Nice truck.. I have the same Prerunner package in Impulse Red coming in next week. What brand of nerf bars are those and where did you get them if you don't mind? That is going to be one of my first additions.

Thanks, I had a tough time choosing between the Indigo Ink and the Impulse Red, I like them both. Hope you enjoy yours as much as I have mine. Be sure to post some pics when you get it.
The nerf bars are UWS brand. Here's a link to their site, you can find a local dealer from there.

Thanks for the link. There is a dealer not to far, so I will check them out.
I like the Impulse Red, especially since I was able to find a pretty rare SR5 package with the alloy wheels. I think Indigo Ink is very nice, and not too common around here. I have yet to see a new Indigo Ink on the road.
With the front windows tinted to match, and the ventvisors and bug shield all blending in, the Indigo looks really good.
One more question. The Wade bug shield says no drill, but did it mount with tape or screws?

The bug shield mounts with 5 screws, the holes are pre drilled. It's just a matter of centering the shield and tightening them up.

What is percentage of the tint on your front windows that you got to match the back and access cab doors? I want to do mine too but the legal limit here is 30% and I don't want to waste my time unless it's going to match. Thanks.

The back windows on my double cab are 20%, according to the guy who tinted my front windows. I got the front windows done with 20%, which is illegal, but I'll take a chance. It looks good though. The cops around here don't mess with window tint too much.

For the tinting, I went to a local shop that does the tinting for the Toyota dealer. I told him that I wanted to match the front windows to the back if it was legal to do so. He said it was, I didn't ask what the % was. The local cops don't seem to pay a lot of attention to window tint, so just as pb2thmax said I'm willing to take my chances. Guess it depends on where you are. The law is different in different states, and some places enforce it more than others.

Here's a pic of my truck after I debadged the sides. It looks much cleaner without the Tacoma emblem on the doors and the TRD sticker on the bed. But I did add a TRD emblem on the tailgate.
And here's a pic of the Toyota Sport seat covers, in case somebody was wanting to know what they look like. I really like 'em! They are real durable, and easy to wipe off.
