How the truck looks now







My truck is a 2003 V6 5 Speed 4x4 TRD Extra cab. I bought it a few years ago with 82,000 miles on it.

Mods

Adjustable Toytec Coilovers
Differential Drop
Old Man Emu Leaf Packs
Bilstein 5125s

Trail Gear Rear Bumper
Light Bar with Hella 700ffs made by snobord552
Herculined Rocker Panels
Blacked out Badges
Tinted windows
Black stock wheels
265/75/16 BFG All Terrains (Hopefully 285s soon)

Pictures from when I first got it:




After the lift:














Light Bar Made by snobord552


Herculined Rocker Panels and window tint




Trail Gear Rear Bumper





Took off the diamond plate tool box and put in these boxes I found at the surplus store



Painted the stock wheels


Picked this up last night. Found it on craigslist for $30


Cap on the truck coated in herculiner:




How she sits now with TG front bumper and 4xinnovations DOM sliders:

Sweet. I wish I saved money and went with a 1st gen sometimes.

But wait. I do not see a bit of Plasti-dip on your truck. That means your truck is a fail my friend.

Call me dumb, but did you paint those wheels since I saw your truck last or were they painted when we met up?

Paint and Plasti-dip aren't the same thing.

I think you should collect all the used up cans of Plasti-dip from the forum members to see how many times you could fill up your bed.

Cool truck. I like where you're headed, but I'll never understand why anyone would choose to use Herculiner. I have never seen a Herculiner job that didn't look plain aweful. There is no way to get a good finish with that stuff and it fades and looks bad way too quickly.

Not trying to knock your truck because I honestly like it. I just hate Herculiner.

Carry on.

I have herculiner on my rocker panels too and it looks good imo, even though it has faded. It looks sort of like a flat black instead of a gloss black when it fades. If you mix and apply it right it will come out looking good and even.

I thought about that but I didn't want to spend a lot of money to fix it up. If I used the spray paint it probably wouldn't hold up well and wouldn't match very well. Getting it professionally repainted would be pretty expensive. The herculiner will basically match my rocker panels and it will be very durable. I thought through all my options before I herculined it and that seems like the best of all the options to me.
