My ongoing Tacoma build!

Alright finally decided to make my thread! Here's a little back story...

Really wanted a TRD for a long time and four doors and green, however this little gem popped up with only 68k miles and after finding out they don't make manual quad cabs I decided to go for it. The color has started to grow on me the more black I add, and I seriously love my truck! This will probably be a slower build as I'm a college student but I'm always wanting to spend too much money on my vehicle... It's a problem.



Suspension:
OME 881's up front
Nitrocharger Sports all around
Dakar leaf pack

Tires/Wheels:
285/75/16 Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs
TRD Tundra "Ivan Stewart" edition painted gunmetal

Exterior:
Partial de badging
Plasti-dipped badges
Bestop Supertop

Interior:
Boston Acoustic speakers all around
Pioneer FH-P8000

Armor:

Lighting:
Morimoto mini D2s retrofit
Cleared and blacked headlight/corner light/fog light housings

Future:
Full OME and dakar leaf pack
255/85/16
Deck Plate mod
off road spot/flood, back up, as well as new retrofits for lighting
window tint
all chrome to black
New grille (Purchased and awaiting install)
armor all the way around!
Roof rack
stealth 8 or 10 inch sub w/ amp
Sound deadening
Wet-Okoles (Waiting for next GB)
CB
Possibly a bed rack
Probably more I'm forgetting as time/money are available!

Most current picture :



When I got it :


First partial debadged and plasti dipped!:


Retros:


Up at Mt. Hood:


Painted my Ivan Stewarts I scored off craigslist for $120 for all 4!


Installed Bestop:






Thanks for looking... Love this site and truck and looking forward to owning this beast for as long as I possibly can!

I love it! I haven't yet camped in anything too cold. I slept back there one night where it probably got 40-50 degrees and was pouring rain. It was water tight enough where no rain got through that I could notice and nothing I had back there got wet. I was plenty warm as well. The versatility and keeping the use of my bed is what sold me on it though.

Ty Sir! I love them. Apparently when I did them I put them on the truck and turned them on before I should have. So the driver side headlight housing melted a little bit. It's roughly the size of a quarter and not a big deal but it bugs me so I'm probably going to redo them at some point with FX-R's next time around.

Well I finally finished my marathon suspension install a whoppin 3 days before I'm moving back up to Fairbanks and driving the 2300 miles. But it was totally worth it and it's like I'm driving an all new truck!

When I was installing the dakar leafs I couldn't get a bolt out and had to wait for a ride to go get an angle grinder to cut it out. I got bored and decided to do a little work to the front end that I have been wanting to do for awhile. It's not quite finished as I really want to color match it and "satoshi" it. I already have the mesh and the paint I just need to do it. However this looks a million times better than the chrome I think so I'm happy for now.



Here is a picture of the stance now with OME 881's, nitrocharger sports all around, and dakar leafs.



for comparison, after wheels but before suspension :



Sorry for lousy pictures. My cellphone is all I have until I get back up to Alaska.

So I called around and les schwab had the cheapest alignment I could find. They said it would take about 45 minutes. Well about two and a half hours later they come out and ask if they could show me some things and hands me this quote to fix everything :





He told me to get the alignment within specs he had to "make my steering wheel way off". So now when driving straight my steering wheel is almost a full 180 degrees turned. Completely blocking my rpms and the cruise control is pointing straight down so I bump it with my knee sometimes. Really quite annoying.

Here are alignment specs:
