No not doing anything because of anyone else. Not a sticker fan, but...
I like the look of the truck even though I am not a fan of them.

Right now, just looking for ideas. the only thing I am doing, is blacking-out all the badges this weekend, weather permitting. My previous vehicles I de-badged, but I like the Tacoma so just black-out badges to match the stickers and see how they blend. If I don't like the blackout its not permanent and they go back to original.

No! No supercharger. On youtube it sounds noisy and annoying. And if you choose to get one, wouldn't you need sportier tires vs. A/T tires for better road grip due to the added power?

I really like the interior. Except for discretionary upgrades such as a new head unit, I like it all. Door sills are cool, carbon fiber cool, stitching on headrests also cool. I even kind of like the wheels.

My personal thoughts - Stickers are a no-go but easily removed with a heat gun. Chrome bumper, hood scoop, and fender flares are a bit too much. Chrome exhaust tip is OK.

Nice purchase and welcome to TW!

LOL. In the drivers seat the added power from the SC and whining noise is awesome! My 02

I like that truck very much. Grats on your first new car.
If you don't like the decals , go to a detail shop , have them take them off and give it a little buff in case. I took my emblems off with fishing line. Sprayed a little quick retailer just in case , it keeps breaking the string but they come off pretty easy. Thoses fender flares look tight.

Thanks all for all the compliments and tips. Will keep posting updates. This weekend I should be able to black out all of the badges and we will see how it looks. Got the grill emblem done, just too dark for pictures.

The XSP-X is a Southeast Toyota thing, so anyone outside the 5 states (FL, GA, AL, NC & SC) really won't know about it. I'm actually surprised that the OP has one, being that it says he's from Kansas haha.

They are good looking and we sell everyone that we get. Congrats man!

LOVE the truck... good thing its mine. Wife loves the truck, also.

Other than maybe adding a leveling kit, and some in-channel vent visors (still deciding), changes to the truck will be minor add-ons.

Here are some blacked-out badges.

Congrats on the truck. I must not pay attention enough I've never even heard of this package lol.

If you showed me those wheels off the truck I think I'd say I don't like them. But on the truck in that color I think they look pretty good. The giant decal is really the only thing I don't like. The trim on the inside is sweet.

Well after some research, I went and got trail fx window vents installed and ordered my weather tech floor mats from Trucks and Moore in Augusta, Georgia, I also went to an auto-hell store and bought a stubby 17" antenna to replace the long whip. Trucks and Moore was Awesome place, got a good deal, good service, and good advice. When I come back in July I will have them install my leveling kit. Real nice guys I told them I would put the good word out for them, they have a website and ebay, covering orders all over the U.S.

Hard to tell from the picture but the LEDs are very bright at night. I drove around with just them on, because I didn't realize they were the only lights I had on, until I it got a lot darker and I couldnt see my console anymore.

XSP-X 2013 Toyota Tacoma-img_0147.jpg


The LEDs dim down when lights are turned on.

LED only are the daytime running lights (DRL). The button on my center console to the left of the "AUX" plug in.

I will post night pictures later on after I take some.

Just got a black XSP-X

I really like the truck minus the fact its an automatic, I really miss the six speed in the 06 I had but anyways the more i glance at the hood scoop on this thing it bothers me more and more and I'm trying to figure out the most reasonable (as in affordable) solutions to making it look at least a little bit less crappier and I would love any suggestions. One thing I checked out was the LED DRL kit for the hood scoop that looked the same as the LEDs already under the headlights but I'm assuming those only replace the section of hood scoop on the TRD sport. Another consideration was trying to find an aftermarket hood that had a functioning hood scoop but I havent really had luck in finding anything for the 2013's. Much appreciated guys
