    I have finally decided on wheels. It has been a toss up amongst several different ones. My final two were these and the Dick Cepek DC-2's. I have decided on these because I am going to take all the badges off my black taco and match the red paint from these wheels to the badges. How do you think this will look with the red badges matching the red in the wheels?

    I think it will look pretty good... be sure to post pics...

    And don't over do it with too many accessories, the rims and badges should be just the right amount, more than that will be overkill...

    The Toyota emblem on the grille is just a clip on type thing. You could probably get it out without taking the grille off but it would be a pain. You're gonna want to take off your grille(if you don't know how, there's many satoshi write ups. It's super easy, just a couple snap locks) and then you can just unclip them from the back of the grille. Really easy. Will take about 2 minutes total.

    the grill emblem comes off with two little clips, just unsnaps.

    those wheels look good too!

    I decided to stay with 17's due to the cost factor down the road for new tires.

    I actually saw the above wheels on another Tacoma and I really didnt like the way they looked. A little too "clowney" for me. I am glad I did see the other truck because I almost ordered them. Anyway I have finally picked the wheels that I am going with. They have been ordered and paid for so no turning back now. I will post completed pics of my Taco with the new lift and wheels once everything is finished this Fri.
