1999 Tacoma "build"

This build thread has become a mess of broken links and broken dreams. This is what the rag looks like now.

Thanks man! They were a pain to mount though. They rub on the brake caliper so you have to sand the back of each wheel down on the lips where the spokes are bent and continue taking more and more off until they rotate without hitting. It took me over two hours to get them all to clear it.

Yeah, the d-window wheels do that. The soft 8's wouldn't have.

Buy a can of adhesion promoter (cant spell) and a can of krylon gloss black and it will stick to chrome no problem. Do very light coats and apply about 7 total. Ive had mine on there for months and it still looks like I just painted it. Same goes with rear bumper.

Looks awesome dude! Always good to see a fellow '99 4x4 on here! WHat was the process you used for the headlights when you first got them? Sand them down and then a polishing compound?

Looks sweet dude!

Hey thanks everyone!

To answer the questions the window tint is 35% on the front two and limo over the factory tint on the rear glass. It is the perfect shade for me and it really not only looks good but helps keep the sun from being so annoying.

For the headlights I did what this guy did, along with some sanding with a fine grit sandpaper before buffing. They turned out pretty good.

that taco is looking great! I've got a black 2000 and I was thinking of doing the same kind of stuff to it. And you're right about those tires on there, makes it looks a ton better. That thing is gonna be a lot of fun.

Nice truck man, that thing looks sweet. What kind of paint did you use on your wheels, did you use flat or gloss paint on bumper and fender flares? And what size wheel spacers are you using?

Im currently using these wheels
http://www.truckmod.com/directpart.a...tnumber=428880

They are 15x8 and my tire size is 32. They are Bfg A/t and needless to say Im very impressed with them. They drive like a road tire and in mud they hold their own. When you are on sand or snow they really stand above any other tire Ive used.

Im running around 1.75 to 2 inch wheel spacers. Im not sure of the exact width and the guy I got them from said he thought 2 inches but wasnt sure. They really helped in bringing the tires out good and I think its one of my favorite things about the truck other than the wheels and tires.

I do still have the wheels were mounted on the truck. I also have the first factory set of wheels and tires that I will be selling soon. I may keep the m/t wheels as spares Im not sure at this point.

Thanks everyone!

The wheels came prepainted black. I used gloss on the bumpers and the fender flares were already pretty decent looking so I did not paint them. One trick is to get some tire shine GEL and one of those circular disk things that come with wax and you can apply that on your fender flares and on other plastics like mirrors and stuff and it makes them deep and shiney for a week or two.
