TACOMABOSS's build
 
My parents bought me this truck in June of 2011 bone stock. Im the 3rd owner. Bought it with 131,xxx miles on it.There was a lot of stuff missing that I replaced and I think i got it all. For instance, front mud flaps were missing (that I ended up taking off anyway :o), window latch, the antenna nut/ bushing, and a lot of other miscellaneous stuff. Also, changed the timing belt, water pump, radiator hoses, thermostat, and flushed the radiator. The previous owner got new carpet for it but didnt cut the holes out for the storage in the back, so I fixed that. The original owner removed a leaf from the leaf pack :facepalm: to "make it ride better". Sorry for the cell phone pics, thats basically all I have. I will upload more pics once I find them.

How it looks today:

My first mod was the new seat covers. I got Sportsman Camo Covers in Realtree AP and I would recomend them to anyone. Great product.

It stayed stock until September of 2011. It still had stock shocks and I wanted a lift and new meats. Ordered Bilstein 5100's for all four corners from DSM, Toytec 2" AAL and new bushing kit for the front struts from Toytec, and Cooper Discoverer STT 32x11.5x15 tires from a local tires shop. Also wanted black rims so I got some flat black spray paint and painted them.

Went camping with my girlfriend and realised I needed a camper shell but could not afford one, so I made one out of PVC and a tarp:

I originally wanted a CAI but decided against it and did the deckplate mod instead. I also capped off the silencers. Im pretty happy with it:

Then I decided that my stock headlights suck so I ordered some Hella 500's and mounted them on my bumper:

My dad had some chains from his truck that I found fit my tires so I will be using those in the winter:

My truck will never be "done" it will evolve. I will always be making changes or adding to it.

How is the black paint holding on to the wheels BOSS?
Is it chipping? Did you sand the rims before spraying them?

Nice looking truck by the way. Keep it up,
Cheers

I know enough to have designed a hooligan bar in solidworks, and then made one out of wood. There's a video of it somewhere on YouTube. I don't think I could figure out how to use those programs like you did here, I would end up drawing it out by hand haha.

If I could just make mine look like yours did stock, I'd be happy.

Also, where did you get the back window latch? Mine's broken.
