Thanks! The Grille is a 300 Industries Grille out of Vegas that I bought off of Realtruck.com. I should have my KB Voodoo Max Modular 10" Bed Rack in towards the end of the month and the RTT is already on the way.

Yes, I installed the bumper and grille. The only issue I ran into was I installed the bumper first and it got in the way of the grille install. Stock bumper would have been an hour job for installation (not wiring, but installing). I am still installing lights in the outer holes of the bumper, so I am still in the wiring process.

Got my new rack installed this weekend. I went with the RCI rack for the RTT/equipment mounting with some KB Voodoo bars under it for my surfboards.​

Welcome! I had a 300 industries grill for a bit as well. Nice looking truck (y)
Yeah, so far I like the grille, but it was somewhat of a pain to install (just not very good directions with the kit). Other than that I don't have any complaints with it.

Oh yeah it took me a while when I installed it too, compared to the pro grill I have now that took about ten minutes and had no bolts which was nice.

Sweet build! I’ve been thinking about getting those bed bars for some additional storage. How do you like them?

RCI Bed Rack is looking good!
Yeah, it turned out good, but RCI needs to fix their parts packet. It was missing the required 3/8 lock nuts to assemble. It did not bother me since I had already purchased all stainless bolts, washers, and nuts. However, I could see it being a bad day for someone that was not expecting it and I have read that this is a normal item left out. I love the rack so far though. Now I just have to get my RTT mounted on it and my surf racks on the underside KB Voodoo bars to be set for the summer. Side Note: Truck Brigade was very helpful and made this purchase real easy. With the free shipping offer I got it cheaper than I could anywhere else. You all also had some of the quickest shipping I have ever seen. Thanks again.

Well, I just had the TS-B-0062-18 Flash done on the transmission and I have to say I amazed at the difference so far. It has more acceleration on takeoff and when you punch from the 30-40 mph range. So far there seems to be less transmission gear seeking when traveling at higher speeds with a light throttle. I highly recommend any one with a 3G Tacoma with automatic transmission to get it done.

The TSB is a solid improvement for sure. I still ended up going with OVTune, but it was definitely way better after the TSB.

I know I'm late here, but welcome to T3G! That all black Pro with that front bumper and bed setup is pure sexy. You've got a total party in the back with the surfboards under the tent!

Thanks. It is a work in progress, but it will definitely be a party that can lasts for days when I am done. Hope to put a shower to rinse down with and bike rack for my bike. Once weighted down I am going to start the lift and tires part of the build, but I think I will have to wait until next winter for that part of the build. Since I am doing all of the install work myself it come together a little slower than I would like, but I will get there.

Nothing wrong with slow builds. I think they are more rewarding than doing it all at once.
