    i think it looks damn good. personally i thin the hood would look better if it were color matched but i like everything else. wheels look really good. i like the red and black theme. BTW, you have my exact camera!

    TOO MUCH
    ^Thanks guys for the response.
    I love the Carbon Fiber Hood for a few reasons!

    1. Tired of trying to find a colored matched one to trade.
    2. Factory Scoop is Very Expensive
    3. This VIS Carbon Fiber Hood has a Real Vent unlike the OEM one.
    4. Much lighter than Factory
    5. I feel it makes my truck stand out a lot more that other Tacos.



    Purchased 8/5/07 and this is how she sits today.

    OK, this is the second time I have seen the term 'debadged emblems'. Apparently, I don't understand what that is. Any explanations?

    Oh, yeah, and that is a bad ass truck.

    Wheels are nice? Are they the offroad version? or just the normal Countersteers? Where did you get them, how much?

    Love the looks of your Taco. I is very import tuner looking. My ride previous to the Tacoma I currently own was a Honda Civic and it was red with a carbon fiber hood. I loved the looks of the red contrasting with the black hood. Yours in the first carbon hood I've seen on a Taco. I wonder if I can convince my wife it's a good mod for my ride next :D. I really like the headlights/fog light combo and the colors they put out. Good job!

    Far be it from me to tell folks how to mod their vehicles (especially one as killer as yours!), but have you considered a set of projector headlights? I was just turned onto them yesterday and placed an order today. :D

    You've already got the blackout headlight mod going, but figured I'd throw this out there. :cool:

    For reference, someone else's race truck with a carbon fiber hood and the black projector lights:

    Where did you find the Nokya lights? I've been looking for some headlight and fog light bulbs that do a good job at lighting and also provide something different looking in color. I run the Silverstar bulbs now and they are pretty good, but I'm always looking for something different than anyone else in my area is running. I went to the Nokya website but they don't sell and don't list any dealers without calling them.
