    It's taken 5 freakin years to get my Taco to a point where I would show it to anyone. Pretty simple stuff but it's taken forever! Just got the 5100's installed today with the Kumho KL71 muds. Bilsteins set at 1.75 w/265-75/16 and the rear leaf TSB. Truck came out pretty much at 0 rake. I'm thrilled. Love the Kumho's...much better on-road manners than I ever expected. The shop did a great job on the camber setup and the 5100's rock! Last photo is my emblem mod with the V6 in red twist. Other stuff include TRD CAI, AR Mojave's and Gibson exhaust (sucks). :)

    I also can't find a discrete center cap to save my life! Suggestions welcomed for anything on the market or fabbed that will fit in that cavern of a hub.

    the only prob i have had with my caps is one of the clear protective coatings fell off the name in the center.
    mine rims have only been off and on once.
