    Got the TRD exhaust, bed liner sprayed in, and I added the Tundra inserts to the tailgate this weekend.

    Exhaust is much louder but not annoying. Quite at idle but it gets decently loud at 2000+ rpm. No drone on the highway.

    Spray in Rhino liner

    Tundra Tailgate inserts. Adds a decent amount of color to the tailgate.

    Honestly couldn't tell you. I just went to my local truck shop, purchased it and had it installed there. Its just blocks with longer shackles in the rear and a strut spacer in the front.

    Toytec leveling kit ordered yesterday. Should be here early next week. Will make an appointment for install when it arrives.

    Front windows tinted at 15% to match the back. Got a strip across the windshield to match but not sure if I like it or not. I'm sort of tall and the transition is almost in my line of sight. I'll wait to see if the lift changes it up any at all before I do anything to it.

    Thanks. Not sure yet. I might use the stock wheels but I really like the Method NVs. Tires will probably be either Goodyear Duratrac or BFG KO2 in 275/70-18.

    Installed my TRD Pro grill and dipped my hood bulge. I think I will dip the outside of the grill and probably the bumper ends as well. Also got my Toytec level kit on. Need to decide on tires but those will be a while.

    Been a while since I've updated the truck. Added the nfab bumper with baja designs squadron r lights controlled by the fog switch. The KC lightbar is on a stand alone switch on the lower left of the dash. Tons of light with the wide cornering squadrons and spot/flood bar. The BORA spacers pushed the wheels out just enough to look good. Debating on switching from thd TRD Pro exhaust to an after axle dumped MagnaFlow set up.

    I too think she looks great. But looks like you went back to the stock grill ... I'd pop out the gray insert and put in the pro insert.

    <---Check out my avatar. I think the chrome trim works well with the clear headlamps.

    Yes, the black grill started peeling so I took it off to decide what to do with it. I sort of like the chrome surround with the black bumper so I might switch the centers like you suggested.

    Haven't updated this post in a while. New set-up and current pics are in first post. Suspension upgrades will be coming soon. Probably Radflo 2.5 COs with Bilstein 5100s in the rear.

    Front suspension upgrades complete. Toytec/Radflo 2.5 coilovers (set at 2" of lift) and JBA UCAs. The new coilovers ride much better than my old set up of TRD shocks and toytec 2" leveling kit. Hope to get my new rear shocks installed soon. Rain kept me from getting them finished.
