Here is my build so far. The truck is a spruce mica access cab 2012 with the 2.7L. It's an SR5 package truck with the OR wheels. I have done mostly cosmetic stuff besides removing the secondary air filter, adding a K&N filter, and doing the yellow wire mod. I also removed the mudflaps (PM me if you want them). I plan on keeping this fairly mild. I do some off roading so I will add a little lift in the future but my 4x4s have always been my daily drivers so anything too extreme is impractical.
So far I love this truck. Gas mileage has been good, power from the 4cyl is acceptable, it is a smooth driver, what little light wheeling I've done has shown the capabilities suit my needs (not necessarily wants) even stock, and it looks good to boot!
BTW: These are all iPhone pics. My card reader for my SLR quit working a while back and I haven't bought a new one. Sorry, I wish the quality were better.
Here is my truck the day after I brought it home. A good pic of the front end.
Here it is a few days later doing some light wheeling. Just posted this pic to get some back end shots.
I plastidipped the chrome pieces: grille, emblems, rear bumber. I also tinted my tail lights slightly.
NEW ADDITION Bull bar added
I also added the Golden Retriever(yes, she's old) and Cathoula Leopard Dog (no, he's not) mod to the bed:
Near future: aux lights on BB, nerf bars, tonneau cover, dog hammock for rear seats (ordered), darken inside of headlights, diff breather mod
ASAP: 3" lift, larger and more aggressive all terrains
***I haven't decided on whether or not to black out the wheels...opinions?
