REDTRD's Build

Finally gonna get this thing started and hopefully add to it more and more.
As it sits today! 10/28/2013






Day 1 happy new Taco owner!




First official "mod"



Then came the plasti derp and also removed factory side steps




Started removing the as much "chrome bling" as I could added a satoshi grill from Jim (river rat 69) also added the laminx yellow covers to the foglights






Got lucky and found a guy on craigs that swapped me wheels for nothing just a straight up trade




Got in on a group buy for retrofit headlights and with some help from guys on here was able to get it done. By far my favorite thing I've done to any of my vehicles.








Installed a pioneer double din with sony backup camera very nice for helping hook up trailers.

I wanna say I paid between 250-300 for the grill color matched and satoshi + shipped to me. PM river rat 69 (Jim) he does great work.

Finally got my 5100's from christmas installed and got alignment done. She looks all level now. Loving the feel of the shocks.
Before shot

After shot

Front shocks

Rear shocks question are the boots supposed to mashed that much on the
rears?



Now to talk the wife into letting me get new tires, I'm really hating these 245 Dunlops the seem like they never ending tread lol

I don't think so... my skyjackers did that on my 4Runner.... so I ziptied the rubber boot to the shock body.... never had that problem again. Try finding a Ziptie that is the same color as the boot.... so it's not as noticeable.
