my build done (for now)

traded this for my down payment on my truck


now I'm $20200 in debt with a 08 taco 50k miles on it and in real good condition.
First day Home



first thing I did was put in a 10" rockford fosgate and a pioneer stereo with ipod controls. I made my sub box to fit where I can open up my seats half way to get to them.


Put on a bull bar


then made some decals at work



put 3" spacers in front and 1" in back


Painted my wheels black


did satoshi mod

the grill mesh didnt come in yet so i used rabbit cage wire

then got the mesh and put some hella 500's behind it



started running out of money so I did the budget mods
fog lights on with a oem switch and DTRL

debadged it too. I actually planned to paint them black and even took them off and painted them but liked it better off.

and made a new decal recently. Its not turned sideways its just how it uploaded. I had this on my celica too.



Then I got a new mini taco to match the big one
hahaha

bought painted doorhandles then painted my mirrors and brackets


debadged my truck again even the trd decals

and put hellas on bullbar - will post a pic in couple days when I put my mirrors on, if I had a little extra paint I was going to color match the inside of my satoshi and leave the outside chrome. Ill think about it next paycheck

Nice truck buddy, I'm not big on red, but I really like the look of yours so far. Definitely a good purchase.

I agree with ya, wasn't knockin ya. Really dope truck man. I went from an 07 Scion tC to the Taco, and I don't regret it one bit. Having the truck is so much nicer than having a tiny car. Congrats

Same man. You pretty much summed up my experience. Except I got hit with a 65 in a 25, and for drifting through a parking lot lol.

scroll about halfway down the page to #9

just dont cut the green wire and leave it, you have to keep it connected to both ends of plug, this was my first mistake. just run a wire from middle of green to the bent relay plug in the pic. its really easy. and drill a hole to run the wire through so it dont get pinched.
