First day drove it to school!
First, I wanted to see what she could do stock so I took her on a trail run at Cleghorn with some buddies.
Then, my cd player kept spitting out cds so I figures, why not get a nice one that nobody would want to steal. Its a Clarion unit.
Then I wanted to do some exterior mods. First came the plasti dipped emblem. Did about 5 coats. Came out great!
Then I installed some eagle eyes but before i did that I put a thick bead of silicone on them so they wouldn't leak.
Then came the KRFAB tire gate. I got this from RCFreak because I plan on upgrading rim and tire size. Plus it looks awesome!
Went to the dealer to get some touch up paint and snagged these little bastards for 8 bucks.
Then came the Flowmaster dual out exhaust. Scored for 200 bucks
Traded my stock hood for a scooped hood.
Got a demello light bar from Sabre
then I bought his cb set up. Nothing super special. Just a normal 40 channel cb.
then I replaced the ugly job I did on the switch with a new carling switch. I just filed out the hole a bit and it fits perfect! Thanks 4wheelparts Azusa!
Bought a K&N intake, but sold it. Saving up for Volant.
Then came a new BLACK grill. Thanks Shiftin2Sixth
Picture of the rear how it sits now since I got a couple of q's on it.
Curt came through and we traded rims and ac panels!!!! Thanks again Shiftin2Sixth!!!
Shorty Aluminum Antenna
Changed my gauges to white. Thanks Lembowski(lights) and Jerez(install)
Old bumper from Engage Offroad. Thanks Vitang!
HIDs - 5000k All mounted up!
Got new Hella 500s and installed them to my stock foglight switch!
Foundoffroaddead and I bored and decided to take up a street and take some pics
Replaced orange window switch with a white one to match my cluster
Better Rims - KMC Enduros
NEW HID Fog Lights w/ Hella 4000 internals to replace the halogen Hella 500s. Glad I did it.
Diff Breather Mod
The electrical tape was used to cover up the silver hose clamp and is merely to blacken the color of it. Does not hold on the breather!!!
Got my rear prerunner bumper made! Will be painted soon!
Also they are FOR SALE! - http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/sou...ing-300-a.html
Thanks to Jerez, Anothony250, Manwithoutaplan, Blawkhawke88 and Whippersnapper for all the help with the install. I seriously coulnt have done it without you guys. And thanks Ryan for letting us use your girlfriends house. Also, thank you very much socaltrd for the really generous deal. There's no way I could have gotten this lift otherwise.
THE LIFT- Camburg Performance UCAs 1" Uniballs, Bilstein 5100s all around, and All pro 3" expedition leaf pack.
I painted my skid and also chopped and remounted the lower portion.
WENT FROM THIS
Jerez did my fog and locker lights since they burnt out. Thanks again man!
4" McNeil Fiberglass Fenders
THE HAT Meet
Putting these on tomorrow HOPEFULLY! Scored for $200
Got them all mounted! Makes the truck a bit taller and fills the fiberglass a hell of a lot better.
