Nice. You didn't waste any time. How is that TRD cat-back working out for you? Is it a subtle growl or balls-to-the-wall?

If you are going to take them off (it looks much cleaner), do it soon before you get that black residue from the mudflaps.


Also, if you want to paint your emblems black, let me know and I'll help you!


Mini mod day at Albert's house.


Or yours. Or mine.
