She started modding it for me (all without my knowledge). She had the dealer take my wheels and tires off (Cooper Discoverer ST & Moto Metal 951B) and put onto the new truck. Then she bought me a black American Aluminum LP toolbox, Aries black bull bar, in channel window visors, N-Fab nerf bars, weather-tech digital fit floor liners and had them all installed. She knew I always wanted and liked mud tires but I never got them on the 2007 because I didn't see a point in having an MT on a 2 wheel drive so she went out and bought me some 265/75R16 Cooper Discoverer STT's (she knew I loved Cooper tires, gave the old ones to my buddy) and had them thrown on. She also had my system and in dash dvd player (Pioneer dvd player and 2 rockford fosgate 10's) taken out of the 2007 and had my buddy install it for me. Needless to say I was shocked at her actions when I got home and very VERY happy. I ended up tossing the chrome badges and grill and got a color matched grill. I got some TRD all terrain decals and a custom tailgate decal with matching font from sock and put them on. Then I got rid of the chrome monstrosity of a bumper and got a new one and color matched it. I gave my bull bar to my buddy and put on an avid offroad lightbar that I had line-x'd. I got sick o the moto metals so I traded with a fellow member for their TRD Beadlock wheels.

Future Mods:
1. OME or Toytec ULK with rear Dakar Leaf Springs & Uniball UCA's
2. 285/75R16 BFG A/T
3. Tint
4. Leather Seats

lol does your wife have any sisters? love the truck one of toyota's best colors imo

hey man just curious about ur exhaust setup. did you just have them cut the y pipe before it converges and then just run it straight back with 2 straight pipes? or did you just run a separate y pipe from where the "cat back" is connected?

wondering this because i am thinking of having the y pipe cut before it converges and then run true duals straight back...

The ran the y pipe right after the mufflers. I wanted to keep the stock mufflers because I pretty much just like the look of dual pipes and don't care much for a loud truck (hunting). I had true dual (no mufflers) on my 2007 and grew to hate it so I had them put the mufflers back on. It was annoyingly loud. With the setup I have now it is deeper and a little more throatier than normal but not super noticeable and not loud and annoying at all.
