Help start build

well I wrecked the front end of my 08 trd double cab so no better time to start customizing

the truck is black and I'm looking at Changing at few things

I need headlights and like the look of the black projector lights does anyone have these and what do you think of them
do they use regular bulbs or something else

also will be getting a grille I have seen a couple blacked out sport grilles and also the ones homertaco does I like both of these just interested in other options

I'm going to spray bedliner the new front skid and possibly the rear bumper so they are black unless someone has a Better idea


any help would be awesome

Also how do you think a red pinstripe or two would look

I wonder if the Rugged Trails contributed to the accident. Mine caused several really close calls until I decided to replace them.

Hmm...Good point! But what I meant was that by the picture, you see that the truck is a 2008 "Rugged Trail Edition", aka black fenders, black baja wheels, and the mountain trd decal. I am the proud owner of one of these trucks too!

Yea...thats courtesy of the stock tires, the BFG Rugged "Fails." I'm running Bridgestone Dueler Revo 2s and they stick pretty well to the road, and my next tires are Toyo Open Country A/Ts.

As for the truck, definitely get a black sport grille, look into the newer honeycomb ones that come of the 2011s?...I think? And I bedlinered and spray-painted my skid plate black and I think it looks great, because that weird silver color always bothered me. As for the headlights, look into the Black Headlight Mod (BHLM).
