INLINEJOHN build

Just starting as I only purchased Saturday (3-27-10)

Specs:
2008 Toyota Tacoma 4WD/DR LB TRD SR5 w 10K miles

Current mods:
Kenwood USB stereo
3" spacer/AAL lift
Toyo Open Country MT 265/70R17
Toyota OEM bed mat
WeatherTech Window deflectors
Grillcraft black grill w TOYOTA & TRD emblems
Truxedo LowPro QT
Pop&Lock Tailgate lock PL5200
Yellow Fog Light Bulbs

Future Plans:
Sliders or Step Rails or maybe nothing

Before pics:







After Lift:




Grill came in mail and couldn't wait. Installed along w TOYOTA emblem and TRD emblem.






Tailgate TRD emblem:


Truxedo LowPro QT cover:


SpiderTrax Spacers installed. I debated installing them since I went with 265 tires, but after seeing the stance/look of the truck after install, I'm very glad I kept/installed them. I drove down the street and it seemed to handle better. It could be in my head, but I will see next time I drive to see if the driving is smoother.

before:




after:







Pop & Lock Install:

Well, after lots of research and weighing all the options against my needs, driving expectations (mostly daily driving), I think my near term mods are as follows (unless I get a resounding NO from the forum). I've thought strongly about the lift options and feel I will try the basic lift first and if I don't like that, Les Schwab agreed to upgrade to 5100s w/o charging me for double labor.

Got it lifted today...... 3" and Toyo Open Country MT 265/70R17 today. I'm so glad I stayed with my stock wheels. I think they look amazing.

I ABSOLUTELY love this truck!!!
