    I almost got MGM but then realized that color is everywhere out here. Not that silver isn't common but I see 1 silver for every 10 MGM.

    Plus the black aftermarket pieces look better on silver.

    I thought the silver was a bit darker and metallic looking before I bought it.. but after staring at it daily, it's become like every other silver out there. Originally was going for the Lexus Atomic Silver look... but nevertheless.. i still love my Taco!

    Do those wheels have the standard offset? Seems like they are sticking out more normal for those wheels.

    Keen eye, sir. In that photo there are 1.25" spidertrax wheel spacers on. I had them on the '17 Off-road stock wheels and haven't taken them off yet. I do plan to do that today. I'm starting to think they punch the wheels out a little too far for my taste.

    I love it. It really only weighs 70Lbs. If you take the actual cover off, there are still tracks to put the crossbars on, so carrying camping stuff isn't so bad.

    Rigid industries sells a fog light kit with lights and mounts and full wiring. I ended up just hooking them to my old fog light wiring so I could use the factory light selector instead of adding a switch. You just need to buy additional plug adapter or splice the wires and you're good to go. Took less than an hour.[/QUOTE]

    Did you have to take any of the front valance/bumper off to access the fog lights, or did you just go at it from the bottom?

    Thanks

    Access through the bottom and the wheel wells. If you don't want to splice the wires go on Amazon they have a plug adapter. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01E...g_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=7EWP6YC59B4KSXF20RGM

    Yes I will. I planned on cleaning them up and posting them. Bought that set in October. I know this isn't a marketplace thread but if you're interested you can message me!

    Just curious...is the driver's door just not closed all the way, or is that gap due to body flex?

    Haha! I was looking at the pic last night, too and it looks like body damage causes the door not to shut properly.

    The door wasn't closed all the way.
