A chronicalling of my 2006 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner.

Then along came a flex-lite electric fan.


A new tail gate was in order since the stock one was destroyed.


LC Engineering short shifter and JVC stereo putting out to Alpine S-type speakers


LC Engineering ceramic coated headers going down to an LCE exhaust w/ magnaflow muffler.




Tear down for Baja Bumpers tube bumper and projector headlights.



Baja Bumpers spare tire carrier.



And of course I had to get Devil Horns


4.56 Nitro gears and Detroit locker.


New Kumho AT's E-rated 305/70



Painted the bedside plastic.



Installed Icon progressive AAL's.




Lowered the shocks to an inch of preload and cut the cab mount.




And eventually got around to wiring up the halo's.

That suspension is worthy.

How do you like that electric fan? Much noise?
Thank you for your support

The fan is nice. It is noisy after I shut the truck down, and it kicks on to cool, but at that point I'm walking inside. While running it's not bad. IMO my second best investment so far.

Thank you, and Merry Christmas to you as well. Gen 1 regular cab in black was what I initially started shopping for. Still kind of want one, but this one has won a certain charm with me.

Good to know. Do you have a manual override so you can turn it off as needed? Are you looking to get a snorkel and extended your breathers to complete the "scuba" package?

Indeed I do have a manual override hidden away. The scuba package has never really crossed my mind. For the time being it will be a dirt/sand truck. Nothing extreem yet, just a few jumps, and good drifts here and there.

Nice Build! Thank you for your service and Merry Christmas! As as suggestion I would look into a cheap mod for your rear diff. Its a mod that alot of people do even if they go through little mud puddles.. its a breather extension and it the next mod to go on my rig as ive seen what water inside the rear diff does... (paid alot to get mine fixed)

Merry Christmas! And thank you for your service, stay safe over there.
I like the look of your truck, I have a regular cab 5-lug and I would love for it to look like that someday. I am curious at what size tires you are running? And did you notice anything significant with the K&N CAI when you installed it?

Thank you for you support, I really appreciate it I'm currently running stock tire size. I had 31's on it for about a year, but decided to go back down. I did notice a difference with the CAI. I know there are doubts, and haters of that mod, I WAS one of them until I decided to just go for it, and try it. Gas milage wise I can't comment on improvement because having noticed a difference I was (responsibly) zipping around everywhere. Especially in the desert.

I never really got the chance to try to see the difference. After I installed the first few parts I ran the tank empty and put in some 89. That will be the last time I do that on account of how fast it ran out. By the time I had to come back down range I filled it up with 87, and parked it.

If anyone is still subscribed, I got a quick update. My LCE headers showed up to the house today, so that will be the first thing I install when I get home IF I can't work out shipping my truck to MD to be the first with the URD supercharger for the 2.7.
