    NEW Toyo TIRES Bed Cage to hold 120 LBS of sand and fishing rod holder, window air deflectors, Bug Deflector, & finally Avid Light Bar and step rails....
    :D :D :D :D LOL

    I was not planning any major revisions, but I got the fever to do some minor stuff!
    [​IMG]

    - New Tires - Toyos Open Country A/T (Great Highway Tires, Ultra Quiet great on snow)
    [​IMG]

    - Roof Rack
    - Custom made Bed Cage for 240LB Sand Bag Weight (It is icy up here!!)
    [​IMG]

    - EGR Hood Deflector (Great Unit, it does not touch the hood*)
    - AVS Window Deflectors (They fit and it took 2 minutes to put them on)
    [​IMG]
    Will the deflectors I increase my MPG now??:confused::eek::D


    * The EGR plastic clips turn as you tighten the screws; had to use 13 MM Flat thin wrench to keep them from moving. Otherwise the installtion would have taken 2 minutes.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    And let's NOT Forget the Tail Gate Clamp Mod (but I ordered the Bully Tailgate Lock) which I will add on top of the clamp. Up here the thieves are equipped with 5/16, screwdrivers, so the clamp alone may not be good enough.

    But thanks to all the contributors here for my BUILD START......

    I just Improved my Tail gate Lock; I originally placed the clamp as shown bya fellow Tacoman here. Then I purchased the Bully Tail Gate lock, but it did not work well by itself because it was too big and I could have shaken the tailgate off.

    So I placed the original clamp first, then I added the Bully and I locked it on top of the screw of the clamp. This way, you can not place a screwscriver to open the clamp!
    See Picture of the New Improved tailgate Lock:

    Where did you find that bull bar?

    I am debating on which color to go for?
    I am not planning to paint my chrome grille like you did, although I tink it looks great, so the black bull bar may clash with the chrome grille??:confused:

    I saw some of your photos with the black bull bar and it has 2 holes on the top for lights I assume. Which brand is that?
