I've been debating starting a build thread for some time now, and I finally think I am ready. Gotten a lot of great ideas off the site, and looking forward to feedback from all of you!
I'm doing my build slowly and very budget-conscieous due to the fact that most of our money goes toward the new baby. This may be the slowest build in the history of slow builds, but stick with me because I have high hopes!!
My 2011 Tacoma DC Pre-Runner
The day I drove it off the lot:
Drove down to the lake today to take some pics as it sits in this overcast North Alabama weather: (lake views provided by Lake Guntersville, AL)
Haven't done a lot to it yet, but I started, which is a step in the right direction!
So far, I've:
Debadged and took off the bedside TRD sticker
Painted the Engine Cover (Planning on going back and painting the rest of it a glossy black and clearcoating the red):
I also put new homemade bed cleats on. An Eye screw with two bolts and two washers. Works great! I have yet to take a picture of them. Soon, though... soon...
Future Mods Include:
New Tires (coming soon)
New Stereo & Speakers (looking at this stereo)
Lights in the Bed's Storage Compartments
Hood Scoop (Sport Hood)
Flowmaster American Thunder Exhaust
K&N Cold Air Intake
WeatherTech Low Profile Window Deflectors
Roll-up Tonneau Cover
And probably a lot more.... haven't 100% decided what all is going to happen.
Look forward to hearing from everyone!
