Mikes 07 Taco Build

ROUND 2. Got rid of the lime green, stickers, and spacers...

Mods so far:
-Weathertech floor mats
-Viper keyless entry system
-Satoshi grille
-Debadged
-Rebadged with "Taco" in black
-Removed mud flaps
-Horn relocation
-Painted radiator
-Falken 265/75/16
-MB wheels
-Bluetooth Grom for factory stereo
-5000k Retrofit Source Prectors
-Bilstein 5100's front and rear
-Eibach coils
-1'' Block for the rear
-PIAA off-road lights behind satoshi


For your viewing pleasure...

This is how it sits today



The day I bought it.


Alright the first thing I did was removed the hideous hub caps


Then, I ordered my grey weather tech floor mats. I don't have a pic, but im sure everyone knows what they look like here

Decided I should take it mudding with almost bald tires and factory everything turns out that's a good way to get stuck.



Next were the tires. I got my Falken 265/75/16 from discount shortly after buying the truck


Debadged and MB wheels from discount, not a good pic, but it's the only one I can find.


Ordered my Ebay black housing headlights. Turns out they aren't sealed well but that was an easy fix


Shortly after this I installed a bluetooth grom for my factory stereo. I found it online for about $110 and it was totally worth every penny. I got an aux port, USB port and of course bluetooth wireless syncing.

How it sat right after, with blacked out toyota emblem and me and a friend of mines BMX box project


Satoshi is easily my favorite mod and I got to buy one of these





The grill when it was plasti dipped instead of painted to match




Factory MB wheels vs Plasti dip



HID kit



Decided I need to show off the truck even when I'm not in it


Latest mod, traded my factory 07 tails for tinted 11s


Retrofit


BILSTEIN 5100's!!! FRONT AND REAR WITH EIBACHS!





Got rid of the tails and stickers and douchey stuff (flag at san luis pass doesn't count) and left her looking pretty






My friend and I showing off our retrofits

The plasta dip on your wheels looks great.....interested as to how well they will hold up over time.

Thanks man. I did it about 6 months ago and it's still holding up really well. I figured it would be peeling by now, but it looks pretty much just like it does in that picture

You should do it. It's an easy process and if you don't like it there is always removing it. I did mine while still on the truck. I jut put a bag over the brakes and started spraying the wheel

Thanks a lot man. I've had it for almost 3 years now though, so it's a pretty slow thing

Tinted the 3rd break light today, pretty terrifying thing actually but i think it came out pretty good.


I also removed the black "6.0" sticker and added a lime green fox sticker to match the "Taco" and my potential lime green and black theme. Not the best pictures because it's dark, but I'm sure there are more to come.

Washed the taco and put a few extra coats of plasti dip on the wheels. Oh and added the FJ Toyota badge.
What y'all think?

Thanks guys. Worked hard on her. I actually have a question for y'all though. How difficult is it to replace the ball joints on the upper control arm for these things?

Just a couple recent mods to update.

Mounted the PIAA's to fit the Toyota badge in between


Had a little photo shoot with some bro's after a little offroad fun


Got me a sweet high lift jack



Retrofitted an HID kit into y PIAA's. Sealed the crap out of them because I have condensation.



Removed Toyota badge and added yellow line-x'd fogs. HID's for those are still in the mail.
