    After seeing this I wish I had done it instead of springing for the TRD Pro wheels. That made a huge difference

    Rear Diff breather vent relocate, align bed and bumper gaps (should be aligned from factory), add window visors, OEM Bed Mat, new Radio knobs (on the way).
    Looks great! I Derped mine and added the Red TRD resin decal and it truly changed the whole look of these wheels. I think I like your gloss finish better, but will stay with the Derp for now nice job!

    Also on your lift how’s the ride with just the front coil overs and blocks in rear?
