Baseball Trailer Hitch (I am a little league coach)

Added Black Westin Bull Bar this weekend - the wife isn't crazy about it but I love the look.

LED 3rd tail light still hasnt arrived (today maybe?), Black Headlight Mod should be next to finish the front.

I want to swap the exhaust for the TRD exhaust - anyone do that and not like it? I know there are other choices too.

Still undecided about a 3" lift - how drastic it will be, will it make me want new wheels and tires?...

Westin Bull Bar Mod:

May 2011 - Westin Bull Bar (Black)



May 2011 - Westin Bull Bar (Black)



May 2011 - Westin Bull Bar (Black) 2

Nice lookin truck. Those TRD exhausts are the way to go,not too loud. If u lift it,u will definatly want bigger tires!
