So my truck is getting there. It has come quite a ways from stock, but I still have many plans.
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!
