MAGIKBEAN RIM MOD

Ahemm, ok moving on, yes Magikbean the Tundra 5100's are a straight up bolt on affair & I'm on the 3rd groove up with 2 to go if necessary.. They're awesome. Since you are here we'll address the painting of the rims which of course I got the idea from you....

I'll get some better pics up soon




I was pissed last night

Looks like the build is coming along just fine. Can't wait to see more pics. lol

BTW, since you already have the pics uploaded to PhotoBucket, why don't you just post the pics directly. Just wave over the pics while in the album and you should see a list of 4 selectable lines of text. Just click on the one titled "IMG Code". Then, just press CTRL+C (copy) and then CTRL+V (paste) it directly to the post you're writing.

You won't have the little thumbnails, but instead the full-size images if you're cool with that. It's much easier than uploading all the pics to site and then building the post.

Just a suggestion...

Thanks CMACK a little different than last night huh, nothing like flaming yourself , was gonna put myself on the wall of shame..haha

Ok onward, now alot of you have heard/seen my OCD regarding the front bumper, now there is a true bumper in the works if my buddy & myself can get our shit together enough pull it off (& we will eventually) until then I couldn't stand looking at it so I took it off a 3rd time & armed with a pair of left/right angle tin snips, combo square ,black sharpie ( & no its not a term for a quick witted black guy) & tape measure & started trimming away the fat.

But ya can't just hack out the middle like I did & leave the radiator vulnerable so I found a nice piece of steel mesh & a few tek tipped screws later fabbed a little armor for it & trust me it is rigid. it is tuff & passes alot of air to the radiator & alot more rigid than the OEM crap hanging off the front.....

The one now? or the finished product ? theres a couple in the works..

I don't think it looks too bad, like I've said its not good, not bad, just different but I like it so far

Probably going to go with a pre runner type tube hoop with a light bar, I dunno just kickin' it around

I'm talking bout the current one (that you hacked up) and also the future one... I kinda like the hacked up one actually..I've got some plans for my bumper that'll happen within the next week or so.

I've always hated our bumpers and thought they looked way too big and bulky and EXTREMELY cheap. But I figure I won't be replacing mine anytime soon, so mine as well have some fine with it eh?

If you did the turn signal relocation mod, you could do away with the turn signal lights and hack away even more...not sure how it'd look. THere's a guy on here who did it to his 01-04....actually turned out pretty good on his. Hmmmmm

Yeah I saw that, he trimmed EVERYTHING off it looked like, & located the turn signals by the headlights looked good & thats exactly what I've thought about the stock bumpers...

Once I get my light bar I might hack some of my bumper off to help it look better.....This is what's being sent to me:

This was my "1 hour" bumper MOD, (cause it took about an hour to make)

It's actually piece of metal steel stud like you'd use in commercial wall construction, notice I relocated the turn signals ...
