TRDChris's Build

This is my 2001 5 lugger

Suspension mods
Front
Fabtech 3 inch spindles

Daystar 1.5 coil spacers

Rear
Fabtech shackles (2 inches)

Pro comp AAL (1.5 inches)
Pro comp es3000 shocks

Other Mods
Deck plate mod

H.I.D 6000k
turn signal/fog light mod
Goodyear wrangler tires (235/75/15)
Fog lights behind my grill
warrior tire carrier

Clear corners
AVS Window vent visors

As of today....


First thing I did was paint my stock rims black.. they were on 225/70/15 Hankook radials and upgraded to the good year wrangler radials 235/75/15

I upgraded my stock grill to a billet grill and I also got a trd emblem off eBay.

I like the eyelids on the 2nd gens and have always wanted some for my first gen although they don't make them for the first gen. I made my own out of carbon fiber vinyl...small but makes a difference.

I plastidipped the back bumper, grille surround, grille, bumper. and added the fog lights behind the grill. I got a little crazy with the plastidip


I tinted the my fogs yellow and I used heat resistant paint to do the muffler black

Installed dust light


Next came the spacer lift to get some height up in the front and even it up with the back. They're daystar 1.5 spacers. Thanks to Joel for installing them for me




Thanks Joel i owe you buddy

The result

...Then came the lift
Waiting for it felt like forever but it was well worth it




Results...
3 inch spindles in the front ( daystar spacers helped achieve more lift)

2 inch shackles in the rear


I installed a tire carrier by warrior products

Thanks man appreciate that! I just wanted to try something different you know. I was tired of the same interior and I wanted some change! I want to black out the interior.
