My first Tacoma build

I bought my truck 2/3/2013 with 138k miles

2000 toyota tacoma 4x4
3.4l v6

Current Mods:
Bilstein 5100 suspension
1.25 inch wheel spacers
12 inch subwoofer with a 200watt amp and 8 guage wiring
uws black diamond plate tool box
k&n cold air intake
Plasti dipped emblems and bumpers
custom bedrails
bedlined tailgate
Metal grill

Future Mods
Mid travel (maybe?)


Current picture





my truck when i got it.


Yes i know it is a body lift....


the first thing i did to it was put a K&N cold air intake



The next thing i did was change my rims to black


now black





After that i put some coverking seat covers in.





Next i decided i wanted to start blacking out the chrome so i started small and did the logo first



ill post more pictures when i get all the chrome done

if you guys have any suggestions hit me up!


Took my truck mudding at a buddies farm. My truck did great, the rear diff lock is a life saver haha!! When you guys go through alot of mud do you have trouble staring for the next couple days?





The crew haha



Ordered a new grill off ebay for 40$ haha fits great only had to drill two holes




Installed the bilsteins today

They make my truck ride amazing







Got the tool box installed

I put a half inch of foam padding on the bottom and covered it with part of a moving blanket, it reduces almost all of the rattling.


Took a trip up to four peaks. On the way back my upper balljoint completely popped off, like the nut was stripped. the funny thing is i had just had those replaced at 4wheelparts. needless to say i was pissed.




Havn't been on here in awhile but here are some photos of wheeling and stuff
The camping rack works great and holds two spares!



Pulled a buddies rail out to the desert last month.

fir all the chrome trimmimg i also started blacking it out. best results, dipthe trims in bleach for a few days, that will eat the fake chrome of down to the bare plastic and i even sand blasted it just so the black paint would grab better to the trims.

I don't know if you're from the south but mud and AZ aren't normally used in the same sentence. And the few times when there is some mud it's a nasty ass goo that's basically the equivalent of wet cement... once it hardens gl hf gg no re thx.

The uws toolbox works great!

I was pulling out of my works parking lot and couldnt resist going over this tiny hill haha.
