so my first truck was a 97 extra cab 4banger
then i joined the coast guard and decided that it was time to upgrade. so when while i was home on leave i took a trip down to san diego and looked at a couple different tacomas. ended up with an 06 4door longbed SR5 4wd, it came with a trd exhaust, trd skid plate and a billet grill.
my first couple days with it.
then i proceded to drive it from Orange County, Ca all the way to Cape Canveral, fl where i was stationed. i started my mods slowly there. first thing i installed was a trd CAI.
so i took her out and broke her in with some wheeling with some of the guys off of the florida bs thread
while i was on the boat i didnt make very much so i did little things to my truck to get it closer to being a storm trooper. so i blacked out my grill, wheels, tail lights, valence, and hood scoop. and since i almost ripped off my side steps i took those off. i also added a set of jba shorty headers (that i got off of TW) and had them put on.
then i got transfered to Airsta Clearwater
so when i got there i really started to picking stuff up for my truck. i started with getting some billies and eibachs (off of TW) and toytec AAL, as well as some light racing ucas that i got from a group buy on here. and 4 terra grapplers (285/70/17) from a guy on craigslist, and pretty much stole them from the guy got all four for $150.
then i did the fog light anytime mod, that was pretty easy to do. i decided to finish off the storm trooper theme and and get some bhlm and install those, hella 500s with hid conversions(off of TW) and a storm trooper head decal that i got from Sockmonkey.
and some poser shots
and my wife suprised me and got me a pair of spidertrax wheel spacers 1.25"
