Gotcha, ya, I know that's an option but on the few occasions I'd want to cram someone back there (as a college student doing stupid shit ) I want something a little "cleaner" and permanent.

Instead of derping the wheels: lightly sand and spay em. If you take your time and work with a decent paint and clear coat the final product will look professional at not even half the cost.

Good idea might have to look into that. Kinda thinking i would just get them powder coated.

Ive had great luck painting wheels in the past. I always used brake caliper paint since it tougher. Satin black works great, did a buddys subaru a few years back and they still look great.

It really looks complete with the color matched grille. Took a little searching but i found a toyota dealer that was selling a new genuine toyota complete grille that they had color matched. It sucks that toyota doesn't offer Barcelona red painted parts like the other common colors.

^ I was wondering how they color matched that. Didnt think they sold that color. Looks badass

Also, did you install the magnaflow yourself? I have the same one, on my 08. The exhaust said he had to do a bit of cutting and welding on the 4 cyl. Yours as well?

I had to cut about 10 inches off the magnaflow up front by the flange since it was to long. Also had to reuse the flange from the factory catback since the magnaflow one was different. Still very happy with the sound and the final fit and finish.

Thanks, that's the look I was going for. Something that didn't look over done.

Love the way your truck sits. I ordered the same lift kit as yours. most trucks i see with the 5100's all around dont sit like that though. did you do anything else to get it like that? also what notch do you have the front shocks on?
ooh and do the cambergs do anything to make it sit differently? or is it just better for the suspension?

The bilsteins are on the first notch, since i have the toytec adjustable coilover kit. i have them turned up to a full 3" lift over stock. Measured against the stock ones at the dealership. Rears just old man emu full leafs for lift. The Camburg arms don't effect lift height they just help add castor and camber. Castor was a bit low even with the arms since im at a full 3" lift. That and they help get a little more down travel since the stock ball joint limits down travel, that and they look good too.

Got bored and decided to flex a little on the rock display at the local dealer.
Also finally got my new handles back after painting.




Loaded up for riding this weekend.

I love the look of your truck man!!! What do you have done to the headlights and fogs to make them look black? Also did you smoke the rear taillights yourself? Hopefully mine looks similiar to yours one day
