    Purchased the truck new in July of 2009. It's a super white SR5 Prerunner. Here's the day I brought it home.
    [​IMG]



    First set of mods was to ditch the Dunlops and add 265/75/16 Firestone Desination AT's. Also shown in this pic are my yellow lamin-x fog covers. Now, I'm not a big fan of chrome, so my rims, grille, and rear bumper we driving me crazy. First and easiest step was to buy a color-matched grille from TRDparts4u.com. While I was at it, I got color-matched door handles and bought some cheap chrome mirror covers from ebay, which I painted super white. I also debadged the entire truck.
    [​IMG]



    Next I installed what I call the "bumper dent mod". This mod took me only seconds to install, but proved difficult to uninstall. Therefore, I would only recommend doing this mod if you are really sure it is the look you are going for.
    [​IMG]


    After several attempts at uninstalling the bumper dent mod, I decided to just ditch the chrome one and buy a black bumper from Toyota parts barn. This meant the only chrome left was on the wheels. I took care of that by getting some 18 x9" BBS RW's off of craigslist. A guy near me had them on his '03 Tundra and didn't like the look. I had them wrapped in 265/65/18 Hankook Dynapro ATm's. This size is the same width and diameter as the popular 265/75/16 tires. Also shown in thie pic are sockmonkey bading and bedside decals.
    [​IMG]



    Here's a couple of home-made mods. First pic is a fishing rod rck I made out of a 1x8. It keeps my dog from tripping over the rods while she's riding back there. Second pic shows how I lined the back of the rear seats with indoor-outdoor carpet so my dog doesn't slide around when she's in the cab.

    Next set of mods was a set of black headlights made by Depo, along with a grillcraft and black vinyl front valence. I also added a magnaflow exhaust system and dumped the tip ofter the axle for a cleaner look.

    [​IMG]




    Got the rear leaf TSB done, and lifted the front with Bilstein 5100's set at 1.75". Also added 5100's to the rear. Also decided to paint my BBS RW's semi-gloss black. I think it turned out great.

    Nah it's all good.

    Yeah the back seat were pretty easy. I just bought indoor-outdoor carpet from Lowes, and used self-tapping screws to affix it to the back of the seats.

    My dog usually rids in the bed (she actually cries when she's in cab), but if it's raining, I want her in the cab with me, so this was an easy way to keep the back clean and keep her from sliding around.

    Thanks!

    I bought the grille and handles from trdparts4u.com. Grille was around $200, but they no longer ship grilles. The door handles were $170 for all four

    As for the mirror covers, I bought some cheapo chrome ones on ebay, sanded the sheen off of them, sprayed adhesion promoter, and color matched them with color-matched spray paint from the ebay seller spraycansunlimited. Perfect match for around $40.

    Here's a closer shot of my EFX Tri-fold tonneau. Bought it from member stevigee on here. Pretty much water tight and folds out of the way for the dog in seconds.
