Black Blade build

A couple of guys have asked me why Black Blade. It comes from the screen name I use here and in online gaming(yes, I am a geek). Sgian Dubh is a Gaelic word for a Scottish dagger. The name means black (or hidden) knife, so Black Blade build.
Currently:


Originally:

Just picked this up today, 2011 TRD Sport V-6 Manual transmission. Just got done de-badging, tomorrow she has an appointment with a supercharger.

04JUL11 SC installed, URD exhaust and quick shifter, AFE CAI, Ventshades

17JUL11 Tinted

30JUL11 Lamin-X, WeatherTech mats

03AUG11 Idiot trucker rear-end mod (really don't reccommend this one)

19AUG11 Safely back at home from the shop, freindly police officer reccommended that I remove all Lamin-X


10SEP11 OME 886, Dakar Leaf pack and Desert Products UCAs

12SEP11 FJ TRD rims with BFG 285s

26NOV11 Frame Chop done, lotsa parts awaiting install.

07MAR12 Relentless Armor arrives

17MAR12 Relentless Armor on

15APR12 Center console organized Eyelids installed

11AUG12 Roof Rack and Jungle Flares

11AUG12 High Lift mounted


19AUG12 Ram Mount Cell Holder

22NOV12 Rear ended again, I hate stupid people. Had been stopped at a light for over a minute, dumb bitch plows me from behind. Four adults in the car, no one thinks to say "OMG STOP!" When the 300lbs woman is asked by the police officer "Why did you hit him?". Her response is "I just dropped something and was looking for it when, smash". I would attest that it would have been impossible for her to find anything in her truck without removing her puddled ass from the vehicle...

31DEC12 Rigid installed in the scoop.

February 2013 Blue Sea fuse box.

Always on USB charger


Wired in Rigid lightbar to FJ switch, replaced PIAA fogs with D2s.

Most updated pic I have atm. Only things new done to her are window tinting, WeatherTech floor mats, and a Momo gearshift knob. I have Lamin-x standing by to be installed this weekend, headlights, tail lights, fogs and windshield. Am scared to install the Scangauge, having too much fun with the gas pedal. I am waiting for DownSouth Motorsports to get Desert Racing UCA's and some Dakars in stock so they can send me out my lift. Waiting on some FJ TRD Anthracite wheels to show up (should be fri/sat). Put an order into Eric for some Relentless armor, two month wait, grr. Have a PA system with hands-free mic enroute. And did the hose-clamp rear gate mod.

On the improvement with the Supercharger... Holey hell!!!! The look on my wife's face when I downshifted from third to second and punched it was priceless. Threw her and the kids back into their seats as the car went from 25 to 45 faster than a truck should be able to. Still learning the truck though, but it shocks the crap out of people that think that they can get in front of me, hehe. matt

Great looking truck. You've already done killer mods to it, and sounds like you have awesome plans aswell. Subbed for pics!

Haha I wouldn't mess with anyone that has that big of plans for such a nice truck! If you had the longbed auto we'd have the same base truck. I have some plans for the next couple years for mine so we shall see!

Man, finding a Lamin-x installer close by is about impossible, ended up driving 200 miles to find one that can install the windshield. Jury is still out on if I'm going to keep it on there, looks like I am driving from the inside of a golf ball presently. Tons of dimples that the installer stated would dissapate in a day or two, we'll see. He also did the Headlights, Tails, fogs and third breaklight.

When I got home these were waiting on me, my wife wasn't too excited about having to carry all of them into the house while I was away...

Now just waiting on Downsouth Motorsports to get my OME system back in stock to lift her up and get new rubber on.

Same exact rims i am getting! just want to wait to get rims/tires and lift at the same time. That'll be a huge make over for my truck. Did you get them from

https://www.1sttoyotaparts.com/produ...b3848bbfc984fa

I was planning on getting those and getting them powdercoated satin black.

Very nice!
