    So I've got a buddy that has convinced me I need to add a few things and I'm looking for some other opinions.

    Should I add fender flares? Wheels are about 1 1/8" out past the fenders now and I'm on a 2" level. If so, OE or pocket style? Leaning towards keeping them matte black. Anyone mind photoshopping some options for me?

    Bull bar or no bull bar? I never take this thing off road (yes I'm that guy) so I don't see a reason to, but I'm curious how it would look.

    I'm getting the seats reupholstered with black leather at a local shop when coronavirus decides to go away, and I'm pretty happy with the interior after a few quality of life improvements.

    Finally, has anyone used one of these toolboxes? How do they hold up over time? I've got a hard bed-cover so i don't think sun/weather should be too much of an issue.

    Thanks everyone!

    Your truck looks great.
    Personally i like the look with no fender flares. It can look good but if i were to have them they would be the non bolted and colour matched. Everyone has their own taste and opinion.

    If your truck were mine, i do really like the Pro grilles on the new tundras with the TOYOTA lettering.

    What kind of trucks appeal to you? Do you use it for work? Do you go camping or have kids?

    I wouldn't get the fender flares myself.

    I agree no fender flares.
    I do have one of those Swing Boxes. Have some stuff I can get to quick instead of having them under back seat.

    Thanks! Its primarily my commuter with the occasional trip to construction sites. The wife and I do go camping from time to time and no kids just yet. I prefer more of the cleaner/sleeker look on most vehicles, which is why I guess I'm hesitant to add too much more.

    Its already a sweet ride, im sure you will find things you want and need. For me my truck is quite a bit older so at this point my maintenance work is upgrades. Im hoping to build mine into a camping and roadtrip machine for the fam.

    I have always been a fender flare guy, have them on mine and I love them. They look good on yours in the photoshop pics! Some guys like them some dont so its a personal preference. Im not a fan of the Bull Bar on our trucks, yours looks great without it, I have a winch bumper on mine but sounds like you have no need for that? I also have a swing case in the bed that holds all of my extraction gear, I am really impressed with it, works well and is very solid.
