we get a bit of snow in these parts so Iron Cross patriot running boards and the inexpensive but very functional Tyger Tri-Fold Tonneau were the first purchases.

    I love the range with a 38 gal tank but come on Toyota wheres the f'n storage under the back seat and bed for the must haves like jumper cables (for Chevy's) first aid kit, recover gear (for Chevy's), tools (yep, I carry them for Chevy's), etc? A tool box would take up too much space in the short bed - an Under Cover Swing Box fit the bill and I fabbed some mounts with t-slot nuts, metal bar stock and Quick Fists for a shovel and axe (thanks to @joonbug for the inspiration). i might have to spring for an ESP Trucks under seat storage unit some day so I can really secure larger stuff in the cab.

    Time to tackle the chrome next. The hood bulge was easy. I never thought it would be so hard to get a white grille to the house in one piece. Twice they showed damaged and started to wonder if I'd pissed the UPS guy off! After a bit if hassle I returned one at shippers expense and they told me to keep the second one and issued a refund. A little epoxy, a little fiberglass and boom - free super white grille surround for my black mesh grille!

    I loved the look but too much AC and radiator showing through so I found a sheet of SS black mesh and made some brackets from sheet metal so it would sit about an inch behind the grille. I had an LED light bar on the way and I wanted to go for a clean, uncluttered look so I left a cutout in the mesh for the light bar, blacked out everything on the back side of the grille with spray paint and mounted the light bar to the cross member behind the bumper.

    Debadging, ptm door handles and flat black mirror caps got most of the other bling removed. I still need to wrap the bumper caps - I've been too lazy to wash her and get out the heat gun. Better yet, I need to replace the bumper with a Magnum RT and ptm like @desertdawg - my personal hero! :bowdown:

    SpiderTrax were added next but I had less than 50 miles on them and decided to drop the hammer on new wheels when I ordered my new tires.

    Whew! This how she sits today but Bilstein 6112s/5160s, +3 CB shackles w/poly bushing, 3 CB shims, CB steering kit, CB carrier bearing drop and a diff drop kit are waiting for a weekend trip to my bro's house for some wrenching. Then its down to commercial tire to re-shoe with Fuel Anzas and 295/70R18 S/T maxx. I have to say - couldn't have got this far with out all of you! Hell, just the wheel backspacing alone had me loosing sleep until you all got me straightened out.
