    Thanks a lot man! Super White is a great color to have, this is my second (first was a 2010 prerunner that I unfortunately sold). I got the better option imo this time though, white and tan interior versus the gray I had before. Tan looks so much better on these trucks inside. The white is a very easy color to keep clean and detail..most of the time. My last claybar session before compounding and polishing was disgusting. I'm not sure if it was surface rust or what but it was all over, didnt have that with my 2010 ever. Probably the new area im in, but hopefully ya get yourself one! Its a damn good truck.

    Well, I was wrong, and stupid wrong at that. The rubbing was on the plastic inside the wheel wells, not the sways. I should have known that. I gutted both front sides and cut off the tab on the bottom with some snips. Whammo, Full turning radius without any rubbing. 33x12.50 will fit all day long. I have about 3 fingers worth of space at full turn to play with as far as the sway bar goes.

    Welp, i heeded the advice. I did the blm. All i have left on my plans now is painting all the chrome to white. The chrome is growing on me a little, but I still hate it. I painted the grille emblem black, stripped the emblems off, and painted the tacoma emblems and put them back on (just the sides). I also bought aftermarket tail lights from LMperformance. Unfortunately, I dont have any pics of the rear yet, but im working on it. Here are some more before I put the rear tail lights on.

    Great man! I got them cheap too which makes them even better. The only thing was that they couldn't be balanced 100% because they were so heavy. I love the hard compound and they are awesome in rain, mud, and snow.

    I had to regear, I couldn't stand the bogging out all the time. 430s are turning out to be an awesome match.

    Good to hear you like them. I've been eyeing those tires for a while now. As soon as I get back to the states I'll be pulling the trigger!
