Sliders bedlined:


Got some racks put on the cab of the truck:


Got a set of Toytec adjustable shackles today and Installed:


The install:






Here some pics with the toytec adjustable shackles installed Wednesday:






Finally got my front back to normal you can say. before when i had the lift its almost been a year i had them set at the top setting on the shock. this is why my CV axles and UCAs was at that steep of angles. so i took it to a local tire shop and the guy helped me put them back down to the stock setting and what a difference!!! Also just got it aligned yesterday at a local alignment shop. the truck drives so much better now. I'll try to get some pics up tmrw now the shackles are installed.
Heres the pics as of 8/15/13:




WOOT WOOT!!!!!!!
Bought this ARB bumper off a guy who had same model tacoma that works at the local autozone. I went in to get the extinguisher for the truck and he ask where i was going to mount it and told him a Tacoma. to get to the point he was selling it so i told him i'll take er.


Also Put a fire extinguisher in the cab of the truck. Its mounted on the driver side panel between the front and rear doors:


Got my bumper put on Friday of this week and got around to snag a few pics of it mounted up and everything. I am thinking though i am going to paint it again for it being a used bumper and all. but the guy that had it before me looks like he took decent care of it. could not pass up the UNREAL DEAL i got it for. Would u guys repaint it or not? what size winch and the best one? thinkin about gettin one but dont know yet. I'll get a pic with the entire truck later on.











Got to to some flexing with the truck. thought yall might want to see how it done:










Think this is one of the best pics!!!!

How it's done? You need a forklift or RTI ramp to see how it's done. Not a 6" pile of rock or two concrete steps.

Nathan's 02 Build

Some updates I been meaning to get posted. Got my sliders welded on the other day by a local fab guy that I know.









Did some testing with the hi-lift. Mine is only the 48" and done really good IMO.






Also decided to test out the ARB bumper too!! Done great was impressed at what the hi-lift can do.



Sanded down the bumper to repaint it:




Ordered me an Ultragauge Monday, hope it will be here soon so I can install it. Liked it a lot better than the scangauge IMO. I sanded down the skid plate and painted it red. Now I am anxious to see how it is going to look on the truck. I'll get some more pics up of the skid and it installed too. Going to order me some retros for bday soon and cant wait to order them and install. everyone else's I saw are AWESOME. So cant wait to get retros. Woot Woot!!!

Got my skid plate installed today!!





Had to make some homemade brackets out of a piece of aluminum that was laying around to blot the skid and then to the frame:



Bolted the front with some bolts from the hardware store right to the bumper. Their was 3 holes all ready their and just lined everything up and bolted to it.



Crappy cell pic but it will do. If u look hard enough u can see a gap between the skid I painted red and the other part of the skid in black. bolt holes would not line up when it was attached to the other part of the skid. Everything though worked good and looks good IMO.

Got this 6,000lb BadLand Winch yesterday. I was really thinking about going with a Warn winch but them things are up their in price. So I went down to Harbor Freight and found this winch which was on clearance and thought it was a good deal IMO. I went to wire it up to make sure everything worked on it and it did!!!! Now I just got to get the winch mounted. I'll get some moree pics after the install.


Here's what all came in it:



Here's some pics of the undercoating on the truck:

Berfore:








Crappy cell pic:


After Pics:
you can see how much darker and cleaner it looks.




Wanted to get more pics of after I got done but was getting darker.

Pic of my shrouds Painted inside and out:

Hey Nathan do you have the AAL on your dakars? After you added the shackles it gave you a little rake, which is perfect IMO. Anyway, I have my shackles set at the 1" mark and I'm sitting level. I need that rake for towing so I'm gonna bump the shackles up to the 1.5" mark. I was wondering if you had the D6XL AAL because with the hard shell your maintaining a nice rake. All I have on/ in the bed is the softopper (30#'s maybe) and a set of tools (also 30#'s roughly). I can't figure out why I'm sitting level after adding roughly 3.25" of rear lift (2.25"dakars + 1" shackles) paired with 3" eibach springs up front. I should have maintained the factory rake or a little more since I've added more overall lift on the rear. When you get a chance could you let me know your height numbers from middle of hub to fender? Thanks!

i dont think ive seen anyone paint the light shroud before.

how much difference does it make with just your regular night lights on?

It's the black headlight mod (BHLM). I did mine the same way and the light output is very good because I have projectors. I'm not sure how regular stock lights would do in reflective-less shrouds?

Truck looks so much better with the ARB bumper. Let see the Badlands winch installed. Pretty good winch actually. Only downsides are they are heavy and slow line speed, but the are better than the Smittybuilt winches that a lot of people run.

Thanks Adam appreciate it man. I could not pass up the offer i got the bumper for it was a STEAL what I paid for it so had to get it then. I like u i want to get the winch on their but i have to make a plate and brackets out of steal to mount the winch on. hopin soon to get it on i'll let u know when i do and post pics. I thought the winch would be a good one to go with. haven't heard of a lot of people with these type of winches. it seems to be a good winch so far since i just hook everything up to make sure it worked.

Thanks guys I have seen people doing it to their Tacomas when they do the retro fit. Like Moe was saying it looks awesome with the projectors but IDK how it would work with regular light output with them painted black. probably would look good but the output though. Definitely i am going to post pics when they r installed. Cant wait for them to get here. the were shipped yesterday 10/1/13 so hopen from Atlanta to NC want be that long and will get here at the end of week.
