Other:
Scanguage
400w anytime mod
Double AC plug behind my center console
ABS kill switch mod
Roof rack

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.





finished product


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"



before:
after:




my wife got me an early bday present

thanks, im going to try and put the spacers on sun or mon at the latest, ill def be posting up some updated pics.

Adam
i used night shade on my tail lights. you just take them off and rought them up with some 500 grit sand paper, and clean them good. i would spray them in the garage or something where there is min wind. i put like 3 coats using short bursts to try and get an even coat. and thats it. i have heard of people clear coating them after but i didnt really see the need to. you can pick up the night shade at any auto store. i got mine at advanced. hope that helps. just make sure you let it dry atleast a half hr between coats and let it dry atleast an hr or 2 before you try and re-install them.

Well I'm not sure if he did it intentionally but it looks like it. Check out the pics from this last weekends meet and you'll see. You know if you'll ever be back to FL?
