    Day 1 happy new Taco owner!

    First official "mod"

    [​IMG]

    Then came the plasti derp and also removed factory side steps

    Started removing the as much "chrome bling" as I could added a satoshi grill from Jim (river rat 69) also added the laminx yellow covers to the foglights

    Got lucky and found a guy on craigs that swapped me wheels for nothing just a straight up trade


    [​IMG]

    Got in on a group buy for retrofit headlights and with some help from guys on here was able to get it done. By far my favorite thing I've done to any of my vehicles.

    I wanna say I paid between 250-300 for the grill color matched and satoshi + shipped to me. PM river rat 69 (Jim) he does great work.

    Thanks bud, the best mod I can say I've ever done to a vehicle :cool:

    I don't think so... my skyjackers did that on my 4Runner.... so I ziptied the rubber boot to the shock body.... never had that problem again. Try finding a Ziptie that is the same color as the boot.... so it's not as noticeable. :)
