    It's been a while, but I finally ordered some rims. Hopefully have them on this Saturday. Thinking of wrapping them in 285/70/r17 Nitto Trail Grapplers. Going to a local tire shop and they will test fit some tires.

    Thinking of going with the All Pro bumper instead of the Fab Fours. Probably be ordering it within the next couple of weeks, truck should be looking pretty good once that is on.

    Here are the rims. 17x8s.

    Looking to upgrade electrical system now. Any comments/suggestions would be appreciated.

    The plan is:
    -full electrical upgrade
    - dual Optima YellowTop batterys
    - ArmorTech battery tray
    - Stage 4 electrical pack (http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/mar...available.html), with solar kit and 200a alternator

    After all that is in place, I figure my electrical component will be ready to properly handle a good winch and lighting system, so I'll be looking to replace my bumpers with All Pro armor and get some proper LED lights on my truck.

    Looks like it'll be a busy few weeks. In the last couple days, I've order most everything I need for my electrical upgrade and my new bumper. Really wanting the overhead switch console now so I can install some more OTRATTW switches for winch control and additional lights that will be on my bumper.

    Driver's side complete. Liking the result. I'm an accountant, not a welder, but it looks pretty clean to me.

    Winch ordered. Hopefully will have it and my All-Pro bumper on shortly. It's looking like all my recent orders might show up all at the same time. Winch, switches, ATO dual battery bracket, Stage 5 electrical upgrade kit. It'll be busy times wrenching on the truck over the next weekend or two.

    First post updated. As soon as I get the new Rigid lights on, I'll hit up the trail and get some new pictures.

    I went back and forth quite a few times, for the moment, I decided to leave it. I'm going to get some colour matched paint in the next week and touch it up. Down the road, maybe I'll get the powder coating re-done. It'll probably stay like this until I get a rear bumper and I want them to match.
