Yeah, I'm all stock up front except for the Billies. I love the ride, it's a little stiffer (less body roll in cornering and less nose dive when braking) without being harsh. At higher speeds on the highway/interstate the ride is actually smoother than stock.

I would love to paint my TRD Sport wheels the same way you did. I've always felt black wheels didn't look that great against the MGM. Did you use the index card trick to paint them or did you remove them from the tires altogether? They look great.

Thanks, I used playing cards. On the first one I did I removed the wheel weights, but I didn't like how they looked unpainted so on the other three I just painted right over them

What paint (brand and color) did you use on the wheels to get that gunmetal color?

Do you know what paint code you used? I went to AutoZone the other day to buy some duplicolor but the paint they had in stock didn't match the code that I found on the internet that said it was for our color trucks. Just curious if you had found the right one. My autozone may not have the same thing as yours or you may of ordered yours online from somewhere? Just got some nfab step bars and I want to paint them to match the truck.

Duplicolor's code for MGM is BTY1619. The only parts store around here that stocks it is Pep Boys. It may say Magnetic Gray Mica on the label, but its the right color

You're truck looks great. I ended up getting a great deal on a set of Ballistic Jesters so my truck won't be Gray on Gray in a few days. I looked for the FJ Anthracites forever, but they are tough to find.

Ok, i'll go back and double check. That is the paint code that I have written down to get so maybe I was just paranoid that since the name of the paint color itself wasn't the same I was looking at the wrong thing.
