    It's a work in progress. See my build thread
    TheJourney.jpg

    So, I bought my 2016 TRD Sport AC, V6, 4x4, with tow package because I bought a house in the country and needed a truck. I had zero plans to ever modify it. But then I found Tacoma World, and it seems I've started make some minor mods, so, I thought I should document them. Not sure how far this is going to go, so I'll call it a journey, and not a build.

    Here she is the day I brought her home:

    Next was a WeatherTech Bug Deflector, OEM rubber mats, and mud flaps.

    Then I decided to add some custom bling. I found @CBoy808 and got him to help me out. Here are the results:

    Then I found the Northern Virginia Role Call thread, and met some local guys that were into off-roading, and having always wanted to do that, started to do some research, and decided that I wanted to tag along on a trail run at some point. (which I am doing and is tomorrow as I type this).

    In the meantime, since I was really not digging the cheese-grater grille, and it went from chrome to dipped to a TRD pro grille:

    OriginalGrille.jpg
    Dipped_Grille.jpg
    ProGrille2.jpg

    So then in preparation for the trail run I removed the damn air dam and mud flaps (I'll put the flaps back on after the run, not so for the air dam), and installed a set of ditch lights.

    So that's where she sits now. We'll see what's next.

    Thanks. I think the pro grille adds a nice touch from the cheese grater.

    Yeah... But I like the old school look. Thinking about taking the letters off and painting them. What do you folks think?
