    What’s up guys I have a 2010 Tundra, it’s the “small” V8 that’s almost a daily since I’m in it so much for work! It’s been a great vehicle for the past 3 yrs. I only replaced the battery and changed oil. Has a great sounding exhaust with 50 series Flowmaster with resonator delete and larger/longer tip. No drone! Added body bits. I’ll do a build thread from how I got it. Simple but fun.

    I’m needing tire rod ends and struts now(I have all parts but have procrastinated)... also my a/c is weak! Since it’s winter time now I’ll get it diagnosed and jut fix it in the spring.

    I have an 02’ LX470 and we have a 04’ 4Runner in the Toyota family..! Check out my thread in the series 100 forum too.

    Did you mean do LED headlights?

    I have those Vision X lights in that new winch bumper, and they really make the H/L’s seem weak & too yellow (not after blue, just a brighter neutral white (was ~4700K the ballpark zone for “not blue-white, just pure white”?

    If so, some suggestions would be awesome - I’m a 2012 & the bulbs seem incandescent IMO from general use/compare to Vision X in bumper now.

    Open to suggestions!

    @OP - welcome to the sickness - funny think is I just bought the Bushwhacker flares like tours where I used to have the base units that integrated over the factory bumper skin (look in my gallery if you don’t know the ones I mean) - mine are painted black, but I would have thought them factory until I looked further & never seen a Rock Warrior with factory flares.

    I see a white theme in your driveway, where I like my cars, boats, and gubs in black, haha ;).

    Even my boxer dog is dark brindle, as close to black as you can get a boxer (he photobombed a few in my gallery too, he’s a goof like that.

    It’s all good...! I feel ya
    I have a HID kit for the heads and on the driving lights I personally don’t like the look of the LED housings, BUT if I can find the right look/set I’m in. I have a set of PIAA driving lights that go In the oem position that I need to install too.

    Haha, love the Dobies myself - last dog was a 1/2 fawn bitzach pitbull & dad was a pure Rottie - Cody was a leggy dog with a pitbull skull/torso & vivid birch/ deep brown Rottie marks. They clipped his tail, thankfully they didn’t cut his ears.

    I called him a “lab mix” for my homeowners’ policy, and my local vet his whole life just nodded at me (knew the rescue backstory himself).

    He was a rescue from what was suppoed to be a life fighting for methhead breeders in a $hit-town where meth invaded all the unemployed loggers, but local animal control found the litter somewhat late & asked around. I got him via a DWF guy I shot with back then.
    RIP, but he was a awesomely smart & gentile dog when asked, was intuitive about who he could ‘really play’ with & who he needed to shut it down & show manners around.

    Best mutt breed I’ve encountered - I’d love 3 more of him.

    Subject related - I’ll post some gallery pics of my OE H/L bulbs with my 4” Vision X LED’s to show color/temp difference - I’d like to bring my “yellow” headlights into the current world of color temp, but no desire to Depo the housings.

    I’m cool with HID / projector retrofits tho - like Depo retrofits in 80’s where we used DS2 (I think) setups.
