Thorpedo26 5 lug build

Starting to put this thread together a little at a time. Hope to add info and pictures soon!


Mod List:
Ready lift 2.75 spacer
Fatbobs 2.00 AAL
Bilstein HD front struts
Bilstein Stock TRD rear shocks
16 inch procomp 7031 rims
265/75/16 hankook dynapro a/t tires
one inch wheel spacers in the front
Tinted brake light new smoked l.e.d tail lights
plasty dirped side and front badges/removed rear badges
BHLM
Weather tech front matts
Red calipers "painted"
Cut exhaust pipe a little over axel
Where we are today


Ill start from the begining ...

Got my 2006 tacoma 5 lug "4cyl" in late april 2011. Best thing i ever did was trade in my 2004 gt mustang for a more dependable vehicle.
The truck came all stock except for a set of black 20' rims on 255/45/20's


Looking back i think the very first mod i did was paint the badges and tint the tail lights

Next was the anti theft tail gate cheap mod "no pic really needed for this"

People started saying i needed to paint the grill to color match and do a bhlm... so i did!


A few other things done around this time were paint my front calipers red, get the weather tech matts, and cut my tail pipe just over the axel.

I began to save knowing i didnt want a low rider. It took time and pacients but i was able to save up enough for my fatbobs lift for new shocks and aal's. Along with rims and tires.


Next was getting everything put together! it took alot of blood sweat and beers and i eventully got everything put together.
First wheel, shock, and spacer on!

Front is done in this picture. Rear hasnt been touched yet.

Then ladies and gents... i got the truck all done!





Truck doing what it does best



Thats it for now!

my god thats amazing

I have the same exact truck as you and might i say that looks amazing.
I sort of went with the same build however i went with the fat bobs kit and got some bilsteins 5100's on mine.

still have stock struts on the front which i need to replace ASAP but im thinking of replicating your build for my truck.

rubbing

I love the look of your set up, what offset and backspace are the wheels, do you encounter any rubbing at all at any time with the 32in tall tire?

Thx for the input. I found a website that said 4.5 on the backspace in case anyone else was curious. How do you like the dynapros?

For the money there great! Decent traction off road and tough looks. However they honestly don't like went concrete. If we get a decent ice down here they will get put to the test

Ah cool. Yeah they do look tough. Did you use the 1in spacers because of clearance, or you just wanted a wider look up front?
Im torn between the dynopro or the classic bf goodrich at's.
