***C17Guy 5 Lug Build***

So after countless hours of my life spent on this forum, I'm finally gettin' around to making my build page!

First off, big thanks goes out to S.E.R.O. and the help with working on the truck and ideas! Another big thanks to TW member Neslerrah for all the questions I had in the beginning of this process many months ago!

So here we go, pics:

Stock


After:
-Readylift 5 lug kit
-Billy HD Front shocks
-Fat Bob's rear shocks
-245/75/16 Kumho AT
-16" Gear Alloy Double Pump
-Dynomax Super Turbo Muffler
-HID Headlight kit





This has been a busy week for the truck as it got a decent face lift in the audio and front end.
-Paint matched Grill and Eye Lids
-Grillcraft Uppers and Lowers
-Kenwood DNX 9960 Double Din
*So far, I've been very impressed with this unit. Coming from the AVIC Z3 I decided some newer technology was in order. The unit has a very easy IPOD interface, great Equalizer options, fantastic video, and of course the super easy Garmin Navigation.
-Pioneer GM-5400T amp
-Image Dynamics CTX65CS components
*I now understand all the hype about these speakers. They've been sitting around for a while (I was running stock speakers off the AVIC), and am now kicking myself for not installing these earlier! They sound AMAZING!









Ignore the Air fresheners and the music! LOL, quit smoking recently and I just now got rid of that nasty smoke smell!

Thanks for looking!

Very nice truck. Lift, wheels and tires make it look like a complete different truck

Thanks bro! Figured I could save that for another mod day with the fellas! Plus, I think other than that, the truck is done til I get back from Turkey.

Thanks for the comments guys!

Yeah, it's gonna be hot, I don't doubt. I shopped Tundras before I got the Taco but just had absolutely no need to for that much truck. It was a bear to park and got the worst mileage I've ever seen. Drives excellently though, and the thing is strong enough to pull a house out of the ground. Look forward to seeing what you do with it!
