    My build will likely take a while, as I don't really know much about building trucks up... But hey, that's why I joined here!

    I've got a 2012 TRD Sport "Limited" w/ Entune and I've got A LOT of ideas thanks to everyone's build threads.

    Current mods:
    Ohio State Buckeye sticker in the rear window ... :cool:
    Removed OEM mud guards
    Added OEM skid plate, roof rack
    AntennaX euro antenna
    Plasti Dipped all emblems
    Toyec spacer lift (I know.. BUT I don't really off road, I really like the look!)

    Future mods:
    Weathertech digitalfit mats
    Weathertech wind/rain deflectors
    BLHM mod (thinking about morimotos)
    Wetokole's for the front and rear
    SCS Stealth 6 Wheels in Bronze
    Goodyear Duratracs

    I'll be posting on my thread pretty much everyday that I can, any feedback is greatly appreciated and I welcome any criticism.

    More pictures will follow

    Your lift wheels and tires really depend on what you want to do with your truck. Is it a lift just for show? for light off roading? for serious off roading? And do the weathertechs sooner rather than later, they are awesome and I love mine:thumbsup:

    I'd like to start getting into some light off roading, but also kind of show. The weathertechs are definitely a top priority right now, I've heard great things!

    +1 on weathertechs.
    For lift, I would recommend OME, because that's what I have and am happy with it. But you could probably get away with billies turned up a little. Wheels and tires are completely and entirely up to your personal preference, after all, its your truck, you're the one looking and driving it everyday.
    Enjoy the modding.

    I agree with the OEM for light off roading, they can even handle some pretty nice trails as evidenced by other builds on here. and yes wheels and tires are your choice. Maybe an AT tire instead of an MT unless you like the aggressive look of a MT

    Cool, I will probably give that a try, so OEM it is!
