    I bought my 2011 ext. cab in April, and 2 months later I already made some changes:

    Daystar 2.75" spacer lift (upfront)
    255/70 R15 General Tire-Grabber AT2
    Cragar soft 8 15x7 Black series
    Tinted front windows

    Future mods:

    Blacked-out Badges with Plasti-Dip
    1.5-2.5" Rear Add-a-Leaf Lift Kit
    TRD exhaust
    OEM Fog Lights
    Black grill
    weathertech floor mats


    I just need more time and $$$$$:D

    I love the black steelies! Could you tell me more about them? How much, their offset/backspace, did you need spacers, do center caps fit and are you happy with them? Just got my magnetic grey, reg cab base model a few days ago and would like to get black steelies and a little wider tires without messing with the suspension. Nice truck man!

    thanks man, the wheels are cragar and I found a good deal in summit racing ($45 each), 15X7 backspace 4" and offset 0, my mistake was not calculated the offset before buying....you need at least 4.25" of backspace to avoid the spacers....I have 7/32 thick in aluminium.
    They sell a center cap in chrome, but I want something black for these wheels....I still looking ...any idea?
