Fire's Toy

Ok so this may take awhile for me to get through what has already been done but bear with me.

so in the beginning i brought home a brand new 07 double cab short bed in the sport trim. originally i built it up as a "street" machine with no intentions of even taking it on a dirt road. the original mod list included OME 885 coils with Nitro struts, total chaos UCA's, bilstein rear shocks and alcan AAL. also added the diff. drop spacers, extended rear brake lines, and 3 deg. rear axle shims. i mounted up a set of moto metal 951's in 18x9 wrapped in nitto terra grapplers. also had the front windows tinted down a bit, added the extang trifold tonneau cover, cleared the headlights, c2c headlight "eyelids", led 3rd brake light w/ smoked lens, new taillights, replaced all exterior bulbs with leds and sylvania silverstar ultra headlights and fog lights. also added a 5pc. billet grill.

and as for the interior. well first i added the sound system. started off with a kenwood 7019 dvd player with xm, and ipod adapter. this was coupled to a JL 500/1 amp driving two 10" elemental design 11kv subs, and an eclipse XA4000 4 channel amp driving pioneer premier TS-C720PRS componets up front and pioneer premier TS-D601P 2ways in the rear doors. speakers were mounted using Mr. Marv adapters. the entire cab recieved multiple layers of elemental design sound deadning. i then changed out all leds in the instrument cluster to blue and made the gauge needles white.





notice the white needle. this was done on all the needles.


stereo install.

now once i made it to this point i was satisfied with the truck. it remained untouched for several months. until it snowed last winter, and i decided to go play! well i ended up sliding backwards into a tree and smashing up the rear bumper. so since i dont believe in replacing weak parts with more weak parts i had a rear bumper custom built. it was a bolt on replacement that served very well!

this started the need to return to offroading. obviously some of the parts installed were "ideal" to be out on the trails with. first to go were the wheels and tires. i replaced them with Mickey Thompson classic locks in 16x8 wrapped in Mickey Thompson MTZ's in 285/75 R16. this setup is still on the truck today and has served extremely well in all conditions, and the wheels have stood up to quite a beating.




also note the new TRD decals courtesy of Sockmonkey!!!!
