    The front bumper on these 5 lugs is just so goddamn huge. Fits the bigger trucks well, like 75% of the reason I took mine off.

    what do you use to keep your pumpers and all other black trim, like the mirror attachment points, nice and black looking?

    To be honest, I haven't used anything :eek: I just take my truck through the wash once in while. I guess I've just been lucky to how well mine has held up. My mirrors are actually much more faded in person up close, but you can't really notice from afar.

    you've been lucky! lol down here in South Florida it gets so hot, it fades them quick, last time i got them looking nice it took maybe a week for them to get back to the faded look, so I'm really looking for something that will work for at least a month

    Dude...you don't even know HOT until you've been through a whole to vegas summer. It's like 110+ mid summer. If anything I'd just paint them flat black IMO. That way its permanently dark

    oh damn! didn't notice you were from vegas, sorry about that lol... at least its somewhat dry over there... back when i played football, the summer 2-a-days would be killer because the air would be so saturated...like 95% humidity and 95 degrees, you could barely breathe when doing suicide drills... but i might try plasti dipping it, just have to figure out how not to have that stuff texture up, cuz i plasti dipped my grill surround and the top ended up with a textured look, i don't know why.

    I did a little landscaping today with my oldest son and we had a load of just under a half ton of rocks and landscaping stones in the bed plus 470lbs via my son and me and the Taco ran like a champ! I'm really liking the spring helpers I put on, the suspension dipped very little and there is no leaning in turns! I'm loving this truck more all the time...my fuel sipping beast! ;)

    Yeah, dehydration is common here. I can't do humidity though :(
    with the plasti-dip you have to do really even coats otherwise it will get bumpy and build up more in certain areas. do like 4 coats (all fairly light) and wait about 20 min between coats

    1" rear drop. Currently sits 34.5" in the front and 35.0" in the rear.
    Wow, she doesn't look that low. Are those pics "before"?

    Since the 5-lug double cab models use 4WD fenders, are the "black boxes" still there to interfere with larger tires?

    Plenty of room for bigger wheels/tires. Don't see any "black boxes."

    Yeah, at first I had to count the lugs and then I was gonna ask where you got them fender flares - lol. Too bad I can't get some for my regular cab.

    Very nice, what size tires will you be going with if you upgrade?
    Also are you gonna do BHLM? IMO they look incredibly sick on the 2012's

    In that case you should be able to go to a 32" 265/75-16 without trimming. Pick a lightweight wheel and tire to minimize power loss.
