tisher49's build

BUILD UPDATE 8/2/11

Haven't been doing much in the past 6 months or so due to work but I did get a nice sound system installed and just put the light bar on last night. Hopefully getting my new front bumper put on soon.

12/25/07 Here's the truck stock. The bow is cheesy i know.


1/15/08 Retrax Cover and Pop N Lock Installed. Perfect for carting some tasty beverages.


1/20/08 Alpine Head Unit installed with I-Pod integration. I'll get a picture up soon.

4/15/09 K&N Air Filter to replace stock air filter. Picture of stock intake below with painted engine cover.

4/30/09 Cabela's Camo seat covers and Maglite Mod. The Cabela's covers have great pockets and fit really well.



6/2/09 Westin bull bar with PIAA 520 ION Fog lights


12/5/09 Tailgate Theft Mod done using a bicycle tube to prevent scratches.


12/14/09 Painted Engine Cover


12/18/09 Bridgestone Dueler Revo2s installed right before that huge storm that dumped 2 feet on Washington D.C.


I drove 6 hours down to pick up my girlfriend at the time, right into the storm. I hit snow going over the Delaware got to D.C. with about 4 inches on the ground, picked up my girlfriend and started home. I saw over 20 accidents, was driving in snow for almost 8 hours and I didn't have to put my truck in 4H once. The aftermath.







12/27/09 Debaged Tailgate


1/16/10 Installed LEDs on Bed Cover. 1st pic is the switch in the latch.

view from underneath

and the bed lit up


1/30/09 Bought a color matched grill and installed a Grillcraft mesh insert


3/6/10 Short Antenna from AutoZone to replace stock antenna.


3/6/10 Bed-Lined Retrax Cover Rails...write up here --> http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...rax-cover.html



close up


3/13/10 Installed TRD Cold Air Intake



3/14/10 Bed-Lined Cab Handles
picture of both handles


passenger side handle close up


driver side handle close up



3/27/10 Painted Window Switch Panels Black

driver side panel


passenger side panel and bed-lined handle



3/30/10 Toyota Emblem added to grill. I used zip ties and just eyed it up.



5/5/10 - 5/9/10 Stealth Wheel Mod using Duplicolor bed-liner. This took a few days and I did a write up on it. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/whe...-write-up.html

Close up


Passenger side, you can also see that I removed the stock running boards.


drivers side


5/21/10 Coverking Neoprene Seats ordered through the Costco sale. I ordered the black with charcoal insert.



I wasn't happy about this rando flap just chillin in the back there.




Plain seat looks weird...



7/20/10 '09 LED Tails installed. Picked them up from GQJET for a great price and he did a great job packing them. My stock ones are up for grabs.

7/27/10 Jardine Cat-back exhaust installed with the black tip. I used Rustoleum's High Heat BBQ paint.


video of the exhaust...guess I should've moved the camera off to the side a bit, good thing its an olympus tough and could take the impact.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p92swWOtRd8?fs=1


7/27/10 Narrow Set of Beefed Sliders installed after bed-lining them. I probably put about 4 coats on just to be safe.





1/1/11 BHLM After trying the BHLM twice unsuccessfully I just bought myself a pair of BHLM from Octane Motorsports for Christmas. Bit pricey but worth it.


1/1/11 HIDs Took advantage of SlimCubby's groupbuy on HIDs and got a pair of the H6 Bixenon Slim Digital Ballasts and H10s for the fogs.


2/7/11 Foglight anytime Mod Can't believe that I was hesitant to do this mod earlier in my modding days. I was scared I'd cut the wrong wire and screw something up. Couldn't be easier although I did not use a quick splice and that was a pain. Would'be taken about 5 minutes if I had a quick splice.



BHLM...check (finally)
complete HIDs... check (now I can actually see at night)

2/7/11 Removed Bull Bar and Installed Light Bar I think this is a much cleaner looking now and the light bar took less than 5 minutes to install. The PIAA lights were a pain to get off the bull bar but it was well worth it. I will be looking to sell or trade the bull bar in the near future if anyone is interested.



Next up....
•New back bumper
•Complete hood LED mod
•Paint and install new front bumper (mine currently has a small dent and the grill doesn't line up with the hood perfectly)

Thoughts for the future...
•Get the windows tinted
•Who knows...

Let me know what you guys think. Suggestions and recommendations please.

TRD CAI installed

installed the TRD CAI today. It was my first performance mod and I love it so far. Maybe people will respond to my build thread now lol...



I'm thinking of trying to get some red paint on the engine cover to match the red parts of the CAI. I think I might go with red letters but anyone have any other ideas?

Bed-lined handles

I've going a little crazy with the bed-liner and thought the handles would look really good bed-lined.

picture of both handles


passenger side handle close up


driver side handle close up

Painted switch panels on door

Here is the driver side panel painted.


Not sure why this one is a little blurry but you can see the handle on the pillar and the painted switch panel.

emblem added

added the tacoma emblem from the tailgate to the grill... I was trying to put it on so itd be straight across but when I tightened the zip ties it ended up curving a little. I really like the slight curve cuz it compliments the bull bar well.

new mods

Got 3 mods done this weekend. I replaced a push button switch with a flip switch for the LEDs I have under the bed cover (no pics sorry). Then I installed a pair of Redline Tuning Hood Struts and did the stealth wheels mod.

Here is a picture of the hood struts. Really easy install (so long as you check your measurements you'll be fine, they don't have to be as precise as the instructions say).


Below is everything I used for the stealth mod.


What the wheels looked like after sanding (I used 80 grit followed by 180).


hub caps drying with my dog and the work area in the background.


the finished product

new coverking seat covers

Got my coverking's today. The fit isn't exactly perfect but I think they will settle in and I will also tighten them after a few days. I think they look cleaner than the camo covers I had. It was really weird seeing the original seats for the first time since day 2 of having my truck. Check out the pics.

the plain seat...weird


the flap I have to some how connect through the seat



the covers installed:
