    That's just the Taco lean brah, totally normal lol.

    Hopefully you'll make out good with the insurance claim. I hit a cement divider in January and ended up with free Icon extended travels all the way around, free Icon UCA's, free new wheels, free upgraded wheel bearings & hub assemblies up front, and $1,200 in my pocket .

    When I say free, of course I've been paying insurance for 21 years, but it sure worked out great for what happened. I asked about all my options and decided to spend the $ on new or upgraded parts instead of body repairs. The body work/paint payout was crazy expensive for how noticeable the damage is (not bad at all). Especially for a 2005 with a lot of off road trail rash already.

    Rooting for you bud!

    Same here. I've removed every badge/emblem (along with huge TRD stickers in this case) from all my vehicles within a day or 2, only exception being my 1968 Firebird. IMO just looks much cleaner without all that busy-ness.

    For some reason I find it funny when people advertise the stealership when they leave the license plate boarders on. No offense anyone lol.

    Just received and mounted a front license plate bracket that user ACEkraut was awesome enough to provide. I'm digging the look of the low mount and super thankful that I don't have to drill holes into my bumper. :cool:

    Eventually I am sure I will. These 2nd gen bumpers look made for them. I've owned the truck for just over a year and I am only now getting my feet wet with adding on to it. Threads like this one are getting me motivated.

    I have not taken the Taco Tag off, but I pealed the dealership sticker off the first weekend. Plan to chuck the license plate border once my real plate shows up in the mail. It is serving a free purpose of not letting my paper plate blow all over the place. hahaha

    Just passed the one year mark of owning the truck and decided to give it a proper wash, clay, and wax. Had my daughter help with the wheels, tires, mudflaps, and sidesteps.

    Maybe its already been said before or peaps already know, but...
    Sylvania's 194/168/2825 cool white led bulbs work fantastic for side marker lights in 05-11 2nd gens, don't know about the 12-15's though. It's not illegal here to use white marker lights instead of the stock yellow halogens so why not.
    Also, Autozone doesn't carry them cause they're stupid lol
    Get em at O Reilly.
    I'll get a photo soon with my new headlights.
