    You done a good job. Overall it looks nice and clean. Only one mod that I really think you f'd up on. Easily remedied too. Upgrade that rear window sticker to a tacomaworld.com one. :thumbsup:

    Under the passanger side front fender there is a big black plastic piece with all sorts of crazy bends in it that is used for the air intake. Go under your hood and look at the intake box. There will be a rubber tube going from the air box into the fender. To get to it, you need to take the splash guard down on the passanger side and remove two bolts to get it out. It is a pain in the butt but it defintely improves the performance, or at least sound, of your stock intake with a drop-in filter. Do a search for it on the forums and you'll find it. A lot of people say doing the elbow mod with a drop-in filter and removing the secondary filter is just like giving your truck an intake. There's no real performance gains IMO, but the intake sounds much beefier and not so much like a vaccum.

    Nice truck! Mine is nearly identical, but an '07. I especially like the way your wheels and tires look.
