    Making payments for now - here is the picture of the fogs, not much to see i know but feels good to have my first mod done. I had them installed earlier but working has been in the way of posting pics. Love DT !

    Looks good Devon. That’s just the beginning of many more mods you’ll end up doing. It’s never ending!

    I'm just wondering what all the TRD hype is about... As an SR owner would it be considered I don't know how to phrase this... But to turn an SR into a TRD?? Would that be stupid? Has anyone else done this?

    Thoughts and comments appreciated.

    With the third gen you’d have to add Hitachi shocks and a non functional hood scoop for a TRD Sport.
    For an OffRoad you’d need Bilstiens, crawl control, more skid plates, traction select, etc.
    Or you can get black fender flares, TRD stickers, and a TRD grille and call it a day.

    For off road purposes?

    If you had gears/ lockers, a good suspension setup, aftermarket skids, cab mount chop and a 32.7x11.2 tire... you can go places that stock crawl controlled TuRDs could never reach.

    Yeah , I was curious about a lift, new tires and the aftermarket skid plates.
    Thanks, probably pass on the TRD stickers after all that is said and done. Ah , dreams....

    With your set up, i would be careful about skids (weight) that you dont need if you are not wheeling. If anything, i would consider sliders and not steps. As for the rest i cannot speak to a lift on 4 cylinder nice looking truck! Bed mat would be another mod to consider, it does wonders

    That it does. The bed mat is a must.

    Sliders function as dual purpose, one they are true protection to your cab from the bottom and the side and they also function as steps. They come in at an angle or u CD an opt to ones that are parallel to the ground. I had steps before which i sold and replaced with sliders. Steps wont give you protection rather if you get hit there, they will cause more damage rather than protect your cab IMG_20180424_175917_618.jpeg 20181202_160134.jpeg
