    Here's some one year anniversary pics. As you can tell, I kept it pretty much bone stock. I bought it brand new in April 18, put over 20k miles on it and have loved it since.

    Front 2885 springs / 5100s / 1/4" spacers (both sides) /Stock UCAs - about 2.5" lift
    Rear 1.25" blocks
    16x8 XD Turbine wheels (0 offset), custom flush center caps with TRD logos
    No rubbing issues at all, some very slight rubbing on fender liner
    285/75R16 Cooper Discoverer ATR XLT
    Tinted up front, 35%
    Morimoto LED fogs
    Black Headlight Mod (BHLM), done by me, all black housings
    MESO Customs painted headlight panels
    DDM 35W 4500k HID kit
    Pro grille/tails
    Debadged side/tailgate emblems
    Bumpershellz TPO bumper covers
    Black dual wall exhaust tip (welded)

    I did catch up on that 40% off TRD sale for the skid. From this point on, it will be a full speaker upgrade with sub and eventually LED tail upgrade (Meso Customs). I might go to a gunmetal wheel, I'm on the fence on the all black, but I do really like these wheels.

    What exhaust tip did you get? Also what do you think of your 35% tint?

    35% is fine I think. It's a good mix of privacy/UV blocking. I would say that I still roll the windows down at night in reverse though (in concert with the backup camera).

    The tip is a matte double wall slanted. I'm not sure it's anything special. The shop put it on.

    Thanks guys. I've been making small tweaks; this is the truck now. I decided the pro grill wasn't for me so I'm back to the OR grille and bouncing between chrome and black surrounds; both look good. I went back to chrome emblems with the grey vinyl inlays; the doors looked too naked to me after pulling the emblems off. I am REALLY on the fence about the black bumper caps. I took them off as you see here but I kind of miss them.

    I'm a perfectionist so I do kind of go back and fourth and try different things.
