Tinted tails/brake/side markers-painted emblems & Nittos...

Well, I've had the truck for less then a day and a half and the mods have started.

First I spray tinted the side marker, tail and brake lights. I own a shop, so I used black mixed in the clear and added coats until I was happy with the effect. I don't like tails too dark, so these are right right to me.






I also removed and disassembled the fender emblems to color match the black texture area.
This is a very simple mod and really looks great.





Also added Nitto 325/60/20 Terra Grapplers. I have a Ready Lift Stage 3 coming, but I couldn't wait. Hey, no rubbing unless full/hard crank in a turning circle.





Headlights will ne next and I'm still deciding on what to do with the grille. I see some have done the KR style color matched and some have done just the center bars, but I'm still on the fence here. I'll post up for sure if I do anything.

BTW, I love the truck I sold a 06 King Ranch w/ 93k to get it and am sure glad I did!!

Thanks
Jay

Looks good! Kind of nice the badges come apart easy enough. I bet a lot of folks will do the color match thing.

I have not checked to see what it's hitting, but it's minor.

Thanks
