Taylor's Taco

Hey everyone! I finally figured I'd done enough to my truck to justify a build thread!

I got it in October of 2012 with 123k on the ODO. Bone stock.

How she sits as of 1/18/14



And 4/5/14



Mod List:
Kenwood double din headunit
650W pioneer amp
10 inch MTX Jackhammer sub
Playstation 2 mounted under rear passenger seat
TRD seatbelt covers
Uniden 520 CB in ashtray location
Wilson 100 5 foot antenna
Magnaflow 18" Muffler
Painted skids
Grey wire mod
Aluminum Husky Toolbox
Plastidipped badges
Diff breather extension
"Blue" gauge lights
Deckplate mod
4xInnovations rock sliders
Ultragauge mounted on windshield
PA speaker mounted in grill
Optima gold top




How it all started. Little red AKA Consuella!



She met her demise.




Enter: Consuella V2
How she sat when I got her to replace my wrecked 96 5 lug.





Added my old toolbox from my old Taco. Ratchet strapped in because I wasn't drilling holes for that POS. Painted my skid plate and got better tires. BFG Rugged Terrains. Much better than Rugged Trails.



Added extra badges





Got a Husky toolbox and of course I've collected stickers over time.



Repainted my bed rails and my buddy's Celica's interior



Magnaflow 18 inch



TRD Seatbelt cushions



Rear tire carrier recall and repainted spare wheel



Grey wire mod



Painted fuel tank skid



Kenwood Double din touchscreen head unit (Playing Crazy Taxi on my PS2)



Pioneer amp and dremel charger ran off an inverter from the cigarette lighter



12 inch Sub



Playstation 2 under the rear seat



Got blue bulbs for my dash, but they didn't turn out blue. Oh well, at least I can see my dash for the first time since I got the truck!



Ultragauge and Uniden CB in the ashtray slot



4 foot fiberglass antenna



Had to make my own bends in the Antenna mount I got since it didn't fit right



Also a PA speaker behind my bumper hooked up to my CB. Inspired by BackWoodsTaco

Slider from 4xInnovations painted and ready to be welded on



Upgraded to a Wilson 1000 with a 5 foot whip. Much much much better.



BABY FLEXIN



Shoe creek run! Travis (NewRider) did my diff breather mod while we were there,







The run finished off my leaves. They're completely negative now. More reason to work hard to buy my new lift parts!



Upcoming

Bilstein 5100s
Allpro leaves
dual batteries
aux fuse block
15x8 wheels
33x12.5x15 tires
tube bumpers
tire carrier
Better skids
diff drop

I know. I'm trying to fix and add stuff, but my computer is broken so I'm using this crappy old one I have and it's awful.

Rebent the mount for my antenna and added a ground to the frame beside the battery. I also recoiled the extra coaxial into a figure 8 shape instead of a circle and that cleared up almost all of the static and my reception is VERY good.

I'm happy with that, but not the holes I've drilled. I've got about 5 extra holes under my hood now and it looks shitty. Any suggestions on filling them?

Upgraded to a Wilson 1000 with a 5 foot whip. Much much much better. I'll tune it tomorrow.

The wind was gusting rather well, hence the antenna bending.

Took off those extra badges on the tailgate.

Also changed my rear diff and T case fluids. We'll see if it drives any different!

Tacked up the sliders today! Didn't do serious welding because my uncle's welder wasn't laying good enough beads. I may need to end up paying someone... Oh well.



After that, I came home to a package...



oh yes. I'll be wiring this up to the spare channel on my amp. If anyone knows of a way to have this speaker toggle on and off when I want it to, let me know!

Time to roll around campus being obnoxious. This combined with my CB PA speaker should make i easy.

Second PA is wired up! I have a video on my instagram. It's really clear considering how loud it gets. I can just leave my windows down to let my sub fill out the lows. White is for my headunit, the black is connected to my CB. Both are just ziptied in.

Deckplate mod = done! Who cares if it's -2 degrees outside? NEVER A BREAK FROM MODS!

Pretty sure I blew the large white PA speaker hooked up to my headunit. Will check tomorrow. Might try to clean up some of the mess of wires tomorrow too.

Haven't got the sliders on yet. The welder we were using was laying good beads, so I'm looking for someone to put them on for me.

Deckplate first impressions : LOVE IT. Make the exhaust sound much throatier and deeper. I don't buy into the "huge HP gains" people claim, but it sounds sick and gave me something to do today.

And yeah. I have the speaker hooked into the right channel on my amp, my sub is on the left.

The way I turn it on and "off" is I just use my headunit controls to change the frequency crossover to where the output to the amp is 100hz and below. The sub plays those frequencies fine, but the PA can't play them at all, so nothing comes out. When I want to cut it on, I just change the crossover for the amp to "through" which plays all frequencies and it plays.

I had a buddy with me and turned the amp's bass boost to 12, had my headunit running bassboost with the lows all the way up and the loudness on.

Didn't think and turned on the PA and I guess I blew it. Not sure, honestly. It's super cold here so I didn't check too far into it.

I hope I didn't blow it, because it's going to be a bitch to take out.

BABY FLEXIN



Woke up to a leaking upper radiator hose. Can't believe Toyota red coolant is $30 a gallon?!?!?



Organized some wires today!



Finally ran my amp wires under the carpet so I could turn it sideways. Now I don't have wires all over the place.



Moved my CB mic mount. Looks cleaner.



My exhaust now with the deckplate mod.

18 inch magnaflow.

With the PA that would suck if it blew. BTW Those new pictures look sick!

Thanks!

I found that it was full of ice. I might let it sit and drain out more and see, but I'm sure it's blown.

Put my sliders on last night!



This guy's shop was huge! A corvair, 2 studebakers, a two of bikes, and old Ford pickup he was restoring, an MG, a mustang an Amphicar, a Model A and a few others. This guy is where I want to be.

Only picture I have so far.



Left early this morning and now I'm back at JMU. Sadly, this means the modding will slow down a bit now.
