    First off, thanks to everyone on here for the tips and help. This is a work in progress and I still have a long way to go to finish it but here is what I got so far. Tell me what you think.

    Just added the Bushwhackers to help out with throwing debris down the side and messing up the paint.

    Devil horn for now but I'm going to do an upper and lower Satoshi after I install the super charger in Dec.

    I cleaned off the "LEER" logo off the back. I think it looks a lot cleaner now. I'm also thinking about debadging the back except for the "tacoma" since it's silver and want a little contrast then solid black.

    This is a poor pic of my W/O the TRD is in red not pink

    I don't know why anyone wouldn't want hood struts, they make working on these things so much easier.

    A closer look at my custom CAI. I'll redo the TRD logo on my CAI box again but it'll work for now.

    The paint on my engine cover is Krylon for plastic Black textured shimmer. I put it on first for texture then the metalic silver on the logos and the charcoal stripe last. The screws that hold it on were painted with OEM touch up paint. The Krylon black looks close to the sand pearl in the sunlight and you can see some of the flake in this pic.

    Thanks for looking at my pics.

    I forgot to add that I've only had the truck since the end of Feb so the big mods are to come. I'm getting the Doug Thorley long tubes URD y pipe and O2 sim next month and then will be saving my pennies for the supercharger around Dec. That'll be my christmas present.

    I got them of ebay for $400 and then had them painted before I installed them. There easy to install. I also have the OEM flares and mudflaps if anyone wants them.

    Also about the bushwhackers, make sure you have an orbital polisher when you change out the flares so you can polish the line where the old flares were. You can do it by hand but I like to compound then use med and then light polish then seal with a good wax.

    Thanks, I had to debadge the bigass "LEER" of the back of the cap but it turned out well and I've actually grown fond of the leer badges on the sides. I'm thinking of debadging the tail gait except for the "Tacoma" but not sure how that would look.

    Ancient Chinese secret

    Actually there is a guy on the xrunner site that builds them. Don't tell because we don't want everyone running around with one.
