    4 inch lift. Chrome grill package, 17" Chrome Plated Rims, 32 " Mickey Thompson Wheels, Westin Signature Chrome Side Step Bars, AEM Brute Force Cool Air Intake, Helix Power Tower Throttle Body Spacer, UGA Bulldog front floormats, Toyota Front Aluminum Skid Plate, Toyota Logo Bed Mat.
    I put an AEM brute force CAI in and then put in a Helix Power Tower TBS in and um wow, tight squeeze. Just some info for anyone who is going the same route

    Found a reason to get rid of it... Does it add HP, no... But never really felt it impeaded performance. Just needed a good reason to uninstall, and not cutting my expensive TCAI, was a damn good reason:cool:
