A short picture history

(3/14/13)

Just after Purchase next to my old ride:
Gunner the 4runner you will be missed





(4/13/13)
Stayed like that for about a month. But then Decided to Plasti-dip the Valence Black. Came out really nice I think.


April 2013 (not sure on the date)
Wanted to play my own music and was not going to fight with an FM transmitter so then came the DIY AUX Input in a 2005-2008 Factory Head Unit
I don't have a pic right now but we tapped a hole in the little change cubby to the right of the steering wheel and put the AUX input there.
It took a couple hours but it was totally worth it the cost ($4).


5/29/13
Avid Off Road Sliders W/Kick out.






(9/9/13)
Weathertech Floor Liners





(9/11/13)
Plasti-dipped Badges (Now Removed)

Famous Fabrication CB Antenna Mount




(9/6/14)
Debadged and Removed Mudflaps

On you future suspension set up, how come you don't want to go with eibach springs for the front instead of the OME since you are looking at the 5100 shocks? And nice build so far.

Well nothing is set in stone yet obviously but from what I've heard Full OME rides much better. And also to get to 2.5"-3" with the eibach's I'd have to preload the 5100s to .85 and that is fine on the stock coils but I've heard its a pretty stiff ride with the Eibach's.

Again this is all just regurgitated information.
But thanks!

Well I pay for all of my living expenses and so now I have no money... That is why it is a "broke college kid" build.

And thank you!

Update: Getting ready for the long haul back to AZ. My dad wanted me to have the truck checked before I head back. Took it to the local mechanic. I challenged him to find something wrong but he couldn't

Finally got my CB installed (still needs to be tuned). Unfortunately we spaced and had already put everything back together before we ran the PA wire so I will probably get to that next week. So anyways, Here we go:

Uniden 520xl Pro (only pic I have right now) with a 3 foot Firestik 2 and a homemade mount on the bed rail. The radio fits perfectly in the extra space in the center console. It is held in place by Industrial strength velcro. It is actually very sturdy.

This is a very clean build man, kudos to you. I been in the "no money for mods" slump lately but I'm sitting on the launching pad right now ready to start back up. It's a really great feeling.

Thanks man! I appreciate it! She still has a long way to go! The problem is that once you do something you just want to keep doing more. I am out of money as well for the time being. Just saving and waiting for some OME rears and LR UCAs.

Sweet truck.

Only thing I would suggest doing is giving that undercarriage & frame a good cleaning.
