Brandon's "I have no idea what I'm doing" build

A little background:

I bought this truck in April 2010 with 34k miles on it after I totaled my '97 f150.

It's a 2007 Tacoma Sport Double cab and came with a bunch of upgrades when I bought it from the dealer. These include: lift, wheels/tires, and nfab steps.

I'm not the most educated guy when it comes to trucks, so I'm ashamed to admit that I don't know as much as I should about my truck. I'm not sure what kind of lift it has on it, or even what else what does to the suspension.

But, I recently started really getting into modding it so here's where I am today

First thing I did was add an old bull bar that I had, which will soon hold 2 Hella 700's.


Then i debadged and blacked out the emblems:



And here's where it sits today:



Next up:
  • Black weathertechs
  • Wet Okole (I actually bought some from a guy on here, but I just realized they won't fit my truck because I'm an idiot , so if anyone needs the a set of front black/charcol Wet Okole's for an SR5 bucket seats, let me know!)
  • Bushwacker fender flares
  • LED taillights

What model Pioneer and how much, if you don't mind? Looks good along with the rest of the truck. As far as your lift goes, I have no idea at all but the shocks look like they're still the stock bilsteins. No labels on the coils or spindles?

SPH-DA100, I paid $320 on Amazon refurbished.

And nope, no labels. I'll figure it out eventually.

My double din in my old truck was from amazon reurbished, had it for 3 years and not problems. It was a kenwood. Only thing I can think of as of now for your coils, they may either be OME (old man emu) or Eibach's considering they're black in color, just a guess. I'm sure more people will chime in and be able to tell you what it is more than I can (still new to tacoma's and learning as I go as well)
