Ryan's 2000 build
Currently 1/19/14
I finally got around to up dating my build. Thought I would include some pics of previous vehicles that I learned from over the years as well. first vehicle I ever owned was a 95 yj that I first learned to wrench on.
I then sold it to buy a 1999 Tacoma.

I had it for about 2 years and did a lot of worthless things to it: train horns, hids, bed liner, leds... basically this was when I was in high school and had a problem with doing stupid s#it.

I sold that truck and decided to start over and build something the right way. bought a
2000 tacoma. 2.7L with, 3 inch lift and rear AAL's. mickey thompson sidebiters, 31 inch mudstars, and 6000k HIDs.

Current Mods.

-TB spacer
-optima battery
-regeared to 4.56s
-mini header mod

-3 inch revtech lift and aal

Tires and wheels
-33 12.50 15 souper swamper tsl's on Mickey Thompson side biters

-high flow cat with single chamber flow sound muff dumped over rear axle with 4 inch tip

-herculined bed and rockers
-tractor supply tool chest
-ARB front bumper and custom rear bumper
-halo head lights
-billet grill
-4 inch lights behind grill
-front and rear diff breather extensions
-led rock lights

-05 FJ seat swap
-tinted wind shield and windows
-marine radio
-kicker door speakers and subs
-500w alpine amp
-coozie mod
-Hurst shifter

The day I bought it


i replaced the stock exhaust with a glass pack, and i relocated the exit spot with a 3.5 insh stainless tip.
sprayed in a bedliner. i also sprayed the tool box and fender flares.
i herculined the bottom of the rocker panels, tinted all the windows including windshield(40%). the bumper is one me and a friend fabbed up.
bought some new 32 inch cooper STTs and smoked out the tail lights
just put in some halos and stock bumper with a brushguard last night.
the 01 tacoma is another tacoma world member ^

Trip I took to lake douglas

My exhaust manifold cracked so I bought a used mini header for 70$
Bought a camper cover for it
Made a rear bumper
Redid the exhaust and added front and rear diff breathers
Put on a CAI, throttle body spacer, and did front and rear diff breathers
I made a front bumper, not the best looking but it was pretty strong IMO
Put in some 05 fj seats with lumbar support!
Kicker 10 inch sub
Tool Chest
made a switch panel for my rock lights
picked up some tsl's and only have 200$ in them
traded my bumper I made for this ARB...
This summer I plan on redoing the suspension, making a different rear bumper, and making new skids.

future plans...
- tubbing for 35's
-flat bed
-Regear to 4.88's

Looks really good so far! I like what you did with the herculiner and lining the tool box. I plan on doing something like that to my truck sometime too.

Looking good Ryan. Ur truck is awesome man. I like how u have it set up on the outside. And i'll have to say the best spot IMO to put ur CB antenna. Ive got mine mounted in the same place too. Them bumpers look good man for u makin them yourself. I see u go u some projectors for the truck. I got me some but thought i ordered the right kit but apparently not. so i sent them back to TRS and their sending me the right kit this time round. By the way where at in NC do u live? Im here in Caldwell County if u know where thats at. if u get time let me know whay u think of my build if u want man.

motostar00 10-14-2013 07:17 PM

swappin my old 3.90s for some 4.88s with a locked rear diff!

02 TRD Tacoma 10-14-2013 07:18 PM

camper looks good man. now the next thing is put u some racks on the top and ur set. what size LED bar did u go with Ryan? im thinkin about gettin some of them rigid industries spot lights for the bumper. but first i would have to sell my hella 500s. IMO the led's matches the projectors the best. ur projectors are bad ass dude. i just go mine put on about a week ago and to regret any thing about em. how close r u to Lenoir NC? r u from around Asheville?

motostar00 10-14-2013 07:30 PM

Ya I go to school in sylva NC, but I Live in Asheville. I Bought it at northern tool and im surprised with it. but thanx a appreciate it. we go four wheelin all the time around in tennesse and my girlfriend lives near old fort and I think that is fairly close to you

02 TRD Tacoma 10-14-2013 07:44 PM

if u r ever close round here will have to meet up somewhere man. ur trucks lookin good man. u'll have to check out my build man. like the spot u put the cb antenna. most guys put em on the back but i put mine in the same spot u did real convenit. what all did u use to fab up ur rael bumper? wantin to fab me up one or a swing out carrior or somthin.
