    After two crashes(pictured here is the first) I have come to a conclusion that my Lindsay Lohan is trying to kill me. I am really thinking about ditching the body kit. Stripping it down and having it looking STDish. I was wondering if anybody has pictures of all the holes I would have showing if I did pull off all of the pieces off? It would be welcomed. I have nearly a full set. My last accident left me with a broken door and scratches on the driver side bottom piece(can't seem to think of what the name of it was, slow day). I have only 40k miles on the 06' taco. I really need it out this summer and I can't stand that the body kit is falling off so I think it would just be better if I took it off.

    LMK of any of your suggestions. Thanks.

    First, welcome to the underground. :smile:
    Second, sorry to hear 'bout the accidents. :frown:

    In my opinion, I think most of the appeal of the X-Runner is the body kit. It just looks sportier, for a truck anyway. But if you have to keep fixing it up, then it'll cost a few bucks in the end. I don't have any pictures of the kit off, but I'd imagine it'd look like a normal Tacoma, just lowered, with holes. If you really want to ditch the kit, then I am sure some bondo, and paint could help all the holes, just probably couldn't put the kit back on.

    If it were me, I'd tone up on my defensive driving skills, and keep the kit. Either that, or just drive a beater truck/ car. :rolleyez:

    The kit already has some gaps in it after they fitted it back on from the first accident. The second time I had the accident I was too careless in the snow with my snow tire equipped truck doing drifts in parking lots.

    I love the kit but I can live without it. Annoying rattles and upkeep keeps me from saying no to taking it off.

    One question is, How much does the kit weigh all together? Maybe get a little performance out of it.

    [​IMG]SO I did a little paint and I think this is how it would look like with holes. LMK if you know about any other hole I should know about.

    OH snap I forgot there was holes all around the fender for the flares too.

    My x is black so I don't notice the holes so much. If you search for a thread called all wheel drive looking x runner I posted pics of all the holes for another member.

    I completely agree I think they look horrible with the body kit removed. Just fix it and stop texting and driving lol. If the body kit is loose or rattles then there are probably clips missing or broken. There are ways to fix a loose body kit the are way easier and cheaper than pulling the whole kit off, filling all the holes and getting a bunch of the truck re painted.

    Thanks BSPO6XRU for the link and not bashing me on my accidents. Even though it was my fault, who wouldn't hoon the **** out of the truck. Oh wait you don't. Yeah Yeah Nazi Speed Police.

    @justin13703 - I was thinking about going another route let us say a unique look. Even though we Xr owners come far and few in between, I still want my vision of my own car. I had an old 91' Honda Prelude 4ws and they were fun, rare, beautiful looking cars. I had history with that ****er but it was mine. The times where I almost gave up fixing that car and just buying a new one. No I made it alive again. I want to do the same to my Lindsay. I think I have a issue with being different. LOL
