    Is your center grill insert black or charcoal gray?

    Truck looks good!

    Was your previous vehicle white? Or is your user name a tribute to Reservoir Dogs?

    I thought it looked darker than mine. My SR5 grill is charcoal gray.

    Installed the suspension today. Bilstein 6112 on 3rd setting and 5160 in the rear. I measured before and after. Seems like I got more than the advertised 1.9", but I'll let it settle and measure it again in a few weeks.

    The surrounding was what caught my attention, never seen it grey before

    I thought of Breaking Bad's Mr. White.

    Beautiful truck.
    Interested in the post settling measurements.

    Put new wheels and tires on yesterday. Icon Alloy Vector 5 with BFG KO2 34x10.5R17 (D Rated).

    Stock wheel (TRD PRO) weight: 31
    Stock tire (Nitto RG - 275/65R18) weight: 44.6
    Total Stock: 75.6
    Icon Vector 5 weight: 28.4
    34x10.5R17 BFG KO2 weight: 54.8
    Total Aftermarket: 83.2

    Difference: +7.6 lb per corner

    Also, I took new height measurements. These were taken by measuring from the ground to the fender lip directly through the center of the wheel. After just a week I don't know if these can be considered "settled" measurements, but I want to record them before I added tires. Also, the front passenger side measurement is a bit suspicious, but I triple checked it.

    Thanks.

    Looks like like your FD "sank" more than your FP.

    I Love the Icon Vector 5s, I whish they made them in 18s.

    Not sure which size would be lighter combined with their respective tire in similar width and diameter.

    Now that I have the new wheels on, I'm getting an alignment done today or tomorrow. This should affect the height once my camber/caster/toe is set properly. I'll take new measurements after the alignment.

    Got my alignment done today. The techs pointed out that my rear toe is way off and that the only explanation for this is a bad axle. I guess I'll be paying my dealership a visit...

    I ordered that turn switch for headlights fog lights you said to get. No returns from Toyota hope it plugs right in. Sounds like you had same plain switch I do now and new switch was happy afterwards. Right? It’s a worry for me I don’t want to pull steering wheel off if there’s ifs. Thank u again will keep you guys posted..
