    FJ Trail Edition replicas with some 265/75 Hankooks. Also got the side steps, yellow fog bulbs, and plastidipped the front emblem.

    Really pleased with the truck overall...except I lost a center cap already.

    What do you guys think?

    Looking Good! Man that is awesome country. You are a lucky man to be able to drive your Tacoma in that everyday. It is pretty boring land in South Texas and then 99.9% of it is privately owned.

    Beautiful truck man. the blacken out grill emblem really set it off nicely. Even the replica FJ rims looks sharp. BTW how do you like the Hankooks? thoughts?

    No issues balancing the wheels.

    They are sliver FJ wheels that we powder coated.

    Shuttle pad is pretty good...bikes still shift on dirt roads if not tied down but overall pleased with it.

    Hankooks are nice. I got the 6 ply and am very pleased.

    Gas mileage has gone down over stock but that was to be expected...

    Yeah I looked at both. Decided on this one as it seems to have more padding than the DaKine one does.
