Building the HuntnTruk

2011 Barcelona Red TRD Offroad 4x4 Access Cab 6 Speed Manual

Current Picture:
UPDATE: Got a Paint Job and some new goodies


Just kidding...I bought a 2008 Indigo Ink SR5. Sold the red truck.
Mods on the 2008 Include:
Bilstein 5100 Front and Rear
OME 885 spring - No spacers or top plates
Icon 3 leaf Progressive AAL
Light Racing UCA
TRD Bronze Beadlocks
Cooper Discoverer ATP 265 75 16
Color matched Grill and Bumper
Weathertechs
AntennaX 14" antenna
Leer 100XR Shell
DeeZee Bed mat





First thing I did was painted the Toyota emblem on the front grille black.
I also tried to color match my grill but it came out a way different shade and some areas didnt stick very well.


So I just decided to buy a grill from Toyota parts barn and it looks perfect.


I was slowly acquiring pieces to my transformation. Since it was winter I didnt want to work on the truck anyway so I waited.




Then the time came where I got my new rims installed with Goodyear duratracs. SO Sick. I love how aggressive they are.



The next day I lifted her up and I couldnt be happier. I got exactly what I wanted.





MODS:
5100's with Eibach Coils @ 0
1.5 Wheelers Progressive AAL
U-bolt Flip
Pro-comp 7089 17x9
Goodyear Duratrac 265 70 17
Various Sockmonkey Decals
Weather Tech Liners
Pop and Lock
Color matched Grill
Debadged tailgate
Black emblems

Now I can sleep at night with wonderful dreams.


2/5/12 Update

ATO Rear Bumper.

I also bumped my eibachs to .85 at some point. Ill get some better pictures after the truck is clean.

BAMF Slider
LEER100XQ cap


Next up is skid plates.

The ride is fantastic. I wish I didnt end up with as much rake as I did, its equal to stock so Im not concerned about it.

The CNY Jeep meet was at Tassel Hill outside of Waterville. Its state land with some nice trails and areas to play around.

The bed utilized the slots in the "bed liner" to support two 2x6's horizontally and then there are two more 2x6s attached to those that are running vertically. Lay on a sheet of 3/4 ply and voila you made yourself a bed.

I meant the inside of the truck bed. I know its not a bed liner but I couldnt just say bed considering I built a bed(for sleeping) inside a bed(truck bed). Its too confusing haha

sweeet lookin truck! sits with a nice stance! that tire and rim setup is sharp.
you could set the front 5100's to .85 to make it set almost level couldn't you? although the rake is almost stock as you mention so not a biggy...
I have been considering the exact setup as you (tires and suspension) except front 5100's @ .85 with rear tsb w/ 1.5 aal.

sometimes i wish i went with reb or even blue, but the silver is soo easy to keep clean lookin

Lookin good!
