    cleaned up and ready for the Christmas and New Year Holiday's! Have I mentioned that I can't believe I bought white, man it's a pain in the a$$ to clean!

    Really? Black is way harder in my opinion. I feel like my white stays clean looking and hides swirls.

    Truck looks nice regardless.

    Black is a pain as well and you can always see the swirls in paint bad in the sunlight. I do a whole lot of dirt/rock roads and off road driving so i have a ton of rock chips already down the sides of the truck, tires sticking out with no fender flares but I just don't like the way they look.
    The pic is also from 15 foot away, so you can't see all the paint issues! Does anyone else with White have small rust discolorations showing in their paint?

    I have a ton of lil rust colored spots all over this truck! I guess I need to take it up to the dealership and see what they say.

    Also is there a thread on here that's specifically for paint/body? I searched and couldn't find, was going to see if there was anyone from Toyota on this forum and see if I could get input.

    Hmm. I would guess those are from grinding and welding sparks leaving metal in the paint. I have wide tires too but no chips yet. Minimal off road use.

    I read somewhere these spots are brake dust from the trains when they ship these trucks that oxidizes over time. Maybe use a clay bar? @War Machine ?

    Thanks for that pic. Thought about it but no way to fit a carbine was my thought when searching for CM storage options. The DC guys have it better

    @jewsNbrews has dealt with this before on his old MGM. Don’t remember what he did to correct it.

    Yup. First you have to make a few phone calls. Make sure you have good credit. Open new loan, stuff is hard to get rid of.

    Then trade that slow mfer in for a fast voodoo blue tundra pro. Also acceptable in platinum if you put a pro suspension on it.

    Failed miserably at second round of trying to put Recon taillights on my truck. I've called the company, rewired, and STILL keep blowing fuses. I have never been this stumped about wiring ever. Just doesn't make sense to me. Took me 10 minutes to install the existing Spyders without a hitch. Really freakin sucks. I HATE feeling defeated!!!!

    Bummer. Lighting shouldn't be anything too crazy, unless part of the truck's metamorphosis changed things? I know your rig is heavily customized.

    Yeah, I think the fact that the wiring is still a 2007 is causing issues. The guy at Recon said that 3rd Gen Tundras have unique wiring. Even though 3rd Gen taillights fit my truck because of the updated Pro body panels, I'm fighting 2nd Gen wiring. Oh well, guess I'm keeping the Spyders for now.

    This might not be it, but I recently found out about this nasty sheyat because I thought it was rust spots on my cars. I removed all the mulch around my parking area, no more brown spots.
