Not 100% sure I'll stick with the spacers after the lift, these might stick out just a tad bit more than my liking. Maybe I'll just get used to how it looks and keep them on.











It'll look much better with a leveling kit; but to each their own.

I see a little bit of your headlight housing. Looks neat. Is it retrofitted or just painted housing?

And you’ll LOVE the look after the lift. Keep em on there and wait. You’ll see! Lol!

Make sure to check for rubs! Melt fo sho, maybe a tiny trim too (maybe).

@Adam12SD, it’s the black bezel ‘09 and up model. I put some in my ‘06 and will be switching them over to the 2010 VERY soon.

Neat. I have an 05. Never even knew these were available. Always thought it was custom.

I had no idea either but I do really like how they look. I remember doing this mod on my Tacoma where I baked the headlights in the oven and then spray painted the insides. Glad I don't have to do that one again.

Right! That's what I was assuming had been done. Lol.

Well, they're in my Amazon wish list now. It's a very... Very long list. Haha.

It looks perfect. Don't change a thing. It looks almost exactly where I was at after swapping to rims with and additional 1 inch offset. Melt mod did the trick for me. How important are wheel bearings anyway?
