    Where's the grill? LOL

    know there isn't much one can do with these trucks to set them off from another. everyone seems to do the same mods and ending up looking lik each others trucks anyway. Not a big fan of the bull bars either. Afraid they will cause more damage in a front ender than wanted to another vehicle and the Taco.

    Love the black theme though...grind the paint off the fender flares and you will truly have something different,

    I agree man! The mods we do are only making them more like someone else ON TW but not necesarily in our cities tho. I only know5 or 6 people with moded tacomas here in my city all different colors and i know people come up and compliment the truck its cuz it is different than the other 5thousand+ here in el paso.

    HaHa...
    I really like the look of the westin + lights
    But they do seem to be pretty hated here on TW i find it pretty strange... I have it on there completly for the look not really for the use lol but i'm def keeping it for a while till it tires me out but well i guess since everyone hates them that makes mine difrent? Lol ultimately thats the point ;]

    I get it...LOL Mine is different just because its not color keyed. Not too many TRD ORs that have bare Tupperware. I look at it and wonder what I can do and come up empty. I don;t want to change something simply for aesthetics without function (learned this with my bike).

    For example I don't care for the chromed Westin step board on mine but I don;t want to replace it with a black one "just because"...I wish the previous owner had left the stock black wheels on it as well. But I am not spending $1200 or more on wheels to replace perfectly good wheels.

    I do want to go darker on the tint though.

    If YOU like the Westin Bull bar that's all that matters.... Around here not so popular but color keyed everything is...go figure. LOL

    i say love the ride you got!

    If efficiency makes you love it more or aesthetics does the trick different strokes for different folks you know how it is! But we all love the taco's!
