HHI's Dad's 2015 Build

So start with some brief history I guess. My Dad has always been a truck guy, in my 19 years he's owned 12 that I can think of, however he's never modified any of them. I figured it was time to change that. He was driving a 2010 F150 which was starting to have obvious issues with the drivetrain so I hassled him to trade it for a Tundra for about a month. Finally he decided to sell it but not for a Tundra.

So on November 22nd, my Dad picked up his new 2015 V6 Automatic TRD Offroad.

I've been trying to think of a catchy name for this build over the last few days similar to Blackdawg's Dad and the FRV, but nothing has coming to me thus far.

Also I may have convinced him to buy some parts right away. So without further adieu the only pictures I have until I either get back to the states or my sister takes some for me.







Mods:
Suspension:
Icon Extended Travel 2.5" Coilovers
Icon VS Series 2.0 rear shocks
All Pro Expo Leafs
Total Chaos UCAs
All Pro U-bolt Flip

Wheels and Tires:
17x8.5 Method Mesh in Machined Finish
285/70/17 Goodyear MT/R with Kevlar

Armor:
SOS Offroad Concepts Extreme Sliders (Ordered)
Bajarack Utility Rack

Brakes:
Wheelers Offroad Extended Brake Lines (Ordered)

Accessories:
BedRug
Undercover SE Tonneau Cover (Personally not a fan)

Future Mods:
CB Radio- Cobra 75 in all likelihood.

Something lighting wise

One might say I'm a bit jealous of the non-rusty brand new everything











The truck should see its first dirt December 12th

So much to drool over already, i am also pretty jealous of all the new new with no rust

That's gonna be the part I'm most jealous of, my rig is from Massachusetts so it's not clean underneath, and my sisters 07 FJ looks like it just rolled off the line still

I just spent three days prepping mine for the winter salt fest....i fluid filmed it this year. Next year i will use an actual undercoating, not just a quick fix like the fluid film.

There are plenty of anti corrosion options out there for you man....and being in the south probably slowed that New England salt deterioration by quite a bit

Oh yeah I've fixed it now, was a bitch to do everything. Still need to replace my rusting LCAs at some point but holding out as long as I can in case I go to 2" LT
