    Hey guys, well I'm kinda stumped. I haven't modded the Taco much lately...any ideas on what to do next? Here is the most recent picture I have of how it sits today...I have a center console organizer and (4) 1.25" spidertrax wheel spacers on the way..hope the wheel spacers will make it look even beefier!

    How she sits now

    I have a TRD badge on the tailgate, and I kept the badges cuz I like how they tie in w/ the chrome on the rims...it's the only chrome on the truck and it's subtle!

    I have hella 500's mounted behind the grill...hard to tell in that pic lol...and it's a 2010 so it's already kinda of got the smoked headlight look which is enough for me! I'm a little skeptical on doing the BHLM...

    and yes I'd love to off road but I don't have much time and there isn't really anywhere near me to go that I know of...I'm only played around in the mud 3-4 times..can't find any nice open areas :( I need to try these Hankook Dynapro's out in some mud!!

    Edit: Thanks for the ideas/feedback so far!

    Ops, totally missed the Hella's behind the grill. I have a 2010 with the smoked headlights so i know how you feel by not wanting to do a BHLM.

    I like your truck, looks good! Plastidip the emblems and the lower valence or take it to a vinyl shop and let them do your roof in black!

    Please don't plasti-dip your emblems. Do it right :)

    The lower valence is a great look IMO. I will admit to plasti-dippin that part.... but only because I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep it. Plasti-dip doesn't hold up over time, and thats why I will never use it again.

    Also, I really like the look of a set of the non-agressive eyelids that match the grill lines. I have them on mine. Good cheap mod ideas for ya.

    Heres another thing you can do :)

    Yeah I agree PD is good for determining if you like the black look or not...I wouldn't use it for my lower valence, I feel like it'd get chewed up so quick...What lights are those for you bed lights? where did you run the wires? I've always loved your truck Brian! I'll check out the non aggressive eyelids

    Here's my writeup for the lights. Don't use that switch though. It jammed up after only a few days. I have a replacement, just haven't installed
