Previous owner pic (contributed by VegasTaco08):


Here she is the very first day I got her at Findlay Toyota in Henderson, NV.




Me and the Taco on our first desert run by the railroads off of Wagonwheel Dr. Henderson, NV.



HID's installed in place of the stock bulbs and black tinted the tails. First mods.




Installed the K&N cold air intake. Noticed better throttle response, small HP and mpg gain.



Invested in an X2 Power Deep Cycle/Dual Purpose battery to help handle all of my accessories.



Added in a Flowmaster 40 muffler.






Got my FOX 2.5 coilovers with TC UCA's and 2.0 rear resi's installed!






Installed the LEDGlow interior lighting in blue!




Installed the BHLM lights and rattle canned the grille from stock gray to flat black.



Put the GoRhino Dominator II steps on.



She's finally starting to come together. Ditched the 17" wheels w/ Bridgestone Dueler Revo's and swapped for some new 16" Moto Metal 951's w/ BF Goodrich T/A KO 285/75/16. Also, added the ToyTec 2" AAL.



Installed a new Pioneer AVH-P3100 DVD double DIN head unit and added a Cobra radar detector.




Two 12" Kickers and Sony Xplod 800 watt amp fits snug behind the seats.




Replaced the crappy stock bumper with a custom off-road bumper built by Fuel Forged Fabrications. Painted the skid plate white and mounted the Rugged Ridge red ring HID lights. Cranked the coilovers to level with the 2" AAL.




Got rid of the ToyTec AAL and finally got a hold of some Deaver J66 leaf springs and now she runs the desert like a dream!



Played around with some white and black Plasti Dip. Derp'd the fuel door black, front emblem white and MotoMetal 951 machined accents & hub caps white.









CoverKing seat covers in blue.



Added a custom TRD bedside decal.



Swapped old OEM taillights for the 09+ OEM LED taillights. Rear turn signals and reverse light bulbs are LED making a full LED setup.



Activated my daytime running lights with the DRL kit from TRDparts4u and put OEM fog lights into the bumper.



Got Maxtrac spindles for Christmas installed by Matt from MCM Fab!



After getting 4" up front from the spindle lift, I decided to revamp the rear setup! Swapped my standard Deaver J66 pack for a custom Deaver 11 leaf pack (Thanks to TW: mandzach) giving me 3" of lift in the rear. To compensate for the lift, I swapped my old FOX 2.0s for a pair of All Pro's FOX 2.0 extended rear resi's with adjustable compression and 9.5" of travel!




Upgraded to a Raptor style Satoshi super white with black "TOYOTA" letters and HomerTaco's MX mesh. Thanks to TW member Dwreck!



Got the letters powder coated white and remounted them to finish the Satoshi.





CREE Amber LEDs are installed into the fogs.



Bumper modified and 30" LED Bar mounted!





Thanks for checking out my build! Let me know what you guys think.
Special Thanks:
VegasTaco08 (Austin), MOT (Daniel), TheRedTac0 (Chris),
AMH3RST (Mitch), M C M (Matt), DWreck (Derek),
mandzach (Charlie)

Awesome build! As the previous owner of this truck, I must say you've made it look more amazing than even I could have imagined. Just wanted to include a pic to show it's humble beginnings, and how far it's come

Looks good bro. Did you rattle can it? Hey, what happened to the BBT sticker! You know I've got the die cut ones now; let me know if you want one.

Thanks man! Yeah I rattle canned it with some white engine enamel gloss automotive paint, hence the removal of the sticker. I might be interested in a die cut one. Do you have them in black or white?

I wouldn't put the new one on your skid. Back window is where everybody is putting theirs'. I'd recommend putting it there.
