09tacorunner's storm shadow build

I thought it was about time to start a build thread since the mods are adding up!

I have a 2009 Double Cab Short Bed MGM offroad prerunner V6

I named her Stormshadow because of her MGM color

interior mods:
Toyota Dash cover in grey to match interior
Ultra gauge
Jerry-rigged Ipad mount with 550 paracord

exterior mods:
Plasti dipped front grille
Avid Light Bar
*wanting a grillecraft front grille

OME complete kit with Dakars
Light racing UCA's
Carrier Bearing Spacers
wanting new bumpstops from wheelers

Wheels and tires:
KMC XD Series Enduro size 16 4.5" back spacing and 0 offset (front wheels sit extremely close to the brake calipers)

tires are Yokohama Geolander all terrains 265/70/16
Im wanting either 265/75/16 or 285/75/16 when my current ones wear out (currently have about 13K miles on them)

Other mods:
Plastidipped grille
BAMF behind the grille light bar with Rigid Dully LED lights
relocated the horns
AFE Drop in re-usable air filter

About a week or so after I bought it

Before and after my "lift"

although I have a complete OME kit with 885x coils, trim packer and Dakar springs I dont sit to much higher than a stock tacoma. I'm gonna add top plate spacers later.
Pre lift numbers were:
Hub to top of fender
Driver front 20 1/4 inches
Passenger front 20 1/2 inches
passenger rear 22 1/2 inches
Driver Rear 22 inches

Post Lift Numbers:
Driver Front 23 inches
Passenger Front 23 inches
Passenger Rear 25 inches
Driver Rear 24 1/2 inches (with 3/4 full gas tank)

Avid light bar with line-x

you can also see the plastidip grille in the photo. I just plastidipped the bars and where the "oval" center is I left stock for a bit of difference (ill get a better picture later)

Jerry-rigged Ipad mount
I took out my stereo and tied some 550 paracord that i had laying around

I leave it on the charger so itll turn on when i start the truck and have the audio through the aux port for the stock stereo.
I am really wanting to get a Soundman Car Audio slider mount to use a Bluetooth wireless 2 channel kit to use my ipad with an aftermarket headunit

well thats it for now! thanks for looking!
