Headlight grills work great and give it a mean look.

Another cheap mod was these wiper arm helper springs from Canadian Tire, they increase the pressure on the window. they worked great keeping the mud off the window just a few shots on window washer and a few passes from the wipers and even the big chucks of mud got removed with little mess.

Over all it was fun and she works better than i could hope:party0010:I've been looking and i think i can fit 35s:confused0006: maybe a 35x10.50 ssr[36]

So was on the way home today and the truck started shaking like crazy:dontknow: . so I get out and look and the bolts at the transfercase holding the DS on are loose!:eek: 2 were still holding ish and 1 list really loose and the other was gone. limped it home and fixed it but it seems the guy that I got it off didn't use the stock nut and lock washer when he had the shaft out:mad0217: ordered 16 new bolts/nuts/washers from Toyota so this never happens again[16]

And just cause:D
