I'm using LED's from superbrightleds in mine, no tint on my car but it shows through on my 4Runner pretty nice.

I have owned a couple of those cusco braces, and they seem to loose their paint pretty quickly.

I like the red more than the black but IMO you can't beat the stock look

Red looks pretty great. I think any of your options are going to add to your ride.

Thank you all for the kind comments! Credit must go to my friends Luc for the paint and body work, the Pitsikos brothers for the interior and Uwe for all the mechanical work! Their wizardry makes my vision and design reality...
