Tytoshi grill by TY

Today I drove to south Whittier to pick up my TYTOSHI Satoshi Grill by TY (1BlkT). I was lucky enough to get one that he was making for someone else but they never followed through so received a great price discount. It is chrome with flat black paint. I just need to cut out and attach the two small metal triangles, but he was kind enough to supply me with all the necessary materials. I have yet to decide whether I want to repaint it or not. Can't wait to put it on!!! This thing is of amazing quality; you can't even tell where the crossmember was cut from.


just picked it up

Laid out

Perfect

Repainting the Tytoshi

So today i decided to repaint the metal in the grill because the flat black looked a little odd. I left the plastic piece flat black and it actually turned out very unique


I taped off everything including the inner plastic piece


I scuffed up the metal with some 60grit sand paper so the paint would stick better.


I sprayed the metal with some gloss black but the can shit out on me and died during the application. off to ace hardware!


I bought some "Black Night" metallic paint at Ace Hardware and I found my Belt Buckle!!!


Sprayed down 3 coats of "Black Night"


It has a very interesting look to it.


I let it dry... When it is hit with light it is very reflective and looks like black armor almost.


I attached my belt buckle to the grill with some fishing wire and a black zip tie. This is only temporary until my Devil Horns Emblem arrives in the mail from MillerJeff


God Bless America!!!

Satoshi Grill Installed

So i Moved to Northern California Yesterday and wasnt able to put on much. . . I did install the Tytoshi However as well as the TOY(yoda) sticker. I love the way the grill looks and i can't wait to put on the readylift/headlights. Here are a few pictures. Enjoy!!!

By the way. . . I got to see the 235/75r15's for the first time, and in no way do the pictures do these tires justice. I think they are the perfect size and they look amazing. Once the readylift is on This truck will be sittin' the way it deserves to be. No Negative side-effects at all!!!

After

Nice Truck like to see other five luggers, when you put the ready lift on you will want bigger tires 30's or 31's. I put 30x9.5x15's on my after the fat bobs lift pretty much the same as the ready lift and I could honestly put 31's look at my gallery pics IMO you will want at least 30"s. Again cool truck.

Well I definitely Want the 30's atleast, I'm shooting for 33's down the line but id rather increase the performance of the truck before i get new rims. . . with that said, i also want wheel spacers for that bulldog look. I am into the aggressive stance. Also, thank you for the compliments.

ON an informational note, I performed the secondary air filter removal on 10/8/10 and i must say i notice a huge difference in throttle response already and acceleration.

I have not been able to check the MPG difference but i am driving to Orange county Monday night and back to San Francisco Tuesday night so well see. I just wanted to inform everyone who has a 5-lug that they should definitely remove the Secondary Air Filter. Good Luck!

I also installed my Cobra 19 DXIII CB radio/PA unit w 25 watt all weather speaker. I wired everything up super stealth. I love it. In the process of wiring this, i also removed the two plates on the horns, therefore increasing horn DB +10.

Spyder Halo Headlights

So yesterday i hooked up my Sypder Halo Headlights but i couldn't get the halos/leds to work. After much stress and research i found out what i had done was perfectly correct in wiring. The problem was that the quick crimp connectors were not exposing the wire enough so i had to shave the wire down then connect it!!! I know they are LED's and not CCFL's but I dont give a fuck!!! I love the way these look.

Hella 500FF

So I spent all day 10/23 installing my Hella500FF lights behind my Tytoshi in the pouring rain, which I don't recommend. I wanted them installed today though so I carried on. I bought 2x 3/8" x 2" Zinc Hex bolts to extend the drop down level of the lights thanks to Neslerrah's build page. I attached the Lights to the frame on the two holes just outside of where the grill attaches. I love the result.
