    I have these (for a 2000 or course)and I love mine. Think it looks perfect with my black and silver theme.

    That was my guess. Super clean and exactly what I had in mind for mine. Any regrets of not going 55w?

    Not at all, 55w tends to burn bulbs faster, and honestly these compared to stock you wont need 55w only thing I would change would be the bulbs, either 5k if I was sticking with morimotos or the Phillips for the extra $30

    Took the truck to the dealership here in Greenville for an alignment today. Smartass tech said O look another lifted Prerunner.... I said squat down and tell me how my cv axles looked ;) he proceeded to tell me he wasnt dumb I just smiled and waited for him to find out haha.

    Good experience with greenville toyota so far, all of my alignment bolts were seized up so they spent an extra 20 minutes heating them up.

    Man I gotta say, I'm a little jealous!! I want to convert my Pre sooooo bad!! Honestly though, I don't have the knowledge base to do it on my own. I'd need some help.

    Your rig is gorgeous though! Great job!

    Build looks great!
    If you don't mind me asking, how much did you spend on all the parts to make it a 4x4?
    And where did you get the parts? Junkyard?

    I dig the grill & front bumper. Did you paint or plastidip that? Its so hard to figure out what to do with the 98-00 front bumper.

    Ive done a mixture of both throughout the years lol, first time i just sprayed it with plastidip... no prep or anything then touched it up with whatever I had. Recently actually sanded it down and primered it and used some duplicolor bed coating
