Starting my Build, looking for suggestions

I have a 2010 Silverstreak Tacoma. I've had a 1992, 2004 and 2006 previously. Bought this new, but haven't done a thing to it with exception of just purchased and installed Extang Trifecta tonneau!! Also purchased and haven't installed yet a Silverstreak PopnLock tailgate lock with backup camera slot. My truck has less than 23K miles on it so there is still plenty of life left in it.


My 2006, I changed out the Cyclops brakelight to an LED, added black tube sidesteps, smoke window guards, barlight under tailgate and a bed extender.


I don't have the sidesteps on this truck as for me they were difficult being only 5'3" (always scraped the inside of my calf in summer) although I like the looks of them.


So this is what I've been thinking. Like to:
Change out headlights, tail lights and Cyclops light (looking to add some led lights but want them to be inside the light assembly. I've seen the led strips you can by, but not sure if they just look like an inexpensive add-on (wannabe something you're not look).
Add bully bar
Billet or other Grill
Barlight under tailgate (probably fire n ice)
wheels and tires, but nothing too dramatic as I don't really do offroad.
Probably won't do a lift as being a shorty makes it difficult to climb in.
Possilbly get Wet Okole seat covers in charcoal with turquoise full piping. (Wanted bright pink but thinking resale the color may detract from price)
Doubledin indash-GPS/Sirius/XM, Iphone compatable.
Angeleye Fog Lights


Saw pictures of a truck with the Toyota Grill emblem with horns on it. Where can I get one??


Not sure of products or best suppliers.
Do you have suggestions or ideas to customize my truck and suggestions of best products and suppliers.


Thanks. I'm ready to get started!!

I believe n fab and maybe avid offroad offer steps that actually have a "step" built into them and may work better for you. This way u can lift and not have to jump in or out.

On my phone and its a pita to post links sorry.

Would be nice..... Hate to see ya lose out on a lift over this.

U can also try the "toe pivot" move when getting out and avoid scraping ur calf and also good for avoiding getting mud on ur legs/pants from the sliders/steps.
