    I have the grillecraft grille. I fabricated a piece of sheet metal and welded 2 all thread studs on it and bolted it to my grille and added the TRD vinyl.

    I painted the inside of my wheels with flat black, so all you focus on is the front of the wheel and the same with the center cap.

    I scuffed my tacoma eblems and painted with black Krylon fusion.

    And heres my tail lights, I used 2 coats of night shades, most people do 3 to get them all the way black, but I kinda like the reddish tint and also you can put a clear coat on top to give it a shine.

    It took me 1 can, you have to buy 2 so they can make money off you.
    And it seems the cans are half full. You can get them at modernperformance.com

    The 04 tundra wheels that I got dirt cheap. I painted the center of them flat
    black and put my stock tires on them.

    Hey BRANT, did you lift your truck at all or is that stock and what size tires are those? I'm wanting to buy bigger tires that would fit now(stock lift) and lift my truck at a later date, that way I wouldn't have to worry about bigger tires after the lift. Your truck looks AWESOME!!!!!!

    My truck has a 3 inch revtech lift and those tires are 285/75 that's the actual size, but they measure 33'x11.5. And no those tires won't fit on your stock lift, cause those tires slightly rub my upper control arm and inner fender well, when I'm turning all the way.

    wat?
    question about the spray tint...do u think it would be ok to do one coat of that over the headlights to darken them up a bit, but not to the point of taking away from the reason they're there?

    I don't think that such a good idea, inless you use 1 very light coat. Then you might want to upgrade your bulbs. And if it wouldn't work you can always wet sand it off with 5000 grit and then buff it out with a rubbing compound, therefore that takes a lot of elbow grease. It's up to you man, but if you do let know how they turn out and again I wouldn't do it.
