08 DOUBLECAB LIFT BUILD

2008 double cab prerunner

I Bought the truck from STINGRAY Chevrolet in Tampa, Fl with 45,00 miles. Everything was stock, except the seats, The one previous owner before me owned an upholstery shop and put in leather seats.

Somewhat of a slow build, I add something to the truck about every three weeks. I will add pictures and writes ups as I go!




Front lift
- Bilstein 5100 adj shocks. set at 1.75"
- Eibach coils 1.6"
- Maxtrac 4" spindle

Rear lift
- Bilstein shocks 3-4" lift
- 4" block


Mods
- Satoshi grill with landcrusier emblem
- Halo headlights
- Matte black bedside decals
- White LED interior lights
- LED shifter light
- Plasti-dipped emblems
- 15" ORION Sub
- JVC headunit
- Carrier bearing drop bracket

Still might be forgetting a few, but much more to come!
















I drove it how it was for about two years, then decided to start modding it.


First thing was putting in a JVC KD-PDR80 head unit ( got it for free ).
Then got two Kenwood 10" subs. Had them for about a year and half then upgraded to an ORION Cobalt 15" sub. Thought it would be too much but I love it! ( will get pictures later )



- painted my dash kit around my head unit, and shifter console.







- Got some Halo projector headlights ( eBay lights, still work great! )




Had to get some White LED parking lights from JUMPERSLED.
The chrome grille kind of looked weird now with black headlights, so I decided to plastidip it.






....Then did the emblems all the way around



-The White TRD stickers on the side of the bed had to go!
Ordered a Matte, and gloss black sticker from TipTopsigns


I guess I didn't pay attention, but I got the sticker that says sport instead of Offroad, doesn't matter anymore I guess...

- Got White LED map & dome lights



- Finally started buying parts for the lift .
Got the Maxtrac 4" spindle and Eibach coils



-Bilstein 5100's adj shocks.


- 4" block and another set of billys for the back

Didn't really feel like disassembling my stock strut to use the top strut spacer on my new set up. So for around $40 I got these





Compressing the springs


Finally ready to start lifting it.



Had a buddy help me out, and it wasn't hard at all the put in the new struts and change the spindles.
Decided while I was at it to change my brake pads.





Didn't have my tires and rims yet, and my stock rims wouldn't fit because the offset, and it hit my new spindle. so I had to borrow and chevy rim from my buddy and my spare tire flipped backwards. I just put them on so I could put the rear lift on.




The shock mount on the driver side had just under a half inch of metal sticking out which was stopping the shock from lining up right, had to do a little grindin'



Finally got the lift done and started moving my driveshaft and found out my ujoint and carrier bearing were bad, so I got a new one from napa that day and got it put on and put in the new u joint.




Picked up the tires and rims from discount tire today
295/70/18 Nitto Trail Grappler M/T
18" XD addict
( 34.2" tall & 11.6" wide )
( 4.5" backspace )

Don't think I could've picked any better rims to match the truck



I'm about an inch or two away from being completely level, but I like the bull dog look. I'll be getting a 1.5" addaleaf pretty soon

The truck drives perfect and has no rub at all!

FINISHED PRODUCT!













THANKS FOR LOOKING!
Let me know what you think

Will be adding to the thread as the build progresses!

Bought a little Smith & Wesson off ebay for $8. Mounted it on the bottom of my little tray compartment by my ignition.









wanted to take it through a few trails to see how the tires hooked up.. ( first time using GoPro )

Got around to doing the satoshi grill mod. Took two days, just had to drive it one day with bondo all over it. Definitely recommend having another grill to do the work on.





Used the Fiberglass repair kit from autozone







- Perforated aluminum SS from CUSTOMCARGRILLS
I cut the heads off of screws, and used plastic epoxy to hold them against the plastic. I had to drill tiny holes for the screws to fit through, then just put the washer and nut on it.

- For the triangle cut outs, I just screwed it into the back of the plastic to keep it flush





- cut out the front bumper plastic and did the same thing to the bottom





- Sanded the grill with 80 grit, 150, then 220. Sprayed adhesion promoter, Black sandable primer, the Duplicolor color match flat black.

They're awesome. Although I had to do some playing around with the wiring. The LED strip doesnt run all the way to the top, So i tied them into my parking light wire, to bring them to the top of the light.

Thanks lol! I spent $1,040 for the complete set up. I didn't buy it all as one though. I bought a few parts at a time and got a few deals.
