Is this a Throttle Body Spacer? If so save your money!!!!! The only performance gain you'll get out of one is the less weight in your wallet. Go with either a Volant, TRD or URD intake instead of a spacer.

Yeah, I am looking to replace my front left one on my PreRunner. I don't know what I ran over, but it tore a gash in my mud flap. Good thing the tires are more sturdy!

Fun thread.

Current mods:
- SP Performance slotted rotors w/ Hawk pads
- Thule roof rack w/ adapters for toys
- Roll-up bed cover
- Wet Okole seat covers
- URD short-throw shifter

Future mods: (long list with a short timeframe)
- TRD intake (ordered and on its way)
- Gibson exhaust (ordered and on its way. I know, I know. I don't expect it to last 2 years anyway)
- Donahoe Racing front suspension (stock upper a-arms)
- Demello Offroad rock sliders
- Demello Offroad rear bumper (unless I find an equivalent-strength, cheaper option)
- All-Pro Offroad 1.5" rear suspension kit w/ U-bolt flip & non-remote resevoir shocks
- All-Pro Offroad t-case and e-locker solenoid skidplates
- E-locker hack to allow engagement when not in 4wd-lo
- Custom front skidplate/pre-runner-style bumper with tabs for lights
- Racing fuel cell (should be fun to get this to work while keeping the bed functional)
- Full custom safety cage from back of the truck through and into the cab (the scope of this part has me sweating)
- Mastercraft suspension seats w/5-point harnesses
- TRD clutch
- Lights all around

It's gonna be a busy year. I expect that my mudflaps will take care of themselves.

Since I saw tires come up in this thread, I've been running the Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmors and couldn't be happier with them. Great on the road, and amazingly capable offroad. I've run everything from BFG ATs to Mickey Thompson Baja Belted HPs (worst tires ever) to Parnelli Jones Dirt Grips on my trucks over the years, and these Goodyears are the best all-around tires I've ever had. I'll be buying them again when the time comes.

Only had the truck for 6 months and it's my daily driver.... This thing won't be getting any lift kits anytime soon. I have a jeep wrangler w/ 35's for that.

What I've done so far:

Ipod2car adapter
Husky floor mats
Ruff Tuff clothe seat covers
Advantage torza tri-fold soft tonneau cover
Bed mat (not sure what brand it is)
Homelink Auto dimming mirror
Garmin Nuvi 660
Adapter for Garmin
Fumoto oil drain valve (waiting for next oil change)

What's to come within next 6 months:

Hood struts (on order)
Heated seats
Scangauge II

Someday:

Exhaust
Wider 'beefier tires'
Remote start
Heated mirrors
Running boards or rocksliders
Build up the guts to remove secondary filter.

I'd love to do all kinds of stuff - like the lighted 4WD switch, cargo/bed lights, electric rear cab window, wheels, tires, custom graphics, yadda yadda yadda...

I gotta pace myself or I'll run out of things to do! I'm gonna have this truck for a long time!
