Talking juan01's 05 TRD Sport 4x4 build

This is going to be my first truck build... I originally had a 2004 Prerunner Doublecab but traded it in for an 05 6spd with only 35,xxx miles.



This is how it looked when I drove it off the lot. Horrible rims.


First mod was getting some OEM rims back on there... Also swapped in a shorty antenna.

The paint isn't perfect... if you look closely at the rear fender flare, there's a huge slash on it (got it like that). I'm currently looking for a replacement if anyone reading this knows of one for sale.


Here's a closer look at it:


Rear shot

I have lots of future plans for it... Right now I have a set of rims/tires on the way as I type this.

Rims/tires:
18x8.5 -19 offset Rays Gram Lights 57-sx Pro with titanium lips
Firestone Destination M/T 285/65/18

Still deciding on which lift kit to get, but I'm leaning towards the Toytec Ultimate lift and Light Racing UCAs.

I had to do a lot of reading... it's like starting over with all these terms - having come from the Honda world. This was my previous build - a 2000 Honda Civic SI which was featured in the September 2010 issue of Honda Tuning Magazine.

I'll update with more pics as I progress along the build. Thanks for looking!


FINALLY GOT MY LIFT AND WHEELS ON:

Here's also another collage of the rims:



Hoping to have everything on the truck by the end of next week! I'll be back with more pics then. Yeheeeee!

Good looking ride and after seeing the picture of the hotels in the background I thought that it looked very familiar; I've seen quite a bit of Guam and love the trips there.

Looks awesome dude, I'm loving those wheels.

Looks like you need some new headlights and fogs tho!

Yea, I do. Hard to find brand new oem ones... don't really want to go with aftermarket lights.

Also - I'm still rubbing on full/sharp/u-turns. blehhhh

Did some reading up on Revotec (Eagle Eyes) headlights and they seem pretty good.

I had a set of Eagle Eyes on my Civic a long time ago and they were pretty decent... so I went ahead and ordered a set for my truck.
