5995's 98 Build

I got a 1998 Tacoma a few months ago for my first vehicle. Thought i may aswell create a forum post on my build to keep track of my progress.

Got the truck with 220,000 miles a few months back. I dont have any pics of the truck when i first got it but i havnt done many mods to it.

When I first got my truck i had to put a sound system into it. When i got the truck i found out the door speakers were replaced and a aftermarket deck was installed so all i had to do was get a amp and sub. So i went with the best company out there DC Audio and thankfully Rusty hooked me up with a DC 2k Amp and a DC XL 12" and i made a custom enclosure for behind my seat.

Completed Amp, Sub, and Box:

yea the only reason i made the box where i did was simply because i dont know anyone that could fit in the back of my truck. And for the satoshi grill i am thinking of making one i still got to install a 3" lift then maybe do the grill.

COOL! I have a black '00 and I did my sound system, but yours will be much nicer. Check out my build and I'm staying tuned for yours!

That bumper is going to look and work great on your truck. Looks like you could use a winch inside it too!

Sweet! Are you going to mount the solenoid in the bumper or under the hood? The shop that did mine managed to fit it under my bumper with the connector socket mounted on the top of the bumper. I have some crappy pics on my build thread.

I wanted to mount it under the hood but I would have to re-wire the whole winch solenoid box. So I am going to mount it in the bumper hopefully there will be enough room

Yeah that's one of the same reasons we didn't mount mine under the hood. There was enough room in mine, there should be enough in yours as the bumpers are very similar.
