Flyboy's (Cam's) build











Truck
Black 2008 Toyota Tacoma
Access cab
V6 4x4
TRD Rugged Trail edition


Mods on truck at time of purchase
3" Toytec Ultimate Lift Kit
Total Chaos UCA's
ATX Artillery's with Toyo Open Country A/T's
JBA Shorty Headers
Magnaflow Exhaust
Volant CAI w/Ram Air Skewp
Tinted Windows
Hurst Short Throw Shifter

Having bought a truck with so much done to it is great, it ultimately saved me a lot of money in mods I would inevitably have done on my own. That being said, these were someone else's mods (I'm grateful to have) but they aren't mine. It is incredibly important to make this truck become my own, and it is slowly getting to that point. It is already at the point where if the previous owner saw Mia, he wouldn't recognize her. (Other than the god awful exhaust tips which are getting chopped off this week when I finish the new rear bumper )



This is how she looked from the dealer more or less.






These are some staged shots I had a friend take because I still don't own a nice camera of my own. Although the new cellphone I got does take some nice pictures! Which is actually why I bought it... (I had the same Motorola Razor flip phone, which was the first I ever owned, for around 6 years, so I decided it was time to upgrade.)




I bought some (awesome) BAMF bolt on sliders during the 2012 Black Friday sale! (Recommend this product to everyone! So choice)



Then I built myself a plate bumper that I built from recycled metal off a construction site I worked on. Can't beat free.

build here

And my custom shift knob (from a Bell 206)


Which brings me to everything I've done since Mia rolled off the lot!
Homebuilt front plate bumper build here
BAMF bolt on sliders
Color match grille w/Grillcraft insert
Maxxima LED lights bolted to front bumper
Homemade shift knob
A/C wire mod
Fog light anytime mod
TRD Trail team edition FJ wheels w/Toyo Open Country M/t's (most expensive addition to truck since purchase but totally worth it!)


In the Works!!!
BHLM
Currently building a rear plate bumper w/tire carrier swingout
Will soon be building a bed rack
And much, much more to come!


Thanks For Looking!

Some local meet pictures.

Looks good man keep it up. I'm hoping to get to modding mine more soon but it's a slow process as well haha. The front bumper looks dang good.

It takes so long to accomplish some of the easiest (or so you would think) tasks! For example, I've been meaning to upgrade my wheels and tires for a couple years. Still haven't done it, but I think I know what I want, and have enough money set aside to finally do it, probably do it anyway... See what I mean?

Thanks for the kind words! Thanks for looking!

Haha I definitely hear you there. It's not all about having the money, it's about pulling the trigger on the item too.

Its funny that all 3 of these trucks have plate bumpers now, all similar ones also lol. I was hoping to have you build me one but john sold his to me, to good of a deal to pass up. Are you going with 255/85/16s?

He's going with the 255/85/16s Toyo MT's. I was talking to him on GTA V online last night about tires for a couple hours. lol

My biggest pet peeve on my truck is having 5 spoked wheels, with 6 lugs... What the flying phuck? So now I won't be bothered by that anymore!
