    Yes sir name your price. It has a few scratches but I think it might just be car paint and I think it will wash of with some soap and a brush.

    I am not sure if it had any other brackets with it But I am sure Jorge at camel back could hook you up with that for sure.

    Thanks! Your truck is one of my favorites on here so I take that as a real compliment. I have your build book marked.

    From the factory.

    Near Future Plans:
    Retros (Placing the order today)

    Not so sure when future plans:
    Tires (285/75/16)
    Rear Bumper w/ swingout

    Suspension:
    -- Total Chaos UCA
    -- Icon Extended Travel
    -- Cab Mount Chop
    -- Something in the rear to add a little height but mostly just to increase load capacity.

    Roof Rack
    Full Skids
    Bed Cage (Maybe)
    Super Charger (Seems unlikely but a boy can dream)

    ^ Did you go AMBIGIOUS? I did my retros through him and thats the way to go. He is my #1 choice followed by AsianAnts as my second. You can't go wrong with either or for the work. ​

    Nice to see you going with upgraded suspension in lou of buying the Baja. Makes me feel good when I look into Fox or King haha. Cant wait to see those retros. Let me know the process I am very interested.

    I figure I will rock this out for a while but with all the weight in front I am sure it will dramatically shorten the life of my Coil overs. Plus with all the other stuff I want to do it will simply be too much weight on the truck. Also I didn't realize I was going to be modding at all when I bought my truck. I almost didn't join the forum out of fear this would happen. If I could do it all over again I would for sure have just bought TRD off road and modded from there.

    My biggest issue with upgrading the suspension is I don't want to spend $3000+ to get maybe 1" of lift over my current height. Then on the other side I don't want to do a DB lift either. Every time I figure out what I want I read or see something that changes my mind.

    As for the lights I have PM'd him and haven't heard back. I am assuming he is busy. Once I know more I will let you know.

    HAHA I share the same exact feeling lol. As soon as I got on here I was like OH FAK!!! should have gotten the TRD Off Road. I am still glad I bought what I bought because I know that I wont have to worry about suspension for a while and can get all the other stuff out of the way. For what it comes with stock I think it does very well.

    I am going to just chill for a while and see how the set up works. I was thinking that I can probably get the look I want from simply swapping out for some bigger tires and a cab mount chop.
