    Picked up my new 2020 Voodoo Blue 6MT Tacoma Today. I ordered her back in October so its been a long wait. First thing to do was get rid of the ugly stock wheels and upgrade the tires. Thanks to discounttiredirect for the awesome wheel and tire setup.

    Specs:
    Bronze Method MR701 Wheels 17/8.5 6x139.70 x5
    Falken Wildpeaks A/T3W 265/70/17 x5

    Got my Leer 100 XR installed today with front Slider Window, Two Windoors, Rails, Gas prop switch and Keyless entry.

    Installed the TRD Pro grill and Raptor Lights, I'm still troubleshooting the wiring on the lights but I was following this guide but I'm still having issues. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRbzCK66oko&t
    I'll take another look tomorrow to see if my wiring is all correct.

    I also removed the chrome badges from the side and rear. A hairdryer and fishing line worked perfect.

    Installed paint matched BumperShellz Rear Bumper Covers to hide the ugly chrome.

    Got the truck ceramic coated this week. Went with a two year for $950. I'm really happy with the results and the peace of mind of protecting the paint.

    Installed my Prinsu Cab Rack today. Took a couple hours and a friend to help. Unfortunately the rails on the camper are too wide(42") so I had to overnight the required hardware from CBI offroad. Measure the width of your cap rails before you order the top rack so CBI can send the correct hardware the first time. I'm excited to get both them on together tomorrow.

    Installed Pop N Lock Tailgate lock so the cap and tailgate both have key less locks. Ran into a couple issues during the install but my buddy was really good at troubleshooting and getting it figured out.

    My buddy also fixed my raptor lights and got them working. Really love the look.

    Well, someone egg'd my truck a couple nights ago. It really pisses me off and I don't know why someone would do this. I luckily caught it less than 30 minutes after it happened and was able to wash all of it off before the paint got too damaged.

    Unfortunately in the daylight I noticed there is damage from where the eggshells exploded. :mad:

    Whoever did that is a thoughtless shitheel.

    Blake, please feel free to PM me and I can coach you how to get those scratches out. Those are very superficial reflections in the clear coat that you can remove yourself with about 30 minutes worth of work. I don’t see any heavy damage, just swirls and residue.
