CHECK OUT MY 03 build and a few past yotas

Hey guys traded off the taco yesterday for a dad wagon(FJ Cruiser). Hated to let her go but my kid was just getting to cramped in the extended cab. We got my wife a 11 trail model 4runner in september and I guess I was getting space/function&comfort jealous. Although i will miss my tape player in the taco haha.Cant wait to start playing around with it see where it leads.















Home and waxed up last night.Some of the new 4runner.















Hey everybody im still new to this so have patience with me. I got this 2003 SR5 4x4 2.7 ext cab 5 speed with 80,250 on her I know still a baby. I found this site and just cant wait to start adding some more to it. This pic is close to when i brought it home even before the tint.


So of course the tint had to go on. So my buddy Jason helped me slap some 5% on in my garage and it turned out great if i say so myself

.
Now Ive had at least six toyota trucks and havent ever done much in the customizing area but this time im ready to lift one a bit I think. For now i bought some atx chambers and 31x10.50 BFG'S till im ready for a lift

.
I tried to get the BFG'S on my honda just wouldnt clear


Im heading to the tire shop tomorrow afternoon to get the wheels mounted I got the wrong size center caps from tirerack and they had to send me the right size. Ill include a few other pics ive taken and as soon as i get home with the new rims and tires on I'll post them up too. Im sure there will be lots more to come


Had it all cleaned up above.
Heres my wifes 08 4runner i get to drive it when it needs gas and maintence done



My favorite 4runner we have had traded it in on the 08 when we found the boy was on the way for the side curtain airbags and what not had 96000 on it the day we traded it


My blue 07 taco v6 SR5 4x4 double cab is in the background above.

Only a couple more I promise this was my 98 SR5 4x4 Ext cab bought it with 14500 on it sold it with 174000 on it with the orignal clutch in it,and i taught my wife to drive a 5speed on it with a 155000 on it
.


Well thats all for now as soon as i get some more done to my 03 I will update everybody.

Alright guys and gals sorry it took so long but got my new rims and tires on finally let me know what you think!!!












Im thinking about getting some billy's to level up the front soon. More to come thanls for for the words guys.

Sorry it took so long but I did a little maintence and got the deck mod done let me know what you guys think.














Had a inner tie rod end go bad and took to my buddies to replace it and change the fuel filter.



Thats all for now I'll keep the updates coming.

Got the tail lights and third brake light done yesterday.


Whats up guys havent been doing to much recently to the taco took a trip to NC to see the grandfather and got 20.6 MPG on the way. I have had a bit of a right front rotor wobble for a month or so and just started to get a bit of a squeak coming to a stop. So being ive got 109thousand on it and it still has orignal stock rotors time for a change. I went with stock pads and rotors cause my brother could get me a deal and stock always fits best right! I'll get more pics up of them being changed out after im done sunday. Ive also have some bedside and centercaps stickers coming from sockmonkey soon and will post them up when I get them on. Thats all for now have a good one.


2/27/11 Got the new rotors and pads on this morning doing great. Did the whole bedding in process with the pads hoping a cop wasnt hiding out wondering why is was braking hard from 60 to 15 8 or 10 times on the main road. Thanks a lot to my little brother for the help.






Now the deer wont hear me squeak to a stop this fall and unload their silent death from the switchback xt!!



Plus I did the maglite mod and forgot to put the pic up did it probably 2 months ago.

Thanks man last night I went to a buddies and changed the inner tie rod in on the driver side and changed the fuel filter. I got my deck plate at the boat store and will hopefully get to get the deck plate mod done soon. I took some pics and will get them soon.

It's a 4 inch deck plate for a boat you can get at any marine store. RTV high temp blue sealer and sheet metal or dry wall screws. Plus a high flow air filter I used a K&N. I went a step further and put some screen material just like a screen door to keep the large stuff out. If you search Deck Plate Mod there will be someone with a step by step. But it's just as easy as I wrote it out. Trace your deck plate cut out with a dremel and trim for a snug fit just follow my pics.
