thechamper's build | '09 DCLB MGM

2009 Tacoma TRD Sport Prerunner Double Cab Long Bed
Magnetic Gray Metallic
4.0 V6


I picked her up October 26, 2011. This thread will track my build out over the next couple months!

One year later...


Here she is in her sales picture.


Came with:
Mods I have done: (pictures to come)
  • Customized Eclipse start-up screen (How to - thanks to czechm8 & TRD Wallpapers from JDMcompliant)
  • Painted badges custom green - just finished paint, plan to reattach this weekend (Inspiration)

  • Ready Lift Suspension 3.0"F/1.0"R - Eliminated my tire rub!
    **Pictures soon to come! Waiting on a day of good weather to wash the truck!
  • Goodyear All-weather mats (Autozone) FYI - Don't buy the cheaper Autozone brand, I had a set and put a hole in them with my shoes in a couple months...Worthless!!
  • Tailgate anti-theft hoseclamp (Tread)
  • 3" Black Powdercoated Nerf Bars (Truck Champ)
  • Black Kobalt Diamond Plated Slim Low Profile Toolbox

Green Badges



I'm going to attach them back to the truck this weekend. Anyone recommend a specific tape? I picked some up from Autozone, but the sales guy didn't give me much confidence in the 3M level 2 tape i got.

I'd say the 3m. Although I haven't used any other double sided automotive tape but I guess I havent needed to since 3m brand does the job.

The 3M tape from AutoZone has always worked great for me, used it a number of times with no problems.

Thanks for the advice guys! I ended up doing a little more research about the "Level 2" tape I bought and it turns out it was the recommended strength for the emblems. Was a little bit time consuming but 3M adhesive double sided tape worked great!

How do y'all think that coloring of the emblems would look on a silver "background"?
