    Just like the title says, I finally added the last piece to finish the exterior. All total it has the Grillcraft black mesh grill, blacked out headlights, debadged, black Westin nerf bars, a couple window stickers, and finally a set of Status Dystany S802 20x9 wheels with Yokohama Parada Spec X 285/50R20 tires. Only took me 2 years and 9 months! The wheels are based off this thread from Yonkpo, who I think you guys ran off. I PM'd him a few times and ended up buying the same wheels in a 20" instead of 22". I love the look of the truck and there is no doubt it's all street truck. The black inserts keep the wheels from being to bling-bling and the 285/50s tuck in there perfectly and give the truck just the wide stance and look it needs. Totally thrilled with how it all came together. And now the pictures.

    That's a good idea, I'll have try and find a picture of a Prerunner with them and see how it looks.

    I like the look, kind of subtle but you know a lot of thought went into it. Great truck.

    I've lived in CA all my life. I've never heard of anyone getting a ticket for not having mudflaps.

    In Kentucky it is illegal to carry an ice cream cone in your pocket. ;)

    So I really paid attention to mudflaps all day yesterday and today and I'd say easily 70% of trucks and large SUVs don't have mudflaps. I saw like 8 dodge rams without any and a few chevys and a bunch of tahoe/expedition types. So first chance I get the flaps are gone.
