    ok, would like to see something different today.

    I have already painted my stock rims and have them on the truck already. So yesterday i finally painted the center caps and today i painted the the toyota emblem in the center of the cap red. I know , I know, i have no pictures yet, letting them dry overnight. its not that unusual , but different. So how about some pics of unusual / weard stuff. May-be we'll have some laughs?

    This was my mod of the day. Not one that I wanted to do today but the F%$&ing deer jumped out from in front of the car next to me and I couldn't see it until it was too late.

    thats why i have the bull bar. had a push bar on my last truck, and hit a deer square in the front , then ran it over. instant death for the deer, my trucks left fender got dented alittle. but if it wasnt for the push bar, it probably would of looked worse than yours. still sorry to hear about your luck. up here in western NY it happens all the time.

    the cap looks good, will see how mine hold up tomarrow

    looks to me like the deer hit the corner, a bull bar would have done nothing for that. The bull bar will only protect the very middle...

    I think it hurt my confidence in my driving more than anything else. Ya the truck is banged up but our trucks are so tough that even with a big bruise like that it can still survive a 100 mile trip home at highway speeds. Scangauge didn't throw any codes and with the exception of one headlight not working I couldn't tell a difference in the way it drove. Most importantly nobody was hurt. Sorry Skistoy for hijacking your thread.

    I have what I call my "nightrider" mod. LEDs in my hood scoop connected to a strobe controller in my cab.

    Here is a pic of the making of the "mod" I guess we'll call it a mod. :D

    Yeah, I love the fuse box cover. I've seen the other mods you've done in the past, but the fuse cover is new. Great work all around! Care to share more on how it was made/obtained?
