2003 TRD Tacoma 3.4 V6

Performance:
3.4 V6 TRD
TRD Supercharger
URD 7th Injector

Suspension
5" Tuff Country DB susp lift
ICON C/O
Custom 5.5" Deaver Leaf Springs

Tires/Wheels
34" TOYO M/T
17" Fuel wheels

Armor
Trail Gear Sliders
All Pro Front Bumber

Extra:
PIAA plasma bulbs
PIAA 520 Ion Crystal Fog
Blinker Relocation

As of today:




Bought new in 2003. Real mods didn't start until about 2011. Starting point...


After lift and tires, wanted more power. Tried a K&N but that soon came out.

Did research and wanted a S/C so yanked the CAI. Very happy day when this arrived...


Then came this...










Stock struts were worn so upgraded to ICON C/O and actually got some more ground clearance.

Nice taco, good choice on coming back! Are you sure you didn't have any influence in your wife's decision when purchasing the TE?

I really love the TE (gotta have the KDSS) but unfortunately our other ride is a swagger-wagon cause we got too many kids and the third row seats on a T4R LE is a joke.

You forgot the most important shot of the new T4R, a pic of the "party mode" button, it's icing on that rig!

Thanks man. I have to admit I largely influenced the decision on the new rig . She loves it more than I do now that she gets to drive it everyday though. The thing is really bad ass. And the only kid we have to haul around is a 15 month old shepherd who finds the back quite comfy compared to back seat of the pontiac she had to squeeze in. And yes haha- the party mode button is perhaps the most important feature on these things.

Ah ok, I knew I had seen them before, when I almost bought Crushers. Where'd you order them from?

Went through discount tires and getting a new set of BFG M/T's as well. The crushers look bad ass too, very similar.

Got my trail gear sliders painted and one side installed. I HATE the flame plate they welded on and hated how far they stuck out. So we cut them tucked them in a bit.





My buddy helped me weld them on. The guy is super smart and a beast. Here is is EVO 440 HP at wheels. Check out his website listed on his car.


Happy with the one side, now just have to find time for the other.
