Here is my 04 build. Still have some mods coming this week too. Love to spend to way to much time on this thing..
Most pics were just taken with my phone, so I apologize haha.
Wanted a 'clean' looking truck, so here were go.
Any tips or suggestions?
Then came the Magnaflow exhaust with a 3" stainless tip. Love the sound. Tested out a Flowmaster 40 series, Cherry bomb, and then the Magnaflow and ended up liking the sound of the Magnaflow the best.
Most important mod: Stereo
Sony Deck. Had no problems and love the settings it comes with.
Four Pioneer 3 way 6X8's. These things go louder than you'll ever need them too haha.
One inch Pioneer tweeters. These actually made a big difference.
Stock vs. Pioneers
1800 watt Kenwood Amp with custom built box and JBL tens to start out.
One 10 on each side. This makes it so I can still use the two seats in the back which I surprisingly do a lot haha, they just are deaf when they get out.
Replaced by Jl Audio's with some grilles for safety. Best decision ever. Currently running 900 watts @ 2 ohm to my 2 tens, 1 ohm capable @ 900<
It's an old video and my amp was only turned up half way, but it's an example. It's hard to record that much bass hahah.
Window Tint. Dark as possible, legally. 50% on the driver and passenger and Limo (5%) on the back three.
Blacked out tails, which I soon found out is illegal here after getting a ticket...which I took to court and got it dismissed. FTW.
Many decals. Today I only have two "Jl Audio" little decals and they're here to stay. You can see in the last final pic.
Debadged the tailgate....still deciding on de-badging everything or not..
10K HID Kit.....cops love 'em as much as the people who pass me....hahah
K&N FIPK which destroyed my MAF. Also installed an airaid TB spacer while I was at it.
I did definitely see about ten hp gain and increase in mpg. I never get below 20 mpg anymore. I got as low as 16 when everything was stock.
18" Rockstars. Lift is soon to come when I get back from my LDS mission hahah.
Blue LED strips to compliment my headlights. Replacing these soon since I got a fix it ticket for them haha.
K&N replaced with an oil-free AEM which made my exhaust deeper and seems to have a smoother airflow...plus it looks WAY better.
With the K&N I noticed a sort of 'hiccup' in my engine when I accelerated fast...not sure why. I reset the ECU and it still happened. After I installed the AEM, it is a much smoother RPM climb than the FIPK. Kind of weird, but the AEM has aluminum tubing compared to the the K&N's plastic so it just seems like the AEM would have more airflow....meh. I would recommend the 'AEM Bruteforce' for ANY Taco owner over the oil based K&N.
Simple new 12" antenna. Haven't had any weakened signal for radio...but I listen to my ipod most of the time haha
LED tail lights to make the cops happy...even though they are ridiculously bright. Spyders.
Dome Light haha
LED Third Brake. Took hours to install since I figured out you have to take apart everything on the inside to remove TWO freakin' tiny nuts...looks sick now tho at least.
6K LED license plate lights. Made sure they're not blue so the fuzz don't have yet another reason to pull me over haha.
Pretty crappy cell phone pic, my bad.
Most recent mod got done today (17th) new fillers and T-Rex grille. Love the look.
Fillers with stock grille:
Then the new T-Rex grille:
(had to get rid of the blue LED strips because of a ticket which I got dismissed)
Found out these lights are on back order until February, and I'll be gone by then, so nothing will be happening to my lights...which blows. Would have gone nicely with the new black fillers.
As it sicks today. YEAH.
THANKS FOR CHECKIN' MY BUILD OUT
