Ironman_Jon's Build.

Well its about time that I start my somewhat build thread.....

Well my truck started as most do a 2009 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner Sport that was bought for my wife. After a year she grew out of the truck and forfeited it to me and that's where the journey begins.

First mod on the table ditch the stock rims and tires.


I hit up a company called HellBentSteel and went with a 3in spacer lift


Got froggy one Saturday and started to hack up my grill and experiment with fiberglass for the first time. Outcome satoshi...wife then bought me some 7in Kragen HIDs. Also painted the lower valance.



Added HIDs to the headlights and fogs. Completed fog light mod.


Got bored of the PNP HIDs and picked up some Honda S2000 projectors.


Picked up a BajaBumpers front bumper

After rubbing issues Glassworks fenders were added


5 55w HIDs added on a custom rack made by Baja Racing Supply.




Bedsides came next


New bumper made to somewhat protect the fiberglass.



After a couple months everything came off to be painted.


Back from paint.


Quick picture


After hitting a donkey a couple months ago I finally got around to fixing the shroud that came off.


Readjusted head lights.


Long travel tear down



Camburg Lt on.


Don't mine the zip ties its temp til I get the resi mounts mounted.

Don't go wheeling by yourself/one truck. I got stranded at picacho for a couple hours because my battery holder came loose and my battery cracked on some small whoops.

Do you still have that tacoma muffler by chance?

Front end broken down for the Camburg Lt. Goes in next month for the DMZ SUA, bedcage, Camburg spindles, gussets, regear and bigger tires amongst a couple other things.

Still debating on swapping the rear end out for a little wider Ford 9". Thoughts?
