LSC's 95 Tacoma Build

After being on here for over a year and figuring which way I wanted to take my truck, I'm finally making a build thread of my Black 1995 Toyota Tacoma LX Extended Cab 4x4. Bought it in January 2012 with 234,000 miles on the body. Previous owner put in an engine from 2010 Tacoma with approx. 24,000 miles.

When I first joined, Blackdawg's build was the inspiration for mine. And with the help of Michael (bellassaiw10) and some other local TW members on some of my mods, here is my build.

Current Pic:













Vehicle Spec:
1995 Toyota Tacoma LX Ext. Cab
2.7L 4cyl. Engine
Automatic Transmission
4WD

Current Mods:

Suspension/lift/steering:
Eibach/Bilstein 5100s up front
Bilstein 5125 Rear Shocks with 9" of travel
Rear OMD Spring Mod
Toytec 1" Diff. Drop

Armour:
Relentless Fabrication DIY Front Plate Bumper

Electronics/Lighting:
Morimoto H1 Retrofit w/ Blue Demon Eye
UltraGauge
Sony CD Player
LED Gauge Swap
Smokes LED Tail lights
Cobra CB w/ PA speaker
LED License Plate lights

Tires/Wheels/Brakes:
16x7.5 Toyota FJ Trail Team Editions
285/75/16 BFG KM2s
1.5" SpiderTrax Wheel Spacers
EBC Brakes

Exhaust:
Flowmaster 40 Series Dual Exhaust
3.5" Chrome Tips

Misc.:
5% Tint all the way around
40% Windshield with 5% brow
Derped 2nd Gen Badges
Low-Profile Toolbox
Removed Pinstriping
K&N air filter


Future Mods (somewhat in order):
Blinkers to corner lights
Rampage LEDs for Bumper
Winch
Wet Okles
Kenwood Double Din
Regear
Sliders
Rear Plate Bumper
Light Bar
Rock Lights
UCA's
Skids
Line-x Bed
Possible V6 Swap
Possible Transmissin Swap to Stick

Closest to Stock Pic I have





First thing I did was put a new catalytic converter, new brake pads, plugs and wires, etc. Drove it stock for a good while

New wheels and tires - Bullet holes w/ 31x10.50 Cooper AT3s





Cleaned and shined her real good



1st real mod - Flowmaster 40 series w/ 3.5" tips (sounds great)


Next was window tint




Then I threw on some Bilstein 5100s set to top setting



Another new set of wheels and tires - 15x8 Pacers w/ 32x11.50 BFGs (1.5" wheel spacers)




Then added some flares from bellassaiw10





Found out I needed to get some new leafs soon



Next mod was some 10k HIDs in new housings and removed pinstripe




Drove it like this for a few months and toted my dog around and took it on some wheeling trips







Next thing I did was put some Derped 2nd Gen badges on from another member and put a new rear bumper on. Also cut exhaust after muffler





Picked up some new lights



Got my first set of retros in with Michael's help










Then the derp bug hit me (front end and door handles)







Few random pics with an epic mud adventure where she got stuck for the first time










Then I finally got my lift together - Eibachs and OMD Springs. With the help of Paul (Backwoods Taco) and his shop, I was able to get it on













Put some rear mudflaps on








Doin a little flexin for a picture challenge




Re-routed exhaust




Saw this and made me start thinkin










Then threw on some Smoked LED Tails and had a few snow days at ECU











Then I had to take tint off for inspection. Right after it, I re-tinted and tinted the windshield 40% with 5% brow




Then I changed the wheels and tires yet again. This time I went with FJ Trail Teams w/ 285/75/16 BFG KM2s




Also Derped the hood








Then I finally pulled the trigger on a plate bumper. Went with a Relentless Fabrication DIY Kit. Great product and worth the money









I love the way my truck looks, it's came a long way! Thanks for looking at my build and don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have. Have plans for mods in the near future so check in to see my rig

They still look good man. Just make sure you spray up inside of the handle real good

Good to hear. I am doing a complete dechrome. I will do them when I do the mirrors and badges. I already did the front end. I wonder how the rear bumper will wear.

Nice work on the bumper. It looks like you bought it ready made.

Every time I do something I tell myself to take pictures of the progress so I could start a build thread but I get so caught up in doing what I'm doing that I never take the damn pics.

I completely understand. I wanted a build thread for the longest time but dreaded taking the time to piece it all together
