    Bought my Taco about a month ago here is what I did...

    Bonetti 20's,
    Nitto 275/60/20
    Flow Masters Duel going out back, Stainless Rolled tip Extentions
    Leather Interior
    Billet Package Grill set
    OEM Hood Shield
    Extang Bed Cover

    What do you think about my Taco Grade it scale 1-10. What else do you see it may need and what does it have you don't like?

    Do I need OEM Mud Flaps bought them but don't want to put them one as yet not sure if it would look good.

    What would help it look better is take off the step bars and hood shield. IMO

    Looks good, again not a big fan of the wheels, but overall your truck looks very clean! I give you an 8....


    I'd give you a 9 if you get rid of that OEM bug deflector. Being able to see those mounting points on it is a big turnoff to me. Either scrap it or find an aftermarket :)

    But hey, your truck is an insight into your personality, don't let us build your truck for you :p

    Yeah...
    5 for like factor. Big rims, chrome, and tube steps on a 4x4 aren't my thing.

    9 for respect factor. What I think doesn't matter- You worked a bit to get this truck the way you wanted it- Good on you!!

    Don, you the man...

    I went with 20s for the simple reason I'm not going off road anywhere live in Northern Florida, I moved here from Nevada and if I was there it would have a lift with 33 inch tires one it for rock crawling.

    Bug shield not a big one for me either. What does everyone think about the xhaust X2 going out the side like the factory? Thanks for all the input it really is a big help. I like the good the bad and the ugly... I also want to thank ones for the Front tag comment...GO HUSKERS:D

    I'll give you a 10 for the same reason as Don. You put forth the effort to make it unique.

    However, it's definitely not my cup of tea. I don't like 20's on these trucks but again, you hooked it up how you wanted it. It certainly doesn't look bad at all, though.
