Here's some pictures from the day I picked it up, 1/4/14. Got it for a good deal from a local guy that only used it for hunting. 181k miles.

Where did get the Tundra calipers?

Also...I was a bit confused for a while. You had the green truck, then a 4runner and now this truck.

How come you got rid of the green xtracab?

Gonna sub this build!

Tundra calipers were from a local junkyard.

Yeah, sold both the green taco and green 4runner. I wanted a manual so I decided to sell the truck. Then I uncovered holes in the frame on the 4runner so I decided it would be unsafe to build.


More pictures!

The supercharger works!



I have a few little issues to work through... Re-bleed the brakes, figure out why I get a CEL for the air fuel sensor now, and tee off a vacuum line for my cruise control.

After a couple days of driving with the new mods, I already pissed off the neighbors. The truck is loud! I like it, but I scared a couple old ladies getting in their car. Oh well!

The supercharger is awesome! Boost kicks in pretty well around 2k. It's very noticeable.

I re-bled the brakes tonight and fixed the soft pedal. Now it brakes well. Also took care of the check engine light with a new air fuel ratio sensor.

The FX-R retrofits are in with the help of Alex, along with the Fiolo built satoshi grille.












Also snagged a couple light bars!
