Mobi's White Lightnin

I know the title is dumb but I'm not very creative this morning, haven't had my cup of coffee yet. So here's what's up...I bought a 2007 Access Cab in October of '07. I've been wanting to do some things to it but didn't have the cash until now...so the build begins. I just bought a set of TRD 5 spokes cheap, planning to either paint them black or powder coat them...haven't decided yet. I got this idea from SilverBack's tacoma thread. Love the look and they were extremely cheap. I'm also going to add a Grillcraft mesh grille and black bull bar. I'm picking up a TRD hood today...love the look of those. Anyway here's a pic of how she sits today. Hopefully have more pics in the upcoming weeks.

Haha...that was my old 94'...she was a great truck. Had 320k on her when I sold her. The only thing I had to do to her was install a new starter...only problem I ever had. I think I only put 3 sets of brake pads on her too. She was rusting pretty bad and I was ready for a 4x4, so I upgraded. oh, and Ghost, your truck is Sick! Love it.

Well the guy I was getting the TRD wheels from is going outta town and can't seem to meet me anywhere reasonable to pick them up. So now I'm burnt on the idea. I'm thinking about just painting my current wheels black and removing the center cap, then throw a set of aggressive rubber on em and call it a day. What you think Ghost?

Picking up the TRD hood this afternoon...taking it to a buddy tomorrow so he can paint it next week. Maybe by next weekend I'll at least have a new hood on it. Might order my bull bar this weekend too.

Its an aftermarket. I took it to a friend of mine who owns a body shop and we compared it to an actual toyota. It looks dead on, the angles match, overall dimensions match...so I'm hoping it fits good.

Talking Hood is on...

Hey guys,

Got the hood on today. I'm really pleased with the turn out. Fit was awesome and quality seems good. I think I made a good choice. What do you all think?
