Shout Out To
Ryan at Allpro. He will help you get what you need and he knows what he is talking about.
Jerry at BAMF. He has some great armor products that are not real common.
George at SWAT customs in fremont. Great cheap install work.
RCI metal works has great prices on skids.
Toytec has great customer service and was able to answer all my questions.
Here are the slickrock pics
NO sway bar FTW
The bamf LCA skids work
SO LET THE STORY BEGIN
I traded in the 2012 prerunner for a 2014 white DCSB 4x4 trd offroad. I got to keep my wheels and tires. I had a long commute when I bought the the prerunner and now that I only drive about 10 miles a day the mileage doesn't matter as much anymore.
My 2012 prerunner build
Link to that build: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...ore-after.html
The First Day I put everything from my prerunner on the truck.
Also added my old avid bar and skid plate
and roof rack
Then I got a color matched grill and did some plsti dipping
Next was a 3 inch lift from toytec. with toytec coils/ 5100s/ dakars/ 5160s and a ubolt flip kit
Picked up trail gear rock sliders on craigslist bedlined them and welded them on
Then I bedlined the chrome bumper.
Then I did the full size spare mod
How she sits 10/10
Got my CB installed. Midland 75. With a 4' antenna mounted on my bed rack.
wired it through the window no issues
Then behind the seats and under the carpet. Plugs into the cigerette port and I can put it in my center consel when I dont need it.
Picked up an air compressor that works with the bed plug.
Did the diff breather mod
Added my plate bumper and all pro skid plate
Installed tuff leds from amazon
headlights with LEDS
Pictures of bed extender
Pictures of bed cover and pop and lock handle
Added husky liners
Got my hi lifted mounted
Got the ski rack on for next weekend
Check it out. Tacomahq.com ran an article on my build on December 4, 2013.
Got my aftermarket bumps stops installed to go with my Ubolt flip kit. I tried to flex the leaf pack into them with obsticals near my house but couldnt get them to touch.
Added my transmission, transfer case, and gas tank skids
Photos of my Grill
I got the exhaust routed around the transfer case. Also got a magnaflow and a tip. I had them dump the exhaust with a turn down instead of sticking out the side. Now I just have to get the old skid modified to be flat.
The T case skid is on and flat. No place to get hung up on now.
Moved my CB antenna and mounted my axe.
New ski rack
NEW BAMF LCA skids are on. I got a bestop to. I will take pics of that later today.
Photos of the new bed cover
Got the hood struts on. These things are great.
Got the new allpro bumper on.
Got my BAMF CB mount and a spare carrier since my spare no longer fits underneath the truck because of the new bumper
Got my relentless lights.
Yes my headlights are on.
ALL NEW SUSPENSION AND TIRES
I upgraded my toytec billy kit to icons with extended travel and icon uca's. I removed the sway bar and got 285/70/17 hankook dynapro MTs.
Got an old ALLPRO skid with more clearance
Pictures of the new extended brakes
So as some of you know I moved and went from 20 minutes a day in the car to over 2 hours. I was putting well over 3,000 a month on the truck. I just bought my truck but after all the mods 14 mpg in traffic and filling up twice a week just didnt add up. I also hate put highway miles on an offroad rig. I never though I would own a boring white 4 door sedan but if it means I can keep my truck I will drive anything. I picked this 2013 ford focus up with 35,000 miles, leather, sync (entune), and power everthing for $14,000.
It seems like the more you build your rig the worse it does at everthing but offroad, BUT ITS WORTH IT...
Got my cab mount chop done at BAMF. Almost looks like nothing was done. Thats how good he is.
New transmission skid fron relentless. Im switching my skids from red to blue.
A buddy invited me saturdays to go to pismo. I finished my chores and the wife let me drive down there for the night. It was a great last minute trip. The sand is awesome and I finally got to use my traction boards when I got stuck.
My new BAMF T-Case skid is painted
Skids are now blue
Cow Mountain ohv
Here are some awesome photos of my rig at slickrock.
Got a CBI bumper with a swing out for gass cans, spare, and jack. Now my bed is empty again...
So after working a full day yesterday I drove 230 miles to relentless metal fab in Nevada to get my new bumper. I have ordered 2 more d2 lights and a light bar for it.
and we tested some flex
Some of my favorite photos from gold lake labor day weekend 2014
