Thanks man! blacking out the grille looks so much better than chrome IMO. And its easy to touch up with a can of Dupli-Color Trim Paint. Thats what I use for it all. If I would have had the cash laying around, I would have went with a tube/plate bumper. But it turns out I REALLY like the black replacement bumper. It is easy to touch up as well.

Yeah, I would love to have a winch bumper myself, but right now it is not in the cards.

Did a lot of work on the truck this past weekend. I finally finished the install of my MidTravel kit.

Front:
- I added TC UCA's to go along with my ICON Ext. Travel C/O's.

Rear:
- I added the ICON 3 Leaf AAL along with ICON VS 2.0 Monotube rear shocks.

Other things:
- Cleaned up and painted the rear axle/drums
- Painted visible part of spindles
- Rotated tires while off
- Adjusted driver side coilover
- Cleaned up coilovers
- Dropped spare tire and cleaned it/checked pressure
- Hand wash
- Stickers
- Added a little Kicker 10" sub

And now for pics!








































Also, me and dyl0n installed his Maxtrac spindles, Fox 2.0 Coilovers, TC UCA's, 4" Allpro expos, Allpro U-bolt flip kit, Fox 2.0 rear shocks, extended brake lines, Brembo rotors, Hawk LTS pads, and 17" SCS Stealth 6 wheels wrapped in 285/70/17 BFG All Terrains.


Next Up:
- Wheelers extended front brake lines
- Rear plate bumper
- Power steering flush

Got my new Pro Comp 7069's installed!




Next Up:
Install Wheeler's extended front brake lines
Power steering flush
Bumpers

Front and rear bumpers will also be added very soon. As for the rear, I currently have a custom plate bumper being made. For the front, I will be getting a Demello tube bumper from a fellow TW member in exchange for some Icon UCA's. Will post pics once the bumpers are installed!

Just a quick update.

Got a custom rear plate bumper made by RAT Products (isu2014). He did some awesome work! It is the EXACT bumper I have always wanted. A link to the rear bumper I purchased can be accessed here: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/1st...ml#post7370509 It's the second bumper.

Anyways here's some pics of the bumper installed. I added my own license plate light. All I used was a small piece of angled iron from Lowes and an LED light bar with 3M tape on the back from Autozone. I wired it in to one of my original license plate lights and it works perfectly.




I also got around to replacing my front window trim. It looks so much better! I noticed my gas cap was getting old and cracking. So I replaced it too.






Last but not least , I received a Demello front tube bumper from SCRunner12 as part of a trade we worked out. I just need to get an aluminum skid for it and then it will be ready to mount up! As for now, here's what it looks like.

Got a skid for the bumper and mounted it up! I love it! Here's a few pics.







I am currently waiting for my Trail Gear turn signal kit to come in so I can get rid of the zip tied turn signals.

Also added these cool shackles to my rear bumper
