    I definitely do not need new tires, but a local guy posted up some general grabbers on CL for a fair price. Got about 2/3 tread left, asking for less than 2/3 of the cost. Went to check them out and they are just as advertised. Soooo, I couldn't help myself. Should be able to get a decent number for my tires, they're practically new.

    You need to post some new pics, man, what are you on now? I just saw lowered shots from your build thread.

    I am wondering what fog lights you used. I want to install them on my 2010 access cab. Also, did you use the switch that came with them?

    I got amazon ones, i think it was these guys. Came with the OEM style switch http://www.amazon.com/Lights-Replac...9455&sr=1-1&keywords=toyota+tacoma+fog+lights

    Pretty easy to install, took a little bit of doing, but there were some really helpful youtube videos I dug up, and some helpful comments in the reviews.

    Nice! Now you just need to get that shiny white truck in some mud and put it all to the test!

    A couple updates. Tinted the taillights and got a seat cover from a TW member (thanks disc0monkey), lumbar support makes a HUGE difference.
