reece54's swb 4x4 build!

thanks for stopping by. feel free to ask some questions and give feedback pos/neg
How it currently sits 3/24/2014



Alright so this is my first build thread so sorry if it turns out boring or shitty lol. I have owned a silver streak reg cab and a 91 toyota pick up 4x4. finally sold both and picked up this beauty!


MODS (in no particular order)
2.5 king rear shocks with resis
Deaver j66 pack
Afe pro dry s intake
32" light bar
4" LED fogs
285/70/17 goodyear duratracs
BHLM headlights
tinted tails
king 2.5 resi in front
total chaos UCAs
OEM roofrack
RuggedRadios race radio
Xtreme hilift jack
17" Alcoa forged "ivan stewart" wheels
LED map/dome lights
LED switchback DTRL from jumpers LEDs
LED license plate lights
LED bedlights made and installed with spencer

MODS waiting to come in/be installed
LED pods
40" lightbar
Front 4" fiberglass fenders
LSK suspension front bolt on 4x4 long travel kit


when i picked it up with 74,000 miles at carmax. it is a 2009 tacoma speedway blue sport package 4x4! I love this truck so damn much!




then took her on her first trip to big bear and went on a couple trails!



after i bought this truck i was BROKE.so i pretty much started of with some cheap mods.
plastidipped grill



then picked up two sets of HID's for headlight and foglights




got pretty bored one day and plastidipped all the emblems and wheels turned out better than i thought! Also added a flowmaster muffler and exhaust tip delete.



on may 5th took the lady to prom, well took it to the party bus for prom


and stupid me i never checked the reviews that ********** has had so apparently the lights are ass and had to deal with them for about a month to finally get my money back! DONT DEAL WITH THEM


finally got around to tinting my taillights IMO i think it came out pretty good!


took the truck out by silverwood lake BY MYSELF not a good idea but oh well shit happens haha




went out to go see the MORE 500 and watch engage race. they ended up doing pretty good :thumbs up:





then went to big bear and took it out onto a dry lake bed!



finally got around BHLM ing my headlights


ryan (manwithoutaplan) helped me instal my new front suspension! came out so beautiful


these fog lights took awhile to instal but in the end came out pretty good. Puts out ALOT of light!

Havent updated this in a while but the truck went through a couple of changes in the past month .
installed these sexy bedlights with the help of spencer


and also mounted my hi lift jack finally.... too bad i dont have rock sliders though


then bought my tires goodyear duratracs 285/70/17 and bought spidertrax spacers to help with the rubbing. love them so far but noticed i have to chop some of the frame off cause theres still a little rubbing

I actually got the fogs from this guy at the offroad expo and I think it was called offroad LEDs? But yeah he had light bars and everything but I saw these light and I thought maybe I can fit these in as fogs. Did some cutting and made brackets for it and bam!
How I mounted the light bar I took out the crash bar and made two holes on each side. My light bar had two bolts coming down from the bottom and just bolted it through the holes. Pretty easy.

For masking off the line and circle? Or for actually tinting them.

I like the new rims! And I'm also interested in the method you used for tinting, and masking off. Thanks!

For the masking out the circle and the lline I used contact paper and traced it on the taillight. Cut it out and stuck the contact paper on the parts I didn't want tinted and for the tinting it was pretty straight forward Just sprayed three coats of nightshade and came out great
