    Pioneer indash navigation unit, Illuminated 4x4 switch, HID heads and fogs. Black leatherette GT seat covers. toytec Ultimate lift. Now its time to mod exterior.
    Got my first damage on truck wheeling in Frank Raines off road park.
    Scratches are deep and maybe I should stay off the atv trails? What does the TW world say. Any suggestions on a easy repair?:D

    Your truck is too nice and new to be on super tight trails, repaint area if you want it fixed. Stay on designated 4x4 trails.

    Definitely stay off the ATV trails, they're called that for a reason. ;)

    If you're offroading, plan on scratches, dents and possibly broken parts.

    That way next time you won't worry about a scratch on your bumper. :eek:

    Its a truck dude....and if you wheel, your gonna get some damage...comes with the territory. If you don't want more extensive damage, get sliders and bumpers (front/rear)

    How you like your DC2s? I like mine and love the stance, but the amount of bling is starting to get to me. Now I'm itching for more black. Damn TW influence!:confused:
