Hello TW!! I am just now posting this build because my truck is going to be LT front and rear by the end of next week if all goes to plan .
For the front end, I will be picking up my engage LT kit with king c/os hopefully on monday.
For the rear end, my truck is in the shop right now getting the engage 50T pack installed with 16 inch fox remote resis to a bed saver cage. All of this work will be done a local fab shop called killer off road. Look them up online at killeroffroadfab.com, they do great work. The rear end work will be done by this weekend, and the front by next weekend.
here is the build up leading to LT.
heres my truck when i bought it
I know it looks built already but it dosent have much money into suspension.
I bought it with 32k miles for 16,000.
The mods that came on it when i bought it are: Camburg front bumper, Camburg oem bolt on c/o, Glassworks glass on all four corners, stereo system from JL audio, AR mojave 17 inch wheels on 33 inch pro comp xtreme all terrains. Rear suspension was bone stock.
For the next 3 or 4 months of owning the truck i was doing mods here and there, but nothing huge. 3 months after owning the truck and here is the result
Nothing really changed, I painted the grille and toyota emblem black, added 3 kragen H.I.D lights to the front bumper, and put a tint strip across the windshield. (side window tint is next)
Another 2 months went by and this is the result
Added to the truck in the above pics are 33 inch general grabbers on 16 inch kmc enduros, deaver 10 leaf bolt on pack (J66) with a pair of 14 inch SAW's with limit straps and shock hoops, the side window tint(5%), BHLM, a magnaflow muffler, dynamat liner on all the doors, a black rear bumper, and painted the silver grille work on the bumper black.
to tell you the truth i was not very happy with the way i built the rear. the SAW's rode very stiff, and shock hoops were nothing special. I knew i messed on the rear setup and i was going to basically re-do the rear end, but i left it for a while until rear LT.
So I left the truck like this for a while to get some money built up for LT front and rear. When the time came to buy i went with engages front LT kit with king coilovers. And for the rear i chose the 50T long travel leaf pack, u bolt eliminator kit, 8 inch shackles and fox 16 inch remote resi smooth body shocks. The front and rear install will be done by a shop here in Moorpark called Killer offroad, check them out killeroffroadfab.com
Pics will be posted for the front and rear build. Along with the finished product so stay tuned TW!
