Start of first build 02 trd v6

Well first of all i would like to say thank you to everyone who has helped me pick out the many different items I am planning on getting. A special thank Box Rocket! You have helped a ton.
I am 17 and a junior in High School and this truck was my first vehicle and hopefully the one I have forever. I will post some pics down at the bottom. My truck is a 2002 tacoma xtracab trd v6. She has about 151k on her and is still purring like the first time I heard her.
I would like to explain why the back end is the way it is. The winter I got my truck my parents ask if they could barrow to go to the airport because it had been pretty crappy day and they didn't want to take the car. I said yes. Well while they were driving there doing about 70 down the highway they hit some ice and spun out. Slamming into the guard rail and really screwing the truck up. The insurance company totaled it. I am sorry but I don't have any pics of the truck when it happened but if you look at the back thats the part that hit second. The front end took most the hit. Lucky my brush I had put on there saved the headlight and the mechanic who fixed it said if it wasnt for the tow package he is sure the frame would have bent but there was about 3500 worth of damage to the front which they willing paid. Well they decided that I would have to pay for the back end. It has now been 2 years and I finally got a good job going so I am getting enough money to fix.
Here how she looks at the moment.
Mods to come!
Gray Mod
OME 883 coils with nitrocharge shocks
OME rear leaf packs with add a leaf and nitrocharge shocks
Trd r17 wheels
Complete cat back system
Rock Sliders
All Pro apex plate bumper

Custom made rear bumper
265/85/r17 goodyear duratracs
Possible locking front diff and on board air compressor
I am sure more to come but these are what I am thinking right now.
Thanks for looking!

I know super pumped! Curious to see how the stock front coils and shocks take the extra 139 pounds from the bumper and 79 from the skids. She might be sitting a little low tell I can afford the lift
