    Since then:
    -removed the grille guard and rear lamp guards (have been sold to another member, kept the short antenna due to garage clearance
    -changed out front spacers for bilstein 5100's on all 4 (front set at 1.75)
    -rear leaf TSB (not sure if it was done in old pic or not yet)
    -color match front grille surround and rear bumper
    -Bestop (mostly only for long trips or camping)
    -Wet Okole Seat Covers
    -Tacoma all weather mats (wore a hole in drivers)
    ---Changed to Weathertechs, I like them much better!
    -Sony Touch Screen head unit
    -Duratracs 267/75/16 C-load, (I got 40k out of the rugged trails and they go down to the wear bars)
    -CBI front Receiver Hitch w/ winch and mount

    It looks like it sits a little nose high, but it is actually pretty close to dead level. I think it might be the slope of the driveway

    Thanks! I know it is a pretty modest build, just enough to do what I want it to do.

    One problem solved... after knocking the trailer wireharness connector off, relocated to bumper using hole from left license plate lamp, also switched out bulb in right lamp to slightly brighter to compensate
