    Added a few things. Thanks to all for your suggestions. OEM rack, Avid sliders and lightbar, TRD seat covers, and American Flag decals are the most noticable. Now I need to save for a skid plate and a small lift. I also plan to get a 2nd pair of offroad tires and wheels so I can swap for rides. Let me know what you think. Hopefully, pic to be attached.

    Almost forgot. Special thanks to Brandon at Avid. Great products, communication and suggestions. Also, thanks to Carter Powder coating in Elizabethton, TN. Less than one day turn-around.

    Thanks. Wouldn't have guessed 0-4 but the division is still open.

    I have nfabs but im thinking of getting bolt on sliders like yours eventually. Im curious would bolt on sliders protect at all with light off roading? I wanna start offroading someday and i know the nfabs wont cut it but i didnt really get the welded bars.

    I have bolt on Shrockworks sliders and they are really really good. I use my jack on them and they are solid. Can't comment on Avid's but I'm sure if they bolt to the frame they would be great.

    aarwolf, truck looks really nice. Love all the mods

    The avid sliders bolt on at 3 points with a total of 6 bolts. They should hold a good bit of weight and offer better protection than N-fab. Not as sturdy as the weld on but a nice option. Let me know if you want so better, close up pics.

    The Avid sliders he has bolt on to the body in the same locations where the factory running boards would mount to (I have Avid bolt-on's too).

    I will get those pics tomorrow. Going to go try things out at the end of the month. I will let you guys know how they perform. The OEM Rack I think was $265 but I bought several things at once from Toyota so I am not sure.

    thanks. I actually got the badges off ebay from a VW store. I will have to look up the exact name but at the time I bought all they had for $4 a piece. They fit great and I think they look almost OEM on the silver tacoma.

    dubstopimports on Ebay for the flags. Go USA! They gave me a deal bc I bought so many. Feel free to reference my username if it helps. The more US flags out there the better.
