You're tall now, write it down somewhere so you know before you enter a parking garage. I think I fit like 60-70% of the places around here.

Very unique build. A Blizzard Pearl T4R that looks like a TRD PRO with a Lexus looking interior. Love it!

I just got these JBA UCA’s yesterday. They look awesome. Can’t wait to install them.




These are the std high caster. But when I compared them to stock, I’m surprised they actually have more clearance.

Rides the same. But I didn’t notice a bit more wind/road noise on the freeways. I need to drive it more to really get a feel if things. But for now feels same.

Added a couple of usb charges on the console today. One of them has a voltmeter.







Also I added a pair of LED bulbs in the armrest. It’s triggered by a mercury switch. Now I can see in there when it’s dark.

If you don't mind my asking, where did you find your hood? eBay sells a "Sherman" hood for $215 shipped, but I haven't found much helpful information on their quality.

Since they come unpainted and I have some experience wrapping, I thought about wrapping the hood in 3M gloss white. I ordered some samples from several vinyl companies and found that 3M's is virtually indistinguishable to my eyes from Toyota's SW. That would price the entire mod at just under $400. Not sure if I'd paint it first to avoid the risk of rust down the road though.

I ordered it from my local Toyota parts counter (online) and took it to a shop to get painted. It was cheaper to buy it locally and pay taxes, rather then having it shipped.
