ARMOR:

MISC:
-Trailer harness relocation bracket
-Diff breather mod (relocated to tail light)
-Hose clamp tailgate security mod
-Exhaust cutoff right behind last hanger

One day after purchase:


Added Clear Bra, OEM Hood Protector, Tint, OEM Roof Rack, and trimmed the mud flaps 3".


05/15/13 - Just picked up my OME lift. I chose to do the 884x coils and the TSB AAL (even though I don't have the TSB). I wanted to have a noticeable lift, but didn't have the money to get UCA's that I would need for the 2.5" or higher lifts, and as much as I would love 33" tires, I couldn't justify the loss in performance for what I use the truck for 95% of the time. I also shied away from the 5100 route because I didn't want to sacrifice ride quality by preloading my progressive Off Road coils. I picked them up for about $800 from ToyTec assembled and will do the install in a couple of weeks when I have the time.


5/23/13 - Picked up a color matched grille! Took about 5 minutes to swap out and I'm pumped with how it really cleans up the front of the truck. I also snapped a couple of photos of the debadge and the derped front Toyota emblem:



6/1/13
Finally got around to installing the suspension! I went from 20" (hub to fender) up front to 22". Love the way the truck looks and performs. Smooth, but firm ride (very close to stock, but a tighter feeling). I was able to get the lift done, as well as swapping my old stuff onto my wife's 4Runner with a few friends in just a little over 3 hours. Before the lift I had the 15-25 mph shudder, but after the lift the truck is smooth as glass! That was a very unexpected surprise!





6/20/13
Found a local guy who wanted to do a straight swap: his MGM bumper for a chrome bumper! It took us about an hour to complete the swap. You can also see the trimmed rear flaps in these pictures. No more white 4x4.



6/24/13
Fabbed up some trailer harness relocation brackets.

Side picture:


7/11/13
Did the rear diff breather mod and the hose clamp tailgate security mod! Ran my diff breather up to my back left tail light.



8/20/13
Got wheels and tires installed!


10/31/13
Picked up a new A.R.E. CX topper. I'd searched craigslist on a nearly daily basis since I bought the truck with no success, so I finally gave in before winter. Carpeted headliner, 12V LED interior light, sliding windows, pet screens, and LED tail light.


7/27/14
Finally found the time to drill out the frame holes to completely bolt up the sliders. It was actually a lot more effort that I had anticipated, but fortunately I'm done with it. I'm not sure if I'd do it the same way again, but it is nice to know that I could take them off if I ever wanted to sell the truck/part it out.


FUTURE MODS:
-Full set of skid plates
-Leather/heated seats or Clazzio Covers
-Topper Rack

Thanks for taking a peek, and I'll keep this updated as best I can!

I will use this post for action shots.

6/15/13 - Slaughterhouse Gulch
Made a trip out with a buddy of mine and had a blast!

Quick posing shots on a rock just off of the trail:




There was a really long, steep, silty, rocky climb that we were checking out. I'm pretty far up to the top on the right side, that's my buddy on the left:

Picture of the trucks from the bottom of the climb:

Towards the top of the climb:


Random wheeling shots:





8/25/13
Made another trip out to Slaughterhouse and got a few shots!












9/28
Ran Barbour Fork with teamhypoxia (Eric). It's a beautiful trail that's really pretty close to town that I will definitely be visiting again. It took us a little bit under 4 hours to complete with a couple of short stops.

It doesn't take long for the obstacles to start:

There's an open field a little ways into the trail that we found some horses in. A few were pretty interested in us:

My worst trail damage of the day came here, when one bit the truck:

In the same open space, there was a HUGE rut caused by the runoff from all the rain that we've been getting. We straddled it for a good while before it became too wide and precarious, so we went around:

We started up a pretty fun rock climb about half way through the trail:

Got a little wheel-stand:



Got a little posing in:


One more shot of the guy that bit my truck:

Thanks, Kelly! Yours was another truck that I've drooled over plenty when making my decisions on my mod list.

Thanks! I think it looks a lot sharper for sure. The wheels are just the OEM TRD Off Road wheels.

Good looking truck. I have been thinking about the same lift. Did you experience any different mpg from the lift. It looks like you still have stock tires.

My commute is 85 miles a day and I'm not wanting to mess my mpg up. I can get 21-22 all day long on the hwy.
