Alaskan 04 ext cab

Well after 20 something vehicles, I finally decided to step up and get me a nice Taco. Before this i've owned an 88,91,93 regular cabs 4wd and a 92 reg cab 2wd, all 22re 5 speeds. Then when I got to AK I picked up a 00 reg cab, shortly after that I decided that I had enough money saved up I wanted to get an 01-04 ext cab with under 100k to keep for a couple yrs and stop buying/selling/trading every month. So I ended up with a 04 ext cab TRD/SR5, 3.4L 5 speed she has 91k right now. It just came up from California, still had the cali title when I got it. Obvious mods are ARB front bumper, warn winch (not sure what model), cooper discoverer STT 285's, glasspack muffler, weld on sliders (dont know brand), 2 small square lights on bumper, old school kenwood deck, and a mild lift. The guy I got it from bought it from the dealer he worked at where it was traded in for a new STI and didnt know much about it. From what I can tell, it has OME rear shocks, and an after market leaf pack in rear. I've been told it could be a dakar? And front has OME coilovers. I LOVE the truck so far, its 100x nicer than anything i've owned until this point, but she has a few quirks. Previous owner had the slave cylinder replaced and I dont think they bled it good enough. The clutch pedal sticks half way up and only comes all the way out if I nudge it with my foot. I'm hoping a good bleed will fix that and the super short throw after the play that it has. As far as build plans I aint got nothin super serious in line, just some little things here and there to make it my own, it will be my DD and I plan to make the drive back to TN from here in AK with it when my term here is done. So far I want to get rid of all the chrome, either black out the stock wheels or buy some black steelies, possibly get rid of my ARB for a tube/hybrid, get a aftermarket rear bumper, some window tint, a low profile black toolbox for the bed, and the typical first gen mods (grey wire, deckplate, etc.) also get some retrofit projectors and black out my housings. Probably will camo out my interior during all that too . I only have one pic for now, but will get some more when this Alaskan sun decides to rise! Also since im and bored, i'll throw in some pics of my old yotas. I'm always open to suggestions for my build process so let me know what yall think I should do next!
my newest, the 04 on the far left. Taken from a small run my AK group did the other day

My 92. It had a little over 250k when I bought it, but still had cold ac, and ran perfect. No BS, but I loved it, I was in high school at the time, at 25+mpg?! Of course I drove the Sh*t out of it! I sold it to one of my best friends, who destroyed it, but I made him a good deal so he got his money out of it. Far as I know its still running and driving though!.

Ending up having a slow night at work and knocked out the grey wire mod tonight. Going on a snow run with the local club tomorrow we'll see how she does!

When/if you ever want to sell that ARB, let me know Oh, and how are the STTs? I'm trying to choose between them, BFG KM2s, or goodyear duratracs.

Will do. I like them so far. Did pretty good on our sutton run last weekend. I dont really have anything to compare them too except the BFG A/T's that were on my reg though, and I never took it out in any real snow. Jeremy has the duratracs and he loves them they did great at sutton too.

Good to know. I do like how the STTs look, but I don't know if I really need a MT tire. That's why I was thinking of the duratracs as well. I've just heard they don't last that long.

I love the look of them too. Im not sure about the life of the duratracs, Jeremy's still look really good but I have no idea how many miles are on them.

Thanks man its got a ways to go still. I'm not sure about my old red truck, last I saw it was a couple months after I sold it in 08. Somebody had primered the bed and looked like it'd been ragged out pretty good. I heard it went to Crossville but I have no idea.
