    4 time Toyota owner and just stepped up from my 02 Tacoma 4x4 to my new 2016 TRD Tundra and couldn't be happier! As most I'm working my way through personal mods:
    Custom powder coated gun metal TRD wheels
    275x70 Defender2 Michelin tires (M/S road tires with reinforced sidewalls for towing)
    5100 Bilstein shocks with front adjusters (first setting .87)
    Rear anti-sway bar
    TRD Pro color match grille
    TRD Pro blacked out headlights (in hand, to be installed)
    VLED bulbs all around
    Color match wrap bumpers
    Color match tailgate handle
    Leer 100XQ Canopy
    Front window tint
    Katzkin leather
    Amp Research side steps
    (Will post more photos soon)

    These 5100 Bilstein's gives it a "Cadillac"ride and the TRD anti-sway bar really tightened up the rear.

    New Katzkin Leather with matching interior silver thread.

    #1 is the amber switch back LED (VLED makes a 6K white/amber switch back. 6K white running light replaces the amber but turn signal crosses over to amber). http://www.vleds.com/bulb-type/turn...n-signals-front-3157-ck/v3-wa-set-3157ck.html
    #2 headlight with fan setup
    #3 Plug and Play side marker

    Thank you CSUVIPER...
    My Tacoma had a moderate old man emo lift. This truck is more "road" than off-road and will be used for pulling our boat and fishing excursions. I want a super clean look and had all the badges stripped first thing. I've taken the "Toyota" off the tailgate handle and it will look super clean color match white after I install it. The big "Toyota" in the TRD grille has got to go! Can't decide, I wish someone made the elongated hole pattern in a Tundra aftermarket grille...
