The Golden Taco

Specs:
  • 2006 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner
  • 4.0 V6
Engine:
  • K&N CAI
  • WickedFlow Muffler

Suspension:
-Front:
  • Bilstein 5100's on stock coils at 0"
  • Camburg 4" lift Spindles
  • Light Racing Upper Control Arms
  • Camburg Extended Brake Lines
-Rear:
  • All Pro 3" leaf springs
  • Icon Remote Reservoir shocks
  • U-Bolt Flip Kit

Interior Mods:
  • Scangauge 2
  • iPod hookup to stock stereo
  • Broken Center Console
Exterior Mods:
  • Black Headlight Mod
  • Satoshi on black grille
  • Painted behind the grille
  • Bedliner on rear bumper
  • '09 tail lights
  • Baja Bumper with 2 KC lights.
Wheels/Tires:
  • 285/70/17 BFG AT's
  • 17" LiquidMetal Gatlin Wheels
Stock:


This is the closest thing I have to a stock picture.


Front Lift:
I then put in my bilstein 5100's at 2.5" and ran the rear stock. I had that going for a while. I can't seem to find any pictures however.

I ran that for a few months then I scored the Camburg Spindles from the b/s/t here, and got those installed. I had money to do the rear suspension at the same time but then I ran into problems installing the spindles so the money was gone. So to keep you updated I had the 5100's at 2.5" + Spindles for 4" = to a total of 6.5" of lift up front.



Here you can see my tire just doesn't look right.



Here is the truck with the lean .


Baja Bumper:
Then at the last mod day PreRunnerSeth threw in Roseville I picked up my Gatlin wheels from a member here, and purchased Kevin (1337taco's) baja bumper and got it installed. I also picked up my Light Racing UCA's from JD (Stillyfly) when he got his FJ, and installed those too. I also lowered my bilstein 5100's from 2.5" to 0" so now I only had the 4" of lift up front.








Rear Lift:
After that I started a new job and was able to start bringing in the money. I bought AP's 3" rear leaf pack, U Bolt Flip Kit, and Stainless Steel brake lines. I also scored a pair of Icon Remote Resi shocks for the rear to go with the new leaf pack. I installed them at Kevin's (1337taco) house with the help of him, Jason (strom), and Kevin's dad. As we were putting things back together we realized I didn't have the top plates for the U-Bolts so we stretched the U-Bolts out to fit into the stock plate and bolted/torqued them down. We managed to get them on and I now have the entire Flip kit on safely.



This is the only pic I have of it now. I will get more once the new wheels/tires are on.


Random Pictures:
Before I installed the leaf pack I met up with Mark (solus694), and Steve (senor_taco) for the Central Coast photo shoot. I also picked up my tires from Mark.



From left to right: Steve (senor_taco), Me, Mark (solus694)




Wheeling Picutres:












Thanks for spending the time to read over my build, and I hope you enjoyed it. Any rep will be returned, and any information, questions, comments, concerns, etc will be read over and taken in.

Thank you. The bumper is pretty sweet, although I get the temptation to just take it off and go back sometimes.
