Brian's Extended Travel Build

Updated 1/22/12




It's about time I put together a build thread right?


So heres how she looks today...
























Some more raw footage of suspension flex, gettin a little light on 'er feet

http://youtu.be/nSJ3D3RTNmU






Current configuration:



2007 Radiant Red Double Cab LONG BED! Sport



Things that make her drive nice:



Fox 2.5 Extended Travel shocks up front.



Fox 2.0 Extended Travel shocks in the rear.



Desert Motorsports Uniball Upper Control Arms



Icon Progressive 3 Leaf AAL pack for 1.5", overload installed.



17x8 Ultra Goliath Black Powdercoat wheels.



285/70/17 BFGoodrich Mud-terrain KM2's 295/70/70 Toyo Open Country M/T's


1" Front Differential Drop



B.A.M.F. Rock sliders with added kickout




Things that make her look nice:



Black Headlight Mod



Trex (original style) eyelids



Tinted tail lights (VHT)



Daytime Running Light mod



Anytime Foglight mod



Blacked out lower valence



Homemade Satoshi grill with M4 Mesh (Thanks HomerTaco!)



Debadged tailgate



Gloss blacked Tacoma door emblems.



21% front tint.



LED Cargo Lights




Other various mods:



Pop-n-lock 8520 rear tailgate lock (unlocks with keyfob)



Removed secondary air filter.



Aftermarket head unit



Hertz 6.5" mid-bass drivers (standalone) for front doors, Kicker KS13 tweeters.



JL 6.5" TR-650Cxi coaxials for rear doors



JL Audio 300/4 amplifier



Jl Audio 250/1 amplifier driving;



Rockford Fosgate P3DS shallow mount 10" subwoofer in a Mr. Marv box.





Future mods:



Front limit straps



Front Cab mount chop



DT Long Tube headers



an exhaust of some sort.



and eventually... the supercharger.






Suspension photos!























Exterior Mods!

















Few bugs in that one





My window tint is almost a perfect match to the stock back tint. I've never really noticed a difference.


I've had it on since I bought the truck 4 years ago now, and this is the first time I've noticed that it has a slightly different color to it. Its not noticable.














Some random photos







































Heres a video of the stereo. Best I could do, sitting inside the vehicle was mad distortion.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJK2HrZqT3g







Finally recorded some sound of my exhaust. If someone really wants a driveby I might be able to arrange, there is absolutely no drone with this setup. You get off the gas and it sounds stock. Its PERFECT.

http://youtu.be/P3SzQQQNOiE

http://youtu.be/JZCWz4iym9Y



Slow acceleration and cruise....

http://youtu.be/kDvrlAgaUFM





I will start dumping all my photos onto this thread so keep an eye out!

Thanks guys... I need to start collecting more photos, especially once I start getting her off road more. This is more of a placeholder for now

Never really had anything good to talk about. Since I moved to Cali a month ago, I took up my official sponsor and went to work on the suspension and front end Now I just need to get some smaller items and go have some fun with it!

Thanks everyone!

More pics will come over the next couple days. I've forgotten some of my mods that I now take for granted
