Hey guys i have been a toyota owner since 2000 and i learned how to drive with a 1970 BJ45 3sp.
I currently own 4 Toyotas and i love them.
This build is on my 2007 Tacoma DC TRD Sport 6sp manual 4x4 speedway blue, a.k.a. SKY.
I ordered this truck before leaving for Iraq in March 2007 and i was able to get R&R leave at the end of August. By then my new truck was waiting for me for 2 weeks in the corner of the dealership...
i was so happy
brought her home and cleaned her up a lil but dint have too much time to do anything since i only had 2 weeks
and she sat for 12 more months waiting on my return. While deployed i was bored i started looking parts up and what i wanted etc etc so i started ordering parts and more parts...
When i got home the process started to mod her out just the way i wanted too...
Now i dont have any pics of the process all i have is the finished product as off right now. I get impatiante and want to see it finished and i dont feel like stoping and taking pictures blah blah blah... anyways the important stuff follows now...
these pictures are as of 6-june-11, SKY has roughly 41000 miles on her...

Call me OCD but i wash my truck twice a week and wax it once a month and get it clayed every 6 months.
So i got bored this week and i decided i was finaly gona tackle this issue we have of not enough toggle/rocker switches. as we all know toyota only gave us 6 spots on the drivers side and in my case 3 were already taken for the clutch cancel switch, inverter, and OEM fog lights.
Well i will eventualy add fog lights on my brush guard so i got this switch
then i did the 3rd brake light mod and for that i added this switch
and i will eventualy add a in cab inverter so that will take my last spot left on the drivers side so i decided to make a center control panel right underneath the a/c control panel.
and here are the pics
then i decided i dint like the silver color that surrounds the painted blue head unit dash kit so i painted it and while i was at it i added 4 5v powered USB plugs to it so i can charge several things...
here are the pics
now this is how my dash looks like now
for those that are asking themselfs whats that white thing under the CD, thats a Electronic cigarret, since i dont smoke in my truck i use that to kill the urges, and it charges via USB so another reason why i wanted to add the USB charging ports.
let me know what ur thoughts are guys...
