    I just got my cap and I'm having a dificult time getting used to it. It just makes the whole vehicle seem too white.

    I started goofing around and came up with this:

    What's better, Krylon or Rustoleum? :D

    You're right Nugent's got it going on, and seeing that you're from Long Island I would say Rustoleum :D

    A lift and black wheels would change the look of the truck a lot.

    Yeah, the most rust resistant would be the best choice :)

    I would love to lift the truck (I know it's a long, low station wagon) but I had a bad experience lifting a different vehicle once and I don't want to go through that again. I bought a Toyota because I want something that will last. I don't want to compromise it by adding a bunch of non Toyota suspension components to it and then have to deal with all the squeeks, rattles and vibes that emerge two years later. I like to think that I'm wrong but I can't afford to find out the hard way.

    I also would like to add a front winch and bumper but at this point I think it would make the truck look even worse. :(

    I like it on yours better than mine. I hate having a high rise shell but cab hi doesn't cut it for me.

    The only problem with that is trying find your truck after you park it. :laugh:
