97 yo taco build

i bought this truck in june of 2012 bone stock.


today 2-27-13


as she sat when i first bought her


decided to ditch the camper, also went and got her dirty for the first time


then a guy decided he wanted to come at me around a blind corner, luckily by the time we hit we had both slowed considerably


he had no insurance so i got full replacement value
figured it was time to invest in a nice front bumper instead of returning to stock



then my stock skid plate got hung up as i was backing out an almost stuck situation and bent under itself (sorry no pics of that right now). i then fabed my self a skid plate out of a stop sign i had laying around.


i love the look of halo's and halos aren't made for my headlights so i bought some cheapo ones off of craigs list. looks>performance. not what i usually like but these make the front look really mean. wouldn't recommend them if you still like to drive at night



my billys came in


sorry no comparison pics of before and after but as of right now its just stock coils set at 2.5.

this is just kinda my poser flex shots



and another muddy shot



new rims, 15x10 4.5in bs
before:



after:


how far they stick out


new meats for the girl, 33x12.5 hankook mt and i love them! they havent failed me yet and keep impressing me

i had to do the pinch weld mod and have cut out alot of the plastic and now the dont rub on the street. if im out in a trail tho and im flexing alittle and turn they rub pretty bad.

added a 2" block to the rear so the tires would quit rubbing the upper fender

well i broke a leaf, 2 actually, so much for using toyota leaves and building a pack just went with 63" chevy springs! these are the three leaf pack minus the over load and i would say i have around 5 inches over stock of lift


list will be added to as i find new things i want to do


im open to any advice or suggestions! shes a work in progress and will keep this thread updated as i get new parts

I'm still waiting for someone with a 96/ 97 tacoma to NOT get the low profile bumper with the stinger. Think you might have a change of heart and cut it off? I had one once with my old 88 pickup, cut the stinger off, looked way better.
