derekabraham's build!

I haven't made one of these yet, and I'm bored so I thought I would.

I acquired this truck after my previous vehicle got totalled by an 88 year old who hit the gas instead of the brake at a stop sign.

Here it is the day I got her on 5/31/08.



First mod was the K&N Drop-In Air Filter, given to me by Jason Harris (JJ Customs).

First road trip: July 2008. No mods beside the drop-in filter. (Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas)

Colorado:


New Mexico:


Arizona:


Texas:


Oklahoma:


Kansas:


I got the OEM bed extender at some point...
(only picture I could find)


I also got the Pop-N-Lock tailgate lock at some point...


First meet: Fiesta Island 10/11/08.


I got the TSB AAL done sometime before this picture.


I got Bilstein 5100's installed on 12/11/08, set at 1.75".


5100's and TSB AAL.


I pulled the front flaps on 1/13/09:


I got the rear Bilstein 5100's installed on 1/22/09.


5100s front and rear with TSB AAL:


Can't forget the TW sticker.


I got BFG A/T's (265/75/16) installed on 3/6/09.


That was promptly followed by getting the 5100's readjusted to 2.5".


BFG A/T's, 5100s front and rear and TSB AAL.


Second road trip: (Northern California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia), April 2009.

Northern California:


Oregon:


British Columbia:


Most recent pictures:




There are plenty of things in store! Including:
-color-matched Satoshi grille (everything is purchased, I just need to finish with Jason)
-emblems and wheels painted black
-color-matched bumper
-Herculiner on fender flares
-scooped hood
-in-dash navigation
-permanent CB radio and antenna mounted in bed
-Toytec 3 inch coilovers and AAL
-285/75/16 BFG M/T KM2's
-fire extinguisher bracket to mount in bed
-custom gas canister holder for bed
-Budbuilt skids
-4WD conversion
-OEM bed mat
-sliders with kickout
-DTRL and fog lamp on anytime mods
-Total Chaos UCA's
-Hi-Lift jack and mount for bed
-LoJack and alarm system
-Spidertrax wheel spacers
-TRD exhaust and supercharger
-TRD Drop-In Air Filter
-TRD brake kit
-N-Fab light bar with Lightforce or PIAA lights
-permanent C/B radio with a custom antenna mount in bed

I'll think of more!

Thank you for looking!

I like how everyone is finally making their build threads. FWIW, i got harbor freights Hi-lift jack. 30 bucks. Solid. after using my buddies hi-lift last weekend when comparing it to mine, i like my HF one much better. if you do some researching, plenty of people like the HF hi-lift a lot better as well. Just thought i'd share that with you to help you save some cash money's. Let me know if you want some pics.

haha. I was thinking about doing the same thing. But I decided to just sell this truck in a few years and get a 4x4 taco. Too much of a hassle. I look forward to it.

I was going to do that, too. But I realized that I'm going to be putting so much time and money into my truck that I'm going to keep it until it doesn't run anymore.
