    nothing, all stock expect got a OE replacement air filter K&N.
    one day, my tacoma was rear ended twice by the same woman and dented the tailgate and the rear stock bumper.

    so i got these,
    TG front bumper low profile with light bar, sand down. primer and then use walmart truck bedliner to spray paint the bumper.

    installing at the moment:
    had it grind here and there to fit the bolt up holes, eventually for the driver side, one hole didn't line up with the bumper. i left open and one i use a different nut and bolt to hold it up.

    after the eibach swap, cv axles are at a bad angle even with the diff drop.

    after a few months later, contacted
    Billy at BruteForceFAb and had him made a custom 1st gen rear bumper.
    solid and peace at mind.
