    Aye, thanks for the feedback :) I'll answer both your questions on my lift and taillights.

    1. My taillights are after markets called Black Altezza's. Now I'm not trying to plug in a sponser or anything but I got them off of k2motor.com for about 90 buck's. THEY ARE WORTH IT! :D

    2. My lift is the Fatbob's 2.75" lift which you get get off their website for about $230 (Kinda of a hassle to install) But also worth it :D

    Hopefully that helped you :D

    Either one is very sig worthy. Especially that bottom pic.

    Nice 5 lug.

    So, I don't want to take away from SockMonkeys spectacular work, however I made these custom decals for my taco. I think they turned out great!! Now if only I knew how to print vinyl..:(

    Let me know your thoughts!

    Really like the build. Looks damn good. Do you have any rubbing problems with the tires? And did you re-gear it or does it run fine with stock gearing on the tires?

    I had to do the black box mod, to avoid rubbing but otherwise I haven't had any issues with them. and I average about 18 mpg street with the stock gears and larger tires, there is a power loss but I baby my truck by trying to keep it under 2000 RPM (maximum) when accelerating. I will re-gear when I get the money and time for it.

    As I said earlier, one of the nicest five lugs I've seen. Your truck makes it look good and I'm liking the color match shop. Btw, I'm holding you to those tailgate brake LEDs haha :D

    hahahaha no no no! mine's not clean at all! I mean it's probably cleaner than most, but I have all these black marks on the side of my truck from the rain on the asphalt. I picked out the pictures where the marks were least noticable

    Did another mod this weekend. Derp'd the roof and emblems. Still debating on whether to keep it or not
    What do you guys think of it?

    Gearing on a 31 really isn needed. I did 31's for two years on stock gears, then 32's on stock with aftermarket exhaust. 4.10's will get you some better acceleration but not a large gain. Look into doing LSD first so you can hook up better in the DEZ. As for your under 2k max. Don't be scurred to take her up to red line, even though max power is built around 4500. My Whitney has never been babied and still going strong at 170k.

    How is that Fat Bob's lift holding up? I just ordered one for my truck to get a little more ground clearance and stiffen up the rear end. I am not in Vegas anymore so you don't have to worry about seeing the same looking truck driving around haha. I also saw your pics on another thread with the color matched bumper. Looks real good dude.
