Tacohounds insanely bland build

Hey guys, I havent made a build page yet so I thought I would start one.



it started with a K&N CAI, hankook AT/M's and preditor side steps.





Then I painted the centercaps, still need jack stands to paint the wheels.



next came the NFAB prerunner light bar with an OEM bug delector.



Sold the NFAB and bought a smittybuilt light bar, along with spyder halo headlights.





didnt like the spyder headlights so I did the BHLM and started my satoshi grill.











This is how she sits today, still waiting to start my job before I spring the money on the OME full lift kit. I also installed a URD short throw and an aero turbine 2525xl which sounds great

For the grille I followed the thread " my satoshi grille write-up " . Then I went to a local metal shop and found the perforated sheet. To attach it to the grille I drilled small holes around the grille frame and used small zip ties to attach the metal. I know that its a little ghetto but it makes it really easy to change to different metal sheets if I want to. I painted it but its starting to crack to I think I'm going to have to re paint it sometime. Hope this helps you out.

Nice looking truck!! What did you use to paint center caps and how did you mask off the Toyota symbol. I tried but gave up and just painted the whole cap. Used Plasti-dip so I can redo them if I want.

I used dupicolor primer and spray paint and it did take a while to tape off the symbol but I like how it came out but I think once I paint the whole wheel I will paint in the symbol.

I traded in my '09 Base DCSB MGM and sprung for this '11 Pyrite Sport DCSB, couldnt be more happy. I also went straight to the tire shop and put on 265/75/17 nitto terra grapplers.



Given the new color I decided to do something a little bit different. I painted the badges and headlights a sort of coyote tan. I put in the old lightbar with the 4 hella off road lights. To Finish this update I painted my wheels black. I will be doing lots more once I get some ore money.
