Lightbulb H2Otx's Build

Today, while I am at work and everyone else in the world is off, I figured I would use my time wisely and begin to compile my build for a history of my truck, and what I plan to do with it. Also, to inspire other's creativity.

This will be an all encompassing thread, as I will have my current additions to the truck along with future pieces I plan on purchasing.

I also will attribute credit to those parties who produced some of the parts and helped give me inspiration.

I will update when I can. Pictures will be posted as I update

--------------------

Vehicle = 2010 Toyota Tacoma
Body = Double Cab
Package = TRD Off Road
Add-ons from Dealer = remove TRD Stickers, tinted windows, iPod adapter...and that was pretty much it.


I will do this in sections:
1.) Current Appearance
2.) Exterior Aesthetics
3.) Interior Aesthetics
4.) Electrical
5.) Under the Hood
6.) Suspension
7.) Wheels & Tires


Thanks to the following for ideas, custom parts and fabrication:
- Andres
- Coupe a.k.a. James
- Tim @ txpowdercoating.com
- Jeremy @ 4wheelparts.com
- MJP2 a.k.a. Mike @ liberatedracing.com
- PreRunnerSeath
- Outlaw7
- Lurkin
- ForceFedJunkie a.k.a. Todd @ aeroforcetech.com

Lightbulb 6.) Suspension

Currently:

- TRD Off Road STOCK set up

- Rear Leaf TSB 0305-08 was performed 2/2/11
+ The a$$ is in the air a little more but I think it gives it a little more aggressive stance.
+ They claim that it is a harsher ride, but... I actually like it. It complements the OR Bilsteins very well.

- Steering TSB 0119-10 was performed 2/2/11
+ So far with the alignment performed the steering feels tighter and like it should have come from the factory


Future:

- Performance 1.25" Uniball UCAs from Camburg

- 2.5" Coilover w/ Remote Resivoir from Fox

- Stainless Steel Braided Brake Lines from Crown Performance

- 3" Expedition HD Leaf Springs from All-Pro

- Carrier Bearing Drop from StreetTacos.com

- JounceShock System from Light Racing

Not yet. Still piecing together what to get next. Just received the blendmount for my Valentine 1 and new shoes. Pics to come.

Still planning on it. Why, sup? I have already researched it a bit. What's your question?

BUMP...for progress...

So, I ended up removing the Vent Visors because they are just a pain. I removed the Shorty antenna because it started to rust. I will upgrade to a craven speed antenna in the near future.

SO far:
- Installed a set of Elite Redline Tuning Hood Struts (pics to come).
- Purchased a 2nd set of wheels, BBS RD Truck wheels 17x8.
- Picked up a bed divider.
- Forged Aluminum Trailer Hitch for rust resistance.
