Pioneer Deck/door speakers
I had this deck in my Ford Ranger so I moved it to the taco. The stock speakers were garbage so I picked up some pioneers from best buy. I installed the speakers when I redid the doors. (Read below)





Replaced my double 8" subs with a 10" Rockford P1


First Lift
Added new rear shocks and put on 2" blocks in the back with longer U bolts. To level the front I used 3" front spacers from ebay. The spacers were just temporary until I found the money for coilovers.




KYB Monomax Rear Shocks

Seperating the UCA from the ball joint proved to be quite difficult. I ended up replacing the stock ball joints because the ball joint seperator "pickle bar" mangled the rubber.


Before:


After:


Flowmaster
My buddy gave me his old flowmaster muffler off of his rock crawler jeep cherokee! It had some rock scrapes and dings but nothing that affects performance. I decided to add a turn down just before the rear axel to maximize clearance and sound. Haven't had a chance to weld it on yet, so it's just clamped for now.




Siren
Just for fun, Trent (tdoling12) and I installed a police siren under the truck. The button came out looking very nice and the siren itself is very hidden under the truck.



Camo Interior
If you have done this or want to, check out my custom interior thread!
http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/det...-interior.html



Tacoma Beast Development Stickers
Picked up some TBD stickers from http://tacomabeast.com/



CBI Ditch Light Brackets + Rigid Dually Flood
I decided to go with the CBI brackets because they kept the dually’s out of my immediate vision. I did have to cut the plastic cowling to make them fit but they turned out pretty nice. Wiring them up was very easy.


Inside View:

They clear the antenna but not by much.

Before:

After:


Camburg Upper Control Arms
I had a pretty bad alignment issue that I thought I could correct by getting new UCA’s. I went with Camburg Uniballs that I would suggest to anyone just because of how amazing it is to never have to mess with ball joints again!
Goodbye balljoints. I hate you.



Red Brake Calipers



Camburg Sway away Coilovers
I wanted to stick with Camburg because I like the company and matching is always good! ☺ They are set to 3” and are no comparison to stock. They gave me another 1.5” of front lift!



^The stock bushing was completely shot.

^Went from 7.5" to 9" of tire to fender clearance.

CB Radio + Firestik
I installed the cobra 19 in the common ashtray spot and mounted a 3’ firestik to the side of my toolbox. I also put a PA speaker under my hood and I use that more than I probably should.

Plastidip Errrything!
I started with my emblems when I got the truck. I ruined the look of my wheels when I drove through nasty salt dirt shit at the salton sea, so I figured plastidipping them was a good temporary cover up…But then all the chrome looked out of place so I did my fender flares, front and rear bumpers, and my grille. It gave the truck a completely new look!




42” Lightbar
I decided to go cheap and get a lightbar from ebay because when comparing the output and rating to lightbars that were hundreds of $$$ more, I found they were usually the same if not a even little better (Obviously not better than Rigids or bars of that quality) I paid $130 for the lightbar and picked up brackets from All Four OffRoad in SoCal.




Removed Mudflaps
I don't know why I didn't do this the day I got my truck but I am really glad they are finally gone.

Rock Lights
Picked up some rock lights from All 4 Off Road and got them all hooked up.

All Pro Front Tube Bumper
I finally decided it was time for a new bumper. I originally liked the look of the Apex bumper from all pro but the tube bumper has grown on me a lot.


9,000 lb. Winch
Yes, i went with a cheap winch, but so far so good. #brokecollegekidprobz



All Pro 80” Rock Sliders
I have been planning on getting these since I first got the truck but never really needed them until I moved back to Oregon and started crawling around on trees and rocks. I got them for 15% off thanks to an All Pro promo deal. Powdercoated them "Baja Black"

Hey man sweet build, make sure you get a right angle drill or something similar if your planning on bolting the sliders on. Just got done putting the All-Pro sliders on today and they were a pain in the ass so say the least haha

I added a few Ken Block stickers to boost HP and figured it was time to get rid of the stripe. After I put on the "Hooningan" and "Just Aint Care" stickers on, the stripe made it look too cluttered.

Before:


After:


The truck needed a little bit of rice so I put some red leds in the footspaces.


Just realized that the stock skid plate will not fit with the All Pro bumper so I ordered the All Pro Skid plate combo as well.
