Very nice truck you got there sir. How about swap for factory smoked OEM headlights from a TRD Sport? I think they look even nicer on a white truck.

Sorry, I did not phrase that very well. I don't have a set to swap. I was suggesting looking into gettin OEM smoked headlights for your truck if you are nervous about doing BHLM.

Bummer haha, I have seen some on amazon that are already painted black but I have heard that they have problems with leaking, guess I could just seal them up myself.

Or you could do them yourself.

Check out my build, bear in mind i did retrofit projectors but the BHLM was easy as all hell if all you want to paint is the bezel.

Takes some balls to put those jokers in the oven but thats the worse part lol.

Yeah yeah I know, I think I could do it but seeing as my dad paid for the truck and I'm still paying him back I don't think the idea of sticking perfectly good headlights in the oven would be appealing to him... I'll give it a go when I get my own apartment next year and I have my own oven. Thanks for the advice though! Always appreciated.

Congrats! i also bought my dream truck in college- I could tell you about all the shit meals you'll be eating, the times you'll have to decide whether to pay rent or your truck payment on time, the extra jobs you'll have to work, and how your school work will suffer because of all of that... but i think i'll just say it sure as hell is worth it! great truck Kevin!

Got the muffler installed today! The only pic i have is of my friend welding it all together. We figured it was easier to un bolt it and remove it then weld it all together and bolt it back up. I'll try to get more pics and a sound clip in the next few days.

IMO I would take off the black fender flares if possible! Replace them with color matched ones or just leave them off, I think it will make the truck look way cleaner... Good start OP!
