Story time!

Now before I get started, I have to give a special thanks to my mom and dad (Sullyman). This truck was my 18th birthday/graduation gift and I couldn't be happier. Mom and Dad jump through hoops helping me and my brother out with everything and without them not only would I not have my truck, but I wouldn't be the person I am today, and of course I am not being conceded, but I'm happy with who I am as well as my accomplishments so far in life. Again, I just couldn't have done it without Mom and Dad.

Time to get on to the fun stuff!
Here she is the day I first layed eyes on her at Carmax. Bone stock.


First thing I did after the first car wash was personalize the taco with my stickers. They came off later on to clean up her up a bit. The only sticker still on the truck today that is in this picture is my Not of This World sticker.


Then after taking off stickers, I went and got more from Sockmonkey! I got a TRD windshield banner, a TRD 3rd brakelight cover, and TRD PreRunner bedside decals. Also picked me up a Westin Bull Bar for $50 from Matt, a used to be local to me Tacomaworld member.


Also picked up my Magnaflow Cat-Back Exhaust and the AEM Brute Force Cold Air Intake.


Didn't do much for a while after that except for my audio and smaller boring mods, but I did go out to a couple meets. One to the Outer Banks with a bunch of TW guys, and the other was to Shoe Creek with Bandit and Fennywald.



Finally, I got my lift. 3" Skyjacker kit. Also plasti-dipped my rims after getting my Nitto Terra Grapplers. Unfortunately I got my tires before the lift so I've been running stock sized tires on my truck since.

Before the lift...

After the lift...


My next two mods/additions were influenced by a couple accidents I had. I'll tell you what, the stock bumper is a champ, and I could have kept it on the truck because there was such minor damage after both accidents on the same exact bumper. Only reason I did was because insurance paid for a new one for me. I had money from the accident left over after buying the bumper so I scored me a Hi-Lift as well...

Accident #1

Accident #2


Total damage to my rear bumper after being through both accidents...

And the new bumper. Looks a lot better than the chrome. Cheaper too


I've only done some smaller cosmetic mods since then such as the red LED's behind the gauges and the Wink Panoramic Mirror. Here's a pic of the mirror installed, and before you judge, I too was under the influence that it was just a trendy thing for the annoying Honda kids these days. But with this thing there are no blind spots! It's like magic!


That's all I have really done as of right now, but I'll tell you this truck has a long way to go before I'm done with her. Anyway, here are the next few things on my priority list:

-B.A.M.F. Sliders (already have 'em and just waiting to be installed)
-Back to factory airbox with the Deckplate Mod and TRD Air Filter
-4WD conversion


Thanks for reading my build thread y'all! Subscribe for updates!

I didn't like how the stock mirrors were so small so I bought one of the oversized mirrors but everytime I hit a bump it moved down and I would have to keep adjusting it. Considering buying one of those huge mirrors how much did it run you man?

I bought mine at pep boys for $25. Just when u mount it make sure you get a good bite with the screws. Mine shakes a little. But it doesn't change position or anything. I love it personally. And I can see the people that like to ride in my blind spot in it as well

Lookin' good! I've also had someone total herself on my rear end- I got my suspension and built my rear bumper with the $

You'll love those tires, I've got them in the same size and they are badass. Let me know if you get any rubbing up front on your frame. I've got slight rubbing, but can't tell if it was because I put my tires on before suspension- not sure if they still rub.

Anyways, sub'd for updates

I've posted this in the What did you do today forum and in the local one, but it has to be in the build. Got a red paint pen at NAPA for about $3, and spent 45 min to an hour on each tire dabbing along the letters. I like the turnout.
