First, let me say that this site is f#*kin addictive! . . .So here is my 2005 Tacoma TRD off road. I don't really have any before pics to show what it looked like stock(though I'm sure you all can imagine it). Here is a list of mods that I have done so far:
-3" trail master spacer lift
-18" rockstars with 275/ 65/ 18 SXT MT's studded
-One off rack system and box
-Grom ipod adapter to factory HU
And that is about it. Let me know what everyone thinks. And I apologize in advance if the pics don't work right. . .this is my first thread.
I know that the rockstars are kinda overplayed, but I really liked the look of them, so I recessed the center caps and painted the star flat black to match the rest of the rim. I love how it turned out, plus it kinda sets them apart from the rest.
Even though they rub a tiny bit, I left the mud flaps on (for the intended purpose). I did trim the front inner plastic though.
I re-purposed the gutter mounted roof rack system off of my old TJ into a rail mounted system for the bed. I just drilled two holes in each bracket and fastened it to the rail with two washers that fit into the track and wing nuts to tighten it down. Its pretty easy to take on and off/ move around.
The only interior mod so far is a Grom Ipod adapter. I love this mod. After going through several fm transmitters, I finally stumbled across this unit. It allows control of the ipod with the factory HU and steering wheel controls, and I can still use the 6 disk changer in the dash. The install was super simple and only took like 10 minutes total (thanks to some info i found on here about how to remove the HU). Crystal clear sound. No more static!
-Coilovers (spacers are kind a stiff)
-Firestone air bags/ hd shocks in the rear
-Custom air intake of some sort
-Flowmaster 40 exhaust
-Color matched/ recessed grille
-Some off road/ driving lights
All input and/or advise will be much appreciated.
