Arrow Ilg's Build

Well I figured it was about that time, I finally feel I have done enough modifications to my truck to warrant it's own build thread.

I have also received way to many wheel questions, so I figured it would just be easier to point people here than answer questions every time.

I still have to gather up the various photos from all the mods and different states, but this should be a good start.

BASE
  • 2009 TRD Off Road 4x4
  • Magnetic Grey Metallic
  • Access Cab
  • 4.0L V6
  • 6 speed Manual
  • Tow Package

  • Alpine X-100 iPod Headunit
  • JL 10W3
  • Alpine MRV-T420 Amp
  • Black Weathertech Floormats
  • Matte Black Vinyl Wrapped Cup Holder
  • Rear Seat Headrests Removed
  • Gloss Black Painted Factory Subwoofer Cover
  • TRD Shift Knob (locktited instead of that stupid nut they give you)


EXTERIOR
  • Colour Matched Grill
  • Matte Black Vinyl Wrapped Lower Valence
  • Matte Black Vinyl Wrapped Rear Bumper (No More Chrome!)
  • Lamin-x Yellow Foglight Film
  • Front Matte Black Toyota Logo
  • Debadged
  • Tacoma Bedmat
  • 8 Inch Antenna
  • Black Chrome TRD Badge on Tailgate


SUSPENSION
  • Bilstein 5100s set at 2.5 inches
  • Toytec AAL (for TSB/Canadian springs)

WHEELS & TIRES

Great looking truck. I really like those rims and that color match grill looks so much better then the original.

Looking good man! Quick question, did you just set the 5100s to 2.5 without installing an AAL, TSB, or anything else? I like the way your lift looks and I just ordered the billies

Yeah, the billies are at 2.5. No lift in the rear, although that is coming soon. The truck however is Canadian, so it comes from the factory with the TSB leafs

Your truck looks great! I was wondering, where do you get the vinyl for the rear bumper? Did you do it yourself?

I just went to a local art store. It came in 14inch wide rolls and I ordered something like 16 feet (extra in case I messed up). Only cost about 15 bucks. The hard part was putting it on, but with some help and a heat gun (or hair dryer) and it should be fairly easy.

Nope, no spacers, just the 4.5 backspacing on the wheels. I had to trim a little off the inside of the mudflaps when it was still stock height. But since the raise, it has not rubbed at all
