Toyotacrawler's Not a Crawler Build

I figured I would start a build thread just to keep track of what I have done to my Tacoma. It's not a lot, but you gotta start somewhere.
I bought a 2010 Double Cab TRD Sport PreRunner new in August of 2010. Here is a picture the day I drove her off the lot.


As she sits now:







Day One:


Mods include:

Suspension:
Bilstein 5100 adjustable shocks up front set to 1.75"
TSB Rear Springs
Stock Rear Bilstein shocks. <---Next in line to be upgraded.

Wheels & Tires:
16x8 Graphite Gunmetal Konig Countersteer Offroad's. Thanks to Dustin from FNWheels.
LT265/75R16 BFG All Terrain TA KO's

Performance:
K&N Drop in Filter....that is all....

Audio:
Bone Stock.

Other:
Blacked out the badges. At first I used black spray paint for plastic then applied a coat of clear. The clear is cracking and flaking off so I'm in the process of redoing this using High Temp black paint. It has the appearance of flat black once dry. So far I've done the Tacoma badges on the side.

Weathertech floor mats. These things are friggin awesome. Props to my awesome wife for a kick ass birthday present.

Toyota Bed Mat. A fantastic purchase to keep your cargo from sliding all over the dang place.

Anti-Theft Tailgate Hose Clamp Device.

Relocated horns.




Future Modifications in numerical order:
1. Matching Spare Tire and Rim

2. Bed Rack.
PURCHASED I bought the All Pro Weld together Pack Rack. Great product and a very nice kit!


3
.Tepui Autana Roof Top Tent. PURCHASED Direct from Tepui Tents! Great doing business with them! Fast shipping!






The list will most likely grow after the previous mentioned items are obtained. This is it for now.

Yea that would not look good at all for me haha.
In all seriousness though I do like that look. I definitely need to look into that for the future.

Cool thanks man! If the high temp spray paint fades or flakes I'll give the Plasti-dip a go.

Nice! I hope I can find a deal like that. Gotta get a Bed Rack and Roof Top Tent first though. Dang, I need to win the lottery....

Everything looks good other than the hood scoop, you should give it to me. Definately steal ajohnsons's bumper. A black bumper would really add to the look of your truck.

Haha thanks man! I like that ARB you're sporting. What's the weight on that thing? Rough estimate...

Today I cleaned the throttle body and decided to buy a drop in K&N Air Filter. We shall see if the MPG's improve a little.

This week our Tepui Autana RTT and All Pro Pack rack came in. Just have to weld up the Pack Rack and paint it. I hope I can get it done soon.

That would be awesome! I'll gladly pay for whatever she can bring back! One day I will attend a match at Anfield. Distant future...but one day.
