    Daytime Running Lights Mod
    Pop n Lock Tailgate Lock
    Tacoma Door Sill Protectors

    Added Black Westin Bull Bar this weekend - the wife isn't crazy about it but I love the look. :)

    LED 3rd tail light still hasnt arrived (today maybe?), Black Headlight Mod should be next to finish the front.

    I want to swap the exhaust for the TRD exhaust - anyone do that and not like it? I know there are other choices too.

    Still undecided about a 3" lift - how drastic it will be, will it make me want new wheels and tires?...

    Westin Bull Bar Mod:
