    Ok. I just got my 2011 TRD DC offroad 4x4 Tacoma last friday. (12-17-10) My first mod was the BHLM (NO FEAR!!). One week old! Here is some pics. I will post some more when I have daylight. I also plan to do a RCD 4.5 lift. Any comments on doing it yourself? Headlight mode was pretty easy. Give it up to Toyota making it easy to bolt on/off. Idiot proof!!

    Also is a picture of my wife's 08 Lexus RX350.

    My brother is helping with the mod.

    BTW- I used Kylon BBQ stove and grill spray paint. Did the mod in 3 hours. The paint dries in 15 minutes and with stands temps up to 1500 degrees. Has a nice shine also.

    They are 285x70x17. Rims are 17x8. Doesn't rub on front mud flap so that was important to me. I am sure if i offroad i will take them off, but for daily driving it works. It drives awesome. Thanks for the compliments.
