FLASH's 96Tacoma build.

Picked up a 96 Tacoma about two weeks ago, didn't get to post anything cuz I left for NZ as soon as I bought it. So here it is, 96 Tacoma 3RZ, 362,000km's. There's going to be a number of upgrades coming, looking to build a mild expo rig.


Soon to be upgrades/ mods:
-Rear locker
-OME Dakar springs
-Better skid plate
-Eagle alloy 100series rims
-Bushwacker street flares

How she sits today.
Artic Circle, nuf' said.


-33x12.50xr15 BF Goodrich KM2's
-3" OME lift (883 coils)
-Upgraded 555 ball joints
-TG Low profile tacoma bumper
-Custom rear bumper w/ swing out
-TG Weld-on sliders
-K&N air filter
-Flo-Pro exhaust
-CVT Mt. Bachelor tent
-Cobra CB radio w/ firestik antenna components
-20" CREE 8800Lumen, 120w LED bar
-Motomaster 1500w inverter
-Warn m8000 cable winch
-custom roof/ tent rack
-Acura Integra Seats







Got me some new tires. 33/10.5/515. Stuffed them under stock height. Pulled off the lower valence and took off the grill to be worked on.



My version of a satoshi build.



From the front, had some problems with bubbling paint, I don't know why though, I just put some touch up sprays on.



Put on my satoshi grill, new headlights and new rims!




This is my now somewhat multicolored interior. I swapped out the bench seat with Acura integra seats (I get a body hug every time I sit down...it's nice), and bought some jeep center console for the middle. I then painted the shifter boot and put on a new TRD shifter knob. I'll be adding a LED interior light as soon as it comes in the mail. Overall it's my effort to make the new truck feel a little bit more like MY truck. I'm thinking I might get the Smittybuilt ballistic seat covers and retrofit them to my integra seats, we'll see.













Also put in a K&N Filter, not sure I have noticed any change in HP but it's nice to know that I have a high quality and effective filter in the truck.


Sprayed my grill completely black...big woop.




Since this build doesn't seem to be attracting a lot of attention I'll give y'all a little sneak peek at my RTT bed rack for all you who are interested in expeditioning. I've already bought a CVT Mt. Bachelor tent to go on top. These are scale designs, I should be able to build the entire thing within a day. Steel is being ordered by a friend, and it should be mounted by the end of the month if all goes as planned.







New suspension parts.

yes indeed, just didn't think anyone followed this build. I'll post up some pics asap. Did some interior work, probably building a RTT rack on the weekend, will have a lift done by the end of the month if things go well, and will have a new front bumper before summer...

Nice man. The rack i think is gonna look great. Can't wait to see it built.

you'll be the 2nd guy to copy my roof rack idea haha...well..i stole it from Allpro..but they didn't finish it! haha

it is going to super crazy tall..i have a feeling you'll have to tweek the hieght once you start building it as 17'' tall to the base of only the second to last bend before it flatens out is pretty much..well..the top. The roof part would really just end up being an extension of the bed rack..not a bad thing..but just make sure you like it

I did lower it about 3" from the original, the base of the tent will be lower than the cab by a few inches. I think it should work.

Very nice build indeed always a follower of a 95.5-97 build. The black lines on the hood look good.

Got busy this weekend. Decided to put together my RTT rack and lift my truck. Hope Y'all like.

Fitting the bed rails.


The cuts for the arches


Sighting the arches


First arch fleshed out


First crossmembers put in


Roof rack being made




How the roof rack turned out.


Did my lift as well of course. These are my monstrous shackles from toytec.


New 555 ball joints top and bottom


New shocks.


Before Height:


After Height:


How it sits now with the roof rack.
