The McJosh mini- beast

I've been checking out people's build threads and barely realized I didn't have one.

Well My truck is a 2005 small, base model, 5-lug tacoma. Currently sits with 72k miles. My first mod was the limo tint and smoked all the lights. I then picked up a scooped hood and color matched grille that both needed repair. And it looked like this:




(satoshi was done while it got repaired)

Next I got 30" BFG's with pro comp wheels:



Later on I found out about fatbob's and ditched the readylift idea. I also put 33" pro comp tires with new kmc enduro wheels. And 2 hellas behind the grille.:



I didn't like the chrome rear bumper so Avid Off Road made me a new tube rear bumper:



Avid O.R. Sliders came next:



I ran into a bush and got tired of the scratches on my front bumper cover and got a front tube bumper from Avid as well:



Throughout all that stuff, I put
-an afe CAI
-a flowmaster muffler chopped to dump over the axle
-3 stereos and 3 sets of subs with different enclosures.
-changed my bench for 2 bucket seats
-did the DIY armrest mod
-Installed a cobra 75 with 3' firestik
-Bought all weather Tacoma mats
-Installed 2 extra fogs in the bumper
-Put 3 rear lights altogether
-traded my scooped hood for a regular hood
-bought black bezel head lamps
-stuck some TRD decals on the bedsides from tunafish

They were 8179's but required a darn spacer and my lug nut would only catch a few threads so I ditched the whole wheel and got my kmc enduro's.

About $350. I'm local so there's no shipping..

my previous tire size was 33x12.5x15 they were pro comp x terrains. No rubbing after the little black box was removed and I also didn't have the fender well. The tires I'm running now are 32x11.5x15 (they're better suited for my needs)

Since your tire is 285 I'm assuming on a 16" wheel, that could make a height issue. My wheel's offset was also a role player in that.
