    Here are the pictures of the truck as it stands now. First things first, removed the front mud flaps, front license plate, cleaned the headlights using the Turlte Wax Headlight Restoration Kit, and ordered the step-up bars which are delayed in shipping! Frustrating!

    Beginning Side.jpg

    Beginning Rear.jpg

    To DO List:
    New Tires debating... Either BF Goodrich AT KO or Nitto AT in a 265/70 17
    New tires will go on Tacoma Aluminum Alloy wheels, sitting in boxes in my garage, again Frustrating!
    Install Step-up Bars.
    Install a 3 in. leveling kit.
    Complete repaint in the next month. Waiting on Body Shop to call, can't say frustrating, Dad owns the shop and my brother is the painter, can't complain when it's on the cheap by the best Body Shop around!

    To Decide...Do I want to do anything to the front of the vehicle???
    Brush Guard...Grille...so many options...

    Before and after shot of headlight cleaned with kit mentioned above. very happy. $10.00

    If it was me I would go with the BFG AT or Goodyear Duratrac's if your wanting a meater tire. Never been a big fan of the trail grapplers.

    Loud as fuck, but a pretty good offroad tire. Get a hold of MontanaTaco. He has them on his truck right now. Other than being super heavy, they seem nice.
