so i work out of town for 4-6 days at a time. so i drive my work car to the job and stay up here till my time off. needless to say, a 2000 hyundai accent with 98 hp and a burnt piston ring doesnt quite get me going like my 06 double cab does. tho it does get 37mpg compared to my 16mpg on the yota (damn 33's) anyway, ive been on here all weekend and ive gotten many ideas from different people im gonna start on come tuesday. they are...

1) take the orange blinker part off the headlights, then tint them
2) tint the tailies while im at it
3) get the flowmaster 40df single in dual out muffler put on my exhaust with tailpipes goin out the back
4) prob remove the secondary air filter since i read the forum on that from forever ago lol
5) order a new grille, the stock chrome one looks to cheap
6) damn't just remembered i gotta get my sway bar re-centered with the positioning clamps :headbang:


that'll probably be it for the week. i have 6 days to get er done. plenty of time for that. i think im more giddy to get started on my truck than i am to see my girlfriend. is that bad? mmmaybe in her eyes, but im a-okay with it. ill be sure to post pictures when im done :thumbsup:

yeah i was actually thinking about just painting that chrome around the emblem to black so the chrome emblem is all that you notice. really that emblem should say 'nuff said' under it lol

You'll probably have to paint the new grill surround, so you might as well just sand and paint the one you have now.
umm you order them color-matched, unless if you want to go through the pain-staking process of ordering an SR5 gray chrome surround and color-match it yourself, which isnt worth it since the few $$$ you save with the SR5 color wont be worth messing up a rattle-canned grille surround.

Good to know...though painting the one you have might still be cheaper...
