Cooks 2000 4x4 build plus BS thread

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!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zBR...csrbMb1u1UkPAw

12/22/14



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


V6, 5-speed


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.



Suspension:

Billies 5100s up front

Eibach/Toytec coils

AAL in the rear

Toytec Diff Drop




Mechanical:

Volant Intake

Magnaflow exhaust



Lighting:

Retrofit H1 Mini

Blacked out Gatling Gun shroud with halos




Interior:

LED's everywhere

JVC head-unit

JVC speakers

Sub-woofer

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




Exterior:

Firestik antenna

BAMF antenna mount

2nd gen black emblems

Plasti-dipped front and back bumpers

Dipped door handles

Custom Satoshi grille with TRD emblem







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!







Zombie truck.







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







#TacomaWorld







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 )

Went camping this past weekend up at Tray Mountain.

Didn't see too many people up there but it was a good time



Sitting in the field



Headed down the mountain in the rock garden



And our setup

Haven't done anything recently, saving up for some sliders.

But my air unit has been making a funny sound (and blows out dust a little) since my last camping trip. I think some dirt got in there some how. It looks (from the maintenance book) that its a lot of work just to get to the blower unit. So I haven't checked it yet

The antenna would be perfect. Their website doesn't have a good shot of it. I'd like to see it w/the tailgate open. Also, how are you running your coaxial cable to the antenna? As for the cb, I have a general idea how to mount it. Thank man, much appreciated.

There is a grommet in the storage compartment behind the driver, I just slit that open and shoved the wire through then up my taillight

Cool man, did you have to drill new holes or use the existing holesfor the mount? It looks like you're using the stock holes foe the latch. Is that correct? Thanks for the info and pics, greatly appreciate it.

Yea there was no drilling at all (except to keep the antenna from grounding out, we made the antenna hole bigger and threw in a rubber washer) BAMF makes a great product for this. Just have to paint it and that's it
