Rhino8541 From the beginning

I've been asked a bunch of times about the setup I have on my truck, so I decided to make a build up thread.

Vitals: Stock
2007 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport

Shortly after purchase
With Tonneau cover, I think it was my first "mod" :lol:

You can also see my LED blue light for the Fire Dept.




A little less stock
Fog Light Mod
Painted Engine Cover





20% Window Tint (Now it's at 3%)


Clear Headlight Mod with some cheap lights from advance auto while I waited for my chrome bulbs




Debadged, then Vinyl badges from sockmonkey, and grillcraft upper


Red interior LED's in shifter, and overhead light. (Poor picture, it shows up much better)

Home made Bumper plugs


Black lower bumper vinyl, and stock toyota skid plate





3" toytec lift:
http://toyteclifts.com/index.php?pag...mart&Itemid=53

884 Coils with top plate spacer
Rear AAL
All with stock TRD shocks

285/70/17 BF Goodrich All Terrain TA KO Tires
No spacers in this picture, on stock 17" sport rims.



Also, unseen, Tom Woods Custom 1 Piece driveshaft


With one of my Toys
Grillcraft Lower

As of Dec 08 with 1/4" wheel spacers (Wheelers) on front wheels (I ran these spacers after taking off the front washers on the lugnuts, to gain back some threads. I still had rubbing with this setup, but not as much as I did without spacers.)


Dual exhaust: Flowmaster Delta Flow 40, Single in, Dual out 2.5" pipe with Black chrome exhaust tips
Rear receiver shackle



Hi Lift Jack mounted in bed


Current as of Feb. 2009
Taillights


Tint-3%




Not pictured or mentioned
Extended steel braided brake lines all around
AFE Cold Air Intake
Wet Okole Seat covers
Fumoto Drain Valve
Tailgate hose clamp
HID's in fogs (6000K)
TRD badges from Sockmonkey
Diff. Breather mod
Weathertech front/rear floor liners
Relocated 7-pin
USA Spec DF15 TOY Ipod adapter
Blue dash lights
Viper 5902 Alarm
FX-R Bixenon OEM Retro-all black with gatling shrouds
4300K
Sockmonkey decals on bedside, one on hood scoop
Black toolbox that fits under my trifecta cover, to keep all my offroad stuff in.

Pictured later on
Shrockworks sliders




Future Mods (this list never seems to get any smaller, but it's starting to!)

Electric Tailgate Lock/backup camera mount
Rock lights
Illuminate 4x4 switch
Bed Mat
Minor Audio
Sunroof
Tiregate bedmount spare tire holder
Bedmat
Armor Tech Shackle flip/alcan leaf pack with xj shackles.



Still up in the air about:
A clever name for my truck!
APR X1
Supercharger!


I will update this thread as I mod my truck, or remember mods I've done

As of 6/19/09
6" stage II procomp lift, with 1/4" top plate spacers
315/70/17 Firestone Destination MT
Moto Metal 957 Black rims 17x9 4.53 BS -12 Offset







Here are some shots of my FX-R OEM Retro, and a few of Yosh's blue/red LED dash lights.








More pictures later on of updates!!

That's a killer build man. Where did you get your Jack-all bracket for the side of you box? Exactly what I need.

Wow, you guys are quick! I can't remember the exact store I bought it from, but it is called the 4xRack.

http://www.hi-lift.com/accessories/index.html

It is very sturdy, haven't had any issues with it at all. The bolts also have holes so you can mount small locks in there to keep it secured.

Very, very nice! I like it a lot. That skid plate though needs to be black. Other than that, I love the transformation.

I've played around with this idea a bunch of times, but to me, when they are black, they disappear underneath with the rest of the black body, especially with my black lower bumper. If I could pick up another skid really cheaply, I might try it, but for now I like the contrast of the stock skid.

Thanks for the kind words though! It's definitely come a long way!

It's been a while, I remember some rubbing on the stock UCA and a small spot on a piece of the frame. 1/4" spacers helped a little bit, but there was still some rubbing.

lol thanks man! I love it too. Took a long time of saving up. I would love to do so many other things too! My two most expensive wants right now are a supercharger and a sunroof. As the weather gets nicer, a sunroof sounds better and better!
