So I bought my truck in January of 2009. 2005 TRD 6 speed double cab short bed. Paid $19,000. Came lifted w/intake and exhaust. Made the dealership tint the windows.
I always liked the look of the 2nd gen tacomas but just couldn't find myself to pay so much. Once I saw it was a six speed I couldnt walk away from this one 4 door, lifted, intake, exhaust and six speed!
Looked like this!








 
 

Got stuck playing in the mud one night! That was one long night. Had to call my boss at 2 a.m. to get a ride home to get my girlfriends Montero Sport.








The after pics!





 
After getting pulled over a few times for speeding had to buy a Hypertech Speedometer Recalibrator. Now speedo is correct half the time. Still not sure why it says I'm moving sometimes(mostly after breaking the tires loose) Luckily I got a gps that tells me how fast im going. Its very annoying not sure how fast Im actually going sometimes. Dont always use my gps.
Not having enough money for a front plate bumper I did some research and found the n-fab light bar and topped it with 4 hella 7 inch lights. Shortly after replaced the bulbs with super white 100 watt bulbs.





Did some testing and did my own version of the foglight anytime mod. So my fogs would come on when my running lights were on with the key on, Also with the brights.




Then came some HID lights for my headlights. Bought some cheap ones off ebay. They were only low beams. Didnt like them and found a better deal after doing more research from ddmtuning.com so got the high/low beams and fogs.






Tinted my tail lights.

More MUD!


Pulling out my buddys F-150 in the mud


And in the snow

Kept hearing my fan hit the shroud. Though it was just a bad motor mount ordered a new one from the dealer. Did some research online and found my frame broken. Had to weld it back together! Better then new now!

Motor mount EPIC FAIL!

Finally saved up enough money for a Tactical Armor Bumper and mounted xrc-8 winch. Had them make a custom light bar to hold the 4 hellas.
Before I mounted my winch all up took it apart and cleaned out all the nasty grease it comes with and put in full synthetic.

New bumper installed.



Some pics at pismo beach.



Bought a dirt bike barely fits in the bed!

Out shooting in the rain and snow.

Playing in the snow!

More playing in the hills

HID Offroad lights.
Was wanting to upgrade my hellas and got a great deal on the 7" HID offroad lights they sell at orielly. Gotta say they are nice definite upgrade from the old hellas but still seems like my headlights are brighter since they are 55watt and these only being 35 watt.



My little helper. Damn dog has to be doing everything I do. She is cute though.

As long as you can get out, don't worry about getting stuck! Hell, I'm always TRYING to get her stuck just as long as I've got a way to get her out if I do. It's more fun that way!

Nice build...love the pics of your puppy! If she rides around with you a lot you should look into one of these:

I love mine and it keeps the seats halfway protected!
