tacomazach's double cab build

I got a new-to-me truck. Finally have a 4wd instead of just a prerunner.

It's an 02 double cab 4x4 TRD
144,000 miles
I'm pretty excited

Plans are to build it as an expedition/overland rig while keeping it a daily driver. I have a lot of plans and Ideas but this will be a very slow build. Saturday I plan on switching the rims and tires from my green truck to the silver one. I also hope to pull the spacer lift and aal and switch it over to the silver to give me some room until I can afford some coilovers.







Mods to date:
Bed:
Removed toolbox
removed plastic bedliner
camper top
Bed storage system
relocated cb antenna

Inside:
aftermarket cd player in dash
cb in dash
2m radio (not installed yet)
hardwired gps

Other:
relocated rear diff breather
gray wire mod
2 low mod
debadged

Future plans:
Armor:
Trailgear sliders
Front Bumper (some type of plate bumper)
Rear Bumper (most likely custom with tire swing away)
Skids of some sort

Bed:
custom basket on top of camper
fresh water tank under bed

Suspension:
OME 882s up front
custom leafs
bilstein 5125s in rear
u-bolt flip kit

Inside:
replace all stock speakers
12 volt power inverter

Other:
cut exhaust pipe for clearance
Dual battery setup
on board air with air tank

I'm sure there is more but that is all I can think of as of 9/11/11

Very nice...good luck with the switch overs. Looks like you'll have fun projects for next few years.

nah just one project. once I get the stuff off the green truck I plan on selling it to pay for the majority of the silver one. I love that truck, just can't afford to keep up two trucks

Got the ugly running boards taken off to give a little more clearance





Got the cb mounted in its temporary spot. eventually I will get one mounted in the dash under a cd player. got the antenna mounted on the passenger side. I'd rather have it centered but the way the toolbox was on the inside it was impossible. It looks crooked but its just bent back under the carport.





Also did the gray wire mod. very simple easy and effective.

Awesome man, glad to see you finally got hte one you wanted and why wouldnt the antenna work in the middle? i centered my bolts on the antenna mount around that lil bar that runs from each handle and it doesnt effect it...maybe yours is different but Good Luck w/ build and swap!

that little bar had a guard that went all the way around it and was about two inches thick and at a weird angle. If I got some real long bolts I guess it could be possible. But I wanted it done today lol. I might do a little wheeling with a guy after we swap the stuff tomorrow so I needed it in.

I have a good girlfriend that followed me in the green truck to a buddy's house to work on the swap.

The green truck is now back to stock.


and the silver one looks a million times better. It now has a 2.5" spacer and aal. I know its not the best but this is just temporary.


and my girlfriend and I have coordinating vehicles.
