Hritz's budget build!

Hello everyone im new to the forum. My name is Trevor and about 4 months ago i got my tacoma! I plan on doing as many mods as i can but the budget is a bit strict...

- 2006 Tacoma access cab prerunner with TRD Sport Package.

- Black rear tail lights.

- Nitto Terra graplers 275/65/r18's.

- Aftermarket wheels (came on truck not sure what they are).

- Front leveling kit.

- Westin GenX nerfbars.

- Rocksford fosgate 12'' p3 sub with a 1200 watt amp.








Started on my badges!



Used this to cut the tape on the back! Its 2 deep sockets with braided line tied through it..












Finished outcome..Not too bad i dont think!








painted my caliper's to add some extra HP!!





also added some new door speakers!!



Then some new dome lights that are way more blue then i thought they would be!




Then a new Pioneer 4500 head unit!
-And a backup camera for shits and giggles!





And also put in some new weather techs!!



Next, the hood assist from redline!



also made a washable cabin air filter!!!



Then came plastidip!!!
-First was the trim inside!









Then the lower valence!!
-First coat!



Second coat



Third coat



The finished product!!

Thanks guys! im just trying to keep simple...i mean im not about to buy a super charger and a new set of wheels and tires haha, im just gonna skip along at a slow pace and pick items up when i can afford it! i just cant decide what i want for my truck...im stuck between the avid light bar or the black westin bull bar to go on the front on my truck?? any suggestion?

i love my truck to death and wouldn't trade it for anything but i would really love to have 4wd. i looked around to see if there was any threads, and there was accouple but perrty much everyone said that its just easier to sell the truck and buy a 4wd, but i seen were most people said it would be easier to convert 4wd if you did solid axle,is this true??

Light bars IMO are a waste of money. They'll also help magnify the amount if body damage in a fender bender.

I think it would be a lot cheaper to simply buy a 4x4 and build it up, as opposed to having to do a ton of modification, fabrication, and purchase extra driveline and suspension components to make a 2wd into a 4wd.

Bull bars offer no protection, FYI. They also decrease your approach angle and limit ground clearance. I would save your money.

Bro, look at my bumper compared to stock. Stock was a huge piece of plastic $hit. My plate is damned sexy.

Or if you like a more petite bumper, check out the tube bumpers all the Cali guys are running.

Careful, I think the bug has already bitten you.

If your going to keep your truck on pavement you'll be able to make a lot of cool less pricey mods over time that'll really set your truck apart from the crowd.

If you're thinking about the trail, rock climbing, or the dunes you should think about a second job Building up a rig that'll take the punishment is costly.

Very unique! They could really give your truck a clean look. Have you tried photoshopping them onto your truck to see?

"too DUB" might have been a better choice. but you won't have little rubberband tires on it so i think you might be surprised how it turns out. could be really unique. i've seen tacomas on here with some rims that would normally look pretty tunerish, but turn out awesome with some nice big tires on them.
