rsxftw Build Thread

Hey guys,

Recently picked up a 2005 Tacoma v6 sr5 prerunner long bed to go along with my 2006 RSX Type S.
So Far i absolutely love the truck, only thing is i wish i got the 4x4 I didnt think i was going to love playing in the dirt so much! But i make do with what i have, my next Taco will be a 4x4 thats forsure.

When i bought her she was stock other then Billet grille and shorty antenna. Since then ive added 3" lift, and 17x9 XD Addicts wrapped in 32" Nitto Terra Grappler tires. Also a couple other little additions have been debadging, and blacking out the side Tacoma emblems.
Shes a work in progress, more mods to come forsure. So far im loving the truck game. Ive always been into modding cars, but having this truck has just been a blast!

Current stance!



First day i got her-


Here she is with just the lift no tires or wheels yet-


And heres how she sits now. Took her down to pismo for a little camping trip, depsite being 4x2 she still held her own in the sand! I was happy with it.

Thanks dude!

It blocks in the back and Bilsteins rear shocks, and just spacers up front.
It works for now. Im thinking Fox coils overs would be nice sooner or later. But this will do for now.

The tires are 265/70/17s.

Depends what your going for. For intakes i had a k&n but got rid of it. IMO the trd intake is the best because the entire intake is enclosed and sounds real nice. With intakes theres not to many hp gains but just in sound. Cat-back is up to you as well. I have a flowmasters 40 which is loud as hell sounds real nice. Performance wise is probably does nothing haha. Check out wicked flow, Ive heard dual flowmasters,50 and 40 flowmaster, trd, magnaflow, and wicked sounds the best! Get ready to spend some money haha I cant stop!
