started with a black 2000 tacoma with 200,000 miles (only pic i have it was that damn ugly




someone hit my truck so i got a bit of body work done




then i got a 3" toytech lift installed and a kobalt toolbox




Parents surprised me with a set of new tires for my birthday so i decided to take them for a spin




hit a Mercedes about a year ago... drivers side of the bumper...

I haven't had any trouble with the center caps, but I only have mine on the rear wheels since I have manual of king hubs up front.

Was it rust that was keeping them on too tight?

ya there was a thin layer and i guess the seal was too much. the next set i get im going to take a wire brush to the drums (just put new rotors on) and a really thin layer of anti seize grease or something on the inside of the cap.

Good idea, that is exactly what I would do.

Truck looks good, restore the headlights (or get new ones) and then clear corners and signals and it will look real clean
