Hey guys, figured I would start one of these since I've been here a while, just to keep track of my progress.
Haven't done too much to her, but slowly things keep getting added.
I found my tacoma at a local dealer. 72,000 miles...I was in love. I was just out of high school and going to college in Phoenix, AZ and wanted something super reliable and this is what I got.
I found TTORA and being from Iowa, never got to go to any Tacoma meets, let alone see any other Toyotas around. Well now that I was in AZ, I went to a few meets and took her on some trails and loved it! Even though it's a prerunner with no locker I still had some fun.
I started hanging around CustomTacos and started buying a few exterior pieces. Here it is with clear corners..
Then I got a TomTom..
Well my truck stayed that way for a while. Then one day I noticed a large dent in the front of my hood. I'm sure someone was drunk and either punched it or threw a rock at it. Either way, I didn't have the money to fix it. So I searched online and found a little hood bra to cover it up.
It's not everyones taste, but I kinda like it so I kept it.
Well after I graduated MMI, I got a job offer back home at a Honda Dealership. After a few months there I thought I would treat myself to some new wheels and tires.
A few weeks later I had my KMC enduros with Nitto Terra Grappler 265/75/16's installed.
March 2009 to present...
Here it is on a little trail...
Well, that's all I got now.
I just ordered a 3 inch spacer lift for the front. I'll order some spidertrax spacers later as well for when I install my 285's later this year/ next year.
I've put well over 50,000 miles on this truck and it hasn't skipped a beat. I plan on keeping it for a very long time even though the winters here aren't very fun with it.
Maybe someday I'll get a locker too...we'll see.
Thanks for looking! I'll add some more pics later.
