Below are the specs of my taco:
  • Make: Toyota
  • Model: Tacoma
  • Year: 2013

  • Type: Limited
  • Bed: Short
  • 4x4: Yes
Below are photos of the truck as I got it new from the dealer (Before any mods).

Project: WeatherTech Side window deflectors (In channel), Hood Deflector and removing the wheel flaps

These were easy to put in and make the truck look so much better.

* I have not installed the Hood Deflector yet because I am waiting to see if I can trade my hood for a Scooped one first.

Projects Suspension: Bilstein 5100 Front and Rear with OEM 4 Leaf Pack, Firestone Ride-Rite and On-Board Air

Front and Rear 5100 is done. While I was down there I also tightened up the U-Bolts to 75 ftlbs since it was about 30ish when I tested it with my digital torque

Project: Satoshi Grille

This was a PITA and is not near as easy as the 2011 and older grille version.

But it looks nice to me and it took me about 4 days (working on it about 2 hours a day)

Project Lighting: FX-R Stage III Retrofit, Color Matched Head Light Mod, Front Hella 500 HID, Rear Bed Lights

Converting the Hella's over to HID's was not that hard, basically I took a 6000K H3 HID Kit and placed it into the Hella Housing with only a little "Molding" of the back Hella with a heat gun to fit the back of the bulb.

* The FX-R Stage III Retrofit and CMHLM is not complete yet.

Project: ScanGauge 2

I am testing locations to see where I want to place this thing, First I am testing on the right side of the steering wheel under the coin/key/what ever holder that is.

* Update: I have now moved it to under the left front tray to the top right headliner. This will be its permanent location

I think it “closely” looks like leather and everyone who has been in my truck so far said Wow Leather Seats and didn’t have a clue and it "appears" to be durable so far LOL
