2007 TRD Off Road 6-Speed

How she sits today:


Day I got her:



List of Mods:
- TRD Cold Air Intake
- TRD Cat-Back Exhaust
- Doug Thorley Long Tube Headers
- URD MAF Calibrator
- OME Front & Rear Shocks
- OME 885 Front Coils
- All Pro 3" Rear Leaf Pack
- Timbren Suspension Enhancement System (Bump stops)
- Tom Woods 1-Piece Drive Shaft
- Pro Comp Light Bar
- 2 KC Rally Driving Lights
- 1 KC Rally Off Road Light
- Graphite Painted TRD Off Road Wheels

- TRD Quick Shifter
- Extra D-Rings in Bed
- Black Head Light Mod
- Grillcraft Mesh Grille
- Uniden PRO358W CB Radio w/ Lil Wil Antenna

So about a month after I got her, I got rear/side ended by a Toyota Corolla (completely my fault thought). Her car was totaled while I had an ugly dent on my bumper for 5 months. I pocketed the insurance check and started shopping around for a used taco bumper. Here is what I found:



After I painted it with factory matched paint:


Back on the truck! Color matched too!:


After Pro Comp Light Bar + KC Rallys:







Still to come:

Me too, but Im not surprised that I blew first gear of my tranny, had to get it replaced the next day, haha, for free tho cuz it was under warranty and I did a real nice job cleaning my taco before taking her to the dealership.

And also, sorry if some of the pics arent showing up, imagecave is screwing with me and im trying to fix them. They might just fix themselves. If not, ima have to move everything to photobucket which is gonna suck.

Yea, according to the faq on imagecave, if my pics are viewed too many times in one day, they freeze it for the day, then unfreeze it the next day. I guess imagecave is gay that way. If i have time i'll gradually switch over to photobucket. Til then, keep checking back! Thanks for all the comments!
