Whiteclouds Build Finally..........

So I guess it's finally time. Some things might be out of order but I'll try to keep it straight. Some projects are currently under construction but I'll put them up here and add the pics later. Yes alot of the pics are from another site but that is where the Build thread was first posted up.


So to start it's an '06 Doublecab long bed Sport that we bought with a Revtek Leveling Kit. Looked good when we bought it. Figuered I needed a truck that I could tow and haul stuff with.....plus always kinda wanted a Tacoma.




Then thanks to Alex from TacomaWorld and a flyer for a meet out in the Rio Puerco rediculously close to my house came my enrolment on TW.


Let the Mods begin........


Current Mods to date...in no perticular order


285-70-17 Treadwright Guard Dogs on the FJ wheels.
285-70-17 BFG KM2's. (Lobster13 has them now)
Painted engine cover.
Painted Radio surround.
Painted Center console.
Blacked out emblems and debadged.
Remounted badges on door and small Toyota logo on front grill.
Satoshi grill done by me with FJ Toyota logo. Logo broke thanks to a bird.
CB radio in the center console.
Center console Lock Mod.
BHLM.
Blue side marker lights. Changed to red as of Aug 2012
Fog Light anytime Mod.
Painted Sport wheels with road tires.
Painted FJ wheels with off-road tires.
Home made Front and rear tube bumper.
Home made weld-on sliders.
Blue sea Fuse Block with circuit breakers mounted in engine bay.
Horns moved and mounted below fuse block plate.
Fire extinguisher mounted behind rear drivers side seat.
Hella 500's mounted behind Satoshi on custom brackets.
Too much travel not enough shock length mod.
Rear diff breather relocation.
ProComp lights on front bumper.
ICON remote resovoir extended travel coilovers.
Rear Bumper with integrated CB mount.
Re-gear to 4.56 Nitro gears.
BAMF LCA skids (:woohoo: Moab 2012 Raffle).
Cold Air Intake (Thanks to Lobster13)
FreelanceFab Shackle Flip Kit.
Rock Lights, total of 8 under there.
Painted dash rings.
Spare half shaft for rear axle.
I'm sure I forgot some things as well Ill add them as I remember them


Now on to the PICS Enjoy......


Stock Truck and the freshly painted black wheels


















Fuse block mounted with the horns underneath


WHOOPS

And still managed to haul rock on a busted shock......this is after we empited about half of it......

It is cause I kept doing this to the original rear shocks.......too much travel not enough shock......

New bumper coming together......... I'll get some pics of it on the truck this weekend when I go back and start to work on it again. Sorry for the crappy pics.






Added 3 tabs on the upper bar for the new lights I got from CBI Offroad.



Just ordered some of these a couple weeks back and they should be here this week.

That's it for now. Got some other projects planned as well but I'll keep you updated.

Nice dude! way to motivate on the build thread. I need to make one too. I definitely need to do a couple of the mods you have done already... center console lock and diff breather are on my list fo sho. I am curious about the fuse block too, does that help with the offroad lights?
BTW pics didnt load...? I would love to see your bumpers and sliders, thats wicked. SO much freakin $$$ for armor. thats great you got it dialed for materials basically. that is the way to go!

Let me know if you have any questions about any of the mods that I did and I will try to help you out. And there is a chance I might even be willing to make another bumper and some more sliders. Just let me know and it would also be cool to see you up at the meet as well.

sorry bout the delay, I was up in Idaho for river trip.... That sounds great, I hope I can make it. I do have sliders built by Brute force, havent installed em yet. In fact they are oxidizing as we speak. they need to be sanded, painted and welded on. IDK if that will happen before the meet, cause I am working OT like a hoar out on central. not saying no to anything... lol....

btw trucks looking GOOD!!!

Lots of trimming with the Revteks but I still hqvent chopped the body mounts. And yep stock uca's. The Icons I will have to check but they are cranked up to about 1 3/4" ish on each side. I'll get a better measurement later today.

So to update this a bit. After the shocks I left the sway bar off and flexed it out a little... much better I would say.

Also managed to get a tire carrier built for the father in laws Jeep.


Spray on bedliner for the fenders after taking off the stock flares


Some new shoes

And getting ready to start on the new tubular rear bumper with swing away tire carrier.

Start to the high clearance rear bumper by cutting the hitch apart and flipping it over.........




Also got a truck tent for the Moab trip. Now the wife and I might go camping a bit more.....



Also painted a small part of the rocker panels above the sliders. I als otook off the fender flares and painted the actual fenders with the same spray on bedliner.
