Well it’s a start ?‍♀️

Bought my 2018 SR5 auto taco in September 2018 with 27miles

First day I found some in channel AVS window visors, a must have if you do not already.


I bought with intentions of building it the way I want. ARB air locker (s), tires, wheels, bumpers, skid plates, sliders, etc.

So far it has and I don’t consider these mods just personal items:

Black Tacoma emblem for tailgate
Red Tacoma decals for glove box
AVS window visors
A/c drain re-route
24” light bar behind grille, with factory look switch in dash
Trifold bed cover
Roof rack
Faux pro grille
Toyota branded exhaust tip (lol)
Bed lighting
Led interior lights
Toyota door sill protectors
Toyota weather floor mats


I got hit on December 1st by a driver not paying attention. Messed up the passenger bedside, broke bumper, bent exhaust and messed up the flare.

A week at the body shop all is good. Bumper was backordered so I bought a new one and I’m quite happy with it!

Rear bumper: Body Armor Pro Series
Has little things like D ring spots and cutouts for pod lights.

Just got the truck back from shop (bodyshop that fixed the truck said they would throw this one on for free, so why not)

Installing the pods this weekend and putting those d rings on.

I plan on getting tires and Bilsteins here in a little while.

The body shop had no problem with it. The oem one with all the parts was around $800. This one is $525. Easy decision for me. I like it already. Seems well built, cutouts and d ring spots were what I was looking for.

Thanks man! It’s the first actual mod I’ve done to protect the truck. Pretty happy with it. Working on tires and a lift now so it’ll make it look more tough ? lol

I was just telling my wife today, "yeah I think I'm going to buy an x, maybe give me a new y (hobby) to do." She just looked at me and said "you've got enough hobbies."

Holy cow! 15k it must have been crazy damage. That sucks even worse. The bumper was already on the list to get, so it just came sooner than expected lol. Thanks man!

Drove a few hours to pick up some tires for the truck. Gonna drop it off to my bro in law to have the tpms switched and double check balance and what not tomorrow. Should have them on the truck in a day or so!
