    It all began with saying goodbye to my 2012 TRD OFF Road Superwhite taco. She treated me well for 80k, but I wanted a new build. And then this happened.

    Traded up. SR5 4x4 CM 5.7 38gal

    My goal is to turn her into a SEMI trd pro.
    Here she is all stock

    First and most necessary mod.... trd pro grill. I have no love for chrome

    IMG_4379.jpg
    IMG_4380.jpg

    Next up...... BADGES and tint and Morris caps. Went 5% on the front, 20% on the rear, 30% on the bed window and a dark ass strip on the windshield. If a cop gets behind me, he will see through the lighter tint in the rear and not pull me over :)

    Now for the most proud mod so far, bye bye chrome bumper ends. I have a how to layer out in this thread.

    But the after affect is

    IMG_4876.jpg

    Took the ends off myself and had them dechromed (140$) then blasted and powdercoated (160)

    Came out to a near perfect match.

    More to come

    Added some trd pro suspension and some coach builder gear

    Took some time and painted the stock running boards with gloss black spray paint. We will see how long it will hold

    I love RCSB's. I need a CrewMac for my family, but the regular cabs are sweet looking!

    Can't wait to see the build.

    Once I get some paint correction done, I’m taking my old badges and making some of this happen. Normally I despise chrome, but the wheels really set the tone for the truck so I got to roll with it. It’s not a 4x4, that photo is a joke.
