    These are just a couple of mods that I've done over the past couple months to keep me busy. Enjoy.

    Color matched tailgate handle with new tinted taillights.

    I swapped out my Flowmaster 50 for the Flowmaster super 44 and dumped the exhaust over the rear axle to give it a nice clean look. Also took the chrome tip from before and painted it flat black then added it to the exhaust exit.

    Got tired of the fog lights not matching the BHLM, so I went ahead and "sleeved" the fog light housing with Plasti-dip. Here's a link to my How-to thread: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/104265-sleeved-fog-light-housing-how.html

    Lastly, I added the X-Runner front valance cover. I think it gives it a real aggressive look.

    Your truck looks awesome man. I love the color match tailgate handle and the black around the fog lights. How did you color match the tailgate handle and paint around the fogs? I would like to copy you if you don't mind.

    Thanks guys!

    The tailgate handle was done by a paint shop. However I did the fog lights myself. There is a write-up for it in this thread: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/x-runners/51448-fog-light-area-mod.html
    But I just followed the contours on the inside of the fog light housing instead of taking it all the way to the edge.

    Yeah it's been awhile, your truck looks awesome! And go for it, it would look really good on your truck. I'm actually thinking about getting the "lazy" eyelids next.

    I haven't been actively posting lately cause I've been busy, but I have kept an eye out on your truck and it's great progress. I wanted to take it to the edge but I was worried because of the crease in the front bumper, I thought it may look wierd. Next on the mod list is eyelids and getting rid of the Revtek spacers.

    Your headlights look amazing. I need to work up the courage to do this. How long did it take you? Would you be willing to help a fellow AZ'er out?

    I'll answer this since I think T-rev is offline. The valance is the part under your lower grill. Look at where T-rev painted his black. That is the valance. I believe the Tundras come stock like that.:rolleyes: But it just makes it stand out more and gives it a bit more of an aggressive look.:) The stuff we used to paint out fogs was Plasti-dip. Black in color of course. It comes in a spray can and you can pick it up at your local hardware store I believe. Now for my hood scoop I used something different. I used rubberized undercoating and then some Krylon fusion black spray paint on top of that to match my skidplate and Avid bar.

    The headlights took a few hours, it's really easy to do though. But yeah no problem I can definitely help out if you would like, just PM me whenever.

    I'll make a how-to thread for this as soon as possible.

    Thanks for all the comments! I added a link to a how-to thread for the fog lights for those of you that were interested in the mod, it's in my original post.
