So it all started in 2011 when I was shopping for a new truck and came across the Incross Tacoma on the internet. I fell in love and bought my Tacoma in May 2011. It's a 2011 Access Cab TRD Sport 2WD V6 Auto and It's the best truck I've ever had. This is her on the lot the day I bought her:

I had the truck for probably about 3 days before I took it to StreetNoyz in San Diego for a serious audio overhaul and a Clifford alarm. One week later I had one of the best sounding systems I've ever had in any of my previous cars. No expense was spared!
The headunit is a Pioneer AVH P4300DVD and I freaking love this thing!

This is my ported Alpine Type-R 12" sub mounted behind the driver's seat:

Speaker and sub amps mounted to the cab wall:

Custom rear speakers (since my truck came without them:confused:)

Crossovers under the driver's seat:

The next thing that had to happen was my Satoshi grille and black headlights/smoked foglights. I won't post any pics of the modification since there's 1,000,000 threads about that stuff. here's the finished product:

Had to bro lift it too. Bilstein 5100's set to 2.5"

This is how she looked in February 2012. I had 5% tint before the CHP had to ruin all the fun :jerkoff:

Then came the intake:
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d.../IMG_21382.JPG

I swapped out all my bulbs in my truck for LEDs from CSJumper2003. Here's the reverse lights and license plate lights:
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d.../IMG_21262.JPG

I then retrofitted FXR projectors from TheRetrofitSource into my headlights. They're 5000k with Osram CBI bulbs and factory ballasts.

Here's the headlights with LED parking lights and DTRLs from CSJumper:

http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...m/IMG_2133.JPG

I sent out my gauge cluster, clock, fog switch, trac switch and window switch to JEREZ to have the LED's swapped out. While the dash was all apart, I painted the bezels around the gauges to match the exterior:

I'm currently working on sanding the little bumps off of the radio, AC and shifter pieces and painting them flat black. I'll upload some pictures when that's done.

Future upgrades include Camburg lift spindles, TC UCAs, AllPro Expo leafs, Bilsteins for the rear, SS brake lines, FN BFD wheels and Goodyear rubber. Gotta save my $, this addiction is expensive!

8/24/12:
So I've been sanding and painting and sanding and sanding and sanding and painting and I'm still working on my center console piece. I fucked it up twice... Anyways here's some pics of the project:

I popped out the shifter piece and bezel

http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d.../IMG_21413.JPG

I started sanding from rough to smooth to get rid of the texturized bumps

http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d.../IMG_21452.JPG

http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d.../IMG_21482.JPG

Then came time to start painting the white pieces with Krylon Fusion white gloss.

http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d.../IMG_21511.JPG

I took a picture of the location of the mounting tabs for the emblem on the steering wheel. Moose1988 did a build thread on painting interior pieces but I thought I'd post this since he didn't. While prying up on the emblem you must carefully slice through these soft plastic pieces with a razor blade.

http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d.../IMG_21544.JPG

Then it was time to do the center console. After it was all sanded down I primed it with Rustoleum sanding primer.

http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d.../IMG_21533.JPG

More to come soon...

My latest addition is some 18x9" FN BFD wheels in metallic grey, black spline drive lugs, and Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires 275/65R18. If you plan on running no center caps, please sand the rust off your front hubs and paint them!

PlastiDip the flares and your interior plastic pieces- and you'll be set!! All your mods so far are sick man. Im going to eventually get a friend of mine that works for RetroFit to install some projectors for me, but I can't decide if I want to keep the chrome in the headlights or black em out.

TacoDaddy 08-06-2012 12:28 PM

I was having nightmares about doing my first retrofit but it really wasn't a big deal at all. Just take your time and don't get frustrated. Very much like golf...

deeenniss 08-11-2012 12:30 PM

Race?
My f150 supercrew would own you biethel

Love the super white bud. Digging the wheel & tire combo as well. Can you put a pic up of how you mounted the resistors for the switchbacks ?

TacoDaddy 09-07-2012 09:41 AM

I'll try to take one soon. They're just screwed into the firewall behind the headlights and into the sheet metal behind the tail lights.

I didn't think you needed resistors for the rear LED blinkers ?

TacoDaddy 09-07-2012 09:45 AM

CSJumper2003 installed them for me when I was at his house. I just opened my wallet lol.

Nice truck man! I have an 09 white AC and was planning on doing the exact same mods (wheels, grill and lights). Now I know what my truck will look like.
