Update

Went to URE, a while back:







Plastidipped my grill





Hit 200k:



Got a Softtopper:





4wd Conversion is complete, tested it out today, already broke a cv axle glad I have Manual hubs!































4wd conversion: Picked up another transmission yesterday, and today I worked on cleaning up my driveshafts, and greased them and replaced a few grease fittings. Then I painted my 4wd center console, turned out pretty good!





Locked and Lifted Prerunner





Update: Installed Powertrax No-slip locker!!! And Bilstein 5100s at 2.5" front and greaseable shackle and 5100s in the rear.







In URE Wheeling, you can see my m/t tires and my budbuilt skids

Figured id start one. I bought it December 5th of 2008, with 116,405 miles on her (dont know why i remember that??). She is a 2001 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner 4 cyl 2.7 L. Automatic. With crank windows and no power locks, and no Cruise Control.

A few days after i got it. dont think it has been that clean since.

First mod was a Few Stickers

Second mod was a Westin Bull Bar, A Christmas present from my dad and mom.

Christmas Morning we installed it, me and my dad

Then i installed the CB radio

and the 102" whip

Sometime in there i installed some lights on my Bull bar, Just cheap lights

O and the Rebel Flag plate

Then i painted my rims graphite.


My buddy helped me paint them.

O and i did the dent in the bumper mod too ahahaha

My most recent mod Uws Toolbox


and you can see my stickers +15 hp a piece

I need to install my 102" whip on the toolbox but i just havent got around to it.



Future mods
Powertrax Locker Just order this yesterday.
Sliders
Coilovers
AAL
4WD conversion someday.......hopefully

Cool truck!!!! Welcome to the club of no power anything!!! HAHA!! Im about to get some 16'' rims off a 09 tacoma this Sunday. I thought about painting my stock rims but Im just not good at painting stuff and talked myself out of it. What size tires do you have? Because I know my 265/75/15's are like trying to turn blocks on my 4banger. I have this issue of I want big tires but dont like the lack of power that comes with the 2.7l.

They are easy to paint, its not hard. I have 265/70/r16. I want some 265/75/r16, but they are so dang expensive.
