    Alright, so my girl is getting me something for my truck for my birthday next week... somewhere in the $150-$200 range.

    I was thinking of getting a painted 2011 honeycomb grille from the guy at town & country toyota for $185 shipped (currently have the ugly ass 2010 grille, which also has a small rock chip on the painted surround)

    Any other suggestions?? What else could I get in that price range??


    FYI - My truck already has... weathertechs, tonneau, tube steps, tint, wheels/tires & lift, taillight guards

    I thought about doing a grillcraft, or getting one from that guy on here who makes/sells his own... but I don't want to put money into my current grille since it has a damn rock chip

    Light bar is definitely an idea

    Already have a bed mat, forgot to list that one... Scanguage is definitely a good idea as well.

    I am also considering N-Fabs, to replace my tube steps (then sell the tube steps).

    Ultraguage and a light bar with what you saved over buying a Scanguage. You'll probably be over $200 with the two of them though... Bedmat if you don't have one already. Do you need any hitch accessories like a shackle?

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    I'm liking the gas hood struts (Group Buy on now and fairly inexpensive) to keep the hood up and take your girl ;) for a nice dinner somewhere.
