    What's up guys!

    So, I've been looking at some different upgrades to add to the Tacoma for the exterior such as: tires & rims, light bar & ditch lights, front bumpers, grilles, plus head & tail lights. These are just a few things that I'd like to add.

    If you guys have ANY pictures, advice and/or suggestions, hit me up! I'm open to anything & im ready to see what kinds of setups you guys have!

    Thanks!

    Ditch Light Brackets by @RelentlessFab or @SDHQ OFFROAD are good choices as they do not require any trimming of the plastic cowl at the windshield. @CaliRaisedLed as well. @Pelfreybilt for front Bumpers. Head and Tail Lights don't know much on them except a lot of aftermarket ones leak, so I would never bother with them myself. Tires and rims the selections are never ending.

    The Depo lights are not bad. Seal them with silicone if you get them though. For bumpers you can go with any of the host of companies you will find in the vendor section. I would change those wheels out also.

    You might want to look for a white sport grille also. That would really dress up the front of the truck. You can find them on ebay or local salvage yard.

    Are you trying to achieve specific functions to overcome things the truck has come up short on?

    Or is this a glam event?

    If your looking to make more of a statement, you could go with something like this:

    My guess its a wrap and its on a 'business vehicle' someone is using for advertizing and writing it off.

    Big cat rescue? Or maybe just a PETA freak?

    I like them because they are basically stock, with black internals. Plus for us OG Tacoma owners, the LED's are an upgrade.

    I think it's amazing. Doesn't mean it's a statement I'll ever make to the world, lol. But I mean, they got a conversation started...

    This, much like fashion, should make a statement and not ask a question! :rofl:
