    Glad to hear. I haven't had them in the snow yet, but will soon. Hope they live up to my expectations on cold/wet/snowy roads.

    I'm loving your build so far! How did you go about getting the front bumper caps color matched?

    Hey,

    I ordered the OEM front bumper caps from Roman on for the forums here. This thread covers the popular parts: https://www.tundras.com/threads/ultimate-oem-toyota-parts-thread.10707/

    The bumper caps came unpainted so I found a local shop to paint match them and then I installed em'.

    I reused the wire from my Limited grille and there is a little slack, but not much. If you are OCD you could probably just use a zip tie to tighten things up.

    Next up was the ESP Storage install. I decided to put some killmat in the holes cut in the carpet for the storage area.
