    FINALLY GOT MY TIRES AND RIMS!!!!! I'm so happy with the results!!! there were some struggles I should let you all know because I had to do some mods to get this to work! here's pictures below

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    At the first time around the rim scratched against the brake caliper and so i grinded that down about 2mm

    [​IMG]

    There was some damage done to the rim, but I grinded that down too and smoothened the inside so that it wouldn't scratch, but I'm very happy with the end results

    ALSO CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHERE TO GET 4.10 GEARS and WHAT WILL THEY DO

    31x10.5 Falken A/T's :D
    and I got the decal from Toyota
    I had the option of the sport decal or off road decal
    sport just looked better and if i ever got stuck offroading the off road decal would be hard to explain

    A couple rags or buffer head on the drill, and a bottle of polishing compound, unless they are coated aluminum, then use a cleaning compound.

    tint 35/20 colormatched (by me) grill.
    i think that is only 6 lug 4cylinders. i think our 5lugs have 3.XX im not exactly sure.

    when i colormatched my grill i took a dremel and took the surrounding part off of the middle part so i didnt have to tape anything. then i think i scuffed it up, sanded and primed. i also feel like i sanded the primer a little before going with the base coat. after the base coat i think i wet sanded before putting on the clear coat. i missed a few spots but they are very small and near the triangles but other than that i think it looks great especially since im no pro.

    Also I was thinking about removing the decal and maybe getting a TX pro decal for both sides. Why? well the TX Pro decal IMO looks crazy awesome
