Hola Amigos! I'm fairly new to TW but I have done a lot since so I thought I would make a build thread for my 2011 Timberland Mica DC Prerunner
Everyone refers to her as "TÁCO" (take-oh) and there is a story behind this.. A bunch of us were gearing up to head out to tailgate for the UofA game and as we were packing up the truck one of our buddies asked “Whats a TÁCO?” but pronounced take-oh. None of us knew what he was talking about so we thought he was drunk already and continued packing the truck. When he asked it again, we realized he was referring to the “TACO” emblem that I have on the grille. So we all rolled with it I and I informed him that is what the Tacomas are called in Canada since they like to go oot and aboot in their TÁCOs. After a few hours of letting it settle in with him, we proceeded and continue to give him shit how he missed that day in second grade where they taught how to sound out letters that words are compiled of.
Now on to the build. This is how she currently sits:

What goes better with a Truck than a Dog!!!
The first thing I did was put in the K&N Air Intake - Dont notice any gas milage difference but the response time and sound are phenomenal!
Had to change out the stock grille with a Grillcraft
Writeup for a 2011 grille cut away and install - http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...tall-pics.html
Next I installed the Billstein 5100's and set the front @ 2.5"
Didnt like the "Bro-Lean" so quickly fixed that with the Rear leaf TSB, a Toytec 1.5" AAL and some bigger tires
To capture all of my adventures, I put a mount above the front valence for the GoPro
Just finished the Satoshi Mod on a color matched grille I'm stoked how it came out!!
Then shortly I did the lower Satoshi
Added some new tails and plasti-dipped the back bumper to phase out the chrome
Then came the Level 8 Guardians! I added the TRD center cap
