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.

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

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

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

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
Passenger side, you can also see that I removed the stock running boards.
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.
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.
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.
•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
Let me know what you guys think. Suggestions and recommendations please.
