Yopu never know what your are going to get with a knockoff kit. Sometimes they will fit fine othertimes you will have spent more money trying to get them to fit and look good then you would of buying the real deal.

Just remeber you pay for what you get!!!

it's a replica, which means a couple of things:

1. it's Fiberglass, not Urethane (like authentic TRD's)
2. it will probably need slight modification to fit correctly.

but still, it isn't a bad price. buy now for 348 is about average for a replica.

my advice: don't buy the TRD style kits. since it's a factory offering, it's not a true custom kit. many people who could care less about aftermarket (and cars for that matter) drive with the TRD kit. you won't be taken seriously from tuner people.

ditto, if price is a consideration i recommend this as well.

1. it will fit PERFECTLY
2. it's Urethane (will generall last longer)
3. it's true aftermarket

it is a lip kit though, so don't expect to have a full front/back bumper replacement.

veilside sideskirts will go with neither the TRD or ww kit. (too low).

if you like the vs sides, then go with a blitz, buddy club, or vsI or vsII front/rear to make it even.

so are the veilside sides and rear bumper like replicas of TRD parts? they look exactly the same to me...

edit: i see the back bumper is a little different, and the sides have twists in them.

i could buy the WW kit, keep the rear and sides and sell the front lip as brand new, and purchase the TRD front bumper from ebay.

the sides are similar (but as you pointed out are indeed slightly different). but the main difference is how low they are. the veilside sides are visibly lower than the TRD and ww sides.

bought my kit off ebay like that. Wouldn't do it again, had to have a lot of work done for it to fit correctly. Looks real good now but had to pay $$ to get it that way. Would reccomend finding someone who is selling a used Urethane kit.

any difference would be less than half an inch.. they're practically identical.

I have ww myself, currently at stock height (and obviously with stock rollers.. until this next week, that is grin):

thumbsupLooks just about the same but will give you some cred in the eyes of tuners and it is Urethane which is much stronger than Fiberglass
