Mountain Man Limousine-NativeTaco's Build

I will try to keep a recent picture of the truck or something I have done to it here:

New bumper, 886s, just trying to get the HC bumper done...


Moody Hill Quarry



Moab













Recent







The Story


I have a cabin in the Northern CO Rockies and will spend most of my time on slightly milder trails en route to lakes and camp sites. That is most of the reason I bought this truck, to take the fam up to remote, beautiful places for camping and fishing. But I do like to go out for day trips where I can push the truck more too.



New to do list:

Final touches to ARB bumper install

Repaint armor

Install rock lights



After really thinking about what I wanted to do first, I started a new list that wouldn't add so much weight to the truck. The lift was a surprise but happened because my beautiful wife was generous, and because I sold my first ever build: an '02 Civic Si with +/-$7k in mods which made it possible to get all the other stuff that comes along with lifting a truck. I also got some rock lights recently. Hope to put those on and post pics in the next couple weeks.



Anyway, the mod list:



Suspension:

OME 886 coils

OME Nitro Charger/90000 shocks

Dakar Leaf Packs

Light Racing UCAs



Body/Armor:

ARE Topper

ARB front bumper

BAMF LCA Skids

BAMF Diff Skid

ATO front, tranny and t-case skids

Mr. Fab (my bro and I) sliders

Mr. Fab HC rear bumper



Accessories/Engine:

ARB CKMA12 Compressor

ARB Rear Locker

Rigid Industries Dually Floods

K&N CAI

Warn m8000

Hi Lift mounted to bed rails

QuickFists with Shovel, Flashlight, tree saw, OR base for HiLift

Ammo can with emergency supplies (needs to be mounted)



Wheels/Tires

16x8 Konig Countersteer Offroads

255/85/16 Bf Goodrich KM2

Full-size spare on factory steel



Etc.

Midland 75-822 portable CB

3' Hustler antenna

Satoshi Grill

Diff breather Mod

Dipped Badges

Custom bedside decals (made by TW member teamhypoxia)

Shackle hitch

Hi lift with OR base

Toyota bed mat

Weathertechs

Tailgate lock

Exhaust trim

Quickfists



Goodrich stainless brake lines (not installed because my OEM lines were on so tight that stripping may have been a problem. Don't really need them yet anyway. Got them through a group buy so I may sit on them, may sell 'em)







Here is how she got started:







She is coming along well, considering I haven't had her for a year yet. By the time school gets out I will have a truck that is ready for a trip to Moab, even if I have to sit out on the more difficult trails. I will definitely be putting her to work in Colorado and Wyoming taking my wife and our baby girl camping next summer. That is most of the reason I bought this truck, to take the fam up to remote, beautiful places for camping and fishing.

Does anybody know where my rims came from (they were on it when I bought it) and what style topper I have? I think its a z-series, but not sure.

I hope that taking her wheelin' will show her why the money will be well spent and fun for the family! It should be easier to swallow than the $900 exhaust for my sportbike I was looking at anyway.

Anyway, here are my plans for the summer:
Bilstein 5100 height adjustables
Eibach CoilOvers
Bushings
Toytech AAL
DIY paint grill
Bed Lights
???-insert ideas from peanut gallery here (feel free to send donations to the truck fund

Here is how she is getting started:

When I first got her!

With the topper...

Does anybody know what these wheels came off of? Or are they some cheapo generic rim?
Tint the front windows
cut down the rear mud flaps 4 to 5 inches
oh and buy my smoked front headlights and you will be golden!!!

I'm in a similar boat where money is tight so my extra money goes to......savings! Haha so I can do it right the first time and not spend money twice on stuff I'll have to replace later. I plan on having armor all around with a topper and icons all around as well.

You could paint your pinch weld...

It's the seam that runs along the bottom of the cab, paint it black for a cleaner look.
search "paint pinch weld" for more info.

If you like black wheels, you can paint or plasti dip them.

paint or plasti dip badges, or debadge.

I trimmed down my antenna, reception is still good, just looks better.

just a few fun cheap and easy ideas.

I used scissors, really sharp big scissors, then hand sanded with 60 and 100 grit to clean it up, very easy.

I was just reading around on the forum and was looking at another members leaf pack when they took it out and it looked to have three long leafs leaves whatever and one short one. I looked at the ones on my truck and I only have two longs and the short. Does this mean the previous owner didn't do the leaf spring tsb? If so, will I just want to replace the whole leaf pack? Sounds good to me, but the wife is gonna provide some resistance...
