    I cashed in my credit card points and got $600 back. I've narrowed it down to 4 choices:

    1. 16x8 Konig Countersteer wheels

    2. 16x8 Pro Comp 7028 wheels

    3. Bakflip folding tonneau cover

    or

    4. SAVE IT YOU FOOL!

    I've been saving these points for years so I figured I'd treat myself to something but of course, saving is better. Let me know what you think.

    Looks like we're down to the Konigs and the tonneau. Anyone have any final input to sway me one way or the other? I'm leaning towards the Konigs but BakFlip is offering free shipping right now and they just made their design better (aluminum paneling from the hd version is now on their G2). I'll probably end up flipping a coin because I want them both and they are about the same price.

    I'm not a big fan of the Konigs, they look to streetish IMO. I'd get the Pro Comps or like "cmack48" said, just paint your stock wheels....No backflip folding tonneau cover though :thumbsup: Reguardless what you decide i'm sure it'll look sweet :)

    The poll is too close to make a decision. Maybe price will help.

    Countersteers = $690 shipped + tax
    7028's = about $650 shipped, no tax
    Bakflip = $670 shipped, no tax.

    Damn this is hard. Any final thoughts or voters want to chime in before I bite the bullet? Other options maybe? (I'm not into the idea of painting my stockers b/c I want a wider stance w/o spacers and hate the look of the oem wheels)

    Decided to save a little and spend a little more. Getting Billy's all around and Tacoma cargo cross bars. Call me a tight wad but I couldn't drop $600 all at once.
