    And this it so far. Skid Plate, Bug Shield, Vent Visors, Running Boards, Roof Rack, Bed Extender. Weathertech digital fits on the way. Next up, some new wheels & tires, possibly a little lift.

    Open to any suggestions!

    I thought about removing the mud flaps, but it looks like there is already evidence of rubbing that will leave marks and lines once I do remove them. Besides, I'm a little worried about rock chips. I may try trimming them down a bit though.

    Ya know, I have been seriously considering this! I think the wheels and tires first though. I do like the idea of color matched grille, where can I pick up the color matched 2011 grille for a decent price?

    Thanks for the link, I'll be making a call come Monday. I went ahead and ditched the mud flaps, though I wish I had a bit sooner. Not really any gouging of the paint, but a slight hint of a black rub line. Hopefully I can buff it out. If I don't end up cutting them down or putting them back on (possibly the rears), I may have some less than a month old flaps for sale.

    As for wheels, I am leaning towards the TRD wheels like on the TX/Pro package. I know you can purchase the gold ones, but are the black ones available for purchase?
