My 2013 Tacoma Build PICs...

Just had my truck for about a month now and these are some of the things that I have done to it:
Debadged the rear and side emblems.
Added the BackFlip HD tonneau cover
Foglight mod and replaced bulbs with Nokya 2500k
Replaced shift knob with Lexus IS300 Knob
Color matched grille
Panted door handles and trunk latch
Replaced reverse, license plate, dtrl, parking, third brake, and interior lights to LEDs, THANKS to csjumper2003
Painted the headlight housing color match the vehicle, wanted to be different and left the parking light part chrome
Did the retrofit D2S Morimoto Ballast and bulbs 4300k with Gatling Gun shrouds. Thanks to AndrewTRS and Theretrofitsource
Painted tail lights half red half clear, left reverse clear and sprayed a light tint of smoke on top.
Replaced side mirrors with signals and smoked the lenses.
I hope yall like my ideas and creation.... ENJOY

Everything looks great especially the headlight. Painting the rear chrome bumper would make it look better.

Looks good the way it is though, I like.

Thanks guys for the inputs. I replaced my oem mirrors without turn signals to the ones with signals and I smoked the turn signal lens a little. Im going to get the chrome bumper painted soon. That's the next thing that's going to be done to the truck

Was it already wired for turn signal mirrors since they come on some models or would I be able to pull that off on my '11? I've wanted to do the same thing with my side mirrors.

I thought mine didn't so I looked on this forum on how to wire them. There is a connector for your turn signals near fuses under kick panel on drivers side that you can slice into to get them to work. When I took my door panels off and checked, mine came pre wired for the turn signal mirrors so I didn't have to do any wiring.

I bought a set of chrome door handles and trunk latch covers. Sanded chrome off and painted them to match vehicle. It comes with this strong double sided tape, once stuck on it is hard to get off so make sure you align it right. Its been on there a few months now and it holds up pretty well. I didn't have time to take my door handles off and paint them so I did it this way so I made sure they were dried before putting them on.
