    Who else has been doing it? I put over 2 grand into my truck this summer. Chrome side step bars, a new windshield, new 710 cranking amps battery, new weathertech floor mats (these things rock if you live by the beach), new stereo, iridium spark plugs, new cabin air filter, k&n recharge, and new tires (plus a new spare tire because my full sized spare was 5yrs old).

    Now I'm thinking about getting a new grill and I'm saving up for a Leer XR with window sliders and a roof rack for surfboards. Does it ever end? Any grill suggestions? :D

    Why didn't you just run that in straight? You still cant get the tailgate up and I bet your gas milage was horrible. (Well if you had to drive for any distance).
    My 2008 R1 fit in my dc/sb perfect lined up and I still got 22mpg doing 1300 mile round trip to indiana and back on several occasions.

    It never ends...


    To the point that I am now ordering things that will be delivered when my wife is not home (so I dont have to hear about it) - FJ TRD Centercaps will be here in a few hours ;)

    I have had lots of hobbies and I have always been into fixing/modifying but this Taco is a freaking disease.

    BUT I LOVE IT!!!
