    Nice. Definitely yes on the BHLM and I'd say de-badge along with maybe 1.5" wheel spacers and it will look NICER!

    nothing cool
    I know you have some serious mod going on, but your truck looks clean and simple. The wheels and tires along with your slider/steps look badass. The Rugged Trail Edition with those fender flares looks nice with a black truck.

    Opinions on these Ebay lights: Only 95 bucks. I may only get what I pay for but if I silicone does anyone know how well they hold up. Much cheaper than me messing up my stock lights.

    That is some good looking truck!! The TRD wheels are slick and perfect for the Black Tacoma. I have an 09 DC TRD OR 4X4 BSP as well and your truck is as close I want to mod mine.

    Have you considered adding the window deflectors?

    Nice work!! :thumbsup:
