    Finally did a "Mod" to my Tacoma! Can't thank everyone on this forum enough for all the great information and insight. So much knowledge in one place. Its really amazing. Before discovering this forum I would never have the guts to do something like this.

    Special thanks to HomerTaco for this grill. It really is a work of art. Pictures don't do it justice.

    Added the T-Rex 2 headlight covers. I know its not everyones cup of tea but I like them.

    Also did the horn relocation and blacked out the A/C condenser.

    Next is lift and tires!!!:D

    Why do people cover their license plate number on this site? Do you actually think we're going to come find you?

    I'm just curious.

    And? What exactly are they going to do with your plate number? Make a prank call to the police about a hit and run you weren't involved in?

    I just don't get it. It's not valuable or sensitive information.

    If someone really wants to find you they will. That has always been my philosophy. Hence why I don't have any of my plates blocked. It bothers some people if other people know, and I can respect that. It doesn't hurt anything to cover it up or leave it uncovered...

    Thanks for the compliments guys.

    I know covering the licese plate might be overkill but I have had friends get a bill in the mail from some toll road or bridge that takes a picture of the license plate as you pass by. The automated system then bills the person the vehicle is registered to. The intersection cameras that look for people running red lights works the same way too

    Fair enough. Whatever bangs your shutters. Tickles your pickle. Floats your boat. Jiggles yer Jello. Blows yer hair back. Pitches your tent. Whatever peels your banana. Fluffs your flannel. Tickles your fancy. Blows your skirt up. Jacks your lumber. Plasti-dips your wheels. Flips your burger. Whatever rocks your socks. Bakes your cake. Lights your candle. Pulls yer trigger. Cranks yer tractor.

    You know, whatever you're into.
