    Yes 3" fenders and bedsides. I was on the fence with 6" but decided it was a little too extreme

    Is that a custom MESO Snorkle or is that the one from Sloop?

    I love the look and also am looking into 3" from mcneil with a snorkle.

    You always do such a great job!

    I made it. I saw SLOOPS but I hated how far it came forward on the fender. Mine drops right in as minimal as possible.

    Yeah I would say 6” is a little extreme. Hopefully putting a LT on mine at some point in the next year or two. So I look forward to seeing what you do with yours

    So they are already sold locally or you are only selling locally.
    Curious as to what you may be parting with I’m only 30 min away... what’s on the list :evil:

    I’m Getting ready to do some installs in the next week or so But nothing crazy like your newest project. Getting my kings, icon ucas, rxt springs and 33 wheels and tires installed whenever I get the wheels delivered. Still interested to see what ya got tho.

    I'm loving how tight your have the hole for the snorkel, I'm curious how creative you're going to get to solve the issue of water going down the pipe

    Have you thought about a matte color wrap while you are already replacing the fenders?
    I love that color that was on your 2nd gen.

    Already have the wrap. Did the Grom to test and it’s the perfect color. After all glass is fitted I will be wrapping it

    Doesn't the Tacoma have a drainage in the air box intake like the Hilux?

    So sexy

    Dropped off the truck yesterday to have all the heavy lifting/welding done. When it gets back I'll do final fitment of the glass, pull the bumpers, clean everything up and vinyl wrap it.

    There is an additional fiberglass piece that takes that spot

    Awesome thank you for clearing that up. I’ve been looking at doing this once I figure out the intake/snorkel. Not as resourceful as you so that parts been a struggle lol
