Fernando's "04 Silver Bullet" Build!!

Sup Everyone, Thanks for checking my build. I had bought a white 03 DC pre-runner back in August of 2012. It was my first truck ever so I wasn't really sure what I was doing. I loved that truck but it really sucked that it wasn't a 4x4. Once I fixed her up a bit I realized that she couldnt take me where I needed. So I was debating to convert it to a 4x4. I realized that I dont have the time, and I am not mechanically inclined to pull that off. Sooooooooooo, I traded her in with 203k miles (Still running like a champ) and purchased a silver 04 DC 4x4 V6with 120k miles!!! What a difference in the motor. Night and day!!! V6 FTW!!!!!!!!!!!! Never will I go 4cyl again! This thing is a beast!

Future plans include Sliders, MT tires, Lift, Front bumper with winch, Rear bumper, and lockers (front and rear)..all in that order

My inspiration has been boxrocket! damn i love his truck!! hope to have a badazz rig like that one day.

Let the pictures speak. Comments and constructive criticism welcomed

And what i have so far!! more to come soon

So I sprayed the front bumper, rear bumper, and fender flares with bedliner, then hit it with satin black. Coated the whole underbody with rubberized undercoating. Cleared the headlights to get rid of that nasty yellow haze. Plastidipped my wheels. Window tint up front next weekend, then on to bigger things!

Thanks again for looking

So first off, the build is looking good! That black really pops.
I'm pretty sure I test drove this taco and was pissed when I couldn't buy it from Carmax in Roseville because the sales guy didn't realize it was a transfer. I ended up finding an 03 DC 4x4 at Hayes in Roseville and will be watching your build.

If you're in the Roseville/Sacramento area I'll keep an eye out and give you a wave!
