Tacomaprerunner's 2001 DC Build

Alright, here's my build so far.

Bought her used in December 2009 with 136,212 miles on her. One owner.

Truck information - 3.4L V6, PreRunner TRD Off Road Package

Running boards and a tonneau cover were already installed.


The previous owner had removed the front mud flaps.

I left the tonneau cover and running boards on through the winter (the tonneau provided some extra weight in the back), and had 4 sixty pound sandbags in the bed for the winter.

The first change I made to the truck was the removal of the running boards.


Eventually the tonneau cover came off - I left the mounting hardware in place.



Then the infamous get-stuck-in-the-mud mod.








Hauled some rock and mulch for some projects around the house




Frame rusted through on the right side; frame replacement followed shortly thereafter


The old frame


New frame








Ordered 5100's and AAL


And here is how she sits now






Future mods:
Deck Plate
Wheels and tires
Spacers?
Suggestions?

Nice! Did Toyota buy the frame and install it free?

Also, have you done the deck plate mod yet? I did and i love the way it sounds when i floor it. Sound like a vacuum under the hood

nice..I want a new frame : ( How does it ride with the new leafs and the toytec aal. I'm thinking of getting rid of my block and putting in an aal..

Also you think you could post some pics of the leaf packs to show what kind of arch the aal gives the packs?
