KPT's super white build

Hi everyone. Been wanting to make a build thread for a while so here it goes.

Most Recent Pics :






MODS: (In no particular order)
-Katskin leather interior
-Satoshi grillcraft
-N-Fab 2" step bars
-Bilstein 5100's all around, front at 1.75"
-Rear leaf TSB
-18x9 BBS RW's - painted black
-265/65/18 Hankook Dynapro ATm's (old)
-275/65/18 Nitto Terra Grapplers (page 76)
-Black headlights
-Black taillights
-EFX Tri-fold tonneau cover
-Magnaflow exhaust, dumped after rear axle.
-Sockmonkey badging
-Color-matched door handles, grille surround, mirror covers
-Black rear bumper
-Black front valence
-Shorty antenna
-Weathertech floor liners
-Home-made fishing rod rack
-Home-made back seat liner for my dogs
-Ultra Gauge



Purchased the truck new in July of 2009. It's a super white SR5 Prerunner. Here's the day I brought it home.




First set of mods was to ditch the Dunlops and add 265/75/16 Firestone Desination AT's. Also shown in this pic are my yellow lamin-x fog covers. Now, I'm not a big fan of chrome, so my rims, grille, and rear bumper we driving me crazy. First and easiest step was to buy a color-matched grille from TRDparts4u.com. While I was at it, I got color-matched door handles and bought some cheap chrome mirror covers from ebay, which I painted super white. I also debadged the entire truck.




Next I installed what I call the "bumper dent mod". This mod took me only seconds to install, but proved difficult to uninstall. Therefore, I would only recommend doing this mod if you are really sure it is the look you are going for.



After several attempts at uninstalling the bumper dent mod, I decided to just ditch the chrome one and buy a black bumper from Toyota parts barn. This meant the only chrome left was on the wheels. I took care of that by getting some 18 x9" BBS RW's off of craigslist. A guy near me had them on his '03 Tundra and didn't like the look. I had them wrapped in 265/65/18 Hankook Dynapro ATm's. This size is the same width and diameter as the popular 265/75/16 tires. Also shown in thie pic are sockmonkey bading and bedside decals.




Here's a couple of home-made mods. First pic is a fishing rod rck I made out of a 1x8. It keeps my dog from tripping over the rods while she's riding back there. Second pic shows how I lined the back of the rear seats with indoor-outdoor carpet so my dog doesn't slide around when she's in the cab.






Next set of mods was a set of black headlights made by Depo, along with a grillcraft and black vinyl front valence. I also added a magnaflow exhaust system and dumped the tip ofter the axle for a cleaner look.






Got the rear leaf TSB done, and lifted the front with Bilstein 5100's set at 1.75". Also added 5100's to the rear. Also decided to paint my BBS RW's semi-gloss black. I think it turned out great.











Check in often, I'm always doing little things here and there. Comments welcome!

Nah it's all good.

Yeah the back seat were pretty easy. I just bought indoor-outdoor carpet from Lowes, and used self-tapping screws to affix it to the back of the seats.

My dog usually rids in the bed (she actually cries when she's in cab), but if it's raining, I want her in the cab with me, so this was an easy way to keep the back clean and keep her from sliding around.

Thanks!

I bought the grille and handles from trdparts4u.com. Grille was around $200, but they no longer ship grilles. The door handles were $170 for all four

As for the mirror covers, I bought some cheapo chrome ones on ebay, sanded the sheen off of them, sprayed adhesion promoter, and color matched them with color-matched spray paint from the ebay seller spraycansunlimited. Perfect match for around $40.

Here's a closer shot of my EFX Tri-fold tonneau. Bought it from member stevigee on here. Pretty much water tight and folds out of the way for the dog in seconds.




Here it is folded up:
