MadToy build

Truck is For Sale!
70k Miles
$23,500

Thought I'd start a build thread to try and keep track of what I've done, and what I would like to do

Truck
'07 Tacoma TRD Off-Road DCSB
Bought in November 2011 with 42k on the odometer, bone stock

Suspension
Front - Radflo 2.5 with 700lb. Eibachs
Rear - OME Dakar leaf pack with Fox 2.0 10" shocks
Icon Tubular Upper Control Arms

Armor
BudBuilt front/mid/tranny/gas tank skids
All Pro kickout sliders
BAMF LCA skids
Brute Force Fab HC rear bumper, custom built to match cut fenders

Recovery
Undercover Hidden Winch Mount System
Warn M8000 with synthetic rope
Typical straps/ropes/hi-lift/etc...

Wheels/Tires
16x8.5 level 8 ZX
315/75R16 Goodyear Fierce Attitude (that's right)

Drivetrain
Stock 4.0
TRD Supercharger with URD 2.85 pulley
Custom Magnaflow muffler (for clearance, not sound)
Doug Thorley Y-Pipe - also for clearance
4.56 Nitro Gears
ARB mini compressor
ARB front locker

On Order
????

Pics/video

As it sits today....





Don't have any pics when stock - but here's the closest to it. Grillcraft grill and 3" OME lift installed



Rear Locker override switch



Black Rock Yuma wheels and 285/75R16 Goodyear Duratracs installed, along with All Pro Sliders - and skids at the time



Installed the Undercover Hidden Winch Mount System with Warn M8000 and synthetic rope and custom shackles



Ran into this guy on my first trip to Richland Road, and thought he was a bit nuts....



Then proceeded to do this (strike 1 for the Duratracs)



Then a month after replacing that one (thanks Discount Tire! ) Strike 2...



So I got these - and HATED them!! Loud, and uncomfortable ride.



Tried the pizza cutter 255 KM2's. Worked great, but on the 8" rim, they always looked like they were about to pop the bead on off camber situations



Put my first dent in it leaning it against a tree at the top of Kodak Rock at Uwharrie NF.



Switched to some 285/75R16 Falken Rocky Mountains. Fantastic tire! Very quiet and smooth, and great in all but the muddiest conditions



Cut 3" out of the fenders and flares in preparation for some 315/75R16 MT/R Kevlars



Cut the body mount and flattened the pinch weld. Still need to finish boxing the body mount



Brute Force high clearance



Needed a little help pulling the travel trailer



Brute Force plate bumper to replace the UHWMS



That's all for now.

Thanks!

I'm waiting for the scratch guards still for the ZX wheels. Should add some nice protection in the rocks. The real nice thing about these wheels though, is that they hide the valve stem behind the lip of the wheel, which should also help in the rocks.

Actual loaded measured height of the MTR is 34.4". That's right at 2.5" taller than the 285 Falkens.

No wheel spacers. 16x8.5 wheel with 4.5" backspace. No rubbing so far on the street, but I can see an area by the bottom corner of the pinch weld that I'll have an opportunity for improvement with....

I've gotta take a little bit more out of the bottom rear corner of the cab mount. A little too close for comfort. Also rubbing the frame and UCA'S when at full lock. Not that big a deal but I might try some 1/4" spacers I've had sitting around for a year.....

I would almost rather limit the turning radius if that was possible. It only hits at the very extreme end of the lock.

I've gotta get it to The Gulches to really find out where else it will rub..
