Dirtslngr Tacoma build

Just another high school build

Okay so I figured it's time to start one of these, as I am actually starting to build it up a little bit. I got this the summer of '11, after selling my heep grand Cherokee. Needed something reliable and more stock than my last 4x4. I had always loved toyota's and was jealous of my buddies 4runner. Alright:
Specs: saved from PA, 02 extended cab sr5 , 2.7L, 5 speed, 4x4, ADD hubs, stock 4.30 gears and 265/70 tires

Here's a current picture :



Mods to date are :
BudBuilt front IFS skid
ARB bumper
4xinnovations sliders w/ kickout
265/75/16 treadwright mt/r on GY mt/r casings D-rated
Bilstien 5100s all around, on middle setting
Pinch weld mod beat to hell

Bought the truck from a dealer up in Philadelphia, PA. Flew up with my dad and drove the 800~ miles home. I learned to drive on the road home (5spd) , I think we stopped at a church parking lot somewhere in VA along the road.

Did a lot of wheeling stock, at Little mountain


Clearance was quickly an issue. See where the rear diff dragged

Also went to amicalola, old Bucktown, Dawson forest area





Local trails a mile from the house





I had a delivery job at the time so I got a lot of seat time in my truck driving that summer ( about 750 miles a week). I think my first purchase was a set of wet okole Trd seat covers, which I love. Second buy was a set of sliders about a month later, which we welded up at home in our shop. It was a good experience and coated them in rustolem bed-armor, which looks great and has held up to quite a few tree rubs on tight trails.

Did some maintainence, full mobil one synthetic oil change and replaced gear oil in transmission, cleaned and oiled the k&n drop in filter (came with the truck), new spark plugs and coil, new master and slave cylinder.
Also installed a ARB bumper, winch is soon to come. it's going to take a little work to line up perfect, the drivers side tow hook will not bolt in. I did not notice a drop in ride level, looks about the same as it did before with billies set at 1.25" and stock coils. I did notice a bit more roll in the front end in turns and a bit bouncier suspension.

I made the drive down for Durhamtown off-road park's Save The Park ride 2/25. A lot of built rigs there, I traveled down and met up with some Tacomas. A lot of buggies from pirate and jeeps attended.








Here's a link to all of my pictures for the weekend

I quickly realized I needed more clearance, a locker, and real skid plates.

Which brings me to my current state, I have had my Budbuilt installed for about 2 months now. i haven't had the chance to test it out on much other than sliding over a few logs. More to come!

Looks great! I would reinforce those bud builts before you dent the shit out of them. Makes it much easier when they are straight. Mine are bent to hell and its making it a lot harder.

I have seen some people use angle iron, right? I was going to use 1/4 plate probably, I planned on buying a sheet of it to build a belly pan with.

sweet. oh and i definately dented the gas tank skid on that last rock obstacle. i was getting winched off though, i had a steep drop off behind me so forward was the only option. also got slammed onto the frame rail, but looks like just a gouge, not bent. i have alot of ideas for a gas tank skid..

Would you mind sharing some of those ideas? I dented my gas tank and it stops working slightly under half a tank. I figured I should reinforce it before I completely mess it up. Thanks.
