skidooman's super lame slow build

truck is sold. Makes me sad. I am currently looking for a solid axle 4runner to wheel. Everything is parted out and sold except the weather tech mats, they are still for sale.

This is how it all started.

Truck is a 2011 double cab short bed. TRD off road, 4wd auto.
I bought it brand new August of 2011, but being a dealer transfer, it had 380 miles on it. I really like the truck in stock form. Its very capable for a stock rig. After putting the truck belly in the dirt going through a creek, and hitting countless rocks with the skid plate and LCAs I knew a lift would have to be done eventually. Late July 2012 some punk kid didnt yield to the right of way, which was me. Luckily I saw it coming and was able to get almost all the way stopped, which saved the side of the truck and he only grazed the front bumper. After the adjuster looking at it and confirming it needed a new front bumper. I decided to go the plate bumper route with the insurance money. This meant I would need a lift, how convenient. So thats where I am at for now. Stay tuned, it should get better!

I add pictures on Instagram too - skidooman56

As it looks today.

Good start bud! Like was previously said, you have to start somewhere! Very few people start off with the intentions to do what they end up doing. I never thought I'd have as much invested in this truck as I do but I have loved the experience and still have large plans for it!

Looks good.

They're a little louder than the rugged trails, and I lost about 2 mpgs with the lift and tires.

Got some snow over the last week or so. Probably about a foot, maybe 16". It got windy, so it's drifted pretty bad in spots. Went out and had some fun.

I wanted to be able to take it off easily. Plus I like the way the factory rails look without anything on them.

Yeah, it isnt friendly with the fuel consumption either. I actually just took the rack off. I'll only have it on when I need it.

8 thumb nuts, and carriage bolts. No tools required. Which is going to make me lock it down somehow when its on because it literally takes 5 minutes.
