    Now that the snow is almost here, all of the things I've wanted to get done to my truck need to get done now. So last week I finally stepped up and did the BHLM. I hadn't seen it on too many IR's but it looks great IMO. It does raise some questions about the grill surround, I think I'm going to paint it base model gray. The pics are muddy, but she looks best when she's dirty.

    I also picked up some 265/75/16 BFG AT's and finally removed the mud flaps. I think it looks so much better without them!

    Nice truck you got there Adam.
    What's funny to me though, is that now that winter is coming I can start doing things. It's finally getting a little cooler in AZ. :)

    Nice! Is that burgandy? If yes...that's gotta be a rare color because I've rarely seen a 2nd gen in that color. I've always liked that color!

    But yeah - I wanna do a complete go-over on my truck before the weather gets shitty. My warrantee runs out in March :( I hate the cold weather!

    Looks nice! Instead of base model gray, which is nowhere else on your ride - why dont you paint match it? I found a local place here that mixes paint and they will put it in rattle cans even, cheaper than ebay. I'm sure you could find one there too, or pay a body shop to do it.

    Awesome. Love the black rims on IR. I have the same exact truck, and was wondering about that color combo. Definitely going to black the grill as well.

    Thanks for the comments guys!
    Yeah that's what I have been in the fence about. I do have the gray on my truck, badges, skid plate and Thule box in winter, so it might match nicely. I'm really not a fan of the looks of the TRD Sport (except for the scoop) so I'm not wicked crazy about the color matched grill surround. It looks good on some trucks, but don't really think its right for mine.
