JStreetS: 2009 DCLB Build Thread

Hey TacomaWorld,


It’s about time I put together a build thread…here goes nothing.
Truck Specs:
2009 Toyota Tacoma – Double Cab Long Bed - TRD Sport
*Purchased new from Superior Toyota (Erie, PA) - ask for Ann Richter - she is awesome! Family and I have bought 2 Tacomas from her.

Mods (in order of install):
Custom XM Radio install and window tint (20% in the front, stock tint on the back)
Bull bar (for sale now!)
TRD CatBack Exhaust
Tonneau Cover

After messing around with the basic stuff, now time for the fun:
6” Procomp Stage I lift
285/70/R18 Toyo MTs (34X11.50R18))
18” Method Rims
Step Bars (to come)

Pics:
Clean XM install – Thanks Enormis Audio!


Tonneau Cover:


Truck line up at the apartments:


Last pre-lift picture:




Off the lift rack:


Morning at the spa:



Level stance (picture shows the front end higher, it’s not the case):



Really like the Method 18” – wrapped in Toyo MT rubber:



Angle shot:


Special thanks to the following vendors for helping me out:
Enormis Audio & Electronics (Erie, PA)
Jeepers Den (Orlando, FL)
Rock & Roll Offroad (North Richland Hills, TX)
And most importantly, my wife for putting up with my indecisiveness!

If you are in the DFW,TX area and are looking for a great truck shop, definitely check out Rock & Roll Offroad. They are the won Top Shop in the US for Offroad dealers. They have a rep on TW for doing solid work, quickly, but can be pricey. To be honest, I got quotes from various 4WP (just for comparison, don’t worry, I wasn’t going there), Don Davis Toyota (Arlington, TX) and Rock and Roll Offroad. R&R Offroad was the most reasonable and easy to deal with! I am thrilled at the price I paid for my turnkey lift set-up. They are all business there, don’t bother them with different quote options – show up and they will hook you up! Check out some of their other builds and rides here: http://rockandrolloffroad.com/

That’s about it for now, eventually looking forward for a new project. Will hold on to this truck for a long time!

In advance of the questions, I would like to make the following statements:
MPG – Yes it will go down, who cares, your truck will drive like a tank. I will get about 320 miles/tank before fill up (accounting for new tires.) Check out my Fuelly stats here: http://www.fuelly.com/driver/jstreeterinc/tacoma

Regrets – NONE! Most unpractical decision I have made and love it! Unpractical in terms of it doesn’t really add value, you pay more for gas, and could run into maintenance issues in the future. I did run into the VSC issue that others have commented on - it isn't a big deal, just something I wish I did more research on before I lifted my truck...regardless, I wouldn't have changed my decision.

Thanks Beerye and Zimms! I agree, the LBs look a little low without the lift. Took me long enough to commit on what I wanted. I am happy with the setup!

Lucky. My TRD OR only gets 300 per tank if I am lucky, with no lift and stock tires. Its the altitude, 7000+ feet fuel burns fast and less power. I would love to drive my truck at sea level.

Thx jerret and Chris!

@chris, I should probably delete my fuely for a little bit, I ave about 16-17mpgs with the lift. I have almost 60 fill ups, so 19mpg is lifetime. I get just over 300 miles before having to fill up. Honestly it gets annoying but oh we'll, only live once haha. I commute about 50 miles a day, the miles are more fun with my lift and I feel safer above traffic..l drive slower too so that's a good thing!

16-17 mpgs is still great for that big of a truck with that lift and those tires. I'm not getting much better in my little 4 banger. . But like you said, only live once Great ride man
