    -6" Pro-comp lift kit
    -Black mesh grill
    -Bull Bar
    -20" LED light bar
    -Tonneau cover
    -found some used 18" black fuel wheels (saving some cash)
    -35" nitto trail grappler
    Can't wait till all this is here and start the install.

    Also doing some debadging on some of the emblems, a little to much chrome for my taste.

    Has anyone used Rhino bed linner for their side steps??

    I really like what Sean266 did with the rear view mirrors and the blacked out side steps look great ......Hummmm might have to go with that look.

    If you really want extra protection on steps, you could always use bed roll paint too. I used that on my sliders on my Tacoma and it worked great.

    We'll guys got some good news and some bad news!! :-(

    I did a ton of upgrades on the Tundra last week, started on Wednesday and pulled some very late nights to complete the mods, I wanted to have most of the upgrades completed before our "river trip" the family and I had planned this rafting trip for over two months, and having a new "toy" I wanted to complete as much as could, so my compadre and I worked our a$$ off and completed most of the upgrades! Even got an alignment on Friday morning, Trip was scheduled for last Saturday during our trip down the river we had a little mishap, our cooler that had our beer, food, and electronics flipped over and I lost everything my phone, iPod, wife's phone, truck keys w/key fob and wallet!! SMH.

    I had detailed pictures and couple videos and lost it all!

    So now on to some good news:
    Items completed!

    Lift kit -installed
    Mesh grill -done
    Tonneau cover -done
    Alligment - done
    Wheels and tires - installed
    Bull bar -done
    less chrome badge delete -done
    Side mirror chrome remove -done

    Now for some pics Sorry I don't have detail pics got this from my buddy that helped me.

    Cutting this grill was nerve racking, instructions did not say anything about a Platimum grill, it was just for the basic grill, had to mod the edge.

    Man, that must have been/is frustrating. Sorry for your unfortunate experience. Hopefully you had some items backed up to the cloud.

    I like the bull bar. Still on the fence about getting one.
    Nice work.
