Kappes03's Storm Trooper..ish Build

Finally starting a build thread per a few requests haha.
2009 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road 6 speed manual

How she sits today



Day I brought her home



Sitting next to my 2003 Honda CBR 600 RR that ended up getting stolen one random night 



Added 275/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers with KMC Revolvers and Tuff Country spacer plus AAL





Up in San Isabel near my dad’s place



Kingston’s Peak



Added a couple Hella Rallye’s 4,000 mounted on CrossFab light bar. Wired directly to the battery with a switch inside



Pioneer head unit with Nav and Scan Gauge II



The switch is for the Hella’s



Painted the grill flat black







Taco’s on the beach 2011



Sometime prior to sliders



First set of sliders was done by a guy locally. Cut me a pretty good deal since I asked for a kick-out and he didn’t do it



Heading out camping



The tent Gary whipped out stumbling around



Waldorf Mine



Toytec Coil Overs added, still have the same AAL



Changed Hella Covers so I didn’t have to keep taking them off



Anytime fog mod



Arctic Yellow Fogs



285 Duratracs



Couple weeks later… fortunately it was a half inch screw



BAMF Rear Diff Skid





BAMF Sliders



Out with the old



In with the new



Hi-Lift mount, ordered a 48”, received a 60”, I’ll take it. Mounted on ATO bed mount

Also BAMF sticker





Mounted the CB here, little radio shack cheapy. Weather Tech Floors mats and Wet Okley Seat Covers which I don't have a pic of are also installed



2011 MG Grill








To be continued….

Don't worry it will get there and 2 weeks later you will be re-assigned to the South Pole.
