Jack's build thread

I've been waiting a long time to do this. So here goes nothing.

My truck is a 2013 PreRunner 2.7L I4, and this is how it started.


But a stock truck is boring so....

Small Mods:
  • Tailgate debadged (Going to do the sides soon, but lazy)
  • Front mud flaps removed
  • Plasti dipped my toyota emblem

Big Mods:
  • 4in Maxtrac Lift Spindles
  • MB 352 16x8.5 Wheels
  • 2in ProComp AAL
  • 285/75/R16 General Grabber AT2s



  • And once I forked over a few hundred bucks to a mechanic she turned out like this. And I couldn't be happier with it.







And who knows what's in store for the long run.

Looks great. You have a manual or auto? How is it to drive with those tires? Looks really sweet man.

Thanks. It's an automatic. Tires ride pretty good, not very loud at all which is awesome. It's a little slow with the 285s but I'll get over it.

Well, I've had it for like 5 hours so no word on the MPG. I'd probably guess 2-3 MPG loss.
  • Spindles - $495
  • Tires - $700
  • Rims - $600
  • AAL - $65
  • Labor - $400
  • -------------------
  • Total = $2260

Thank you!

I trimmed a little bit of the fenders, but I still rub my cab mounts at full lock

My MPG is like 13. It's really shitty but all my driving is stop and go and I have a Lead foot.
