Cool 07 Speedway Blue Tacoma Overland Build

Its a TRD off road access cab. Well I figured it was time to start a build thread. I have been lurking on here for many months and have gathered a lot of info and ideas. First mod was weathertechs. I love those things and highly recommend them. have lifted the truck with 5100s in the front Set at 2.5. I got rear add a leaf from fab tech and it lifted it 1.5. I don't have before pictures but it was completely stock. I'm running Firestone destination A/T in 285 75 R16, I trimmed the front fender liner on both sides and plastic on the rear on drivers side. I did need to run a 1.25 wheel spacer in the front.

I'm gonna do a blue sea aux fuse panel and 100 amp breaker off the battery. I have a diehard group 31 that I had to get unexpectedly, right after I bought the truck. It has worked great all winter long. All of my extra lights and additional electronics will run off the fuse block. I have a cb and a Wilson electronics cell phone amp that I will run off of for now. I did do a center console divider out of aluminum and also some brackets to mount my shovel and Pulaski in the bed. Now I'm trying to upload pics but no such luck. I'll get them posted asap.


Future mods are
Overhead console with cb and led lights
Ori nitrogen front struts
Allpro rear leaf pack
Bilstine shocks not sure on model yet
Hybrid front winch bumper
Best top
Bed rack to go over best top
Bed organizer/draw system
Water storage system
Supercharger
Sliders
RTT

I'm sure there will be more but that's all for now. I don't have a laptop right now. Any ideas of how to post pics? It won't let me post them from my tablet. Thanks for looking.

Don

The Wilson electronics amp module is under the back seat in the cargo compartment. Thanks to the plow jockey who made the nice picture ramp for me. More to come soon. Still waiting to get more parts in the mail.

quick fists

I got the quick fists mounted up on the brackets today. I decided to buy the kit with 4 regular 2 large and 2 mini quick fists all for 27 bucks through amazon. I'll have more pics up soon of them mounted in the truck. I did use some rubber hose over the ends of the brackets to keep the chaffing and noise down.

This freezing weather has really taken a toll on the mods. I ordered my softtopper at the beginning of the week as well as a pioneer touch screen head unit. My cb mount is taken shape. I'm modding my over head console to accept my Cb radio.

Update

So with the nice weather the mods can comense. I got my pioneer head unit installed. I bought it from crutchfield and I received the wiring harness and adapters for free. The directions from them were awesome and so was the price, 300 for everything. The only issue I have is the plastic feels a little cheap and doesn't fit the dash like factory.

I got the hybrid Axe/maul and shovel mounted on quick fists on the front wall of the bed. Pretty happy with how the brackets tured out.

For the past month my heat sheild on the drivers side has been rattling on the cat. It turns put the aluminum shield had broke around the bolts so I made some washers at school Out of .050 thick aluminum and then installed over the sheild. I hope this adds enough surface area so it doesn't crack again. Last but not least I made some spacers out of .063 aluminum add put it between the carrier bearing and mout flange. This will reduce the drive line angle and I hope help with some vibrations.
