Jermoids - 2012 white dbcb build



14 June 2013, took the bull bar and step sides off to sand them and spray in boxliner them and realized i like my truck better without them.






-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

june 3rd 2013



as of may 22 2013











as of jan 18th 2013, smittybilt stepsides, antennax shorty antenna and of course my new MKW M19 satin black wheels!!











--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

24 Nov 2012, plasti dipped wheels, hood scoop and front toyota emblem...





as it sits today, after 1" blocks adden in the back, 15 Oct 2012................






Hey everyone, here's my build so far.

It's not a monster truck but exactly what i wanted.

Bilstein 5100's all the way around, fronts set at 1.75" on stock springs.
1" readylift blocks in the back.
265/70/R17 duratracs on stock trd sport wheels.

I love the look, and the feel. Drives straight and smooth.

Tires fit in perfect with no rubbing at all, anywhere.

I know it's not huge, but i still feel like i want to drive over stuff now!

Here it is the day i bought it, Feb 2012....









And here it is after installing the 5100's and the new tires, Oct 13th 2012....










I was debating painting or plasti dip'ing the wheels but im kind of liking the way it looks now. i was also thinking some spacers to have the wheels stick out a little more but im not too sure.
thoughts?

Man I love white Tacos, but my wife doesn't so we have a MGM. If you plan on painting other stuff (badges, BHLM, etc.) I would do the wheels too but hey, it's your truck. I personally like the look of the spacers and will be doing it to mine when I get meatier tires and a lift. Keep up the good work.

thanks, white has grown on me the past few years, i find it stays cleaner longer if you can believe that!? i had a black tacoma a couple years ago, and i just couldn't keep it clean and you could see every single scratch, plus waterspots like crazy if you didn't dry it after washing.
i like the look of the black wheels but i think i'll wait to get a nice set instead of painting or dip'ing my stocks.

so after installing the 5100's all the way around (fronts set at 1.75") i thought the back end was sitting low. it wasn't, measured perfectly level, but to my eye it looked off. i decided after a lot of research on this site and others, that i would put 1" blocks in the back since i couldn't find anyone with any types of issues with a small 1" block. i think it looks perfect now.
new pics with 1" blocks at the top of my build post...

Looks great! Paint your pinch welds, it'll look great (our white trucks show it a lot) and it's super easy

thank you, and you're right, they should.

i decided to get them from a place called essex out of richmond b.c.
not american pricing but still saved $200 from what they were going to charge me around here.

no vibes what so ever, i just drove about 400kms last night between 110-120 and it drove dead straight and smooth. the tires are a little louder but that's it.

You got it! I am probably going to do mine today if I get my lazy ass out of the house. Are you wanting to keep the chrome or go black eventually? I would have definitely got the dclb if it was available in a 6 speed

Go Jets go!
Like the truck man, you and I are heading in the same direction.
I also have a 2012 Super White DCLB. And I'm also from Winnipeg, but moved to AB four years ago.

Keep up the good work.

i was thinking of blacking it out but so many people are doing it now, im not sure. i like the look since adding the tires and the little bit of a lift, im actually thinking of maybe going the crome direction, we'll see.

i haven't seen the nitto's in person, i love the duratracs though, i think from what i have seen on here, you'll be happy either way

thanks,
the settings are 0 / .85" / 1.75" / 2.5"
mine are 1.75" on the stock coils and the ride seems just as good as stock.
