    Looks awesome! I'm gonna do the same to my valence... I just got bumper plugs for my holes on the bumper... I was going to suggest to you to do the same for a complete look. At lowes in the misc. section of the hardware bins is where all the plugs are...

    Looks great!

    I'm actually required to have a front plate in Texas. I just took it off for the pics.:cool: Good catch though!

    I had an uncut vinyl decal sheet laying around. You can buy some off of sockmonkey.


    It's off an '03 celica. Got it on ebay

    Thanks for the comments everyone!

    Looks good! Are the side mirrors and grill surround painted, or did you get them off someone with a TRD sport?

    Where did you get those yellow fogs? Does anyone know where I can get those? And how do you like them?

    KPT does your truck have any kind of lift on it?

    Any rubbing issues with the 18 x 9 wheels and those tires?

    Did you use any wheels spacers with those wheels?

    Could you post a photo of a shot directly behind the truck so we can see how far the wheels/tires stick out past the fender flares?

    Thanks for any info...

    That's a sweet ride u have:)

    Grill surround I bought from TRDparts4u.com

    Thanks. I do not have a lift, and I have no rubbing issues. The tires stick out about a half an inch from the fenders (no spacers). I will get some better pictures and post them tomorrow.
