    Moved The horns down and painted the a/c condenser black to make the grill look better.

    Added: C/F look dash kit, came out pretty well, I decided to get it as the silver on my dash was getting worn away ( my truck was bought used )

    Next Mods:

    -Picked up the tailgate reinforcement plate, need to rhino line and install.
    -Finish installing C/F Dash Kit

    The fogs look awesome. I can't wait to get mine on too. Your whole rig looks great, btw! My next big mod is going to the grill like yours and putting lights behind for the fog, rain, snow, annoying drivers, etc. Do you have a write up for your install or did you follow one on here? I am wondering how good I have to be filling in the holes left by cutting out the inner part.

    Product Reviews:

    Here I will try to give my experiences and feedback about the products on my truck.

    ARMOR:
    -B.A.M.F. Rear Diff Skid: Great bolt-on Diff protection, has taken hard abuse from rocks and held up flawlessly.

    -B.A.M.F. Sliders w/Kick Out: These have saved my truck numberous times from damage. Being a DCLB the length plays a huge roll in my lines when off roading. Having the kick-outs help push the truck over when the sides don't clear. Mine has been welded on, so it also helps brace the frame.

    -B.A.M.F. LCA Skid Plates: Simple bolt-on skids for my LCA's, they also have been tested a lot. Many times I have slide over rocks that would have otherwise got caught on my factory LCA. They also cover the alignment tabs which some other LCA's do not. Although you do need remove them whenever you're doing an alignment.

    -Demello Off Road Plate Bumper 3 Hoop: Got this bumper during the group buy on here, I get many compliments about it everywhere. It mounts using the factory 14mm bolts ( x 6 ) However it does not seem strong enough as when I was winching up a hill the bumper was flexing forward. I ended up having BAMF make a brace that went over the side mounts and bolted to the frame. Also note that to remove your headlights you will have to pretty much remove the bumper from the truck to clear the hoops. But it is it stout and has held up to numerous hits/scrapes/etc.

    -ATO Front IFS Skid: This front skid bolted right up and has also taken numerous hits and scrapes. Weighing in at over 50lbs it isn't light but it's solid. Mounts to the 4 17mm bolts the OEM skid plate brackets use and 2 12mm bolts in the rear.

    -BruteForce HC Rear Bumper w/Tire Carrier and CB Antenna Mount and Gas Can Carrier ( Modified for RotoPax ) This is a HIGH clearance bumper, requires cutting nearly 12" off the side of the bed. With my long wheel base the extra clearance in the rear has helped greatly. I opted for the swingarm with spare tire carrier as well as a mount for my rotopax gas cans and a CB antenna. Comes with a receiver built in and uses OEM license plate lights and trailer plug. Bolts up to the OEM hitch mounts and bumper mounts.

    -Relentless Transmission & Xfer Case Skids: My set was for people with re-routed exhausts to aid in ground clearance, however I ended up needing to cut a section in the rear to clear the exhaust piping. It all depends on how your y-pipe is ran. Mine goes behind the xfer case and required the skid to be cut to allow the pipe through. After Deer valley I ended up denting the Xfer skid and it starting rattling against the exhaust. I've cut a bit more off to allow more room for the exhaust to move around.

    -Budbuilt Gas Tank Skid + Budbuilt Gas tank strap: Got the skid on Craigslist and ordered the gas tank strap from Budbuilt directly. The Strap was about $100 shipped! They only require you to use one in the rear instead of 2. ( Since I have a TRD sport there's no OEM gas tank skid. ) The bolts do stick out and have been getting caught on things but there's not a whole lot you can do about it.

    SUSPENSION:
    -King Racing Front Coil Overs with Remote Resi's & 700# Springs: WIth all the added weight of the armor new suspension was a must. Going with the 700# springs is also a must when having so much armor. The ride is smooth and fairly plush. Keep in mind I'm not running the sway. The only issue I've had is the travel isn't really that great and adjustments are a PITA. Currently my lower shock mounts are making all kinds of creaking sounds. I lube them to help keep the noise down.

    -King Racing 12" 2.0 Rear Shocks w/ Remote Resi's: These are off the shelf shocks, 2.0 body with resi's valved by DSM. The ride is smooth and the travel is great, using the BAMF shock mounts.

    -Bay Area Metal Fab ( B.A.M.F. ) Mid Travel Shock Mounts: Great solution for those who want a 12" shock witout giving up any bed space. Requires removal of all OEM shock mounts upper & lower. Pretty much figure out where you want your shock and weld it on. Has freed up travel in the rear to go with the leafpacks.

    -Total Chaos Uniball UCA: First off the finish is great and has held up to all kinds of stuff from rocks to mudd to anything else mother nature has in Nor/Socal. The only downside is the exposed uniballs that can make noise if they become dirty. But the Uniballs themselves allow for more droop as they do not bind as soon as traditional ball joints

    -Total Chaos Shocks Tower Gussets: This is usually a requirement for LT trucks, but I figured I should do it as it's not that expensive for the part. Welding it on was quite hard and is hard to paint after the fact. Getting the long UCA bolt was hard to get back in as well with the gussets as they extended the hole where the bolts go in.

    -Total Chaos U-Bolt Strike Plate ( For Air Bumps ): Sleek low profile strike plate that replaces the U bolt plates. The recessed design allow the nuts for the U-bolts to sit below the top of the leaf packs. So now the air bumps can strike without getting caught. However they do NOT include shorter U-bolts. I had to cut down the All Pro ones I used from their flip kit.

    -All Pro U-Bolt Flip Kit: Simple U-bolt flip kit, the nuts included use a nylock lock so they are hard to thread down and will feel tight.

    -All Pro Expedition Leaf Pack Easy bolt-in replacement leaf pack for Tacomas. Made to maintain 3" of lift with 500lbs in the bed. Gives about 4" Lift with no weight. Once loaded up rides like butter. Bit harsh at times when empty but worth the trade off. Has a good amount of travel, currently with my 12" King Shocks & BAMF mounts, the leaf packs are the limiting factor.

    -All Pro Spindle Gussets Fairly simple weld on gusset for the spindles, does require a bit of work to get it done, and clearance is really tight between the tire/wheel, but got it as a piece of mind.

    -Wheelers Super Bump-stops [Front] Another easy mod, simply unscrew the OEM bump stops and screw these in. Much softer when maxing out the front end.

    -Defined Engineering Shackle Brace Another bolt-in mod, goes inbetween the rear leaf spring mounts to prevent them from bending inward. Simply remove the bolt and mount this up. ( Does require 2 12mm bolts to be drilled and mounted in the center )

    -Fox 2.0 Air Bumps Shortened to 2" Travel Originally bought these in 4" configuration, but it was too close to my axle and kept hitting on small bumps. Took it apart myself and added spacers in to shorten it to 2" travel. Soaks up the bumps well whenever I hit the rear hard.

    -Poly-Performance Air Bump Mounts Weld on mount for air bumps. Simple. Works.

    RECOVERY:

    -SmittyBilt XRC-8 8000k COMP Winch(Synthetic Rope & Aluminum Fairlead) I relocated my solenoid to the engine bay, and did in-cab controls. Only issue I had was when the ground bolt backed out a bit. But overall has worked many times over and continues to do so.

    -SmittyBilt Recovery Kit w/ Snatch Block, Tree Saver, Chain
    -SmittyBilt Recovery Strap 2 x 20ft
    -SmittyBilt Element Ramps
    I've used these a couple times, had a set break, due to defect. They seem effective, however the plastic isn't the same as other brands. They don't seem as flexible. However proper use and they'll be fine.

    -Hi-Lift Xtreme 48" Jack
    -SmittyBilt Snatch Strap
    -Smittybilt Recovery Strap
    -ARB Winch Extension Strap

    DRIVE-TRAIN:
    -ARB Rear Air Locker
    -ARB High Vol Air Compressor w/Air Line Kit
    -Royal Purple Fluids

    One of the best mods I ever did. The difference was night/day. The front locker is rarely used, and I often forget to even use it until someone mentions it. But the rear locker made things a lot easier to get through. Biggest downfall is cost, I would advise you save up and do gearing at the same time to save yourself more labor costs.

    WHEELS/TIRES:
    -Stealth Custom Series (SCS ) SR8' Wheels 17 x 8
    My second set of SCS wheels, and the quality is just amazing. The finish is amazing and I get compliments all the time. Also since they're hubcentric no issues with weird vibes.

    -Hankook Dynapro M/T's in 35's
    These were recommended to me by jberry. I got all 5 for 1200 Shipped from Discount Tire Direct on Ebay. They are a lot quieter than my ProComps, and have been doing very well off road. Sidewall is somewhat soft, as is the tire overall, so it does wear a bit quicker.

    INTERIOR:
    -Cabela's ( Weathertech ) Digital Fit Floor Liners F & R
    I got these during a sale, they fit perfect, I had to add velcro under the passenger side to keep it from sliding around, but other than that they've been good. Every so often I take them out and scrub them down with a brush and they look nearly new again. Definitely a good investment if you want to keep the inside clean.

    Thanks for the info! I will have to remember to relocate the horns. I bought the paint to spray the radiator too. I am thinking of getting the partsgeek grill to work on so I can still have the OEM one should I screw things up. LOL

    You didn't put lights behind yours did you? If so, what did you use to mount them?
