Bomb.com Build

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:

Just threw on the new kicks!!








Suspension
Billstein 5100's front set @ 0
OME 885x
Top plate spacers
Rear leaf TSB
Toytec 1.5" AAL

Wheels & Tires
16 x 8.5 Level 8 Guardians
265/75/16 Falken Rocky Mountain ATs
TRD Center Cap Decals

Performance
K&N Air Intake

Exterior
Color matched Grille w/ Satoshi
Color matched eyelids
Lower Satoshi
Relocated horns
Painted black front valence
Sockmonkey bedside decals
GoPro Hero front grille mount
Yellow tinted fogs
DDM 55w HID 6000k
Black Tails
Plasti Dipped rear bumper
Debadged
"TACO" third brake light cover
BAMF bed rail tie downs

Interior
Center console LED light
Dual automatic up/down windows (pending install)
Carbon fiber wrap
Painted black window switch plastic surround

Future MODs:
UCAs
Projectors
LED turn signals/DTRL/Third brake/license plate
Upgrade the JBL package


The day I brought her home on 12/2010



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





Some mas pics:

From Tucson Fall Trail Run http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/ari...ml#post5802790













New addition to the Garage! 2013 Acura ILX with Phantom Black Chrome MBs






Here are a few videos from the GoPro on the MTB trails

Nice truck and bikes
I'm very interested in the dual auto windows. Been wanting a passenger auto down since I got my truck so I'll have to check back and see if you figure it out. PM me and maybe we can collaborate on the idea.

Thanks! I dont think it should be that hard to install the new switches, just splice and connect. I got the idea from here: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...h-windows.html.

I just havent gotten around to it and now with football starting.. But 'Ill let you know for sure once I install them.

Boardude,

Did you have any problems fitting your Trek 29er in the short bed? I'm getting ready to buy a short bed and was wondering how my Specialized StumpJumper 29er will fit.

It fit like a glove when I first got it and the tailgate kept it from bouncing around when closed. Since then I replaced the back tire with a beefier Kenda 29x2.2 so its a tighter fit. Usually I just leave the tailgate down
