My "LAST TRD" build

So finally got some free time to do a write up for what I call my Last TRD. I've had more cars than I can remember in my 20's and as I got closer to my 30's I spent more money than I can remember on various cars so i decided I needed to grow up and keep 1 car till I at least pay it off.

Sold this baby (would have been payed off long time ago if i kept it)

Got this next (lasted 4 months in it and lost my ass selling it)


This was next and built the ish out of it but made it too big for my daily driver


And this is me now (for a while too)


2012 Tacoma Sport 4X4 Long Bed
Paid $34.2K OTD
Mods to date roughly $10k

Suspension:
*Front: Icon standard coil overs with King's 650lb springs, Total Chaos upper control arms, 1/2 inch Toytec spacer on driver side to fix famous Taco lean
*Rear: Icon 2.5 piggyback reservoir shocks (normally used on 4Runners), ALL-Pro standard leaf pack, U-Bolt flip kit, ALL-Pro extended brake lines



Wheels/Tires:
*Walker Evans with simulated Beadlocks (all 5 rims) 17 X 8.5, 4.5 backspacing, and 0 offset
*BFG ALL Terrain 285/70/17
*ALL-Pro 1.25 wheel spacers in the front only


Armor:
Demello weld on sliders with no kickout
Road Armor rear bumper
Pelfrey skids (IFS, Transmission, Transfer case)




Engine:
AirRaid intake
TRD Supercharger
TRD exhaust
URD Stealth 2.85 pulley
URD Fuel Pump kit
TTC Performance oil catch can



Interior:
3M carbon fiber wrap on window switches only


Misc:
N-Fab tire carrier and Hi-lift jack with ATO bed mounts
BHLM
GRilleCraft upper mesh
Turned off DRL's to avoid melting the lenses
SlimCubby 4300 HID Kit






My wish list:
Projector Headlights
Pelfrey front bumper
Re-gearing front and rear to 4.88's

Good looking truck man! I'm jealous of your roof racks haha I need to get some soon.

I did some carbon fiber wrap on some interior parts a few months ago and I'm baffled at how smooth you got the wrap to tuck in under the window regulators. Mine looked so bad I cut it off at the bend.

a lot of cussing, time and burnt finger tips. I used a hairdryer and got the film as hot as I could for it to form on the contours. The spots in between the actual switches I did cut them up into small pieces

Question Guages?

Beautiful truck! Really like what you have done with it.

Curious about what guages you are using to monitor the SC and what kind of headaches you went through installing them? Do you like the mount you are using for the guages.

Also is the URD pully worth it on the SC?

installing the gauges was straight forward and about the only tough part was removing the pass. side exhaust manifold to have the bung welded in.

As far as the URD pulley I can't say for sure since the supercharger I purchased was used and already had the pulley installed so I have nothing to base off of

I'm only running a spacer on the driver side to fix the taco "lean" so I don't have to crank the shit out of the coil over. Even with the spacer I'm still almost 1/2 inch shorter compared to the pass. side

Appreciate that! Ya, the springs are 14'' so I wouldn't have to crank the coil overs so much
