Bought the truck in June of 2010 a couple weeks before i finished Highschool for
$5000, with 174k Miles. Basically no mods what so ever , except Newer Trd Sport wheels which were on Bald Tires and a Rhino Bedliner.
1999 Tacoma Prerunner V6
Automatic, 2 Wheel Drive , Non Trd.
Here is what it looked like stock, the day i brought it home

First Mod was Stereo , Everything i bought was Budget prices and used. I got a Kenwood stereo, 800 watt amp, and a Jl Audio Sub 12" , I custom made a box for it to fit in the back inbetween the two seats, also as a arm rest.
Dont have pics right now, ill get some tomorow.

My next mod was Painting the wheels black, so i painted them using Duplicolor wheel paint satin Black.


Shortly after i added a lightbar on the front, which was a mistake i should have never got it.

A little after that i added , window tint, and rancho shocks with a 2.5" spacer lift up front. Yes all this on budget, $16 window tint precut off ebay installed by a friend. And the lift and shocks off craigs for $60 bucks installed myself. Sometime after aswell i added a Flowmaster 40 , for $40 bucks lol.

Then after that me and my friend built a tube bumper for myself which he designed off Solidworks, which came out to $70 or so in materials.



Some time passed and i needed tires badly, so i found a set of Eagle alloys wheels and Goodyear tires 265/75/16 with 80 percent tread for $380 off craigslist.


Added led lights for turn signals becuase the front bumper is gone,
Also got some Plasti Dip and covered the emblems and grill, I also added some cheap rancho shocks i got off craigslist too.

After some trips out offroading and in the desert knew i needed to redo the suspension. So i got a pair of Add a leafs off a member here for $20 bucks.

I knew i had to get better shocks , somehow i found some Fabtech "yes i know they suck but they are just as good as fox , etc" Shocks for up to about 3" of lift for $45 bucks off craigslist in Georgia, one needed to be rebuilt , so i bought them and rebuilt the shock. Which these are 2.25 nitrogen charged, huge 7/8" shaft.

Truck sat like a stinkbug , high in the rear for a little bit, about a month or so when i knew i had to do something to the front.
I searched and searched and found some Racerunner coilovers 2.0's on craigslist for $200 needing to be rebuilt, off a lady about 1 15 minutes away from me. So i took a drive down there which took 2 hours in traffic trying to get them before 4 o clock before the next potential buyer was going to get them, i got them and took them home and rebuilt them, the seller gave me a gallon of oil and seal kit.

And cranked them up to about 3"

Next, i got some Hella 500ff', and converted them to Hid. I knew i wanted to get fiberglass , for my future Long travel. So i got some Glassworks 3.5" fenders for $140 , and running some 1.5" wheel spacers. And added a dust light. Also added cheap air horns, Deckplate mod.

As far as Maintence parts added, I have added new oxygen sensor, timing belt, water pump, thermostat, tranny mount, carrier bearing, air filter, two core radiator,
And recently installed Total Chaos Steering rack bushings.

I think i have about a little over $4000 into it now.
Thats it for now. Thanks for looking.
