I call it the light side, it was right in the first place, why change it? And it's not for sure, just lurking for possibilities. We'll see

Those are your rocker panels. I destroyed my passenger side one last summer.

I did touch up paint and clear nail polish as a top coat. It last through th e winter but is now flaking off. Some surface rust showing too.

I have to take care of it again.

Your best bet is to inhibit the rust now, herculine/bedline, if that's the route you want to go (cheaper than rhino or line-x) and then get sliders.

Oh, and welcome to the club

Sand it down, prime it, then Raptor line those rockers!

No problem as far as the cost I bought 4 completely re manufactured striped, painted and clear coated, shipped to me $400,( no center caps) E bay I was very pleased with the quality of the work, plus they sent return label to send back old wheels with a buy back offer if you want.

I bought 4 OEM center caps for $10 ea and refinished them my self the hardest part was masking the Toyota logo in the center.

Walmart swapped tires and balanced for $30.

The finish I can't comment on as far as the color, looks a little lighter in color than I thougth they should be I will have to compared to a 4 Runner if I see on on the street.

I still see the E bay add on line for the wheels its a $115 or make offer deal, I offered $100.

Great to hear!! did you install yourself? I find myself with some time on my hads (read - "left my job" so I plan on doing it myself. I don't have air tools however, will that be a problem?
Also, what size tires did you run? I'm gonna have to stick with the 265/75/16 for a while

One of my friends did that to his jeep when the handle was worn out it came out good and I've thought about doing it to my truck.

Installed the WeatherTech bug deflector,wind guards on the windows and took it to the dealer for it's 30K mile maintenance (it now has 34K miles on it). They checked the driveline fluids and said I had another 15K to go on them. The plugs looked good and everything else checked out OK. Also bought and assembled a "survivor kit" of a tube jack, 4 Way lug wrench, tow strap, shovel, tool kit, several wood blocks and 12v air compressor.

When you consider that this truck will be my everyday driver and will spend a third of it's time in city traffic, a third of it's time going long distances and the other third on our ranch or looking for trout streams, I've just about got it outfitted.





Gawd I love my truck!
