Completely stock 2003 Toyota Tacoma

My first mod’s were seat covers and floor mats, just some cheap ones from Walmart. Then I bought a Mag light and mounted it in my cab, because you always need a flashlight.

Then I went to lowes and got a black low-rise toolbox.

And heres a side view

Next I added a K & N Cold Air Intake.

Then came my Bug Shield

Then I blacked out my taillights with some Nightshade.

Then I also added a flowmaster muffler with @ chrome tips.

Eventually I got my rims which are Moto Metal 951

I also painted my fender flares and the bottom half of my front bumper with some gloss black paint.

Then i got a Westin bull bar and some KC hilites



Here it is before..


Here it is now....


Then after all the mods are done...

Your truck looks good man. I bought an 03 Tacoma in May 11 was a great day for me as well being as I had to sell my 86 short bed chevy when I went off to college for a car. Its nice to have a truck again but anyways I'm in the process of a building my 03 too. So far repainted fenders/bumpers as well, 6 in Fabtech lift and tires/wheels. How do you like your exhaust and CAI? I've been looking around and your setup is what I'm considering going with, I'm worried about the sound of exhaust I just want a deep as possible sound, not loud. Thanks.

Nice build

Sick build man, I have an '00 prerunner that I was actually looking at the same rims (moto metal 951's). How much did all that cost you? I'm in the same position-- on a budget. But I want to black the lights, lift it and put those rims on, stick a nerf bar on and get a spray bed liner
