Pyros Mid-Travel Trail Rig

Heres Pyro's red taco build. I havent done much in the last few years to my truck, but the last few weeks, Ive been modding the crap outta my taco. At least with what I can afford. Trying to do things to it every day or so. Afterall.... your never REALLY done modding and doing work to your truck right?


LIST OF MODS:
Mid Travel Icon Coilovers, Camburg UCA w/uniball
Flowmaster Single in Dual out and dumped (super loud)
Big Foot All Terrains
KNN Intake Filter
Hella 500s
Aftermarket Grill
Procomp 9000 rear
Pioneer DEH-X4600BT
CB Radio - Uniden PRO 520XL (With PA System )
4' Fiberglass CB antenna
Custom sheet metal protection inside rear fenders for snow chains
1000 watt amp with 12" sub





WISH LIST:
Front Hybrid (with winch) or Baja Bumper
Rear Tube Bumper
HID conversion kit for hella 500s & stock lights.
New wheels.
New tint.




This is how she stands now... Normally I am against chrome on trucks, but I think it looks decent on my taco. Might black it all out later.






Heres what she used to look like. This is what she looked like all stock.




Icon Coilovers and Camburg arms (Mid Travel kit)


Procomp 9000's. To be honest, the rebound is way to poppy for me. I wanna change this pretty soon.




Big Foot tires (new tread) I used to have BFG All terrains, but couldnt afford them brand new this time. However, I found out these tires are pretty dope. Also, pray painted the wheels. They hold up pretty good



Grill and lights


Gotta rep all of the downhill mountain bikers. BRAAAPPPP!!!



This thread is super new. So as i find old pictures, and start to add more stuff Ill add them on here. I know I have some good photos around somewhere.

Had to make a custom insert for my rear fender. When I was running chains, it was tearing everything up. I havent tried it like this, but seems logical that itll work nicely.





Got a few extra Gas cans for some long trips. Hopefully will do something the next upcoming months so I can use them




Cracked my touchscreen radio... It worked great for a few years, but the touch screen stopped working... after a desperate act... I cracked it. I will probably buy a new radio later on today and install that.




A LOT going on right now with the truck...

Yea man, I am really digging the racks you make. Just learned how to weld yesterday so going to buy raw materials soon. Figured it's better to make a rack on my first dab project then a baja bumper lol

Aw man it was a tragedy... My touch screen only worked for a few years then slowly stopped working. I got pissed and hit it one day. Now the whole screen is jacked. The screen doesn't work at all, and after I disconnected the battery, now it's stuck in the installation mode lol. No music or anything and it's horrible!

nope, i just kept smacking it for the last year lol... prolly should have taken it apart. The touch screen was so unpredictable. Besides this new one I just picked up has a lot more bells and whistles. Just isnt touch screen.

Some punk jacked my spare tire from under my truck... If anyone has a donut with a cheap tire on it, I'm interested.

Working on installing the fm radio and cb today. Then drawing plans for bed rack.

Went ahead and bought the materials to build the bed rack.. Most likely will put a tire carrier on it too.



Picked up a spare tire cheap. It has all the knobs on it still Got lucky there.




Doing lots and lots of stuff today....

Started the cutting and design for the bed rack I'm building. Hopefully, I'll will get a ton done tonight.



I got some awesome ideas for this rack.

Never realized how long it takes to build and weld something.. This what I've done so far for the rack. It's my first time welding so been making lots of mistakes and whatnot. Everything for the tip part of the rack is tacked on there.
