Finally getting around to starting a build thread.

In 2009 I bought a Double cab Sport (2008) with 26,xxx on the odometer. It was a great truck until I was searching for aftermarket parts and stumbled upon Tacoma World. The Mod bug hit and I found myself doing the BHLM within having the truck for 2 weeks... my wife though I was nuts for putting headlights in the oven. The rest is history.

WHY/Inspiration: I got back from my second deployment to Iraq mid 2012 and was in awe over the amount of light we had on the MRAPs over there. The LEDs mounted on them really made night into day. I never forgot that and have been throwing LED lights on my truck since being back. Guess that was my inspiration. Front and rear are finished with lighting, now for the sides :cool:

This is the day I bought her, that's my wife in the background giving her approval on the new ride.

Also day one with factory pontoons attached.

Started with Grill Craft, Tint, LamineX foglight covers, and BHLM.

http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...DTRL_Front.JPG
Debadged entire truck, affixed TRD emblems on the grillcraft and one on the lower right side of the naked tailgate.

http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...eats_front.jpg
Wet Okole covers front, rear and arm rest.

And so began my FX-R Retrofit with 4300k with Morimoto ballasts.

Oh yeah... factory roof racks were added around this time.

Flicker.

On the truck... painted hoodscoop black.

http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...i_Diagonal.jpg
Did my Satoshi grill and added the x-runner valance and my buddy SGrappone (on TW) rolled some vinyl below it.

http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...DSC_0645_2.jpg
Powder coated some FJ TRD wheels (wrapped in BFG AT's 265 75 R16) as Trail Teams clones. Also added an All Pro skid and DeMello offroad sliders.

http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...ruck_side4.jpg
Thule Roof rack attached to factory... this was a trip to the Nanahala River in NC.

http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...um/LIfted7.jpg
Lifted with OME 885's, OME Struts, Rear TSB + AAL and Light Racing Upper Control Arms. Also added a black toolbox with rails on top (bolts into the Rail system in the bed with "J" hooks.

Relentless Rear bumper installed with PIAA lights!

Removed the PIAA lights and replaced them with these LED lights I purchased from Northern Tool and Supply. They work much better and are rated at 1350 lumens each.

Just got my 4" LED lights mounted behind the grill (GrillCraft) on the Elusive Elements Bar. Both the LED lights purchased from SlimCubby and the Elusive Elements bar were of great quality.

Thanks dude! No not a chrome fan, just too lazy to unwire them, open them up and paint them.

I'll post some pics/info later today.

Black tool box pics. Was bought at Hudson brother's truck accessories in Lexington, SC. The manufacture name and number can been seen in one of the pics. If you notice in the pic where the box is open, there is a slot on each side that you fish a "J" bolt down into the rail system on the Tacoma. Once it is seated in the track you put a washer on and bolt it down tight and it won't move. Hope this helps.
