    Nice. You didn't waste any time. How is that TRD cat-back working out for you? Is it a subtle growl or balls-to-the-wall?

    If you are going to take them off (it looks much cleaner), do it soon before you get that black residue from the mudflaps. :D


    Also, if you want to paint your emblems black, let me know and I'll help you! :D


    Mini mod day at Albert's house. :p


    Or yours. Or mine. :laugh:
