    Hello Tacoma People...
    So I thought I would say hi and get some advice on upgrades. Here is my truck now.
    tacoma_zpsqdnatt8q_23c56323491475af1ffa0d4ab240fbb6d1ccdbf4.jpg
    Dust and all...lol. 2006 double cab 4x4 SR5 with V6.
    So, a few years back I had some hail damage and had it repaired and painted and the paint sucks. Peeling. I thought I would do some upgrades and you can give your opinion, suggestions, advice, if you want.
    Here are my ideas and some links.
    New headlights.

    New foglights.
    https://www.amazon.com/Spyder-Auto-...340617&sr=8-4&keywords=2006+tacoma+fog+lights

    New grill.
    https://www.customcargrills.com/Custom-Toyota-Grills.asp
    I like the perf SS in either gloss or flat. Haven't decided. Will probably add TACOMA in gloss or flat or either my OEM emblem and paint it black myself. Not really a fan of the chrome.

    The grill trim is chrome so will probably get it colormatched when my paint is done.
    Thought about black but ....naa. probably not. Too much...lol

    I have the aluminum LUND steps or whatever you want to call 'em. Thought I would get some black ones. Here is the nerf bar...or that's what they call it.:D
    https://www.amazon.com/Lund-2388429...83&sr=8-1&keywords=lund+steps+for+2006+tacoma

    I'm undecided about the tonneau cover I have. Sorta think it is dated and might get a new one. One of the black vinyl ones that folds up in sections. Any advice on which is good or if you would keep what I have would be great!

    Also looking at a bull bar. I see that many don't care for them. I sort of like this one but I might change my mind... that's the only sure thing about this. Me changing my mind that is.:rolleyes:

    Anyhow, if you want to help me out...thanks!

    Thanks MarX, there has to be a line between going over-board and wasteful and making improvements..or maybe that is the same. I dunno. I figure I need new paint so it's got to be the perfect time to try to upgrade some but how much is the question for me. My truck has long been paid for so I guess it will be less expensive than buying a new one.
