    Picked up a used TRD Pro Fox suspension from a local guy. Price was too good to pass up.

    It has 10k miles, so I was able to score it for an even $1k.

    I want to add I appreciate your wanting to stay semi-Toyota with the mods.

    If I had a chance to have a third gen and do a TRD Pro suspension for that price I would have jumped on that too.

    I don’t need a 3” lift and such.

    I really wish Toyota would have done the FJ-esqe all weather flooring like they did in 2014-15.

    And yes why do they not come with door sill protection I have no clue. That was one of the first mods on my current AC.

    Thank you for that!

    Thus far the wheels are the only non-toyota part on the truck. If you're interested in a set, let me know. Very affordable.
    I'm still on the fence about the Raptor-style lights. Is it too bro?? Also, I'm not 100% confident that it looks right without a scooped hood... I'll probably hold off until I can do both installs together.

    Skewpd hoods look great but it’s not a deal breaker IMHO.

    I’d run it and if you find someone who wants to swap Go For It.

    As a long time Vdubber I can understand the wheel love, and the set you built for your truck are very much my style. Definitely following :thumbsup:

    Thank you! I'm also a previous and current owner of various VW's and Audi's!
    Wheel knowledge is a bit more understood and accepted in the tuner community, and I'm finding that breaking into the truck scene is proving challenging! Send me a PM! We'll talk wheels :D

    I like the wheels, but need to be either all chrome or all painted.

    I'm not personally a fan of all chrome wheels on trucks. Either way these lips are polished + cleared, not chrome.
    And rarely on a true multi-piece wheel do people paint the lips the exact same colour as the faces. Unless you're talking about some small diameter SSR Mk2's or something with a very light metallic fleck. Or a matte face and gloss lip.

    If that's your style though, let's get you some! :thumbsup:
