My 2005 TRD PreRunner Build

Used to have a 99 pathfinder passed on from my brother and when It came time for my own car I knew I wanted a Tacoma. Looked for months to find the right DC 4wd but they were just out of my price range. Finally came across a great deal on a DC TRD PreRunner that I just couldn't pass up so I decided to settle for 2wd so that I could have a taco. Eventually want to trade up for a 4X4 though. Here is a picture of it the day I got it 5/10/13




Specs
2005 TRD OffRoad PreRunner V6 4.0

Interior
Gauge cluster led change, led map and dome lights, and double din pioneer.

Exterior
5% window tint in the back and 35% in the front
Dipped emblems
Removed chrome running boards, mud flaps, and ugly bug deflector
DIY fishing rod holder mounted to the sliding racks
3" toytec lift with front coils and rear AAL
32" Treadwright Guard Dog M/T
16" Pro Comp 7089
Smoke halo led projector headlights with 5k HID kit also on fogs
Repainted fading roof rack
Craigslist tool box bedlined
Window visors
Color matched grill and new scooped hood with insurance claim money

Picture with the new rubber at Discount Tire


Dipped grill before I changed the front emblem to white

After the white emblem

Before and after mud flaps and running boards


And finally before and after my headlights


Finally found time to dip my rims

Sorry for the flipped pics, couldn't fix it.

Decided to legit paint my wheels and then dip my lower valence

Started with sanding them down with 220 grit sandpaper and then taped the wheels off with newspaper for the primer and paint

Used 2 coats of self etching primer


After this i just used 2 coats of duplicolor matte black wheel paint and then two coats of matte clearcoat. I also painted my front calipers ECU purple to rep my school

Just finished the Gauge LED Mod this weekend. Here is a before and after picture.

Added a Pioneer avh-x1500dvd double din unit and also changed my clock color

Also added a DDM hid foglight kit to match my headlights

Some custom ECU decals from Steelcityairman


Just finished my Ac Control color change


Payed my awesome neighbor to fab me up an undercover winch mount for my Smittybilt XRC8


Guy pulled out in front of me about a month ago



Got some extra cash from the insurance claim and through a deprecation check, so I played the body shop the $150 difference they wouldn't cover to get a hood scoop, and opted for a colormatched grill this time along with 5k ddm hid kit too




Sold my old rim and tire setup 20" Enkei wt4's painted black on 32" Nitto terra grapplers for 1300 and bought new 32" treadwright guard dogs and 16"Pro comp 7089 for 950 to my door. Got them mounted and balanced thanks to Backwoodstaco (Paul).





Just added some rear 5125's today as well as some hood scoop led's thanks to the electrical skills of Bellassaiw10








Got the front Bilstein 5100's installed this morning thanks to Backwoodstaco Paul

Yeah man nothing but good things to say about them. One of my favorite mods I've done to my truck. And they were only 145 on eBay so they didn't cos me a fortune like the usual prices for these I see at like 250 or anything.

Just for looks haha. Came free with the headlights this time when I had to reorder from the wreck and insurance covered it so I didn't see why not. Didn't know where to put them so I chose the scoop
