Ghost848's "The Whore" Build

How she sits now:



Well... figure it was time, I dont have much for stock pics... didnt last long but will try my best. Satrted back about two years ago trying to find a capable offroad unit, ended up finding this tacoma in Calgary at canyon creek toyota. No stock pic sorry...( we know what they look like lol)
first winter came around and decided to get a little bigger tires so i went with 275/75r16 yoko w/its. best winter tire btw lol have a pic some where but cant find it atm

well threw that first winter it bit me, i needed more. So i bought bigger tires (on purpose) 285/75r16s....but hunny they wont fit without a lift bahahha Old man emu it was.
she was so happy.... at that moment i was infected.


This was an end result of a few brews and bogging on buddys land. not reccomended fyi (young and dumb)

Well after that i figured i needed a front bumper to support a wich for those days i feel like getting stuck, soooo


That winch was a trooper lasted a whole 3 TIMES!! I give super winch props though , it pulled my rig completely sideways single line out of a shitty deep car part filled hole, was a ver bad judgement call on my part for sure. Here is end result of that:

Gear box was toast from that and super winch sent me a whole new gear box but it had only one more tug left in it after that..

Well that night after mudding some figured my truck was to dirty and busted my window out for a box of cigars and an ipod classic....Lame esspecially since i have a alarm/starter system in a box on my desk for a week already... next day it was in lol

so later that summer the wife and I decided road trip! so we make are way to the interior BC and stayed there for a week.... we quickly realized that a tunneau cover did note leave enough room in the box for useful space so I had to act fast!!!! Wife approval project!!!!!!!


Well next winter comes around and I have found myself to come to a localish group and start hitting the proper trails, so i met up and got to meet some cool people for the first time.

(Sorry Joe)
A pic from that day, didnt take much for pics. This is the dayI killed my winch....

Having fun waiting for the group to move


Well later that day my rear end bottemed out on the bottem of a gully and left my 7-pin on the ground... so figured time to fix that... solution??

This was made By Jason @ Cruisin Offroad... if your in Canada... he is a must for your armor needs, awesome guy to deal with!!! Thanks Jason!
So later that he family decided to go out and get a christmas tree so out wheeling had a blast then i saw it... the perfect spot to

then curiosity killed the spare change compartment


good times!!

Well after going to my first group outing, on my commute home i started to notice a weird noise from my rear end of the truck, after much research i narrowed it down to my diff was on it was out.... booo... tryed a diff fluid change first, this is what i found...


awe boo.... sorry hunny gotta fix the truck
so decided 4.56 gearing so, i have to do the front.... well after 6-8 months of research and a pissing contest in another thread
(http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...ff-locker.html) <<<<Lots of reading!!!

After all that i ordered an Harrop elocker from Australia and got it installed in my front diff courtesy of ECGS... great guys and will do buisness with again.


FInally after all that its ready for install!!!!
When i took out oem diff this is what i found!!!



Well of COURSE i have to go test it out!!


Well later that summer went out on a small trip, was a great run and it was fun!!




Well since then not much has heppened, had to get a rear diff warrentied, THANKS ECGS!!
I then sat and stared at my truck and said something is missing, that day went to a car was to give her a bath. Then got creeped on by a fellow taco owner, came over and started chatting me up.... well spare of the moment I sold my ARB bumper in a carwash.....
Well installed for the guy i got his plastic plus $$$ this is how she sits...

saw your front bumper being built at jason's shop, heard about you and your buddy needing your bumpers done before the 20th so i gave jason the go ahead to put my bumper aside to get your's and your buddies done first so you can save on some shipping. your going to be stoked on the bumpers they look badass. sorry i didn't get any pics though.

The sliders are top notch. And no problem I haven't even painted my rear bumper and swingout that jason finished over a month ago, so I can wait a little longer.
