NC10TRDSPORT's DCLB Build
 
I have no goal for this truck. I want all the cool stuff but would never use 90% of it! I'm really just going to build it to handle mild trails and still be very good on-road and towing.

I bought the truck new on October 3, 2009 to replace my 1997 Dakota (318 5spd):D
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...m/Dakota_1.jpg

In November I added a Readylift SST 2.75" F 1" R lift. It rode great and had no wandering. Also pictured is the Trail FX rain guards I added at the same time, and the Trail FX tube steps I added in January 2010.

April 2010 I got a Truxedo Lo Pro Qt. Nice cover but I would rather have a toolbox and will get one as soon as someone buys the cover.

^^^I found Tacoma World just before that pic and my life changed! Also my nice sticker mods (~50 hp) and partially debadged tailgate. First thing I saw on this site was a grillcraft grill with lights behind it. And that's what I did!
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...ll_lights_.JPG

I have since removed the TRD badge and added a cheapo piece of mesh to the lower grill until I can score a cheap lower grillcraft. And I painted the radiator surround and light bar.

I had the TSB springs installed in November (no pics). They gave me back the blocks, but I never reinstalled them.

I bought a mat from tractor supply (one of the barn mats) for the bed and intalled a couple bike racks.

Fog light mod and DTRL mod
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...Tacoma_017.jpg

Then I got in on the Weathertech group buy. (dirty, I know)
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...acoma_0143.jpg

^^^I ordered the door sill guards in the pic last winter and put them on myself. I also put a piece of clear 3m automotive tape around the edge of the rocker panel so my feet won't beat the hell out of the paint when using the steps.

This summer I had a Wicked Flow intalled and LOVE IT!
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d.../81011_004.jpg

Around the same time I tried grounding the throttle body and a shit storm ensued.
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d.../finished3.jpg

Then a member (now gone) was changing from regular 5100s with eibachs to the toytec coilover setup so I bought his old ones from him and removed the Readylift.
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d.../81011_003.jpg

I did so because the readylift had me slightly nose high, 1/2" or so and I didn't want it that high with stock tires so I was happy to go lower.

Lots more to come as you may have seen above... Stay tuned!

No I got rid of it after about 6 months. Never had a problem but noticed no difference removing it. I just got tired of seeing that wire hanging through the engine bay.

NC15TRD 10-15-2012 07:34 AM

Another long break without updates haha:

Ammo can mod a few weeks ago. I have since installed eye bolts for locks but haven't painted them yet
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...livevozn4t.jpg

I also removed my tubesteps to paint the brackets and while doing so the nuts inside the tube began to spin. So a quick phonecall to my accessory shop and he had a new set ordered for me under warranty. They are going up for sale though because I just never use them and would rather have the money to buy other stuff.

NC15TRD 11-19-2012 08:28 PM

Installed toolbox from JLink.
