    None... yet. Well unless you count window stickers :)
    I bought my 09 a few months ago and I'm thinking about blacking it out with darker window tints, blacked out head/taillights, black wheels, debadging, etc. I'm kind of new here so I've been trying to find some tacos that look that way so I can see if I like it beforehand, but I haven't found much of anything... anyways, if your truck is like that or close could you post a couple pics i could check out? Thanks :)

    No its VERY illegal here. If its a sunny day you can see my hands on the steering wheel but not any further back. but if its cloudy or dark you can't see in at all. When your driving you don't notice that the windows are so dark. But at night when i back up I roll the fronts down so I don't hit anything or anyone. The guy i bought it fron had the tint done and said the ticket is about $300 for the windshield and $250 for the fronts. The cops haven't sai anything to me yet tho.

    I do that too. I don't know what my tint is (it was already on when I bought it and I forgot to ask about it), but it's really hard to see out of at night especially. It's EXTREMELY nice that people can't see inside though.

    not to paint em, a friend of a friend recently changed out the rims on her FJ and she cant get rid of her old ones and she offered the whole set for 80. you think powdercoating would be a more worthwhile expenditure?
