00tbaytaco build

Finally decided to put together a build thread of my truck

Started out with this about a year ago in October 2011..
2000 Tacoma sr5, standard, v6, 4x4, 132000kms, safetied for $7500.





Took me about a month of driving it to figure out I wanted tires and a lift for it, started getting the plans together and found these new tires on used rims for a steal and picked them up, Procomp Xterrain 33x12.5 on procomp 15x10" steel rims and a spare.



A couple weeks after I picked up the tires, I was checking my fluids and my coolant was full of oil. Blown headgasket. Lift was put on hold, started ordering parts to do a rebuild. Parked the truck and drove my car from january until april when school was done for the summer so I had time to rip the engine apart.

Got these parts, plus the rebuild gasket kit. Waterpump/timing belt replacement kit.



Finally started the engine in april

Mess


Parts!


Cams


Block all cleaned up


Shiny new engine parts


Painted up the intake and valve covers while they were off


Quickly did the deckplate mod and tossed in an AFE pro-dry filter


Back together, she runs


While the truck was off the road I decided to do something about the chrome and grey faded plastic on the front and back and saved my rusty floor pan with some POR15




Pulled off the running boards, and drove it out of the garage with the new painted front end.


Truck and car


After the summer I finally decided what I was doing and made the big order. Picked this stuff up in middle of november and started working on it again.


Full list includes:
Bilstein 5100 adj shocks
Eibach Coils
OME Dakkar 2.25 leafs
Bilstein 5100 rear shocks
Bushwacker cut out fender flares
Flowmaster Super 44
Powerstop front brake kit
New front calipers
and all the little parts to go along with it



Missing some pics of the install cause they are on my old phone



Decided to do it up nice and paint the UCA and spindle with POR15 to match the new parts

Sketchy ass spring compressor, it was so tight we put an impact gun on it lol, still have my hands surprisingly. To anyone else doing this, bring it to a shop, i did the install on a sunday so i couldnt bring it anywhere


New parts


Brooo lean


Almost done


Finally finished, didnt have time to do the flares. those will be going on soon




Mock up of the flare


Had to do my inner tie rod before I could get an alignment done


Alignment done! As it sits now..
