My 97 Taco build

This truck has been own by my grandfather since 2008 and I dreamed of owning it or another like it. then one Christmas, they surprised me with the truck title.
Specs:
1997 LX
3.4L
Auto
4wd

Current Mods:
Derped wheels
20% tint up front and windshield strip and 10% on the back
painted bumpers and grill
Green LED Floor lights
LED Glow light bar with reverse lights
tailgate sticker removal mod
Tinted taillights and 3rd brake lights
painted the chrome trim on the fenders black
Kenwood touch screen radio
Pioneer door and rear speakers
bedlined toolbox
White gage needles with blue needles
Rear 5100s
TRD coils
front 5100s at middle setting
New leaf pack and shackles (not installed yet)

Future mods:
retrofit headlights
new wheels (haven't decided which yet)
new tires (if I upsize wheels)
satoshi maybe?
fog light mod
bucket seat/bench seat swap so I can get a center console
custom sub box


Here it is stock the day after i first got it and took it through a little mud


derped


i installed 4 green LED bars all wired to come one when the radio comes on. But it has the option to turn them off when i dont want them on


radio


I also have this switch that isn't hooked up to anything. so i might get some fogs and use this switch for it. If y'all have better ideas let me know.





Tinted


painted


more paint

I took apart my instrument cluster and I noticed I had some bulbs in some spots that I never see light up. one is a gas light, which I don't know why it never lights up. and the other is a RR DIFF LOCKER which doesn't light up probably cause I don't have that. but here are pics

UPDATE: a few days ago I attempted the speedometer color change mod and completely failed so now my needles are clear and misshaped. so I went to the junk yard today, got some needles of a similar year camry, painted them blue THE RIGHT WAY and now currently waiting for my LED dash lights to come in. Don't know if the camry needles will fit but if not, ill just paint the crappy ones I have now.

Finally got around to white LED dash lights and I painted my needles blue! May may look as good as they should but I like it and I think it looks better than the ugly yellow/green combo!
