Since I finally had enough mods on the truck I thought I'd start a build.
Sorry for the big pics Tapatalk is sort of dumb like that
If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask
First wheeling video!
How it currently sits with ~134k miles
The earliest pic I have of when I bought it
My original goal was to get rid of all chrome eventually. Well not even a year later all but the exhaust is blacked out
Here's some specs:
2000 Tacoma TRD 4x4
I bought it July of 2013 with ~128k miles from a member on here for a pretty good deal, nothing wrong with it except some bald tires and some surface rust.
Billies 5100s up front
AAL in the rear
Toytec Diff Drop
Retrofit H1 Mini
Blacked out Gatling Gun shroud with halos
Cobra CB with Uniden speaker
Viper alarm system (damn thing is annoying sometimes )
Wheels and Tires:
First: Weld Scorpio 15x8 wheels with BFG A/T 32x10.5r15
Second: Pro-Comp 7069 16x8 with Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac 265/75r16
BAMF antenna mount
2nd gen black emblems
Plasti-dipped front and back bumpers
Dipped door handles
Custom Satoshi grille with TRD emblem
CBI Ditch Brackets
At the gym and saw some Toyotas so I joined the party
First official mod TRD emblem, gotta love Amazon
Sold the camper, kinda wish I hadn't but I need new tires
It was raining so my bulldog need some shelter
Did some small flexing in the back of my neighborhood haha
Then I found a nice short trail on the other side of my neighbor hood
Georgia got some snow which was weird but hey I got some TITS
Some more TITS on that trail
Went on my first wheeling trip! Meet some great guys from TW there, had lots of fun
Here's some of the guys, Cam (ChamYota), Zac (Xaqori), Israel and Tyler (Gabassman)
Chris (Iceman2448) and Greg (Meatman) came later but I didn't snag a pic
And this is what happens when you bring an Isuzu Trooper to a Tacoma meet
Cleaned up the truck and the sunset looked awesome so I snapped a pic
Finally got warm enough to paint some shit, so I bought some 2nd ten emblems (they look so much better than 1st gen)
I'll grab some pics of the tailgate it turned out pretty good!
Finally had enough cash to get my new rims and tires! Pro-Comp 7069 with Wrangler Duratrac 265's
Now that I had that out of the way, I needed to get rid of that shitty spacer lift that the PO had put on…..
Got some billie 5100s and toytec coils from a member for a pretty good deal, brand new too!
Damn things are beefy as hell!!
From my first wheeling trip I figured out I needed some stuff, like better tires, cb radio and better suspension
It was a great month of modding for me
Here is my CB and antenna setup (you can sort of see my 2nd gen emblem setup here) and my TW sticker
And so began the suspension!
Coils and struts put together, looks so sick with the matching silver like they were made for each other
All mounted up, aint it beautiful?
Stupid HID kit kept going out on me so I said f#$k it and jumped on the TRS group buy.
Awesome company with great customer service!
Getting em all mounted up, damn things are bright as hell!
Just my halos on, shitty iPhone pics don't do these justice!
Again shitty cell pics, I need a real camera haha
Went on another TW meet! This one was a lot more fun because I knew what to do and had the right equipment this time
Stare down with Zacs truck (Xaqori)
The only group shot I snagged the whole weekend, Chris (Iceman2448), Kevin, and Tyler (Gabassman) (the few of the guys I can remember)
Pic courtesy of Chris (Iceman2448) wished my halos were on
And then Isreal did this same guy with the Isuzu Trooper
My future mods (hopefully):
Armor: Sliders, front and rear bumpers (plate or tube not sure yet), custom skids
Exterior: Tool box, front emblem, lights, bed rack with RTT, wheel spacers, engine bay lights, Tundra Brake Mod, Stainless steel brake lines, diff breather mod
Suspension: New leaf pack, rear shocks (with resi ), new UCA and Coilovers (with resi )
