Well, I've been checkin out this sight for a while now, made a few posts but mostly just absorbed alot of info. Just want to say thanks for all that take the time to post these ridiculously detailed write ups. My taco is just a 2WD and most things I have done are for looks. I don't really go offroad. So, anyways...here she is!

Sorry for the pic quality, the wife took my camera out of town this weekend b/c she broke hers (hopefully mine comes back OK!)

MODS
Debadged
Removed mud flaps
BHLM
Anytime Fogs
Lamin-x Yellow Fog Covers
Grillcraft (re-located horns and painted radiator)
Black Bullbar
Spraypainted Stock Sport rims (FJ Centercaps)
265/70/17 Bridgestone Dueller AT's
Pop and Lock powered tailgate lock
Wet Okole's all around
Weather Tech's
Integrated blutooth phone/music with Parrot
Hardwired Garmin
Added bed lights
Rear TSB Leafs w/AAL
Front Toytec Coilovers w/5100's
Bed storage compartment locks

FUTURE
Nitto Trail Graplers (when I need new tires)
Spidertrax wheel spacers to accomadate above
Locking rear diff (still undecided on whether it's worth it)
Power sliding rear window
Tinted tails
LED brakelight b/t tailgate and bumper






















Don't know that I've seen it done like this before. I actually cut into the bed liner and recessed regular old driving lights from Autozone, they work great!

Yeah, I don't really go offroad. I just put them back there for loading/unloading stuff at night.

Well then. You don't have any functional lose with it. Is it easy to remove so you can see the difference?

You mean to remove the lights to show the dif. with and without them? No, they're siliconed in there pretty good. It works well b/c I can just pop the little cubbie right next to them out and reach behind to change the bulbs. They are really bright and work great for what they are there for.

I'm probably going to put another set of the same lights under the truck as reverse lights as well when I tint my tails.
