So Tacoma hood, fenders, grille, and headlights. And compatible/custom front bumper. And repaint. Tacoma's don't have gas shock supports for the hood so that will need fabricated too. Not sure how they latch so hood pins will probably be necessary.
I imagine the hoods are similar in length to the 4runner, could probably use the 4runner hood latch on the Tacoma hood. Does seem kinda sketchy to have a hood only mounted with only 1 bolt per side.

I don't understand the whole making your own hood thing. Seems like it would be 10x easier to just modify the mounting points of a tacoma hood so everything else lines up correctly.

yeah my mcneils flares don't match either and it would probably be easier to do the fender to door. i would be stronger where the headlight meets

this conversion would be awesome if you wanted a sport hood and need new headlights.

Wow that looks amazing, I even like those holes in the front/rear bumper. Does anyone know more details about it? Look at the nice crease on the fender that runs off the headlight, looks awesome.
