I really wish I would have sprayed mine before I put it on but I wasn't thinking about it at the time because I was excited to see what it looked like on the truck. Not that we have to worry about salting the roads down here or rust but it would have matched the grill, lights, and lower valance. When it gets a few chips on it I'll probably pull it off but it's too hot here right now and I'm just being lazy at the moment lol. I should have done it the other day when I mixed the spray for the rear bumper but it didn't cross my mind until it was too late.

I used this and just removed the rubber arms off the back and used heavy duty 3M tape to hold it in place. Works great since the phone is at my fingertips and it is "bluetoothed" (is that a word? lol) to my GPS for hands free operation.




Like my custom seat covers?

You gotta get 285's on that thing and it will look unreal!
Thanks man. When these tires wear out I might put 285's on it and maybe 5100's front and back. I don't off road much other than light trails so I don't need anything extreme. Right now Retro's are in my future. I'm just being lazy and not calling and ordering them.

They are stock size. I got a nail in one of the oem tires and it was close to the sidewall and the shop that I use couldn't guarantee that the patch would hold. The stock tires had close to 30k on them and weren't wearing all that great and I didn't want one new tire and 3 old ones so I got these mud tires because I'm a poser Plus I had just bought a new set of Thule traction cables and didn't want to go up a size and waste the $200 I spent on those.

Nice tires, especially if you kept them stock size because they sure don't look like it. And no lift either?

Thanks...


No lift other than the TRD package. I might go with some 5100's all the way around some day just to level out the front just a bit. It rides too good and I don't do any real off roading so anything else would be wasted.

Nice looking truck. I love the look of the front end - blacked out grill and valence. On your truck looks as good as any satoshi mod I've seen.

Thank you very much! I would love to do a satoshi mod but I've got the wrong grill for it. Thought about buying another and doing the mod but this one turned out well so I think I'll leave it alone. I'm about to order my Retro's this week and start on that project. The lights will be completely blacked out once I'm done.

Sweet looking truck. Love the light will be ordering one for mine. Im going to have to figure out how to make it a flat black to match everything else going on the truck. I might have missed it but what bed cover did you go with?
