    The factory one that comes stock is worthless tin. Get yourself something decent and spray it. Options:

    - AllPro
    - BudBuilt (when they're available, and the first set is MINE! :D)
    - Downey
    - Toyota TRD

    There are some others too. Of course, you could always just grab a Stop sign and bend it to fit! ;)
