    So far I've added an Advance folding bed cover and since removed it. Gave it to my son in Maine, he has an 05 2wd. GT perfect fit seat covers. Weathertech floor mats and window vent visors. Waag center brush/grill guard. Hose clamp tailgate mod. Turned off the seat belt chime. Added Ultra-Gauge. Trailer hitch. Softopper. Replaced sun visors with slide out style. Toyota bed extender. Had Firestone Destinations and now Michelin LTX AT2 in stock size. More mods to come; Fog lights, locking storage in bed, intermittent wipers. Now looking for Radio/HU upgrade. and maybe a lift way down the road.
    Very nice OP. Thanks for the progressive pics too. I was toying with a DIY grill myself.
    ;)
    I can give you a light...Bud light. You gotta come pick it up. But hurry my GF will probably throw it away to make room for some real beer.

    The grill looks great. IMO a BHLM would look awesome on your truck with the grill, and loose the bug deflector.

    No, keep it if you like it. I have one and I like the looks of it. (Although I have seen many comments here about people not liking them)

    it took me about 2 days to do but it was my first satohi grill. itll probably take me shorter if i had done it before. ran around a whole day looking for the right color paint and come to find out that autozone(or any autoparts store) carries alot of the OEM toyota colors. so if anyone wants or need anytouch pant in the small paint brush or spray can. try your local autoparts store.
    here is the cani used. it even has toyota's color caode on the tag

    All Factory for now, LOVE it that way
    with all do respect man,
    I have to say ONLY 2 things would make that grille 100% better,
    1) being dessert storm mica
    2) being on my truck
    But since the 2 things wont happen,
    very sharp man, i really like it, well done
