03 taco daily driver build


Truck after mudding still stock

just brought it home from the dealership

all pro bumper, first mod done replacing 1st honda kill carnage bumper

bumper now painted & installed with reverse lights mounted in gaps

before lift

after lift

ARB bumper and winch

Truck before ARB bumper install

ARB bumper as of now

Smitty built 8k winch

4.88 gears, G2 in the front, Yukons in the rear w/ royal purple fluid

the old 4.10 gears

My box of scrap parts after the new front differential and gears were installed

Rear diff mod

Breather for rear diff relocated to inside gas cap

Front diff breather relocation to the right of the master cylinder

used some plumbing fittings to extend the lines for the front breather mod

K&N intake and red top Optima battery (I know I used B-caps ran out of heat shrink and been to lazy to get more and fix it )

Flowmaster 40 series exhaust

Hi Lift jack, strapped and chained to side of bed

New rock crawler rims on 35" pro comp x terrain tires

Rear window decals

Truck as of now with new rims and N-fab step

Just ordered the prerunner tiregate so will have a full size spare soon, have the pics of the tiregate attached below, also taking off N-fab steps and getting sliders instead. will update thread once I get them installed.

other future mods are radflo front coilovers, new rear shocks(undecided with brand), internal roll cage, and custom front skid plate

So thats my build

(Have tons of new pictures up on my profile of the old mods and mosier valley trips with the beattle buggy check it out)

(attached some pictures from the OHV bridgeport trail meet below)


Made a build thread in the Texas thread so if pictures dont show up go to the link below

http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/tex...you-think.html

figured I would post it where its supposed to be
going to update it when I get the sliders and pre runner tiregate installed.

tiregate is the only maker for the tail gate tire carrier replacements, they carry the current patent that makes them the only people allowed to make a tire carrier that can replace your tailgate. many vedors such as 4xinnovations tried to make a cheaper version, but were threatend by tiregate so had to stop production. Thats why you will see some guys have different kinds of tiregate knock off's, but those will most likely be one of a kinds....the tiregates are sold everywhere, just have to research to find the best price. bought mine from james oaks online store for 773.00 shipped to my door so they are not cheap, but thats because tiregate has the current monopoly on them so can charge that price and unless you can fab your own, your going to have to pay the high price. ill post the pictures of mine tomorrow during lunch dont feel like messing with getting them off my phone right now cause its late, but the tiregate looks awesome and have gotten numerous thumbs up since even a hour after installation, so definitely a head turning upgrade thats for sure.

Looks like 6" fabtech. Truck looks great other than the lift. Not trying to be a dick, I'm just not a fan of DB lifts. But if it's working for you, keep rockin it.
