I don't know man. The bed looks pretty small. I don't know if you could fit both your need to compensate for something AND 500 pounds of freshly cut lumber in there. You'd probably have to take two trips...

Just kidding with you man. Cool truck. GMG is my favorite finish ever.

WTB full-length bed.

:lol:

Congrats, dude! Not the sort of thing I'd drive, but I'm interested to see what you're gonna do with it!

That's actually the only size bed that comes on the Crewmax, so I'm kinda stuck. I think Toyota is addressing this, though, as there have been quite a few complaints.

I actually didn't burn up quite as much gas as I thought. 13.9 mpg so far!

In the works:

Tint tomorrow. Running boards were supposed to be installed by dealer already when I went to get it last night. LRO 3/1 level kit with lift. Black headlight mod with HID's. Pioneer AVH-4400 head unit with Infinity 6x9s. 20x9 XD Cranks (possibly) with 305/55/20 Nitto Terra Grapplers.

I've got a buddy that owns a customs shop here, so I'm sure a few more things will follow.

I'm not getting any better than about 13.6 now, and it's definitely not going to get any better with the lift and the new tires!

Aren't Toyota trucks known for poor mileage...?

Hey Greg, it may not be 500 lbs, and it may not be freshly cut, but hot damn now Ali and Kyle and I can have a bonfire.

Windows tinted and side bars added a while back.



Did the BHLM (black headlight mod) with Oracle Halos.



Paint that satin black.



Tint out side reflector.



Black out the Halos.

Now put them together.



Here's a before shot:



And after:



Couldn't get a very good night shot.







Haven't wired the Halos yet, because I'm doing HID's next, but should look similar to this when done.



Sorry for the shitty iPhone pics (not shitty pics, shitty phone!)

Love the smoked headlight surrounds... very nice. Halos always look odd to me on anything but a BMW.

Nice looking truck! Not too familiar with Toyotas but is that a half-ton? Someday I'll retire my GMC extended cab & get a crew cab - so what I'm always looking at are the size of the rear doors/windows. I assume it has great rear seat room/leg room?
