PatHLC128's Build

Well since everyone is making build threads I thought I'd join the club. I have a 2009 TRD Off Road 4x4 Access Cab, I bought the truck new in August 2008 with 5 miles on the ODO. I bought the truck as sort of a present to myself for getting out of the Marine Corps after 5 years of service. I traded in my 2002 4Runner and used the money I had from my last deployment to buy the truck outright.

Here's how she sits today - 01.14.10:



They day I bought her - 08.26.08:



First time off-road, Catskill Mountains, Upstate NY(its hard to find places where I live) Oct 08:



UWS low-pro black tool box was my first mod in Nov. 08, great toolbox and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a toolbox:



Orange cat mod , circa 08':



Rugged Trails wore out their welcome in March 09, replaced with BFG All Terrains in 265/75/16 - great all around tire:



Painted wheels flat black with Rustoleum Hammer finish black spray paint in June of 09:



After owning her for one year I decided it was time for a lift, OME complete 3" kit from Toytec. I also totally de-badged the truck around this time - July 09:






A little stuck down in SC...



Completed Mods:

OME complete 3" Kit (Front N140S shocks, 885 coils, Rear N182 shocks, Toytec AAL, top plate spacer)
BFG All Terrain KOs 265/75/16
Pro Comp 7089 16x8 wheels
Shrockworks sliders
UWS Low Pro Black Toolbox
Husky front and rear liners
Vent Visors
AFE Pro-Dry S
OEM Bedmat
Tint - 5% Rear, 35% front
De-badged emblems and stickers

Future (aka if and when I move to a more "wheeling friendly" area) Mods:

Total Chaos UCA's
All Pro front bumper
265/75/16 BFG MT KM2s

Thats it for now, thanks for looking.

truck looks great.
do you have any issues running the stock wheels w/ lift and bigger tires? i'm thinking of a similar setup on my double cab and thought the stock backspace might be a problem. i hope not, though because i like the painted stocks better than most of the matte black rims i've seen. thanks

welcome to TW! no, there are no issues running the stock wheels with 265/75/16 tires. i think 285s would require either wheels spacers or an aftermarket UCA though. the only thing is that my alignment is slightly off until i get new UCAs but its not too bad, just a slight wander on the highway.

New Wheels!!!

Just got my Pro Comp 7089 wheels installed today. I also changed my engine oil, rear differential oil, and cleaned my air filter. The wheels are awesome, they give my truck a wider stance than my stock TRD OR wheels did and they look a lot better. Still not sure if im gonna be selling my old wheels or holding on to them. Next on the list...all pro bumper or sliders...



Wider stance...looks much better.
